Don’t feel bad. In fact, we have some of your citizens entering Canada under false pretences to escape the states. As it stands right now there are very few Canadians who want to cross the border and want to see it remain closed for some time.
As for cruising soon, that is a wait and see. I was told by someone, here on CC, that in March that Covid would be “behind us” by June. We are now into July and the cruise lines are still repatriating their crew. Supposedly Bahamas Paradise Cruise lines is starting this month. However, I would not call them a major player in the industry, not to mention they have yet to push away from the dock.
As for being allowed to leave, we can. Europe is welcoming us as of July 1st. We can also head to the Caribbean. We just need to follow their rules for travellers. We are far from isolated here.
