Yet another mailing....inside, a blurb about "health and safety from ship to shore" and the following comment..."Mandatory vaccination requirements for all guests and crew on all sailings through October 31, 2021"

And then???

Just noticed...on front page..."BOOK NOW--LIMITED CAPACITY" interesting stuff eh???

I have a feeling that November 1st will not be a magic “back to normal” date!

True, AuntPinkie, there are still too many questions about Aimee Treffiletti's order, as good as it may be seem from the US standpoint. At least she has real background and science to do this. But why is someone apparently so far down the food chain (Environmental Health Scientist, given the title of "head of the Maritime Unit for CDC's COVID-19 response within its Global Mitigation Task Force" for this announcement) being the one to go public?

What are the big bosses (political and CDC) that have been whining against us all along planning now?

We shall see, but I'm just excited that they're FINALLY letting us cruise!

vaccine, mask, reduced capacity, idc. Just let me get on a ship!
