    NCL Changes Covid Protocols

    Hi All

    I have shamelessly pinched this from the other place:

    Norwegian Cruise Line Ship Changes COVID-19 Testing, Masking Requirements After Omicron Variant Discovered (cruisecritic.co.uk)

    In summary mask wearing introduced and more testing after 17 covid cases found on the Breakaway.

    How long these extra protocols will remain in place??

    How long is a piece of string. I thought I would have been good to go late February but if anything, it’s got worse.

      We are not safe until the whole world is safe.

      We need to vaccinate the world.

      I am still hoping the increase in the number of mutations in the Omicron variant has reduced the severity of the virus - maybe scientifically illogical but we should know soon.

      Until the entry regulations for my preferred destinations are relaxed, I am content to vacation closer to home.

        The US cruise rules have been pretty lax for some time.

        Italy has upgraded green pass rules, negative test not accepted for a lot of activities now.

          South Africa, America, Germany and Norway all say that the omicron mutation does not cause serious symptoms and usually does not require hospitalisation.

            I thought thinks were looking very good at the end of October when we booked our late November Iona cruise but it has proved to be not so.

            After sailing our government changed the rules for overseas visitors twice and Portugal suddenly required a lateral flow test with very little notice.

            As you say we need to vaccinate the whole world to be safe and that will not happen for many a year.
