We hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Here are some updates that we noticed this week.

  • Carnival Cruise Lines has canceled departures out of Miami and Port Canaveral for November 2020.
  • Quantum of the Seas sailings have been canceled through March 2021.
  • Hurricane Delta was a great worry but left the resorts in the Yucutan Peninsula mostly unscathed.
  • Many of the resorts in sun destinations are opening back up this fall, and some of them are including insurance when you book.  As always, with insurance, in-depth scrutiny is required.
  • Covid-19 has inspired a travel innovation – with people more able to work and even attend school remotely, some travelers are packing up their families and working in a chosen destination.  This can work for short-term vacations, but in some destinations normal requirements have been waived and it is possible to stay for a much longer period.  Fees and restrictions may apply…but if our government changes the status of our travel advisories, I can see this being a thing for many of us.  We’ll be here to help!
  • CLIA and member cruise lines commit to requiring  universal Covid – 19 testing prior to embarkation for both guests and crew.
