  1. Today is 10/20/2020. 60 days from now is 12/19/2020. Princess has ships scheduled to start before 12/19/2020.
  2. And a possible problem: https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2020/10/could-certain-covid-19-vaccines-leave-people-more-vulnerable-aids-virus
  3. You probably have as much information as Princess. It is up to the CDC if cruising will be allowed out of USA ports. It is up to the various ports on the itinerary if cruise ships are welcome. It may be wishful thinking, but Princess probably wants these cruises to happen if at all possible.
  4. If possible to cruise January-April, then it should happen. Much better for the cruise industry to actually have cruises occurring than not.
  5. You must be a youngster compared to me. When I was young a pay phone cost a nickle for a local call.
  6. One possible safety warning: https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2020/10/could-certain-covid-19-vaccines-leave-people-more-vulnerable-aids-virus
  7. They claim 100 Million doses by the end of the year, enough for the required two doses for 50 Million people. ot sure if all of those does are for the USA.
  8. I think that the FDA said they will be willing to approve a vaccine that is only 50% effective, not that vaccines might not be better than that.
  9. I thought you could cancel up to 45 days before the trip starts which is past final payment time.
  10. Hole is from April 10 to May 15. Ship has to get to the West coast somehow.
  11. No need to get around the Jones act for cruise ships. However the PVSA (Passenger Vessel Services Act) does apply.
  12. Pert the following article, Pfizer is just starting to includer people in this age range. https://www.healio.com/news/infectious-disease/20201004/time-to-include-children-in-covid19-vaccine-trials-experts-say Any results they might present in November will not include anyone under age 18.
  13. These are the two that bother me. Cell phone: I do not have one. Excursions: In general we do about 1/3 ship excursions, 1/3 private excursions (usually organized on the Cruise Critic roll call), and 1/3 touring on our own. After a 2nd or 3rd time in a port, ship excursions would be just repeats of what we have seen before.
  14. Although those younger than 18 have a very low mortality rate, they are just as likely to catch the coronavirus as those older than 18 and can just as easily spread it to those older than 18. In addition, they can still have damage to organs including the heart that are not immediately obvious.
