I'm sure it is obvious to everyone here that cruisers are going to be older since they have the vacation time and money. And since those folks are much more likely to be in the high risk category you'd expect this business to be hurting for a while.

Cruising certainly involves multiple risks since most have to fly to/from a cruise starting/ending point, and be onboard with tons of people from around the country/world.

I'm sure some won't care about the risks but a number will. Fortunately one thing I don't have any interest in but many do.

I'm pretty glad I got most of my things to see out of the way so if I didn't travel out of the US again, it wouldn't bother me at all. I saw what happened to my parents (my mother got a rare disease at 62 and things went downhill for the next decade) and they didn't get a chance to do things that they were probably hoping to do so.

Hopefully this won't be a long term issue.
