Despite the mounting tension from the alarming ship news channels it was still an enjoyable TransAtlantic/Repostioning cruise: this ship has everything. Lots to do, lottsa of elbow room on the massive 220,000 ton Allure of the Seas: climbing walls, putt-putt golf, a full park/arboretum, awesome entertainment (had a 2.5 hour Broadway-quality ‘Momma Mia’ production and several excellent singing/dancing & Cirque shows, one with 30-meter outdoor diving) even a indoor skating rink with shows too.

And special kudos to our doting Deck 5 dining room waiter Satyajeet & assistant waiter Jeffery! Every cruise I bring an ample selection of crisp 10-/20-/50-/100-dollar bills for distribution to uniformly hard-working/cheerful/taking-care-of-us/haven’t-seen-their-families-in-6-months staffers the day before debarking (especially the bartenders). I guarantee they can utilize these paper trinkets better than I can during the current world-wide cruising suspension.

I heard the shuttered cruise lines are offering their dozens of ships/staffs for mobile, temporary hospitals/quarantine usage. Heck, with WiFi/kitchens/laundries/libraries/sharp crews/spas/gyms/running track and their thousands of super-efficient, comfortable cabins, perhaps employ them immediately instead of funding/building temporary facilities stateside.
