I would follow the medical advise - better to have it so you are protected whereever you may travel to.
Hello I would suggest that you contact Celebrity on their free phone number and ask them. If they can't give you an immediate answer they should ring you back with one. This is new and I am surprised that there has been no follow up. A yellow fever jab is required for French Guyana and Devil's Island and having had it I can assure you that there were no after-effects or pain with it. So my advice...check it out Heather .
Celebrity will not offer advise on what jabs are needed - they are not trained medical staff are they. They will refer you to their visa service who do have a medical arm

In the UK check with your GP or put your itinerary in an enquiry at the MASTA site... it costs a few pounds, but gives you very precise answers. We did a Panama Canal cruise and had Hep A, Polio,and took Malaria tablets. I think Yellow Fever was recommended but as we are older (quite a lot older) its not recommeded for anyone over 60 or something like that.. can't really remember. I check the MASTA site for all my health requirements abroad. Sometimes your local chemist/pharmasist will have a list too.
No you dont. take mossie spray and put on before you go on deck - its very hot. the canal is great, very interesting.
We are probably on same ship (Mercury) we were told categorically by Costa Rican Embassy that you need the yellow fever jab as you are coming from Colombia. My husband being over 60 couldn't have it but has got a yellow card just the same, I (being under 60) have had it. The risk is that they6 don't let you ashore in Costa Rica. You just have time, needed 10 days before entering Colombia. We are off tomorrow for pre cruise stay in Fort Lauderdale, maybe bump inot you on the ship!
