    alamode123 got a reaction from mdgwow in What's your cruise thing?   
    Putting myself first, and not feeling guilty about it.

    I'm a widowed dad of 3 kids. My wife passed away when our twin girls were 3 and our son was 6. Now that the girls are 18 and my son is 21 I can cruise solo and not feel bad about not spending every second and every dollar on them.

    They are great kids, but I need my "me" time.

    alamode123 got a reaction from DunwoodyDad in CDC Guidance for US cruises- 98% Crew, 95% Pax vaccinated. Are you OK with that?   
    Its very easy to criticize scientists when you have no idea what they di day to day  Without scientists there wouldn't be vaccines in the first place.
    As for the CDC, remember there was a recent change in US government, and the previous administration stifled their ability to regulate many industries properly. We dont know how much of the higher ups in the CDC are new. or leftover from the previous administration, which appear to have drastically different priorities. 
    Im not saying one administration is better or worse, just that the adjustment to a new administration is probably not yet complete.

    Health. Regulating industries that would otherwise put employees in danger. Meat packing plants, for example.

    I want everywhere possible to require a vaccine passport for entry when they are available. Flights, restaurants, theme parks, international travel.

    It's safer for everyone, and would give an incentive for antivaxxers to change.

    No, safety first. Molecular genetics and molecular immunology degree, so I know the science.

    With two different types of vaccines (mRNA and viral), the likelihood of anyone being allergic to both is approximately 0.0006 percent or 6 people for every million. The vast majority of people who aren't vaccinated are doing it by choice.

    If you are choosing not to vaccinate, you're also choosing not to cruise. For everyone on board's safety.

    Wow vaccine apartheid! Incentives and coercion should not be pushed! In fact once the 'at risk' groups are fully vaccinated there should be no need to vaccinate everyone.  Have you researched the actual risks?

    The minute that happens is the minute those same entities can discriminate against you for any reason they want.
