  1. Golf attire is always welcome at out table. Dine with us anytime.
  2. The Case 8:21-cv-00839-SDM-AAS, STATE OF FLORIDA vs. XAVIER BECERRA, Secretary of Health and Human Services, in his official capacity; HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES; ROCHELLE WALENSKY, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in her official capacity; CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION; The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is a "COMPLAINT FOR DECLARATORY AND PRELIMINARY AND PERMANENT INJUNCTIVE RELIEF". The complaint has nothing to do with Florida's law dealing with outlawing proof of vaccination. The complaint asks for the following: a) Hold unlawful and set aside the Conditional Sailing Order. b) Issue preliminary and permanent injunctive relief enjoining Defendants from enforcing the Conditional Sailing Order. c) Postpone the effective date of the Conditional Sailing Order. d) Declare unlawful the Conditional Sailing Order. e) Declare that the cruise industry may open with reasonable safety protocols. f) Award Florida costs and reasonable attorney’s fees. g) Award such other relief as the Court deems equitable and just. The ruling is a preliminary injunction pending trial on the issues set forth in the complaint. Neither the preliminary injunction nor the trial on the complaint, as far as I can see, will deal with proof of vaccination.
  3. Perhaps they are all still trying to read through the entire ruling. Worth reading the whole thing if for nothing other than finding the Thomas Jefferson quote. The ruling is very informative. However, if you want just skip forward to about page 122 and just read the ruling. If you were worried about what happens when you are dumped off the ship in some foreign port when you test positive you should be even more concerned. http://myfloridalegal.com/webfiles.nsf/WF/SSWN-C44RE6/$file/Order+on+PI.pdf I’m willing to take my chances and sail knowing that I had better have a credit card with sufficient limits to cover an extended stay.
  4. Can only speak to Splendor. They are metal. There is a YouTube video of the suite.
  5. "Oh, that's very different, Never mind!", Emily Litella.
  6. I, for one, will refuse to cruise with "drunk, amputee monkeys" at the helm.
  7. Let me point out that I don't work for Regent. I am not accepting any free cruises for this advice, however, if they offer I'll take it. (Cruise anywhere on any Regent ship for any length of time). I believe that it was an attempt at extension which was just too late. From the Title: “THIRD MODIFICATION AND EXTENSION OF NO SAIL ORDER AND OTHER MEASURES RELATED TO OPERATIONS” From Applicability: “This Modification and Extension of No Sail Order and Other Measures Related to Operations “ From: Findings and Immediate Action “Accordingly, the following terms and conditions of the No Sail Order and Other Measures Related to Operations signed on March 14, 2020, as modified and extended by this ORDER, SHALL REMAIN IN EFFECT. Consequently, it remains ORDERED:” (at page 23) “Accordingly, the terms and conditions of the Second Modification and Extension of No Sail Order and Other Measures Related to Operations, signed on July 16, 2020, as modified and extended by this ORDER, SHALL REMAIN IN EFFECT. “ It is an attempt to extend which is ineffective. However, I am sure that CDC has people monitoring this board for just such information so that they can correct their errors. I have only had two cruises canceled so far. (not even going to count the land vacations canceled) That is probably why I am writing this instead of going through a few thousand photos from our last two cruises and deleting the really really bad ones. If they don't let me sail this will be the first time in many years that we have not had at least one cruise during the year.
  8. "has hereunto set his hand at Washington, D.C., this 30th day of September 2020." I think he missed the deadline.
  9. “Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit but the highest form of intelligence,” attributed to Oscar Wilde. It was your intelligence that is apparent in your post and shadows any subtle sarcasm . Marc, you may want to get those tickets. From: U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES (HHS) CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION (CDC); ORDER UNDER SECTIONS 361 & 365 OF THE PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICE ACT (42 U.S.C. 264, 268) AND 42 CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS PART 70 (INTERSTATE) AND PART 71 (FOREIGN): SECOND MODIFICATION AND EXTENSION OF NO SAIL ORDER AND OTHER MEASURES RELATED TO OPERATIONS “This Order is effective upon signature and shall remain in effect until the earliest of (1) [DID NOT HAPPEN]; (2) [DID NOT HAPPEN]; or (3) September 30, 2020.” (At page 19) Since (1) and (2) did not happen earlier, by its terms at 00:01 September 30th the order expired. The Order has expired. Expiration prior to extension precludes extension. Nothing stopping the cruise industry from sailing from US ports except their own agreement to cancel through October. My bags are packed for my December 21st sail date.
