  1. Right now I'm only seeing 7 day Equinox cruises leaving May 9th and May 23rd. Are you sure the missing cruises weren't cancelled for some other reason? Maybe they chartered out the Equinox on those other dates like they did to us regarding the Summit in January and February?
  2. So if they didn’t test for asymptotic symptoms in the two mRNA trials, how will they know if they are effective against asymptotic transmissions?
  3. My assumption is if you are correct, then once applicable ships have passed their CDC "no revenue" certification test and are allowed to set sail from/to US ports, then Celebrity will subsequently let us know we will not be allowed to sail on both cruises and will have to choose one or the other. This would be similar to if we tried to book a B2B which was deemed to be illegal by the cruise line based on the PSVA rules.
  4. Ok. It says stay home for 7 days after travel. We can do that after our B2B ends.
  5. I'm not seeing how your highlighted entry suggests one cannot go on a B2B set of cruises. The only thing I'm reading is that they recommend you get tested 3-5 days after your trip ends.
  6. Not taking anything away from the progress made by Pfyzer and Moderna, but hearing about AstraZeneca's progress yesterday was definitely very uplifting, especially from a global perspective. One big reason was this: What’s more, the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine cuts transmission of the virus by reducing the number of asymptomatic infections, the vaccine developers reported. “That’s critical because we know that a lot of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 is from asymptomatic people,” said Gandhi during a Nov. 23 news briefing of the Infectious Diseases Society of America. It’s unclear whethe
  7. Of course, all of this is speculation until the cruise lines that want to sail to US ports again start completing the CDC "no revenue" certification cruises for their applicable ships and subsequently post their official rules for cruising again. Until then we're all just guessing.
  8. That’s definitely a possibility, especially if they also require everyone that has received a vaccine to also get a PCR test prior to boarding. If that was the case, that would definitely be a showstopper if they didn’t offer that service onboard to folks booked on a B2B.
  9. We booked our Alaska B2B directly with X a couple of weeks ago without any issues.
  10. All good concerns. In addition, right now the Millie and Eclipse are off the San Diego coast while the Solstice is in Singapore. Since all ships sailing in and out US ports will first have to take the CDC "no revenue" cruise certification test, our hopes right now are higher for the Millie and Eclipse than the Solstice. Good point! I hope that's not the case. We have no issues with cancelling the cruise before the FPDD. But we would be very sad for the EU folks if the pandemic wasn't over by the summer, especially with news today regarding the AstraZeneca vaccine.
  11. No worries. If X cancels our two "short" Alaska May cruises because of COVID related issues, our next cruise is a 24 day Venice R/T on the Pacific Princess in July. Basically, we've got cruises booked through Nov 2022. So whenever it's deemed safe to cruise again, we're ready. 😁
  12. Hope so. But my guess is we'll probably have to wait until X and/or any of the other cruise lines actually post their preboarding requirements, especially for their initial start-up cruises. But as far as I know, no cruise line planning to sail into or out of US ports have released their specific requirements yet.
  13. Thanks @markeband @Homosassa. From the way It sounds every EUA is different, so we'll just have to sit back and see what limitations, if any, each resulting COVID vaccine EUA will have.
