  1. Yikes ...daughters holiday in Aus this year already pushed back to 2021 ...looks like she will loose a fortune if they wont allow any travel .....plus theres 2 relatives wont be allowed to come to a wedding in UK May 2021 which has been moved from june 2020 .....
  2. Do not recomend going out in the evening in Durban ...enjoy dinner on the ship is by far the best option
  3. Virtually all the ports on Voyager Nov 2nd cruise are high risk Covid
  4. Precisely thats what normally happens in the UK and our Gov has effectively banned cruising for over 70s so cant see Nov 2nd Voyager being on the cards
  5. I am guessing they hope all who are booked on Nov 2nd out of Barcelona will simply use the 15 day cancel option ...this means Regent have had use of their money for nearly a year by the time refunds get processed The fact that many were on a B2 B on the previous leg which was indeed cancelled and they were clearly told by " Charles at Regent UK customer services )" that Nov 2nd would be too just adds to the frustration I feel exceptionally sorry for entire travel and tourism industry but those who love to cruuse and who are in their Golden years the loss of at least 12 months of cruising is devastating especially since at 80 travel insurance is a nightmare
  6. Nov 2nd Voyager cruise all its ports are in Europe in countries with serious Covid restrictions and theres no way anyone from UK will be allowed to fly in and if they did get on that cruise they will have to self isolate for 2 weeks on the return from Lisbon
  7. Regent sure needs to sort things PDQ because Nov 2nd sailing on Voyager is just 30 days and air tickets need to be booked or cancelled they wont wait
  8. Does anyone see Nov 2nd Voyager cruise Barcelona to Lisbon cruise sailing ? Seems theres been no anouncements from Regent which most expected to happen today
  9. Virtually every port around the Med will not allow tourists in because of Covid spikes so cant see sadly how any of the Nov med cruises can go ahead because you cant enter from a flight either or if you return to the UK its 2 weeks full lockdown at home not even allowed out to buy food
  10. I thought announcements on future sailings were made at end of each month
  11. Have been to St Petersburg twice ...first time was with a Red October tour and 6 if us and an itinery we chose our guide was truly excellent ...Hermitage is mostly Old Masters and theres only so much of them some people can take ...the Gold Room is an add on but its fantastic and theres another objects Gallery in Hermitage i would love to have spent more time in I loved Catherines Palace and Peterhoff and was incredulous at the Malachite columns etc in Church if Spilled Blood or was it Cathedral ? I cannot wait to return and be able to go to the Faberge Museum that would be my No 1 choice instead of Hermitage
  12. Yes another slap in the face for all those who have done the days to earn the various perks of free Wi Fi or free Laundry ....will they increase our other benefits to make up for this ? Sadly i very much doubt it So long as they do not remove the laundry room too ...because actually i tend to prefer to simply do my own washing even though i have had free laundry for quite a long time

  14. Yes theres an equivalent cruise in Oct 2021 but its more expensive than the equivalent cruise in May or Sept we are looking at I am not aware there was any special deal on the cancelled cruise and it was booked in the summer As all pricing is cruise only i compare eggs with eggs .....flights are down to me Yes i prefer to cruise these days for a variety of reasons and prefer Regent ....had my fill of timeshares, self catering etc and hotels
