  1. You have way too much confidence in people, lol. I am amazed at how many people do not know which way North, South, East or West is. Our local tv weather people say they get numerous calls when giving a storm warning from people who want to know if the storm is headed in their direction. Many cannot pick out their home area on a map or know whether they live East or West of the main city.
  2. This requirement on page 24 of the 40 page order that was posted will keep many from being allowed on the conditional cruises: “(2) All volunteer passengers must be at least eighteen years old or older. The cruise ship operator must also obtain from all volunteer passengers a written certification from a healthcare provider that the volunteer passenger has no pre-existing medical conditions that would place that individual at high risk for COVID-19 as determined through CDC guidance. CDC may issue additional requirements through technical instructions or orders relating to a cruis
  3. Composting someone is now an option in Washington state: https://www.columbian.com/news/2021/jan/24/recompose-the-first-human-composting-funeral-home-in-the-u-s-is-now-open-for-business/
  4. Link to the story about the tests in China. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/asia_pacific/anal-swab-china-coronavirus/2021/01/27/cc284f56-6054-11eb-a177-7765f29a9524_story.html
  5. I would file a dispute with the credit card company, if that is what you used as payment. We had to do this with several shore excursions booked for our canceled Mediterranean cruise in May. The companies all offered full refunds if you canceled at least 24 hours in advance at the time we booked and paid, but changed their policy after Covid. All of the disputes were settled in our favor and refunded to the credit card.
  6. At this point I do not see cruises being able to resume without this happening on most of them. Until the vaccine is readily available, and all passengers & crew provide proof that they have had it before they are allowed to sail, they need to not attempt any more sailings. This just gives more bad publicity for cruises.
  7. At this point, I would not feel comfortable booking any flight prior to 6:00 PM or possibly not until the next day. Until the new COVID procedures are finalized, and there have been a couple of months of sailings with reviews with actual experience, no one knows how long it will take to get off the ship or through the airport. With scheduled, socially distanced disembarkation, possibly having to get a final Covid test, etc., the days of walking off the ship quickly with self-departure may be over (at least for a while).
  8. I don’t know if this will change anything on the rules for cruises to resume, but it can’t help. https://uk.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-cruiseship-idUKKBN2810X8 (Reuters) - The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on Saturday it recommended that all people avoid cruise ship travel as the risk of COVID-19 on liners is very high. The CDC advised passengers who decide to go on a cruise should get tested 3-5 days after their trip and stay home for 7 days after travel, even if they test negative. *****/2US9P5O Last

  10. I love the nostalgic ads, please keep posting. There are always going to be some who aren’t happy.
  11. It appears all US sailings of longer than 7 days through October are no longer listed on the website for booking. That would fit the timeline of the CDC order. With the additional time needed for testing before boarding disembarking, staggered boarding / disembarking times, additional cleaning, etc, they may no longer have departures on the same day the ships return. The 6 and 8 day alternating itineraries may become all 6 days with an extra day between each sailing.
