It's interesting to look at this thread from the beginning again m3s. I started it a month ago(I don't like the way this new format does not show the actual start date, just says '1 month ago').
At that time the original discussion was 'to plan to travel or not'. So it encompassed ALL those who planned to travel for March Break for example. Cainvest for one was a big fan of using the government 'travel advisories' to guide your decisions. I was a fan of using common sense and considering the ramifications of the virus taking off everywhere.
The cruise you link to, left on March 7. The WHOLE Diamond Princess debacle played out by the end of FEBRUARY. At that point and the beginning of this thread, who in their right mind would then have got on a cruise ship? Answer, those who had bought and paid and could not cancel and get a refund of their money. So they 'self-justified' their decision to go anyway, often by quoting, 'well the government Travel Advisory doesn't say don't go.' In this specific case, the government did issue a 'no cruise ships' advisory 2 days after the ship left on the cruise.
Now the guy from Ottawa in your link is saying, 'get us the hell off this ship'. Do you see the sense of ENTILEMENT in that statement? As if they have a RIGHT to expect someone else (our government presumably) to correct THEIR stupid decision to get on in the first place. There is no way someone who watched the Diamond Princess debacle unfold in February could try to say getting on a cruise ship in March was a good decision.
As far as I am concerned, anyone who travelled anywhere, by any means, after February made their bed. Now they need to take responsibility for their own decision and live with it. They have no RIGHT to try and put it on others to deal with.
