    Any idea if a Monkeypox and Covid vaccination card will be required to get on the ship?
    They give you a punch card. Catch Covid, Monkeypox and another of your choosing (my vote is for Bird Flu) before getting on the ship. 3 punches gives you a free Sorrentos. :P
    What a deal! I’m gonna catch all of them at least three times, and get as many shots at possible. See you onbroad!

    A similar question was asked on Facebook.

    The answer they gave was:

    "We will need to follow Cruise Line regulations, info about which ship and which Cruise Line we are sailing on will be released in the near future."

    I'll just comment the same thing I said in the Facebook group: nobody knows now what the covid-related travel regulations and vaccination cards will be in January 2023 because it's over eight months from now. The US announced late September 2021 so about 8 months ago that vaccinated travellers from certain countries including the EU are allow into the US from November 9th, 2021. Several EU countries have changed the rules regarding vax card validity this spring. The card is valid 270 days after two jabs but so far they haven't made any decisions regarding the validity of the EU vaccination card after receiving a booster jab. So what could count as "fully vaccinated" in January, I don't know.

    For example Estonia at some point required that masks need to be used indoor in public areas on ships sailing under the Estonian flag but the ships of same cruise lines sailing under Swedish or Finnish flag did not have such requirement. Then in April when the covid19 situation was already much better, the mask mandate ended. Rules can change on a short notice, starting immediately or only a few days after the announcement.

    So it's really difficult so say right now what the entry rules into the US are in January for EU citizens, Australians, Japanese or any other foreigners. Also it's difficult to say what kind of mask and vaccine rules specific cruise lines will have in January. Probably at least a lot of WASHY WASHY before eating :D :D

    Yeah, it's certainly a fool's errand to try and predict what protocols will be in place over 8 months from now. Hopefully we'll be at a point where there is no more protocol in place by the end of January.
    I should get around to updating my signature

    My wife and I looked into a cruise in February. Proof of vaccination was required at that time.

    I agree with taraimaro though. There's no way to know until we get there. Who knows what the politicians are going to decree in any country.

    We now have dates and a departure port....and there was MUCH rejoicing. :heavydrink:

    Now I'm going to haunt the Royal Caribbean board over at CruiseCritic, because at some point Royal will cancel Freedom of the Seas' current Jan. 30th sailing, and the whining and tears will make me nod and grin. :lol: (I'd say there's a 95% chance that we'll be on the Freedom.)

    Regarding COVID protocols, Royal has already confirmed that their current voluntary COVID safety protocols will remain in place through September. There is no way we can know what the future will hold.
    Although I'm fully vaxxed and boosted (for travel purposes), I'm hoping the vaccine requirement is dumped but the pre-cruise test requirement can remain in place (72-hour advance). After all, the vaccine doesn't prevent anyone from catching or transmitting it, but pre-cruise testing would at least cut down any currently active cases.

    I agree with you, Pellaz. I just returned from ProgPower, and the sheer numbers of people who ended up with Covid is mindblowing. I am amazed that I came back unscathed (although I did wear a mask 98% of the time). Negative tests within 24-48 hours would be the way to go, IMO. The thought of getting sick on the cruise is unsettling for me, but I don't want to miss it and I really don't want to wear a mask all of the damn time.

    Pandemics come and pandemics go, but one thing will never change.

    The Skipper will do what he wants, when he wants, and we will suck it up and deal with it :P
