  1. Thanks for the response; one more question. It appears that the running track goes around the front of the ship; how does it get around these balcony cabins?
  2. CDC has nothing to do with it; Mariner in October is in the Med. It is totally up to Jason; scratch that; it is totally up to FdR.
  3. Only time we have been on RCCL was for four nights on Sovereign in 2002. Now, we are looking at a Western Caribbean out of Galveston with neighbors; a quick drive to port. They are looking at category CB on Deck 12 right next to spa. I notice that fitness center is below and Liberty Dunes (I believe flowrider) above. Anyone have experience with this cabin or one nearby? Is there a lot of noise from above? Are the elevator lobbies noisy? TIA, Marc PS I plead guilty to not using the search function.
  4. Agree; time for mask burning party!
  5. No, it is just a big incentive for those that are not vaccinated to get vaccinated.
  6. I know this is cut and paste from Cruise Mapper however this is creative writing and its not even 1 April. 😄 Regent hasn't give FCC in many months. Regent Reassurance is only good for sailing dates prior to 31 October 2021. If Cruise Mapper released this prior to NCLH then someone is going to be in lots of trouble. 😄
  7. From the CDC website regarding Vessel Sanitation Program (https://www.cdc.gov/nceh/vsp/desc/aboutvsp.htm): About the Vessel Sanitation Program What VSP Does The Vessel Sanitation Program (VSP) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) assists the cruise ship industry to prevent and control the introduction, transmission, and spread of gastrointestinal (GI) illnesses on cruise ships. VSP operates under the authority of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. Section 264 Quarantine and Inspection Regulations to Control Communicable Diseases).
  8. Obviously not a useful PhD. 😃 If a ship ever wants to enter US waters either to embark or disembark or for a port visit the ship must follow CDC guidance; this is most noticeable with regard to CDC Vessel Sanitation Program. I would take it further that even if a ship does not enter US waters for multiple years (e.g., Voyager was out of USA for at least three years) but the company does enter US waters it is best if the Voyager also followed USA rules (e.g., vessel sanitation).
  9. Independent exploration in Level 1 countries only; and, at this time, there are ZERO Level 1 countries.
  10. Now, if they would only have the same policy for indoors. 😒
  11. Dave, do you have COVID language for the Regent sold cruise insurance? I wonder if it covers all expenses which Regent says it won't cover.
  12. I am on the same Splendor cruise as your sister; I just made air reservations today. If this isn't settled by December, I don't think the air fare will be significant loss compared with all the ramifications of no cruise industry in USA.
  13. At least CDC has removed the single cabin requirement for crew. Now there is this recommendation: Minimize the number of crew sharing a cabin or bathroom to the extent practicable. Source: https://www.cdc.gov/quarantine/cruise/management/technical-instructions-for-cruise-ships.html
  14. South Africa is on the red list; what happens if you are flying to USA from South Africa via Heathrow; any problems?
  15. Lori, I think there are plenty of replacement ports for Mariner WC in Asia and the Pacific Islands; I think Explorer's trip to Australia and New Zealand will definitely be cancelled; I wonder if they will even try to have a fall Asia season.
