  1. Count me out. I will not be bubbled. I’ll choose a different option.
  2. I appreciate that it is difficult for cruise lines to balance safety with their desire to restart cruising. I am good with either the vaccine requirement or PCR test, but not both. I have already done the PCR test coming and going a couple of times. I have decided not to do it again. It sounds reasonable on the surface, but the reality is a lot more complicated, stressful and expensive. Requiring a PCR test within a 3 day window is just not practical in a lot of locations. I was told 3-5 business days to receive my results. Otherwise I could make a 2 hr round trip drive and pay $400 to
  3. Sailing in July on Crystal Serenity to the Bahamas.
  4. I was on the Expedition 2 years ago August. Had no problem, but I would imagine that it might vary depending on time of year, weather conditions.
  5. I know that Crystal will do Covid tests at embarkation. But does anyone know if they will provide Covid tests for return to the US ? Or will we have to arrange our own ?
  6. I am cruising on the Serenity July 3. Has anyone successfully obtained a health visa for the Bahamas ? I successfully entered personal info, answered some health questions and uploaded my passport after struggling with the website crashing a couple of times. There is nowhere on the web form to upload the vaccine card or a PCR test for that matter. There is no where to enter your travel dates either. Seems odd. Here is the website that I used: https://travel.gov.bs/.
  7. Just booked ! July 3 Bahamas on the Crystal Serenity. First time on Crystal. Can’t wait.
  8. It sounds like Azamara will include shore excursions in their price. Not happy with this option especially in the Caribbean. Also hope they hold off on Oprah. Not a big fan. I wish them the best. I will watch what happens here before committing to a booking.
  9. I am sorry to see Silver Seas going in this direction. My husband and I scuba dive when traveling in the Caribbean. I prefer booking my own excursions. We have never been ones to appreciate bus tours. We would have to pay for the “included” excursions and then pay to book our own preferred activities. My other concern is that this will also push out the small operators that work in some of these countries or cut their profits. We will have to look elsewhere. 😪
