A Look Back At One Year Since The Restart

It’s been a year since the cruise restart. Let’s take a look back.

In this episode we take a look back at the year as we celebrate one full year of the cruise line’s restart and return to service. 

Just one year ago, we were standing by as the world resumed cruising again. In 2020 alone 576,000 cruise jobs had been lost, and it was time to get back to cruising!

Now, one year later, Shipmate app is reporting that 91.4% of cruisers in their community are planning to cruise in the upcoming year. 

Here is an outline of what I’ll cover in this podcast.

What have we learned? 

  • How we feel about cruise travel now
  • Our thoughts on the crew
  • What the cruise industry mean to the world financially 
  • The reality of cruise travel

What has changed?

  • Travel is complex
  • Changes for the better?

Where are we now?

  • Let’s talk capacity
  • CDC releases it’s hold on the industry
  • The companies that didn’t survive

Where are we going? As an industry

  • Endemic vs pandemic?
  • The lines need to recuperate their losses

    Very relatable host(s) who it’s easy to feel like you’re just sitting at a table with while they talk and banter enthusiastically about cruise stuff. Working hard for our attention, and I appreciate that.

    I started listening last year when I booked my very first cruise, which is a transatlantic this April with my mom! The info you share has been incredibly helpful! I love your bright personality and enthusiasm for cruising. I listen on my way to work in the mornings and get so excited about my own cruise! Thank you, and Mr CruiseTips, so much for this podcast!

    Going on my first ever cruise this summer to Alaska and trying to learn as much as possible. Really enjoy this podcast. Your voices are so easy to listen to, love the banter, and so much good information. My only wish is that you knew Celebrity because that’s who I’m cruising with. That aside, thank you.
