    The reasonable solution is to fly to Nassau a week early to get lower flight prices

    You booked through Air2Sea, so you're not left out in the cold should a delay occur, but I personally would not book that time.
    Not trying to scare you or anything, because I'm sure others will be on that flight too.
    Personally, if I was going to fly same day of the cruise, I'd pick something much earlier in the day.

    Nothing has been confirmed yet. I'll post something if/when it does, but I want to caution everyone that this is still firmly a rumor at the moment.

    Matt got a reaction from Josh C in New CDC updates to CSO?   
    Agreed. By definition, it's progress. And it's encouraging they have been making many updates over the last ~2 weeks.
    However...
    There are still glaring discrepancies in the guidelines that don't match what the rest of the country is doing. Nevermind the fact no other company or industry needs CDC approval to re-open/operate due to Covid-19.
    My hope is this "trend" of updates continues to a point where we get reasonable rules that match up with other changes we are seeing in CDC guidelines.

    Change.. sometimes it's good.. sometimes it's bad. I get both sides.. and eventually, everything will be digitalized, including pop up ads on the app for all those sales. I do hope they'll have paper copies at Guest Services. I mean, how else will @Mattkeep updated cruise compasses on the website?? 😄

    Matt got a reaction from Zambia-Zaire in Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis says he isn’t going to relax the Covid test requirement for cruises   
    One thing cruise ships have going for them that MLB teams don't is multi-tiered approach.
    Yankees rely only on vaccines. Based on what I've seen on TV, mask use is a joke among staff/players.
    Cruise ships will have testing of every single person coming onboard, contact tracing, etc.
    So I don't believe what MLB is seeing will be an apples-to-apples with cruises.
    Something that the cruise industry has been telling the CDC, and the CDC has kind of relented on, is cruises cannot be a zero risk scenario. So yes, cases on a ship should be met with quarantine, treatment, contact tracing, and proper care.  But as they show in the entertainment industry, "the show must go on".

    Matt reacted to JeffB in State of Florida Sues CDC Over Cruise Shut Down   
    In case anyone is wondering, Judge Merryday has not yet ruled on FL's law suit v. HHS/CDC. The last listing on the docket for this case was yesterday.
    Because FL requested an expedited (emergency) hearing, it would not be unusual for a ruling to come this weekend.
    I'll be watching.
