Where Are the Cruise Ships Now? UPDATE 12:01 PM EST - Thursday 1/21/2021

With the temporary suspension of cruise operations, cruise lines are being forced to lay ships up in various locations world wide. With the majority of the ships located off the coast of Florida and between the islands of the Bahamas, many of the ships continue to move and sail. Those charged with maintaining the ships while not carrying passengers stated that ships in motion are easier to monitor and less likely to encounter mechanical or structural issues. All of the operations (including the plumbing) on board the ship is being exercised. In addition, ships need to periodically go to sea (deep water) to create water for consumption and use on board.
