  1. The Canadian government announced the cruise ban will continue until Feb. 2022. Unless situation changes, the Alaska cruise season is done. https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/other/canada-says-no-cruises-until-2022-shutting-down-alaska-trips/ar-BB1dp7CD

  3. I know how you feel, I'm in Toronto and my brother passed away on the 9th of this month. He was ill and had heart failure. Oddly, they did no testing on him to see whether he had Covid. Making arrangements for funeral was a challenge and made the whole process be less dignified. I'm hoping this all ends soon. I hope your aunt will be okay.
  4. We booked Allure for Xmas, seems rates are higher than previous years but that's probably down to pent up demand.
  5. We book all through Air2Sea, it's easier if they cancel.
  6. Really like your post, it shows the normal world will return soon. I'd say 20% cost of cabana would be good.
  7. We're booked on Quantum in August out of Seattle. Fingers crossed we get to go, we're supposed to do similar one this year and looking forward to seeing Alaska.
  8. My condolences to your and your family. Your Uncle and Auntie sound like wonderful people.
  9. Unfortunately, the "mandatory" 14 day quarantine in Canada is largely a paper tiger. There are a lot of people exempt from the 14 day period which largely renders it meaningless. If they had actually mandated a strict 14 day quarantine, I don't think we'd have the numbers in Canada we do now.
  10. I really don't see this as a reason cruising will be stalled until 2022. Vaccines will put things on the right course before the middle of the year. I do see proof of vaccine being a requirement for boarding for the immediate future.
  11. We all have our own opinions for sure. My perspective on this is that in past decades when vaccines were developed for yellow fever, polio, mumps, measles the cycle for development would take more than 10 years. However, this was at a time when there were a very limited number of labs capable of doing this research. In the interim period, research has exploded and there are thousands of facilities capable of conducting this type of research. Technology, scientific understanding and computing power have all made great leaps forward. Add on top of this, the great deal of knowledge on corona
  12. I think given that our PM didn't seem to negotiate our being able to produce vaccine as other countries have, we'll probably be waiting awhile for vaccine. I think it looks like the US has their act together and many will be vaccinated in the coming months. It might not be a case of us opening the border but of when the US will allow us in. In any case, I don't see the border being closed past May. Anyway, hoping this is the case as we're booked for an Alaska cruise out of Seattle in August.
  13. I think restart will depend on two factors: 1- How big a spike we get this fall; and 2- Who wins the US election. If low spike and Rep win, then I could see Jan/Feb restart out of Florida. If large spike and Dem win, then I think your right with the summer.
