A new definition of a nude cruise?


Recommended Posts

Is there any chance the COVID disaster could have a positive impact on cruising in the long term? Assuming the vaccines prove to be effective, could a Norovirus vaccine soon follow leveraging the techniques learned from the COVID vaccine development and fast tracking approval?


Related to this, are we soon to see a new definition of a nude cruise? A nude cruise will be redefined as being a face mask optional cruise. Has anyone considered a potential increase in Norovirus outbreaks with the increased use of face masks? I believe a mask worn every day on a cruise will soon become a handy virus storage bin as I walk around constantly adjusting my mask with my hands and handing the bugs off to fellow cruisers.


I plan on getting the vaccine. I do not want to get COVID nor do I want to infect anyone. But that also applies to Norovirus and a lot of other communicable diseases. Please let me decide how much risk I am willing to take in order to cruise. And don't create new problems by becoming focused on one disease.

Some of our new PPE/precautions including masks have decreased the common flu markedly, and I expect increased vigilance would have the same effect on other viruses. More protection rather than less.  I'm all in.

I'm in the same boat as kanadakid.  I haven't even had a cold for the last year.

Being an introvert means that covering my face and social distancing aren't really tremendous trials either though.  In fact wearing a mask means far fewer candid photos or group photos.  A double victory.

I suggest people watch the You Tube video Covid-19 The Inside Story of the Princess Diamond Coronavirus Infection Outbreak Onboard. It should be all the explanation anyone needs regarding cruising, masks and vaccinations.  How fast people forget.

Off topic somewhat but can we use the $600 OBC we received from a cancelled cruise in the casino and is there a way to download it onto a machine then cash out?  

I believe you can as I've used OBC from a casino offer in this manner. I don't think the cancelled cruise OBC is any different
