    Marlena got a reaction from DJsMrs in Thoughts on not allowing kids under 18   
    I have wondered this as well. I have a 5 year old and this will crush me immensely.  But my thought on it is IF they do this, they will have to completely reimburse people and not offer FCC. They are the ones telling you that you can't go. At least I know I would be demanding it.

    Marlena got a reaction from Dan Curtis in First Large Cruise Line to Require Passenger Vaccination   
    And as kids aren't able to be vaccinated does that mean no family cruises? I feel like if royal and carnival etc make vaccination requirements, they would have to make exceptions for kids. Or offer full refunds instead of FCC.  I know if I am told my daughter can't sail I will not accept FCC. All of this being hypothetical of course.

    The Escape Room.  I've never done an activity that made me feel so incredibly stupid in my life.

    Marlena reacted to Curt From Canada in With the new Vaccine information when it will be possible to cruise normally   
    I am certain $$$$ come into play somehow, but aseptically filling vials is a very difficult thing to do at scale.  The companies who do it have extremely expensive equipment plus a dedicated highly trained and skillful workforce (taking years, sometime decades, to develop).  Wide "distribution" of the formula will not help produce more vials of vaccine available quickly.
    The good news is the number of available dosages is not the bottleneck.  How "fast can we jab" is dictated by the logistics of getting the vaccines to where they are required (we seem to have this figured out), and then having enough trained people to administer them (this is definitely the bottleneck currently).
    More good news ... soon (within a month or two) we will have shifted those courageous health care professionals from saving us to injecting us ( I guess that saves us too 😉).  I am certain they will be extremely happy to make that change in their daily routine.
    To all the health care professionals out there, I do not say it nearly enough, you are very much appreciated.  It is impossible for anyone to not notice your dedication and bravery.  We are forever in your debt.

    I'm going to preface this by saying this is a very naive comment and I definitely know the answer is $$$$. But I can't help by think that considering this is a world wide pandemic and people are dying everywhere...shouldn't Pfizer etc give labs around the world the formula and pump it out like crazy. If it was a cure for something small I can understand wanting to make it a monopoly. But considering it could get the world back on track to normalcy im sad it doesn't work like that...

    Marlena got a reaction from Ogilthorpe in Face masks at sea.   
    As many others I wear a mask every day for work ( anesthesia) so I am used to it. However I can't say I enjoy wearing one anywhere beside work but I obviously do it. I would wear it to dinner or a show etc but its a hard no wearing it outside on the sundeck. Does not seem like vacation to have to do that.

    Marlena got a reaction from crisgold52 in Quarantine for 14 days?   
    We also live in Canada so would have to quarantine as well. My employeer says it has to be " vacation time" and not just a leave of absence.  So we would have to take 3 weeks vacation for the cruise. AND it can be denied by our employer if they don't have the staff, which in healthcare is always.

    I think 3 months ago I would have been a very excited lets go attitude towards cruising. But as numbers are now skyrocketing I dont feel like it's a good idea RIGHT NOW. That being said I still can't wait to go but present situation is kind of grim looking.
