  1. Which cruise lines allow door decorations? I know NO TAPE. I have magnets. I am visually impaired. I get around using a white blind cane. Almost totally blind. Still see some shadows in one eye. The door decorations will help me find my cabin since seeing the cabin numbers is not easy. My next booking is on the MSC Divina. This will be my 65th birthday. I have a 12 inch by 18 inch cloth banner that says Happy 65th Birthday. I plan to put this ouside my door. It has siz heavy duty magnets attached to the back of the banner. I also plan to puy a 6 inch magnet on the door.
  2. Thank you. My next cruise I am booked on is MSC Divina

  4. I agree the cruise lines hold the biggest card when it comes to money in the USA, They pay port fees. Hire hundreds of locals. Buy many products from the port in the USA. Cut the CDC, at this time holds the ACE. Or the JOKER if you will. The cruise lines need one piece of paper from the CDC. The paper that allows them to take on passengars and to sail from the US ports. So yes the cruise lines hold the card for money and thousands of jobs. But the CDC can, at anytime, drag their feet and hold up the certification.
  5. CDC is part of the US Federal Government. They own the cruise lines at this time. The CDC holds all the cards. At least until the cruise lines get that paper they need to sail from the US ports. Some say the CDC is acting like a character in the movie The Godfather
  6. Mandated group shore excursions are even more a hardship for those that are fluffy" or are mobility impaired. Many cruise lines offer one or no group excursion for those in a wheelchair or are two "fluffy" to fit in those coach tour buses. And now, it looks like, those that are already booked are being told, NO MORE walking or rolling off a ship, unless you are able to find and pay the extra for a cruise ship group tour. NO MORE just walking off the ship and walk around the port. No more visiting the stores. Buying gifts and trinkets on the pier, unless you cough up a $100 or more per perso
  7. I wonder how shipboard photos may look like. Consider wearing a mask for much of the week on the Lido deck. Laying out on a deck chair. Soaking up the sun. Then posing for that memorable formal dinner night photo with the ships Captain. Maybe pics like this will be the new normal?
  8. On those medical records forms I have signed at my many doctors office. They are not a blank type form granting open permission just to anyone. HIPPA laws require that a name, and address of who I allow to see ANY of my records. The name of a physican and the reasons the records can be legally requested. Unless the US Government, under the Obamacare thousands of regulations, has changed or added a law allowing open medical records. Then the HIPPA laws, currently in the books, does not allow jusy anyone to access my personal medical records. And that includes when and where I took ny many
  9. I can remember when obanacare mandated all medical records be made electronic. There was widespred concerns about privacy. Unauthorised access. Hacked private medical records. I remember when Obamacare made that a law. My wife and I were going to our PCP almost every month or more. He and his office was very busy all medical records to some government database.
  10. How many years and how many billions of dollars have been spent to create a database for Obamacare. 10 years later and it still does not work. I live in Florida. I have seen the "heck" that those who had to file for unemployment. They could not even get on the database for months and months. Oce they got on, many found themselves being forced to reboot and try again and again. US Government database in one hour time. Remember we are talking about the US Government. They can't even get stimuls checks sent out one month after they were promised to be sent out. My last comment is not poli
  11. A question on ptoof My doctors. Even my PCP cannot get my shot records unless I sign a medical privacy release. I saw my PCP recently. I had to sign a release to get documentation on when I had my shots for shingles, pneumonia, tetnus. Even for my last flu shor. My question is. Those who had the covid shot already. What kind of medical release, if any, did you sign when you got your shot? So if my PCP needs me to sign a medical release form so she can send it out to find out when I got my last flu shot. Which by the way it was Oct 2020. What do we have to sign so cru
  12. A question on proof My doctors. Even my PCP cannot get my shot records unless I sign a medical privacy release. I saw my PCP recently. I had to sign a release to get documentation on when I had my shots for shingles, pneumonia, tetnus. Even for my last flu shor. My question is. Those who had the covid shot already. What kind of medical release, if any, did you sign when you got your shot?
  13. Your comments are sincere. On the news I have heard many discussions that proof of covid must be within 90 days before sailing. Also a shot given 12 months or more before a sailing may not be accepted. Also something might be required about a negative test taken 72 hours or max of 3 days before sailing. Not including any test the cruise line might give at the embarkation day. By the way, testing IS NOT FREE. I have ten tests so far. YES TEN. I am trying to get testing and treatment at the hospital. My doctor tested me again about 11 days ago. Test results were NEG. So hospital said N
  14. As the OP, my question was pertaing to how much extra money, I as a cruiser from the USA. Might be required to shell out to have some Internationally approved proof of a shot or shots. And like a passport from the US that is only good for a limited time and must renewed. Would the proof of shot be needed to be renewed a few years down the road, And how much more money might be charged by some governmewnt for that reneweal. And what bout a mandated booster shot. Like a yearly flu shot is offered. I did a search on CC and could not find any discussion on these questions. Maybe there are thre
  15. There has been talk about proof of a covid shot. Discussion have been show a piece of paper. Have a yellow or some other card. Require a Passport Vaccaine Card or Booklet. Put all the medical shot information, from every country on some Internayional server or database. So many ideas. About another question. How much extra will those on a cruise ship have to shell out to obtain an acceptable form of proof? Which government will get the money? And which government will host all this medical data for those who seek to cruise? So how more might a cruiser have to shell out. $5, $50, $
