  1. The last time I was onboard it was the Tuscan Grill that was used Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. I will have to rethink the cruise I just booked. After paying for air and the deposit I just checked the planner. Several ports there is just 1 excursion my husband (73) can take. Totally crazy that we cannot even do a walking tour in Zadar, however in Dubrovnick he can take the extremely strenuous Game of Thrones tour. Makes no sense to me at all.
  3. What a crazy 24 hours for that Captain!!!!
  4. The 1st medical disembarkation in Nassau was a guest, not a crew member. It was an elderly woman, she was accompanied by her husband (whom I later found out has alzheimer's), The woman had grey hair and had difficulty breathing. She was conscious as she was loaded onto the ambulance. The 2nd medical was also a passenger who was in a coma. We left Nassau just before 11pm and when I checked MarineTraffic we were at a speed of 22.3 knots which meant we should have been able to reach Miami by 6am. Not sure what happened to cause the late arrival. It is possible to reach Nassau from Miami in about 5 hours.
  5. the crew did an amazing job yesterday and today. There were a lot of upset guest because of the extended delays this morning. We were told via a letter to our cabin this morning that disembarkation would be delayed by 1 hour. This was extended and extended. There was nothing mentioned about the crew member's death, however yesterday (New Year's day) at 10am there was a Code Mike to the room service area on deck 5.
  6. Anyone going on this trip. It will be our first time on Regent as well as our first TA. Looking forward to the trip. We'll be celebrating a milestone birthday onboard as well.
  7. Anyone going on this cruise????
  8. Yes explore old Montreal, the port is right there. Here's a video that might help you decide.
  9. Crystal and Cunard both provide excellent enrichment programs during at sea days. They are about the best for longer at sea voyages. However for Cunard you'd need to be in one of the Grills
  10. Having been on the Azamara Quest in March, I'm looking forward to seeing what the Riviera is like. Never sailed with O or NCL before. We weren't over joyed with the Quest or the old R ship. There were aspects we liked a lot, however the cabin and bathroom size left us feeling disappointed. The ship's size and layout were excellent and the staff were very good. The casino is empty because Azamara will not put any money into it. Most of slots are at least 25 years old and there is no real attraction there in the evenings. Onboard entertainment on Azamara is also lacking.
  11. You need a passport for entry to Bermuda. Canada and Bermuda have similar entry requirements. If they were going to be denied entry into Canada, It is also possible they would have trouble with entry into Bermuda as well.
  12. Having been there in March with Azamara it's worth having a tour booked for going to explore the city. You can explore on foot and it is OK, Do not be put off by the area immediately surrounding the port, the city square is very nice once you get there. However you should know in advance this is a VERY poor city.
