  1. I received this response from Paul Chili, Is it nice over there in the alternate universe you live in? ... Yes it is nice to live here, in my universe and in Florida. Paul, you have always been a gentleman in the many years that I have read these boards, you would love Florida as people tend to be quite nice here. I try to have a positive attitude and be kind to everyone and it has served me well in life. I do not criticize or judge as I have no idea what people’s individual situations are. My dad, wisely, always said, do not
  2. Wow, I jump from the Regent boards to the O boards and it’s like a different universe. Everyone over there is booking up all the Crystal sailings praying that Regent will get a ship up and running soon. Here, half the people still believe that covid is going to last forever and refuse to sail anytime soon. I guess different circumstances creat different opinions. I have a sailing booked every month until the end of the year and I’ll be on the first one that goes! Florida has the oldest population in the country and has always been in the bottom fifty percent of covid
  3. I don’t think so. They are transportation, no accommodations, restaurants, etc. Ferries are operating everywhere and have been all through the pandemic.
  4. I jus posted this on the RCI forum too..... If I were CEO of RCCL for a day, I would buy a few of the high speed ferries that run from Ft Lauderdale to Grand Bahama. I would run them from Port Everglades to Nassau. They hold about 600 people and take about 45 min to Grand Bahama so maybe 75 min to Nassau. They would have so much more control over their sailings as opposed to counting on flights. I think people would be much more willing to sail if the flights were taken out of equation. Check in could be done on the ride over once in international waters and passengers

  6. Yes, there is a nightlight plate plugged into the outlet. Just unplug it and you are good to go.
  7. I can see places like Cinque Terre and Dubrovnik, etc. when protecting world heritage sites is paramount but seriously, Key West..... talk about being a bit duplicitous. It is not on my radar as a cruise stop as I typically go to the Key West world boat races every November and I have might visited Fantasy Fest a time or two...... these are just a few of many crazy out of control Key West sanctioned events. Fantasy Fest has at least 50,000 people welcomed with open arms over the course of 10 days each October and the city gets beyond trashed every single year (except th
  8. I participated in the Pfizer study and had the vaccines last summer. At that point we were encouraged to expose ourselves as much as possible. When I asked, they said that earlier studies showed the vaccine was over 90% effective. They said they were anticipating approvals in late fall hoping to reach herd immunity sometime in the summer. Everything they communicated to us thus far has been spot on. Once we reach herd immunity, the effectiveness of the vaccine is irrelevant as long as the effectiveness is over the herd immunity threshold. The small amount of people who are not
  9. Everyone should read the Great Barrington Declaration. The declaration is worth a read. Gives great scientific insight as to the state of COVID lockdowns and repercussions by Harvard, Stanford and Oxford in addition to 25,000 medical professionals and scientists. Hopefully, we can get back our traveling lives! https://gbdeclaration.org/

  11. This may not be relevant to O but I ran into my neighbor out walking yesterday. He is a high level exec for DCL. He said they are starting up full force Dec 1. I questioned him a bit and he said they have been executing the Dec start plan for awhile and will be ready to go. Maybe there is hope!
  12. These vaccines are RNA vaccines. There is no live component in the vaccine!! The risk of being exposed to COVID by getting the vaccine is zero. It is so important that people understand this. The antibody response in nearly 100% of the volunteers is strong enough to prevent COVID. Over 100,000 people have participated in the three US trials with overwhelming positive results. It is so frustrating when people falsely state that there is a risk of exposure to COVID from the vaccine. Science has long evolved beyond live virus vaccines. Also, most vaccines are better than 95% ef
  13. Yes, upon approval by the FDA, all participants that received the placebo had to agree to immediately receive the vaccine. This way there is no risk of participants seeking out vaccines from other companies and continuing with the study as we are followed for two years.
  14. Also, between the US and the UK about 150,000 people have participated in COVID vaccine trials. Exactly zero people have died. Exactly zero people have had long term side effects. A handful, less than 5 people, have required hospitalization, most when in phase 1 trials when the dosages were being calculated and high dosages were administered. Zero out of 150,000 plus people have died or had significant side effects from the vaccine. In that same period of time, over 100,000 people have died from COVID with another several hundred thousand being hospitalized. Which is causing mo
  15. This is absolutely false information. I am in the Pfizer study in Orlando. Our vaccine study phase 3 with 45,600 people, is well documented as is Moderna, phase 3, plus J&J, just completed phase 2, all near 100% effective at producing antibodies well above what is required to ward off COVID. It produces viral loads similar to Shingrex or small pox, nothing like the flu which is comparing apples to broccoli. Covid is a stable virus with a small number of variants of similar structure, all can easily be covered by a vaccine. The flu has thousands of strains. I received the v
