  1. We are booked in Voyager Cabin 839 for our December Southeast Asia cruise. I think that is on the starboard side of the ship. Considering the heat and humidity I would rather have a balcony that is in the shade in the afternoon so the sun isn’t making the cabin warmer. For those who have done this itinerary which side of the ship should I choose? Thanks.
  2. I really enjoyed reading your pre-cruise posts and look forward to reading about the cruise.
  3. I love reading your trip report and look forward to each installment. We will be in Bangkok overnight as part of our cruise in December and will be staying at the Sheraton. I am looking forward to going across the river to Iconsiam Where did you eat dinner in the mall? We’re also taking a class at Blue Elephant cooking school Which cooking school are you going to?

  4. This sounds like a fantastic trip. Can’t wait to read all of the reports from everyone.
  5. I received an email yesterday from Regent informing me that I could now book my shore excursions. It also mentioned The Executive Collection which offers private cars and guides and to call Regent to find out about it. I called and would be able to book a private car for Saigon. The price was around double booking a private tour on my own but I have tons of shore credits that I probably wouldn’t use so I think I can use them for this. Anyway I will call tomorrow to confirm that. It is disappointing that so many excursions that were listed on the web site as previously offered excursions are not offered now. I was able to book something for all of our ports and even today nothing is sold out.
  6. Just wanted to post an update. I never received the PDF. I went online at 11:00 p.m. CST and it listed every excursion as not available. I thought I would give it one more go before I went to bed so at 11:20 p.m. I went online and every excursion was available! I was able to book every excursion with no problem. There were no new excursions listed and no many choices in each port. We want to book a private car in Saigon which was an option in the what was offered on previous cruises but not offered on our cruise. I will call my travel agent to find out if it can be booked on board.
  7. Thanks Rachel. I have been looking at the web site and selected some excursions for each port. The problem is that some that were listed yesterday are not listed anymore i.e. private car, etc. The selection is a lot smaller today with fewer excursions offered in each port.The two different Regent agents told me not to go by what is offered on the web side as the PDF will have the authentic list of excursions. I guess I will see when I can select the excursions at 11 p.m. CST tonight.
  8. I am really frustrated with my first Regent cruise and the ability to select shore excursions. We can select them April 10th but I am still not able to get the PDF e-mailed to me. There are some listed on the web site with prices but others that were there yesterday are no longer showing. When I try to have the PDF mailed to me it has the message that no shore excursions are available yet. I have called Regent a few times. I was told to not go by what is on the web site and wait for the PDF. This morning I was told that the shore excursion desk is having a problem with the PDF and I "should" get a PDF this afternoon once the problem is fixed. At this rate, I doubt that I will be able to log on to select excursions when it opens at midnight EST. Is this typical? My travel agent called yesterday and was told that the PDF is not available.
  9. Looking forward to reading your blog, especially as we will be first time Regent cruisers when we embark on the Voyager in December. Can’t wait to hear about your good and bad impressions. How is the air conditioning in the cabin? I like it freezing and am concerned since we will be in the heat and humidity of Southeast Asia. Anyway hope you enjoy the rest of your cruise.
  10. Susan. I was thinking of taking the cooking class when we are there on our Voyager cruise in December. Just wondering if the room is air conditioned. Also are you doing the Regent post cruise Singapore 3 day shore excursion? Since we we have many of the same ports I have enjoyed reading about your experiences. Thanks for your informative blog Bonnie
  11. Thanks for sharing your blog. I loved following along on your adventure.
  12. Thanks for all of the tips. Really helpful in planning our Bangkok overnight.
  13. @HotRoot. We will be on the Voyager in Cecember and want to stay overnight in Bangkok, too. I was thinking of booking our own transportation and hotel but am worried about missing the ship if we are on our own. <What did the destination desk arrange for you and did you book it when you were aboard the ship? Looking forward to reading about your experience. Enjoy the rest of the cruise
