im a little surprised that the government extended the ban
I am happy that they did and are taking this seriously
it does make me wonder what the government will do with the travel restrictions on the US border and how long the 2 week quarantine will remain in affect when they took a hard line with the cruise industry

I see the “smaller ships will be allowed after July 1st” as a positive sign that there are plans to allow the border to open to the US again before October. I certainly hope so!,

This has serious implications for Alaska Cruises which are required by law to stop in Vancouver or Victoria.

I'd forgotten about that. Foreign flagged ships have to make at least one stop outside the US. I learned that while on a California coastal cruise that was required to make port in Ensenada.

Tammy -

I understand the cruise season is cancelled. I deal in ocean going vessel traffic. I've worked a good majority of the ports between San Diego and Anchorage. The point I'm trying to make is that between issues like this and the difficulty in providing aid to Puerto Rico after the storm there's a good possibility the Jones act is going to be looked at for revision. If that happens there's a good chance the number of tourists to the Canadian West Coast would be permanently impacted.
