  1. Hi Nancy, We rebooked for 8/22 as we preferred a cruise that gave us a weekend before and at the end to travel home before going back to work the following Monday. I wish it could have worked out for 8/11 😞
  2. Wow good to know Nancy! My TA hasn’t cancelled our 8/1 yet as I haven’t given her a date to move to yet.
  3. @jumelleDitto on those feelings...we just cancelled our 8/1/21 and hated to lose the great deal, but we cant do ship only excursions and didnt have an appetite for being one of the first few sailings post the 7/15 start up. Looking to reschedule for 8/2022 sometime. Great to see things moving in the right direction for FP!!
  4. Yea that’s a good point and the BVI is a great example. We just got back from 11 days on Jost Van Dyke and the entry protocols were cumbersome but we missed our friends there and decided to stick it out. It was worth it. While we were there, the Celebrity summer cruise announcement was released and we attended a govt call with one of our local friends who runs tours. Until at least 70% of the territory is vaccinated, the entry restrictions will not be eased and that goes for cruise pax “bubble” tours as well. They’re at 10%-ish if that gives you an idea of progress.
  5. No, I wasn’t pointing to Caribbean cancellations. I’ve made at least two other posts regarding the cancellations with the same topic title; seemed there were no prior concerns with the meaning of the post and the info. Glad the link was helpful.
  6. Correct. There have been additional cancellations since the last announcement in Feb....or windstar speak “postponements”.

  8. No and will be cancelling this week. We won’t be sailing until tour restrictions are lifted. Instead we just spent 10 days on Jost Van Dyke, actually leaving the island tomorrow morning and had the best time with our friends here that we consider family. I couldn’t imagine not being able to move about freely and only restricted to certain places.
  9. Just says “sail with reduced capacity”... https://www.windstarcruises.com/health-safety/
  10. Hurricane season officially starts in June, you’d be limited to ships tours only in order to go ashore and consider that a restart may not happen in July. Otherwise July in the Caribbean is fine. Warm and humid but fine.
  11. We are following all of their protocols including a 4-day quarantine in our bungalow at the Perfect Pineapple behind Gertrudes. Very large covered and furnished patio to sit on and a yard with a view to enjoy. Soggy, Gertrudes and Coco Locos will all deliver hot food and drinks to us with a phone call and the fridge will be full with provisions upon arrival; not too shabby! We usually go twice a year for two weeks in Spring and for Old Years. Old Years cancelled last year so here we are in March. They are struggling; physically healthy but mentally its been tough...white bay is "da
  12. To the question above about the Caribbean vaccines...I can only speak for the BVI, but the BVI have received large quantities of the vaccines and are offering the vaccines for anyone who wants them. There has been a pretty steady turnout. We are heading down there this Wednesday for 10-days on Jost Van Dyke and have been following the latest news closely. They've also had zero active cases for about a month or two now with entry protocols, which we are following.
  13. Whomever they decide to hire for the ships excursions that we would have to take to go ashore will be “vetted” to meet their requirements. Most operators are in essence “independent” but in this case hired by the cruise line.
  14. @Petoonya i would say unlikely at this point. FP is in April sometime and I might see if I can get the payment date pushed out to see how things are going for the fall.
  15. :( Here is the link to the updated notice https://www.windstarcruises.com/travel-health-advisory/ Summary New timeline for resumption of operations: Wind Spirit – June 10, 2021 – Tahiti Star Breeze – June 19, 2021 – Caribbean Wind Star – June 19, 2021 – Mediterranean Wind Surf – June 29, 2021 – Mediterranean Star Legend – July 4, 2021 – Mediterranean Star Pride – July 14, 2021 – Northern Europe/Iceland
