  1. TC2, why are confident about November, but not January, February, March and April? I mean, if it is ok to cruise in November (unlikely, IF) - then months after that should be ok too?
  2. sadly, what the US is doing is not necessarily a beacon of hope for many ... 😞 ( I don't want to start the political discussion here, just merely noting - how many of us would be happy to go on a cruise now if the situation was like the current on in NY, or CA?)
  3. There are a lot of various theories doing rounds. One does not know what to believe. However, I do think that humans needed this wake up call to re-valuate our values, what's important and what's not. We are (in NZ) at the end of day 3 of a 4-week (at this stage, could be longer) lock down. And suddenly you understand that so many "important" things are not really matter that much! Today I did not have garlic whilst making an Italian dish, oh shock horror! normally I would have jumped in a car and drove to get it. Today? I just laughed it off and used garlic salt instead. Nobody complained, and the wine tasted even better! (mind you, it was a 2010 Merlot, but who counts, right? 🙂 Hope you and your DH weather this out and enjoy Regent again, soon!
  4. Sounds like a bit of a backhanded compliment 😊👍
  5. New Zealand has closed its ports for all cruises from tonight until 30 June. All passengers arriving in NZ ( with exception of a few Pacific islands ) must self isolate for 14 days. There are other restrictions in place too. We are now one of the highest restriction imposed countries. Although deemed good for health , negative impact on economy will me massive.
  6. just seen on my RC - a cruise from Dubai leaving in 3-4 days has been cancelled (not sure what cruise line), Seabourn has also cancelled two April cruises departing from Dubai. This is just another issue to add to the mix discussed here - you are healthy, have a certificate, but a port/country stays you can't get in/depart ...
  7. think is was a joke by Mr Bill 🙂 (with an underlying message though)
  8. I am sorry, I do not know you, TB, and neither I know TC2. However, somehow your posts about her and her DH appear to be "backhanded" compliments. If you are genuinely concern and find TC2's DH "adorable" this is really a good time to stop.
  9. Digressing - if a cat has 9 lives, how do you count their age - as a cumulative or start each time all over again? if this is the former, than you can have a cat who lives to celebrate 100 y.o. and get a card from HRM (if you are in Commonwealth) 🙂
  10. Most of us would not have seen this discussion. There is no reason to disclose other person's information, even if you did see i somewhere. There is a reason why most - if not all - people here use handles. if a person is concerned about someone's age just referring to your/your DW/DH etc "age" or "age to be of a concern" is sufficient, without going into specifics. IMHO
  11. was it something to do with global events though? (just curious)
  12. another sad news from the cruising world - another empty ship ... https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12315306
  13. I have to thank each and every one of you for this discussion and helping my DH and me to make an agonizing decision on our April cruise (first on Regent - were soo looking forward to it!) we've decided to postpone, hopefully by next October things will get back to some normality. Why October - this is the time when the cruise itinerary is almost identical. You can only do Suez Canal twice a year ... I
