  1. Yes we reserved the floating cabana w/full day pass in Jan 2022 for $1699. Full day pass is $107 so for 8 ppl that's $856 of the cabana price alone. Its very high, I guess they are trying to recoup their losses. Perhaps the prices will drop closer to our trip if no one is booking them. I've also noticed that the price of the Villa Suites on Oasis class ships has doubled. We used to find this suite for $14-$16K for (4) ppl. Now it's $28K+ I sure hope prices come down because I haven't booked any new cruises at these prices.
  2. It all depends on how quickly the variants take hold. If the variants become the primary strain in the US then perhaps it will delay our return to a "new normal". Pfizer CEO says Covid is here to stay and will turn into a common cold-like illness. I don't see us reaching vaccine herd immunity until Q4. I can foresee mask mandates well into 2022 on land and until 2024 on ships. People come from around the globe to board these ships, until Covid is controlled around the globe, preventative measures will be required. I think it would be best to limit passengers to the country of embarkation only
  3. Merck's out as their vaccine wasn't better than natural immunity https://www.businessinsider.com/merck-covid-vaccines-drop-out-disappointing-trial-results-2021-1
  4. Operation Dope Speed. What a joke. This is just like no PPE back in March or failed Testing still today. Looks like vaccinating this country will take well into 2022.
  5. Don't you guys have walk in clinics running 24/7 in empty retail spaces?
  6. Doesn't make sense that they wouldn't pre-schedule your 2nd dose. That sucks and I'm sorry for those who are having to stress through the process. I sure hope you are all able to get that 2nd dose @ 21 or 28 days as directed by the mfg.
  7. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/facts.html Can a COVID-19 vaccine make me sick with COVID-19? No. None of the authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines or COVID-19 vaccines currently in development in the United States contain the live virus that causes COVID-19. This means that a COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19. There are several different types of vaccines in development. All of them teach our immune systems how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19. Sometimes this process can cause symptoms, such as fever. These
  8. There have been a few stories getting attention lately of people getting sick with covid after vaccination. It's unfortunate that people attribute this to the vaccine when it's been debunked by every vaccine expert. The ingredients are listed on both Pfizer and Moderna websites. https://www.pfizer.com/news/hot-topics/the_facts_about_pfizer_and_biontech_s_covid_19_vaccine https://www.modernatx.com/covid19vaccine-eua/providers/about-vaccine?gclid=CjwKCAiAr6-ABhAfEiwADO4sfT8-3WBqiVedTaLXbeFbd6DbWQhNmu4IPwLI2llLO5pMg758pP5luRoCDs8QAvD_BwE
  9. There is no live virus in the vaccine. It is impossible to "catch" covid from the vaccine. You only have 50% immunity 2 weeks after the first dose and 95% immunity 3 weeks after your 2nd dose. During that entire time you can catch covid. Also it can take up to 14 days for a person to develop symptoms from covid. So unfortunately your friend caught covid before being vaccinated.
  10. 25 of us got our first dose of Pfizer Tuesday administered by CVS. No side effects in anyone other than a sore upper arm (injection site) for a day or two. Age ranges from 25-96. The needle is so thin you can barely feel the shot. I have also heard of a covid infected person getting sick after their first vaccine dose. This person didn't know that they previously had covid. I personally know 2 people getting the vaccine next week that are just past their 90 day recovery period. The 26 yr old with no underlying conditions spent 9 days in hospital. The 51 yr old lost taste & smel
  11. My enthusiasm for cruising is higher but my concern for covid protocols is up there too. Our next cruise is May and we expect to be vaccinated in Jan so hopefully that cruise will sail. If we do go and do not enjoy ourselves due to restrictions or a total lack of "normalcy" then it may be some time before we cruise again.
  12. From my understanding you are 94.5% protected from contracting the virus. You have a 5.5% chance of contracting the virus but being asymptomatic. You'll have 100% protection from becoming severely ill. Unfortunately they still cannot tell us how long the vaccine immunity will last and if we can still become carriers and unwittingly spread the virus.
  13. Lorraine in Boston asks, “If I get the vaccine and get COVID but am not sick, can I still spread the virus?” If you get vaccinated, it’s not clear if you can still get infected, not develop symptoms, and possibly pass the virus on to others. That’s why even if you get vaccinated, you still need to wear a mask and maintain social distancing.
  14. Some good questions answered here: https://boston.cbslocal.com/2020/12/10/coronavirus-covid-19-vaccine-questions-dr-mallika-marshall/
  15. FDA issues emergency use authorization for the Pfizer vaccine! yaaaaas! Here's my arm, shoot me up!
