Could There Be Another Extended CDC No Sail Order?

It's reported that the CDC's No Sail Order has been extended through to the end of October 2020 but this is "utter nonsense" according to Carnival Cruise Line's ambassador.

It hasn’t been so good for Grandeur of the Seas recently with some bad news, let’s take a look at what the problems are.

The Royal Caribbean cruise ship has been suffering as of late with different issues including technical problems and now passengers becoming sick. The cruise ship will no doubt come through and weeks from now guests will enjoy their Grandeur of the Seas cruise but for now, things aren’t so good.

Sick Grandeur of the Seas Passengers

According to 9News almost 50 guests on Grandeur of the Seas have become sick. Royal Caribbean has stated that the illness is currently unknown and that guests have been treated onboard. There haven’t been any new cases so far since Thursday morning.

This could likely be the bug which is mainly known as Norovirus or rather gastrointestinal illness which causes vomiting and diarrhea. Just remember this sickness can also be found on land is a popular illness.

Nothing has yet been reported by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and if the number of guests struck with the bug stays limited a report may never be released.

Grandeur of the Seas Set for Urgent Repairs

The vessel has been suffering from a technical issue related to one of the ship rudders. We did a post about this already, take a look here. The rudder was needing an urgent repair and as a result, the scheduled 9-night January 11 sailing from Baltimore is moved to a January 13 departure with a revised shorter itinerary and compensation.

Repairs were taking place in Port Canaveral on January 10 and ongoing technical fixes during the January 2 cruise. Thousands of passengers have been impacted by the technical issue and Royal Caribbean has offered compensation for the shorter January 13 sailing including a 50% onboard credit in relation to the cruise fair a guest paid.

Even though Grandeur of the Seas is dealing with these issues they will go away or be resolved. Don’t let things like this stop you from booking a cruise and experiencing all those stunning destinations. The ship is 74,100 gross tons and can carry almost 2,000 guests.

The ships January 20 sailing out of Baltimore will go ahead as normal.
