  1. By the way my understanding is if you had a positive test while on one of the Bermuda Cruises, the Bermuda Govt ordered you into a 14 day Quarantine in a hotel on their Island no questions asked, you go directly to jail so to speak. No second tests are given the next day. False positives is why we cancelled our July 13 Bermuda cruise.
  2. based on the seat map for the EWR to BDA this morning, there are over 30 open seats
  3. Sorry about your medical issue occurring prior to an exciting cruise coming up. Glad you had insurance. I cancelled outside the 14 day period thus getting a voucher. I still read these threads hoping that Bermuda would eliminate the 14 day quarantine for a positive PCR result, which on retesting could have ruled out a false positive. I think it is great Viking moved the cruise start date to Friday. As a number of cruisers have indicated this will help with the requirements to get into Bermuda by eliminating the weekend processing. But this tells me Bermuda will not reduce their entranc
  4. Yep, I agree with you about the gymnastics one has to go through.
  5. With the 6 new Bermuda sailings added, why depart now on Friday instead of Tuesday ? Port congestion ?
  6. Denny01, I agree with you. I calculate the cruise cost per day and compare apples to apples. My cost per day may be different then someone else’s. For the same cruise I quoted the S2 at 2899 a A2 was only $1,899. That is low.
  7. Booked today June 29, 2021. Check out the Eclipse Alaska June 22, 2022. S2 aft was $2899 pp all included. OBC is $300 pp. so you can find reasonable prices at times.
  8. Thanks for the heads up. I might add this booking number will be cancelled this Friday. Using the ripcord. I hope the visual helped answer the question.
  9. Would Viking Air move our 2 airline seats to the wings to avoid contact when flying into BDA ? See how you have no control !
  10. She did not mention much about false negatives. Her focus was why has my side of the family produced several false positives. She only found false positives will be more frequent. The PCR test must have a form of kryptonite in the chemicals, kryptonite and I do not do well together. That’s my thinking.
  11. it gets worse, ask your insurance broker this specific question “ Does my policy cover all my 12 days of Quarantine expense at a Hotel/Resort which is dictated by the Bermuda government” . Not 12 days in a hospital but 12 days at a Hotel/Resort. Then ask how many days of coverage do I have after my cruise is over, which is referred to as continuation of coverage.
  12. I am with you on this, I would not have believed it myself. I also have a brother who tested positive on the CVS rapid test only then to have the PCR test clear him. He also had Covid and had the vaccination. So I now have 2 brothers taking Covid tests and the tests getting it wrong. you would think I should feel lucky, what is the probability 3 out of 5 brothers experiencing incorrect test results, me being the third.
  13. actually my Hysteria comes from a false positive with no retest and confined to Bermudas quarantine requirements. This has nothing to do about getting COVID or any lapse in Vikings safety net.
  14. Last Sunday, my son went into the ER, they kept him overnight. The gold standard PCR test was given to him as a requirement for his admission. He tested positive and was put on a Covid floor. The next day the Hospital drew blood and tested him for antibodies. The antibody test cleared him from Covid. So my wife using her nursing background did extensive research on Covid false positives. I have no beef with anyone going on these Bermuda cruises. I booked knowing of the restrictions and face mask wearing. But frankly I was not aware of false positives and the firm 14 day quarantine by
