  1. Apparently according to the OP I am stupid. I just very recently Booked a cruise, it is the fifth cruise that I have booked between now and February 2021. I have every expectation that I will be cruising between mid 2021 and 2022. If you don’t like the emails there there’s a simple process for unsubscribing. Coming on Cruise critic and griping and complaining about emails you receive that you can easily unsubscribe just makes you look silly
  2. What is it about being above the zipline that like?
  3. Mexico is open to foreign tourists. You fly directly to Cancun from all over the US right now. Once the CDC gives approval to sail you'll see Costa Maya and Cozumel open to cruise ships.
  4. I've been reading the same threads... I think there is reason for optimism. I've also seen a few Youtube videos posted by folks on the Grandiosa. So far it looks pretty good. If similar precautions are used for cruises sailing out of the US I'll be onboard.
  5. Empress 2/20/21 Eastern Caribbean Radiance 5/5/21 Hawaii Radiance 5/5/21 Hawaii I was booked on Allure for Dec 2020 but I just cancelled that a couple of weeks ago. I didn't want to make final knowing it was going to be cancelled and then wait for refunds. So I acted proactively.
  6. It's not on hold in the US... It hasn't started in the US yet. They are still recruiting for their stage 3 trial. That work continues. Pfizer is in stage three trials in the US with 30,000 participants. Soon, with FDA approval, that will increase to 44,000. Pfizer trial will be concluded before Halloween. Moderna is 71% of their recruitment goal for their stage 3 trial. The only reason they didn't hit 100% yet is because they slowed recruitment to increase the diversity quotient.
  7. Pfizer is already in Phase 3 trials in the US and plans to increase from 30,000 participants to 44,000 participants. They expect they should have a report on efficacy by the end of October. They have already started producing the vaccine and have done so without government money. My money is on Pfizer
  8. On MSC there is no mask requirement on the pool deck. Chairs are spaced 1.5 meters to allow for social distancing. Also masks are required in the buffet line up but not while you are sitting at your table eating nor is it required in the MDR so there will be lots of time where masks are not required. I've watched a few video's from the early MSC Cruises and it all looks pretty positive so far. Unfortunately, all the video were in Italian so I don't understand them but lots of very positive gesturing from all the passengers and an upbeat vibe to it all.
  9. I think a ship at each port cooperatively staffed by all the cruise lines sailing out of that port could be a reasonable option for any positive tests that occur onboard. They are all going to have spare ships hanging around, this might be a good use for them.
  10. Good point, never thought about that. I just liked the look of it.
  11. I expect the rules to be mercilessly enforced. The cruise lines and their employees know that their economic survival depends of it.
  12. Actually it is not just Italian passengers, it is passenger from any of the Schengen area. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schengen_Area#Current_members
