  1. Regent has us at the Biltmore hotel in Coral Gables.
  2. Wonderful reporting. I can’t wait to hear more. I think we are all starved for any travel news! Thanks for taking the time to blog.
  3. I just booked 1 reservation in Pacific Rim before their excellent website crashed. Mine also said 1 of 15.
  4. Yippppeeee we are booked! Thanks to Marc and my new TA we got the suite we wanted. We are beyond excited.
  5. Rachel you are not alone! We just tried to book our excursions and experienced the same issues. If I see “A problem repeatedly occurred “ again I’ll scream! Luckily we are on a Transatlantic with 8 sea days. It is a painful process.
  6. Eno-Bob you are correct. We have stayed in the master suite and have booked day of dining in a specialty restaurant. The only time it has been a problem is in Pacific Rim. They would like to get at least a days notice for dining there. It is possible to eat at a specialty restaurant daily.
  7. What do you think the chances are for September 11 Splendor London to London??
  8. We had 3 cruises cancel. We were lucky to be stepping off the Splendor on March 12! June Mariner Alaska with kids and grandkids. October Mariner Mexico and the most painful July Voyager Norwegian fjords. The last canceled today! We are booked on the Splendor in September London to London. Does anyone think that will sail??
  9. Yes! That was by far our favorite cruise. We were on the Voyager. This July we are(were) going to repeat the cruise. We even have the same cabin. This time ending in Amsterdam. We are going to do the land program in Amsterdam. Pcardad says July will 100% cancel. We are so disappointed. This is our 3rd cancellation but the hardest. We were so looking forward to it. Our friends from Germany, who we met on the Voyager 10 years ago, were sailing also.
  10. My husband, sister and I were on a July 2015 Norwegian fjord cruise. After the cruise we were scheduled to go to Prague for a 3 day post-cruise tour. Imagine our shock when we meet before disembarking and find out we are the only ones who signed up. We had a private car take us to the airport and pick us up to take us to our city center hotel. We met with our private guide in the morning and spent three days with her. To say we were flabbergasted and impressed is an understatement. I still can’t believe Regent didn’t cancel the land tour.
  11. Yippppeeee I got the vaccine today. I am an RN working in an outpatient surgery center. Considered tier 2. I got the Moderna vaccine. So far so good. My sister got the Pfizer vaccine and had her second dose yesterday. Her only symptom was a sore arm.
  12. Is anyone else trying to book a penthouse or above?? We have never booked a WC before. My TA says they will review all requests and give you an answer in the next week or so. What?? This is after they took a hefty deposit just for the privilege of being on the list. What’s going on?? I can go online and fake book a concierge suite or below. I’m super frustrated. I would love to hear from other non world cruisers. Thanks.
  13. No, I haven’t seen any credits. We also had 2 cruises cancel June and October. My TA says don’t worry they will post when they can catch up.
  14. We stupidly did not complain. I know that everyone at our table was disappointed. They were all full world cruisers.
  15. We did this dinner in 2011. It was a 4 1/2 hour excursion. Drive to Medic Region(45minutes) arrive at Château Kirwan and visit wine cellars. (45 minutes) wine aperitif (15 minutes). Dinner at the reception room of the Château approximately two hours. Return to ship 45 minutes. $259 per person We were on a segment of the world cruise and I believe 3/4 of the ship went on this excursion. During the demonstration in the Wine cellar you could not see over the crowds of people. Dinner was average. I’ve had better on the ship. These pictures are in my scrapbook so please excuse the glare. If the excursion is the same I would pass.
  16. Thanks for the info Wes. I’m so excited to see where we will be going. Yippppeeee I can’t wait!
  17. Wes, do you know that the world cruise will be on the Mariner? If so count us in! Yippppeeee!
  18. I hope it sails past us. I’ll be on the lookout from beautiful Santa Barbara!
  19. Nail # 2! https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/23120-cruise-ships-won-t-sail-from-u-s-ports-until-sept-15.html
  20. We are on the October 12 sailing. If the Mariner sails we will be on the ship. I think the odds of sailing are decreasing every week. I say it has about a 40% chance. I have been an operating room nurse for 46 years. Wearing a mask is second nature to me. We have a big suite and I can picture us sitting out on the balcony most of the time. I’m ready to be your guinea pig! Just keep the margaritas flowing! Please let it sail!
  21. We will be with you SusieQft! Regent just applied our FCC from our canceled Alaska cruise to this sailing. This will be a perfect cruise to test the waters. We can easily drive to the Port avoiding air travel. I can taste the Margaritas already.
  22. We are also on this cruise with the same July final payment date. They still have not applied our FCC from our canceled June Alaska cruise. My travel agent called yesterday and was told we are in the queue. No idea how long it will be.
  23. I spoke to a crew member who was on the Navigator. There is still 450-500 Regent crew who transferred from the Navigator and Mariner and are on the Norwegian Joy. They are still in Los Angeles. Obviously getting antsy to go home. They have no idea when that will be. I asked if they will sail home. They said no fly, but have no sense of when airports will open. There are many nationalities aboard. It must be very frustrating for them.
