When will you cruise next?

Curious how many people have future cruises booked? If so, when is your sailing date, and are you planning to go if cruises resume as currently scheduled (Sept/Oct 2020)?

We canceled our October cruises yesterday (before the latest news), so our next scheduled cruise is on the Sky Princess in January.

No time in the near future. Waiting to see what changes the industry makes first. I am hoping that they end the era of building Mega Ships carrying 6,000 + people. This has always been questioned about sanitary conditions and safety even before the coronavirus. There is no way I want to ever sail again with that many people. I also think the days of the self service buffets are over forever. I have also read about the possibility of discouraging older adults and people with pre existing medical conditions to sail without medical clearance. So sad but true. To the cruise industry, please add a few new smaller vessels to your existing fleets. From a veteran cruiser with love.

We are booked for Feb 2021. I am hopeful that we can go. Flights and insurance may be the issue, but I hope by then things will have calmed down. If the experience is not what it was, then we may re-look at cruising, However, until then and we cruise and return, I will hold judgement on the cruise lines.

Still have an Edge cruise on the books for Nov 2020.

Here's a cruise friendly story: https://www.foxnews.com/travel/health-expert-cruise-ship-safer-travel-coronavirus

August 2021 for a B2B2B but.........

Thanks for that...didn't know that NCL and RCL are doing "something" jointly...interesting...what I DO STRONGLY suggest is that readers "drill down" into the article to actually read the new guidelines, if adopted for cruising in the EU.....couple of clicks get you down to a pdf file containing the good stuff...not all of it applies to joe passenger, but alot of it does. especially of interest to me is sec 4.2 concerning geezers and pre-existing conditions. read it slowly...mebbe more than once. No where does it say that you MUST visit your MD for a hall pass....Now we don't have the final version blessed by the CDC...but rumors and misinterpretation of what people thought they heard or read elsewhere just causes more confusion...there's an old term for it in the military,,I'm sure at least some of you know it exactly...,heheheheh...

We’re booked with Celebrity for November 2020, Holland America for February 2021, Viking Ocean/River B2B for November 2021 and we’re looking forward to some great deals to book a few more as soon as cruising starts up again. We’ll be cruising as soon as they’re open for business! Love

If you meant my comment, longtime readers know I'm in my 70's and the wife is a breast cancer survivor with other pre=existing conditi0ons. What the military (in which I spent entirely too many years), taught me is to ignore peeps who don't/can't read but rush off to "latrine building conclusions" based on nothing...

No offense. I didn't mean anything to offend anyone. I actually received the info about the possibility of having to show medical clearance directly from Royal Caribbean when I was inquiring about future cruises and considering the needs of elderly family members that are interested in taking a cruise. I was told by the RCCL agent that there is a strong possibility that medical clearance forms may start to be required for passengers sailing with medical issues in any age group. I was also told of probable temperature checks for all passengers boarding and that there maybe a repeated check during the cruise depending on how many days you are sailing. These proposed measures are not definite but are strongly being considered. They are considering implementing these practices to protect the passengers and well as the cruise line. It may sound discriminatory but I can understand the cruise industry taking this position due to the issues related to the Coronavirus pandemic and events that unfortunately happened to some passengers on various cruise lines.

I would not have a problem adhering to this if it is implemented for the safety of myself and fellow passengers. Happy Sailing on your planned cruises and be safe.
