  1. Crystal will be requiring proof of vaccination: https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/24410-crystal-cruises-to-require-covid-19-vaccine-for-guests.html
  2. We will dock in Paris on one of the new shorter ships but we also have a night docked in Le Pecq.
  3. Has anyone done the Viking Versaille excursion from Le Pecq and if so, did you think you had enough time to see everything? Since we probably will not be allowed to wander around LePecq on our own in June we're looking at the other options.
  4. May his memory be a blessing.
  5. Today's bad news: "At Oceania Cruises, the health, safety and well-being of our guests, crew and the communities we visit have always been and remain our highest priority. Given the continued global efforts to combat the spread of the global COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, we are extending our suspension of voyages to include all voyage departures from January 1, 2021 through March 31, 2021 plus select April voyage departures."
  6. That's surprising. As GICNJC said, perphaps you have not received the email outlining the options. We are taking the 125% for our cancelled 11/23/2020: To make up for the inconvenience of this suspension, guests who are currently booked on voyages with embarkation dates from November 1, 2020 through November 30, 2020 that are paid in full with cash funds (credit card, check, bank wire) will automatically receive a Future Cruise Credit worth 125% of the cruise fare paid. This is our way of providing even more value to our loyal guests to cruise with us at a later date. This Future Cruise
  7. "... what will the White House do if cruisers sail and get covid?" Most likely nothing.
  8. One can pretty much sue over anything. The hard part is proving the case.
  9. Nautica is a lovely ship but quite unlike Marina. Much smaller, less specialties and more intimate. We were on her for 30 days, Dubai to Cape Town. Unless you do pre or post stays or overnight excursions, chances are you are not going to see a lot of wildlife on this itinerary. When day excursions are offered you would get to any wildlife reserve well after prime viewing times. Yes you will see giraffe, many more ungulates and maybe a few big cats. We did our own day excursions to private reserves from Richards Bay (Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve) and Durban (Tala), specifically to see wh
  10. I think we had the same guide. He really did not talk "politics" but you knew what he was implying.
  11. Agree. Handing anything to begging children is not helping anything. Look what it did in places like Egypt - you can't walk anywhere withour being mobbed by kids begging. The best alternative to giving children money is to find a reputable NGO or charity and donate to the organization or make a donation to the local school.
  12. Go to your Reservation and see if you can book Privee. Probably you can. Plenty of time to find friends to join you. You can always cancel.
