  1. If you scroll down through the posts you'll see this has been asked and answered. When I first found this forum I read through alot of the posts to make sure I wasn't repeating the same question.
  2. I watched your newest YouTube video. So frustrating what you are dealing with. Whats weird is that with Royal Caribbean if you got AZ and Pfizer or Moderna it can be 4-12 weeks IF you are leaving outside of the US. I did a bit of Saturday night random online searching to find cruises out of Barbadoes, Puerto Rico, and Bahamas...
  3. That is a good point to remember. Currently you need to show proof of the test to the airline which is why it would be before security. That means that you could get a pcr test at any airport in the U.S if you are driving.
  4. Bare with me as I'm scrolling through the internet on a Saturday night.... The issue with mixed vaccines comes from the CDC. When I go to the cruise line websites they are clear that for non U.S. departure ports the vaccine rules are different. NCL has cruises out of Puerto Rico. I know it's a U.S territory but does it follow CDC rules for vaccines? I also noticed that RCCL has cruises our of Bahamas and Barbados as well and seems to have the same rules.
  5. This is getting insanely frustrating. Yes there are other cruiselines but i they are using the CDC as their rules (which I know they aren't following what the CDC says but thats what they are saying), then what stops other cruiselines from doing the same thing?
  6. My statement was in response to the worry about cancelling/rescheduling. There are a lot of vacations open that do not require vaccinations. If you are worried about how cruising looks right now then don't cruise. I'm not suggesting anyone get a vaccine but when you come online and ASK STRANGERS for advice you are going to get advice.
  7. When I read that from RCI I get worried since many Canadians went more then 42 days between doses.... Someone had mentioned that a while ago that very few Canadians actually received their vaccine doses equally as was suggested. Actually I will take that back, my 14 year old son got his two Pfizers 31 days apart. Out of every single ADULT that I know who has two doses, no one has gotten it in less then 42 days....
  8. One other thing to add.. did you get an email right away confirming that they received the request? Both times I contacted them I immediately received an email saying they received my request and will reply soon.
  9. CDC Rules https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/testing-international-air-travelers.html If you plan to travel internationally, you will need to get tested no more than 3 days before you travel by air into the United States (US) and show your negative result to the airline before you board your flight, or be prepared to show documentation of recovery (proof of a recent positive viral test and a letter from your healthcare provider or a public health official stating that you were cleared to travel). What types of SARS-CoV-2 test are acceptable under the Order? Pass
  10. I did notice as well that European cruises allow AZ/Pfizer/Moderna mix. I did read the CDC and the WHO website to try to understand the issue. It really all comes down to what the CDC allows and nothing more, nothing less. In Europe it is not the CDC and whatever is the equivalent regulatory body, they have decided that AZ/Pfizer/Moderna is fine.
  11. I paid pretty much the exact same price as if I had booked directly on the AC website. Now the price is going up and down a bit but at one point I had paid $60 CAD more (not alot of change when the flights were $1200 CAD). I couldn't use points. I also had to pay right away as the flexible fare with Fly2Fun was not an option. Once I got my booking number (in the email sent by Carnival) I was able to go on the Air Canada website and add my aeroplan number so I will receive points (I think ?) It won't let me eupgrade and I have to pay if I want to pick my seat
  12. Air Canada did that. When Covid hit they originally were not giving out refunds, only travel credits. Then they changed the policy and even though i waited a few days to call (no rush to get my refund) I still was told I could hang up and call again or request a call back.
  13. The Carnival website also says you need to fill out the vaccination survey within 48 hours of booking. soo. I think if you book now for a cruise up until the end of October you will get a question about your vaccine status. It sounds like most of us on here had booked a while ago before the new rules came into effect.
  14. I booked Fly2Fun for my December cruise Ottawa to Miami. It was with Air Canada which is the airline I have loyalty points with so that was goo.
