If you were planning to sail to Canada by cruise ship, change your plans because Canada has issued a 1 year cruise ship ban. Until March 2022, no cruise ship can dock in Canadian Ports, only other vessels. Here is the link. https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/cruises/2021/02/04/canada-bans-cruise-ships-canadian-waters-until-march-2022/4396613001/

Honestly, I think Australia should also issue a similar ban so it too can be safer from the pandemic. That way, P&O Cruises Australia can be forced to merge back into Princess Cruises. I'm American btw.

This action will be the death knell for many tourist related businesses in the Alaska Panhandle, including Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway (including the White Pass & Yukon RR), and Hoonah, where NCL completed a second landing at Icy Point.

Seattle businesses are reeling from this recent news, which had a negative effect in 2020. Seattle is the southern terminus for Norwegian, Holland America and Princess cruises, each of which embarked three vessels (1 each) on Saturday and again on Sunday.

Joy and Bliss are being cold stored at scattered ports. Perhaps you know of the Princess and Holland Amerca ships that were staged in Seattle.

Victoria and Vancouver BC are all reporting negative vibes from todays release:
