  1. It seems more like a glorified ferry. People getting on and getting off three days in a row.
  2. I am so glad I went on July 10. I would not and will not travel on a cruise that was not 100% vaccinated guests. I just looked at a fabulous Celebrity itinerary and would have booked Aqua Class but they are accepting unvaccinated guests. Hard stop for that whether Crystal or Celebrity or any other cruise line. I guess they will accept unvaccinated on the Bermuda cruise. Can’t wait to hear what the extremely careful to avoid covid cheerleaders will say about this. A full refund should be offered to those that have booked and now want to cancel.
  3. Seemed prudent to me (and others I met on the 7/10 cruise) to a avoid a possible travel nightmare. I am heading to Europe this week and the country and resort I am going to do not require testing. I just have to upload my vaccination CDC card. I will have to test before I return. Sorry, for some reason my first paragraph was inserted to your post, instead of reply.
  4. There is no Marriott in Nassau. Did they say the Courtyard which is under the Marriott umbrella. Its just common sense to get tested before you fly to Nassau. I did on the day before my flight just to be safe. Others I spoke to onboard did also. Most drug store chains do the PCR or rapid for free.
  5. This thread has gone from children on board to multiple times dining at Prego and Umi Uma. What a transition. On 7/10 my butler was able to get me extra nights in both and at no extra charge.
  6. They weren’t sold out a few days ago. Based on my great experience on July 10, friends of mine were looking and there was lots of availability. Hope it has nothing to do with the two cases detected on the 7/17 cruise.
  7. No everyone does not wear athleisure wear now. I don’t, my family don’t and my friends don’t unless actually working out. My country club enforces their dress code and ath leisure is not allowed in the Dining room at any time. So glad you are looking forward to offending people.
  8. Social distancing or shall I say social seating was not enforced on the tenders I was on. People were sitting on the tape on the seats, not leaving them empty. I also saw guests not wearing their masks in the tenders. I was not aware that Crystal started guests wearing the bracelets. They were not on my cruise. Good idea. I wonder when these two guests actually became positive. Hopefully they did not have a lot of contact with others during that time.
  9. i looked for you everyday at paddle tennis and never found you. I was at the pool area after 4:30 pm and witnessed it one day and the next day security appeared. Thank goodness.
  10. The thing that I found a new low was a group of friends on the July 10 who thought it appropriate to have their own (waterproof) speakers at the pool and decided that blasting their music for all those nearby to hear was ok. Security finally had to intervene and they argued with security about being allowed to play their music. Never witnessed that on Crystal before. There were a lot of people ignoring the dress code on this cruise also.
  11. So sorry Gary. I have two sets of friends that live in BHM. Sadly, AL has the lowest % of the population vaccinated at only 35%. Couple that with what they tell me that unvaccinated people are going without masks (according to people they know) and yes, fully vaccinated people can get Covid from those who are not vaccinated. Having just got off myself on July 17 and having loved it I was looking forward to your opinions as a first timer on Crystal. Good luck and stay safe. You strike me as a true southern gentleman and I have enjoyed your posts.
  12. Thanks. Yes, I had reviewed that. Hopefully incidence rates don’t change. Germany is level 2 and the UK just went to level 4 according to the CDC so Germany seems to be handling things well. I watch the BBC and the video clips of the clubbers was madness.
  13. Thanks, I have a load of those that I don’t use any more. Update though, I just came back from The Bahamas and the most amazing, probably best Crystal cruise I have ever been on. It was all perfection. Got the old passport out and now have 2 more stamps in it. i am on a non stop flight from the US to FRA and have my covid vaccine card ready to present. looking forward to being in the beautiful Black Forest again.
  14. @notamermaid Germany is coded a danger level of 2 according to the CDC and is there for lower than many many other places in Europe and incidence rates lower than in many places in the US and UK. I will be there in less than two weeks. The area I am going to in BW has a very low incidence as of now, and everything is open. I have until the day of departure to cancel with a full refund of my airline points without penalty. I have a silly question from a local. I have read that the only masks accepted on trains, etc are the medical quality ones. I have cloth ones as well as th
