Despite the Canadian government approving the mixing of COVID-19 vaccinations, various cruise lines have since announced that they will not be accepting passengers with mixed doses.

Norweigan Cruise Line is one of the first to share the new protocols in a recent statement made on their website: “For ships embarking or disembarking at US ports, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and/or World Health Organization (WHO) authorized single brand vaccination protocol will be accepted. Including, J&J Janssen, Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca/Oxford. Mixed vaccination protocol will not be accepted (i.e. Pfizer + Moderna or AstraZeneca + Pfizer, etc).”

According to CTV News, Princess Cruise Lines will also not recognize those that have mixed vector (AstraZeneca) with mRNA doses as fully vaccinated passengers. However, the mixing of mRNA doses will be permitted (Pfizer and Moderna).

Other cruise lines like Holland America Line and Carnival Cruise Line will have similar protocols put in place.

Canadian cruise ship ban is set to be removed by the end of November.
