3. Thing is....most fully vaccinated ppl are cautious and I would venture to bet unwilling to get on a

Cruise ship that doesn’t require proof of vaccination. That leaves the rest of the unvaccinated idiots that will quickly board and just as quickly infect each other..and suddenly you have a ship full of sick passengers

They never learn!!
