  1. The debacle at the beginning of the pandemic where several pax passed away on ships plus other ships were refused entry into ports I’m sure is on everyone’s mind. What steps are the cruiselines taking to ensure this won’t reoccur?
  2. The new 15 minute rapid test looks to be a game changer. They will be directed to schools at first but then should become more readily available. My question is who will be paying for the administering the tests if done at cruise terminal? My guess is that everyone will be required to pay an extra fee regardless of insurance.
  3. The molecular test is proven to return less than 5% false positives. One needs to protect themselves with insurance to recoup the cost of testing positive before the cruise. As adults I think we are all capable of getting over disappointment.
  4. It is only common sense that the virus can be caused by fine droplets in the air. That’s why outside is safer than inside.
  5. Flossie thanks for posting the link to the live thread on the MSC sailing. The poster is doing a fantastic job posting photos and commentary. I think this protocol is a workable first step to open cruising. The ship seems empty. I’m not certain the percent of capacity is sailing. I was LOL because there are a bunch of posters who are not on the cruise nitpicking every little thing. Nobody is forcing you to go! Also if others are not aware MSC has a luxury tier on all their ships called the Yacht Club.
  6. Do you think Regent would be able to go at 100% capacity? All the cabins filled? If not then pax will have to be bumped. (I have no idea of the answer, but it’s something to ponder)
  7. The new CDC recommendations haven’t even been announced yet. Then it takes time to implement. What percentage occupancy will be allowed?
  8. For sure. Circumstances and priorities change. I would get on a waiting list if I was determined to go.
  9. I will make my decision based on science, not conspiracy theories.
  10. If you are considering getting a VISA you might want to look into hiring a guide. There are several reputable tour companies that offer drivers and vans and their service includes a blanket VISA and it really doesn’t cost much more than what a US citizen has to pay for a VISA for Russia.
  11. For American pax, before cruising can even be thought about, borders have to be open. That has nothing to do with CDC. There are very very few borders open to Americans and less if you take away those that require negative Covid tests for entry or 14 day quarantine.
  12. What can I tell you? All I know is that was Regent was saying back in 2018. Also I’ve never been in the laundry room. Have you?
  13. The free internet is only for one device at a time per cabin. If you have status it is up to 4 devices, so it is still a valuable perk.
  14. It won’t change a thing based on our experience of Free Laundry For All during past Mediterranean itineraries 2018. Sure there were those those who complained that they earned the perk and it was not fair others were getting it. But did the turn around time change or quality lessen? Not one complaint about that. I believe if one does research that Regent said at that time they added extra help in the laundry dept.
  15. That’s a decision the pax will have to decide. How safe do they need it? If you’re young and healthy to begin with it might be worth the risk to them. After all, WDW in the hotspot of Florida is open for business along with the hotels.
