  4. Today
  5. Thanks to all the authorities for making the right decision. Passengers must be so relieved to finally be heading home after such an ordeal. Wishing them a safe trip home! In the meantime, wishing the remaining 26 quarantined on board with mild symptoms a speedy recovery, and thinking of the families of the four deceased.
  6. Yesterday
  7. After much political and humanitarian debates which garnered worldwide attention, Holland America's Zaandam of the Seas finally docked at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale Thursday, marking an end to the widely publicized cruise ship sailing. Upon heavy coordination with local authorities, passengers were slowly escorted off the ship and returned home (still in progress). This video, taken firsthand by Jason of CruiseCrazies, shows one of the heavily escorted police motorcades - Taking the passengers deemed ok to travel, directly onto the tarmac at FLL airport in Fort Lauderdale, where they boarded a plane for the next leg of the long-awaited journey home.
  8. A Venezuelan naval boat picked and lost a fight with a passenger cruise liner off the country's northern coast this week, ramming it several times before accidentally taking on water and sinking. The proprietors of the German-owned RCGS Resolute cruise ship said its vessel had been receiving maintenance in international waters on Tuesday morning when the armed navy boat approached it and ordered it to change direction. The encounter escalated when, according to the company, "gun shots were fired and, shortly thereafter, the navy vessel approached the starboard side at speed with an angle of 135 degrees and purposely collided with the RCGS Resolute." "The navy vessel continued to ram the starboard bow in an apparent attempt to turn the ship's head towards Venezuelan territorial waters," Columbia Cruise Services' statement read. However, the RCGS Resolute is reinforced with steel plating to help it navigate through ice. "While the RCGS Resolute sustained minor damages, not affecting vessel's seaworthiness, it occurs that the navy vessel suffered severe damages while making contact with the ice-strengthened bulbous bow of the ice-class expedition cruise vessel RCGS Resolute and started to take water," the company's statement said. A total of 32 crew members were aboard the liner, but no passengers were. Venezuela's navy has acknowledged the incident, though it differs in its version of events. According to Venezuela, the incident occurred in the early hours of Tuesday in Venezuelan waters, next to Isla La Tortuga. Columbia CS says it took place in International waters, near Willemsted, Curacao. The country's defense ministry suggested the Resolute may have been carrying mercenaries ready to attack Venezuela. The nation's embattled President, Nicolas Maduro, has often accused the US government and its allies of attempting to overthrow him since much of the international community backed Juan Guaido's challenge to his presidency. A search and rescue mission successfully retrieved the crew from the sinking patrol boat, the Venezuelan navy said in a statement. CNN's Stefano Pozzebon and Sara Mazloumsaki contributed reporting.

Plan your cruise holiday according to your wishes, but, remember to take a moment and enjoy every aspect of it.

  26. Miami-based Carnival Corp. announced Thursday it would be using cruise ships from four of its brands to serve as temporary hospitals in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. The world’s largest cruise line suggested its ships could be used mainly to treat non-coronavirus patients, in order to free up beds in land-based hospitals for COVID-19 patients. The company said it could provide up to 1,000 hospital rooms and would be able to quickly provide the necessary medical equipment, including intensive care units. The announcement came after President Trump said at a White House press conference that he had spoken with Carnival Chairman Micky Arison about the possibility. Trump said during a briefing that he would present the offer to New York and California during a teleconference later Thursday with all 50 governors. Carnival employees would provide things such as food and beverage, cleaning services, and would work with local medical personnel to handle the treatment of patients, a statement read. "These temporary cruise ship hospital rooms can be quickly converted to install and connect remote patient monitoring devices over the ship’s high-speed network -- providing cardiac, respiratory, oxygen saturation and video monitoring capabilities," Carnival said in a statement. "The rooms also have bathroom facilities, private balconies with access to sun and fresh air, as well as isolation capabilities, as needed." Two U.S. Navy hospital ships will also join the effort to fight the novel coronavirus. Florida so far has 360 confirmed cases and 9 deaths.
