  1. what? where. omg I didn't see that on Harmony. I would have been in huge trouble
  2. We just got home from our March 1st Harmony cruise out of Pt Canaveral on Sunday. Boarding was the same as always with questions about where we had been. they didn't check passports or anything(I was concerned because my husband has China visa's in his from work travel last year but didn't even check). The screenings were not what you think and just because you don't have a fever at boarding doesn't mean you are not going to get sick. We were relieved that there were no issues and we were able to port during our cruise(except Costa Maya due to high winds) but being said...we were both glad to be home and glad our cruise was before the US sees an explosion of cases like other countries. We had very rough seas on our cruise due to weather and I would not have wanted to miss ports OR be quarantined on the ship....even with a balcony. We were also glad to be out of the airports. We were cautious and washed our hands, wipes....all that we could. We are Diamond cruisers and at this point would NOT cruise in the next few months. Just not worth the worry or chance. If its rebookable...do it. also we tried to rebook our trip 2 days before we left...RCCL said no money back so we had no choice. the new refunds went into effect the week we were on the ship. Just to make you think....we found out today that the day we flew out some Covid positive people flew thru the same terminal we did in Phoenix the day before we left. There are also some reported cases of workers in FLL. We are healthy 53 yr olds so less worry about getting sick...was more about possible quarantine, missing ports, and our dogs/house and costs if we got stuck.
  3. We are not Canadians...but my 2 cents. We just got home from our Harmony cruise out of Pt Canaveral on Sunday. Boarding was the same as always with questions about where we had been. they didn't check passports or anything. The screenings are not what you think.

  4. We were at Coco Cay monday and it was windy and cold...but sunny. I thought the water was very cold. I think the high was 72
  5. Wow the ocean looks perfect. We are on Harmony going Western and missed Costa Maya today due to high winds lots of white caps and the ship is a rockin hope we make Roatan tomorrow
  6. I was on hold for 59 mins this am to talk to RCCL and got a supervisor. We leave Saturday and could not change or do anything. other than cancel and lose all our money. 😕
  7. I am pretty sure in MSC statement it says he boarded in Miami and went thru the protocols that all went through. They quarantined him for precaution and he has regular influenza A flu.
  8. On MSC board their is a link to a statement that Grand Cayman wont let them dock tomorrow due to 2 crew members
  9. yes I am sorry I didn't include that. it just shows that we don't know if that could happen on our upcoming cruises either.
  10. We are cruising on Saturday and have concerns and have the right post about them and chat with others about it. The comments are not needed. skip the post if you are not interested in it. thank you
  11. I agree but at the same time it does suck to miss a port...and what if other ports do it? that is a concern as well. for me at least.
  12. is this true??? is the ship or the port?? n answer to the customs clearance question , RCI’s Radiance of the seas is currently doing an Australasia circumnavigation and was denied docking in Bali due to the Coronavirus. Bali was their foreign port for tax and customs purposes so officials were allowed onboard while they were anchored off shore to clear the ship so they could still have their duty free etc onboard . How many and how long does it take for customs officers to clear a ship? I am sure MSC would facilitate that.
  13. from MSC boards..... We just got notice that we were denied because one of the staff has regular influenza A. They're in quarantine but the officials at Jamaica won't clear us for this reason. The captain has decided that we will leave now. I hope this doesn't prevent us from getting clearance at our next three stops 😕
