The protocols and procedures are working as planned!Big Smile

Ho-hum......................and thats EXACTLY what they're working towards! Cruise on!

Doesn't seem it was a good idea to restart cruising from the U.S. so soon.

Should have waited until 2022.

Ow, well...

Waited for what?? given that about 50% of the population isn't vaccinated, and probably never will be...given that it looks more and more like there's going to be a need for a booster, which IMHO even less people will sign up for....given that they claim the passenger who got it was vaccinated (I'm still waiting for an explanation of just how they verified that)...given that no rational person could possibly expect there to be NO cases on cruises ships...probably forever......and finally given that they could wait till 2022 or their bankruptcy, whichever comes first.............I'm ready to cruise..................

Well said Yankee47 .. started to type a response myself but decided to get off my soapbox before I rant ...

So here's my question, if the passenger was on the Millennium, why did they have a picture of the Edge in the article?

At least it was the right cruise line. I've seen articles about RCCL with pictures of CCL and visa versa.Big Smile

Because they're stupid, and don't pay attention...or think WE are, and don't pay attention.

There is a simpler reason for the picture 'mix up', the majority of US news "reporters" are nothing more than re-posters of what they heard and they have to hurry up and grab stock footage that resembles what their story is about so they can be first.

No analysis, no vetting, if the front page story is wrong, print a retraction on page 14 no matter who or what is hurt.

As far as waiting for the Covid to die down before resuming cruising, Yankee is right. Covid has been and will be with us for many years. The current main variant, 19 or the Wuhan variant, just happens to be a better anti people design that requires vaccinations and even that will only help prevent your symptoms from making you sick or killing you as it mutates. Do we stop the world until all are vaccinated or get sick or continue on with precautions? Most of us live in and depend on a living chain, break/close part of the chain, the rest starts withering (I work retail and see that now from the last year).
