  1. This highlights the ridiculousness of it all.
  2. ...and we wonder why [fill in the blank].... The blame does not go to the cruise lines. It goes to the government for their solid and consistent messaging and policy based on science. /s
  3. On this trip we did essentially everything you would get on a cruise tour, saved about $500 PP on what we can compare, and were not tied to any schedules. Having said that for those who are comfortable in groups and tours I'm sure it is first rate. Do not skimp on the train - go top shelf here.
  4. I may be wrong but the Explorer is essentially an all-inclusive land tour - transportation, meals, activities, excursions, etc. The On-Your Own has the lodging and transportation but the rest is up to you. We did a DIY cruise tour 3 years ago and it was awesome! Four of us probably saved a few thousand dollars doing it that way.
  5. After the general uncertainty after a trip to Cabo, our family has thrown in the towel for international travel through 2022. As many have mentioned there is just too much uncertainty regarding protocols, regulations, changes. I am optimistic that as time goes on, more are vaccinated/recovered, and more data comes in, sanity and reasonableness will prevail and this whole mess is behind us. Too many places to see still.
  6. This is a fun itinerary we have done a couple of times. Good luck for a successful and drama free cruise.
  7. "I need more than 15 drinks a day to be happy". SMH
  8. The last 18 months has been a beatdown and a buzz killer.
  9. Well, there was hope... Demand for photos will skyrocket once the masks are dropped.
  10. We just came back from a land vacation in MX. After getting tested - like buying a lotto ticket - the mind runs amok. No mas, gracias.
  11. The people scared of the politicians, the people scared of covid, and their accoutrement of lawyers.
  12. As it should be with minimal government interference. Provide all of the data and then we can discuss. - The Forgotten 20
  13. Because they're rare. See my earlier post on page 13. - The Forgotten 20
  14. [Sigh] "We conclude that memory antibodies selected over time by natural infection have greater potency and breadth than antibodies elicited by vaccination." https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.07.29.454333v1
  15. Hmmmm. Im just a little more blunt in my own parlance - well said. [My arm is hurting though from patting myself on the back yet again for being right on this topic too.]
  16. The lawsuit by Florida was clever as I had said before. It was the laxative needed to get s....stuff moving. Not only did it work, it got what FL wanted all along which was tourism and the cruise industry back in business, with the added (intended?) benefit of sticking it up the CDCs smoketstack. Many of you dont give RDS credit for this. Very few saw it coming out this way. [Pats self on back yet again.]👏👏👏🕺😉
  17. To quote another, the government doesn't like to lose.
  18. Not irrelevant to those principled people who believe the CDC and the government stepped in it.
