      Single person takes up a full room and you pay per person. Basically $5k for a single person vs $3k for doubles = $6k.

      Usually a single person is about 60-80% more than a double.

    With Corona bonus

    With Cruises, is it impossible to book a single bed in say a twinshare?

  •  

    Im more worried about someone requesting the birdie dance song every night than the beer virus.

    nunna nunna nunna nup, nunna nunna nunna nup, nunna nunna nunna nup nup nup nup nup

    Plus if the virus is onboard, you just go around again.

    Thanks OP. Apologies I'm unable to find the "11 Night Cunard Sydney to New Zealand Cruise $525pp Quad / $47pn" deal on the website. Cheapest I can find is $999pp. What am I doing wrong?

  •  

    Given the NZ quad is the same price as the twin, can 2 people book the quad?

    Cruise ships are responsible for 2% global C02 emisssions - it turns out pushing a small city around the ocean takes a lot of energy.

    And as soon as they enter lawless, international waters they dump their rubbish, because it would cost money to transfer it to land. Which is how most of the plastic enters the worlds oceans.

      "Which is how most of the plastic enters the worlds oceans."

      Strictly untrue. Most plastic comes from 10 heavily polluted rivers in Asia and Africa where it is their rubbish disposal method. You are comparing cruise ships to the output of countries with tens of millions of people.

      • +2 votes

        The Asia part is true of the Pacific and Indian Oceans garbage patches, in fact 6 Asian countries dump more plastic than all other countries combined. But cant blame Asia for the North Atlantic garbage patch.

    •  

      But i suppose it stops each one of those people driving a car as they would if they were'nt on the cruise

      •  

        Exactly.

        You have to compare it to the same amount of people (which is a lot on a cruise), driving for 10 days straight, aircon for 10 days, food/drink for 10 days, and plenty more.

      Oh man your comments are total BS…

      • Shipping accounts for 2% of global CO2 emissions and an absolutely cra9 load of stuff is moved around the world by ships, airlines account for about 2.5% of CO2 emissions and by weight comparison move sfa stuff
      • International water aren't lawless, there are international laws and then there are laws that continue to apply from the ships country of origin
      • Most plastics enter the ocean from the land, the ocean going population is tiny compared to the plastic producing land population so even if they did dump all their plastic (which they don't) the proportion from ships would still be tiny

      Do cruise ships dump their rubbish at sea?

        Do cruise ships dump their rubbish at sea?

        Cruise ships are mandated to store their garbage (solid & liquids) until the next port of call.
        A lot goes on when the guests are out on land tour and when the cruise ship is at anchor (or tied to piers): Ship gets refueled, supplies get re-stocked and garbage gets emptied.

        Cruise ships of this magnitude have desalination plants.

        Cargo/bulk ships, on the other hand, are a different kettle of fish.

    'Obviously some fear corona virus whereas I fear missing out on a bargain'- deserves Ozbargain gold status!

  • +5 votes

    $2,859 for a single in a balcony room . That is a bargain. Australia and NZ basically virus free. And we are screening people coming in. This is a no risk cruise.

    If anyone has ever considered going on a cruise … only Australian ports but it would be nearly a month of relaxing. No cooking , cleaning, would be a great stress reliever.

    Probably not for most ozbargainers as age group on board would probably be too old. But show your parents and or grandparents..

    From what I can tell, these are brand new itineraries because they delayed/cancelled their Asia season aboard the Queen Elizabeth, hence all the categories being available (a rarity) and they will directly reposition to San Francisco.

    We were on the QE in Jan cruising New Zealand, and it's a good ship for adults, but I wouldn't recommend it for families with younger children.

    •  

      Can I ask why not for children?

      Nudity? Unsocial behavior?

        The average age of a Cunardier is probably 70-75. Therefore most onboard facilities and entertainment are geared toward them. (E.g. ball room dancing, how to use email classes, bridge club, informative lectures about history, movies targeted to an older audience etc.) And while they have a kids club it is not their forte. Also their self serve ice cream machine is crap and never works.

        There are other family friendly cruise lines (carnival and RCCL mainly) which offer much more family oriented activities and facilities.

    the beer virus risk is way over rated. However if you are unlucky, it's pretty horrible, especially if you don't have a room with a balcony. Look at the poor people on the Diamond Princess.

    Not trying to spread propaganda, but given everything that's happening in the world at the moment, a cruise ship is potentially a floating petri dish of CVD.

    I would only recommend this if you're cruising for a bruising.

    Hmm… to think that the Diamond Princess saga started with just one disembarked passenger tested positive

  • +1 vote

    Even if you are not scared of getting the coronavirus, you can be scared of being locked in your cabin for weeks because other people are scared of the virus.

  •  

    Apart from Diamond Princess, has any other cruise met bad fate recently due to Coronavirus? Not much into cruising but what is the risk level?

    •  

      Search online for what happened with the Westerdam. In short, no virus reported, refused docking by several countries, docked in Cambodia, a disembarked passenger tested positive on arrival in Malaysia.

      •  

        Thanks. Why can't they just test all passengers and crew before letting them in any country and quarantine those who found positive if any (as they would irrespective of the country) instead of just not letting the ship dock at all? Is it that hard? I understand the cost associated with testing but I am sure the passengers (possibly with some help from the hosting country) would be happy to bear it in the extreme case.

        My question was also about the risk of getting infected onboard.

        •  

          The tests are unreliable.
          https://www.bbc.com/news/health-51491763
          Although at this stage the risk of an infected person getting onboard is small, the worrying thing is how quickly it can spread in such an environment.

          Yes, it is.

          Look at what happened to the Westerdam. The passengers were "cleared" and no traces of the virus was found, however, once they disembark the ship one of the guest was tested positive (in Malaysia). TWICE.

          No, it is not easy. Firstly, we don't know what method was used to test the guests. The most common method is to get a laser thermometer and take the temperature. However, not everyone share the same "tolerance" level: There are some people who are already "fever-ish" at 36.5 but the most common (or acceptable) standard is 37.0.

          The clinically "acceptable" test is to get a mucous sample from the lungs. This process is very, very uncomfortable and painful process.

            @sanmigueelbeer: you can do nucleic acid sputum tests from multiple body sites, or even swab tests in the nose or throat

            •  

              @Kambo_Rambo:

              you can do nucleic acid sputum tests from multiple body sites, or even swab tests in the nose or throat

              No arguments there.

              But my response is "it is not easy".

              Sputum test means someone confident enough to administer the test (and if there is the right equipment to read the results).

              Before disembarking the Westerdam, ALL PASSENGERS were tested. But a passenger that triggered the alarm in Malaysia had undergone the sputum test as "definitive". So everyone is quietly asking "how did the passenger pass disembarking"?

  •  

    It's not like the ship is going to be making stops in China. Would have to be extremely unlucky to end up like the poor sods on the Diamond Princess

    •  

      If one person gets sick with COVID then the ship suddenly won't be able to dock in most ports. After the debacle of the COVID incubator Diamond Princess it's unlikely the same style of quarantine would be tried, but it certainly would mean your holiday is destroyed.

  •  

    Just for starters you will not get travel insurance against the virus.

    I would also check out the facilities at Nauru in case he Australian camps get full

    The virus is getting to a very dangerous situation with news of the South Korean outbreak
