  1. Good news just keeping piling on....😔 https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/23922-cdc-raises-warning-for-cruise-travel.html Looks like the vaccine's will be what is needed to turn this situation around once and for all.... I know its been discussed on various boards within CC...but I would think cruisers and all travelers (ship or airline) may need to show proof of immunization at least in the short term (20121?) in order to travel outside ones country? I know I would be comfortable with that requirement getting on a flight or on a ship - for my own health

  3. Cannot believe this latest setback will be good for the industry at all...esp those who were planning to test the waters soon with trail sailings w/ volunteers from US ports. Understand the need for the lines to start somewhere.....but it appears SeaDream did everything right and they still could not prevent a case on board with a reduced capacity of guests and crew. I think the infection rate is just so high right now that even with prior negative testing - unless passengers are quarantined at the port for 14 days in a bubble before embarking - there is a chance of becoming i
  4. Thanks for the link cruising nut - totally agree...even with all the testing before and during the cruise - a possible case is still possible. I am sure this will be all over the boards and the internet if the case turns out to be positive - esp with the point guy on board reporting. Will be interesting for sure....

  6. Absolutely agree with other posters.... Once we are able to start cruising again would definitely be more comfortable on a smaller ship like Seabourn 😉 Just one more reason to sail Seabourn 😘
  7. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/23757-cdc-defer-all-cruise-travel.html this year just keeps getting better and better... not a surprise though with the current situation .....
  8. Thank you for the encouraging words Mrs Miggins. Have to agree with you - appears the Greek government and its citizens have a handle on the situation. I hope it stays that way as we enter the fall season and the winter. Stay well everyone ..... Bob
  9. Looking at these sailings as well - and have to agree - the pricing is very enticing... when I went to do a moc booking for sailings in the second half of May the ship was wide open..... but also agree the uncertainty of what the situation will be here in the US and in Greece come May is preventing me from committing right now. My wife and I talked about it yesterday and the thought of visiting all those islands (for the first time for us) but possibly not being able to go off on our own if excursions at that time are still limited to ship based ones only would definitely
  10. Bigkahuna - would love to hear about your sailing - either during or after if you are able to post!
  11. thanks all - may need to take a look at Ponant - reading and hearing a lot of good things about them lately..... Not as luxury as our Seabourn...but may be an option....?

  13. Another round of cancellations just posted by Cruise Industry News.... very extensive into next spring for some ships ....
  14. Thank you all for your responses. ! Bob
  15. Thank you rka - always enjoy your posts and perspective. I for one am looking forward optimistically for whatever the future holds. Stay well everyone - we have a lot of cruising to catch up on when the time is right for each of us !
