  1. When .regent resume sailing will they stick to the current(I.e. old) schedules or introduce new ones?
  2. Further to my earlier post. Just received our kN5 masks. They are made in China!
  3. We intend cruising again as soon as it opens up. But with hindsight we should not have cancelled in advance of Regent cancellation as we. like many many others on this thread, have no right to a refund but have a Future Cruise Credit in a company that might go under. The cause of our problems is Covid19, but we cannot sue a virus. Nor can we take a group action against China which seems to have started the virus either inadvertantly or, as some conspirancy theory addicts have suggested, deliberately. The most we can do is boycott chinese goods etc.

  5. We all have to support Regent at this time of great uncertainty. After all many of us have a lot of money tied up rith them in the form of 'future cruise credits'
  6. We cancelled a cruise which was subsequently cancelled by Regent. This was after we had paid in full and when it became obvious that cruising was going to be suspended for some time. We were given a future cruise credit as at that was the only option available at the time we cancelled. Subsequently, and after cancelling themselves, Regent offered to those passengers who had not cancelled a choice of a refund or a future cruise credit. Should not this option also be given to those who had cancelled under the previous terms?
  7. Sadly if many or even some of of the restrictions mentioned in this thread apply when cruising resumes, we are unlikely to book. We cruise to enjoy and even just social distancing would be too much. We were due to cruise on Regent in May but that has been cancelled. We will wait to re-book until Covid19 is a bad memory. Bring on the vaccinations, but as I am 86 I am likely to be at the back of the queue, which I find acceptable.
  8. You are right bbtondo. But it is really wishful thinking. All we can hope for us that the cruise industry will survive and be able to honour our credits. We hope to resume cruising as son as it again becomes viable.
  9. We were due to join a cruise in May and had paid a deposit. I took advantage of Regent’s offer to pay in full and convert to a ‘future cruise credit’. If, when sailings start again and we are no longer fearful of the virus, there are special reduced offers for Regent cruises will we be able to take advantage of the special reduced rates using our credit?
  10. Many of us probably have Future Cruise Credits under the above plan. I have two questions. (a) What happens if we do not survive the pandemic? (b) What happens if Regent do not survive?
  11. We cruise two to three times a year, for the last few years invariably on Regent. We have another cruise booked on Regent, but unless they announce something soon and similar to Viking we are loathe to book another one with them.
  12. Just read the letter from Viking, letting all those who have booked a cruise and are thinking of cancelling an option of receiving a voucher for a future cruise within two years. Although we are not sailing until May we are getting very concerned as our Prime Minister has just announced that in the UK the number of cases is likely to reach epidemic levels. Are Regent likely to follow Viking's lead?
  13. If Regent are testing all new passengers and crew as they board and presumably refusing access to those that fail, in due course all on board all their ships could be virus free. This would only be the position if the test results were instantaneous and covered as well the possibility of harbouring the infection or being a carrier. How likely is this?
  14. In reply to Travelcat and Ronrick. On reflection, I suppose it is only the speciality restaurants, excluding Prime, that I find the menus need changing. We have had all the dishes that we think we would like from their current menus and would like a change. I should point out that we cruise on Regent at least twice a year. Variety is the spice of life, but stick to the cruise line you like.
