  1. Hello, Alan here. Please feel free to email me at areswfl@icloud.com and I will be pleased to provide you all of the necessary information. Be safe!!!
  2. This afternoon, June 19- Cruise Lines International Association, the leading trade organization for the global ocean-going cruise industry, says its member cruise lines have voluntarily extended the suspension of U.S. cruise operations until Sept. 15 amid coronavirus concerns. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention's current "no-sail order" is scheduled to expire on July 24, but no extension has yet been announced. CLIA's member lines carry 95% of the world's ocean-going cruisers. The new order will apply to all CLIA member ships that the current CDC order applies to – ve
  3. Marc, generally the terms and conditions that are in effect at the time you book will control. However, with the Regent Reassurance things change. When you look at their website there are overriding more favorable terms and conditions effective May 27, 2020. One set for reservations made by May 31, 2020 departing on or before December 31, 2020 and those reservations made between May 18 and July 31, 2020 for voyages departing by December 31, 2022. These only go into effect when you have paid in full. There appears to be an inconsistency on their website however. In their General COVID-19 Corona
  4. TC, When I first saw your new picture I thought the mask said "I'm sailing", not "I'm smiling". I hope you get to do both soon!!!
  5. "To provide even more space for responsible social distancing, we have reduced shipboard guest capacity." So...if this is still in place in April, 2021, on our Tokyo RT which has been sold out for almost two years, I wonder how they are going to choose who doesn't get to go???
  6. Kate-AHF, I can not tell if you have looked at the member referral credit thread. If not and you are interested, you may email me at areswfl@icloud.com for the information. Thanks for giving us all something nice to think about, a morning cup of cappuccino on our next cruise!!!
  7. Oceandream, generally I have my TA call Regent about a month after the referral, confirm they have it in my account and then they apply it to the cruise that I request. With everything going on now, I personally would just have her add it to other things that she may be calling her Regent contact about.
  8. I am sure that everyone on this board can agree we are all so thankful for the healthcare workers and first responders for their brave and tireless work. I am privileged to serve on the board of a hospital system and everyday I am awed by the selflessness of these individuals. Bravo to AMA for offering that! GOARMY, we are scheduled for the April Tokyo RT, and we are so looking forward to going! Thank you for your service to our country!
  9. TC, these river boats are operated and maintained by Scylla but contracted out by Tauck. They range from 85-130 passengers. I do believe that due to the close quarters river boats offer different challenges. I posted this because it was the first actual set of protocols that I had seen posted for any type of cruise. Again, purely speculation, I believe that the CDC is going to start with a heavy hand due to the Princess COVID situation. I have read that some hotels are limiting elevator use to one guest or family unit at a time. While that may be ok now, it's going to be much harder as they ge
  10. I know some of you strongly dislike when someone posts news about non Regent or non ocean cruises on this board. If you are not interested please don't read instead of torching the original poster. 😀 This is the operator of a number of river cruises including the Tauck river cruises. Since we can only speculate what the new procedures for Regent might be at this point, I thought it was interesting to see something that has actually been posted by a reputable company. I acknowledge there are significant differences between river and ocean cruising but I
  11. Bill, my dogs ignore me (except at meal time), my wife ignores me (except when we go shopping), my kids ignore me (unless they need something), please don't block me 😂
  12. I greatly appreciate your patience and loyalty as we all navigate through these evolving and unprecedented times together. Regent Seven Seas Cruises continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 coronavirus situation and the global health environment. With COVID-19 continuing to impact communities and ports around the globe, we have extended our voluntary temporary suspension of voyages worldwide to include sailings embarking through May 10, 2020. As a result, your upcoming voyage is canceled. ****VIDEO NOT INCLUDED HERE**** The health, safety and well-being of our guests, crew a
  13. Global Level 4 Health Advisory – Do Not Travel-Issued March 19 The Department of State advises U.S. citizens to avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19. In countries where commercial departure options remain available, U.S. citizens who live in the United States should arrange for immediate return to the United States, unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period. U.S. citizens who live abroad should avoid all international travel. Many countries are experiencing COVID-19 outbreaks and implementing travel restrictions and mandator
  14. Guests on voyages that are underway will conclude and they will be disembarked as soon as possible, and we will assist with travel arrangements home. BBWC, I'm not sure where you are getting this information? Please see the sentence above from the email I received. Thank you.
  15. Europe travel ban effective Friday at midnight (assume Eastern). Wow, you can't get all of those Americans home by then.....
