We go for our Covid tests at CVS tomorrow morning, then first thing Sunday morning start the drive down for our Monday Indy Cruise.  May it all go as planned with the cruise Gods watching over all cruisers.

Fingers crossed for you!!

I just canceled my cruise for Sunday on Odyssey of the seas. Don’t want to take a chance of not going to the ports that we really wanted to see. Hopefully things will settle down and we can reschedule soon

Such sad news but you did the right thing. When we couldn't leave the ship on the Odyssey a few weeks ago it was sad. While we totally made the most of it, given your same scenario and knowing as well as experiencing looking at Aruba from... well our balcony, we would have made the same decision. Here's hoping the crews get and stay healthy, fingers crossed we get through this sooner rather than later. (The Odyssey was great mind you but missing the shows in addition to seeing less and less crew....we were ready to disembark.

We was very disappointed our cruise on January 29 th on the Jewel was canceled, we was still going, but had concerns about not getting in at ports, waiting three hours here locally for a covid test  and hope you test negative, then keeping a mask on inside all the time, which was no problem if that’s the rules, we was flying into Ft Lauderdale, it’s cold in Cincinnati area, we think we are now going to keep flight, rent a car and spend a few days in Key West, one of our favorite port stops. This was our third cruise that was canceled, we was meeting our cruise friends from Napa Ca. That we met a few years ago on a cruise, plus two other couples, that’s what is so disappointing. Good luck to all the cruisers, we will try again in the fall is our hope.

It breaks my heart to read your post but I completely understand where you are coming from.  I hope are able to reschedule and take a cruise soon. 

Hopefully this Omicron variant surge burns out by the 3 week of 4th week of January.

It just hurts every time I read someone has either canceled their cruise or had their cruise canceled.

Unfortunately we are also on the verge of cancelling our Anthem cruise scheduled for January 20th.  We run a small business and have been struggling with keeping our teams healthy the past six weeks.   Right now it feels like a losing battle.  

We booked this cruise over 2 years ago only to have it cancelled last year and now with the flu-rona outbreaks. excursion cancellations, and possible port changes, it just feels like it's not the right time.  The physical and mental well being of our employees needs to be the priority right now.

Frustrated.............

Looks like I am slowly heading towards the decision to cancel as well, unfortunately. I am booked on Navigator 1/17 and as of now I am still on it, however with everything going on, not knowing what could happen with things on the ship and ports etc, and most importantly having an unvaccinated 4-year daughter at home, I don't know if I want to take any chances of bringing something back home and giving it to her. I know she can catch it at school too but their daycare is also impacted as staff/classrooms have had positive cases, so we are keeping her home for the next week and maybe longer. Sigh...don't know what to do... I had to cancel my LA hotel tonight before the 6pm deadline for a full refund...what's weird is the rates are now even less than when I booked the hotel a few months ago. Guess everyone is cancelling literally everything. Omicron has really impacted so much. Still blows my mind that airplanes are packed, sports stadiums and the like... wish i didn't have to fly to LA from Seattle to get on the cruise...

We are also on symphony on the 5th we fly to miami on the 2nd from spain! Praying this doesn't get canceled! 

FYI, the Odyssey has a 6-day sailing out of Ft Lauderdale on February 6th. I would keep that in mind as a backup. We go down to Key West after our Symphony cruise. If  the Symphony cancels,  we will spend an additional week in the keys.

Any reports of Covid cases on Explorer of the Seas? 2/13 is our embarkation date. 

Right now it's not IF it's how many. The protocols are keeping it in check but I feel so strongly the crew should be afforded a bit more living space for the foreseeable future. Just be ready to roll with the ever changing protocols and you can re visit when it gets a little closer, thank goodness for CWC. Here's wishing you a great sailing.
