In all the cruises I've taken, as well as many times as I've done all-inclusive resorts, I've never once gotten sick.  Hand sanitizer is my friend.

After surviving the past year without getting infected (well, I guess I could have been asymptomatic.... hmm)  my new view on hand sanitizer will be forever be burned in my memory. Soap/water and sanitizer will always be my my first thought after I touch something outside my home.

 

How long does this constant thought last..... who knows??? One thing for sure, I will always use those auto dispense sanitizer stations wherever they are setup (land or seas).

 

cheers,

John

Just saw post on my Princess Group fb re: UK summer cruises require passengers vaccinated, but did not say that for crew. Mentions testing crew. 
sorry I can’t post a link. It gives a run down on requirements. Booking starts next week for UK only.

Well, if you have been vaccinated, you should be protected against infection  - after all, that is the whole point of being vaccinated!

I think that is why most cruise lines will probably require everyone to go on ship sponsored excursions

Several posters have discussed masks or not when vaccinated.  If I am on a cruise ship - or any other locale - and everyone is vaccinated, well forget the masks.  Otherwise, when do they ever go away?  What are the conditions to go back to pre-Covid?  Perhaps some people will start wearing masks during flu season as a precaution.  Who knows?

 

But mask wearing requirements/regulations/recommendations were brought in specifically due to Covid-19.  Once "everyone" is vaccinated, well sure anyone can wear a mask if it makes them feel more comfortable or safer in a group/crowd, but there should be no forced requirement.

The vaccine is not 100% effective. If you come in contact with 20 infected people , 1 could infect you. Probably depends how badly they are infected, what strain and how effective your immune system is. Some people with compromised immune systems are more at risk. So wearing a mask is probably a good idea but it should be voluntary after you are  vaccinated. . 

 

Then almost everyone will walk around without a mask vaccinated or not  because many who have not been vaccinated will not want to wear a mask. Just looking at someone without a mask one cannot tell if they have been vaccinated or not so the unvaccinated ones can get away with it.

Regal Princess will offer 14 UK voyages running from July 31 through to September 23, 2021. Sky Princess will offer eight UK cruises, running from August 30 through to September 28, 2021.  

Regal Princess and Sky Princess will offer scenic cruises and voyages with stops in UK ports-of-call including Liverpool, Belfast and Greenock, with itineraries ranging from three to seven nights. 

Guests on Regal Princess and Sky Princess will be able to enjoy 'Truly Touchless' experiences and personalised services through the cruise line's MedallionClass Experience that supports new health protocols. 

The cruise line's award-winning OceanMedallionTM wearable device replaces the traditional cruise card and pairs with embedded IoT ("Internet of things") -driven innovative technology to significantly expand touch-free options and personalisation on board Princess MedallionClass ships including:

  • touchless embarkation and disembarkation

  • completely contactless commerce
  • simplified safety training
  • on-demand food, beverages and retail items delivered anywhere on board
  • guest service requests via mobile device chat
  • location-based gaming and wagering
  • entertainment content via smart devices

MedallionClass ships also offer unprecedented connectivity that is fast, reliable and unlimited through MedallionNet™ - hailed as the best Wi-Fi at sea. With a wireless access point in every stateroom, guests can stream favourite movies, shows, games and music; connect to favourite social media sites; and video chat from anywhere on the ship. 

These Summer Seacations will feature many of the signature onboard experiences enjoyed on a Princess holiday. All world-class dining venues will be open including the speciality restaurants, where guests can dine at Princess favourites Crown Grill Steakhouse and Sabatini's Italian Trattoria, as well as newer additions to the fleet such as Sky Princess' Bistro Sur La Mer speciality created with Three Michelin star chef Emmanuel Renaut. 

A variety of entertainment will be on offer including award-winning production shows in the Princess Theatre, Movies Under the Stars, celebrity guest speakers and live musical performances, such as the resident trio in our signature live jazz venue, Take Five. Relaxation and leisure facilities such as fitness classes, swimming pools and spa treatments will also be available. 

Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises vice president UK and Europe, said, "We share in our guests' excitement today as we unveil the details for our new Summer Seacations. With Princess Cruises, the ship is also the destination. Guests can make the most of our multiple dining options, order food and drink poolside, using the MedallionClass app, that can be delivered to you, and enjoy fantastic entertainment both day and night. 

"These resort-style seacations offer the perfect opportunity to relax and enjoy some time off. We believe that these cruises will appeal to both our loyal guests who are eager to get back onboard our beautiful MedallionClass ships and holidaymakers looking to experience Princess for the first time. 

"While international travel remains uncertain, these new cruises mean that UK residents can take a well-deserved holiday around the UK. We are also delighted that our new cruises will offer the choice between scenic voyages and port-of-call itineraries where guests can visit the historic UK cities of Liverpool, Belfast and Glasgow."  

All guests will have the opportunity to make their cruise all-inclusive by selecting the Princess Plus fare, which includes the line's premium drinks package, unlimited MedallionNet Wi-Fi and gratuities for £30 per person per day.  

All-inclusive fares for a balcony stateroom start from £539pp for a three-night scenic voyage; £599pp for a four-night cruise with up to one port; and £999pp for a seven-night cruise with up to three ports-of-call. Guests can book with a £50 deposit if booked before May 3, 2021. 

Bookings made by April 30, 2021 will be covered by Princess Cruises 'Book with Confidence' policy, meaning guests can cancel up to 30 days prior to sailing and receive cancellation fees back as a Future Cruise Credit. 

Given the advanced progress of the UK vaccination programme, and strong expressed preference on the part of guests for this limited series of UK coastal cruises, these sailings on Regal Princess and Sky Princess will be for UK resident COVID-19 vaccinated* guests only. 

All guests and crew will be required to follow enhanced health and well-being measures to protect everyone onboard on these cruises. These have been developed with guidance from our global medical and public health experts and scientists and in close coordination with UK government agencies. These protocols include enhanced sanitisation measures, appropriate social distancing and the wearing of masks in certain areas of the ship. Crew will also undergo a strict testing and quarantine regime as well as regular testing during their time on board. Our protocols are subject to change, as we will continue to work with our experts and with government bodies to ensure all of our practices evolve in line with latest advice, with our primary focus always being to protect the health and wellbeing of our crew, guests and the communities we visit. Travel insurance will also be mandatory for all guests.**

Thanks caribill. I am glad to see Only vaccinated passengers allowed, but expect same for crew before I sail in 2022.

What is wrong with that statement?

 

According to Wikipedia and numerous (as in too many to mention) other sources. Fauci,

  • in 1968 (after his residency) joined the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as a clinical associate in the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases' (NIAID) Laboratory of Clinical Investigation (LCI).
  • became head of the LCI's Clinical Physiology Section in 1974.
  • in 1980 was appointed chief of the NIAID's Laboratory of Immunoregulation.
  • in 1984, he became director of the NIAID (a position he still holds).
  • has been offered but declined the position of director of the NIH
  • has been at the forefront of U.S. efforts to contend with viral diseases like HIV/AIDS, SARS, the Swine flu, MERS, Ebola, and COVID-19. He played a significant role in the early 2000s in creating the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and in driving development of biodefense drugs and vaccines following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

 

On the other hand, Paul

  • attended Baylor University but did not graduate.
  • graduated from Duke University School of Medicine with an MD in 1988 and completed residency in 1993.
  • has held a Kentucky state-issued medical license since 1993.
  • was certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO) in 1995.  In 1992, the ABO changed its certification program, which had previously awarded lifetime certifications, now required ophthalmologists to recertify every 10 years. Those who had already been given lifetime certification were not required to recertify. Paul felt this was unfair and began an aggressive campaign to have all ophthalmologists recertify every ten years.
  • he set up the National Board of Ophthalmology (NBO) to offer an alternative certification system.  The NBO was, itself, never accepted as an accrediting entity by organizations such as the American Board of Medical Specialties, and its certification was considered invalid by many hospitals and insurance companies. It was incorporated in 1999, dissolved in 2000, recreated in 2005, and dissolved again in 2011.
  • specializes in cataract and glaucoma surgeries, LASIK procedures, and corneal transplants.

Royal Caribbean just announced that vaccines will be required for all of their sailing for everyone 18+. Those under 18 who have not been vaccinated will be required to have a COVID test. I'm sure the other major lines will follow suit.

If it's a choice between believing a ophthalmologist (who set up his own accrediting board to get accredited) and a renowned expert in infectious diseases, I'm going to go with the expert.

Same here.  Received 2nd Pfizer on 27 January.  Do not eat out in restaurants (too many people mask-less), wipe the car down every time its used, grocery shop early AM Sundays to avoid others, etc.  Will continue to do so until CDC gives the "all clear" even if that takes another year, plus.  Cruising will be like that - wearing masks in public areas, dining as far away from others as can be arranged, etc.  The idea is to remain safe and help keep others safe.  Throwing off the mask and yelling "whoopee" doesn't make it safe to cruise.

I would like to explain why I disagree with you.

 

A vaccine is not a magic wand. It does not form a virus-proof bubble around you. Your body will continue to fight the virus that you are exposed to.

 

There are two key factors. First, no one knows (without an anti-body test) how capable your body is at any one time. In fact, we know that the body's immune response declines over time.

 

Second, the danger depends on the viral load you are exposed to. A long period of face time (several minutes) with a contagious person could expose you to enough virus to overwhelm your defenses.

 

Here's the important part. You could get infected and infect others. The health experts tell us to maintain safety protocols and wear masks. Do what they do...

 

https://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/vaccinated-dr-fauci-covid-19-precautions-personal/2582742/

 

Its a no brainer.

Fair enough.  You go ahead and follow along with continued mask wearing.  Is there a situation in which you see not wearing a mask in the future?  Your words above might imply there will never be a condition in which you feel safe without one.  That is your personal decision/choice as to your own health. 

 

No one has ever thought that the public should be wearing masks during flu and cold season.  Perhaps this will be a practice in future.  I just don't expect to participate.

 

BTW, the flu vaccine is far from a magic wand.  I have never had a flu shot.  I hope that the Covid-19 shot turns out to be much more effective and holds up the efficacy numbers quoted thus far. 

 

I think the day will come when some folks will still want to wear a mask and others won't and I think both groups are going to have to respect the other's choice.

Actually, there are many success stories where I wouldn't bother to wear a mask. In China, people voluntarily wear masks because they have symptoms of something. Since they voluntarily wear masks to protect others, I wouldn't bother to wear a mask if I have no symptoms. Do what they do!

 

In countries where they have squashed covid, mask wearing is precautionary for the vulnerable. Why should I wear a mask in a place which has not had a case in weeks? Do what they do! Squash covid. Don't co-exist with the disease!

 

Last week, I was watching a news clip of a live outdoor concert in Queenstown, NZ. Not a mask in sight. Six thousand people jammed shoulder to shoulder. Do what they do. 

 

I hope that you will open your mind. Do a 360 and understand the world you live in.

Not sure what you are getting at.  My mind is open and working and I am not the typical sheep just going along with whatever the politicians come up with next.  That doesn't mean I am reckless.  Although some people thought we were crazy to spend two months in South Florida this Winter.  It was safer and more enjoyable there than at home where we are pounded 24/7 about Covid-19 issues. 

 

We had to suffer with the 14-day quarantine Trudeau punishment while, if we had spent a long weekend in Toronto, it would have been much more risky than the two months in Florida and no one would have chased us, phoned us, made us do three tests (all negative) and kept us locked up for two weeks.

Perhaps somebody knows the answers to the following questions.

 

When Herd Immunity has been defined as having a high percentage of a population/community immune to an infectious disease, precisely how does the Herd Immunity concept define a population or community?

 

If everyone onboard a ship has been fully vaccinated, wouldn't the population of said ship have herd immunity while onboard?

 

I keep hearing percentages being tossed around by our medical 'experts' but they have given no clear, concrete definition of when Herd Immunity has been achieved for which specific communities; a city, a state, a country, a continent, the world. 

 

Has anybody actually heard a clear statement of when we can stop being subject to these 'emergency' provisions?  ( I mean something precisely specific, not a vague Herd Immunity statement.)

 

Thanks in advance.
