All this good Covid news is wonderful for the cruise lines who are about to promise Nirvana to millions of cashed up supplicants.
We will probably miss the first wave ; I want to see how it all works, what on board irritations are to be borne , and how visited countries treat the vaccinated hordes pouring in to their partially vaccinated country.
Will the present vaccine continue to protect ?
Will we need follow up shots as time passes and what level of protection will we have while awaiting newer miracles?
Things are looking good but the travellers path has some debris to be cleared to allow safe and enjoyable passage.
I'd be choosing the cruise company wisely - making sure you can get a full refund. But one thing's for sure... if people don't book they certainly won't be going! Apparently bookings are doing well.
I booked my first ever cruise - for December - and some of the categories have already sold out. Fares increased for the remaining rooms. (Not to mention airfares which seem to be on the rise for some carriers... VN just put up its prices in the last few days... was $4200-4400 return to Europe, now $5400!)
