  1. Good question I was just looking at a cruise for next month and was more focused on insurance, Alberta does have an App that confirms vaccination hope that might work. one more thing to stress over 🤦‍♀️
  2. Visiting our son in Victoria right now, tourism is down many businesses have closed up, sad but of course that could have happened even without the cruise ship ban. Of course AK wants this to continue, means more stops and dollars for their state. Does it make for a great cruise, perhaps but Vancouver/Victoria have plenty to occupy cruise passengers time in port. Once all the ships are back up and running Vancouver will be needed as an Embarkation point to handle the volume so I don’t see this proceeding .
  3. Yikes, not worried for myself and husband, we can take the 14 days in quarantine no problem, but we are traveling with my son and family, now this would be a problem for the 4 of them!
  4. I got my third shot recently too, and am grateful Alberta decided to allow it for folks with mixed does. Haven’t cruised yet but have plenty booked. I certainly am hopeful it corrects the perceived issue for boarding the ships 🤞
  5. Forgive me if I am not understanding your post, when you say a 14 day hotel quarantine before returning home, is there someone there to actually enforce this? Of course I understand I’d be contagious but wouldn’t I just have to stay put till I test negative? Ages ago my family booked our airfares for this coming February, we are leaving on the Thursday prior to our Saturday cruise, we’ll need a test to board the plane which given the early hour of our flight has to happen on Wednesday so it isn’t any good by Saturday for the cruise. In our situation we’ll all need another test soon after arrival in FLL, so I am very much interested in what others have found. I have my fingers crossed that in the next 4-5 months this may change but I know that is just my wish and perhaps not realistic ☹️
  6. We both now have our third shots (for different reasons), after reading about the third shot not being a full dose we checked with the pharmacist today to confirm that wasn’t the case at least with us, WHEW.
  7. Believe a HAL ship is on next week and the Sky Princess is a couple of weeks from now.
  8. Dear lord will this crap ever end. Did what I was told took the mixed vaccinations, today I got a third shot to try to meet the requirements of 2mRNA vaccine doses but now my third shot might not be enough. If that is the case I give up, nothing more I can do!
  9. OMG you have made my day. Sign me up I am tired of being a prisoner!
  10. I prefer an ocean view balcony, but you can’t beat the pricing sometimes on the other two types. The only additional comment I will make in favour of CP over BW is the noise level. With all that goes on at the rear of the ship it can be an issue.
  11. You will need to find a receptive Pharmacist, we live outside of Calgary now and have one willing to give it and has done so for others and another who was not willing. Much like getting information on this from Royal it’s a crap shoot what answer you’ll get 🤷‍♀️
  12. CovidShield is not accepted in most of Europe, limits where we can cruise/travel. I think the timeline between shots is the least of our issues so I am going to opt for a third shot to match the Pfizer shot I received in June (more than 42 days ago).
  13. As a fellow Canadian equally as frustrated with this situation, I understand why the cruise lines are doing this but of course that doesn’t help the millions in Canada being denied the ability to cruise and also travel to certain countries just by trusting our government. I spoke with my Pharmacist today and apparently we can get a third shot, wonder how long that will happen before the government puts the brakes on. My next trip is not till February but when the border opens I would like to take a road trip and if things go as I expect they might we will need to be fully vaccinated as we demand of them and I will still not meet the requirements without a third shot. I would like to be patient but not sure I can ☹️
  14. with every member of my family vaccinated with Pfizer for both shots but me it may be the only way I could sail with family or my husband now that “mixed vaccines” are considered unvaccinated
  15. Can anyone confirm whether or not any of the car rental companies in Miami have a location at the Pier or at least a shuttle pick up from the port. Thanks
