  1. Oh, how much we long to be back home on a Wind Star ship...
  2. They cannot sail to Canadian ports until 2022 so these itineraries are likely under reconsideration.
  3. Milepig, we are hoping to book the 2022 Greenland itinerary. Maybe we will finally get to meet!
  4. My husband and I are considering the Greenland: North Atlantic Odyssey in September 2022. I was looking for some feedback from someone who has done this. It sounds fascinating, but is quite pricey. I would love to hear from someone who has done this cruise.
  5. The CDC restriction is not to exceed seven days in the US, which the Alaskan cruises exceeded. Perhaps, sailing from a US port like San Juan is not an issue if the remainder of the cruise is not in the US. Fingers crossed for you.
  6. Vaccines for small pox and yellow fever last a lifetime. This is unlikely for a corona virus. The problem now is that we do not know how long the immunity will last for these vaccines. If you provide proof of vaccine on June 1st, we do not know if you are still immune on December 1st. To further complicate matters, it is not known at this time if the vaccine actually prevents COVID or just prevents symptoms. If it only prevents symptoms, then it does not stop the spread of the virus if you can remain asymptomatic and a spreader. This is truly more complicated than we can imagine.
  7. It seems odd to sail the Caribbean in the summer. Of course, I would take any sailing right now!
  8. My TA just received the following regarding our booked Alaska cruise for July 2021. In November, Star Breeze completed her stretch and transformation as part of the $250 Million Star Plus Initiative. After seeing the 50 new suites, restaurants, spa and fitness center and other new and updated public spaces, I can’t wait to sail aboard her again. We know your clients were also looking forward to their 2021 cruise aboard Star Breeze. Unfortunately, we must change her deployment due to recent regulations for U.S. cruises released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
  9. That's because it is a Cruise Tour. The first two days are on land at Lake Como. The remaining 9 days are at sea between Rome and Venice.
  10. On Caribbean cruises, you can't just spend the day at the beach? This is not going to be popular.
  11. Just to clarify, I am a firm believer in the value of wearing face coverings during this pandemic, and I am totally compliant. It would take away so much of the pleasure and relaxation that we have grown to adore on Windstar. I would wait until there is no need for face coverings. Just hoping that will be by July 2021.
  12. The complicated logistics of getting the required testing prior to embarkation combined with a likely requirement for face coverings on the ship makes this rather unappealing to me. How can this be a relaxing vacation? I am booked for Alaska in July 2021, but will reconsider if masks are required on board.
