GoldStatustravler Posted December 31, 2021 Share Posted December 31, 2021 Just got off the Allure of the Seas holiday tour. The Captain announced that 24 passengers and 3 1/2% of crew tested positive for Covid and were being isolated. Our ship was not full and about 75% capacity. All areas on ship except outdoors are mandatory mask use. No exceptions anywhere inside except your room. No one gets on except under 12 without proof of vaccine card. Allure unloaded infected crew members onto Onassis of the Seas in CocoCay on last day of cruise. Boat still has Yellow CDC status and was denied entry to St Thomas and St Kitts. We cruised all the way down there and back only to cruise for a total of 4 days at sea. Only stopped in Nassau and CocoCay which was NOT on our tour. Anyone getting on a cruise ship today will most likely be denied entry into almost all Caribbean ports except Nassau (ship is flagged there) and CocoCay (owned by RC). Just a word about CocoCay. You will find that everything except sitting on the beach is EXPENSIVE! All most all activities are over $100 per person with several close to $200 and to rent a floating cabana is $2,100! Also, CocoCay is NOT very handicap accessible, They require you to push a beach wheelchair in soft sand almost everywhere on the island and this is difficult and require pushing long distances. They have very limited hard surface areas for regular wheelchairs, power chairs or scooters and to use them it will cost you $200 at the beach club! I wouldn't recommend any type of wheelchair bound individuals to go on CocoCay. The Allure of the Seas is an amazing ship with plenty of space, great shows and extremely stable. It was a big step up from our last cruise on Anthem of the Seas. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
