So the ship is Covid free? Just like the White House Correspondent's dinner?

That's the risk you take when you don't floss.

If you take "cruises" you're pretty stupid anyhow.
They need to sink all these things.

Further supporting evidence: it's a cruise ship.

if i was the Alaskan official who got to make the call i would not let that ship dock at all.    Even if i was over ruled by the Governor or the legislature i would at least know i made the right call.

The Venetians invented quarantine (english translation of quaranta giorni = 40 days) to keep the human plague rats from coming ashore from their merchant fleet until every person left on the ship was no longer contagious. It was 40 days so real plague rats hiding in the cargo couldn't accidentally bring the disease onshore either.  Female rats breed a little more than once a month and plague is contagious for ~ 10 days so there you go.  I like the idea still for cruises. Let the ship sit offshore for 40 days before you let one person onto shore.

Checking the CDC's cruise ship color status thingy- This one (Carnival Spirit), is Orange status, which means the number of cases has met the threshold for CDC investigation. This one in particular is currently being investigated.

/Just today got back from a totally different Carnival cruise, so I am really getting a kick out of some of these replies.

And yet the morons in the US couldn't go a week without hitting Costco for chicken wings.

"buh I stayed home cuz immunocomprimised and other weird bullshiat excuses and had other people shop FOR me."

Yeah, you blew it, too. You went to family things, holidays, vacations. And now, one million dead because you couldn't amuse yourselves for a few weeks.

We never had a quarantine. We had "maybe stay home cuz BLM for a week, but keep that economy going."

Alaska cruises are notorious for being full of ancient people. I know when Mrs Rampage and I took a cruise to Alaska some years back, the other guests were amazingly old. So old.

A few years later when we did a cruise from Miami to Seattle I realized we were now surrounded by their parents.
