  1. I am also on the Island cruise October 5th. I had to cancel 5 cruises last year so I am hoping this one goes. I am fully vaccinated and don’t understand the restrictions allowing only UK residents. Also booked on Regal TA on November 3rd. Fingers crossed 🤞
  2. Yes I was given a card produced by CDC with my name, dates, vaccine type & batch #. When they fill in the info for my 2nd dose, I’ll laminate it and put it with my passport
  3. I got my 1st vaccine shot yesterday. The 2nd is scheduled for 2/20. I do hope that initially Princess require px and crew to be vaccinated. If someone does get Covid, everyone’s cruise is essentially ruined. Why have all that negative publicity when you can just make sure that everyone is vaccinated? I have 2 cruises booked for Oct ‘ ‘21 both leaving from Southampton. If they don’t go I will be disappointed but there is little I can do about it.
  4. Thanks Bob. I think we may be looking at mid 2021 if we’re lucky for cruising to resume.
  5. Reports from MSC pax have stated elevators and stairways are nightmares. Only 4 people per elevator with waits up to 1 hr. Stairways are just as bad as only 1 person allowed at a time with crew monitors on each landing. These cruises were reported as reduced capacity. Also MDR dinner; you had to order before you even entered, service was extremely rushed. No self serve at buffet only 2 pax per table who were traveling together. This pax reported waiting over 90 mins to get a table for breakfast at buffet.
  6. Doesn’t look like Princess or Carnival cruising will start anytime soon due to judge’s order for 60 day halt from US ports for continued environmental violations.
  7. Since no one else looks after our climate challenges or environmental challenges it’s left up to judges. Corporate knew about this for years and has continued to pollute the oceans. Without clean oceans the Florida economy will tank. I live in Florida very near the beach and know how dire the situation of our seas is.
  8. I agree. Covid cases will increase during winter months making it impossible to put people together in confined spaces especially a cruise ship.
  9. CDC extended no sail order for 30 days. Dr Redfield requested the ban remain in place until February but was overruled by Trump administration and Florida officials. So much for the safety of passengers and crew.
  10. I would bet that all the protocols will look the same so anyone would know one cruise lines should be as safe as the other
  11. Makes sense to sell those ships. Although 20 yrs ago I loved sailing on those ships, I much prefer the newer ships.
  12. Maybe a re-naming since like you said Ruby is associated with that huge debacle in Australia
  13. I wasn’t on the Crown but just booked this on the Regal. Thx for the heads up
  14. I guess it hasn’t opened up yet as no TA are currently offered for September at all. I would rather be on Regal anyway. Hope you find it. I’m still waiting for something East to Southampton in April 21. I heard that was going to be the Sky but nothing available yet.
