  1. According to the article the FDA grants approval based on the outcomes of the trials. These trials won’t end for about 2 more years. Hopefully by then this dang virus will be well under control
  2. What about their headquarters and those who work there? Being based in Miami, wouldn’t they be required to follow federal law for those employees? I realize those employees have nothing to do with ships but interesting that those working out of Miami are under our federal labor laws (I assume) while the ship based operations fall under Liberia law?
  3. I read this as any employer cannot require the vaccine. Once it’s approved, an employer can require it but not under EUA. American Queen Steamboat line and their other line is requiring it as of July 1 and they’re an American company.
  4. According to this article, a vaccine that has not been approved cannot be required by law. Currently the Covid vaccines are under EUA: Emergency Use Authorization. Interesting...... https://www.statnews.com/2021/02/23/federal-law-prohibits-employers-and-others-from-requiring-vaccination-with-a-covid-19-vaccine-distributed-under-an-eua/
  5. Confusion for sure! I know my may symphony will be cancelled so now looking at moving my deposit to October. We have odyssey in October out of Rome, but that’s iffy so moving symphony to October gives us a backup plan. We’d move odyssey to 2022. Even if she sails, that’s a huge trip to not be able to explore on our own. We’d cancel before final. My head hurts lol
  6. Contact the senators and representatives in the major port states. Florida and Texas are the 2 I’d start with and add in Alaska as their economy is about to get a second hit with no cruises. In the end, it may be worthless.
  7. Here’s the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/itpvirusupdates/?ref=share
  8. Well if RC follows suit, that’ll knock out my May 29 Symphony. Just hurry as my final payment is looming in the near future and I want to save @Sharlathe trouble of applying my FCC.
  9. Just to add: I joined an Italy Covid 19 travel group on Facebook as we are booked on Odyssey in October. From what the residents in Italy are posting, there may not be any cruising/tourism with foreigners. Apparently they are still in a bad way. Everything closes at 6pm. No restaurants are open at night. Vaccination is expected to take 8-12 months. If you want the link to the Facebook group let me know and I’ll post. So far it’s had the best information regarding their current situation.
  10. Thanks. Still not showing up for any of my 3 cruises.
  11. For a few days now there is nothing available in the “Internet + more” in the cruise planner. Any guesses why? Could internet end up being included/complimentary because of the need to use your phone on the ship? Just thought we needed another topic to make guesses! Lol
  12. I had heard since neither Explorer or Allure (who also was at PC this week and had containers loaded) didn’t get their “makeover,” that they would receiving some changes at sea. I’m guessing it’s stuff in response to Covid changes. Ventilation, food service, barriers etc.
  13. I recently booked us on a 7 night Southbound on Radiance for May 27, 2022. Hoping for fewer kids lol. Highly, highly suggest watching @twangster live blogs. I spent the better part of a Saturday afternoon reading the Southbound blog. The train from Anchorage to Seward (port) looked so amazing and got us so excited for this trip. We will arrive a few days early to go to Denali. If you’re on Facebook, there’s a Royal Caribbean Alaska group that has some good tips too. I also suggest going on YouTube and search ship tours. I was kind of ho hum about going on radiance
  14. When this happened to us, they refunded my deposit saying it was taxes and fees. FCC was re-issued.
  15. Well they only had 1 ship in the Med anyways. I do like that they mention Mardi Gras starting May 29. I’ve got Symphony on May 29. I’m not very hopeful though. Thinking my October Odyssey in the Med isn’t going to happen either.
