Lots of big cruise news in this week’s Cruise Tips TV Unplugged podcast

Today, we’re covering this week’s big cruise news developments in the cruise travel industry. From the no sail order update to Princess cruises new ship, we’ll fill you in. We’ll start with an update on the CDC no-sail order.

White House Intervenes in Cruise Ship Ban

The CDC Director, Robert Redfield was reportedly overruled today in the White House situation room.

Axios is reporting that Redfield suggested extending the No-Sail Order through February 2021, because of the virus’ severity and the vulnerability for spread on cruises.

However, Vice President Mike Pence, who was running the meeting, told Redfield that they would be “proceeding with a different plan”, according to two task force members. That different plan appears to be, at first, extending the Cruise Ship Ban just one month past it’s slated expiration date, through October, 2020.

Other cruise news topics covered in the podcast include:

  • More Carnival cruise cancellations
  • Enchanted Princess Joins Fleet
  • Princess add a ship to the west coast
  • Rotterdam Reaches Next Building Milestone
  • Costa Smeralda Restarts

  • Love this podcast - so many tips!
    November 8, 2023 by Berrmic from United States

    I’ve listened to many cruise related podcasts and this is the best by far. So many wonderful tips! I’ve become a carry-on only traveler because of CTTV and love being able to avoid the long walk to retrieve my luggage. I took the cruise line personality quiz on the CTTV website and we absolutely loved our first Holland America cruise. Much better fit than our previous cruises. I am always going back to previous episodes to pick up tips and advice I may have missed. Thank you CTTV!

    I started listening to the podcast about a month ago. They are so helpful for anyone who is taking a cruise, first or 50th. I’m going on my second cruise soon and just from listening I booked another! Thanks so much for giving me so many tips for my next cruise.
