  1. Understand what you are saying. There are a lot of seniors that have underlying health issues that are and have been controlled. These issues do not affect their health and we go on with our everyday lives. Part of the note in question: I hereby certify that this patient does not suffer from any chronic illness (e.g. heart, lung, liver or kidney disease or immunodefi ciency status due to HIV/AIDS or diabetes) which would make this patient susceptible to complications arising after infection with the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)/COVID-19. I attest that this person is fi t to travel on a cruise vacation. There are plenty of people that suffer from these conditions and have them under control. If the CLIA does not care if you are controlled by medication, then we are not going to be able to cruise. Maybe I am reading the note wrong. Time will tell. This is just my opinion. Hopefully I am wrong
  2. I think he means, no doctor is going to sign the note. ( it is the liability for them to sign) I feel the same way. We have 8 cruises booked thru to Feb. 2022 and might have to cancel them It is a waiting game.
  3. We have a b2b cruise in Nov. and wondering if we should cancel now or wait and see if they rescind the doctor's note. Like you, I have mild A-fib that is controlled. I do have a yearly doctor's appointment coming up in a couple months and will ask him if he would sign note as written. Wonder how RC will handle the cases if you call and say doctor would not sign?? FCC would not work since you would never be able to cruise. I guess you would have to turn it into insurance?? Guess we all will play the wait and see game.
  4. Oh we are healthy, but just in our mid 70"s.. No doctor will sign that form as it is written. Others have reported asking their doctor and was told NO.
  5. 7 months to maybe never, not by choice. (doctors note)
  6. https://www.cdc.gov/nceh/vsp/surv/outbreak/2020/Grandeur_3-7.html Sorry, but it is true.
  7. When we were on the Grandeur and it got the Noro, they actually picked up the CDC in San Juan. We had close to 200 cases.The cleaning they did was outstanding. They know how to prevent the spread of the virus.

  9. I don't think any of us will be able to get a doctor to sign the note.
  10. That's beyond how they did it when the ship had the Noro virus one year. Good to know they are being extra careful. Enjoy the rest of your cruise.
  11. Daughter n laws cruise is cancelled by RC week and she is wondering also. She will call once waiting times are shorter.
  12. I hope so. I really can't see a doctor signing as it would make him liable if something was to happen.
  13. You must do what you feel is best for your family. Hopefully everything will return to normal quickly.
