  1. Hope we finally meet on a future Regent cruise. I have six Regent and will probably book Celebrity for next summer. Be well! sheila
  2. I am reposting this because there are two topics on the same issue….. We were scheduled to sail on Celebrity Edge Saturday August 7th. On July 30th, we were advised that we will need the results of a covid test, taken within 72 hours of boarding, due to seven cases of Covid onboard that week. Not a major problem to get the testing. We were able to schedule test at a local CVS. Here are the facts: However, in the same timeframe, we were advised by our community.. an over 55 community in Palm Beach County Florida … of new, additional Covid infected people here. This number has reached more than 20 in just two weeks. All were vaccinated and two were hospitalized. I have health issues and was advised that it would not be smart to sail at this time. Florida is now a hotbed for Covid. Largest number of hospitalizations since Covid began. Check the data. We contacted Celebrity to cancel and were advised we would get a full refund of our monies. Also, if anyone sailed and became infected onboard, they would be taken to a private plane and returned to their home, at Celebrity’s expense. They are to be commended for this decision. We decided to cancel. Celebrity Cruises stepped up to the plate. I hope that Regent will offer such courtesies. Sheila and Herb

  4. Thank you for your honest report. You sound like a truthful and logical person. Please keep us updated. sheila
  5. Herb and I are in our 80’s, with health issues. We are fully vaccinated. We continue to plan to sail on August 7th. We plan to wear masks in all indoor venues except for dining. We are also planning to be very careful and wear masks these next days before we sail. Let’s hope all goes well on the next sailing..July 31st. Look forward to all postings regarding Edge conditions these next few days. And, please..let’s stop arguing about speculations, data and details not regarding the topic of Edge and what is happening onboard. sheila
  6. See you on August 7th! Thanks for the info…just switched our boarding time to 11:30am. 🤞see you next Saturday!
  7. August 7th sailing….. hooray….got my luggage tags yesterday!
  8. Right now everyone gets free laundry. If you are gold or above and was entitled to free laundry, you get $50 pp OBC.
  9. Regarding Celebrity…. I forgot to include this… if you do not volunteer your vaccine certificate you must be tested before you board ship. During the cruise, there is another Covid test. Before you disembark take the last test, which will delay you disembarkation. And, this charge for the testing will be an additional $176. Per person, added to your folio. This is in addition to the separate areas for dining, shows etc. And the ability to visit the ports on tour own, if you are permitted to get off. Not to pleasant to cruise this way. sheila
  10. Just checked. Some information available for use, but most will be available in November for a December cruise. Similar to our online checkin on Celebrity for our cruise in two weeks. sheila
  11. I don’t think so….however, we were just planning to relax, dine and enjoy the entertainment. We are not planning to take any tours but may get off the ship and wander a bit, where allowed. Been reading the reviews on the Celebrity CC. Folks really seem to be enjoying themselves. About 50% capacity. In most cases arrival at the pier to arriving onboard took less than 1/2 hour.
