Can Cruise Lines Recover From Coronavirus? 4.5

The COVID-19 outbreak has laid waste to entire sectors of the global economy, but none faster than the cruise business. The pandemic has basically shut it down with the three largest publicly traded cruise companies suspending some, if not all, of their operations. Carnival, the world's largest cruise line, has been at the heart of the industry's struggle.

America can definitely move forward without a cruise industry that doesn’t even pay any U.S. taxes

Why should we bail out cruise lines when they go to other countries to not pay taxes. Don’t listen to politicians. The stimulus is not government money, it’s our money.

Cruise Lines : "help us!"

Uncle Sam: *counting his money* "Oh I'm sorry. Did I stutter when I asked you to pay taxes before???"

Lol. Legal “Tax evasion” practices coming back to bite their asses. I mean it’s sad that employees have to suffer, but these businesses have exploited the system for their benefit and at the expense of their employees.

Elon Musk: well, well, well, old gas-powered ships are out of business, it's time to introduce Tesla Amphibian.

The question should be: “Should they recover? “. Norovirus, measles, ... is a litany of DESIGN FAILURES. These ships are poorly designed for robustness in general. Remember the one that had a small fire and all the toilets shut down? The air conditioning system seems to act as a virus transmission system. The crew of the ships with active epidemics on board still eat together in cafeterias. The operating protocols do not have sufficient training for crew. The industry needs a whole new redesign. In addition, the poor environmental record of these companies should be kept in mind.

They want a bail out from the US. They are registered in other countries to avoid paying US taxes. Let them go under.

The thought of being on a cruise is frightening actually....

Went on my first cruise in 2019, can't wait to get back whenever we get pass all this stuff. I don't think taxpayers should have to pay for a bailout since they aren't based in USA.

Cruise ships are the most disgusting things even before CV19. These ships are registered in places like Panama, let them go back to their home ports and beg those governments for assistance,

They should meet certain environmental, tax and ethical requirements before being handed bailout money. IMO
