Cruising Is Back, and Its Never Looked the Same
It’s official! Cruise lines are back in business after a year of hiatus. The news has been received with mixed emotions around the world. While some folks can’t wait to cram themselves into floating Petri dishes again,
others have vowed never to set foot on one ever again.
But hey, let’s focus on the positive side of things – cruising is indeed back!
If you’ve always wanted a taste of what it would be like to live on Titanic (minus that unfortunate ending), now might be your chance!
Increased Health Protocols for Safety
Thanks to COVID 19 cruise ships captains had they decks as busy as strip malls during Black Friday.
They were forced rethink their hygiene practices for obvious reasons–which means passengers won’t get anywhere near norovirus or salmonella unless they bring them aboard themselves.
That being said, don’t forget that every surface is still covered in germs so wash those hands people!
Anyway, frequent handwashing isn’t all. You’ll need proof of vaccination before stepping onboard although there’s no guarantee against conspiracy theorists brewing new ideas with each passing moment.
You weren’t planning on getting vaccinated? Well sorry darling but it seems cruises aren’t designed for anti-vaxxers so find another way to use up all that vacation leave.
Entertainment & Dining
If you think cruising only offers endless buffets and questionable entertainment like carnival games, terrible singing or some other sort of public embarrassment you’d be right but let’s not forget the golden days where whatever went down in international waters stayed there.
Quite frankly what happens on board stays off-board would give Vegas a run for its money.
But since things have changed with people now having access to CCTV footage, ship security will likely lead them straight to your grandma dancing provocatively after too many daiquiris – screaming “YOLO!”
So chances are these days most lines tend towards G-rated programming as far as onboard entertainment goes.
Your main optionsSponsored Product? Movies by the pool,and Broadway shows performed weekly while also pretending this isn’t an attempt at making up for their 2020 losses.
If none of those tickle your fancy then maybe it is indeed time for Grandma cuts loose once more.
As far as dining goes, cruise ships offer menus spanning multiple countries around-the-world which means food poisoning just got fresher!
Whether you’re a foodie seeking refined tastes such as lobster bourguignon or prefer something like burgers don’t worry they’ll snuff out any gastro-intestinal symptoms before we even reach landfall!
Then again gas canisters must surely occupy much space during each voyage
I mean who cares about climate change when bellyfuls matter?
For finer dine,maybe try bringing along few stick-ons wouldn’t hurt
The Ports We’ll Visit
It seems sometimes residents aren’t ready for our unique brand of flirting wrapped into pseudo anthropology lectures (whereas true citizens know this is part of the experience).
That being said, pick ports like St. Thomas or Santorini from your cruise ships itinerary because they’re ready for tourists and—more important than anything else survived a pandemic we all helped spread!
So there you have it – cruising 2021 style! You’ll still get incredible views from the deck, unlimited food access,and round-the-clock entertainment.
What’s more? It might just be seen as an act of rebellion to go ahead and zoom off into international waters on “floating Petri dishes”when society pressurizes us in healthy isolation.
The cherry on top: few days at sea hence better equipped with stockpile of excuses when you return back to work.
All things considered finding one’s sea legs again may not sound particularly exciting-until knee-deep cocktail urns start flowing-and yet cruise lines are coming out guns blazing taking bookings left,right,middle,& everywhere imaginable!
Now if only those tanned ancient looking bingo-playing seniors could understand how a hashtag works perhaps exploring new destinations wouldn’t seem as daunting!
Just hop on board,follow protocols optimistically munching away every time precaution bells ring while reminiscing happy travel memories before
‘Ladies & Gentlemen hands up who isn’t feeling well?’
On second thought,hedge against that investment cause virus loves wrecking ocean voyages.
Enjoy but do so responsibly!!!
