    FWIW, the report I read just said that they were selling 18 of their ships, not scrapping them.

    I wonder if those lifeboats would be fun?

    "Among the ships being recycled at Aliaga, are three Carnival cruise liners — Inspiration, Imagination and Fantasy, which had just been refurbished in 2019. The world’s largest cruise company reported a loss of $2.9 billion in the quarter ending on Aug. 31 and announced that it would remove 13 of its older, less efficient ships from its global fleet."

    Where might I find updated info on what percent capacity the resorts and boats will be operating at in December. If you have a website I’ll bookmark it so I don’t keep asking the same question.

    The Governor of Q Roo, Carlos, makes the announcement every week on Thursday at 8pm - it states what our color code and opening percentages are - I just follow him on Facebook and you see the posts - Facebook / Twitter are the news sources here. Please don't confuse them with the Federal government ones that come out on Fridays (the look a little different), Carlos is the dude here, what's on his page, what he says the rules are - that's what they are

    Carlos Joaquín

    He'll post two pictures, one for the south of Q Roo and one for the north, here's last weeks picture for the north:

    Thanks @ChuckP ! My Spanish isn't what it should be, but I got out of that resorts are at 60%, public transportation at 50% - but I didn't see the word 'bota'. Would they also be at 60%? I'm following him now - thanks so much!

    They post an English version of the chart here. You have to scroll down a bit - and it says diving is at 60%. :)

    Well that takes the fun of guessing out of it LOL.

    Diving has been at 60% since back in September I think, been awhile.

    Those things are designed to keep people alive, nothing else. Imagine being crammed in there with a capacity load of seasick landlubbers in rough seas with no windows and limited ventilation. I think I'd rather take my chances out in the open with a life vest.
