    KWofPerth reacted to dswallow in Bahamas banning cruise ships w/anyone 12+ not vaccinated   
    This is excellent news, and likely exactly what several of the cruise lines were hoping would happen in other countries after St. Thomas made their announcement not too long ago about the requirement. Plant the seed, watch it take root and grow.

    With out taking any side , just from doint the math ,  its not really 50/50 if we look at the numbers.
    Lets say they found 6 people with C19 on an RCL ship , 3 are vaccinated and 3 are not  . we know that the current capacity is around 30% more and less ,  around 1000  in the Voyager class and 2000 in the Oasis.
    We also know that RCL reporting at least 90 % (if not 95%) are vaccinated in there cruise .  Therefore the real calculation should be : 
    3 people out of 100 people on the ship which are not vaccinated and found with C19 = 3 %
    3 people out of 900 vaccinated people on the ship that found with the C19 =  0.3% 
    Or after normalize the numbers its around 91% of the people that found with C19 were unvaccinated  and only 9% were not.

    I hope more ports will impose such vaccination requirements since the lines (and Florida) are unwilling.

    I watched Cruise with Ben & David's latest Youtube episode lastnight. They were on Anthem sailing out of the UK and were charged 29pounds for the NorthStar.  So on Ovation, who knows?

    It's the vaccines that will get us somewhere. Until that gets rolled out substantially, lockdowns will continue.

    Our biggest fear is that we have both had the two Astra shots but the USA don't recognise that brand. I know things will change but I would be shattered getting to the US in Jan for our series of cruises only to be knock back by Royal. This is assuming we can get out of the country by then. I hate all this uncertainty. 
    Fingers crossed we open a bubble with Singapore and can jump onto the Quantum for a cruise or two before the end of the year.

    Bonus of going to pharmacy is getting a real printed label. Put them in the passport, extras I will stick on a flat credit card plastic and then laminate. Honor system was never going to work. Next buzzword will be "booster" shots. The un vaxxed will keep this bug alive and mutating for many years.

    Will you also risk the inability to return home for months with associated costs, and the cost of paying for 2 weeks in quarantine? ??
    As keen as I am to go on a cruise, leaving the country (for the foreseeable future) to go on one is nowhere near as easy as you make it sound.

    KWofPerth reacted to loki007 in Vaccines   
    The vaccines are 95% effective, which is excellent, never has it been said that the vaccines offer 100% immunity. No vaccine in history has offered that. What they do guarantee, 100%, is you wont end up in the hospital fighting for your life. I work in a hospital. Today is our first day since March 2020 we do not have any COVID patients. In the past 3 months every patient in the hospital, some of whom died, were guess what? NOT Vaccinated. What the Celebrity Millennium demonstrated was the effectiveness of the vaccines at stopping spread. 2 patients (who were vaccinated) tested positive but asymptomatic, and not 1 other crew member or passenger tested positive. That's 2 people out of about 1300. Amazing results.

    Pfizer shots are now available to the 30-49yo cohort here in WA, with 20,000 bookings made (myself and the missus included) since the announcement yesterday arvo.  I believe nationally that Pfizer is now available for anyone 40+. 
    This would seem to be the start of what will hopefully be an upwards spike in the rollout.

    I’m not talking about the immunisation history.. but there is a ‘digital certificate’ that appears which you can download to your phone, etc once you have had the second dose.

    Well I guess we will have a better idea around the 17th.
    In NSW they are talking about issuing vaccince passports which will be fantastic as this should allow us to travel and enter the US, Singapore, etc. We have our second shot of Astra this month, so will all good to go

    I think we have almost taken the lead here in Victoria. Just need a small outbreak/lockdown to get people going.
    As of this morning I am fully vaccinated and ready to cruise!!!!!!
    The cruise ban expires in 8 days. An announcement coming in the next few days I am guessing from previous extensions. Will it be good news?

    All good, everyone has a different opinion, I was just going off of what I am seeing on other social media sites like Facebook and my thoughts, most people aren't too happy with the decision. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. Fortunately for me my next cruise isn't until November. I am a big believer in that the best and safest way to get cruising restarted out of the US is to require vaccines for all those who are eligible. Plain and simple. It's temporary, not forever, just do it at the start, because if something happens onboard, the CDC is ready to shut it down again.

    Shocking news of the day... Carnival requires vaccine but Royal drops it. Who could've predicted that? Disappointing news for sure for myself and all other Loyal to Royal cruisers but let's see how this all plays out. I think Royal dropped the ball on this to be honest but we'll see...oh and that Carnival Mardi Gras ship don't look too bad...I got a feeling that Royal may reverse course... usually happens when there is a huge backlash from their loyal customer base. Michael Bayley (President/CEO of Royal Caribbean) said that 80% of their guests prefer to go on cruise ships that ARE vaccinated, so of course this decision makes perfect sense. LOL.

    Vaccines are free, responsible folks should have the wherewithal to protect themselves and not complicate the issues of restarting cruises. Yes, you have a choice, get vaccinated or find another type of vacation rather than running the risk of ruining cruising for everyone.  The CDC will be standing by waiting for the first hint of COVID cases on board cruise ships, and here we go again and they will be saying “We told you so” loud and and clear!
