Covid Test to Board Ship

Aloha Everyone,

There were roughly 70 people in line for a Covid test. Everyone was hopeful, determined to be patient and wait. 

An hour passed then another. By the time our turn came, we had waited for 3 hours.

The two of us met a woman who was accompanying her mother. The older lady was returning to Nicaragua after spending the holidays with her family. Nohelia and I had a lively conversation standing 6 feet away with our masks on. We learned so much about her homeland including the Spanish colonial town of Granada.

This testing site were offering two types: PCR and Antigen. They also had RT-PCR as required for Japan. For our requirements, a simple antigen was all we needed. We each paid $100. The verbal result was given in 15 minutes, but the official form required by the cruise company was promised to be emailed to us the following morning.

Aloha -- Cathi
