  1. We booked our cruise early 2020 for late August, early September 2021. We picked these dates betting on a vaccine (which is here) and/or most of this insanity would be over in Northern Europe. Looks like a good bet!! We are cautious, washing hands, mask when appropriate or require by law, and stay away from sick people! My presumption is that the intelligent people that would be sailing on a Regent Cruise will be doing the same. The United States is on a trend to have a lower death total than 2019, in spite of COVID-19!! Flu deaths are almost nonexistent!! All normal death tolls are far b
  2. For the month of February for the Los Angeles Cruise Terminal... I have been told that there is some delay imposed by the port authorities on both embarkation and debarkation. Many debarkation flights have been affected and letters have been sent regarding delayed embarkation. On our cruise .... we received a letter from Princess that had an earliest boarding of 1:30 PM!!
  3. Has anyone done a Super Bowl Sunday at sea on Princess?? We are cruising with Princess on Super Bowl Sunday and "my team" has a chance of being a participant!! I really want to be prepared no matter what team is going to play!! I presume the Big Screen (MUTS) has the game live... Do the bars and casino have special considerations?? Is the game broadcast in the Main Theater?? Special drinks?? Parties?? TIA
  4. And there you have it!! If those other cruise lines fit your dress better... go for it!! I'm sure they will welcome your patronage. It's all about MONEY!! If your opinion and choice of another cruise line is making more money for them, ... Princess will surely follow to make a profit. We will still be the couple on formal nights in the MDR, me in the tuxedo with the fabulous lady in an evening gown.. drinking a martini.. making wonderful memories to share and having a great time!
  5. This is just me.. and how you do your formal nights is completely up to you!! No judgement here... DON"T judge this!!! I have always worn a tuxedo on formal nights. I bought one just for cruises. We are going on a South Pacific cruise soon and I'm getting a white dinner jacket to fit in the warmer temperature. Formal wear makes great pictures and memories. We love and treasure the pictures of us in formal wear on cruises. It reminds of of the wonderful time we had spending the money we saved to have a good time on vacation. I have plenty of pictures of all of us in daily
  6. My wife and I like to play trivia often! On one Princess cruise we were "interviewed" by a couple to see if we knew enough general trivia to be on their team. To be truthful with you,.. we have a very large cache of Princess trinkets and trash that has been collected as prizes or gifts from Princess that I would love to unload ! We DON'T need anymore! If you have a better memory than us... let me buy you a drink and say.. Good on you!!! It is very obvious when people use additional sources. If we got the same answer on our own.. who is smarter and who cares??
  7. Most of time I have chosen to my own laundry, it's been VERY late at night/early morning!!! I know much as I may try to be quiet.. it is probably way noisier than others think I should be. Just opening and closing doors late at night when there is no other noise seems very loud. If it were me.. I'd choose another cabin. IMOHO
  8. I have been scrutinized in my previous cruises by several trivia pros just in order to be on their team!! I have personally seen several persons playing trivia with us using media in order to gain an advantage and I have also reported it ... ASAP. It's not about the dollar 2 ninety eight prizes.. IT"S.... ARE YOU SMARTER AT THAT GIVEN TIME THAN US?? I have plenty of Princess trinkets if you need them.... but don't be a cheater..
  9. Does anyone know how many Club Class suites are designated on the Emerald Princess?? Has anyone had a bad experience with upgrading to Princess Club Class??
  10. On our cruise from Quebec to Fort Lauderdale in late October, we stayed at the Hotel Le Germain Dominion Quebec City. We arrived two days early to see the sites and, trust me... that is not enough!! This hotel is reasonably priced, rooms are nice, very centrally located to local transportation and easy walking distance to many restaurants. Most of all... it is literally a little over 100 meters from the front door to the front of the cruise terminal entrance!! It was windy and spitting rain on embarkation, but the short walk was not bad at all.
  11. It's a running joke with my wife and me.... I order a "Vodka Tonic" and they always ask if I have preference of "Vodka?" My answer, that seems to offend my wife all the time is "Is your tonic water any good!?" You shouldn't taste the Vodka in the drink... and gin drinkers always know the difference between good giin and bad gin.
