  1. They can keep their damn cruises. There’s plenty of places for me to spend my vacation money. I didn’t realize that the cruise lines were so well off that they could be this anal. You know, up until I cancelled my November cruise I actually was feeling bad for the industry? Now? I’ll go on to other things. Maybe next year I’ll cruise, maybe I won’t. Between the CDC, Desantis, the US courts and the cruise lines, the confusion and frustration I’ve dealt with trying to spend my money just ain’t worth it. The lot of them can rot afaic.
  2. I dont see it changing much - the confusion continues. Two weeks ago our vaccine regimen was acceptable to cruise, last week it wasn't, this week it might be. Two weeks from now??? I'll let the entire industry fight it out with the courts and state governments and see where the chips fall next year. Its all too bad. The cruise industry can't afford to be in a position to let people walk away from cruises, not now.
  3. After a lot of humming and hawing, we decided to pull the plug on our fall cruise. Too risky to let the final payment date to pass and hope they let us on. Instead we've booked an VRBO place for November and we'll possibly book a last minute while we're down there. Hopefully by then we'll have an answer on whether or not they'll let us on with our vaccines. Also gives us a chance to see what happens after the conditional sail order expires on Oct 31. If the cruise lines let anyone on regardless of vaccine status, we'll pass on that as well. Really bugs me that Princess changed the
  4. Interesting observation this afternoon. I notice that the FAQ on Princess that contained the policy on mixed dosages disappeared. hmmmmm, updating the policy perhaps? Fingers crossed. Disregard - must have been just a blip. Its back sorry for the false hope
  5. I think OP is disappointed that the US won let her in to the US. As a Canadian I'm free to go to the US if I want but currently the US wont allow me to enter by land. I'm not sure of OP's position but many of us (me included) drive to the US to fly to our cruise destination because its so much cheaper than flying from Canada.
  6. I thought the same. This morning the Mexican Ambassador to the US said both borders should be treated equally. uh, where do I start?
  7. Saw that. My take is that another month gives Canada the chance to get to herd immunity and then the US will not need to check vaccines given the opposition to vaccine passports in the US. I also think Biden wants to make a point with respect to vaccine hesitancy in the US.
  8. Yes, they will give you a vaccine. It may cost but they will. Are you referring to the 72 hour PCR Test nonsense the government put in for travellers returning to Canada? If so, according to Blair (another dandy), you can do the test before you leave Canada (thus making it completely useless for why they claim they need it) upload it via the ArriveCan app, leave for your day trip, get the vaccine, return and go on about your life.
  9. Great note and to your point, I am seriously considering a 3rd shot (another Pfizer) the minute the talk about boosters starts up. If land travel to the US is possible then in early October I am planning on a road trip to the US (an hour away) where I'll cross, hit up a Walgreens, get a Pfizer and heading home, after a wee bit of shopping.
  10. I thought I'd follow up with a little more up to date information on mixing vector vaccines and mRNA vaccines. As we would expect, the situation continues to evolve and yesterday a study from the US revealed that the J&J vaccine may not protect against the Delta variant. As a result several eminent Doctors (e.g. Dr Wen, Dr Hotez) are calling for those people who received the J&J to line up for an mRNA booster shot. I also read with interest this morning where Dr Vin Gupta was interviewed on CNBC and had this to say: “AstraZeneca, when combined with a Pfizer or M
  11. A copy of my follow up email sent to Jan Swartz this morning: Good morning Ms. Swartz I thought I'd follow up with a little more up to date information on mixing vector vaccines and mRNA vaccines. As we would expect, the situation continues to evolve and yesterday a study from the US revealed that the J&J vaccine may not protect against the Delta variant. As a result several eminent Doctors (e.g. Dr Leana Wen, Dr Peter Hotez) are calling for those people who received the J&J to line up for an mRNA booster shot. I also read with interest this morning where Dr Vin Gupta
  12. Thanks for the link. I noted this from your link:: “AstraZeneca, when combined with a Pfizer or Moderna booster, is showing tremendous levels of protection against delta, in terms of the antibody levels that are generated in patients.” “I do think that those one-shot J&Jer’s should be given the opportunity, while we complete our clinical trial ... I’m already telling my patients to do it, if they can get access to it.”
  13. Just watched CNN interview with AC and Dr Wen. The discussion surrounded the J&J vaccine which appears not to be efficacious against the Delta Variant. She is recommending anyone who is at risk and who got the J&J (a vector vaccine like AstraZeneca) get a mRNA booster vaccine. She feels it will significantly raise the protection. Dr Hotez earlier said the same thing. So mixing seems to be a good idea after all Over to you CDC and cruiselines ....
