  1. The vaccines are really effective at keeping people from suffering the most severe consequences of covid, but infections are still a possibility. And while the data are showing that vaccinated individuals are less likely to spread covid, it could still happen. So in theory, the only way to keep serious covid-19 cases from spreading would be to have everyone vaccinated. Otherwise, a vaccinated person could potentially infect an unvaccinated person...

  3. I have embarkation out of Miami on Saturday - hope nine doesn't cause us trouble!
  4. Totally understand!! 🙂 We appreciate you being so willing to share!
  5. Hey @AlohaLivin! Since so many people are requesting your map, is it possible to make a public version and share a link?

  10. @Racer70 Thank you for the links! I feel like that map will be super helpful!
  11. Hubby and I will be on the Carnival Conquest in a few weeks, and we're largely eschewing traditional shore excursions in favor of more DIY options. We'll be in in San Juan on Sept. 17th, and we want to do our own walking tour of Old San Juan and maybe the forts if time allows. Does anyone have recommendation for guide books/literature on the area to help us map out our walking tour? There was one kindle book I found on Amazon that might be good (The Old San Juan Walking Tour), but reviews were pretty mixed. Other words of wisdom on San Juan for those who have been the
  12. Glad I read this! The type of straws they have wasn't even on my radar. I'll be sure to throw a couple of my stainless straws into my suitcase for my cruise in sept. 🙂
  13. 17 days until I leave for Miami, 18 days until I am on the boat! 🙂
