A few days later they finally lowered the cabash. With almost all Asian, Oceania and African nations closed because of COVID issues, it was announced that, after leaving French Polynesia, we are making an about-face and heading back to LA. The cruise line is allowing those who wish to disembark and get a prorated refund. The balance of the passengers will get a discount and continue on with a medley consisting of a Mexican cruise, a Panama Canal run, a Caribbean cruise, an Atlantic crossing, a comprehensive Mediterranean cruise, a Baltic cruise and a crossing back to New York City. (While I haven't done a rigorous check, it seems to be hitting every European country with a seashore except Ukraine, Cyprus and Monaco, as well as throwing in places like Israel, Turkey and Morrocoys). Not as interesting as the original itinerary, but better than sitting around at home and dodging COVID.

Understandably, despite “knowing” that our itinerary was unlikely, there are many who are upset with the change, some of who will take the bail-out options of disembarking when the ship hits Los Angeles or Miami as it heads eastwards.


COVID infection rates are now plummeting in New York. You may be safer at home.
