Pinnacle (7/7)



  1. https://www.cruisehive.com/royal-caribbean-releases-construction-update-on-icon-of-the-seas/58680?fbclid=IwAR1WFQO16rPpjkuulZ-xS2EdsB_vME2Ye_zkuu7jl0dL0-jXUv0Ij8JmSw8
  2. But if you've paid for the internet package, you don't need to get the onboard messaging package. You can just use WhatsApp or any other web based messaging tool
  3. Actually, we do, via the Healthy Sail Panel https://www.royalcaribbean.com/content/dam/royal/resources/pdf/healthy-sail-panel-full-recommendations.pdf
  4. They're misquoting their own CSO. That was only a requirement if a never-actually-disclosed threshold of cases were found.
  5. FDA just recommended EUA, despite a lot of misgivings about unintended consequences
  6. I wouldn't cancel because of that. But due to such low incidence of covid cases on ships, adding a new protocol without getting rid of others (specifically, masks) sure would damper the experience.
  7. It's a completely different vial with different color coding to prevent mix ups between the adult dose.
  8. Since it's a new dosage of vaccine, it's it even feasible for vaccines to be available next week (or even in a month)? It was easy for the 12-16 since they just pulled from the existing stock.
  9. The CDC has no explicit vaccine requirement for cruise ships, oddly enough.
  10. I think you'll see a lot more hesitation for parents to get their 5-11 yr old vaccinated than getting themselves vaccinated. It'll be interesting to see how that all plays out if RC mandates a vaccine for that age group, especially if there's still a mask mandate.
  11. You know this is all scripted with the cruise lines as a way around the Florida vaccine passport law. Pretty slick actually
  12. Doesn't look like the CDC changed anything. They didn't change the testing windows or criteria. I want to know what difference another 75 days makes, other than to slap the face of the cruise lines one more time during the holiday season.
