How about those that are vaccinated and test positive?

Vaccinated people I would feel bad for, but not the unvaccinated ones.

I “think” they said at various points that if an antigen test at the port comes up positive, they retest with a PCR to confirm. 

That’s good to hear.

This does suck, just another way RCI continues to heap crap on the very folks that are making their “return” even a reality🙈. Seriously, what’s wrong with these folks?  The constant three steps forward and four steps back shows a terribly unstable and extremely unprofessional management which is unsettling for people that have $$$$ on the line for paid in full cruise purchases.  There’s no denying they are facing challenges however we haven’t exactly had an easy ride either and frankly I think we should be able to expect more from a company like RCI.  This yo-yo routine is getting really old so make a decision RCI and stick with it and stop jerking people around!
 

It just ain’t nice!👿

Great messaging if you want to have fully vaccinated cruises.

I know several people who got the VAX then got COVID.

As long as it takes to give you another test

My husband is in construction.  When his guy go out of state to say, Illinois, the client usually makes them take a COVID test before they go.  Many of my husbands employees test positive, then go to a different test site and test negative.  Those test are nothing more than smoke and mirrors.  I don't trust them.

What the heck is Royal thinking? If I was booked on one of these cruise I would cancel. I'm vaxxed, will have a test done to get to the island, then take another test at check in. Keep you cruises Mr Fain and Mr Bayley. It's just not worth it.

I dont buy that in the slightest. They were fully vaccinated meaning 2 weeks after 2nd shot? To know “several people “ you should play the lottery then.

2 passengers on an MSC cruise  just  tested positive for Covid.

This isn't the first time covid case(s) occurred on MSC sailings    But they seem to handle it well.    I am not sure how Italy is doing with vaccinated their residents.

yes, it does happen.    I know a good friend that was vaccinated that got covid from his teenage son who was not vaccinated.   my friend only had very mild symptoms and tested negative 10 days after his first positive test.    It happens.     the vaccine is working as it should.   It's not a 100% guarantee of not contracting the virus.

Now comes word from the current Celebrity Millennium cruise that two guests from the same cabin tested positive, presumably on the tests being done to comply with the CDC requirement for international flights.  They have been moved to an isolation cabin.  This is reported on Twitter by a cruise media figure who is on that cruise, Stewart Chiron (aka The Cruise Guy).

I don’t know Colorado Babe, but I’m one of them. Got my 2nd shot in Feb. 

I honestly don’t think the CDC will have true numbers of breakthrough cases. People may not have symptoms, or like me, mild cold like symptoms. They could be out living their life, thinking it won’t get me, I’m vaccinated. I think the variants still need to be studied more, which they are doing.
The only reason I tested was because my daughter tested positive, and a couple days later I had a stuffy nose. Never thought I would get it. I think the number of breakthrough cases may be more than anybody really knows. If my daughter hadn’t tested positive, I probably would have thought cold or allergies and been out doing my thing without a mask because the CDC said I could.
My cruises aren’t until next March, and those may not even go, since they are out of Australia.

I receive FDA emails  and one that just came says to stop using Innova rapid covid test.  I am not familiar aside from pcr test.  I just signed up years ago for FDA updates and this one came.

Exactly,  I and most of my family would never have been tested back last fall but we had contact.  All positive and antibodies.  None ill.  I know 3 different sets of people (no contact and don't live in sames states) one partner received the moderna and about 2-3 weeks after fully vaccinated the partner (and kids in one case) all got it.  Just odd.  the other partners were not out and about basically home people.

Every one of these will be a story.  Were they vaccinated?

Well, that’s disheartening. And we know how well isolation worked on Diamond Princess.

As I understand, Celebrity Millennium sailings from St Maarten are comprised of fully vaccinated adult passengers.  Maybe exemption for under age 16 passengers.

You have a 0.01% chance of getting covid after being vaccinated.

You have a much, much higher chance of getting a false positive after taking a covid test.

False. 94.5% chance. 
 

and with that 5.5% chance, it’s just not worth it to Royal.

Great messaging if you want to have fully vaccinated cruises.

MSC is doing the exact same thing in England they are making all passengers both vaccinated and not take a COVID test pre-boarding.
