Odyssey of the Seas leaving Israel and heading to Florida! It will offload crew to Anthem of the Seas...


Recommended Posts

  • Cruising With JT changed the title to Odyssey of the Seas leaving Israel and heading to Florida! It will offload crew to Anthem of the Seas...

It's news and a rumor, and I am sure more will come as the day progresses. I am not surprised given all that's going on there.... I was a bit surprised that Royal even put a ship out of Israel given the history of violence in and around that country... unfortunate what's going on there now...

Do they have enough time to sail to FL and back to Haifa before the start date of cruising there?  Maybe there will be a switcheroo of unvaccinated crew members with vaccinated ones from other ships and they'll send Odyssey back to Haifa.  

If they are getting a two shot vaccine in Florida that would make an early June start in Haifa a challenge.  Min. 3 weeks between doses.

Could they not send back some already vaccinated crew and redeploy the original Odyssey crew?

So many questions.

Is the US okay vaccinating crew who are then sent somewhere else in the world?  Kind of seems like these ports are vaccinating crew so ships can sail in the US from the ports that are offering the vaccination service.

JJ is readily available and requires no 2nd shot.

True but that isn't what has typically been used, so far.  

But more importantly why would the Port of Miami put all the effort into their vaccinate crew program just so the crew can be shipped off somewhere else?

PoM wants ships sailing from PoM.  That's why they offered vaccines to crew.  It wasn't supposed to be some global crew vaccination effort so that a cruise ship can sail from Europe.
