When it comes to cruising, everything has changed.
Ross Copas should know. He and his wife, Jean, were on a Holland America cruise in 2020 when COVID-19 shut everything down. The couple had a front-row seat as the cruise industry battened down the hatches for the pandemic storm that followed.
Canceled cruises. Mothballed ships. And those future cruise credit vouchers no one could use. Copas lived through the drama in real life, but it felt like the apocalyptic end of a disaster movie.
And now, with the worst of COVID behind us, he’s been patiently waiting for things to go back to normal.
“We’re ready to cruise again,” says Copas, an industrial electrician from Tweed, Canada.
