Cruises Restarting for Vaccinated Only, Will You Go...?


Recommended Posts

Let's say RCCL got 100% of their crew vaccinated, & restarts cruising by June 1st.  They also requires 100% of the passengers to have a Covid Vaccine before sailing, will you get Vaccinated & are you willing to go cruising then...?

The only requirement are passports & vaccination card showing you're "fully vaccinated" (at least 2 weeks after your 2nd shot).

 

With our local communities getting to phase 1C to have vaccinations avail to all 16+ without conditions starting this coming week, things are looking better.

Please Let's not get into the intricate details & political statements. 

Just a simple poll to see if you're finally comfortable being full vaccinated to start going on cruises with other fully vaccinated people soon...

We think it's going that way so we are looking to get our first shot soon. When your company/boss tells you that they "strongly advise for you to get it" we think we  might better to keep our jobs. Yes, if it means to be able to cruise again...YES we will get it.

Already vaccinated so I cant und it. If cruises go I'm going vaccinated though I'm not sure where I put that cardboard card.

 

What will you do about the cdc testing requirement required until nov 1st? Cdc isnt known for doing what you want, and erring on the side of who cares about cruising. We got bigger fish to fry.

I'll go if the wife gets vaxed. She doesn't want it. I have pfizer #2 on this Wednesday. I did not get the vax for cruising but for personal health reasons.  We have a cruise for Aug 19, 2022. so things can and probably will drastically change by then.

We will be ready to book and cruise.  First booked cruise now is December but can add something sooner!  Both of us will be vaccinated and we don’t care if we have to wear masks or social distance.  We’re both happy on our balcony with the fantastic view and a cocktail!

What about children under the age of 16?  In this hypothetical are we assuming that they are not allowed onboard?

Under your scenario, I would go; IF and only IF there was NO mask mandate on board and NO distancing measures. 

 I can maybe understand the no mask mandate, but why on earth would you care if there are distancing measures?

Because distancing measures change the dynamics of the experience I pay for a cruise for. 
I don’t want to be mindful of walking down the promenade, or make an appointment for my turn to sit in a lounge and have a drink. If we want to pop into the casino after dinner and play some craps, I don’t want to put my name on a list and wait until enough people come out so I can go in. (Same goes for any of the shops on board)

Social distancing eliminates the spontaneity that I enjoy on a cruise, so I will not spend my money on that experience.

I will be vaccinated, and go as soon as I can.  Unvaccinated children wouldn't bother me.  The science shows children are very low probability transferrers of COVID-19.  I will also wear a mask full time even if not required.  It's just the sensible thing to do to protect my own health.

We get our 2nd dose of pfizer on march 25th.  Ready to sail on a fully vaccinated ship. 

Masks ok other than sun deck, social distancing sounds just fine to me as long as it means the elevators wont be packed. I hate that!

I will enjoy having tables in mdr and other restaurants spaced out as they were too close pre-covid.

Yes, of course.  DH and I get our 2nd vaccine on Apr. 3. Mask is okay too.  I am am hoping that we can keep the mask off when on the beach at Coco-Cay, but totally okay with the vaccination part, and are also okay with masks on board when necessary.

I am fully vaccinated. I will get on the first possible sailing Royal Caribbean operates that is available to me as a US Citizen who would have to travel to whatever international port that likely is to be, since the CDC is incapable of providing any sort of reasonable plan to reopen sailings from US ports right now. And I will stay aboard as long as I reasonably can to maximize the # nights/flight cost value. 🙂

DH, DD, and I are fully vaccinated and would love to sail as soon as possible on a fully vaccinated ship.

My reasoning for wanting everyone to be vaccinated is the chances are slim to none of a quarantine onboard with an early return to home port, IMO

Yes, ready to go.
 

 Really think the fully vaccinated ship is key to more ports of call opening up to cruisers.    And - hopefully - CDC giving their blessing to US-based ships.

Then you will never cruise again because Masks and Social Distancing will be on ships forever and ever amen. Masks for certain. Social distancing perhaps not because they can't afford that forever but a mask costs nothing to wear.  Anyone who refuses to wear one should be banned from every cruise line in the world after 1 warning.

 

 After all how else can you prevent being sued for catching Covid on a ship or protect against people lying about having the vaccine or the counter the fact the vaccine is not 100% effective? If the answer is in the terms of the contract I say don't you think have tried that already in these all inclusive places?

That will be the super spreader event. All them people messing about plus the crowded tenders there and back. I wouldn't be surprised if they closed it down.
