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

    I’m booking a Royal Caribbean cruise in February 2022 on the Oasis of the Seas. I was exited and started searching for a cruise podcast to listen to (along with some YouTube videos to watch). Fortunately, this was the first one I found during my search. Then I chose an episode to play. I found the voices to be very pleasant and the information to be very informative. This is a high recommend listen!

In these times, it’s nice to have friendly voices like theirs sharing feelings, stories, and tips about a shared and missed pastime. Thank you for your honesty and integrity in the latest ep (111), CCTV fam!
