Good news for all of you booked on the new Silversea Origin Galapagos voyages including the August 21, 2021 Clay escorted or August 28, 2021, Ngaire escorted cruises. No covid testing required if you are fully vaccinated. Hope many other countries follow this lead.

So now CDC advised vaccinated people do not have to take a covid test to fly internationally unless the final destination requires the covid test. Of course almost all countries except Iceland and Ecuador require a test right now. May be other countries as well that are open that I do not know about. Hopefully more countries will follow the same policy.

Just want South Africa to adopt that policy for our safaris in June 2021. Lodges are really helping though they have services that come directly to the lodge to do the test. Results sent by email and printed out by the lodges.

Now if the CDC will come out with less restrictive directives for cruises we would all be happy. An article stated that this might be coming. I certainly hope so!

Press release today may be a better link out there but it is all on this link below. Vaccinations for all crew and guests and a letter to the CDC.

Very well written letter; the onus is now on CDC on why not to approve. Popcorn is ready to watch the back and forth.
