  1. Gasp! They have an international rugby match???? 😃 Over here, all adult team sports have been prohibited. Go OZ Go! https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/bc-adult-sports-ban-1.5826300
  2. Anyway, the CDC is not responsible for this round of cancellations. The cruise companies are cancelling world-wide because of the surge in the pandemic on so many continents. What I can't understand is why they're cancelling cruises in Australasia and East Asia. These countries have been diligent and effective. Got the disease well under control. They should be rewarded, and the cruise companies can build goodwill.
  3. You don't get it??? All THAT affects the cruise and the passengers. Have you missed the news about the cruises where covid had sneaked onboard and caused an outbreak? 🙄 At this time, we should be worrying about outbreaks in hospitals and care homes. Not about a cruise. https://bc.ctvnews.ca/5-dead-dozens-infected-covid-19-outbreak-has-spread-at-metro-vancouver-hospital-1.5202975 You can cruise after you get vaccinated. Won't be long. I hope that your family will get vaccinated?
  4. You're not Charlton Heston. You're alive. 🙄 Does it matter to you that a 100k people are in hospital for covid? That the death toll has reached 2,700 a day? The epidemic has not began to peak? Why blame the CDC when people refuse to follow the safety guidelines? Blame the people who are advocating resistance to public health instructions. The cruise companies have no choice but to cancel! 😨 Congrats. UK is reaping the fruits of the lockdown. Infections headed in the right direction. You'll be cruising sooner than others. 👍
  5. Will covid19 be under control by March 1st?? 🙄
  6. Last I checked, Ontario and BC per capita new cases was comparable. I may be over optimistic, but I think the province will have it under control by January.
  7. Good for them, and Singapore. Cruising will restart where the disease is under control. East Asia by spring. Hopefully, Hawaii and Canada too.
  8. Sorry, guys. Canada's PM is very definite... https://ca.news.yahoo.com/canada-pm-trudeau-indicates-u-153620304.html Looks like Alaska and New England is not possible till summer. Still hoping that Hawaii will open up sooner. Aloha. My best bet is still Europe where the lockdowns are having the right effect. I'm eyeing a June cruise in the Mediterranean.
  9. Your wife does wonderful and dangerous work. My best wishes. Do take care and get plenty of rest. Once there is heavy community spread, it is impossible to keep covid19 out of hospitals and seniors homes. Fatigue is the issue. Of course, some facilities do better than others.
  10. That's not as bad as... https://www.cnbc.com/2020/11/24/close-to-1000-cleveland-clinic-caregivers-infected-with-covid-19.html
  11. I started searching itineraries last week. Noticed that all three Seashore Seaside and Seaview will be in the western Mediterranean next October!!! Good prices. Anyone else interested?
  12. Some people will be cruising. Thanks to BermudaBound at the MSC Forum... https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/23930-msc-gets-green-light-for-japan-start.html Inevitable that Japan will form a bubble with the rest of East Asia. Next, Australasia and Hawaii. Aloha!!!
  13. All depends on your health! I've had the covid and it was scary bad. As per the statistics, covid is bad news for seniors with pre-conditions. My recommendation is that those seniors don't travel where masks are not mandatory. And, don't travel to places where the disease is not under control. Where there are high rates of community spread, it is impossible to keep it out of carehomes etc even if masks are mandatory. Even after vaccination, exercise caution. 5-10% of the vaccinated are not protected.
  14. I hope that you extend the benediction to everyone. Thanksgiving in the USA and Canada dates back to English harvest traditions.
  15. Heads Up! Bubbles are forming. Canadians can travel to Hawaii (positivity rate 2%) without quarantine! Yah! https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/westjet-air-canada-hawaii-travel-quarantine-covid-19-1.5809121 Westjet offering covid insurance up to C$200k. https://www.westjet.com/en-ca/book-trip/vacation/covid-insurance The only thing holding me back is the 14 day quarantine requirement. Hope that it changes in January!!! Hope that the new administration will allow limited cruising out of Hawaii in April, if covid peaks in
