Celebrity Cruisers - How are Things where YOU are?


Recommended Posts

DW and I had our first Moderna jabs yesterday afternoon. A first-rate clinic, very well organized and great staff, medical and otherwise. At the end of our 15 minute wait, we checked out with no paper work given to us, but an email with a PDF attached, providing all of the relevant information, hit my iPhone before we even reached the door.

 

Other than very minor soreness at the jab site, neither of us has experienced any side effects.

 

Now we wait until July 31 for the second shot, keeping our fingers crossed over recent speculation in the Canadian media that the length of the delay till the second shot might be shortened as more vaccine becomes available.

Great news for you!  I am on day 5 after my second Moderna shot.  Sore arm was about the extent of my side effects.  Now gone!

As from today Australians can now travel to New Zealand. Vaccination not required nor quarantine/isolation on arrival nor on return to Oz. No COVID testing either. Government is now looking at similar arrangement with other countries e.g. Singapore.

Now if we can just get the OK for cruise ships......

I would imagine that (like the UK) there might be all-Australia cruises or Australia-NZ cruises for the citizens of your countries soon.  I think there are a couple of smaller lines cruising there but no major cruise lines yet.

Hey everyone! Thought I'd add to this, since I'm now finally able to (kind of) get excited about our trip.  My husband and I were booked on the Apex for an Eastern Mediterranean cruise in June of this year for our 5th wedding anniversary, but that got cancelled, so we moved it to June of 2022 to the Edge for a 7-night Italy and Greek Isles cruise, and decided to splurge on the Edge Villa. Meanwhile, here in California, I'm fully vaccinated, and my husband received his second jab this past Wednesday, so we'll both be ready to go next summer!  We were going to look at cruising earlier, like in January, but everything is still so uncertain. So we'll celebrate our 5th AND 6th wedding anniversaries in June of 2022! 

 

How's everyone else doing?  Happy May!

Happy Anniversary early!  Hope all will work out and we can travel once more.  We are booked for

July 19th  2021 from Italy.  We in our part of Florida seem to be doing well. Mask mandates have been lifted if you had your vaccination.  We were given a card with our information on it to carry with us. It is not a "passport" that some people are talking about, rather proof that you have been vaccinated.  Hope this will do...and we can once again travel and cruise.

In my state (PA) the governor has stated that we will follow the new CDC guidelines starting immediately for the fully vaccinated.  But so far everybody still seems to be wearing a mask.  We are about 45% fully vaccinated.

Our State (NY) seems to be 'following the science' at some distance...  [see the quote in my signature 😉]

I am in your neighboring state. The "gov" as he likes to be called, extended the state of emergency in our knucklehead state and said masks will stay on in indoor public areas. "Not where we want to be yet" says he!🙄

Dreaming of leaving for Florida!
