Vaccine Passports Required for FL Cruises

Hey gang,

I’m scheduled to set sale on December 27th, 21’ out of Miami on Norwegian. As of this moment, Norwegian’s guidelines state you must show proof of full Vaccination and test Negative prior to boarding.

it was my understanding that Governor Desantis signed an executive order saying the cruise lines could not lawfully mandate Vaccine Passports. Has anybody had to deal with this yet and can you tell me for certain if the VPs are required when he has outlawed them for the cruise lines in FL?

You ain't payin attenshun is you? Feederal judge tol ol Desantis to pound sand a month ago...who knows whuts next?

Desantis had is order overturned by the courts.

The cruise lines do not have to abide by his decree.

They are trying to do what ois best for their company, crew and passengers.

As I understand it; it is still in the courts because of appeals. I suppose you could test your therory, but don't be surprised if you are denied boarding.Surprised

Actually, and in all's the latest from the crackpot....course, at the rate the thing is spreading, by december, there may not be many left to object.....

Cruise lines won't see fines. Some of the ports (non-US) required vaccinations as a condition of entry. Lines are ensuring compliance with a non-US requirement. So not a US requirement but a foreign requirement being satisfied.

In New Zealand we dont have a passport just a stupid hand written little card with our name and date of vaccine on it. So not even professional or offical looking so not sure how we will travel when it becomes time!

The USA has equally unproffessional cards. They (whoever they are) don't make life easy.

In Canada we are getting into vaccine passports. Will passports make travel easier remains to be seen? Not all countries will accept the same guidelines.

This Covid is reeking havoc in a variety of ways so we are staying put travel wise til some form of certainty, in whatever format, becomes a reality. How long will this take? Stay tuned as policies continues to evolve.

Different regions of Canada are doing it different ... imagine that. Example the province of Ontario will start using vaccination passports for any dining, entertainment or other types of events ... even though they have not yet issued a vaccination passport. At the same time the province issued their notice the feds (gearing up for their election) are all promising a vaccination passport or at least funding for one.

Who knows ... programs .. programs .. need a program ..

Not sure what folks mean by "passport"...if you mean an official gov't issued bar coded document thats verifiable by computer scan back to the FED, we'll never live long enough to see it...not in the USA...folks here would never stand for it....infringing on their rights it is, mebbe the printer that printed your "stupid hand written little card..." etc etc, is the same guy who printed ours....
