Probably some BS  juridiction thing,  to make it legal has to be done on land and not on the water............

Or it could be as simple as the folks administering the shot want the customers on land in case of a serious negative reaction.

Virtually every location administering the COVID shot have set aside a rest location and recommend waiting at least 15 minutes to see if there are any adverse reactions.

As others have said, I suspect she is rushing to get crew vaccinated in fl do their 2 week wait then start a test cruise in june.

Not sure those that tested positive for covid can get vaccinated.  They tell everyone to wait 90 days after having covid.  So the 4 or 5 crew members that may or may not have been dropped off in spain may not be able to get vaccinated and work for a couple of months.

 

Agree, thought read somewhere was a plan to drop off the Covid+ Crew

Odyssey just turned around and going west now instead of east???  Huhhh???

Headed to Gibraltar apparently!

Found this on vessel finder: 

The current position of ODYSSEY OF THE SEAS is at West Mediterranean (coordinates 36.07239 N / 5.24277 W) reported 0 min ago by AIS. The vessel is en route to GIBRALTAR OPL, sailing at a speed of 1.1 knots and expected to arrive there on May 26, 11:00.

Yes but it's going in the opposite direction now or maybe making a big loop to arrive there tomorrow?  It was much closer to Gibraltar a while back.

What other safety measures should they abandon to speed the return to the US? Maybe turn off radar so they don’t have to worry about pesky traffic in their path 🤔

Wow, your nose is missing,,,,,,,,,,

Your original comment was ‘stop testing until they arrive in the US and begin the vax regime.’ . 
 

So you advocate letting Covid run through the ship unchecked. I never fail to be amazed at how we can be well over 12 months into this and we still have have people who don’t take this seriously. 
 

I’m done here. Enjoy your next cruise. 

Sure....and we are all amazed at how much of the sky has fallen, dang, please hold your nose and breath for a complete count of 10 minutes.

Please, there is no agreed-upon science, never mind any that is set in stone, on this virus.  There've been more flip-flops by the "experts" than at South Beach on nice weekend.  They've embarrassed themselves terribly and have lost tremendous respect which will impact future compliance.  

 

Seriously, never ever got a good answer sourced to the experts on ~

 

~ why did people on one side of a street in one state, shopping and eating at restaurants, not get added implications from the virus than those on the other side of the street in a different state that were totally locked down?  In fact, better (less) implications?

 

~ why can athletes (high school, college, professional) play competitively on the court, field or ice without masks (breathing, drooling, coughing) but must wear a mask when returning to the bench, dugout or sideline?

 

~ why did many states that did not lock down, that focused on those at risk of death or severe illness, fair so much comparatively better than those that did?

 

~ why is there a Covid 19 risk if a 7th person is added to your dinner table?

 

~ why is there a Covid 19 risk dinning at or after 9:30PM but not before?

 

~ why is there a Covid 19 risk to fly, to travel to another state, to have you hair done, to dine out with friends or during holidays, for everyone "except those that are restricting the same such?"

 

~ why is there a Covid 19 risk for our Congressional representatives when in Chambers and on-camera but not before or after such (when such are disposed of)?

 

~ and the best, or worst, as to why we don't trust the "experts' science," why is there no risk to rally, protest for one cause, but the reason other causes can't parade or even hold worship services?

 

 

Because Common Sense is not taught in schools these days.......😉

that's what someone else said they were dropping them off at a hospital in Spain, but they are asymptomatic so who really knows whether or not they dropped them off.

maybe they are getting supplies or more crew before they do the TA crossing?

^That.

 

And, suppose, one of the crew members, had a serious negative reaction, necessitating hospitalization. From Indonesia, which Israel doesn't have diplomatic relations with. What then???

Just took a screen shot of Odyssey's current position and it looks like it has turned around and going away from Gibraltar.  Is this normal?

It looks like they aren't sure of what the US is signaling them so they are playing it safe and are going to "circle back?"😉

Not sure what they're doing but it doesn't look like they're in any hurry to get to Florida.
