Depends on when in August. I'd probably only consider cruising towards the end of August.

I sure hope so.   Mid August B2B Radiance Alaska.  Big milestone birthday for the DH.

Too many variables.

What is the health situation nationwide and worldwide?

What changes have they made to the onboard experience?

What is the airline situation?

 

Need another month or so to decide.  But if you are coming up on final payment, only you can make that decision.

We just cancelled our 8/15 cruise, too much uncertainty. We are both over 70 and may never cruise again after 35 cruises.

Not a snowball's chance in hell!   All it takes is 1 person to show symptoms and you're confined to the cabin for the duration and maybe even 14 days for quarantine....

Hoping to, but do want to know what safeguards/processes/agreements are put in place to avoid a 14 day quarantine on the ship first.

Not a chance.  Had Med cruise scheduled for Oct and canceled it. Also moved Anthem out of NJ for Jan 2021 to Jan 2022.

We'll have take a rain check. I'm hoping I'm still going to Sturgis (friend and I) in August. 🤞Then Kathy and I are booked on a Pacific/Canada coastal cruise in September. 🤞 I just canceled our June east coast  trip today. Hopefully our annual July and September Jackson Hole Wy trips are a go. 🤞 One day and trip at a time.

We will not cruise again until there have been 2-3 months of multiple cruise ships sailing with no quarantine incidents or reports of multiple illnesses of passengers after returning home. There are too many other options for travel to take a chance of being quarantined on a ship for 14 or more days.

Also, just prior to cruises stopping, both of our employers put in rules that anyone taking a cruise or visiting a foreign country could not return to work for at least 14 days after returning. We don’t want to take 3 weeks of leave or unpaid time off just to take a one week cruise. So until those rules are changed, we won’t be cruising.

I have had one booked for 8/21 for a long time.  I will for sure go!  I would go tomorrow if they let me go.  I just want to cruise!!  We are booked for Aug/Sept/2 in Oct/2 in Dec and plan to go on all of them.  Also have 2 booked for end of June and just praying those don't get canceled also.  We were supposed to go this week and again 5/24 and both are canceled.  Just want to get back to normal and do what we love, just being on a cruise ship to the caribbean.
