  1. Sweden’s death rate is 7%. I don’t know how that is good. They are willing to accept the deaths. That’s the difference.
  2. Next time you have surgery give your surgeon a break and tell them they don’t need a mask if you think it does not protect against disease. I am a physician who’s youngest patient with Covid 19 is 10 days old. ( it is real and much worse) The no mask argument goes back 100 years during the Spanish flu pandemic which by the way stated in Kansas ( Interesting history). You can see how cities and states did based on public health protocols. I wish I could invite all the nay sayers to come volunteer in the COVID units or ER or better yet go be a teacher. I am sure everyone has something to offer but it would be unethical. I am a senior citizen physician with high risk conditions but still feel the need to help. I pray you or your loved ones do not have a bad outcome from COVID-19 and we decrease the loss of life and life long disabilities it is causing. Maybe it comes to no mask no medical care. I am open to suggestions.
  3. On December 19, 2008 the first auto bailout was announced by President Bush and it only went down hill from there. I agree it would be best to dispute money now while you can.
  4. I turn 65 in October and had planned to retire at the end of this year. Covid 19 has turned that upside down. Never thought I would end my career in a pandemic. I think there will be some great changes we make in infection control on cruise ships that will benefit both passengers and staff going forward.
  5. We booked Sky suite on Summit for 12/2021 and for a great price. With the 4 perks it was the same price as/ or cheaper than Aqua or Concierge. It will be our first suite experience so I will report back in 19 months!
  6. I agree with staying safe until we have it under control and we all hope to sail in the future. As a doctor I take offense when people say they don’t need to worry because it is their choice if they get sick. I guarantee you they will be seeking medical care if they get critically ill and putting me and other first line workers at risk. We don’t want to die either. I have future cruises booked and I am crossing my fingers I will be able to go. Patience is what is needed. We will get past this.
  7. I work side by side every day with people willing to risk their lives for people they don’t know and they do it willingly. No one asks where they are from, who they voted for or if they can pay. Panic brings out the worst in people and hopefully the right thing will be done.
  8. As long as planes are landing with no control over what is on them Florida is at risk. Taking a known quantity and getting them off and to a safe place is better than letting them get sick and die on the ship. I am appalled at how people think. I am a frontline medical worker and know the risks daily and still go to work. These are human beings who were happy cruisers like we all were and are caught up in an awful situation. I personally experience insufficient supplies and still do my job everyday. I would be happy to help them.
  9. Well said. Unfortunately Italy is now seeing a spike in critically ill young people. This is evolving and not a case of the sniffles. Very hard on the medical professional’s that have to make these hard ethical decisions.
  10. We canceled our B2B NZ/Au Cruise. Sad at the time but glad we did now that my work informed me they would have kept me off for 2 weeks after returning. I work in health care with medically fragile patients and it is not work the risk.
  11. My TA told me. She may be mistaken as we canceled within hours of the change.
  12. Singapore is hot and humid and it survives there. No one knows for sure what this virus will do.
  13. You have until the end of 2021 to cruise. You have to book by the end of 2020.
  14. We were waiting for the car to pick us up for the airport when the new policy came into effect. We had a very emotional decision to make and chose to cancel. We knew we were high risk(DH with cancer) but let the money cloud our judgment. I am happy that Celebrity made the new policy. We know we will cruise again but need to be mindful of what is going on right now.
