  1. Might as well just say April or May or 2030. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  2. 37 people and they couldn't even get a cruise with no positive Covid cases. How is that possible and now imagine a large ship. Seems impossible. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  3. Could see that coming a miles away. What a shame and setback. It's gonna be a long while before we see cruising in the world forget about the US. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  4. I have a hard time seeing how this ends. It's just raging, people dying. Reports are by years end there could be a million dead worldwide. I mean we are at 675,000 now in August so it's easy to see. Sad stuff and forget about cruising from North America for God only knows how long. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  5. Interesting video here, encouraging but I like the sound of it. https://www.cnn.com/videos/health/2020/07/30/coronavirus-vaccine-timeline-effectiveness-cohen-lead-bts-vpx.cnn
  6. First you ask a question and then answer it yourself. People have sailed the ocean for centuries and will continue to that I'm sure of. And people have sailed the ocean for both transportation and leisure. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  7. I don't think that is the best answer here. People will sail the ocean forever as they have done forever. It would suck for these companies that know how to this right, that people love to just go away. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  8. June 2023! They won't be in business like as in at all. I mean I'm not saying you are wrong because who knows but the lines won't be able to last that long. That's still over 2 years away. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  9. I've got a very curious question and I'd like to see what people think about this. Instead of a "soft lock down" we did, I mean I went out every single day of this so called lock down, not to party but necessary things but what if we did a full on lock down stay at home for 2-4 weeks? Like we said hey this week go to the supermarket get enough food for 2-4 weeks but on Sunday is a full on shut down. Like the only people that leave their house are cops, fireman, doctor, nurses and people that work in power plants. If we did that for 2-4 weeks would that have made a huge difference or just temporary and this would have went to ***** eventually anyway like it is now? Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  10. I have a stupid question. These vaccines which I am not skeptical of. I believe it will be here sooner than most around think and it will be safe. Forget about that though. My question is when you see "the US government ups its investment in such and such vaccine to 2 billion for 100 million doses" or the "UK pays this much for 100 million does of this vaccine", what exactly does that mean? Doesn't that tell us the actual vaccine will be free or am I missing something?
  11. I never expected anyone to give this vaccine away. What I do expect us that is works and it's safe. The insurance companies and the government fight over price and who pays for what. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  12. How about this and this would be a bit painful for passengers but how about am extra fee on top of everyone's cruise fare? Something like 200 bucks per person that goes into a fund to cover this? Then again I have no idea what the cover charge would need to be. Wasn't there talk of portable temp hospital wards right at the ports of call? They were like pre manufactured hospital rooms that were gonna be placed right at the ports.

  13. That would really not be good. Another year would be extremely painful. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  14. I agree, they wouldn't do anything to hurt anyone. They will make sure it's safe. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
  15. I just watched a doctor on YouTube talk about "herd immunity" and it's a bit complicated because this virus is so new. He said herd immunity is 70% or more infected and developed antibodies. The problems this time is obviously it's new and they are not sure if these antibodies last or how long they last at all. They are seeing unfortunately antibodies disappear in 8-9 weeks which he says is unusual. That may in the end not be there case but right now that is what they are seeing. The vaccine is interesting. Oxford is the one I most have followed and they seem to be doing great, great work. I trust them that they will not endanger anyone with their vaccine. I would think with the vaccine it would be the same as the herd immunity, 70% or more would need to achieve the immunity we need. As I have said I will get it when it becomes available to the masses. I'm not worried about it. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
