Canadian Passengers Not Recognized as Vaccinated with Mixed Vaccines


Recommended Posts

Hello All.

My family are booked in April for a 10 day cruise.

Turns out now Royal Caribbean's policy on mixed vaccines has killed that.

We were told by our Government and Chief Health authorities that this was the best way to go to fight the virus.

Very disappointed once again that the world leaders and Health authorities cannot get together on one united front and make united descensions based on the science,

Were hoping this is reversed soon by Royal as Royal is our ships to sail.

If Not , A lot of Canadians will flock to Carnival Cruise Line. The cruise line that seems to be showing more common sense in this matter.

Thank you from Angry , Disappointed Canadian Cruisers that feel like our voices don't matter on the world stage

cheers

Anything happening right now will have any effect on a cruise 9 months from now. North American cruises have been happening for only 1 month now and policies and procedures have been changing weekly if not daily. I wouldn’t worry about it to much. As a fellow Canadian I have a cruise out of Seattle in 2 months and I fully expect things to change many times between now and then, never mind next April.

I have a cruise this coming Jan 2022 with my family of 4.  I'm full Moderna, my 16yr old is full Pfizer, my 10 yr old not vax'd.

My wife combo Pfizer & Moderna.

So.......

Your family sounds a lot like mine. DH and I got our vaccinations within two days of each other and at the same place but he was given AZ and I got JJ, luck of the draw, you don't get to pick here.

DS, who lives in SoCal is full Moderna.

DD, who is coming to the end of a traineeship in Luxembourg and was not expecting to be able to get jabbed before the end of it got called up last month and will get her 2nd Pfizer this week!

Just wish we could manage to schedule a cruise together. I hope you get to enjoy yours with no hassle. ?

Ive booked a B2B with a friend in november. She's a nurse and in Denmark all frontline personal got the 1. shot with astra back in march but then astra was taken out of the danish vaccine programme 3 weeks later together with J&J so all those ppl got 2. shot with pfizer. Here in Denmark we were told that the mix those ppl got was actually better protection against mutations than 2 shots with pfizer. Hope RCL changes their view about mixed vaccines soon or they will get a wave of new cancellations.

2022 cruises are a long time away.  So much will change by April.  

No one knows what will be required in April.  By that point people will have been vaccinated with two doses of the same vaccine for more than one year. 

I'm not even going to suggest what that could mean because it's pointless to suggest anything.

OK, 

 

So now policy has been changed yet again.        RCL will accept Mixed Vaccines.

Now the doses must be separated by at least 28 days and not more than 42 days

 

That eliminates the majority of Canadian cruisers....    lol  ?‍♂️

lots of cancellations are coming in the next couples of weeks

My boyfriend and I each got Moderna, 47 days apart, so I'm thinking we're good, but my understanding is that if one of those had been Pfizer let's say, and the same amount of time apart, we wouldn't be able to sail? 

This really is going to affect a lot of people. Most of my family received AZ first, and a different vaccine second. I guess we got lucky having Moderna both times.

Can anyone confirm if we got both doses of the same vaccine over 42 days apart if we are ok? From the website it seems to only use the 42 day rule for mixed vaccines but I wouldn't put it past them.

 

In another forum someone posed this question to the executive offices and received a replay stating that as long as the doses are of the same vaccine the time between them does not matter.

That's  great and all. My wife still can't  cruise with mixed vaccines.

Side question...have any Canadians here sailed yet? I'm wondering about vaccinations card requirements and the fact ours are different. 

I haven’t personally (55 more days) but I know Some Canadians have been sailing and I haven’t heard of any issues with their proof of vaccine. I assume the cruise lines understand they would look different when issued by a different country.

Royal is at the mercy of the CDC on this one. They have been since this all began. The CDC's stance is their is no evidence that mixing the vaccines provides sufficient protection. The reality is the current COVID situation in the US is a dumpster fire and Canada's numbers are low (probably due to their surpassing the US in % vaccinated)
