  1. The above is only for mixed. They don’t have any timing in the earlier FAQ if you have two of the same vaccines. Here is the wording fir same vaccines. Vaccines that are fully approved or authorized for emergency use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the World Health Organization (WHO) are accepted. Sputnik V and CanSino are not accepted Covid-19 vaccines. U.S. Based AstraZeneca and Novavax clinical trial participants are also considered fully vaccinated. US participants in COVID-19 vaccine trials can be considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after they complete the vaccine series, if it has been confirmed that they received “active” vaccine, and not placebo. Please be aware that certain countries we sail from or visit during a voyage may require a specific vaccine, and only those travelers vaccinated with the requisite vaccine will be considered fully vaccinated. Be sure to review your departure country's requirements or consult our guest materials prior to sailing for these requirements.
  2. I used Shoppers Drug Mart in August for our flight (Air Canada) and Cruise (Celebrity Equinox) with no issues at all. I called a Walmart by us and they are using the same type of test as Shoppers and confirmed they would insert our passport number in the result form if we brought it with us, so I think they would be fine too, but they don't start tests until 9:30 am, so I'm still going to Shoppers again next week (our local one will test starting at 8:00 am). As an FYI, Walmart requires appointments (based on the website and the one I spoke to). Shoppers have different procedures, so do walk ins and some do not, and some did walk ins and now want appointments, so it is best to call and ask.
  3. Interestingly, there appears to be some movement. My app, as of this afternoon, for our Constellation cruise now has a Check in button (that does nothing yet - just says "fun on the horizon" when you click it), and the far right menu now says "Check in opens on November 8" - which is 45 days before my sailing.
  4. Celebrity's FAQs now says this: For ALL sailings, including US and Global Departures, the CDC will now recognize a mixed series of any two of the following vaccines, with a minimum of 28 days between doses, as fully vaccinated: Pfizer Moderna Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca Sinovac Sinopharm 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. Some ports of call may not accept mixed vaccines and therefore could prevent guests with mixed vaccines from going ashore.

  6. As a note, on recent cruises it seems like they are doing the test the morning of the last full day on the ship and you get the results that afternoon and then leave the ship the next day. When you get on the ship, call front desk and let them know you are Canadian and need a PCR test to fly home and they put you on the list and let you know later in the cruise the date and time of testing.
  7. Yes, Celebrity provides the PCR test for free. You need a test 72 hours before the departure of your flight back to Canada. My experience is in the link below. You should check out the Canada board, there is lots of info. Yes, you need a test 3 days before you fly to the USA, but 2 days before you cruise, so I'm going to get my test at 2 days so I can use it for both the flight to Florida and cruise. The rapid antigen test is enough for the flight to the USA and cruise. If you live in Ontario or Alberta check out Shoppers Drug Mart and now some Costcos and Walmarts are doing the rapid antigen even cheaper.
  8. The current Equinox sailing is only 3 days. I'm guessing the next sailing, which is 9 days, will be higher again.
  9. I don't know if that is true about flying into the US. Everything I have read has suggested you will still need the test to fly into the US (with Antigen test likely still being sufficient), but you don't need a test if you drive across the border into the US.
  10. A man named Russ used Switch at the airport before flights and a Royal cruise this summer. Second page of the below. I remember him posting more details somewhere if you search his posts. Due to flight times and the drive, I believe it was the only option that worked for him.
  11. As a note, I did mine in August on the last day of the cruise on the ship. I'm not sure if there is a limit on how long the information is saved in ArriveCan.
  12. That is at the first page. It is a lot further into the process that they ask about other countries.
  13. I believe others have answered, but you need a molecular test to come back to Canada, an antigen test will not be accepted. There are stories of people being fined $5000 each when showing up at the border with antigen tests that people in the USA told them would work.
  14. From what I’ve read, Nomi at the Airport isn’t free, their test prices are on the airport website. Someone on these boards did say that a person at Nomi said the testing was free at their other locations, but I didn’t verify that.
  15. I added all countries our cruise visited and no issues coming back.
