  1. Haha. No, I'm not a troll. I might disagree with you, but that doesn't make me a troll. But goodbye and have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Welcome to CC, I see this is your 4th post in our community. Just because I didn't think your post to me warranted a comment, doesn't mean there are Crickets. I also never said that Mumps and Measles weren't a virus. I simply stated that comparing them with Covid is ridiculous. The one link between the 3 is that the MMR vaccine can help with Covid. You obviously missed the point I was making in that original statement, which was all of those had much hi
  2. Sorry my dear....my information is not 100% false. 😉 But if that is what makes you feel better that you know EXACTLY how the contract tracing works. I have friends who do this as well, and I have been informed, not only from them but also my doctor...who by the way insisted and still insists that the last test that showed positive was in all certainty...a false positive test! Do you not think that the majority of people who tested positive have not contacted those they feel they have been in contact with? I know everyone that we are related to, work with or are friends with have all let us kno
  3. Hahaha. You totally missed my point. Contract tracing is a joke. The CDC has pretty much claimed that there is no real way of knowing WHERE you have picked up the virus. As for notifying others...they DO NOT do this, and this is put on the person who has tested positive. We know this first hand, as we have been around others who tested positive in the months that this has been around.
  4. I don't need to share information about MY area on a cruise board. And yes...first hand knowledge from those in the medical field mean a hell of a lot more than something that someone "found online". 🙂 As for deciding factor...yes, the mortality rate has A LOT to do with requirements like this. It isn't like a simple mask mandate. But thanks for playing!
  5. I see you are not from the US, let alone Tennessee. I can assure you that it is not as bad as the information you are googling. 😉 I have a friend who works for Vanderbilt here in Nashville. I also work for a pretty prestige company and have quite a bit of connections with the Chamber... What you are sharing isn't factual. 😉
  6. I can almost with full certainty tell you that a vaccine will not be required. The mortality rate of Covid does not warrant a requirement for a vaccine to cruise, fly, travel, etc. Maybe some people should step away from the TV, do some actual research. Talk to those in the medical field (I have two family members in the medical field), and talk to some people that actually have some logical information...FACTUAL information about this virus, past viruses, etc. I just can't with you. Your OPINION is simply that. Maybe you will decide not to cruise when you see that we won't be required
  7. Care to explain? You quoted me but have nothing to add but an emoji? LOL
  8. This is really comical. You do realize that those not wanting to get this vaccine has NOTHING to do with someone being scared of needles. As a woman who did several rounds of IVF treatment and had to have an IM needle (22 gauge) stuck in my butt over and over again as well as several other shots I had to give myself or the countless times I had to give blood, I have no fear of needles what so ever. It all boils down to the fact that this vaccine has been rushed and not tested well enough to even consider putting in my body. Nor am I going to be forced to put it in my body to cruise. These crui
  9. First, anyone would be crazy to take this vaccine immediately after being released. There has not been enough testing to know what the long term affects of this vaccine would be on someone. Not to mention....the RUSH to get it out. We have had the flu vaccine for decades and people still get the flu after taking the vaccine. The only time I have ever had the flu, I had gotten the vaccine. Since not taking the vaccine I have not gotten the flu...knock on wood. BUT, should I get the flu, I will be ok....like millions of others every flu season. It is a virus, so yes...it can sprea
  10. That didn't age well for you... If you don't feel safe cruising with people who won't vaccinate for Covid, then don't cruise. It is that simple. I promise there will be far more people who won't get the vaccine, especially anytime soon than those that will get it. Here is the thing. This is a virus, not a disease. Not to mention that many people get the flu vaccine that has been in production for years...and still get the flu. Matter of fact, the ONE time I got flu, I had received the vaccine. Putting Covid in the same category as Mumps/Measles is ludacris. I cannot u
  11. As someone who grew up in central Florida...I can tell you a "trip to the beach" isn't all that, especially when it comes to cruising. I'm not a beach goer, but I'll jump on a cruise this weekend if I could...even if I didn't even step foot off the ship. I'm one of those that is not going to be a negative Nancy, and I'm not all about doom and gloom. MSC is showing that they are capable of cruising for 7 days, and I think that is a HUGE step...even though it is a Europe cruise. There are plenty of people that are ready to cruise, and there are already some islands that are starting
  12. Yeah, this is strictly for budgeting purposes, not necessarily what will actually happen.
  13. I've had this argument with many people over the past several months. HERE is my issue with the numbers the CDC pushes out. Right from their own website, they cannot give EXACT flu numbers...but instead give a 'range', which by the way...happens to be a fairly large range. So, if they cannot even give accurate to the number flu numbers, which they have been tracking for decades, how on earth can you believe a straight flat out number for Covid?? It is impossible! I personally have had two friends with loved ones die during this mess that are still fighting to get the death certificates fixed b
  14. I don't think anyone has to worry about the vaccine becoming mandatory. But I can assure you that there will be a ton that will choose other vacations over getting this vaccine. I'm in that group. There is no chance in the world I would EVER take this vaccine, and I am not an anti-vaxer at all. The problem with this vaccine is that it is being "rushed" and not properly tested. Not to mention that the mortality rate for this virus doesn't warrant the need to take the vaccine. Um, ok. Not sure what is so wrong about someone who refuses to take a vaccine that has not been properly
  15. This same thing happened to friends we know here in Tennessee. They both went to get tested and waited an hour and half to get the test and decided to leave and try another testing facility. They drove by the other testing facility and the line was too long so they were going to go back in two days when it was open again. Got a call the following day from the first place saying their tests were positive...they never took that test! Again, we personally know these people. I agree with the first part of your statement...this virus will be with us for a while and a vaccine isn't al
