  1. Our last several years have been Celebrity with Chic nights. Do they still do formal nights on HAL and are tuxes and gowns the norm? Thanks.
  2. https://portal.healthmyself.net/walmarton/forms/Dpd#/ try this link for Walmart test appointments.
  3. Also gives you a true sense of the cost of the test, if others can offer it for half the price and still make a profit, even if smaller. Wonder if SDM will lower their price or be happy to get out of the business?
  4. At least in my local Walmarts, not available yet (likely just getting it set up). I anticipate demand will be high so I plan to book a couple of appointments in different locations in case of the cancellations which I read about often in Florida at CVS and Walgreens.
  5. I've been unable to post or comment on CC since yesterday ... but let me just add a giant WOOOO HOOOOO for this news. Now I'll be tracking when the cruise lines adjust their policies.
  6. I understand photo ID is still required as well .... And the government is already talking about phasing them out!
  7. fair point and fingers crossed! I assumed it meant the latter as I thought the former was already approved/known. But perhaps its only the cruise lines that have accepted the former.
  8. Just reporting what I read... not confirmed. The White House Reporter for Bloomberg News (Josh Wingrove) tweeted that the US will consider mixed vaccines as fully vaccinated. Obviously we'll need actual US Government confirmation but this is very positive.
  9. Just reported on CNN the effective date is November 8.
  10. Jim it’s 6:50 pm your time. Are you still in port. Baseball game just did an over head view and there’s a cruise ship in port. I suppose it could be pre taped.
  11. That is not accurate. This decision has not been made.
  12. Ok so maybe it wasn’t there before either just understood. It is noted explicitly on the RCCL faqs page.
  13. I was looking at the Celebrity FAQs this afternoon to see current wording in vaccines. I had thought it clearly stated no mixed AZ/mRNA from US ports but I’m not seeing that here. Am I mis-remembering ? ——- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has clarified their position regarding mixed vaccinations and provided Celebrity Cruises with updated guidance. For sailings departing from the US, the CDC will now recognize a mixed combination of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer/Moderna) as fully vaccinated. If a guest has already received two mRNA vaccines in mixed series at a minimum interval of 28 days, the CDC will consider that individual to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Guests who received the Janssen (aka Johnson & Johnson) vaccine before or after another COVID-19 vaccine should be considered to have received a valid, single-dose Janssen vaccination—not a mixed vaccination series—and are considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19. To be recognized as fully vaccinated, guests 12 years of age and older, must complete a vaccine series with the last dose administered at least 14 days prior to sailing. Only US Guests will be permitted to sail on Celebrity Apex from Barcelona and as such must follow all vaccination requirements for sailings entering/departing the US. Guests sailing on Celebrity Silhouette from Southampton, Celebrity Apex sailing from Athens, or Celebrity Flora, Xploration and Xpedition in the Galapagos, may have mixed doses as follows: AstraZeneca, with the AstraZeneca dose being administered first, followed at least 42 days later, by either the Pfizer or Moderna dose One dose of Pfizer or Moderna followed at least four weeks later by a second dose of Pfizer or Modern Some ports of call may not accept mixed vaccines and therefore could prevent guests with mixed vaccines from going ashore.
  14. Breaking news. Early detail says “next month” but official detail to come. It’s posted on CBC but I don’t know how to link it here.
  15. Be prepared not to get the US commercials. It used to be most sporting events were via an international satellite not a US feed.
  16. This is developing tonight. I’d give it a few days to percolate. I know the angst you are feeling but I think this is a first step and a big positive.
  17. Very disheartening. Sounds like in addition to proof of imminent travel proof of unacceptably of mixed doses would be helpful, eg Celebrity FAQs. Sorry to hear this.
  18. Would appreciate any details you can provide when available. Did they go to the previously described Convention Centre? Did they have a pre booked appointment? Was there a particular area or division they addressed themselves to ?
  19. Maybe I’m not reading this correctly but I’m not sure they’ll be that useful for travel unless you live near one of the sites offering drive through tests. I must be missing something.
  20. Is this a vaccine issue or they just don’t like Canadians ?
  21. You will just want to check that they will test arriving passengers, not just departing passengers. There’s sure a lot to track and it changes constantly.
  22. Not sure what your plans are but you need a test before you fly into the US.
