  1. I'd like to think I have the best luck when it comes to travelling. When we went on an Alaskan cruise we were the last helicopter to go out before fog cancelled the rest of the day. We've offered to give up our plane tickets and got over $3000 in travel credits. I have rarely had bad weather on vacation, no matter where I go. Oh and I've never missed a flight, even when I showed up 5 minutes before it left. I'm just happy for everyone else with mixed doses who couldn't get a 3rd dose.
  2. So excited about this news. So many of us have been so stressed and annoyed and worried. We are getting out of this pandemic 🙂
  3. I think people need to understand that when it says approved by WHO and FDA etc it means following the recommendations of the vaccine company. AZ did not suggest giving a Pfizer/Moderna as a section dose.
  4. I filled out the form on Monday when I arrived to do my shot. I just said "I am here for my 2nd Pfizer dose." I did not mention it was my 3rd. I did not say I had AZ. I simply said "I need a 2nd PFizer shot." To also add when I made my appointment I said I needed Pfizer so they made sure to give me a Pfizer dose.
  5. That has been brought up numerous times on the Carnival section as well as John Heald's facebook group. I like to think that they are the cheapest cruise line and so the cheap cost of the cruise plus paying my own pcr test is way cheaper then cruising elsewhere. For example if I did NCL for New Years it would be $2400 with a pcr test. Carnival is $600 without.
  6. I am also cruising with Carnival in December. Can you clarify your question though? You need an antigen test to board a Carnival ship and yes you can do the antigen test in Ontario as long as it's two days before you board the ship (time doesn't matter so if you board on Saturday you can get the test Thursday or Friday. You can even do it Saturday AM but that's cutting it a bit short.) Are you talking about the pcr test to come home?
  7. Also want to add that it doesn't have to be 48 hours before you leave. It is no more then 48 hours so you can get your test as mentioned above at 8am, 9am. and then board your flight at 11am, etc.
  8. It was the Shoppers at the Signature Centre in Kanata. 1 - I looked online to see which stores had Pfizer 2 - I walked in on Friday and made an appointment for the Monday 3 - I filled out a form with my health card info 4 - They put in the info into the system 5 - I got an email like I did for my 1st/2nd shots but instead of a pdf it had a link to log into the system to download the watermarked form.
  9. Cunard does a lot of transatlantics with the first one being in January (I think). I would be following what they do in terms of TA. They are owned by Carnival and will obviously have alot of U.K. passengers who may also have mixed dose.
  10. That is a great suggestion however it is very problematic for Canadians to order the test. It isn't able to be shipped to Canada, you can't use a Canadian credit card to purchase it, and I also think there are some issues with using your Canadian phone. CVS or other drug stores sound like a great idea but the time to go to and from the airport to get a test off site might not be a savings as some airports have tests for cheaper that take 3-5 hours.
  11. Very happy to hear the rumour. Hopefully it is true and not just a rumour. I would love for the PCR test to be removed. Even if it was an antigen test required I would be much happier. I know we are pushing our luck and being more and more demanding, BUT, those that did the right thing and got vaccinated are still not getting "a good deal".
  12. This has been mentioned so many times in this forum. The cruise line agents have given out incorrect information on numerous occasions. If you are standing at the port trying to board your ship saying "but when I called Carnival they said..." or worse "..but this guy on Cruise Critic said.." This place is great for reviews of ships, food, how to's etc. but considering the number of people being denied boarding for not reading the rules, I would only trust the website for procedures.
  13. I thought it was pretty clear. "Within two days" means exactly that. You need an antigen test within two days of boarding your cruise. There is no reference to 48 hours. The example explains that if you board Saturday you can test Thursday, Friday and possibility Saturday before you board.
  14. On the Canadian part of this forum there are reports that certain provinces have PCR tests costing up to $300. I've seen higher prices for places like Las Vegas as well ($400). We need a time machine to go back in tmie and buy stock in pcr tests 🙂
  15. I bet the accidental email caused them to get a pile of phone calls from worried cruisers. I am seeing on Facebook people are still asking about the email so thats probably why the phones are so busy.
