Want to join Mickey and the crew on a relaxing sail of the seas?
Better get jabbed first.
Currently, all adult guests are required to have a COVID vaccination before boarding. However, starting in January, every passenger five years of age and up will have to be vaccinated against COVID in order to board any Disney Cruise ship.
The cruise line issued a statement on Wednesday saying negative COVID tests will no longer be acceptable and requirements will go into effect on January 13, 2022.
Currently, Disney Cruise Line continues to require all vaccine-eligible Guests (based on US eligibility requirements) to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, as defined by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at the time of sailing. This will be a requirement for all Guests (US and international) ages 5 and up for sailings beginning on or after January 13, 2022. Guests who are not vaccine-eligible because of age must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result (paid for by the Guest) taken between 3 days and 24 hours before their sail date. Guests ages 5 through 11 may complete this testing requirement in lieu of being fully vaccinated for sailings that depart before January 13, 2022. Guests 4 years of age and under must complete the testing requirements. The test should be a NAAT test, rapid PCR test or lab-based PCR test. Rapid antigen tests are not accepted.
The cruise industry has had a sputtered reopening this year but has been able to largely operate without too much incident. Back in August, CNN breathlessly reported on an “outbreak” of COVID on a Carnival cruise. However, despite the dire reporting, only 27 people tested positive for the virus. There were no reports of serious symptoms or hospitalizations.
In another aspect of the story that should give everyone, including Disney, pause when it comes to mandates — all 27 people on that cruise were vaccinated.
So, Disney and every other institution that has sold out to the cult of COVID is forcing children — who face nearly zero risk for COVID — to be injected with a substance that doesn’t stop the spread of COVID and doesn’t prevent one from contracting COVID in order to participate in public life.
It makes no sense. Sadly, merely asking for logic is considered heresy these days.
