Canada Says No To Technical Calls & Chances of PVSA Waiver


Recommended Posts

So Canada believes a ship in their waters that doesn't have any physical contact with their soil or by persons onboard, i.e. not disembarking, is hazardous to the health of Canadians? What happened to the "science" of social distancing?

Steve, no difference here in the USA.  The CDC order is for ships sailing in US waters as well.  By the way, to perform the "Technical Stop" requires contact between the Canadians and people on the ship.

Too bad we couldn't keep the Canadian snowbirds from coming down this winter. To avoid the "no driving across the border" law into the US (as Canada had imposed already going the other way), the Canadians had their vehicles and RVs towed across the border. Sounds like we needed to make a change to that law as well as to the outdated law from the 1800's that requires cruise ships to make a bogus stop in Canada.

 

Having to take an Alaska cruise by starting in Vancouver was enough to make us never take one again. The hotel was very overpriced, and C&I was a nightmare coming into the airport. It was actually the worst airport experience we have ever had, and we're pretty well traveled.

 

"By the way, to perform the "Technical Stop" requires contact between the Canadians and people on the ship."  Can you explain why this can't be done without masks and social distancing, which the CDC says protects us?
