  1. Our favorite Regent cruise was the Circumnavigation of Australia Dec./Jan. 2018-19. Good staff, crew, lecturers, and passengers. Regent went “all out” to make the cruise special from traditional onboard activities—Country Fair, ship barbecue, benefit auction, etc., to special events—preCruise dinner with animals, New Year’s Eve in Bali, Australian Open. And, we got to Sydney and home without incident!
  2. Three cruises cancelled—July 2020 Navigator, December 2020 Navigator, April/May 2021 Explorer. Five reserved, starting with B-to-B September/October Explorer; hopeful, but won’t be surprised if this is cancelled. No FCC’s. Looking for some good news!
  3. We very sadly cancelled the same cruise(s) last week. No way Explorer is sailing from Tokyo on April 6. Moved it to 2023. 2022 is hopefully already filled with wonderful Regent cruises. We were going to Tokyo early to visit friends we met when we lived there. Looking forward to seeing them in 2023, which will be our 50th anniversary.
  4. Thought World Cruise information was to be released today.
  5. We have happily booked excursions for two cruises, and in September will book ones for a b-to-b. We are well aware that this is “magical thinking,” but it is fun to do. Besides, maybe something wonderful will happen, and we will actually sail on at least one of these!
  6. We got to Esperance on the Mariner Australian Circumnavigation in 2019. When I am asked about favorite places Regent has taken us, Esperance is first. Took a wonderful all day tour in a school bus. Lucky Bay and kangaroos were one stop of many beautiful beaches we went to that day.
  7. Thought this topic was about Regent cancelling cruises?
  8. Agree. Regent did change the deadline to 60 days for our July 28 cruise and cancelled the cruise before that deadline. We have a final payment due this week for a Dec. 22 trip, wishing for the same sensible deadline change again. Do not think it will happen.
  9. We felt exactly the same when notified by our TA yesterday. Hopefully, we will meet you onboard.
  10. Received email from our TA this morning that our final payment due 2/28 is now due 5/28. Navigator, 7/28, Copenhagen to Amsterdam.
  11. My favorite part of the Sydney-Sydney cruise on Mariner last year was the southern and west coasts of Australia. Esperance, perfect white beaches. Fremantle (Perth), wish the ship had overnighted there. Wishing you a continuing good and safe world cruise!
  12. I was not expecting a First Class seat; simply an aisle seat in any row so I could stretch my leg.
  13. Sorry, should have been clearer. It was a 3 1/2 hour charter flight.
  14. Just returned from Silversea expedition cruise to South Georgia Island and Antarctica. All expedition activities were excellent. In our personal opinion, Silversea did not rate an excellent in several areas that can be directly compared to Regent. Service was about equal. Food was not—missed the variety and flexibility of the Compass Rose menu. A fee was charged for the Cloud’s specialty restaurant, which we ate in once. Quality of food and service in La Dame was not as good as most of our experiences in Regent’s specialty restaurants. By far the worst area was the roundtrip coach transfer pro
  15. Correction to my post, #212. We sat in window and middle seats in the last row, not aisle and window.
