    This is somewhat of a concern I have for my October cruise on the Symphony. I’m not for big crowds, but there is something to be said for a ship full of happy cruisers with music playing and so on…
    Personally, I’d like it at least half full! This virus blows!!!

    It's all so exhausting...may shut off all interest in cruising and wait to see if any of this flip flopping ever ends.

    DunkelBierJay reacted to twangster in DeSantis/Florida wins prelim injunction over CDC   
    In Royal's case the judge is allowing them to follow their Healthy Sail Panel - made up of scientists and experts in the fields.  Royal also knows guests want safe cruises. 
    Royal is not going to throw away all protocols just because it might be able to soon.  No cruise line can afford a major outbreak.   
    I realize the CDC is convinced that cruise lines are poised to drop all protocols and cruise likes its 2019 tomorrow but I don't see that happening.  Once again, the CDC is wrong.

    I just realized something I think is really ironic.  A lot of us have been arguing as to whether these decisions were being made by scientists or politicians.  We have now moved on and resolved that question, the decisions are being made by politicians and judges,  I'm just not sure that is a good thing.

    DunkelBierJay got a reaction from Craig 01020 in Last Minute Cancellation - Rage Inducing   
    It's scenarios like these that led me to cancel everything several months ago, grit my teeth and wait it all out until cruising fully resumes. It relegated me to a couple of land vacations. It could be a LOT worse, and I am grateful for the opportunities I have and the memories of being on RC ships. Ultimately, it is helping me save some money for when the right situation comes along even if it pushes against my addiction to certainty. I will say that if Royal brokers an insurance transaction even if they aren't an agent, that they should go to bat on those refunds. They should insist n that with those carriers.

    This is just getting ridiculous... just say something! Sadly I will not be booking any cruise in the US until all of this is settled. I am going on a B2B out of Nassau because they seem to have their stuff together.
    Hopefully somebody gives us an answer! Especially after Texas today decided to join in with Florida.

    I am happy to announce that I will be joining the brand new Odyssey Of The Seas this week.
     
    I look forward for the opportunity to go back to work, and once again help create vacation memories for Royal Caribbean passengers (you guys)!
     
    Watch out for my upcoming videos on YouTube.

    Ever-changing COVID regulations on the entire cruise industry have been absolutely crazy since Day 1.
    Royal (like all of the other cruise companies) has been doing everything they can to interpret wacky CDC decisions which seem to change almost daily. While I get the frustration to have vacation plans altered at the last minute, the cruise industry is truly hamstrung by poorly-crafted rules enacted by various governments trying to navigate the pandemic.
    I don't blame anyone for wanting refunds in lieu of FCCs, but the good news is that the announcements this past week truly offer a light at the end of the tunnel.
    Happy sailing to everyone! ?

    Some perspective, I live in Australia and can't legally leave the country; at least you guys in the US can fly out of the country. You can go to the Carribean, Europe and beyond. I have had several cruises cancelled, one was cancelled 22 days from departure date out of Japan. Royal didn't create Covid and I believe they are doing their best.  
    I have a TA friend, and it is not just RCG, all lines have been cancelling close to sailing dates; poor lady spends her day organising credits and refunds for no income
    I can understand the frustration with the uncertainty as I have several cruises booked and it is impossible to plan your work, life, flights, etc with all the uncertainty. however it looks like positive change is rapidly happening and each day I read about more positive information

    I’m vaccinated and don’t give a flip what others do. In theory, I should be safe from possible exposure to an un vaccinated individual. I have no worries about being around the unvaccinated.  Im good with that. Time to live life again and get my cruise on!!!

    So when the vaccine was being required, people who agreed with this said to those who didn't "Then you don't have to cruise"  
    Well , I guess now the shoe is on the other foot now!
