Cruising Chatter / Covid on the Celebrity Millennium
« Last post by Host Mike on June 13, 2021, 06:10:46 AM »
"Two passengers sharing a room on a Caribbean cruise ship tested positive this week for Covid-19, triggering safety precautions that enabled some 600 other passengers to continue eating and gambling on the ship."

"The positive cases on the Celebrity Millennium ship, operated by Royal Caribbean Group, RCL -0.60% were detected after nearly all passengers showed proof of vaccination and a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours before embarking from the island of St. Maarten last week. The few people who didn’t show proof of vaccination were children."

I don't understand his logic. What difference does it make if the cruise line asks if a person has been vaccinated or not?
Some people are just to sensitive about protecting their information.

"The legislation waives the Passenger Vessel Services Act for as long as Canada's cruise ban is in place (currently, through February 2022). This would allow foreign-flag ships to transport passengers between Washington state and Alaska."

"Cruise lines still have to get through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's conditional sailing order, and have estimated it takes 60 to 90 days to start up a ship."

You would think that it would be a standard on all cruise lines.

You would think so, but apparently not. It will only take a couple of covid cases to emerge on a cruise and back to square 1.
