      So we’ll all need to be psychic to know on Monday to book a lift slot for Wednesday to go down to see Joe in accounts to resolve an issue that hasn’t yet arisen!

        Need socially distancing escalators to replace stairs.

        One thing I did consider. With the massive rise in infections in India - where are the cruise ships going to recruit from for their staff? They will need to isolate anyone they recruit for 3 weeks before they join the ship even. They cannot risk them all joining the ship and then find that one staff member has it as they will be in constant quarantine even before they invite guests onboard.

          When things do start up I suspect cruise lines will ship crew back rather than fly, that way they can control any quarantine requirements and avoid the issue of travel visas to get the crew through airports.

          Even then it won't be easy without some segregation to avoid a total lockdown of the transfer ships.


          A couple of the ship that took crew back to India are hanging out there, one might be to scrap as it is near one of the big ship scrap yards, the other to be ready to return crew.

            What about disembarkation how will they control lifts, stairs etc. Cant imagine all passengers abiding by the distance rules or any other rules come to that.....they don't now. All they want to do is get off the ship. And there is the question of collecting cases at Southampton for example how is that going to work. Then there is the question of controls for disembarkation and embarkation and security checks at the ports it just goes on and on and it will take ages to get off and on the ship. Dare I say.....what about tendering.

              Use the 'phone (I know - terribly old-fashioned) or e-mail.

              Just thinking outside the box - blue sky thinking comes later.
