I've felt the Magic each time I visit!

I voted for March. I just don't see the CDC greenlighting cruising out of American ports until spring at the earliest.The winners will get the most lame printable sticker I can create, sent into their PM Box. What you choose to do with my worthless art is your choice. Please do not attack an individuals reasons for a start date, we all like our coffee a different way.
Yeah, I must admit CDC has a tight grip on cruising but since Disney has spoken to a few places about a possible return I just don't know if something is in the wind now. I think CDC is entertaining ideas, just not sure what they will agree to for the future.I voted for March. I just don't see the CDC greenlighting cruising out of American ports until spring at the earliest.
That said, I once had a March cruise booked & have since changed it to December '21, as I wouldn't count on a March cruise.
I'm on a Jan Dream for the first time so I hope so.I’m saying January, let’s start 2021 off right!
I'm going to push those boats out to sea myself if we have to wait to 2022!I'm saying April. That's as hopeful as I can be. I would be surprised if it's any sooner, and I would be shocked if it goes on throughout 2021.
Agreed. I don't see a link between the two, either. I'm not one of those who foresees a safe & effective vaccine as being right around the corner.My gut says April 2021. I think they will go before a vaccine.
Agree. And all pandemics do end eventually. While the virus will be here, the pandemic will not. The timing is the question along with the vaccine. April is my pick.Agreed. I don't see a link between the two, either. I'm not one of those who foresees a safe & effective vaccine as being just right around the corner.
I think a full year of cruising being banned will be about all the CDC will be able to justify, and the political & social pressure for them to allow cruising to resume will prevail by spring.
If cruising does start before a vaccine, here's my worry.My gut says April 2021. I think they will go before a vaccine.
And will other countries allow their citizens to travel to the US? I know WDW is about 18-25% international visitors depending on exchange rates. While DCL out of PC is probably sustainable on similar ratio, you also have to account for reduced US demand.Will other counties allow US citizens into their country.
One of the points of sailing reduced capacity leaves open rooms to isolate those who are suspected of being ill. Anyone suspected of being ill would be quarantined to an open room, so no different than those suspected of being ill on land. That thread about the port of Galveston’s conversations with DCL said DCL was aiming for a capacity of 70% which sounds about right since even the Diamond Princess with no protocols in place for 2 weeks had only 20% positive. So DCL with 30% of rooms open, gives a buffer.What will happen when (not if) someone gets Covid onboard? Will the ship quarantine everyone and change course in the middle of the ocean to disembark those infected?
There needs to be an effective treatment a-la Tamiflu AND a way to contain the spread without forcing the entire ship to quarantine.
I just don't see it and it just saddens me.
