  1. If you are still looking for a sponsor email me. My email is at the bottom of my signature.
  2. We have an Alaska cruise scheduled for September and just verified what you posted....that our cruise is indeed now showing WAITLIST for every category. While they haven't officially cancelled the Alaska sailings it is looking more and more unlikely that there will be any Alaska cruises in 2021. I know they are trying to work something out with Canada but it is not looking too hopeful. I am so disappointed after carefully planning all the details of a pre-cruise trip to Denali (on our own), with all hotels, rental car, etc., as well as flights. This is really going to be devastating for Alask
  3. It does not look very promising for our Regent Alaska cruise (September 1, 2021). If it is canceled it will be the 7th vacation canceled...not all are cruises.
  4. We were supposed to sail on the new Silver Origin to the Galapagos last year, which of course was cancelled due to Covid. Thinking about booking again. The cruise that was cancelled started in San Cristobal and ended in Baltra. In looking at dates for the cruise we want to book, we are looking at one that starts in Baltra and ends in San Cristobal. I seem to recall that there were some differences in what you would see and which islands you would stop at. Does anyone know what the differences are?
  5. I don't understand why it becomes a FCC. Cash is cash, no? What difference does it make?
  6. Please explain how it converts your cash payment into FCC. My April, 2021 cruise was cancelled. I had paid the deposit on that cruise only (in 2018 when we booked it). Is there a reason why we would not want to roll it over to a similar cruise in April, 2023? How does it convert our cash payment to FCC?
  7. Knew it was inevitable that April 6, 2021 Tokyo cruise was going to be cancelled. Still, it's disappointing. We booked this cruise in 2018 when it first went on sale. After all the waiting, pre-cruise plans, preparation, choosing excursions, booking flights, and now having to do it all over again....but we want to do this cruise so are moving to an almost identical itineary in 2023. Luckily was able to redeposit the "miles" back in Frequent Flyer Accounts so miles will be there when we are ready to book air again. Next Regent cruise is in September, 2021. I hope that one is a go.
  8. Yes, I realize that. We rarely book the pre/post trips and usually do on our own. Sometimes the pre/post trips are free or low priced, like our upcoming cruise that starts in Tokyo has a couple options. And a couple of years ago we had an amazing pre cruise safari on our South Africa cruise. The cost was only $799 pp. Just have to figure out logistics with transfers, and booking the train. I think we'll definitely do Denali on our own.
  9. Our first Regent cruise was in 2009 with Regent. We always wanted to do it again so we booked it for 2021. Has anyone booked the pre-cruise land tour with Regent to Denali? It seems pretty expensive. The one I am interested in is $2,499 per person. It's 4 nights and includes the dome train to Denali.
  10. Looking at the new release of cruises for 2022 I like the October 11, 2022 Barcelona to Barcelona itinerary which is mainly Spain and the Canary Islands. It will give us a chance to try the Splendor (we love the Explorer) and all of the ports are new for us except Barcelona...we have been to Barceloa a few times. Has anyone been on a similar itinerary and if so, can you let me know what you think? The ports are Valencia, Alicante, Almeria, Granada, Gibraltar, Tangier, Arrecife, Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. I think October will be a good time to go there as well. Thoug
  11. I don't mind if you use me. carol@carolwolfe.com. I'm also in California.
  12. I got two emails from my TA regarding this new perk for the two Regent cruises we have booked in 2021. This is great news!
  13. We cancelled our December 5 Galapagos cruise a few days ago before the penalty would be imposed. We will get a full refund less $200. There appears to be a high rate of Covid in Quito and there is also a 14 day quarantine. While things may get better in December we did not want to take the risk. We'll rebook later when things become more normalized. Look forward to sailing on the new Origin ship at another time.
  14. We are booked on the Origin Galapagos December 5, 2020 cruise. The cruise is paid in full. We can cancel by August 6 without penalty other than the $100 pp fee. Ecuador currently has a 14 day quarantine requirement and the news says there is a recent surge in Covid cases. Was really looking forward to this trip but it looks like we will cancel.
