Who the fuck is going to take them up on this offer?
Carnival Cruise Line announced Monday it will start cruises again with a fraction of its fleet this summer.
The cruise company, one of the largest in the world, did not say what changes caused by the coronavirus pandemic will be in place or whether itineraries will be altered. Cruises are set to start Aug. 1 on eight ships sailing from ports in Miami, Central Florida’s Port Canaveral and Galveston, Tex.
“We are committed to supporting all public health efforts to manage the covid-19 situation,” the company said in a statement. “We are taking a measured approach, focusing our return to service on a select number of homeports where we have more significant operations that are easily accessible by car for the majority of our guests.”
(Emphasis mine.) The tacit acknowledgement that planes probably won’t be flying at the same time when they expect a bunch of suckers to board their flagship, the Carnival COVID-19, is hi-fucking-larious.
“Let’s pack up a car with Ma, Pa and the kids and get on one of these floating petri dishes, because the planes ain’t flying, but we want to take the risk that we’ll be marooned off the coast if the ‘rona hits and we all get sick. Plus, we might even get diarrhea from the buffet!”
Talk about succumbing to stupid…
