  1. We have been to the Canary Islands on cruises a couple of times, once on Regent. We found it very enjoyable with lots of things to see. October should be a perfect time to go. Go and ride a camel on Lanzarote!
  2. With respect to Japan, the country may allow some tourism in April 2021 on a “trial” basis in preparation for the Olympics. I doubt that would include cruises though. https://loyaltylobby.com/2020/10/05/japan-expects-to-allow-international-tourist-arrivals-on-trial-basis-from-april-2021/
  3. The planned meeting between cruise industry officials and the White House has now been postponed (understandably), so uncertainty continues. https://www.*****.com/2020/10/02/cruise-line-meeting-white-house-officials-postponed
  4. If you are referring to my post, a number of people noticed that the statement appeared on the Regent website yesterday (this was a screenshot of what Regent said taken by a Regent passenger when this notice was up). This information was subsequently taken down by Regent and now the October 31 date is back. It would appear that someone at Regent jumped the gun on an announcement that will likely come soon.
  5. Not what I was talking about. An actual change to the September 1 announcement, as quoted below on the Voyager roll call. General COVID-19 Coronavirus Travel Advisory Updated as of 1 September 2020 GENERAL TRAVEL ADVISORY The safety, security and well-being of our guests, crew and communities we visit is our number one priority. 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 embarking through December 31, 2020. In addition, we have suspended our Full 2021 World Cruise, along with voyages departing through April 2021 aboard Seven Seas Mariner, as well as the January 5, 2021 voyage aboard Seven Seas Voyager. For more information for impacted guests on these voyages, click here.
  6. People on the Facebook Group reporting seeing cancellation notices through November 30 or December 31 (depending on browser) on the RSSC website a few hours ago. Now it seems to have reverted back to October. Looks like someone hit the “go live” button too early. I suspect we will hear something later today or tomorrow.
  7. Turns out it was all a false alarm. What is worrying though is that 8 percent of the crew tested had false positives .https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/cruises/2020/09/28/covid-19-tui-cruise-12-crew-members-test-positive/3559971001/ .
  8. According to a TA website that shows available cabins, there are only 36 suites left (F, E and D), so it appears basically 90 percent sold. The remaining cabins are mostly non-shower or under La Veranda.
  9. Got a midship G shower just one door away from the one we have on the 2022 WC. Apparently, there is a huge waitlist.
  10. CLIA also submitted mandatory elements of health protocol to CDC (quotes FDR). https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/23531-clia-adopts-health-protocols-including-100-testing-for-passengers-and-crew.html
  11. Don’t know the one for 2023, but for comparison SSS discount for 2022 WC was $1500 for a G, and prior WC discount was the same amount.
  12. According to our TA, they are processing the 2021 world cruisers early next week, and then opening to others on the 23rd. Apparently, Regent already has a long waitlist of people waiting to book.
  13. Maybe Pcardad is not that far off. SeaDream just announced that Caribbean cruises will start in November. They will be entirely out of US waters, even though SeaDream qualifies for the CDC exemption. Interestingly, they start from Barbados, which can accommodate several large cruise ships. https://thepointsguy.com/news/caribbean-cruise-comeback-seadream/
  14. That was an absolutely terrible response from Regent. Despite everything, we were willing to consider booking the 2023 world cruise (assuming we like the itinerary), but now we will just hold off. That is no way to treat your customers.
  15. Here is an update from the State Department. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/traveladvisories/ea/passport-covid-19.html
