Report Why did you volunteer for a Royal Caribbean test cruise? in Royal Caribbean Discussion Posted November 16 I signed up. I've been around covid this entire time. I've been tested a couple dozen times. So being subject to testing isn't an issue for me. I am extremely interested in participating in some of the drills. I want to see how they manage some of there bigger issues. I have a ton of procedures in place for my business but it could be extremely helpful to see it from a different perspective. Maybe i could learn something. I would have no anxiety being on the first cruise out even if they weren't doing a volunteer cruise. If my Sept sailing would have been a go I would have gone without a second thought. Sadly, I had just fallen in love with cruising, it would have been my "new" vacation trend. I had since moved on to a "covid resistant" form of vacationing that required a sizable investment so I probably wont be cruising much anymore (RVing if anyone was interested) . I need scheduled breaks from work to stay sane and I just wasn't going to get that with cruising for the time being.
