  1. What airline is requiring a test? Usually it's the country you are entering requiring the test. Check their specific requirements. I agree with the previous poster. Fly in a couple extra days, and a test at a recommended vendor. Your hotel, or the cruise line will have recommended vendors.
  2. I suspect the various insurance companies would not be supportive of intentional and pre-planned violations of law by Captains and cruise lines...no matter how trivial some on Cruise Critic feel the law might be.
  3. Canada has similar cabotage laws. They just don't apply to this situation.
  4. First of all, come over to the Cruise Air board here: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/77-cruise-air/ because this is really about flying, not so much Amsterdam. Tons of expertise there. Second, a good, common way to look at comparative flights is Matrix ITA, here: https://matrix.itasoftware.com/ Covid has messed up flight schedules, but taking out Covid as best I can, an using Matrix, "practicing" on this coming August, it looks like Delta gives you a number of choices. Also American does a few. In general, I would p
  5. I can only go on my Hawaii experience, which has a similar requirement, but don't know exactly how similar it is. And probably nobody knows for sure now because not very many people are flying internationally right now. Again, based on my Hawaii experience, I would get one of the very rapid response tests 72 hours prior to your scheduled take off from your last US airport. You should get results within 20 or 30 minutes, and you print them off at home in plenty of time. For Hawaii, you then load the results into your account on the Hawaii website, but your printed copy w
  6. How many should they do in trials? The 30-40K is industry standard for Phase 3.
  7. The longer cruises aren't available until after Nov 1, 2021, when the current ban on longer cruises expires.
  8. It has been discussed here many times...and the few cruises that have operated in the last few months have all had this requirement.
  9. Due to it's special exemptions, it is very unlikely its going anywhere.
  10. Have taken a couple of repositioning cruises, although not on the route you mention. There are no port stops? Really? I suspect there are some, perhaps in some pretty interesting places...Iceland? Greenland? Canada? Anyway, MANY people here on Cruise Critic LOVE repo cruises, and the sea days they entail. But if sea days are not for you, then probably you shouldn't be going. Seas can be rough, smooth, or probably someplace in between, no matter where you are...in the middle of the Atlantic, the Pacific, the Indian Ocean, you name it. Seas are not predictable until a few
  11. There is huge volumes of info on the Hawaii Safe Travels website, here: https://safetravelshawaii.com/
  12. If you post this on the RCI board, here: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/51-royal-caribbean-international/ you will likely find others in your situation and see if they have workarounds or solutions.
  13. Can't speak for Princess air, but Florence is definitely doable on one stop from Seattle (I guessed where you were flying out of, and used July). You can either fly through Amsterdam, or Paris.
  14. If you ride the ferry, you can take your car with you. I think that was the point.
