Our current plan is to break out in April with a trip to US and then back to WDW in July. Time will tell, but we're optimistic.

That said, we wouldn't go anywhere near a cruise right now. Between the higher potential of infection and the possibility of being stuck in a state-room for weeks on end, that's simply a bridge too far!

Vaccine to me makes it more likely there will be cruises this summer. Probably still a lot of restrictions, but at least we can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

With soaring COVID numbers and this cruise ship having a COVID outbreak, Iím not expecting cruising to start any time soon. Maybe summer at the earliest, but those are for the guinea pigs.

We just saw the 'Cruise with Dave and Ben' YouTube video about this. They are on board. They had 2 earlier videos from the same sailing and it seem the ship did everything right to try to prevent this from happening. But you don't know if everyone on board quarantined before leaving the UK.

That's the problem. There is no way cruising works without herd immunity or guaranteed treatment. It's an aerosolized virus with a lag-time before symptoms appear or tests show infection. You can do everything right and still get it if you are in a room with other people. Protection mitigates spread, not eliminates.

I think most here know I desperately want all this to be over and I don't have a problem with going out to masked, socially distant things, but when it comes to cruise ships as closed systems of people in each others space for several days at least, one infect person will most likely create an outbreak.

Agree. This thing is just too contagious. Just another anecdote from someone I know: he believed he caught it from the hospital he was working at. He attended a small birthday party and infected everyone there. It wasn't until several days later he started experiencing symptoms and was able to get a rapid test that confirmed infection. He reached out to everyone he came into contact with but by that time he had already infected over 10 people. He described the symptoms as the worst flu ever and ended up getting steroids but avoided hospitalization and has recovered.

Given that it can spread so easily from pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic people that may not be picked up by testing, cruising is just too risky right now. Fingers crossed a vaccine can be made widely available sooner than later.

We have a cruise booked for April 30, 2021. I also booked BLT for the same time because, truthfully, I don't see this cruise happening. We've already received an email from DCL saying we have until 15 days prior to cruise date to cancel so that indicate they don't think the cruise is going to happen either.

We had a mid July 2021 cruise and moved it a long time ago for the same reason. General public vaccinations aren't slated to start until the spring. I agree, that probably will not happen. We moved our cruise to Nov 2021, but I am not confident that I want to go then either.

My dream cruise is booked for the end of July. I am SO hoping it is a go! As a back up we also have one booked at the end of November and my sister and her husband are also booked.
