  1. The only 99.9% fool proof way to be sure a passenger does not have Covid is to do a test at boarding and get an immediate result. That is certainly not going to happen. Some islands now have a requirement of a negative test 10 days prior to boarding but that is, although better than nothing, not going to be that helpful as you can be negative today and positive the next day. Maybe one of those Covid sniffing dogs at boarding??
  2. I'm not sure how having a negative test is worthwhile as it is taking some states many days to get a result and then you could be negative last week and positive this week.
  3. I think this is a sound idea and I wouldn't be surprised if it goes past September. Florida is having a rather tough time right now and I'm sure that multi thousands of tourists descending on S. Florida to go on cruises is not the best idea.
  4. I would extend your time in Nashville to more than 2 days. There is enough to do to fill at least 3 full days.
  5. This has certainly been one weird year. I believe 2020 will go down in the history books for all the wrong reason. Just when you think things are looking up another crisis/issue takes its place. We will get through this year and let's all hope for a better 2021😊
  6. You know there is enough us against them in the news and on social media, this is a cruise forum and I think we should stick to cruise related topics and leave the politics alone.
  7. No masks for me. I just shifted my 2 cruises to next year. Too much unknowns for this year.
  8. I tried to find my answer but there are so many pages to sift through so I apologize if this is a repeat question. Can you use Lift&Switch to move a 2021 cruise to a 2022 cruise?
  9. I would say the others were dressed in shorts or other very informal wear. I don't remember seeing anyone dressed down so much to be offensive (like cut off jeans and wife beater shirts) I enjoyed seeing the ones dressed in formal wear as you don't get to see that at your local restaurants😊
  10. We were on Oasis in late February and I would estimate 33% dressed formally and another 33% dressed nicely meaning slacks and collared shirt for men and nice dress or slacks/capris with nice top for women. There were quite a few families where everyone was dressed in their best, especially the little girls in their adorable girly outfits.
  11. I just did a Lift&Switch for Mariner 10/05/20 to 10/18/21 with same cabin and my OBC transferred. My travel agent was able to complete it in a very timely manner and the new cruise was in my account with the cruise planner up and running. It was easy peesy😊
  12. I hope when you are "getting on with your life" you are practicing social distancing or wearing a mask if you can't. I don't consider myself " Covid terrified" but I am cognizant of the potential danger that it can cause. I am "Covid aware"
  13. There is no way they can test every single person every day. It is not physically or financially possible. Plus there would be many people who would oppose being tested as it would violate their rights, just like there are many people now refusing to wear masks as it violates their rights.
