  1. I don't know why people would trust call center answers over written answers. Especially since the written answer conforms to the CDC guidance and the policy of every other major cruise line. I guess you will have to call every day until the call center updates its material. 😞
  2. The Celebrity FAQ simply says that it has plans that allow for the safe return of the ship and in conjunction with local authorities to get the passenger home.

  4. From the Celebrity Healthy at Sea FAQ (underline is mine) "Will I be considered fully vaccinated if my first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine is from one manufacturer and the second dose is from another? Following CDC guidelines, Celebrity will consider a guest fully vaccinated with proof of vaccination that can include mixed doses of the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines. Guests sailing on Celebrity Silhouette from Southampton, or Celebrity Apex sailing from Athens can have mixed doses that include AstraZeneca as long as the AstraZeneca dose is administered first, and then either
  5. Any combination of mRNA vaccines is acceptable to the CDC. You do not have to contemplate getting another shot for cruising or entering the US. At the moment, only Az with an mRNA is not accepted as fully vaccinated when cruising out of the US.
  6. Sadly there are those that believe the whole thing is a hoax. And a goodly number that suggest a lightning strike is more likely.
  7. The trip cancellation insurance on my card is limited to $2,500 and only covers purchases paid with the card. Nowhere near enough for a cruise.
  8. There is nothing preventing you from cruising. You simply have to comply with the rules for unvaccinated passengers. Not ideal, I agree. But heartbreaking?
  9. The good news is that Pfizer / Moderna mixes are acceptable.
  10. The most important metric is what the CDC / FDA dictate. Right now neither consider Az + mRNA fully vaccinated. That may change. Given that Az is not approved for use in the US, I suspect that change will not happen anytime soon.
  11. A rather silly announcement in my opinion. Canada is not known for its winter cruises.
  12. According to the most recent Carnival wording the issue is being decided by the CDC. It accepts mixed mRNA vaccinations but not an Astrazeneca mix. For cruises departing the U.S., the CDC requires both vaccines in a 2-dose series to be of the same type. They also accept mixing mRNA vaccines only (Pfizer and Moderna). No other vaccine combination meets the criteria to be considered fully vaccinated. So, for example, Canadian or other international guests who received a combination of AstraZeneca and Pfizer are considered unvaccinated by the CDC. Guests who are not fully vaccinated,

  14. It doesn't matter what the WHO thinks about mixed vaccine vaccinations. All the vaccines are already recognized by the WHO. What the FDA rules is a valid vaccination will decide the issue.
