Flexible thinking in light of Covid ! I should have thought of this sooner!

Hello everyone!

We booked our cruise, on allure of the seas, which departs on August 28 back in early November 2021. As the cruise has gotten closer I found that my unease about whether or not we will all test negative has increased. It will be my husband and I and my two adult children, neither who live with us.

 I spent so much time thinking of every scenario, getting them tested 11 days before so we can get a certificate of recovery, or what if they or us get Covid before the cruise and will there be enough recovery time to get a negative before the cruise. It has caused more tension and then I was aware of?

For whatever reason, and maybe I’m the only numbskull who did not have this occur to her before now, but it came to me today, if anyone of us in the family test positive  and therefore can’t board the cruise, we will still have our vacation! We already have our flights to Fort Lauderdale, from different parts of the country, and I have decided I will start searching for a back up plan. The most important thing was us going together as a family , on a vacation, and not really the cruise itself. Though the cruise would be unbelievable!

So, for those of us who are sweating it out, if you haven’t  been already done so, consider keeping your vacation time as well as the vacation participants in tact and do something different!!!

So if you test positive, you are going to fly across the country and potentially infect an entire plane full of people?

No, I do not intend to that.  I was more specifically referring to if we were continuing to test positive up to 72 hours prior, even if we were past the CDC quarantine period and are asymptomatic .  I should have made that clearer as I see my post didn’t reflect my intentions, that is my fault completely as I see how it read.    I would have welcomed a response for clarification rather than the one you gave.  Glad I have the opportunity to specify now.

Policy is arbitrary at this point , based upon the discretion of the specific policy maker ..…we don’t have to test for cruises under 6 nights, etc.  it is a moving target which causes stress, which was the original intention of my post.

One of my kids continued to get positive test several months ago, even after 3weeks of first positive test and was never symptomatic.  There is no guarantee of a time sensitive negative .

I would continue my journey. Just as i would with a common cold or any other treatable, low level not very dangerous annoyance. Now, put a smoker beside me in the casino and I would have a problem. Not from the cancer, but the smell.
