Anyone done a proctored COVID test on board ship for return to US??

Now that the cruise lines have placed the burden on their passengers disembarking in Vancouver with a return flight to the US to get their own COVID test…..has anyone actually done a proctored test on-line while on board their ship? Just wondering if it is easy to do. Called our cruise line and they assured us….??….that we would have plenty of “internet power” to do the video test. Since this change in policy was just sprung on us last week, it is very stressful to have to worry about getting this done and still make our scheduled flight home.

Some ships have onboard labs, can you test there?

No, they aren’t offering that option……even if you pay.

Sorry about the problem. You should ask the cruise lines or your airline what recommendations they have.

Either testing at the airport (which we don’t have time for to make our flight) or a proctored test on board. I am just curious if anyone has done one and how the ship’s Wi-Fi worked to support it.
