  1. Here's a link to Pfizer Canada https://www.cbc.ca/news/health/pfizer-says-early-data-indicates-covid-19-vaccine-is-effective-1.5794899
  2. So going to Miami port and getting on the ship will not be an issue. Coming back home won't be an issue either as my wife and I both work, so we can do the 14 day quarantine. So I will keep any Feb 1 sailing thanks for all of the replies
  3. The reason why I asked that question is, I have a sailing for Feb 1st, leaving Port of Miami, 4 Night on Navigator. Since the Canadian borders is closed up until March, then I need to decide if if should reprice my cruise for a July 2021 or lift and shift for Jan 2022.
  4. If cruising resumes in North America, what are the chances it will only be for USA residence? If so, then Canadian are screwed? .lol
  5. From Toronto, ON To Port of Miami.. hmmm. I have driven to Florida before no issues. I would rather fly to be honest.
  6. Man .. I'm royally pissed.. I was advised by the travel company the reason for the cancellation was due to last payment not submitted even when they had advised me the last payment submission was extended. I had full intentions in paying the remaining balance before the due date,... Even though I can't see any sailing for the remainder of 2020.. but you never know. the other travel agent has assured me the Nov sailing will be canceled. I would rather have paid my last payment then the sailing cancelled. It was a mistake on their part and I don't know how to deal with thi
  7. My travel agent has been having bad luck in reaching RCL to manage my bookings. My Nov 2nd sailing was recently cancelled, and it has been 2 weeks with no luck getting through to RCL Frustrating....
  8. ok.. SO If plan on working with MEI travel for RCL cruising trips for my family, then maybe it's worth getting an RBC Gold USD Visa. use that CC for all of my future RCL trips. This way I can get better incentives offered in the US? We'll just need to deal with the currency exchange when paying it off
  9. ok, so I'm trying to understand this. for every 1000.00 USD it costs $32.85 CAD (1314.03 CAD x 2.5% FEE CC) current exchange rate So to avoid this 32.85 FEE CC, or any exchange rate, you get an RBC Visa is USD currency to pay RCL's cruise invoice. so when it's time to pay off the RBC USD Visa balance, you are using CAD currency? still an exchange rate right there. Why do all of this to save 32.85 CAD per 1000,00 USD? unless you are always booking suites and above. then maybe. I don't see the cost savings.. by planning a trip for my family of 4, usually we a
  10. At today's bank rate per $1000 USD = $1314.03 CAD and this is before the 2.5% fee CC charge for foreign currency transactions. So $32.85 CAD for every $1000 USD? (1314.03 CAD x 2.5% FEE CC)
  11. Hi folks I currently work with a Flightcenter Travel Agent, She's great, but the company had a major temp layoff and store closures across Canada. She was affected. I was working with the agent on my Nov 2nd Miami sailing (now cancelled) I was trying to get the agent to do a Lift and shift. I also have a Mediterranean cruise in May 2021. We don't know her future with the company, so I'm asking any RC Canadian members here, who they love to work with for Cruising vacations. (as a backup)
