To cruise

Postby Metaxe В» 07.04.2020


S ince the coronavirus outbreak, cruise ships have transformed from polarizing sites of pleasure to floating dungeons where the extremely unlucky have been, or continue to be, confined.

The Guardian recently reported that, as of last Friday, more than 6, people — crew and passengers alike — were still stranded on cruise ships.

Those stuck aboard are understandably frightened and uncertain. The sick are unable to receive long-term care, and the threat of contagion is omnipresent. A wave of would-be vacationers who have returned to dry land are launching lawsuits against cruise companies; some have accused cruise operators of endangering passengers by covering up cases of coronavirus onboard. Indeed, cruise companies — despite claiming to have been blindsided by the speed and severity of the coronavirus outbreak — continued to launch voyages even after the World Health Organization WHO declared a pandemic.

Cruise operators are no doubt wondering when — or if - passengers will return. But the better question is: Should passengers return? For many tourists, cruises are the ideal vacation — a chance to see the world with limited hassle and unlimited buffets.

But, as Covid has emphasized, in addition to convenience and luxury, cruises also provide a golden opportunity to get sick. Even in the absence of a global pandemic, cruise ships are ideal incubators of infectious diseases.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC investigate about 13 outbreaks of gastrointestinal bugs like E coli and norovirus aboard cruise ships a year; influenza and chickenpox are also fairly common.

Last May, measles broke out aboard a Scientology cruise. Moreover, when you fall ill on a cruise you are dependent on contractor physicians who charge high fees regular health insurance is unlikely to cover. Yet the health risks posed by cruise ship emissions do not only affect their passengers. As Forbes reports , a single cruise ship emits daily pollution equal to a million cars.

The Royal College of Physicians estimates that the premature deaths of about 40, Britons every year are linked to air pollution, with the cruise and shipping industry being major contributors.

Cruises are notorious for covering up the fact that they illegally dump sewage, garbage and sulfurous fuel waste — sometimes even in the protected waters of national parks.

Then again, why would they? Yes, many people who work on cruises are currently losing their jobs, and that is rightly sad. Additionally, cruises further the misguided notion that vacationers should be entitled to travel anywhere, no matter how culturally and ecologically sensitive. Case in point: as sea ice dwindles, the Arctic has emerged as a chic destination , allowing cruise passengers to observe the effects of climate change while actively contributing to it.

Residents of Nunavut, Canada, have expressed concerns that cruise ships disrupt wildlife and threaten their culture. Investigations have also found that the sunny economic impact figures provided by the cruise industry may overstate the revenue their business actually brings to local communities.

When cruise lines are able to sail again, they will do their best to lure customers back with cheaper prices. It is not worth keeping afloat. There are plenty of reasons for the answer to be no. Adrienne Matei is a journalist who writes about technology and culture.

Build Your Own Experience. The curve is still going in cruiss wrong direction for the Cruise. Who could emerge as the winners? Crystal will also activate advanced cleaning protocols on board as well as for all port, land and tour operators to sanitize all terminal areas plus transportation vehicles. Cruise spent part of his childhood in Canada.
