  1. Unless it’s changed since last month, this ruling is still in place: https://www.pbs.org/newshour/economy/judge-blocks-florida-law-that-prevents-cruise-lines-from-requiring-proof-of-vaccination
  2. We are booked on Whisper out of FLL immediately after the Thanksgiving cruise (12/02, FLL-FLL, 15 day) and haven’t heard anything regarding a change. As it stands now, Florida’s ban on vax mandates for cruise lines was halted by a judge. I suspect that since Disney Cruise Lines is now requiring vaccines to board, Florida will not push back (Disney has enormous power there.)
  3. No quarantine https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-57999362
  4. Just a heads up https://news.trust.org/item/20210726214632-kdrqe/
  5. Good for you, Lois! I hope you have a wonderful time. I know we would be content with an entire week of nothing but sailing around the inside passage.
  6. May I suggest you watch this series to get a better idea of what this cruise entails (parts 1-4)?
  7. That’s good news. Being a general skeptic regarding these things, the whole world is watching this so I’m going to assume much of this is as much PR as genuine protocol. That said, I’m pleased to see the ideal reaction to the circumstance has been instituted.
  8. My concern is less that we get sick (we are fully dosed) but rather that someone unvaxed gets ill, forcing us into quarantine, limiting ports, cutting short the cruise, and all the other attendant complications.
  9. RCCL caved. Part of the reason we chose Silversea was the vax requirement https://www.miamiherald.com/news/business/tourism-cruises/article251909713.html
  10. Congratulations. Sounds delightful. On our list as well 🙂
  11. vaxed = no mask needed https://www.cnn.com/2021/05/13/health/cdc-mask-guidance-vaccinated/index.html
  12. True, they are, but the reaction post-vax, particularly to the second dose, is an indication of a strong immune response. per UC Davis: ”It is normal to have a stronger reaction after the second dose because that's when your immune system really kicks into gear. That big immune response is what causes the stronger reaction. It's called a boosting phenomenon, and it builds an even greater ability to defeat COVID-19. Here's how it works: When you get the first dose, your body learns to make antibodies to fight COVID-19. Then you get the second vaccine, and you already have the antibodies ready to go, so that shot kicks them into action. That more robust immune response accounts for the stronger reactions. Those reactions tell you the vaccine is working. Although stronger reactions after the second dose are common, experts say some people may have little or no reaction.” https://health.ucdavis.edu/coronavirus/covid-19-vaccine/how-covid-19-vaccines-work.html
  13. They are, but there are any number of countries where proof of vaccinations are required in order to enter. Adding one more vax to the list doesn’t feel particularly egregious to me.
