  1. Actually the mrna vaccines do activate t-cells.
  2. Maybe because your cruise ended more than 2 weeks ago?
  3. You don't have to wait more than a month after having covid before you can be vaccinated. Immunity of recovered cases is not the same as having the vaccine because it can be a lot shorter than the vaccine. The vaccine is still recommended if someone has recovered from covid. In most states, the vaccine has been available to all since April/May. So even if you caught covid right before you could be vaccinated you would have recovered, waited a month and been fully vaccinated by now. It might've been different for the July cruises but at this point having previously had covid is not a valid reason not to be vaccinated. (For 18 plus at least, without another medical reason preventing vaccination.)
  4. Looks like Carnival updated and will allow certain proctored self-tests. https://www.carnival.com/Legal/covid-19-legal-notices/return-to-service-faqs Is a self-test acceptable? Vaccinated guests may use a medically observed self-test (sometimes referred to as home test) that meets the following criteria: The test must be a SARS-CoV-2 viral test (nucleic acid amplification test [NAAT] or antigen test) with Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Please note, antigen tests are accepted for fully vaccinated guests, but not for unvaccinated guests. The testing procedure must include a telehealth service affiliated with the manufacturer of the test that provides real-time supervision remotely through an audio and video connection. Some FDA-authorized self-tests that include a telehealth service may require a prescription. The telehealth provider must confirm the person’s identity, observe the specimen collection and testing procedures, confirm the test result, and issue a report that meets the requirements of acceptable proof of a negative COVID-19 test.
  5. Not sure if the OPs email is wrong or they read it wrong. The website says that Platinum/Diamond won't have early access to cabins like you experienced.
  6. Delta was ravaging India in May. With the announcement by the CDC in May to not require masks indoors if you're vaccinated (or unvaccinated and just don't care) and slow vaccination rates in a lot of the US, I think a lot of people suspected a surge coming.
  7. You have to be tested on board so I would assume if you have to fill it out again they would have you do it then. Or you could print off an extra copy when you fill out the first one.
  8. Only time I've seen a game on the big screen was on embarkation day before sail away.
  9. Masks are only being recommended in areas with low vaccination rates. Carnival requires 95% of passengers to be vaccinated. IMO, the only thing that would interfere with Carnival cruising is if there is a major outbreak on a 95% vaccinated ship.
  10. I was replying to the person that said you had to have at least one person in the room that was 25. I knew it was different with children. Misread the person's post.
  11. I sailed alone with friends at 21 back in 2007 so you have to be at least 21, not 25.
  12. We made a reservation for there for our September cruise but we made it back in May. It's still showing in cruise planner though.
