  1. According to this Cruise Critic article: https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/5206/?et_cid=3416591&et_rid=16977642&et_referrer=Boards Regent is scheduled to start sailing on 1 JUL 2021. However, no details as to whether all ships will commence at this time or if it will be a staggered schedule. Interestingly, the Regent web page has no info (slow day at work). It gives us a glimmer of hope for our eastern Med cruise in October. Let's hope so because I need a cruise fix pronto. It's been way too long since my last Regent cocktail. Z and TB
  2. Great pics!!! Our next cruise (hopefully) is on the Nav departing Miami mid May to NYC. Can’t wait!!! Z and TB
  3. We live in Broward County and only got intermittent rainfall and wind gusts. Very grateful to have dodged that bullet. On the other hand, Beebop Bonnie and her sister were apprehended for reckless endangerment for surfing in the storm and resisting arrest. Bonnie was caught with a bottle of Hendricks she took from her last Regent Cruise. Damn, I need a cruise. Z and TB
  4. Does anyone know when Regent will publish cruise itineraries for the second half of 2022? I need a cruise to plan and fantasize since we’ve had one already cancelled and one we had to cancel. Thanks and I hope yous all have a great weekend. Z and TB
  5. For all U.S. folks, I hope you had a great Fourth of July weekend. During these times, it’s nice to relax with special friends and enjoy a special holiday. We met with Beebob Bonnie and her sister who we cruised with last March on the Explorer and had a great time. We had a nice BBQ and great conversation. During our soirée, we FaceTimed with Travelcat and woke up her husband, Dennis, and he had on some nifty pajamas for his siesta. It would not have been an official time with Z and TB unless someone got sick and surprise, it was me. Too much Sangria mixed with rum and no chow. Z and
  6. Lol. If you remember, during our Rome to Miami transatlantic cruise, I actually brought a portable hand cart to carry home all the Italian wine I bought. Z and TB
  7. That’s what we hope to do. We are still waiting to hear from our TA to see if it’s doable. Option B is to keep it as a place holder for when Regent publishes their cruises for the rest of 2022. Our ideal cruise would be sailing along the Western European coast to see Bordeaux for the wine, stopping in NW Spain for the end of the Camino De Santiago, and anywhere in Portugal. Z and TB
  8. I was shocked when I read an email from my TA informing us that our Apr 2022 NYC to LON cruise was cancelled due to “scheduling changes.” In return, we each got $500 FCC and the pleasure of spending $2k more per person to rebook a similar cruise. Not too happy at this time. Z and a P*ssed off TB
  9. Thank you! We went to our favorite Italian restaurant for our anniversary dinner. We love the place, but Pietro, the chef, moved on so the food was not as good. But, the wine was excellent! It was so weird going to a restaurant after not having been to one for so long. Last time we ate out was on the Explorer on 12 March at an epic dinner with the usual suspects in Prime 7. Z and TB
  10. Bill: would love to cruise with yous also. Not only because we are USAF brothers, but you also live in one of my old haunts, South Carolina. You can bring us some good BBQ and I can tell you about the great BBQ massacre of 1992 conducted by The Boss. We have four upcoming Regent cruises. Pick one and we can rock the boat! Z and TB
  11. Well better a late reply than no reply. Sorry I took so long, but I sort of checked out from CC for the past few weeks due to all the negativity and talk regarding Covid. It’s like CNN and Fox News had a kid and grew up to be CC. I’m actually wrapped up pretty tightly, but usually a positive person who hates negative vibes while being balanced out by The Boss who keeps me on a tight leash. You are correct! I’m retired Air Force, 28 years‘ worth of great fun and lifetime friendships. You know what it can be like. Regarding trying out Regent, we were in your position about seven years a
  12. Bill: welcome home to your daughter and glad she is back safe and sound. is she going to be a lifer like her pop? I don’t miss the deployments, but miss the camaraderie. Z and TB
  13. Well let’s see this thread flourish and stay on a positive note. My first thoughts about what to write from my perspective are all the funny things that have happened to me while cruising. Nothing wrong with a little self-deprecating humor to keep it light. Looking forward to see how this thread goes. Z and TB
  14. I hope it’s the splendor cruise departing on. 28 Nov. We have four couples sailing with us and it will be a hoot. Z and TB
