CCL will probably follow suit soon. Probably just as well. I'm sure none of the lines want to take the chance of having one of their ships dubbed the "SS Omicron" in the press.

CCL policy has been masks while inside, mostly enforced in the eating areas and "show venues". Very lax in the bars. Prbably just more enforcement than in the past. Frustrating!Crying

Didn't find CCL's policy too onerous....considering the alternative(s)....

It is the state of the new world. Expect more changes if things worsen.

We’ll said!!!

Maybe Omicron figured out the mask thing and decided to come in through our ears.

No problem. They've got that covered...............literally.

I understand why this is happening. I even agree with it (to a point). It's just sad that it appears like we're heading backwards. Hopefully this is only temporary and the restrictions are eased after next month.

Want a glimpse of the cruise lines worst nightmare. It would be seeing something like this in cartoon form on the editorial page of a major news publication.

I'm sorry if you find this insensitive. It's just we all know what happened the last time the media trained their intense spotlights on the cruise industry. They've pretty much left them alone since the restart, but one major outbreak or (God forbid) an emergency evacuation or death due to Covid and...... well, we can just guess where that'll lead.

So OK, if tighter mask policies are still in place when we sail in March........ so be it.

Canadian gov has issued a travel advisory advising not to travel abroad. Because of that some insurance companies have declared that if you leave the country your policy is void. I am watching and hoping this does not mess up our cruise for the end of January.
