  1. Can anyone give me an idea when Europe 2022 is likely to open for bookings? thank you 🙂
  2. Thank you Travelcat2, yet again your post has been so useful! Today it was time to book our excursions - the first time cruisers/ nerves were playing up, I wanted to be ready. So searched the site and this post came up. Your instructions were great, easy to follow and between my list and your instructions I've managed to book 11 excursions in no time at all! Thank you 🙂
  3. When the world cruise is announced/sold - can you but just some segment(s) of it rather than the whole cruise?
  4. It is my understanding its somewhere around USD 1,400 p/p (I got a quote in NZD so using exchange rate - approximately). The trip to Cairo is on the second day, early start - 4.30 am. Flying to Cairo and back, a few hours there to visit the pyramids. As much as we would like to go there, I can't justify the exercise, to be honest
  5. I've just replied to your other post - apologies, I did miss it somehow. Thank you, this is very helpful - this is what I love about this forum, you have a few different, very helpful advice and you suddenly know so much more than before you've asked 🙂
  6. taxare, my apologies, I've missed this post 🙂 as I've been reading 2-3 threads on the subject I think some wires crossed in in my blond head, apologies 🙂
  7. Hi Jackie, Apologies, I thought I've replied yesterday but it appears that I had not pressed submit button! (I AM blond - literally!) 🙂 in the meantime someone else posted a link to our cruise's overland/overnight excursion (I still can't get there myself but can through the link (which is really weird!). I did use your tip about looking up similar sailings to get an idea of the excursions available and their cost, which had proved very useful as the list of total excursions in a port does not mean they are all offered. So thank you once again!
  8. Jackie, thank you for offering to help! I have to say that I've found so much useful information from your replies/comments on this forum! my email address is galina.bell@outlook.com We are booked on 16 April 2020 Abu Dhabi to Rome on Voyager (yes, I know your opinion about it - now, but I did not know when we booked 🙂 ) https://www.rssc.com/cruises/VOY200416/summary Thank you in advance! Galina
  9. taxare, please excuse my ignorance - this is our first cruise with RSSC. Where can I find prices - I cannot see them on the list of excursions, must be missing something? TYIA
  10. Travelcat2, I might be mistaken (looking in the wrong place?) but on our sailing (April 2020) i can't see Regent Choice clearly marked on the list of excursions. Some of these are obvious as are listed under "executive" (car, van etc) options. Others are not, however they come up in search if I filter by "Regent Choice" option. Is there an easier option to find which excursions are "free" and which are "extra cost"? we will be selecting based on what we want to do (subject to availability as we are not in 240 days class) rather than it being free. However I would still like to know what I am booking. And the second part to this question - there are no prices listed. Can you only know these at the time of booking? Thank you in advance 🙂
  11. Thank you , TC2! This is very helpful! I am always impressed how you take time and have the patience to answer questions of so many in great details, and to share your knowledge and experience! 💐💐💐
  12. Thank you, our invoice is from our TA, not Regent, and with other bookings we only ever got this. I shall ask him anyway . Thank you 🙂
  13. Hello fellow cruisers, i am aware that there are multiple threDs about excursions here, howeve I’ve failed to find answers to some basic questions so am hoping someone may help here. I am just going to list my questions in bullet-points. How do you know the exact time bookings open - does RSSC send an e-mail or one has work this out by him or herself? if you book an excursion but have not checked out yet - can “your” place be allocated to someone else who check outs before you? If you book an excursion which was not your preferred choice for port A, can you still waitlist for your preferred choice in A? can you waitlist for more than one excursion in the same port - to book the one which becomes available? How can you waitlist - the suggestion was made to call Regent, is there another option? If you are booked for an excursion in port A and another option becomes available, how do you rebook ? Do you need to cancel the already booked one first? if the excursions are free, how do you pay for them or check them out? thank you in advance!
  14. We've done a b2b on the Edge and absolutely loved it. There are two distinct groups (hardly anybody is "on a fence") - people either love it or hate it. We loved it, and were so glad we booked b2b! I know you are not a fan or "larger" ships but we have not been on a luxury line before (although did a river cruise) - our first Regent is booked for next year. However, the experience on the Edge was quite amazing - we never felt there were 2.5k people. There were always places to sit, to eat, as well as quiet places. The only time it was a bit crowded where were tendered in Grand Cayman, it was a bit rough and they could not use their own tender (as I understand it). We were booked in an infinite veranda, so we were not "secluded" in the Retreat (special suite area) and Luminae (restaurant). I have to say that their copncept of having 4 smaller MDRs with distinct dishes for each as well as "common" for all was great. We've tried most of the specialty dining as well and really enjoyed it all. I am sure you will hear totally different responses from other cruisers, especially long tern Celebrity loyalists. However, for us - this was great. Different, one has to have an open mind, but great!
  15. Treavelcat2, which cruise are you doing - I've tried to find this itinerary, but failed? ... Thank you
  16. We are on the Edge right now. Love the ship, but find it very, very noisy. The groups can hardly be heard as bass is so loud. Talked with the sound engineers they say it is the ship (material etc) which does not assist acoustics. Sadly, this thumping can be heard in other areas ad well :( hopefully they will find a way of rectifying it
  17. Thank you all for your replies, I will do a DIY job with limited resources I have at hand, as we are not in a suite, and it sounds like that sort of service may not be available. Thanks for your input 🙂
  18. Hello fellow cruisers, a strange question - does anybody know if there is a clothes repair/alterations service onboard Celebtity ships? Due to unforeseen circumstances hubby had to buy a new trousers and he really needs them for the cruise (we are boarding tomorrow) . Thank you in advance
  19. Bob! Thank you so much for your detailed, well thought through post, which, no doubt, you would have taken a time to compose! I found it very useful in z number of ways. Firstly, that I am not mad (yet!) and there is nothing wrong with my head/phone/iPad that I could not use either of the apps! Secondly, I’ve learned how to shortcut the site, and thirdly, that using a website gives its advantages! Thank you once again! I raise a virtual glass to your real help with virtual reality! 🍷👍😊
  20. It is my understanding you can only book in onboard. We have two sailings in January - there is no option for booking MC.
