  1. No indication of fatality or injury yet reported. Our sympathy to all affected in the Middle East. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/23335-orient-queen-cruise-ship-damaged-in-beirut-blast.html
  2. IMHO cruise will not be the problem for cruise duration of 7-days or less. You get on a ship after being checked and all OK. The problem lies in what happen between day 1 and day 7. You may be contaminated ashore during those days but will not show any symptom before going home. Then it hits you. On a 10-14 day cruise, I would worry.

  4. The chief executive also reassured representatives of fears of the virus being imported into Polynesia by American tourists. "It is reported to us that many American visitors are discouraged by the constraints that we have put in place. Nearly 15% of the passengers are not boarded in Los Angeles, either by refusal of Air Tahiti Nui or by no presentation at the counter. This is to tell you that the arrival of American tourists in French Polynesia is quite restrictive and does not happen en masse. The negative RT-PCR test required of each boarding passenger constitutes an efficient filter which maximizes our health security. " The first returns quantified by the airline Air Tahiti Nui since July 15: Los Angeles - Papeete flights are 50% full, while Papeete - Los Angeles flights are 20%. https://www.tahiti-infos.com/Tourisme-1-521-auto-tests-analyses-et-tous-negatifs_a192932.html
  5. But 15% of passengers on ATN did not showed up or were refused entry on planes flying to FP. And the 1500 test are only half of the test done. Lets take everything with a grain of salt.
  6. Just spent 2 hours on a ferry on the St-Lawrence in Québec. We had to wear mask on the whole crossing. Not Fun. I would not do a cruise were I need to wear mask in public area. I'll use my tent in the backyard instead.
  7. Tell me the number of doctors, Health worker and Senior residence employees who died of regular flu/influenza in the last 6 years? Italy had at least 75 doctors who died of Covid.
  8. Lucky was not what I meant. Figure of speach. I was refering to this article: https://www.cdc.gov/flu/pandemic-resources/1918-pandemic-h1n1.html#:~:text=Read about the 1918 influenza,unique feature of this pandemi
  9. Consider yourself lucky that the virus is different from the 1918 Influenza where most death occured for those under 30, or the Smallpox epidemic of 1884 where children died horrible death.
  10. What if you have airline booked, hotel booked and cruise booked and you test POSITIVE 3 days prior !!!!!! Any insurance will cover you?? make sure you can have a test done on weekends also just in case.
  11. I heard good things also about fare Suisse Note; The Meridien Bora Bora is closing, The Moorea International is closed and the Papeete Tiare Tahiti just announce the closing of their establishment for this week-end. Tahiti hurting.
  12. So 330 000 000 millions doses of vaccine (if one dose only needed) at (lets say) 1 000 000 people a day = 1 year The US will need an army of nurses just to give the shots. Logistical nightmare.
  13. Can't wait to see how they will distribute the avccine. travellers will not be in the first batch.
