Notice most (if not all) people who complain about a policy are those that are affected by it? Humans are just selfish creatures. We will throw grandma under the bus if it means my (kid, un-vaccinated family member, dog, etc) gets to cruise.

 

I especially love when we don't get what we want, the first reaction is to say why someone else should suffer too....misery loves company

What makes the parent more selfish than the grandma cruising in your scenario? Should she stay home too? 🤷‍♂️

CHILDREN have died and are still dying from COVID-19...where have you been hiding. Heaven forbid it should ever be a child in your family and I bet you would sing a different song....so sad to have read your comment.

Honestly if you were willing to throw your grandmother under a bus for any reason, then you should all stay home and do family therapy. 😁

I have young kids, and I 100% agree with you.

 

If a line says I can't go until my kids are vaccinated, then I cant go until they are vaccinated. I'm not so entitled and selfish that I will throw a hissy fit about it.


this is what I say also.  If my kids can’t go then I won’t go.  It’s up to the cruise lines to make their policy and we have to live with it.  We don’t have to like what they decide either way.  If they exclude kids then I won’t go in October....If they allow kids there will be people who don’t want to go because they are scared.  There isn’t a once size fits all approach here...:people are going to get angry no matter what their policy is.

let’s not let facts get into the way of a good arguement here.

I applaud Royal for their decision to let children sail! A 60% vaccinated rate in US has Covid cases trending towards 0. Now factor in probability of something happening. I’ll let data and science speak for itself.

Not if she's vaccinated, which is what the whole debate is about.

Then why would the parent be “throwing her under a bus”. 🤷‍♂️🤣

I have an October cruise with our two kids (5 and 2) booked out of Galveston and one in December for just me and the wife out of Miami.  I am vaccinated...the wife is vaccinated...obviously the kids aren’t.  I don’t care if people are or aren’t.  It should be their decision to do what’s best for them and what they think/believe.  If companies want to say you must be vaccinated to use our product then so be it....it’s their company and they have to live with the repercussions either way.  What I have a problem with is government mandates and people pawning off their ideas on others. 

Fair enough...I never cruised with my kids when they were under 25....

 

We have 4 cabins (big family trip) booked on the Allure Sept 19 out of Port of Canaveral...all 8 vaxxed, I hope we don't have to live with mask mandates.

i don’t want to wear a mask either.  We took our 5 year old on a Hawaii cruise when he was 2.5. He did great on the cruise....the flight to Honolulu is a different story after the 6th hour.  
 

im only talking ***** here to give the other side of the argument view.  Seems a lot of the posters on here are on sides and that’s the only way they are willing to see things.

I believe those who are booked on carnival in July rcvd this in an email. Vaccine Exemption Communication

https://www.carnival.com/vaccine-exemption-update?utm_source=bg&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=060821&fbclid=IwAR2CFNg6nOkqGveacR4li7dyYtiqJg4q4hTQ0kWEzlTgBmnVoccKaw9MrZc                                

VACCINE EXEMPTION COMMUNICATION

The CDC’s guidelines for operating a highly-vaccinated cruise provide the ability to accommodate a small number of unvaccinated guests (children under 12 who cannot be vaccinated and exemptions as required by federal law) on restricted voyages, based on the total number of vaccinated guests on board. If you would like to be considered because a member of your traveling party is unvaccinated and meets this criteria, please complete the information below to receive a follow-up communication with the requirements to be considered and the specific protocols you will be required to observe.

I can imagine that plane ride.  🙂

 

We wanted to book Celebrity, but we have 4 under 28 going and thought Royal would be a better ship for everyone.  

 

re masks, etc...things are changing very fast..I just hope that cruising gets back started without any big issues.

I am very disappointed in RC decision in this matter. However, I'm not sailing out of Florida or Texas.

I hope NJ, Boston ports go by the rules.............

Royal is following the lead of Celebrity for sailings out of Florida. This means you don't have to show you are vaccinated, but if you don't it will be assumed you are unvaccinated and require additional tests and protocols.

If grandma is vaccinated she is perfectly fine to cruise.

That is my hope on the Sept sailings....

 

IMHO the Florida "rule" is to keep grocery stores, etc from not selling to folks who have not been vaccinated. That's my simple take on it anyways.   We shall see if it has any effect on cruises.  I for one, do not think it will.

Everyone (myself included) said they would never do it, age ineligible children excluded. 

Carnival has announced for July embarkation from Galveston, anyone not vaccinated (INCLUDING CHILDREN) will be denied boarding. 
Children also excluded from Alaska itineraries for the 2020 season. 

They are clowns! Watch them fail! 🤡

So if they can exclude kids then they should exclude anyone with health conditions or anyone over 50.  This is so stupid.  

Carnival has made a very wise decision, they are enabling their vaccinated to passengers to have a enjoyable cruise unencumbered by COVID protocols. When you're coming out of a pandemic that has killed 600K Americans you do the responsible thing and only cruise with people who have been vaccinated for a deadly virus, it's that simple. 

 

It's not stupid it's sensible.

The letter to guests was just sent out last night with a link to the exception submission form. Perhaps the website is not up to date yet or it may not be updated to reflect the letter sent to guests. However, the letter does make it pretty clear that they are looking to accommodate a small number of unvaccinated passengers.

This grandma was vaccinated in Jan/Feb with Moderna, and just tested positive for Covid yesterday. I am a pretty healthy 70 yo, with no underlying conditions and a normal BMI. Probably got a variant from daughter. Luckily, being vaxxed, I am having mild cold like symptoms (lost taste today). There are definitely no absolutes with this dang virus. 
 

Wonder if anybody here knows anyone else that has been a breakthrough case?

Sorry to hear you caught COVID. Hope you recover quick. 

 

Feel better.

No need for hope, it was officially announced earlier today. There is a blog that I don't think I can link to from here that has verified the new change.

Hawaii is set to go to ZERO restrictions once 70% are vaccinated.  I plan on enjoying my reduced restrictions on Adventure!  Thank you Bahamas for requiring vaccinations.

 

Now if Disney cruise line would have adult only sailings...one can dream.
