Way outdated article. The position of the EEOC was clarified in May and employers and universities are already mandating vaccines. I said in my earlier post that challenges were likely. But that DOES NOT mean that EUA vaccine mandates are currently illegal.  What will the complainers say when full authorization is given by the Fall and the EUA “excuse” goes away?  Lol!

Oh yeah....waaay outdated.  Feb 23, 2021.  Those of us who believe that this "vaccine" is extremely dangerous will not care whether the FDA grants full authority or not.  It will not change our minds.

Oh no kidding!  What is the saying? “Ignorance is bliss”?

I would only cruise on cruiselines that require 100% vaccination.  If RCL changes the requirement (about requiring 100%), I won't cruise RCL.
Cruiselines have a choice, cruisers also have choices.

I am vaccinated and more than comfortable going on a ship that has unvaccinated people on it.

And that is truly the point, aren't we all comfortable going around in public right now with unvaccinated?  It's the same in every location, why is it different on a ship.  If our cruise is cut short because somebody got sick because they were too uncivic minded or silly to get protected, I will just enjoy the ride back and another FCC.  Mox nix.

No cruises for you, there are either 95% or who the heck cares options. There is no 100% option.  I mean unless they are going to start making kids not allowed to cruise.  I might like that.... reduced FlowRider lines.  I am on your side.... let’s make it happen!!!  🤣

I wonder how many people who currently are opposed to MRNA technology in the covid vaccine will maintain that feeling if the same technology is used to fight cancer and that is the best course of action recommended by medical professionals for the treatment of themself or a loved one. “Nah.  Too new.  That technology is only 50 years old.”

 But, haven’t you also posted on multiple

occasions that you absolute will not wear a mask onboard?

NCL requires 100%.  I have a choice.  Not going on RCL cruises.

That is already a reality.  How many drugs advertised on TV with umpteen adverse reactions that have to be mentioned do millions who need them to survive a myriad of diseases already take on a daily basis, I take 3 of them!  None of them complain about these adverse reactions because they need them.  And yet people complain about Covid vax because a handful of people have adverse reactions or ended up with Covid after vaxxing.  Which by the way can be explained by several scenarios.  Heck, my sister n law is poisoning herself weekly by chemo therapy for her uterine cancer.  What's her alternative?  That's life in 2021.

What if no cruise line ends up requiring that?

Hotels have elevators too, should they be only for vaccinated people?  How about office buildings and elevators?  

 

I don’t know about you, I am only in close proximity when I attend a show in the theatre.  I don’t ever lay out by the pool, but even there according to the CDC you would be considered outdoors, not in a confined space.

 

So many false or misleading statements for such a short post.

Why are you talking about office buildings when this post was about cruise ships?  However, high rise buildings have larger elevators, that aren't nearly as busy as ships and many have capacity limits currently.  I wasn't mixing indoor and outdoor proximity examples like pools of where you can social distance, as my references were all limited to indoor, confined spaces. But apparently you feel if you throw enough nonsequiter details against the wall, at least one of them might stick.

 

Nothing false about anything I said, but that's why I rarely engage on this forum on non cruise-related topics.

I don't have to cruise.  But then if one day Covid is squashed and it's no longer a concern, it won't be just cruising but many others things can return to normal. 

 

In the near future, my choice is to go only on cruises requiring 100% vaccination.  It's not just me.  Allowing risks onto the ship, allowing possible spreads from ports onto ship then onto ports, and possibly having outbreaks on ship to require quarantine, restrictions, change of itinerary, etc., is not the type of cruising risk I need to take.  I have choices.

So no children under 12, correct?

Since you believe it changes your DNA, you should look at taking the vaccine as an opportunity

I can tell you. Zero.  When it comes to self-interest they will all be lining up around the corner. 😉

I don't have an upcoming RC cruise . Our only booked cruise is with Princess and that's not till the end of February . IF we had an Royal cruise in the next few months, we would cancel . If Princess changes their policy we will wait and see what the world is like before cancelling . We will also cancel if the cruise won't be mostly "normal" because of Covid protocols . Wondering if Royal cruises will be more restrictive because of their change of policy .

There seems to be a general theme that those who want to quote numbers about how safe one will be once vaccinated are the same ones who refuse to believe the numbers about how minimal the vaccine side affects are.

The most information on RCI not requiring vaccinations for cruises comes from a Miami Herald article that has been picked up by much of the media.  

 

I still think that RCI's vaccination policy is still being tweaked.  The website still states 95% vaccinated.  I think we will see more coming out from the company.  I don't think the company wants to have an outbreak that would be blown out of proportion by the media.  I think that would really hurt RCI's bottom line and reputation.

Hell, I’m trying* to cancel my NCL cruise after RC’s announcement. I no longer trust the mass market industry to enforce vaccinations. I expect the other big names to fold. And if that happens THIS SOON, while the pandemic is still raging in other parts of the world, I am done with the industry.

 

*”trying” because my booking on NCL is currently broken in such a way that it can’t be cancelled, after they did a ship swap. 8-9 days to go before I can’t get a refund. Exciting times.

We are going on Viking Oceans around Iceland July.  No kids, no unvaxed passengers. We can only take their shore excursions, wearing a location monitor is required and daily testing - we don’t know yet about mask wearing - but it all sounds good to me. Yet, you wouldn’t believe all the moaners on that forum! No one is forcing them to follow Vikings rules - guess they should switch over to Royal.  😙

I’m really not trying to be … overly aggressive here, but I’ve seen this statement a number of times, and I don’t understand how people don’t know how to “source” info anymore, but the Miami Herald is a respected newspaper that’s been around for about a thousand years, and all they did was print RC’s *own press release*.


https://www.miamiherald.com/news/business/tourism-cruises/article251909713.html

 

“Strongly recommend” is nowhere near “required”. I’m sure people are also strongly recommended not to get fake service dog papers, and we know how that goes.
