    This has nothing to do with cruising.  If you want to give your freedoms up then by all means move to Europe.

    @JeffB "I'm also an advocate for track and trace apps".
    Whether it be cruising or cruise lines, air travel domestically or internationally, visiting family or places unknown...you have a right to want to be tracked and traced all over the place. And apparently the technology is available to do just that.
    And I have a right to not want that, for travel or life in general. Enjoy your trip and your grandchildren.

    Its possible that because your room category is sold out that it will drive the price up on that specific category.  Supply and demand.  I got the same answer last night when I called to reprice and the price of the room was a little cheaper but we had 3 or 4 smaller discounts stacked so we actually had a cheaper rate in the end.  Sometimes the way they list pricing and word everything can be confusing.

    Coming out of Florida its some of the opposite reaction when I try and convince others to go ... why would I want to pay money to deal with more protocols (testing, masking, restricting access to areas of the ship) than we have in place on land.

    If it keeps "snow balling" , may want to think about taking a refund.  Minimize the bow wave of the FCC as things remain so uncertain.  One of the attributes I like about cruises is how (if you want), you can plan things to the greatest detail ahead of time, then just show up and your vacation just happens.  That concept is totally trashed with the ever-changing rules and added difficulty or discomfort associated with travel to get there.

    BC, I always paid for my cruises in semi-regular payments so that I had a reasonably small final payment. However, since the plague began I have stopped doing that entirely. I still have many bookings but little hope of taking any of them so the less money at risk, the better.  So far I have gotten all of the money back that I have paid for cancelled cruises but I know there is no guarantee that will be the case going forward.  Congratulations on sticking to your better judgment about [not] getting the jab !  It’s not an easy path.

    I don't see it ending anytime soon unfortunately.  I am just waiting it out to see what happens, I probably should stop paying on my cruises I have booked in case I need to cancel them.  I just can't justify a vaccination to board a ship.

    Until there are enough vaccinated people to get us to herd immunity, vaccine mandates will never go away.  One of the problems with people refusing vaccines is it allows mutations to keep recurring.  It's the "delta" variant now, but it will be another mutation in the near future.  In order for things to return to normal, people have to be willing to be vaccinated. Sadly in the U.S. it's become a political issue not a health one.  My daughter is an entertainer on SOTS and I am very pleased that everyone on the ship 12 & over has to be vaccinated.  I hope after the FDA approves the vaccine for 2-12 year olds, RCCL will extend the vaccine requirement.  I want to cruise often. Vaccination mandates are the only way to keep people alive and keep cruise worker's livelihoods.

    Disclaimer, Just my opinion & in NO WAY making a political statement either way. Answering @icf75 question
    My 2 cents, COVID is here & there is the bad & the ugly concerning it......but COVID is now a money generating catalyst.  Been to the hair salon anyone?  Services are down, down, down minimum everything, except the price. A hotel stay, clean your own room, empty your own garbage but the prices are still high if not higher. Flights? Every seat filled and expensive fares still climbing. Everywhere you look things COVID related are being sold like never before, there is money to be made and BIG PHARMA stands to continue to profit from this crazy sad situation. COVID testing is now a new industry, want it fast? My Doc in the Box down the street is available just pay $$$. Never have I witnessed so many vehicles in that lot. 
    So no, with the monies being generated as an off shoot of this situation I do not believe the 12+ vaxxed to sail will be dropped anytime soon. The cruise lines need to be careful to not only mitigate this situation but limit their liability exposure, we all know sadly the lawsuits that will come and the amount of monies awarded will be directly tethered to the "risks" you were exposed to on the ship (even if this never occurred on the ship) Making $$$, saving $$$, unemotionally with sad commentary I believe at the end of the day $$$ will keep these protocols in place everywhere, I personally expect the vax mandate to be in place as a purely numbers decision for a very long time, and then the fall back statement is "for your health" 
    Be well everyone!

    No, the real disappointment is the whole mask thing after that much money.
    I don't think they can survive long on these passenger numbers with what it costs to sail the ship.

    I couldn't agree more !  There was a time when they were saying that they were expanding Star Class to the "other" classes.  I really don't know why they never did that.  Even if they only had a few suites that feel into the category (maybe the RS and some of the 2-BR suites) it would be so nice.  They could get by with just 1 Genie.  I don't really see why they haven't ever done it.
