I'm curious about the make up of passengers on test cruises. Will they be vaccinated or not? Will the sample include people who previously were infected (yes)? If you weigh passenger population toward those with immunity (who were vaccinated or naturally protected through previous infection), then the test cruise will yield stellar results. If you manifest passengers who are not immunized, you can assess how well health protocols actually prevent disease migration through a ship board population. Will be interesting how test cruises accept passengers. RCL already committed to at least immunizing crew - that seems reasonable.

These seem to be the old guidelines, but I bet they'll revisit them, given the new guidance for those of us that are vaccinated that was given today.

Still a work in progress. Til the vaccine gets global the new normal will slowly evolve.
