  1. You don't need a PCR test to fly back to the US . An antigen test will suffice. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/testing-international-air-travelers.html What types of SARS-CoV-2 test are acceptable under the Order? Passengers must be tested with a viral test that could be either an antigen test or a nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT). Examples of available NAATs for SARS-CoV-2 include but are not restricted to reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP), transcription-med
  2. I was surprised...to say the least...when the Senate passed the Alaska-sponsored bill...just hours after i said "no way" !!!🙄
  3. Every state but one (IIRC New Hampshire is the exception) has a centralized state vaccine data base, called an IIS...immunization information system . Your COVID vaccination record should be available in that database.
  4. It would require a statutory change not just a regulatory revision and there is no chance of that happening. The bills already introduced by Alaska's delegation have not even gotten a committee hearing nor would this.
  5. It is a one off but it's also not just a stop or port call. There's one cruise ending in Galveston followed by a cruise departing Galveston. If you go to NCL's website you'll see both available for booking.
  6. Correct...a waiver is only permitted for national security reasons, so cruising is not eligible for a waiver.
  7. True, but FYI the REAL ID requirement was recently postponed again, this time until May 3, 2023 . https://www.dhs.gov/real-id/real-id-faqs "Q: When will REAL ID be enforced? The enforcement date is May 3, 2023." Given that the REAL ID law was enacted in 2005, sixteen years (or 18 years to the latest effective date) and numerous postponements later one has to wonder whether it ever will be implemented.
  8. You're wrong. For months and months the cruise industry announced repeated voluntary suspensions of cruising and after the CDC issued the Conditional Sail Order to replace the prior No Sail Order the cruise lines made no attempt to issue formal plans to comply until recently.
  9. The state has never negotiated with the CDC about cruise resumption and the cruise lines only started doing so very recently.
  10. They opened in 2007. https://www.juniorscheesecake.com/blog/2017/06/11/49th-opening-wsj/#:~:text=Since it opened in 2007,location in the theater district. "Since it opened in 2007, the Times Square location of Junior’s Restaurant has been a success..."
  11. Yes, the "Sail Safe" rules are the same across the entire NCLH fleet.
  12. NCLH protocols currently include mask requirements on all cruises . Here's the statement on Oceania's website: https://www.oceaniacruises.com/health FACE COVERINGS Face coverings are currently required for guests while indoors except for in their own accommodations and while eating and drinking in restaurants, bars and lounges or outdoors when physical distancing is not possible. Face coverings may be required in certain settings to comply with local requirements, for example in terminals for embarkation and disembarkation or at ports of call. We
  13. Since you're interested in the Intrepid, the two hotels on West 48th St. I mentioned are very conveniently located as the Intrepid is located at Pier 86 . Per Carmine's website their Times Square location is "temporarily closed". Becco is currently open Wednesday through Sunday.
  14. I agree with the comments made by @mjkacmom and @Noxequifans . You need to do a little research on your own, decide what you want to do in order to pick a convenient area to stay...and you want to look at prices because there's a huge spread top to bottom. If it turns out you just want basic accommodations at a reasonable price close to the port there are a Comfort Inn and a Holiday Inn Express on West 48th St, each in walking distance to the port. When my son and DIL stayed at the Comfort Inn they said it was clean and fine for a one night stay, and I suspect the HIE is the same.
