  1. This whole mixed dose thing just makes me want to cry, I did what I was told and thought was the right thing and now I may be able to cruise, but be considered unvaccinated. I hope this gets sorted out sooner than later. I don't cruise until March at this point, but it makes me want to get a second dose of Pfizer, which would be a third dose of vaccine, and feels like I'd be stealing it from someone else. If they'd even let me. Just makes me angry. I should just wait until the border opens and go get the one shot Johnson and Johnson, maybe I'd have super covid resistant powers then with all th
  2. I believe they changed their messaging today, up until recently it all said mixing was ok.
  3. I'm in the same boat, AZ then Pfizer. I moved my cruises from December in order to get more time to sort this out, and get my son vaccinated as he turns 12 then. I hope it does get resolved sooner than later, I have PIF in December for March cruises on RCL, which is now saying the same thing when before they said it was ok. Prime Minister says he is working on it but who knows. I don't think it's just cruises either, other countries are also not considering it fully vaccinated. I am very angry that this is how it's played out, do what we're told and get screwed over. I really hope it get fixed
  4. I have a cruise booked in December (on Mardi Gras) and am stressing out!! My son turns 12 on the cruise so he won't be vaccinated. I'm just not sure if I should try and move it, if we go later he would be vaccinated and no worries! But all this approval to be part of the 5%, limiting which excursions... just makes me anxious. We want to go, I do hope they relax things a bit by then, but of course no one can predict what will happen, and if I wait too long to cancel/move I may have to pay much higher prices. Any way. Interesting to see what the plans are for July/August especially with regards
  5. I hope that doesn't impact travel, it isn't just Canadians of course, it was used a lot in the UK as well. And it's what I have gotten. I'd also worry about Canadians with mixing vaccines, will that be ok? I was going to be getting Moderna for my second dose but managed to get an earlier appointment for AZ so will have both doses of that, but if it's not one worry, it's another! Hopefully there will be some sort of guidance, perhaps approval based on WHO guidelines? or your countries approvals? Or if we get a "you're vaccinated!" passport of some sort it will just say "two doses" a
  6. I got my first jab April 21 (AstraZeneca) and managed to find an appointment for dose 2 July 11th (probably Moderna). It has been hard to find a second dose appointment. I am most frustrated for my son, he turns 12 in December, supposed to be while on Carnival Mardi Gras followed by a week on Harmony. At this point I have no idea if we'll be able to go 😞 I have until September so hopefully by then we'll know more about vaccinating younger kids and also what requirements for cruising, and travelling to/from Canada will be. It is frustrating because I know some areas of Ontario are giving the sh
  7. I guess I should have known better than to book a cruise for my son's 12th birthday! Of course this was postponed from his 11th birthday. I have until September I guess, since we cruise in December. Same issue on RCL that we have booked as well. I want him vaccinated, don't get me wrong, but it varies so much as to whether I can get it for him by birth year or have to wait for birthdate. I guess we'll see how it goes. I really just want to be able to cruise again (as we all do).
  8. I am hoping for this, and that Canada will shorten the duration between doses by then. His pediatrician today said he thought they should lower it to 10 soon, but I don't know what he was basing it on. At least I will have mine! First dose already but a few more weeks until the second.
  9. This throws a wrench in my December cruise, my son turns 12 four days before we are due to board. I am hoping to get him vaccinated before we go but it seems to vary locally whether is is actually 12 or born in 2009. Even if I got him the shot on his birthday, that doesn't leave enough time to get the second dose and then have 2 weeks. Ugh. I have no issue with the requirement to be vaccinated in general terms, just this specific type of case. I will have to hope he can get his done before we travel I guess. I thought I was done worrying about whether this vacation would happen.
  10. Liberty 2015 for my 40th! Now hooked 🙂
  11. Thanks for this! I just thought I would get something eventually after I booked but it never came. Now I have the details, but it doesn't list my C&A number, which I put in when I booked so I guess I'll have to figure out how to make sure that goes on there somehow.
  12. Never been on NCL but my son (he was 8 at the time) and I really enjoyed the Magic. He loved the water slides and ropes course, and the sports square area. And the BBQ 🙂 He's all about the food. We had a balcony on lido and it was really nice. We have Mardi Gras and Horizon booked for the future but I wouldn't hesitate to go on Magic again.
  13. I still haven't heard back from the email enquiry I sent, I suspect I will have to call and see what's going on. It's just a busy time of year to spend time on hold. My price has not changed with the ship change, however it would have been nice to get something for the switch!
  14. I just logged in to see my Jan 30 - Feb 13 2022 Meraviglia cruise and was very confused, my itinerary changed, the cabin I selected was now guaranteed... I never got an email or anything! Then I looked closer and see it will be on the Seashore instead. The whole thing is a bit ironic since my Dec 2020 cruise was switched from Seaside to Meraviglia before being cancelled. I had thought 2022 would be "safe" to travel again... I'm ok with the ship change though I preferred the Sunday departure, the new itinerary isn't as much fun but I guess it will do. I just wish they had sent me an email or so
  15. I was on the Dec 6 Horizon and called Sunday to see what my options were, I had only put down $100 for deposits so worst case I'd lose that. But they moved it for me, no extra fees or penalties and somehow I didn't have to pay any more. I moved it to April 2023 🙂 and now have a BTB booked then. The person on the phone was very helpful. I could have cancelled and lost the $100 but am happy I was able to move it. Good luck!
