Cruise ship will be fully vaccinated..?

Country specific warnings will probably be covered on MVJ, just as they had been pre-pandemic for visas and for inoculations. I guess this is something we will have to keep an eye on once we can actually get into MVJ to manage these bookings.

Good point. I don't recall seeing any country specific advisories in my MVJ, but it's possible I just didn't look. 🙄

the requirement, such as Iceland and Bermuda have, to pre-register before departure

I guess I would have thought that the pre-registration would come from Viking for its pax and crew.  Perhaps that is naive.  Let’s keep sharing info as we get it.  Also, I am assuming that my CDC vaccine card is sufficient proof.  It’s all we have.

I was going to ask that question in the email I sent Viking and did at one point. But when I looked at the pre-reg form for Iceland decided not to (didn't check Bermuda.) Perhaps I should have left the question there. Will share what I learn.

In two Viking world cruises, they have taken care of every item of clearance, immigration, inspection necessary.  I don't think they will stop taking care of those type things now.

For those interested in Bermuda - here is the site for information on entry to Bermuda during COVID times, dated April 2, 2021.

I guess all they have to say is do you want to get back on the ship?

Or....next question could be..."how long can you tread water?"  😁

I expect that it would booking by booking.  The new itineraries are not yet accessible on MVJ, so know way of checking it out at this point.

 Yes but guests, except maybe on the WCs,  are responsible for making sure that they have all of the paperwork required -- visas, vaccinations, etc.

Yet another reason to take a WC.🍸

Way too much hassle for me!!  

Agree. Vaccination helps but doesn't get you out of testing and te-testing. Like Iceland's approach better.

If I had to choose between the two, I'd go for Iceland. Hope to get there someday - probably will do it with Collette and add a pre and post-extension. Even then it doesn't come up to two weeks.

Viking told me today that the entire crew as well as the passengers for the Iceland cruise will have been vacinated.   It was one of the requirements to cruise in Iceland.
