Unintended consequences strike again.

Earlier this month, the line [Royal Caribbean] said that certain venues on the ship would be off-limits to unvaccinated passengers, but it didn’t give specifics. This week’s listing of forbidden venues fleshes out the plan. The newly posted list includes:

The Chef’s Table
Izumi Hibachi & Sushi
R Bar
Schooner Bar
The Pub
Viking Crown Nightclub
Solarium Bar
Solarium Pool
Casino Royale (the ship’s casino)
Casino Bar
Vitality Spa (the ship’s spa)

This is from Gene Sloan, “Royal Caribbean to unvaccinated travelers: No sushi (and a lot of other things) for you,” The Points Guy.

Why is Royal Caribbean doing this? Sloan explains:

The new rules come in the wake of threats from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis that any cruise line that requires passengers to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccine will be fined. A new Florida law forbids businesses in the state from requiring customers to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccine.

I wrote about Governor DeSantis’s attack on freedom of association in early April.

The good news is that I didn’t anticipate how clever Royal Caribbean would be in responding to it.
