    Dan Curtis reacted to Marlena 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.

    Dan Curtis reacted to krhardy in Rethinking my plans   
    Hey y'all 🙂
    My husband and I cruised with our kids quite often when they were small. All of us absolutely loved it and looked forward to every cruise. 
    I have been saying for years that I couldn't wait until my grandkids were old enough so I could take them on a cruise. Now I'm rethinking this.....today marks 12 days that we have had all 3 of them (ages 6, 3, and 11 months) while my son and daughter in law have been packing, moving, and unpacking. I'm whooped! These little people do not operate on my schedule. Trying to keep them all fed (holy cow can they eat!), keep up with the kindergarten homeschool (and I homeschooled all 3 of my kids through high school graduation, so I'm no stranger to that either), AND work is about to do me in. Let's not talk about the state of my house.....
    Fellow grandparents out there please reassure me that I won't die if I take them on a cruise without their parents 🤣

    We was a week before you all, we was out of San Juan, I agree, so hard to believe, we thought by now we would have been on two more, it’s just hard to imagine, something so many of us truly love, just can’t cruise, we’re not getting any younger, I hope we can get sailing soon, we have canceled two now, hoping for November, we just need 14 more days to diamond plus, we’ll keep trying.

    Agree with this. The mask police wandering around the ship sounds like a ball, as well as the elevator police. Sounds like a prison.

    We just canceled yet again, not wearing a mask in 90 degree weather on top deck, hate to say it, after 20 cruises, we might have to find a new favorite vacation. I have the first shot, if the shots are not good enough, we’re holding off.

    Masks are too much.  Reserving pool time, no freedom in ports and the loss of everything that made cruising fun is too much. This would not be a vacation.  How would you meet people, make new friends and get to know the crew?  Deck parties?  Relaxing and doing whatever feels right at the moment whether it is lounging on the deck or jumping in the pool are all part of the fun of a cruise.  Aside from being at sea, what does the type of cruising they are talking about benefit the passenger?  We have future cruise credits and I hope the extend them until they can offer normal cruise experiences.  I would not go on one with endless restrictions.

    Cruising is expensive, I simply cannot justify the expense with any restrictions. We will not cruise again until there are no restrictions and that may be a long time if ever... as much as it pains me to say that.

    We wont be cruising if that's required. It will be back to land vacations for us if that happens. I am sure for the first little while they may require masks but am hoping that it wont be a permanent requirement. 
     
    Not my idea of a fun time.....ever.

    I can live with the wearing of masks inside the ship, but as others have said, sitting in 90 degree heat on an open deck, not so sure.

    Dan Curtis reacted to loki007 in First Cruise line to mandate vaccination   
    Agree...we are avid cruisers and have decided not to cruise until we do not have to follow any social distancing, masking, testing requirements. I think that is probably not going to be until mid to late 2022. We just got back from an all inclusive resort in Mexico and it was fantastic. No testing to get into the country, the resort was operating at 50% capacity, very clean and safe. When hanging out by the pool no need to mask (there were tons of open chairs due to low capacity). Highly recommend this as an alternative. We never left the resort and felt safer there than in the US.

    I want  to start collecting magnets or ornaments or something of the like for each new ship...but honestly they never quite scream to me when I'm on board.
    BUT...I do always buy photos and somehow end up always buying something from the "street" sales.
