  1. Nobody has mentioned that with Regent Business class air is included. There is no way I would fly economy to Europe. As to age difference. We have met plenty of young people on Regent. Usually they are traveling with grandparents. There is also the entertainment group and they are all and sociable. Besides, being on your honeymoon you want to spent time alone and who cares about the age of other passengers. If you like to go to a disco late at night, Regent is not for you. If you want the show and a night cap before retiring or dancing till midnight, Regent is fine. I don't think there is
  2. We are also booked on this cruise although it does not look good. Canada is now requiring a negative Covid test no longer than three days before arriving. We have always taken the three day pre-cruise and have been happy with them. Nice hotels, good guides, and a good way to see the city without having the work of planning and finding private tours. Our flight arrives at 3:15pm so we are OK. Whenever we have arrived early we have found the earliest rooms are ready is noon. You can book a room for the previous night so they will have a room ready for you. If you do, do it on your own. Regent ch
  3. GoArmy, how do you know Regent will cancel Tokyo to Vancouver, April 2021 next week? We are booked on it and have no cancelled waiting to see what happens this month. Forevertravel
  4. There may be one formal night but is optional. You may see some men wearing tuxes but not too many. My husband wears a suit. Women wear nice dresses but again not all. Yes, there is a make up mirror at the desk. If you don't have one, ask your cabin steward. Enjoy your cruise.
  5. It was cold. I always bring something to cover my shoulders at night and during the day. Regardless, it was a wonderful time and everything was nice. Have a great cruise.
  6. I was there in October and later this December. It was pretty cold in the restaurants and bars. I always bring a shawl to wear at night and a light sweater or hoodie during the day. We were in the Caribbean in October and Brazil/Amazon in December. For whatever reason they keep the open areas cold.
  7. We had children on our Mariner cruise this past December and had no issues. The children were well behaved. In fact, one four year old became the darling of everyone. As far as I know, Regent does not encourage or discourage children, however, families traveling together will want their children with them. On Summer and holiday cruises you will encounter some children.
  8. We just returned from cruise on the Mariner from Rio to Miami. We did the Regent pre-cruise tour of Rio. I was a bit concerned since some people had written that Rio was not a place to visit and it was dangerous.We loved Rio! It is a beautiful city and the views from Sugar Loaf or Christ Redeemer were awesome. We stayed at the JW Marriott in Copacabana (the other choice was the new Fairmont). The hotel was across the beach and service was excellent. I heeded advise and never wore any jewelry (not even my wedding rings). We walked from hotel to nearby restaurants. We never had any incidents. Ho
  9. We are leaving Friday for Rio. We are spending three days in Rio and boarding the Mariner on the 17th. We did not get Yellow Fever shots. Regent does not require them and based on what our doctor said, and reading about people who took this cruise we opted out of it. We do not take malaria pills either. We never took them when on safari in South Africa. I'm bringing repellent for clothes and ourselves. Regarding your other questions I agree with all answers. We always manage to get one or two additional nights at specialty restaurants. We have cruised with Regent for 11 years and have nev
  10. For some crazy reason I always get a birthday card but my husband doesn't. Go figure.
  11. We had to do the survey online this past October. I had no issue with it except that we had Internet issues (we were on the Mariner) and the day prior to disembarking everyone wanted to do the survey. Furthermore, some people didn't feel comfortable doing it online. I think Regent is taking for granted that everyone is computer savvy. One gentleman in particular was having a fit in the computer room and didn't even know how to log on. Fortunately, our TA who was traveling on this cruise took the time to get him set up. I was busy doing mine and so were others. I'm sure that like every thing el
  12. We cruised with them this past October and loved them. They are both wonderful but Kashia is incredible. She has so much energy. It was lots of fun dancing with them in the Star Lounge. Kashia told me they were scheduled to be on Splendor.
  13. We have taken lots of cruises with Regent and never had an issue with included tours. I love that I can see what they offer, book them, and never have to do lots of research and/or find reputable guides. We have been lucky that we have had good guides. I can't think of one tour that was bad. I don't think we have had more than 30 people on a bus and that's manageable. That said, we all have different tastes and if you prefer private tours, please do. I don't want to worry about organizing or finding a tour guide for a private tour.
  14. You're responsible for baggage fees. Regent always mentions to check with airlines as to baggage fees. What I usually do is take the airline credit and buy first class tickets. You can usually get reasonable first class tickets that won't be a lot more than the credit Regent gives you.
