  1. Very good points - I agree. I guess I was making the point as you said, nothing is 100%. As I said in another post, this is to pacify the CDC so they can sail again. I did lose my original train of thought.......which I didn't come out saying, "Herd Immunity". What I observe with the frantic media is the "Today, we have 1,000 more COVID Positives". Are they symptomatic or asymptomatic? Those numbers make a big difference. Are we heading towards Herd Immunity? People keep freaking out over the media reports but the media is not specific. "Joe S, 85 who has a critical
  2. No, I do not think they remain asymptomatic forever. In fact we are dealing with one strain but there may be several out there. EVENTUALLY, this virus and the major strain - the killer - will die out as people contract the virus and survive or die. I should have been more detailed. What I am asking is that testing folks for COVID is not 100% for the safety of crew and passengers. If you are asymptomatic, you are not sick BUT you 1.) are a carrier, which could get a high risk person sick; or 2.) be in the incubation (10 days after contracting virus) and end up positive while on
  3. Is there a Professional Doctor on this thread that can answer my question about this article? Question: As the virus continues and spreads, won't the majority test "A-Symptomatic"? If you are A-Symptomatic, you are not physically sick, but can spread it to others that are high risk that can get sick. If this is true, then when boarding 200 passengers, and if 80% of them test "A-Symptomatic", then they will not be allowed to board? Eventually, there will be more A-Symptomatic than COVID Positive with physical symptoms. How will this work? Won't cruise lines be
  4. I cannot do Lift and Shift at this time..... I have to work with Casino Royal. I won the cruise playing Bingo. "All my options are based if RCL cancels. Because this is a "Certificate won Cruise" there will be many stipulations....."
  5. All my options are based if RCL cancels. Because this is a "Certificate won Cruise" there will be many stipulations.....
  6. (I won this cruise playing Bingo. This is a "Certificate Cruise". I added an upgrade) I've been checking on Coco Cay. The ships are just stranded in the surrounding area......waiting Bahamas hasn't lifted any restrictions...... Talked to Royal Caribbean several times about my options........ not looking great and my Final Payment is due September 24 for December 7 sailing........ Waiting.....either for the cancellation or the Sailing Green Light!
  7. and you have been tested? You are not a carrier? Just because you are not ill doesn't mean you will not give it to someone else. The years that you did not get a flu shot, did you wear a mask? I don't think so since it was not the norm. You can be a carrier of the flu with no symptoms and give the flu to someone. Do you cough and sneeze using the inside of your elbow? I am of someone in the transplant world. I have been educated by the top doctors of Johns Hopkins and Duke. I encourage you in the future to please get a flue shot. This is a deadly game that you are not aware of
  8. Thank you for not getting your flu shot and contributing to the spread of the flu. Little do you know but you encounter persons everyday with compromised immune systems from chemo treatments, transplant patients and the elderly. I won't say the obvious, but please reconsider the "me mode" and be respectful.

  10. If it is being fastracked which I wouldn't be surprised, I am waiting to cruise if a vaccine is required.

  12. A Teaching Moment: (from CDC) The Immune System—The Body’s Defense Against Infection To understand how vaccines work, it helps to first look at how the body fights illness. When germs, such as bacteria or viruses, invade the body, they attack and multiply. This invasion, called an infection, is what causes illness. The immune system uses several tools to fight infection. Blood contains red blood cells, for carrying oxygen to tissues and organs, and white or immune cells, for fighting infection. Here is the link to read in it's entirety: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/c
  13. I'm just chiming in......I don't think the cruise industry is dead but it will never be the way we remember it. Many changes (good/bad) will occur. Unfortunately, if the CDC can still have it's hand in it, it may be many, many months before we are cruising again.
  14. Maybe in the future balconies will become larger! Yippee!
