Default Cruise Line - Covid 19/Vaccine?

Is it required?

I can’t find any hard core documentation, what’s the rules?

Which cruise lines?

Port of call Galveston preferably?

I’m not sure what the rules are but cruses in general are a sketchy idea. They are a breeding ground for diseases other than Covid. Plus you don’t have a way off if you get sick of it. For Covid vaccination requirements check the country’s you plan on visiting.

Almost all cruise lines are requiring a vaccine for now. This may change in the next year or so. One thing I think is funny is how you’re not hearing about people getting sick on the current cruises, although it’s definitely happening. It would go against their “95% Vaccinated Requirement”

Unless it’s changed recently, all of the ones sailing from Galveston required vaccination.

Holland America does, plus just got an email from them saying our Alaska cruise in Sept you will have to wear a mask because a spike of covid in Alaska. Told the wife I will not be going unless they lift the mask mandate.

If you click around on each brands webpage it’s findable.
Or at least it used to be.
We cancelled 2 booked cruises at the beginning of this plandimic over it.
Funny is when you’ll hear a story of a cruise outbreak of Covid even though all onboard are super duper protected with the jab.

We booked a cruise to sail way back in summer of 2020...COVID shut down the cruise lines so we didn't go. When they started requiring the vax, we said we would not be going and they said we could cancel because of a change in policy. But then the cruise line just kept crediting our money toward future cruises and we could not get the refund...we were not going with the vax requirement and I now have no desire to go on a cruise with the possibility of having to wear a mask the whole time, or worse, getting stuck on the boat with a bunch of COVID cases. Finally, just a couple of weeks ago, we got MOST of our money back. I had resigned the fact that we'd just have to eat that money, so I was glad we got some back. Just be aware about putting down big deposits if you have any concerns or hesitations.

It’s funny that the floating buffets are placing “health” requirements on its passengers

We are headed to pick our kids up from their dad, they just arrived back in port this morning. None of them have been vaccinated, they just had to have a test done within 24 hours of boarding last Saturday. Not sure which cruise line, but it was out of Galveston

If you research the vax side effects, it should bother you a lot more than the mask, all I’m going to say

Neighbors just returned from a Cruise to Alaska. Negative Covid test was required before cruise. The whole family returned home with Covid. Probably not a good time to go on a cruise.

we went on RC out of Florida in Aug 2021, and no vaccine requirement. Only other thing we had to do what test prior to boarding, test on day 4, test to get back in country. Easy peasy.

My brother and his wife too. They both were sick for a couple of weeks. And they have had the "vaccine" and all the boosters.

How many people where un vaxxed? Or vaxxed? In your party
My aunt died with OG CV19 blood clots in 12/23/20
I got vaxxed and yet caught OMNI in 1/7/22
Trying to figure out what value of protection the new vaccine has

Yup. Same with some friends of ours. Got back a few days ago from carnival cruise and positive. Dunno about mask requirements but had to be vaxd and/or test b4 you got on the boat. Erbody knows the vax won't prevent it. Thinking they've had it b4 and the vax will maybe take the edge off. They cruise alot so I guess they figured heck with it...lets go.

Maybe the vaxxed that are getting sick , need a third or fourth booster… I’m just glad the cruise lines are requiring it to keep everyone safe.

Coworker just got back from a cruise the week before last. Three days afterwards his wife tested positive and two days later he tested positive. Everyone had to be tested within 72hrs before the cruise and everyone had to be vaccinated in order to get on the boat.

Caught it or “ tested positive” for it?

Wow, just wow.
I’d say “the prevention plan” is working awesome.
Maybe it’s already be in the water prior to them getting there.
Might be some Monkey pox swimming around in the holding tanks too, they’d better get checked for that while they’re at it.

I was told they have covid. They found out when they got back so I assume they got sick, can't think of another reason to test once you get back home. I haven't talked directly to them.
