As a glass half-full kind of guy, I think @Matt may have accidentally provided RCG an invaluable service: a database of individuals who should ABSOLUTELY 100% NOT be involved on a test cruise due to a

This thread just gets funnier and funnier.  Best one in a long time.  I too would like to volunteer.  However, I think the best way to trial all of these protocols is to test them under the most sever

Yeah, looks like I was correct and not long after they made an announcement either a lawyer or the CDC themselves made contact and said it doesn't work that way.

 

I am also guessing they will probably prioritize Crown and Anchor members over general public.  Why do I say this, well if you have been on a cruise with them you know some of how things work and are less likely to do things that will cause issues.

Yes, but only if they did not require me to be tracked and traced everywhere I went on the ship.  If they did not require any mask mandates.  If they did not require a virus test (which is proven to be false - positive).  If they did not require a vaccine.

Kind of like pre-mid-March 2020 when we were allowed to roam free on the ship with just our sea pass card, no mask, no testing, no vaccine.

The good ole' days.

You from Florida? Based on everything I know about Florida and how they've treated the pandemic, this screams Floridian, with a 1% chance of South Dakota. Hope you didn't send this from a smart phone

Yes from Florida.  I guess it depends on the news feed that you watch and where you get the information on how the cases are, etc.  And no, not sending from stupid cell phone.  LOL

I went back and forth on this a while back and am now at the point where I would certainly consider going on a test cruise for the following reasons:

1. We've learned a lot about COVID
2. Royal has been sailing overseas without any major issues
3. I have both of my vaccine doses
4. I need to get out of the house 🙂

we were comfortable cruising even during the early days, because we know how we cruise and we felt that with masks, social distancing, and sanitation measures, that we could do it safely without issue.  Our bigger issue was getting to the port and spending the night, but we think that is now able to be done fairly easily.  

The concern that many people may still have is that you can be a "carrier" of COVID and we certainly do not want to bring it back to our loved ones, so as as more people get access to the vaccine that will help as well.

 

Thanks and stay safe!
