Our next RCC cruise is on February 13th from Puerto Rico aboard Explorer of the Seas. Since we have to travel from California my hope is that the testing requirements don't become MORE stringent. Three days prior would work for us. However anything more restrictive i.e. 2 or 1 day prior is a problem. 

Just so you aren’t missing anything, it is 2 days for adults (antigen) ….

Honestly, slim to none are the odds of a cancellation.

Protocols worked, the lines have plans with ports and CDC. This is all planned for, and even Symphony went about her next sailing as scheduled.

I agree Matt. We sail in 6 days and my wife just asked me after reading the morning headlines if we were still going. I told her yes given all the protocols. I added with the new bonus (to us…obviously not to all) that there will be no smoking in the casino. I think what will be interesting is if this weeks sailings see similar rates that Symphony did or less.

I agree that the protocols work. Along with the fact that the vast majority of vaccinated guests who get the virus seem primarily asymptomatic and discovered during contact tracing. The medical facilities are not stressed and the following cruises still sail. The major distinction (on land and onboard) is between the number of positives vs the number of people requiring medical intervention. In my opinion, that distinction seems to be purposely obscured so as to increase the perception of danger in the effort to get more people vaccinated. I still think cruising is safe and will continue to sail...with whatever healthy sail protocols are in place now or in the future. It's my choice.

another bonus, lots of cancellations maybe and less people!

I’m really interested to see what’s happening on odyssey right now. Of Covid is running through the crew as some people have said I could see them shelving it for two weeks. Royal caribbean has already taken some sailings (mine on January 2nd) off of their website and TA sites today. 

I’ve been reading quite a bit about what’s going on with Odyssey right now too. Sounds like a mess. 
 

Quite a few upset people on Odyssey right now.

We are currently being denied disembarkation, awaiting the Prime Minister‘s “press conference“ before they let us off. The captain said we need to wait about an hour until we hear more from the health authorities. It sounds like a great opportunity to pass the buck to the government of Curaçao rather than make the decision not to let us go ashore from the RCI team.

If they do let us ashore, it will probably be vaccinated passengers only. As much as the merchants in the city of Willemstad would like to see the increase of 5000 people buying their products, I’m sure the government doesn’t want to take the risk.

Fingers crossed that they will let us go ashore. The busses are out here waiting…051A58B6-FDD7-456E-AEB2-3AB8FB2B5B6F.thumb.jpeg.b7fc8cf970fd5c4abdf537a8b546a03b.jpeg

I'm getting seriously nervous about our January 3rd cruise now. Especially since they removed the first two weeks of January cruises from the Royal Caribbean website.

 

Removal from the website just means they stopped selling cabins (even if temporarily if they're doing some cabin shifting). There's zero to read into in regards to cancellations.

It also means that things are getting more serious. I guess to be honest we are more worried about the potential for our college freshman to have to quarantine before going back to campus. It would stress her out completely.

Yes, the crew as many as 60 have tested positive and only 3 passengers. So, I hate the media reporting on this yes, there are positives but how many people are really on this ship? How many people are healthy because like them or not their actions/protocols seem to be working. If cruising soon just know and accept its going to be different. If you are stressed about missing things like shows and ports then pass. But if you can roll with just sitting on your balcony in the sunshine and warm breezes, listening to the ocean by all means, do it!

I have been following the number of rooms available on the Jan 30 sailing of Oasis. Yesterday there were 97 available ocean view balcony rooms. Today there were 147 ocean view balcony rooms. All other categories are virtually the same. Did RC just open these rooms up for booking? I find that kind of strange. Any thoughts?
