Cruise stocks drop after CDC extends no-sail order
"On the cruise industry, which has been shut down since the start of the pandemic. Miami bureau chief Jonathan Lovin from Bloomberg on the K R LD news lines for Jonathan. The government's no sale order has been extended. Correct, so cruise lines simply cannot sail in U. S waters until the end of September. That puts them back at October 1. If they want to restart cruises at that time. Was this expected? Well, it was expected, inasmuch as a major industry group very recently said that they were voluntarily suspending operations through September 15th on and you know, we understand that the announcement was made with some degree of coordination with the CDC. This essentially extends the timeline by 15 days. It's two more weeks that cruise lines cannot Have operations in US orders, and we hear a lot about the airlines and the difficult times they're going through right now. What about the Royal Caribbean's and the Carnival's of the world? How much financial difficulty or are they in right now? Yeah, well, I think it's ah, pretty straightforward equation, even for non financial folks there. Like I said at the outset, they're spending a ton of money because there's a capital intensive industry just paying for the maintenance of these massive fleet. And they're essentially not making a dime, You know, I mean, they're bringing in cash to a certain extent because they're booking future trips, including in 2021. But this is hard for these companies that had to go out to Wall Street and raised billions of dollars just to ensure That they can get by for the next few months in a no revenue environment. Unlike the airlines, which have not been shut down completely, the cruise lines are if they were open and able to sail. Jonathan, would there be some business? What? There be some people willing to take cruises right now. Yeah. There are a few diehards out there and you know you can. You can see it on social networks and so for, uh, you know, certain people just just loved they're they're cruising. But no doubt this. The episodes of You know, February and March. I think cast a chill over the consumer environment and in the past, this industry has been has been resilient, but it's going to take time for the broad public.

"Dan Klein Dan. How are we doing? I'm doing well given the circumstances going a little crazy but working a lot and you know by all accounts do it. By how are you? I'm good Dan Strange Times. And let's get right to it because we're taping this around noon on Tuesday noon Eastern and at the time of our taping. I want you to to brace yourself at. The stock market is up and it is up big now. We have a lot of optimism. Tan Congress may be closing in on a two trillion dollar stimulus stimulus that would include direct payments as well as loan assistant programs for business. Now we don't know all the specifics. Dan Do right now. The market really seems to like the potential. The Dow up around seven percent investors feeling optimistic. Are you feeling optimistic? Yeah it's not even so much about the details. It's about kind of putting a floor on this. If we know that Boeing and southwest jetblue and other major industries aren't going to be driven out of business by this that that suggests that normalcy could eventually return. Obviously there's a lot of devil in the details but right now. This is just kind of creating some belief for people that eventually there will be a way out of this that there's a government backstop beat loans be a direct payments. That's going to help. People PAY THEIR BILLS. But also keep these companies open because these are all major major employers. I mean a lot of people will frame. This sort of government giveaway. But what are you supposed to do? The goal is to keep people at work and bat is leading to a ton of optimism. It Dan. Let's talk more about that. You just mentioned some of the Big Airlines and I'm wondering when it comes to the bailout piece of this. To what extent do you think the government will essentially be in the business of having to pick winners and losers having to decide? Who gets what how much. Yeah so. We've seen none of the details of exactly how this is GonNa work. But let's assume these are loans and that they're at least somewhat secured against the asset of the company. So the reality is I don't WANNA see failing companies get loans that keep them in business for another year or two when they would have died. Even if corona virus had not been issue. But I don't see so far a lot of mechanisms to stop that from happening. Obviously there has to be some sort of means. Testing looking at balance sheets looking at what company was doing but most of the names we've talked about. I mean obviously Boeing is headed struggles. But it was a fairly solid business before this. All of the the airlines. We've mentioned jetblue. Southwest those were on firm financial footing. So it's GonNa be the company's on in in some of the more struggling industries. We talked about retailers last week. Some of those were going away anyway. That's probably true of some of the hotel brands that have had their struggles Maybe some overbuilt casinos. So yeah we need to see the rest of this and some of this money might go to things that don't deserve when you work this fast. That almost has to happen. Okay Dan now. You're in Florida and I know from our recent conversation that you love a good cruise so I wanna you want to get your thoughts on how this might shake out for the cruise industry and specifically the big pureplays. Now we have carnival which owns Prentice and Holland America among others. We have Royal Caribbean. We have Norwegian are the cruise company is going to get some relief from the stimulus. And if not can they stay in business so I don't think they are because they're largely dot? Us companies some of their subcontractors. Might maybe some of their workers will be covered in different aspects of this. Obviously a lot of their workers are not American though. Of course their office personnel largely our citizens so but I can only speak to royal and Carnival I. I haven't looked into Norwegians finances but both royal and Carnival do have significant Barak Capability They do have a lot of money on hand. They have capital projects. They could push off in a time where it's GonNa take a while for demand to recover. They probably don't need to build as many new ships so assuming this ends in four to eight weeks or and people can get back out on the Ocean. They will probably make it through. I looked at all the numbers yesterday and it looks encouraging the challenge for them is will people come back. And as I've mentioned to you I have cruises book I fully intend to cruise this summer Unless the situation remains this dire of but this is an industry that's very very vulnerable to public perception and people. It's hard to know if they will think this is safe. Even when the rest of the world has returned to normal and Dan I wanna hit it from the public sector and the potential bail out here to the private sector were really starting to see some interesting partnerships in the private sector. We had an announcement today. That Ford will be partnering with Three M. and GE healthcare to begin producing facemask and ventilators. What do you make of news like that that answer some questions for me because when Ford and other automakers were talking about making ventilators and as someone who used to run a factory I thought wait a minute like how do you of the Tulane? How'd you have it on even like the blueprint for how to bake a ventilator? Is it that easy and clearly? It's not that hard. But they're going to get assistance from three M on how to make it. Some of the supply chain repurpose things like fans they use in certain ventilated seats To work in ventilator so this is industry sort of the best of the best coming together to make something that needs to happen happen and it's very encouraging

"And today, we're talking about all kinds of great test nations and Royal Caribbean cruise line, and before the break, we mentioned that we were going to take the conversation to Alaska. Lisa got to go to Alaska while I watched the kids. Sorry. To do all the lips. I know. So I still have not been to Alaska, but I always hear it's like one of the hottest destinations, especially cold. But but it's one of the most popular destinations coming up. So can wait to hear about it. It is it has to coun- I really popular just nation. So I have to tell you a little story on a little girl. My father was in the navy and we were assigned to is assigned to Alaska. Now, I lived in Alaska when I was a little girl. And I swore I would never go back because it's a very different experience it Alaska for three years when you're ten years old. I again, I I never would go back. And then when I started working for the cruise line, they were like, well, you know, you gotta get Alaska because that's the big jailing. You're talking about. Okay. Already seen. I really don't need to cut back. But I guess I have to. So I did go back, and I have to tell you. I was blown away. Even though I had lived there for three years. First of all, I was just part part of it like that. It's just too young to appreciate where I was the second part is that you get a really different perspective as an adult, and you get a really different perspective on the cruise ship. Because I was wondering town and towns are you know, if it's a big city it was Anchorage. They're kinda the same. No matter Ray why. But when you're sailing through glaciers and through the fjords, you really, and my feeling is that you you feel like you're seeing the world. Like it was on the first day of creation. You know before people started building and started changing things just really an arrest taking experience, really uplifting. And that's just sailing. You know, that's just not even before you even step foot off the ships any of that. And fascinating little towns that we visit or do any of the shore excursions just seeing on the ship and sailing past mountains and glaciers that have been there for years, and it's really an amazing experience and a to get ROY wrecking the Northern Lights, then it's just that much more exciting. I think I don't know. What would your feeling lease back? I was disappointed that I didn't get to see the Northern Lights. We were there. They don't show up as much as you would like we were there in may. And so when would. I have to go to see them. You know? I mean, honestly when I lived there. They're just show up every now, and then it was totally unpredictable. I know they say that there are certain months through the air. But I think just have to kind of be fortunate, and I know that a lot of the hotels when you do like, the, Chris you're more likely to see them to be honest when you're doing the tour, then then you are to see them from the chef. And a lot of the hotel. You can leave a message at the front death and say if the Northern Lights show up I don't care what time it is all my room. Wake me up. That's nice. So I actually got lucky when I did that the tour inland. Let's able to see them during that thank as well. But there's just so much. There's so much. It's beautiful that Alaska, I think it was absolutely breathtaking. It was so different than what I expected. I'd never been. And it was. It was just. On spire. And it was incredible. I'm like struggling to find the words everywhere. You look it's beautiful whether it's mountains or oceans or glaciers streams animals everything. Just it's such a different world. It agree. Yeah. And you know, there is this thing that you think you understand. But you don't really understand them until you see them like people will tell you that glacial ISIS blue. So you think to yourself? Okay. You know, I've seen is that looks a little bit blue. That's what glacial is gonna look like. That's gonna look like clear. I just got me a tiny little chance of oil in it. And then when you see the glaciers, and you see that that blue as I can. Heap draw. You know, era fall blue collar. That's completely different from anything that you've ever seen before your imagination is just not adequate to to picture. What does this all gonna look like, it's it's much more compelling. I think I'm much more dramatic than than even you anticipate. I feel the same way about the Caribbean sea and the the turquoise waters jumping. Parts of the world. But I think well, you know, what segue. Let's skip from Alaska and go into the Caribbean waters, and there's a destination. It's kinda new on your itinerary Yuba. Yes. Yes. Yes. It's very exciting style. Just started going into Cuba, just about six months ago, very exotic destination because of course, in a lot of ways in Cuba time has stood still for the past fifty years. So we took one of our she keeps you, and we Cuban is her we went in and changed the interior ship to put in little Cuban touches like we have a Cuban coffee bar, and we have a Cuban jazz club. And we to kind of like Flashdance pop up Cuban dances. You know, said really fancy kind of Latin American dance. So the ship is a great experience and kind of warns you up for actually. Being in Cuba. Then when we get to Cuba. The great thing is that will just has a ton of excursions the guest is from. So you're saying that you want to go see the old cars and right around in them. You can do that. If you want to go to a cigar factory can do that you want to go to a ram distillery. You can do that. If you wanna go to one of the the special dinner places, not really restaurants in Cuba. They're actually someone's home that they have kind of turned into a dining venue, but they're very internet. You know, it's just a few people. So it's really a unique experience and were the people I have tons of trying to have gone, and they're all just bike standing in mind. Getting ready to go back again. It's we're getting great feedback about destination about people really enjoying. Having the opportunity to see something that's close to home. But yet so very different from what we're used to such a completely different culture, then reused to sing either in the US or to be honest in any of the other Caribbean islands. It's really a unique experience. Okay. That sounds really neat. I I'm a little hesitant to to conquer Cuba. But just because there's such a cultural difference. But I think it's something that we could try I it's just different. And so we'll we'll have to give try what we're gonna do is. We're gonna take another break. And when we come back, we'll have some more talk with France from Royal Caribbean. We'll be right back with more vacation with the griswald. You like this content..

"And today, we're talking about all kinds of great destinations and Royal Caribbean cruise line, and before the break, we mentioned that we're going to take the conversation to Alaska. Lisa got to go to Alaska while I watched the kids. Sorry, I used to do all the ropes. I know I still have not been to Alaska, but I always hear it's like one of the hottest destinations cold, but it's one of the most popular destinations. Coming up. So I can't wait to hear about it. It is it has to count. I really popular. Just amazing. So I have to tell you a little story on I was a little girl. My father was in the navy and we were assigned who is assigned to Alaska. Now, I lived in Alaska when I was a little girl. And I swore I would never go back because it's a very different experience told him it Alaska for three years when you're ten years old. Again, I swore. I never would go back. And then when I started working the cruise line, they were like, well, you know, you gotta get Alaska because jailing issue now you're talking about. Okay. I've already seen. I really don't need to come back. But I guess I have. So I did go back, and I have to tell you. I was blown away. Even though I had lived there for three years. I by with just part part of it like that. It's just too young to appreciate where I was the second part is that you get a really different perspective as an adult, and you get a really different perspective from the cruise ship because I was reading a town and towns, are you know, it was the biggest city. It was Anchorage. They're kind of the same. No matter rain why? But when you're sailing glaciers and through the fjords. You really in my feeling is that you you feel like you're seeing the world. Like it was on the first day of creation. You know, before people started building and started changing things just really breathtaking experience, really uplifting. And that's just sailing. You know, that's just not even before you even step foot off the ship today any of that. And fascinating little towns that or. Do any of the shore excursions just being on a ship and sailing past these mountains and glaciers that have been there for spas and thirteen years, and it's really an amazing experience and to get really lacking in order in lights. Then as just that much more exciting. I think I don't know. What would your feeling leave? I was disappointed that I didn't get to see the Northern Lights. We were there. They don't show up as much as you would like to. We were there in may. And so when would I have to see them? You know? I mean, I honestly when I lived there. They're just show up every now, and then it was totally unpredictable. I know they say that there are certain months of the air. But I think you just have to kind of be fortunate. And I know that a lot of the hotels when you do like, the, Chris you're more likely to see them to be honest when you're doing the tour, then then you are to see them from the chef. And a lot of the hotel. You can leave a message at the front desk and say if the Northern Lights show up I don't care what time it is Paul. My Raymond wake me up. That's nice. No, I actually got lucky when I did that the tour inland, and we're able to see them during that vacation as twelve but there's just so much. There's so much. It's beautiful that Alaska, I think it was absolutely breathtaking. It was so different than what I expected. I'd never been. And it was. It was just. On spire. And it was incredible. I'm struggling to find the words everywhere. You look it's beautiful whether it's mountains or oceans or glaciers streams animals everything. Just it's such a different world. I agree. Yeah. It does feel like it. And you know, there's things that you think you understand. But you don't really understand them until you see them like people will tell you that glacial ISIS blue. So you think to yourself? Okay. You know, I've seen is that looks a little bit blue. That's what glacial is gonna look like. It's quite clear. I just got me a tiny little, you know, cantor real in it. And then when you see the glaciers, and you see that that blue as I can draw, you know, uniform blue collar, that's completely different from anything that you've ever seen before your imagination is just not adequate to to picture. What does this all gonna look like, it's it's much more compelling. I think much more dramatic than than even you anticipate. I feel the same way about the Caribbean sea and the turquoise waters. Jumping high in the world. But I think well what segue. Let's skip from Alaska and go into the Caribbean waters, and there's a destination that's kind of new on your itinerary Yuba. Yes. Yes. It's very exciting style. Just started going into Cuba, just about six months ago, and very exotic destination because of course, and a lot of ways and Cuba time has stood still for the past fifty years. So we took one of our key. And we Cuban is her we went in and and changed the ship the interior ship to put in a little Cuban touches like we have a Cuban coffee bar, and we have a Cuban gas cloud, and we to kind of like Flashdance Papa Cuban dances Gaynor said. Really? Kind of Latin American dance. So the ship is a great experience in kind of warns you up for actually being in Cuba. Then when we get secure the great thing is that Royal Caribbean just has a ton of excursions guests choose from. So if you're a big thing is that you want to go see the old cars and right around in them. You can do that. If you wanna go to a cigar factory can do that you want to go to a Ron distillery. You can do that. If you wanna go to one of the the special dinner places, not really restaurants and Cuba. They're actually someone's home that they have kind of turned intimate dining venue, but they're very intimate. You know, it's just a few people. So it's really unique experience and were the people I have tons of trying to have gone, and they're all just like standing in mind. Getting ready to go back again. It's we're getting great feedback about the destination about people really enjoying having the opportunity to see something that's close to home. But yet so very different from what we're used to such a completely different culture thing either in the US, or to be honest in any of the other Caribbean islands. It's really a unique experience. Okay. That sounds really neat. I I'm a little hesitant to to conquer Cuba. But just because there's such a cultural difference. But I think it's something that we could try I it's just different. And so we'll we'll have to give it a try what we're gonna do is. We're gonna take another break. And when we come back, we'll have some more talk with Fran from Royal Caribbean. We'll be right back with more vacation.

Time it is calm my Raymond wake me up that's nice So I actually got, lucky and when I did, that the tour inland inlets able to see them during that vacation as well. But there's just so much there's so much it's beautiful that, Alaska is think it was absolutely, breathtaking it was so different than what I. Expected I'd never been and. It was It was just On Spiring. It was, incredible I'm like struggling to find the words, everywhere you, look it's beautiful whether it's mountains or, oceans, or glaciers. Streams animals everything just It's, such, a, different world I still feel I could, walk and you know there's there's things, that you think you understand but you don't really understand. Him until you see them like people will tell you, that glacial ice blue, star. You think, to yourself okay you know I've seen is that. Looks a little bit blue that's what. Glacial is gonna look like. That's gonna look like clear I, got maybe a tiny little you. Know of blue in it and then when you see the glaciers and you see that, that blue, as he. Draw you know Utah fall Blue collar, that's. Completely different, from anything that you have ever seen before your. Imagination is just not adequate to to. Picture what does this all. Gonna look like it's it's much, more compelling I think I'm much. More dramatic than than even you anticipate I feel the same way about the Caribbean sea, and the, turquoise waters I'm jumping But, I, think well, what segue let's skip from Alaska and go into the Caribbean waters and there's a destination that's kind of new on your. Itinerary, Yuba yes Yes it's very exciting style just started going into Cuba. Just about six months ago NS there's very exotic destination because of course. In a lot of ways and Cuba time has stood still for the past fifty years so we took one of our Tiki ship and we Cuban is her we went, in and changed the ship the interior ship to put. In a little, Cuban, touches like, we have a Cuban coffee bar and we have a Cuban gas crowd and we to kind of like Flashdance pop-up Cuban. Dances You know Really Nancy kind of Latin. American dance So the ship is a great experience in kind of warranty you up for actually being in, Cuba then when we get to Cuba the great thing is that will be interest has. A ton of excursions guests choose from so you're you're is that you want to go, see the old cars and right around and then you can do that if you want to. Go to Garth factory can do that you. Want to go to.

You know it's just a few people so it's really a unique experience and were the people I have tons of trying to have gone and they're all just like standing in. Line getting ready to go. Back, again it's we're getting great feedback About the destination about people really enjoying having the opportunity to see something that's close to home but yet so very different from what we're yesterday. Such a completely different culture Either the US or to, be honest. In any of the other Caribbean islands it's really a unique experience Okay that sounds really neat I I'm a little, hesitant to to conquer Cuba but just because, there's such a cultural difference but I think it's. Something. That we could try I it's just different and so we'll we'll have to. Try what we're gonna do is we're gonna take another break and when we come back we'll have some. More talk with France from Royal Caribbean we'll be right.
"royal caribbean" Discussed on BizTalk Radio
"The griswald I'm Lisa hey and I'm Steve, and were the Christmas we're going to, be talking about something that everyone loves today and that is cruising with us we have. France, from Royal Caribbean cruise line That guy We love having because she gets to tell us about all the, new ships, new itineraries all the great places. To go and then, she. Says, Nope sorry you can't go Now I would never say no but we do find out all kinds, of great, information from Fran and she tells. Us about all kinds, of. Destinations, that they have Ships and just all around crews? Information everyone loves to cruise, anyone who's done cruising loves it anyone who hasn't done cruising wants, to why why is that friend why do you think families love I think that there are a lot of factors. Involved to be perfectly. MS I think one of the. Things that for me is kinda finest typically? What we see is? That the husbands are the ones Kind, of resist the idea of going out it's just like I. Have nothing to do you. Know I am going to be it's going to be awful and then, when they, actually, get, on board and the truth. Actually starts they're like like, yeah this, is, a great decision I'm so glad I decided you know I. I really made the right choice and it's a good thing you. Listen to me Cruise and I think that part of it is because. When you're on vacation Near you have jobs. To go you know your have to drive, here you have to. Try there you have to, figure out what you want where you. Wanna go I know with my family, which, I figure is. Probably pretty typical we all get? Together and it's like okay we're, on vacation, what, do you wanna do today and. When you ask. The question everybody says oh it doesn't matter to me anything that's fine So then you start well, what do you wanna go shopping really would you. Like movies I'm not a big movie person and so you could try to. Start figuring, out what people, wanna do and it turns out that, nobody really. Wants to do the same thing and so now you have a challenge how do you get six, or seven or. Eight or ten or whatever people don't, really want to do the same. Thing at the same, time how do they kick will have a vacation together. And I think one of the. Great things about cruisers that solves that problem you, know you go out you, get up, in the morning restaurant get. Together if you wanna get. Better for lunch or dinner or poor show, or to go onto. An island then you can, but if you don't wanna do that. Nobody going to hurt the kids they're, not, being denied but. They wanna do because they have? To accommodate you everybody can do, what they, want, they can get together when they. Want they Can ignore each other when they want a perfect solution I think. This is great for, multifamily, very much along the lines of? What? You're saying when you? Have a couple of families that, they say they want a vacation together but then they realized once they're. On vacation it's they don't want to be that close to each other. They want to directions like you're saying. And this is kind of the answer to all of that because you can decide to meet up for dinner only or you can spend more, time together if you wanted to hang out at. The pool or get lunch do whatever you want to excursions only you can. Pick and, choose how much, time you want to spend with each, other but. Yet you're still vacationing together so it's kind of feeling for her because you haven't said well you, can't do that. Because I want to do this right, yeah yeah you can do everybody. Can do what they, want and then just come together when it spun to. Come together without having to feel. Like I have to spend this time. Together Because we have no other option yeah and when we when we, when we cruise you know sometimes. I might like to go to the the cafe and have a coffee or one of. The areas are just go read. A book and the the kids want to do the kids, club, and then sometimes you just kind of meet up for, dinner? Or, or, if you go with a group you can be. With the group if you want but then if you wanna do your own thing you could split off and meet for dinner Allows everyone to. Have their own, like me me time as well as your your we. Time I guess so, you get both the best of both. Worlds and there's always like you said there's always someone who's never been. Who thinks that they're going to be bored but. On these Royal Caribbean ships are are not the if you've been cruising like twenty thirty, years ago, these are not those ships. I mean they have? Every cities on the there is there's there's ice skating I mean it's crazy there's so much to? Do. On on on these ships there's a lot, and I, agree another angle that I like about it is that an Fran you're kind of hinting at this too I think that you don't have to worry about figuring out your destinations you pick your crews and the destinations sobriety set you don't have to worry about your transportation except for getting to and, from the ship you know initially and then your. Meals are there your room is there your entertainments, there and then it takes you to different So it's, like everything is already there. You don't have to? Plan all these different aspects because it's there which is pretty cool And you, don't have to have that stress? Of but, if, I picked, the, wrong restaurant or aware am I gonna park or. You know do they take my, credit card I mean people you know we we have this, concern to in our everyday life and. When we go on vacation especially for. Knowing to a place that we're not familiar with then we just, have them even more Oh and I think the other thing is that with at least with. Our Christian people will reeducation with our family vacation with all. Different age groups vacation kids with parents with grandparents and honestly it's hard to figure out what everybody wants to do, it's hard to find those things that are perfect for everyone, and then again the great thing about a cruise, is especially if you're traveling with kids, if your kids want to be with you all, the time that's wonderful and they can do it. And there's no problem but if they want to, kind of be separate and more independent, and kind of feel like they're? More in, charge, the kids, programs, are so good and so complete that I I. Have to tell you that so, years ago when my my sister's kids for small we went, cruising with them and she had like A twelve year old son And he would be an kids. Program all day every day and I remember my sister and I were having lunch Afternoon by the pool and, he walked, by with, his little. Band of brothers you now from the kids program and as. He walked past this, he said hi, mom hi, Fran I just wanted to let you know you should really. Try the drink indicated a it's really outstanding just hysterical This twelve, year old, Nath things, that he's. Like JAMES BOND or them superhero character you know Mr. sophisticated. Walking through the parole, act on a, cruise ship It's great it's great for the kids the kids I'm. I mean we're in. Our kids go they instantly find. Like, lifelong friends they're they're off the they want to leave dinner to go to the kids club they. Wanna go. Swimming they wanna play with their friends they they love that aspect of as cool as last time. They actually, wanted to spend time with us it was it was nice I. Getting all Dr Get. It, I don't know okay so we're coming. Up on the holidays I was. Going to ask you I think there are different holiday. Cruise getaways coming up There are only about those I'll answer always the big time for families, to create because you, know as we've just insane it addresses all of those challenges that when that you have when you, near vacationing with your family and plus You know nobody. Has to get up in the morning and makes bad nobody has to, plan meals or clean, up I don't mind the cooking part I actually enjoy cooking part but I totally hate the cleaning out part So that all disappears All you have to do. Is really enjoy it, the. Ships.

Have to tell you a little story, on I, was a little girl my father was in the navy and we were assigned who is assigned to Alaska Thou I lived in Alaska when I was. A little girl and and I swore I would never. Go back because it's a. Very different experience of it all ASCA for three years when you're ten years old I, again I find never would go back and then when I started working with the cruise line they were like well you got to get Alaska because that's the big yes you know what you're talking about Okay I've already seen that. I really don't need to come back. But I guess I have here so I did. Go back and I have to tell you I was blown away mean even though I had lived there for three years I was, just part part of that it's just too young to appreciate where I was the second, part is that. You get a really different perspective as an adult and, get a really different, perspective, from, the cruise ship because, I was wondering a town, in towns are you know if it's the biggest city? It was, encouraged they're kind of the same. No matter where you are but when you're sailing prudence, glaciers and to, the, fjords you really in my feeling is that you, you. Feel like you're seeing the world Like it was. On the first day of creation you, know before people started. Building and started changing things just really, breathtaking experience really uplifting and that's, just sailing you know that's just not even before you even step foot off the ship today any of that and fascinating little towns that. We visit or do any of the. Short excursions being on a ship and sailing pass. This mountains and glaciers that have been there for spas thirteen years and it's really an amazing experience to get ROY lacking the Northern, Lights then it's just that much more exciting I think I don't know what would your, feeling back I. Was disappointed that I didn't get to see the Northern, Lights we were there, they, don't, show up as much, as you would like we, were there in may and so when would I have Go to see them You, know I mean honestly, when I lived there they just show up every now and then. It was totally unpredictable I know they say that there are certain, months of the air but I think you just have to kind of be fortunate and I know that a lot of the hotels when you, do like the Chris you're more likely to see, them to be honest when, you're doing the tour then then you see them from the chef and a. Lot of the hotel you can leave a message at the, front death and say if the, Northern Lights show up I don't care what time it is call may, remain wake me. Up and that's nice So I, actually got lucky when I, did that the tour inland and able to see them during that thank Asian. Twelve but there's just so much there's so much it's beautiful, that Alaska I think it was, absolutely breathtaking it was so different than what I expected I'd never been, and it was It was just On inspiring. It was incredible I'm struggling to find the words, everywhere you, look it's beautiful whether it's mountains or, oceans, or glaciers. Streams animals everything just it's such. A different world I still feel like There is this thing that, you think you understand but you don't really understand them. Until you see them like people will tell you. That glacial ISIS blue so, you. Think to, yourself okay you know I've seen is that looks. A little bit blue that's what glacial. Is gonna look like that's going. To look like clear I just got, maybe a tiny little you. Know oil in it and then when you see the glaciers and you see that that, blue as, he draw you know uniform blue collar that's completely different from anything that you had ever seen before that your imagination is just not. Adequate to to picture what does this? All gonna look like it's. It's much more compelling I think I'm much more dramatic than. Than even you anticipate I feel the same way about the Caribbean sea and the Turquoise waters So I'm jumping World, but, I think well you. Know what segue let's skip from Alaska and go into the Caribbean waters and. There's a destination it's kind new on. Your. Itinerary Yuba yes Yes it's very exciting style just started going. To cure but just about six, months ago NSF fairy exotic destination, because of course. In a lot of ways in Cuba time has stood still for the past fifty years so we took one of our but she keeps you and we Cuban is her we went in and changed the ship the interior ship to put in. Little Cuban touches, like, we have a Cuban. Coffee bar and we have a Cuban das- club and we to kind of. Like Flashdance pop up Cuban dances with. The Really ANSI kind of Latin American dance so the ship, is a great experience and it kind of you up for actually being in Cuba then when we get, to Cuba the great. Thing is, that Royal Caribbean just has. A ton of excursions gas choose, from so if you're a big thing is that you want to go see the old cars and. Right, around in them you can do that if you. Wanna go to a cigar factory can do that you want to go, to a random distillery you can do that if you wanna go to one of the. The special dinner places not really, restaurants and humor there actually someone's, home that they. Have kind of turned into a dining venue but they're very internet you know it's just a few people so it's really a unique experience and we're the people I have tons of trying to have gone and they're all just like standing Mind getting ready. To go back again it's getting create feedback about the destination about, you know people really enjoying having the opportunity to see something that's close to home but yet so very, different from what we.
