Governor, lay off the cruise lines


FILE - In this July 7, 2010, file photo, the Norwegian Epic, owned by the Norwegian Cruise Line Corporation, sails through the Government Cut to the Port of Miami in Miami. Norwegian Cruise Line is challenging a new Florida law that prevents cruise companies from requiring passengers to show proof of vaccination against the COVID-19 virus.
The lawsuit, filed Tuesday, July 13, 2021, in Miami federal court, contends that the law jeopardizes safe operation of cruise ships by increasing risk of contracting the virus. Norwegian intends to restart cruises from Florida ports Aug. 15 with vaccinations required for all passengers. (Pedro Portal/El Nuevo Herald via AP, File)

Gov. DeSantis may be a good politician, but not so much a businessman. Last week Norwegian cancelled more cruises and jobs due to his covid policies. 

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that cruise lines want to start up the safest way possible and avoid the publicity and expenses of a covid ship or that vaccinated passengers don’t want to be trapped on a ship with sick unvaccinated people. He seems to not grasp those simple facts. 

Obviously, he is much more effective appearing at press meetings in Surfside and at the Texas Border than handling the policies of his office.
