  1. Florida has now filed a lawsuit against CDC. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/24742-florida-files-lawsuit-against-cdc-to-restart-cruise-industry-in-united-states.html
  2. Seabourn has now announced cruises from Greece starting in July (one ship). Time for Regent to get moving.
  3. Here is more information and the letter. Vaccinations required for all. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/24706-norwegian-cruise-line-holdings-submits-plan-to-cdc-asks-for-july-4-restart.html
  4. And the CDC now also says it is ok for fully vaccinated people to travel domestically. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/travel-during-covid19.html
  5. Looks like NCLH will at least require crew to be vaccinated. https://crew-center.com/nclh-releases-list-accepted-vaccine-brands-crew-and-vaccination-updates
  6. Looks like there may be some movement. https://www.miamidade.gov/releases/2021-04-01-mayor-statement-cruising.asp
  7. For anyone interested, the CLIA has put together a letter that can be sent to Congressional representatives. https://cruising.org/en/clia-action-center?utm_source=MagnetMail&utm_medium=email&utm_term=patrick.ledbetter@oaklandtravel.agency&utm_content=2021 IAM%2FTAM - TAKE ACTION&utm_campaign=TAKE ACTION%3A Tell Congress to Help Restart the Cruise Industry!
  8. A few of the answers I have gleaned from the various cruise lines starting up: Vaccinations will be required for crew. There will be capacity constraints as they appear to be only selling balcony cabins and up. There will probably still be mask requirements initially (out of an abundance of caution), but hopefully those can be dropped after a while. I have heard about the Crystal sailings in the Bahamas that passengers will be allowed to go ashore independently while of course following all Bahamian rules re: masks, etc.
  9. Celebrity and RCL have now announced Mediterranean sailings starting in June/July (Greece and Cyprus).
  10. It looks like at least NCL is getting ready. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/24628-norwegian-frees-up-two-more-cruise-ships-for-redeployment.html
  11. I wish people would read up on statistics before posting. 95% effective does not mean that 5% will get Covid, it means vaccinated people get infected 95% less than non-vaccinated people. Based on US numbers, the chance of an unvaccinated person getting infected is about 8.9%, let’s say 10% for simplicity sake. That means a vaccinated person only has a 0.5% chance of getting infected, i.e. 1.5 people out of 3,000, not 150! That is infected at all, not hospitalized or dying.
  12. Just got an email from Regent that 2022 Caribbean itineraries on Navigator will start/end in Bridgetown, Barbados, starting with the January sailing from Cartagena. Looks like Regent decided not to wait for the CDC.
  13. Yes, have received credit for unused air for diy B2Bs every time we have done it. Applied automatically at booking.
  14. Business class air if offered for all suites (or you can take a credit and book your own). If you do come in early or leave later, you would have to pay for a deviation which is $175 per person. That would also give you the chance to ask for your preferred airline and itinerary. Alcohol is included (except premium brands), and you can drink all the water you want. We have been on both Regent and Seabourn, and overall prefer Regent. Service is comparable on both lines, but IMO Regent has much better selection and variety of food, especially in Compass Rose (main dining room).
