  1. I totally agree . The data coming in now from the German cruise lines and PG is really ominous for the industry. In Tahiti I’m sure further restrictions like in Europe will now happen. I see little hope any Summer 2021 cruises leaving the US or taking on US citizens. In Tahiti their now all in quarantine with only 1/2 of their trip done. This is what I feared.
  2. Yes, absolutely. And those who do not want to get it should be restricted from any public place. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  3. Thanks , I may book. Haven’t been in Windstar for a couple of years how much deposit $ do they want these days??
  4. I was almost ready to book the Windstar Tahiti 11 day on 7/21/2021 but held off as I doubt it will go. I am ready to cancel my 1/30/21 Celebrity sailing from San Juan - no way that one is going. Now I am more confident on my 2/23/22 sailing...... I think! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  5. No way to prevent, it’s all foolish to start. 8 hour flight and $10.K down the drain. My first cruise is now 2/23/22. Yep, 2022. It will take that long to approve a vaccine and most importantly distribute and inoculate. Most of 2021 is toast. Maybe fall 2021. Not winter or summer. I was contemplating a July 2021 Windstar Tahiti Cruise. Holding off now. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  6. No shuttle from airport. Uber/Lyft or taxi. Has shuttles to all the ships. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  7. Based on the news today on the German cruise to Norway exploding with covid 19 despite all the protocols cruising is finished without a vaccine. Looks like they in for big trouble. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  8. I have been there three times and feel you couldn’t be more wrong. On TripAdvisor it’s consistently rated the top hotel on the French side. It’s got great rooms overlooking Grand Case with some of the best restaurants in the Caribbean a 10 minute walk down the hill along with a nice beach right next to the Grand Case Beach Club just s short walk. It’s got a wonderful pool there. It’s rates are in the $300’s , not expensive in my book for the Caribbean at a nice place. It’s a short ride to many other beaches and Pinel Island. Everyone rents a car and they have free parking. Now we do not cook our own meals , we on vacation not at home and trying to save a few bucks. Why miss the gourmet food at Grand Case to schlemp our own Meals? The Dutch side- over crowded with tourist and cruise people. Ugh!l
  9. Based on all the protocols they did and traveler selection I can’t see the US CDC allowing cruises now until mid to late 2021. The winter and probably more is toast. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  10. Agree- almost certainly shows without a vaccine no protocols really work and cruising is not advisable. Well, time for me to cancel my 1/30/21 cruise now that I can see the future. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  11. Land only- St Lucia, Grenada at one of Sandals resorts and the French side of St Martin at the Esplanade hotel (been there ). Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  12. I guess what I was trying to say that I would think prices would be heavily discounted to lure customers who are all very Leary of cruising right now instead of jacking up prices to the point we all know it is a rip off. I get “ sale” emails every day from Celebrity and I know now they are all total garbage. All it does is make me want to switch to another line when I cruise again and I’m elite status, a so called loyal cruiser. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  13. I’m booked in a sky suite on the 1/30/21 Summit out of San Juan. I booked it on board another ship in February 2019. Due to the virus I was looking to rebook in December 2021. The lift and shift is only for one year or more later so that does not apply. I’m already booked on the 10day Millenium on 2/22/2022. I checked on the same Summit I’m booked on now for December and my Sky suite is now almost $2,000 more than I paid with the promotional discounts applied. What gives????

  14. Any attempt to cruise before a vaccine is doomed to failure and isolations at sea. Real fun. Any groups getting together now causes spikes / see today in Spain and here in Hampton Roads in Virginia in the last three weeks after going to phase 3. No plan works that allows any reasonable amount of interaction and normalcy. It a losing game no politician will accept so its an endless open ,close , open routine. Pitiful that so many cannot accept the reality of a very susceptible virus that will never be eradicated. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  15. I heard somewhere that CDC believes no possibility of cruising until at least April 1. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
