Hi Clarrie,

You may find this helpful.  It is taken from a recent article posted on Cruise Critic following Celebrity Millenium's first post-covid sailing in the Caribbean.

"We visited three ports -- Aruba, Curacao and Barbados -- and in two, we were allowed to explore on our own. In Barbados, we had to participate in a ship-offered shore excursion if we wanted to leave the vessel.

The requirement came from the port, rather than Celebrity, which will be the case for all cruises at least in the short term, as the destinations dictate the rules for keeping citizens safe.

A caveat here: While we elected to explore on our own in Curacao and Aruba, neither destination was in full tourism swing. A number of the small businesses -- retail destinations, bar and restaurants -- weren't open, as the revenue from one day of operation a week wasn't enough to offset the costs. We'll see these businesses come back slowly as more cruise ships start to visit -- and when they are able to carry fuller ships."
