  1. Some refunds are automatically done by computer, some have to be done manually.
  2. Late June is my guess...maybe early July. You are never going to stop this virus, you just don't want the hospitals overloaded.
  3. They won't cancel a June 15 cruise until a few days before. ANd keep in mind, the faster people get sick, the faster this ends...with the downside being more people will die. But there will probably be a time that NYC is safer than other paces because it has burned through the people there. Anything thinking this won't ultimately infect everyone is dreaming...the hope is to push it back far enough that you can actually get some medical care.
  4. And what stops someone from filling it out themselves rather than potentially losing a $40K cruise? I am not suggesting this as a course of action but pointing out that without verification it is nothing more than a piece of paper.
  5. If Regent puts this policy into place AFTER booking and BEFORE putting it into the contract they are going to be refunding a lot of cruises.
  6. I've seen them as well...and they are , no doubt, much smarter than I am . While cash and cash equivalents are hard to hide, I think the expenses will be able to be cut more than currently estimated...cut or deferred.
  7. Hope not but I am in 40's with no health issues so not worried for myself....more so for family.
  8. I am already ahead and banked my profit. Now I play with someone else's money. I understand that some people don't like risk and that's fine...but I am pretty good at catching things.
  9. They all have about 12 months operating capital and will be sailing by July or August....that's my free opinion. In the meantime, ride the cruise stock rollercoaster and make some extra cruise money.
  10. No, that's not so bad. Try flying 30 hours to Bali to get on a ship only to be told that because you flew through HK (booked by Regent Air) that you can't get on the ship. More importantly, Regent DID THE RIGHT THING and took excellent care of us! Have a little faith people...there are a lot of people hurting in the world right now.
  11. I've seen a refund in 3 days and also 35 days....those are the extremes I have seen. But I have only had two. Both Feb 12.
  12. No - if Regent cancels you should be able to choose between 100% refund and 125% FCC.
  13. It's not a cash-flow issue, these refunds are done manually.
  14. I have a number of cruises booked over the next 18 months and I can't wait to get back out there...Obviously no one will be for a while, or however long it take to hit a majority of the population, but I am not afraid to travel.
  15. I was told if you bought the cruise before the medical waiver was instituted and you are refused boarding because of this then you will be 100% reimbursed. Ask your TA to call Regent and ask them this question. If you don't have a TA, you call and ask for it in writing.
