  1. “Generally, insiders buying up their corporation's stock is an indication that the stock will recover. Sadly, In don't see that in the cruise industry.” Generally, that is the case and I would agree. However, FDR and other cruise line executives are currently in negotiations with the Federal government and banks. If they receive assurances of a bailout and purchase their own stock now, they have serious legal and publicity issues. I would not expect to see any insider trading activity until there is a clear resolution.
  2. Very sad. I feel so badly for all affected. I respect NCL for making this tough decision.
  3. Norwegian stock trading halted. All cruises suspended effective 3/13 resuming 4/11.

  5. How is Regent Splendor allowed to board the ship tomorrow when the state has called for the cancellation of all gatherings of 250 or more people? There may not be 250 passengers but adding the crew?
  6. Rallydave- It’s ok to underline and use bold print. Obviously, it’s not ok to use caps for emphasis. travelcat- “The only negative to that is that there could an uproar if someone received something that another person did not receive.“. You mean like free cruises? Also, isn’t it a bit out of line to say that people in South America do not read cruise critic?
  7. Thanks Wes. That is really good information.
  8. Wes, Thank you the recommendation of the Eurostars hotel.
  9. First night dining in Compass Rose after 10 days onboard? That’s a lot of specialty restaurant reservations.
  10. TCat, You are too funny! Looking forward to a picture of you in the theater with your seasick glasses and Bose headphones on in the Pacific Ocean! Enjoy your cruise and please keep posting! We missed these kinds of posts from you!
  11. Thank you for make this board interesting and entertaining. Please don’t be so modest. You started threads on both boards with over 300 posts. You may not know anyone on Crystal, but you made sure they knew you and that you were staying in the Crystal Penthouse.
  12. Of course you do...;) And yet you post when you are staying in the Crystal Penthouse, Master Suite, etc.? 😂
  13. We couldn’t agree more with what The Cat posted noting the differences. We enjoy the Celebrity suite experience and even Royal Caribbean suites on occasion, especially with family, but our favorite cruise line is Regent!
  14. Thank you for letting us know. Did the upgrade or upsell fairy visit you yet again? Those are beautiful suites!
  15. Has anyone stayed in this suite? Is there an issue with low ceiling or noise?
  16. Cat, I guess no charge equates to free. Too bad air was not included, maybe next time. “Although the ship was full, management from Corporate made their suites available for viewing (with someone in the suite to assure that nothing was taken or messed with).” That’s disturbing. Obviously, suites were occupied. Amazing to learn that corporate accompanies uninvited guests to a suite when occupants are away so prying eyes can peruse one’s “private” space. Sounds familiar. A poster a few years ago discussed viewing upper suites mid cruise on Oceania. I guess “corporate” makes these tours available? Is that a Regent Choice small group tour?
  17. Cat- Thank you for that explanation. Our experience vs your tours differ, but I agree and respect everyone’s choices. BTW, who arranges these tours of suites? Also, does your TA offer free cruises on Regent and NCL?
  18. I totally agree with Pies4u regarding Explorer PH suites. We love the layout and the bathroom is great with separate water closet and fabulous shower (Wow!). Maybe the reason Regent changed Splendor PH is they listened to opinions from people who have never stayed in one. ”Don’t knock it ‘till you try it”. That is, unless you’re like some who seem to always get a generous upgrade or upsell offer 😉!
  19. We are currently on Symphony in winds of 50-60 knots since last night. Captain informed us due to the storm our arrival into New Orleans will be delayed until 12 noon tomorrow.
  20. Bait & Switch or misrepresentation? Gerrie, Have you tasted Germain Brut? Your opinion?
  21. Hambagahle, you posted: There are two "Germain" champagnes - Champagne Paul-Etienne Saint Germain from Epernay and Champagne Germain Pidansat from Avirey-Langey Which one? Both are appélation contrôlée so both "real" champagnes but Eperney is the very centre of the Champagne area - Avirey-Langey is way south, in fact south of Troyes. Probably "limite" for the appellation. As you can see from the picture above, the champagne being served is neither. Can you give us your opinion on the Germain Brut being served onboard? After reading your posts, I value your opinion and palate. Thank you
  22. On our recent Explorer cruise, we requested Montaudon. We were told it was not available. The only included champagnes were Jacquart and Germain Brut, pictured in the Vivino screenshot above. By the way, on our Celebrity cruise last month, Montaudon was included in Michaels Club and in our suite.
  23. I believe the name of the show was “Around The World”. We were disappointed the entertainment staff could not come up with something a bit more creative than copying Krew Kapers.
