As the world starts to open up slowly from the pandemic everyone is starting to get a little more comfortable with traveling and being around family members.

Since the vaccine has been created people will soon be able to fully enjoy themselves without a mask or face covering.

People are getting pretty excited about being free and being able to enjoy the company around them, especially the single people that are ready to go and date again.

Not only the single people are getting excited but, couples and families that have not traveled in a while are ready to take a vacation.

One thing that still has restrictions based on the CDC guidelines is cruise ships this is one thing that will still be canceled until November 1st.

In article from Fox 35 Orlando called "CDC says no-sail order to remain in place until Nov. 1 despite cruise association request" by Megan Ziegler stated

"The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday its no-sail order will remain in place until Nov. 1 for cruise ships despite a request from the Cruise Lines International Association to lift the order several months early. 

The CLIA said it believes cruise lines are ready to sail again from U.S. ports and asked the CDC to allow for a phased resumption by the beginning of July, a timeline correlating with when President Joe Biden said he hopes small groups can begin to gather again.

Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, cruises have resumed or continued in several areas of the world. CLIA’s President and CEO Kelly Craighead said in a statement those voyages have been successful "with industry-leading protocols that have effectively mitigated the spread of COVID-19."

The CDC, however, said its no-sail order in the U.S., which is in effect until Nov. 1, 2021, remains unchanged. "

This may be due to when the coronavirus first started people that were on the cruise ship caught the virus and were sick on the ship for days.

Cruise ships were known as hotspots at the beginning of the pandemic since the coronavirus is spread from person to person via respiratory droplets.

It is important to be cautious and make sure that individuals will be safe if they are going on a cruise ship and plan to be surrounded by other people that they are not related to.

Some cruise ships are offering trips to passengers that can prove that they have been vaccinated, but people fail to realize that although the vaccine does reduce the percentage of receiving the virus there is still a possibility of getting the virus.

A lot of cruise ships are making it mandatory to receive the vaccine in order to board on their cruise ship.

A lot of people are still on the fence about getting the vaccine and others are most definitely for it. I think it depends on the person's lifestyle.

People tend to forget that the coronavirus is still very much around and people are still getting sick from it but, it is not as high as it once was.

With that being said following the federal guidelines is still required and practicing social distancing is still required whether it is three feet or six feet.

We still have kids in school that are catching the coronavirus and having to quarantine at home for fourteen days. So, this is still a real thing that people are forgetting about.

It is hard to accept the fact that life going fully back to normal will take a while because this is not a quick fix.

Are you surprised that the no-sail is extended until November 1st?
