Abolish Vaccine Requirements


Recommended Posts

My wife & I have several cruise next vouchers we cannot currently use due to your current regulation requiring covid vaccination. We both know people who have been injured or who have died from the vaccine, conversely we personally don't know anyone who has got covid. We're old, very healthy, & resent being forced to take an experimental vaccine. If you can't or won't comply, how may we get a refund for these deposits?

This topic is very political and shouldn't be. I work in medicine and the vaccines are great. Over 1 million Americans dead from Covid; that's just not good. Regardless, I don't mind if some other cruise line goes all antivax and antivaxxers cruise there. I won't argue with their decision; I just won't shop there.

I like that NCL requires the vaccines, would prefer if they required at least one booster, and knowing those onboard are vaccinated makes me much more likely to cruise with NCL. Keep up the good work NCL!

Rubbish, jab does nothing, explain why you can still get the vid and pass it on after being jabbed??? Also cdc just released new data stating that teens are having heart issues, and you call yourself a doctor🤣 if your jabbed what ya worried about. Do you know that TB is just as contagious and dealt and kills millions each year around the world🤦‍♀️

Too bad that this is political. I feel badly for those who are so very angry. I feel worse for the dead and their families. I like that NCL requires the vaccines, would prefer if they required at least one booster, and knowing those onboard are vaccinated makes me much more likely to cruise with NCL. Keep up the good work NCL!

Did anyone worry years ago when people had the flu and were on cruise ships.  This is all political and government is using psychology on people.  My entire family except my self and husband did not take the vaccine and a few members of my family got covid.  Did people also worry when they were flying on a plane, or walking through the mall.  Now all of a sudden COVID is like controlling our lives.  Wake up people.  I welcome the flu and allergy season.

The vaccine is a bunch of bull and should not be pushed on anyone . I’m fully vaccinated and had covid and my daughter who is unvaccinated never caught it ( hmmm) Leave people alone . We love NCL abut they were never concerned when guests cough , sneeze and grab food with hands at buffets . Guests were never screened for the deadly flu before embarking / enough Is enough . For those that are vaccinated and want everyone else vaccinated so they feel safe - do you really believe in the vaccine ? If you did then you would not care about others ! Think about it

Audra, I would have to agree with you 100%, thus requirement of vaccination is bull shit, the cruse and being controlled by the CDC, which is full of so much confusion.  They are throwing things out there to see what sticks.  Here is one of their quotes"In March, the agency then dropped its warning against cruise ship travel for the first time in two years, telling Americans to "make their own risk assessment when choosing to travel on a cruise ship, much like they do in all other travel settings." Come on, who are yhe people writing these rules.  It make the organization look really stupid.  The cruise industry need to make their own decision. It's like what "Audra" said did anyone worry about a sneeze, cough years ago.  Now all of a sudden people are freaking out when you sneeze or cough.  I sneeze at least 15 times now, it's allergy season. People wake up, the government is fucking with your mind. If we continue like this, we are fuck big time.  Look at the shit we are in right now. Biden is doing a great job in putting this country in a great depression.  This is going to get worse, until we say ENOUGH. Come on people, wake up, stand up to what really make sense.The cruse industry, you guys need to stop with the BS, you guys are going to cripple the industry.  U have spent BILLIONS on new ship and cannot said with full capacity.

Well, we have decided to postpone our NCL October 2022 cruise due to the fact they require over 12 year olds to be vaccinated. Me and my wife are both fully vaccinated, but our 12 and 9 year old kids are not. To be honest, we booked the cruise thinking we would just go ahead and get our son vaccinated for the sole purpose of the cruise - but then after thinking about it we have realized this is totally wrong! I mean, if I got my son vaccinated then it had a negative effect on him I would never forgive myself - all for the sakes of a 7 day cruise! 

So thanks to NCL's peace of mind policy we can move the cruise to a later date and won't lose our deposit, BUT if this policy does not change in say one years time for the rescheduled cruise we will have to accept that the deposit is lost.

I agree with previous posters in that I think its ridiculous that all cruise lines are requiring over 12's to be fully vaccinated. COVID is here to stay. They didn't have a policy in place that said you had to have the flu vaccine did they?? Total BS!!

The cruise lines are just trying to keep uninformed bubbleheads like you safe and alive. It is also my business if you contract covid and spread it to me and all over a cruise vessel. Yes it's sad it's become political. Keep up your good work Cruise lines. Thanks for doing your best to keep us safe and your crew and vessels in service!

It's amazing that people like you were not afraid of crusing when there was a cold virus going around, now all of a sudden, everyone is afraid of someone  sneezing, caught or a fart.  Travel on a plane is worse than being on a cruise ship.  It's nuckle heads like you that has cause this huge fear of standing next to someone who caught,sneeze and blow their nose. (That person must have covid).

The cruise Industry were bitten so bad when the pandemic began, they have to do what the government tells them, even though the CDC has washed their hands of vaccination requirements. Did you forget the CDC lower the level for that industry or old age kicked in. Or wait you must be a sheep.

Get a life or soon you will experience what government control is all about. Especially Socialism,it's coming. 

But you have your beliefs and so do others. Look where we are today, the great USA is turning to shit and we face shortage in baby food.

The truth of the matter is the cruise industry travel requirements/vaccination requirements vary by port of departure and the ports of call.  The general consensus is everyone who wish to cruise should be vaccinated for the safety of everyone on board.  NCL has no control over these requirements.   Until such a time that these requirements are no longer in place, the crew and passenger will just have to comply.

DeanneB, you need to do some additional research on current crusing.  Apparently, there are a few crusing company that are allowing unvaccinated on the cruse.  However, they have to show a negative test, the logic is 95% vaccinated and 5 % unvaccinated.  The approval is made when you make your reservation.  The cruise Industry was given a bad rap when covid broke out. " https://www.thestreet.com/investing/is-it-safe-to-go-on-a-cruise".

Read this article all, and hopefully we all will understand.  Remember this a  multi billion industry.  

Why are we not being so critical on people flying on a plane, that is more in a close quarter than the cruise ship.

But so much fear has been said, that when you sneeze, cough people look at you as if you are dangerous. 

Think, God gave us a brain use it, not the government tell you what should be done.

This virus is not going over, it is around until 2024.

I know, the requirement keeps on changing.  We can expect these requirements and restrictions to ease up as the situation is more controlled.  Right now basically the decision is up to the CDC and the different ports of call and countries they visit.  To maintain this billion dollar industry they have to comply.  Here's hoping this will get more settled.

While I do not agree that they should drop the requirement the vaccine. I should say that I went 2+ years without getting the VID. I just got back from the cruise and got it while I was on the cruise with mostly fully vaccinated people. I think they should relax the requirement, so people like Charles can cruise. If you haven't gotten a booster in 6-12 months than you are just like someone who hasn't been vaccinated.

The sad part is, this is not a political topic. it is a medical topiic. And people should have health autonomy. Stop using the term anti vaxer, it's just a flamatory term.  People and doctors that do not subscribe to a mandate are not anti vax, they are pro health autonomy. And if it satifies your crazy need for people to take in that stuff, then perhaps Cruise lines should offer some optional cruises. For those that need a mandate, you can choose a vaccinated cruise and those of us that prefer a different cholce for health, should have an optional cruise as well. Millions of people died from covid needlessly. due to the cover up of early treatment. Perhaps the cruise lines should look into the successful treatment protocols of Dr. Peter McCullough, Dr. Pierre Kory, Dr. Robert Malone and many other doctors and have those treatments readily available on the ships.

Well, my family was on a Royal cruise on Oasis, August 21-28. My wife and myself are vaccinated 2X and boosted 2X, and my daughter’s family is vaccinated as well.. last week of summer and the ship was PACKED… no one in my family had any symptoms at all… on the car ride home, my wife didn’t feel well.. it was a Sunday and she used one of our Covid tests and was POSITIVE for Covid.. she did a tele-doc thing and was prescribed Paxlovid.. I had a bad case of Covid last year and my antibodies saved me from Covid… BTW, our oldest daughter also tested POSITIVE.., We cancelled our remaining cruises for the year… Yet, everyone had to produce an antigen test.. despite all precautions, my family was Covid victims.. take what you want from this, but we are NOT sailing in the coming months… best of luck, but BEWARE….
