  1. It wasn’t an insurance issue for the denial of boarding for the man and his son. It was their citizenship. MSC only wants US citizens on their ships for now. I don’t know why, but the ships belong to MSC so they make that rule. I think Don’s issue is that the man should not have been able to book the cruise. Not everyone has experience travelling and making plans, and they depend too much on Customer Service Reps. We experienced cruisers know to not depend on them because they often get ‘it’ wrong…for whatever reason. I say this for no other reason but from personal experience…..some Customer Service Reps from some ships, companies, etc, have no idea where Canada is located. They at least should be taught that Canada is not a part of the US. I swear that my statement is true. We all have learning experiences and I hope this man and his son get over the bitterness of the lost cruise and can be cheerful again.
  2. Not cruise on MSC….all other cruise lines are accepting Canadian cruisers upon meeting all protocols. For some reason MSC only wants US citizens as their customers for now. No reason given that I can see. But it’s their decision.
  3. That’s great! It was surprisingly easy for me to put into the Drive file too. Just followed instructions, after printing it of course….in case it disappeared. 😊
  4. Any neighbours with an 8 or 9 yr old, LOL. Miraculously, I was able to load ( don’t know if it was up or down) the QR code info into an icon on phone called Drive. It’s still there too! As a back up, I made a few paper copies.
  5. Or even stop cruising until herd immunity is reached and Covid becomes yet a bad memory.
  6. The answer is under the question..’will I be considered fully vaccinated if one vaccine is from one manufacturer and the second vaccine is from a different one?’
  7. It’s great that one doesn’t need a membership to use the Pharmacy services, their dispensing fee is the best and used Costco for years. Hearing tests as well are for anyone and free! i know nothing about how tests are administered. Being a mixed vaccine person, I didn’t think I would be able to leave Canada again. If the pharmacist administers it, then it must be within the pharmacy area. Thanks for the info!
  8. Does anyone know if the Covid test at Costco is located behind the counter in the Pharmacy area, or out on the shelves in the general merchandise area? I’m not a Costco member and don’t want to join just to buy a test. One doesn’t have to be a member to use the Pharmacy services. Thank you.
  9. Thank you! I did receive $600 OBC for rebooking a cancelled cruise and another $50 that was attached to that particular booking. I don’t seem to have trouble spending money..🤣..just want to do it wisely..😉
  10. Interesting development…now the FDA is saying that Americans can mix and match their booster vaccines. They haven’t voted on it or made an official announcement but alot of indications are showing this to be true. They didn’t mention AstraZeneca because it wasn’t used as an initial vaccine. I find this to be amusing after all the hoopla about other countries using mixed vaccines. Celebrity has updated their ‘approved’ vaccine mixes to be considered fully vaccinated. Someone on SM showed the table. I haven’t gone to the X website to verify it.
  11. Just a little confusing…so I can use some of the rebooking OBC in the Casino? Download about $100 of it and play the slots? If I won $20, could I cash out $120…..or would they only give me $20? I didn’t rebook with an FCC I don’t think. When advised that my cruise had been cancelled, I simply phoned and booked another cruise. I didn’t have an FCC . Thanks for helping to straighten out this old brain, LOL.
  12. I don’t know about Covid testing, but just for reference, one does not have to a member to use the pharmacy for prescription service, or to have one’s hearing tested. These services are not owned by Costco. Unless their policy changed, of course. They changed their policy about buying the fast food..ice cream cones, hot dogs, etc…..one has to be a member…unless they’ve changed that policy back to what it was.
  13. Could someone mail you a kit from Alberta or Ontario? Would that be allowed? Or does an Ontario or Alberta kit have to be processed in its respective Province?
  14. Thanks. I am fully vaccinated, was just wondering about those few who wouldn’t be.
