  1. For this cruise, the ship spends almost a whole month doing Australia & New Zealand. I know it's comparatively simple to skip/change a port here & there, but a month's worth??

  3. 3 cancelled, including the WC 2021. 4 booked, the latest being Jan 2022 to S. America & Antarctica (drive-by). This one is being financed by our cancelled Splendor cruise in July, which in turn was being financed by our cancelled AK cruise from last September... *Update: 3 more cancelled, including the most recently booked to S. America. This resulted in the Cruise Credit from our AK cruise being used again on an October 2022 cruise aboard Explorer in the Med. Onward & upward!! Or a glutton for punishment, I'm not quite sure...

  5. Just received an official email from Regent stating our 07/07 Splendor cruise has been cancelled. Refunds will be processed within 60 days blah, blah... That makes it 3 cruises cancelled, including the World Cruise.
  6. Unless they've changed the rules recently (since last January) long sleeves aren't required either.
  7. Lucky Bay & the kangaroos were (one of many) highlights of our W. Australia trip. 2 months on land, & then 30 days (ish) on the Voyager!!
  8. Does anyone have a link or a sneak preview of the 2023 WC they would care to share?? We're still booked on the 21 WC, but it's looking more doubtful by the day, almost; & the 2022 WC itinerary just doesn't do it for us, I'm afraid.
  9. Spent a week in Esperance last November, & the beaches were truly something else!!
  10. We would need something similar to what flossie009 said in Post # 51. Maybe I'm missing something here, (if so please enlighten me) but why are people so worried about a virus which has infected 0.26% of people world-wide, & 1.5% of the population of the US?? I fully realise that the media portrays it as a combination of Ebola, The Black Death, & The Zombie Apocalypse, but do we really need to be so scared?? 5 flights, 7 airports, numerous restaurant visits, too many shopping trips to count etc. etc. & we're still here, living our lives as normally as possible...
  11. I have heard (not done research...) that the main reason for wearing a mask in Asian countries (pre-Covid) is to protect against air pollution (smog, fine particles etc.) not airborne diseases...
  12. @UUNetBill Bravo, sir, bravo!!!! The most sensible post I've read for a long time. You have won the Internet!!
  13. No. But don't you think your question isn't a little self-righteous/holier-than-thou??
  14. Here's a thought: Every time you read something about COVID-19, just replace COVID-19 with "the flu" or a "bad URTI" (for the Yanks...) & carry on reading. See if it makes you feel better...

  16. Bravo!!! Most sensible/best thing I've seen on here about this whole thing. Have a brilliant cruise, & "noli illegitimi carborundum"...
  17. On our recent Voyager cruise in Asia, I was able to use Skype to call my Dad's landline in the UK every week. Even with the abysmal Internet onboard, it worked fine.
  18. A recent article from a reasonably respectable newspaper: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/oct/01/indonesia-cancels-komodo-island-closure-saying-tourists-are-no-threat-to-dragons We are booked to visit the dragons on our upcoming Voyager cruise. Hopefully they're on good fire-breathing form... Thanks for the tips about extra water & hats.
  19. On our last (first) Regent cruise, we had an OBC (refundable) & let's face it, there's not much to spend it on while onboard... So we cashed it out & donated most of it to the Crew Fund. We received a very nice letter from Management thanking us for our donation. Being a fellow Brit, the tipping culture sometimes passes me by too... I think our donation was round about $400, but it wasn't really our money in the first place...
  20. Great report. Bit cool for us though... We're off next month for W. Australia followed by the Voyager SIN-SIN-SYD in December. Would be great to bump into yourself & Brad some day. Take care, Nigel & Marion.
  21. The Intercontinental (Bayside) has a Car Rental drop-off counter inside. If you have to return to the airport, try & check-in to your hotel first. Leave all your luggage in your room, & it makes the return journey from the airport much easier!!
