  1. Did I miss something, where are kids getting very ill with COVID?
  2. I know here in San Antonio everyone over 16 are now eligible to get vaccinated and appointments are still hard to get. I have not read or heard about any dosses going to waste or not being used. We are now over the 30% mark of county citizens having received both doses. Our positivity rate continues to decline as well.
  3. Here is more talking, 😋, the taste of that wasabi crusted tenderloin is still vivid in my memory from 2018 cruise on the N. Amsterdam, had it three nights out of 10 on that cruise.
  4. I am not surprised that booster shots every year may be needed, just like we do with the flu every year. My wife and I had both Pfizer shots and the second one gave us hardly any side effects other than being a little tired the first night. Now our daughter who also had the Pfizer shots was sick for 2 days, but she was just ending a chemo treatment for breast cancer and her immune system was severely taxed by the chemo.
  5. The wasabi crusted tenderloin is my favorite and better than any steak in the Pinnacle grill, IMO. Wish Tamarind would replace the Canaletto in the rest of the fleet, but that will not happen.
  6. I was on the Noordam in July 2019 and she does not have a Tamarind specialty restaurant and bar, I wish she did as it is our favorite restaurant in the HAL fleet. Only the Signature and Pinnacle class ships have the Tamarind restaurant.
  7. What scientific proof do you have to make this statement?
  8. Until the CDC rescinds its no sail order from US ports, the POA is going nowhere. That is a reality. Hawaii is in the US and the CDC order includes all state ports. The CDC will not even answer the NCL CEO's letters to demand reopening. The law suits filed against the CDC by Florida, Alaska and Texas will take months or years to get through the court system. My sister has her whole family of 10 on a POA cruise in July and like many, she doesn't believe it will not sail and refuses to face reality. If the CDC holds firm to its no sail order until November, how can the POA cruise any earlier?

  10. Greece Will Reportedly Reopen To U.S. Tourists Next Week—If They Meet These Conditions (forbes.com) This story says US tourist who are either vaccinated or have a negative test will be allowed to enter. Does not cover getting a tested to come back to the US, but I believe that cruise lines resuming cruises from Athens like Celebrity, are going to have testing available on board prior to the end of cruises. So far nothing from HAL about Greek cruises other than a rumor about the Eurodam moving to Athens for the summer.
  11. From what I am reading Greece will by May 15th with proof of vaccinations and negative testing before arrivals. I think once Greece opens up more in the EU will follow.
  12. HAL hasn't canceled our September Westerdam cruise from Athens either. As of now the Westerdam is anchored off the coast of Baja California and we do not see how she will get to Athens totally empty by this summer. Other cruise lines are already announcing their changes and additions to cruises this summer but from HAL we hear nothing. BTW HAL is still booking our cruise on the Westerdam.
  13. I am also in Texas and agree no dosses are going unused. In San Antonio we are getting close to 50% of adults with at least the first shot. If the fake news is the source, it is going to be biased.
  14. My two sisters are historically anti-vaxxers who both got Covid vaccinated because they want to travel again and like my wife and I are booked on September cruises. I say get stuck or stay stuck at home.
  15. You are so right on, my next door neighbor is a 40 somthing health care worker who had Covid 2 times last year. The first case left her with permanent lung damage and a loss of taste that is slowly improving. She couldn't wait to get her vaccination in January.
