  1. Yes Keith - the key will be education, education, education. It doesn't help that some individuals told the public NOT to trust the vaccine. A lot of work will need to be done to reverse that disastrous message. bitbob - wouldn't it be wonderful if 99% of the population was honest, decent, and law abiding?
  2. Actually, I wouldn't mind if we are required to have a vaccine to travel - cruising and flying. Then the anti-vaccine folks can boohoo all they want. I would imagine a lot would change their minds if it meant they couldn't go anywhere.
  3. Oh - okay. "Things" do change quickly.
  4. Ditto. I even did an internet search and couldn't find that passage.
  5. If we don't expect a 100% Covid free cruise, then cruising should resume once a certain number of people are vaccinated. I'm not a health professional, so I don't know what that number would be. Or cruising could resume if all passengers and crew are required to have the vaccine. Cruises aren't cancelled if there are some cases of flu on board (and yes, people can die from the flu), so why would a cruise have to return to port if someone on board tests positive for Covid. Most of the passengers would be immune, and the ship could have the treatment medication on board. Seems pretty obviou
  6. I have sailed on Regent, Seabourn, and Crystal. I am always shocked at how many people waltz on by the hand sanitizing stations at the different dining venues - and it is so easy to use them. I have often wished there was a staff person standing there to make sure everyone used the sanitizer. Maybe, just maybe once cruising starts again, people will be more aware of the small things they can do to protect others. On the other hand, I kind of doubt it.
  7. Wow - thanks! It is fun to read a thread and get to actually laugh. Maybe "things" are getting better.
  8. I have sailed on one of the former "little sisters" that were sold to Windstar - thought I would give it a try. Seabourn is a much better product. I would not sail on Windstar again - I'll stick with Seabourn - personal choice.
  9. Thank you so much for the information. I guess it's never too early to start planning.
  10. Thank you. Maybe Seabourn hasn't figured out the exact dates yet for Dec 21, but if yours is exactly one year to the day, mine probably is too.
  11. Our Antarctica Expedition has been changed from Dec 2020 to Dec 2021. When I check the Seabourn site, they are still showing Venture cruises and not the Quest cruises. Where did you get your itinerary for Feb 22?
  12. Oh - okay. For some reason I was thinking that the Quest was no longer sailing to Antarctica after this season because it wasn't a Polar Class II (?) ship, and the Venture will be classified as such. But, that is okay with me if the Quest will still be cruising in Antarctica next season.
  13. I too was booked on the Dec 20th cruise to Antarctica, and I would like to know how the Quest is going to be able to sail next year when it doesn't meet the criteria. I asked the booking agent on the phone and she didn't have a clue as to what I was talking about.
  14. A vaccine is a step in the right direction. It, along with a therapeutic, and possibly a prophylaxis is what is required. With Operation Warp Speed in the US, and all the other countries doing their part, I think we will have the first two within a few months. I am forever hopeful.
  15. Okay - thanks. I'm still holding out for my Dec 2020 Antarctica Expedition - although it isn't looking good.
