  1. What is relevant is this: if given a choice between sailing a vaccinated ship without a mask and sailing an unvaccinated ship wearing a mask, I will choose the vaccinated ship. I won't cruise wearing a mask. BTW, my next cruise is out of NOLA on NCL.
  2. I'm sure New Orleans would welcome another ship. Then there's Alabama too. Georgia? South Carolina?
  3. The actual guidance: Fully vaccinated people can: Resume activities without wearing masks or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance Resume domestic travel and refrain from testing before or after travel or self-quarantine after travel Refrain from testing before leaving the United States for international travel (unless required by the destination) and refrain from self-quarantine after arriving back in the United States Refrain
  4. If that makes you happy. 'Caution' isn't always the best option. Why not just have Grubhub deliver your meals to your home? You won't have to wear a mask. It will be as much fun as having meals served to your suite. Think of the money you'll save.
  5. I ignore the sign. In this area, almost every store has such a sign but no one is enforcing mask wearing. Every day, more and more are ignoring these signs.
  6. One would think so but those opposed to the vaccines are now pushing that we won't know if the vaccines are really safe for many, many years. Like maybe 15 years. There are all sorts of rumors going around that the vaccines are really long term ticking time bombs and that anyone who is vaccinated may die of mysterious ailments ten years from now.
  7. It's very simple why CDC is asking for mask wearing. The guiding principle has always been 'in an overabundance of caution'. The decision makers at CDC won't get in trouble for making a cruise less enjoyable. The decision makers at CDC will get in trouble if they do not require masking and someone becomes infected. BTW, I'm in the 'it's ludicrous' camp. Even more ludicrous is the politician that forbid the bride and groom from dancing together at the wedding reception. One wonders if this politician thinks the bride and groom will be in separate bedrooms their wed
  8. If one does not like the rules, there is no reason why that person cannot campaign to have the rules changed.
  9. We had a rule just as stupid in this area. A person sitting at a bar having a drink could remove his mask. A person standing next to the person sitting at the bar could only briefly remove his mask while taking a sip but then had to replace the mask between sips.
  10. How about while sitting on your balcony? I know it's pleasing to consider the balcony as part of the inside your stateroom but it's not clear that CDC shares that belief. After all, one can be on one's balcony and within six feet of another person sitting on their balcony. Remembering all the debates about how wind can move smoke along the side of the ship, wouldn't wind do the same with the virus? The CDC could easily rule that your balcony is just like any other open area on the ship, therefore wearing a mask there would be required.
  11. Multiple reports that these vaccines will be approved, not just authorized, but approved by the end of this year. The authority for the state being able to compel vaccination—the affirmation of that authority—goes all the way back to a U.S. Supreme Court case in 1905 called Jacobson v. Massachusetts. Hundreds of millions have received the vaccines. Many of those have been previously infected.
  12. If those are accepted as valid, then the government can insist upon knowing your exercise regime and how much broccoli you consume.
  13. Depending upon when you ask Fauci. He's been known to change the numbers. Fauci: "When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75 percent," Fauci said. "Then, when newer surveys said 60 percent or more would take it, I thought, 'I can nudge this up a bit,' so I went to 80, 85." https://www.medpagetoday.com/blogs/vinay-prasad/90445
