  1. We are in Clay County, just south of Jacksonville ( Duval County).
  2. I also live in Florida I have an appointment for 7 January and my spouse for 8 January.

  4. What is truly amazing to me is that the some of the very same people who intended to take a Regent cruise after the US State Department and CDC issued advisories against taking any cruises ( coincidentally, Regent pulled the plug right before the government mandated an end to cruises in US waters) are now claiming they’ll be the first aboard when cruises resume. These are also the people who have consistently railed against the CDC, but I guess now CDC is trustworthy. I’m a long way from cruises. Like Wendy, we are glad we were able to travel as extensively as we did. We may stick to domestic travel in the foreseeable future, but for now we’re sticking close to home. BTW, I’ve been on multiple Regent cruises; I’m not a newbie.

  7. I have no idea whether I got it or not. I never read anything Regents sends. If by mail, it is unopened and tossed to recycle and emails are deleted without opening. I wish all the cruise companies would take me off their lists.

  9. Suspect that all the controversial topics have one person in common. I haven’t followed CC closely until recently but there certainly seems to be a pattern.
  10. My refund for cruise cancelled April 1 credited to my AMEX today. This was for Singapore to Dubai cruise in March 2021. Will not take another cruise until vaccine widely available. Certainly not the end of the world for us.
  11. I did read what was posted but the email did not say these transactions had been completed. ( “ Contingent on the completion of these transactions...”).

  14. Unlikely, according to my husband who has a LLM in Labor Law. He uses the airlines pilots unsuccessful age discrimination suit against the airline industry as an example. He agrees the ADA is not limited to employment, but that the cruise industry could very likely prove a compelling reason to require special limits by age.
  15. Health care workers, first responders, those in essential jobs, all residents in Nursing Homes an Assisted Living Facilities will likely receive the vaccine first. That’s a lot of people.Those are the most vulnerable population. Everybody else can self quarantine. Wanting to go on a cruise is not going to move people up the list.
  16. Very interesting discussion about what the new 100 day ban means for the cruise industry. Hard to believe all this will be accomplished by Aug.
  17. You have repeatedly and consistently misrepresented the recommendations on wearing masks. The CDC and WHO have never believed that masks ( except N95 masks) prevent the wearer from acquiring a respiratory spread disease. They have always advocated that those who wear surgical masks protect those that don’t wear the mask. The current recommendation is based on the fact that 20-50% of the population may be asymptomatic carriers. Thus the recommendation.
  18. “we have extended our voluntary temporary suspension of voyages embarking through May 14, 2020. We plan to recommence operations beginningMay 15, 2020. “ This is no longer voluntary.
  19. I just cancelled my March 2021 cruise Singapore to Dubai. We will eat the $3400 insurance policy. There is zero chance that we will take another cruise until a vaccine is widely available. And since we will be way down on the priority ( health care workers, very vulnerable— i.e. assisted living, nursing home residents, chronically ill people, etc—), I don’t think that will be anytime soon.
  20. The government required both Holland America an Princess to provide both chartered air and private transport home to all passengers on the most recent ships docked in Miami. These conditions ( set by CDC)were agreed upon prior to docking. The Coast Guard refused to medivac very ill patients and required ships to clear all emergency evacuations prior to contracting private agencies. Maybe the cruise lines will bill individuals but since these were the conditions set to allow docking, I doubt they can collect. The passengers had no input into these decisions. I think all the old rules may go to the wayside. There is simply no way to predict what will happen. But one thing is for sure. It won’t be as it was. The virus will not go away and the vaccine is at least 12-18 months away. The head of Infectious Disease at NIH (Tony Fauci) has said once it comes on line it will have limited availability and will initially go tho health care workers, then very high risk personnel. For most of us were looking availability at maybe 24 months.
  21. “What Will It Take to Get Cruises Sailing Again?” https://www.travelandleisure.com/cruises/cruises-after-coronavirus
  22. “Carnival, the largest of the three, is the most likely to survive, generating nearly double the trailing revenue as Royal Caribbean. One also can't write off Royal Caribbean, as the player with the strong margins. Norwegian seems to be the odd man out here, but it's more likely to be acquired -- at a pittance, but acquired nonetheless -- unless the market is so bad in a year or two that an oversupply of ships exists for what could be dicey demand. “ Read full article here: https://www.fool.com/investing/2020/04/05/will-carnival-royal-caribbean-and-norwegian-cruise.aspx
