Just got an email from them.....listing ships being put back into service, from which ports and so on....operative part was they intend to continue the existing "protocols" (mask, proof of vaccinations, that 48 hrs test requirement etc etc) until the end of FEB 22.....(unless they change it....quick, check the moon phase...)

Was hoping they would start changing things in the new year.. and things could still possibly change, but I guess it's still a wait-and-see kind of deal.

Since we sail in early March, I would love to see them hold to that timeline (or even accelerate the phaseout). Not going to hold my breath though. Things could change a dozen times between now and then.

Also, they can state all they want how they'll adjust their protocols by such-and-such a date, but if the CDC says otherwise............................ well, you know.

So we will be sailing Carnivl October 30th then again Feb. 26th. I should have the current protocols down by then. Just wen through the easist set of protocols, but that doesn't account for the anticipation while waiting the results.

WELCOME HOME!!!! yeh we're doing CCL 11/27 and 2/26....lets hope they release ALL the MODERNA and J&J boosters by then. It'd be to EVERYBODY'S BENEFIT!!!!!

Aunt Pinkie We will be on the same cruise as you in October on the carnival horizon going to the southern Caribbean. I would love to meet you!! Linda

That would be wonderful. We will have to be sure to set up a place once in on board! At least once during the cruise I will be wearing this T-shirt.


Ok great I will definitely be looking out for that shirt!!
