  1. The question asked wasn't Princess specific nor did you indicate you only meant Princess. However, if one cruise line is allowing B2B cruises, I'm sure others will as well. Edit to add: To further answer Daniel's question, there are no Panama cruises available prior to Nov. 1st. However, in a normal year, I think Princess offered Panama cruises only in Feb./March and Nov./Dec. Their first 15-day cruise is Nov. 7th this year going to Hawaii.
  2. The answer is "yes". Someone posted that they're doing a B2B on Edge the end of this month: LINK However, the answer is "no" for any cruises 14 days or longer in 2021.
  3. Again, I believe so. I seem to recall reading it on the Celebrity part of the forum. Not 100% sure though.
  4. I believe so. I know people have them booked. My next cruise in Feb. is a 15 day cruise.
  5. I agree to a point. I feel the CDC overreached its authority where the cruise lines were concerned. YES, for the health of the public cruises needed to stop. However, the restart has been severely hindered by the CDC's inability to get out of its own way and probably took about 6 months longer than it needed. They went nuclear option when something with more finesse was required. And, as it's been proven so far, cruises can happen safely without the CDC telling the lines what to do or how to do it. Be that as it may, ships are sailing again regardless. Time to move on and enj
  6. If you're looking for a unique place to eat, I recommend Biscuit ***** of 1st Ave. They're strictly carryout and they're only open until 1:00 though. EDIT: Funny... I can't put in the real name of a restaurant because of CC's filters.
  7. Exactly this. I was "forced" to change unfortunately.
  8. IMO, how they should do it by wrist bands. Vaccinated wear, say, a blue wrist band, while non-vaccinated wear a bright yellow one. Something that really stands out.
  9. Based on the new CC Covid discussion policy, this thread may not last all that longer. So I'd like to once again thank Ken for starting this thread and to all of those medical professionals who provided invaluable information. In this world of massive disinformation, it was great to see and actually understand what was going on. We may not quite be at the end of this particular tunnel, but that light is extremely bright right now!
  10. If they want you tested, you'll be tested. If you refuse, you won't cruise. It's that simple. Vaccinated, unvaccinated, doesn't matter.
  11. It's just under 10 miles from the port to the airport. Considering how crowded it will be, I'd expect the trip to take anywhere between 30-40 to the airport. As long as you're first off the ship, I don't see there being a huge issue. Assuming zero problems in docking and going through customs.
  12. The absolute latest I've ever flown in for a cruise is 18 hours before it sailed. Arrived 10:00 PM the night before a 4:00 PM sailing the next day. And even then I was sort of sweating a bit as the flight I was on arrived 2 hours later than scheduled!
  13. They'll need to don hazmat suits to keep others safe.
  14. Most hotels will hold on to your luggage if you need to kill an hour or two or three. Not a big deal. Besides, you'll know what time your arrival time is long before you get there, so just request a late check out. Unless the hotel is 100% packed the day you're leaving, they'll probably extend it for up to 2 hours. I've never any issues with either luggage being held or late check out.
