  1. I wonder what his parachute is when they announce the merger early next year.
  2. Exactly, the money to spend is there. This executive said the focus would be on giving them exclusive and unique experiences, which is what they already do, just for a different demographic. Not many changes would be needed on the actual boats at this point.
  3. Speaking to an executive at another luxury line recently, this big shift in demographic is very much on their radar. Especially for getting the boats back out to sail ASAP. It's unfortunate for all the loyal customers, but as we all know, the cruise companies are in business to make money first and foremost.
  4. I'm not a doctor or in the medical field, but I've read in several places that for a vaccine to be approved it only needs to be 50% or more effective. If this is truly the case and with so many different versions coming to market, how do you envision a cruise line implementing this? Would a line partner with one specific vaccine maker?
  5. I think you are confusing Regent with Silversea. There was no take over that i'm aware of. They've been with NCL since 2014 I believe.
  6. You can make special requests for meals or a dish to be "always available". Regent will do all they can to try and get the dish you want or try to acquire a special food item. For us, we love pomegranate and make a special request for it, last year in the Med our butler started storing them in our room when he realized the ship was running out and wasn't going to get any more. We've also requested special dinners either in our room/balcony or outside by the pool (before they started opening the pool grill for dinner). On some cruises, they also offer going into town with the head chef
  7. We are currently booked on this cruise as well with our extended family (16 of us including the kids). We will miss not doing a xmas cruise this year, so that savings justified the extra costs for this one.
  8. The Carnival webinar was applicable to all their lines (including Seabourn). As other posters have mentioned, all passenger cruise ships are going to have to live under the same rules, regardless of price point or ship size. Agreed that some brands/ships will be easier to implement these new rules than others though.
  9. FYI - Last year on Voyager, our muster station was in Horizon lounge and we did not have to go outside. This was in Athens and weather was perfect that day. Also on Explorer last year, our muster was in Pacific Rim.
  10. I'm amazed Regent is still selling space for the 2021 World Cruise.
  11. I only caught the tail end of it, but Jim Cramer on CNBC yesterday morning said something about US cruise lines now planning to not start their operations until Q2 of 2021. NCL he championed as being able to survive this, based on FDR's previous comments of financial sustainability. Any one else catch this yesterday, maybe they can elaborate on everything he was saying?
  12. Don't forget FdR will leave with a very nice package, while loyal Regent customers will be left wondering what will happen to their deposits...
  13. Coincidentally Dr Gottlieb is now on CNBC doing an interview.
  14. There wasn't a purpose in the first place, other than to reassure you that you were part of the "First cruise to cancel from Regent". Sounded pretty insecure if you ask me...
  15. We've had hits and misses with butlers on Regent, but overall they've been a benefit. What we've learned is that the butler becomes your first point of contact for anything you need. Tours, dining reservations, setting up anything special in the room, or issues along your voyage. Special things our butler has done for us have been: - Securing a larger table for us and our new friends at Compass Rose, at a set time. - Coordinate a galley or bridge visit - Getting special food request together. We like pomegranate, but forgot to put it on our pre cruise request card. Ou
