  1. Perhaps which cruise lines have updated its requirements.
  2. I believe the web site indicates that the QR can be loaded into Apple health wallet.
  3. Hallelujah. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/fully-vaccinated-guidance.html#annex The relevant section, bolding is mine. "Therefore, for the purposes of interpretation of vaccination records, individuals can be considered fully vaccinated ≥2 weeks after receipt of the last dose if they have received any single dose of an FDA approved/authorized or WHO EUL approved single-dose series (i.e., Janssen), or any combination of two doses of an FDA approved/authorized or WHO emergency use listed COVID-19 two-dose series. The recommended interval between the first and second doses of FDA-approved/authorized and WHO-EUL listed vaccines varies by vaccine type. However, for purposes of interpretation of vaccine records, the second dose in a two dose heterologous series must have been received no earlier than 17 days (21 days with a 4 day grace period) after the first dose."
  4. It is a mystery. I do wonder how much pressure is being applied by commercial interests.
  5. The Ontario QR certificate is a joke. Why it took more than 3 weeks to deliver is a mystery. Only the Ontario app is able to interpret the QR code likely making it useless outside the province. Also makes it incompatible with other systems, so GOC will likely have more work creating it's international travel version. Lack of a display app for Android is another irritant. The only good thing is that the printed certificate includes on a single page the information necessary for cruise check-in.
  6. Since the north bound border has been opened for a while and PCR test is still required, I doubt the policy will change anytime soon. An exception for day trippers strikes me as sensible.
  7. While there may not be large scale clinical trials, WHO believes there is sufficient data to judge the effectiveness and safety of mixed dose AZ mRNA vaccinations. See ~@1:11 in video https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/media-resources/science-in-5/episode-54---covid-19-mixed-and-fractional-vaccine-doses.
  8. See UPDATE at the top of https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/from-other-countries.html
  9. Occasionally when this happens it's because the post has been put on a new page.
  10. It's obvious, but don't forget passports and credit card. 😃 Have a great cruise.
  11. I agree and I never said these sentiments indicated selfish, spoiled behavior. I won't bother reposting what I actually said. I will point out that to "do the best we can to limit the risk" necessarily involves refraining from non essential travel. I really don't care how much risk others expose themselves to. But I do object to the thinking that these risks only affect those exposed. The nature of a pandemic is such that actions of others can and do have effects on me and others not taking the same risk.
