  1. Well is everyone still with us. Darlene and I are vaccinated but still restricting our outside activities. We did have a Mother's day dinner with her 2 sons and 2 grand sons all vaccinated with no masks inside a restaurant. Hopefully you have all gotten vaccinated or will have done so before your next cruise. I doubt we will try to cruise this year although I really would like to. Still seems risky. Have a great next cruise.
  2. Thanks for all the advice and help. I will be working with our new travel agent went flights begin to be available.
  3. Thinking about not taking Regent's flights but having our travel agent arrange our air transportation. What do most of you regular Regent cruisers do? Thanks and have a great next cruise.
  4. I have been looking at the ships Ponant has and I really like their size and the fact that most of them are new and were built for them. Don't know if I can convince my wife to try this line but I think I am going to try. Have a great next cruise.
  5. Thanks for the replies. I will look into them a little closer as we are going to be cruising on smaller ships for the immediate future.
  6. My wife and I like the sizes of the Pontant fleet and the line gets good reviews for its food and service. But we are both American English speakers and neither of us speaks or understands French. Would we be comfortable on a Pontant cruise? Thanks
  7. Thanks to everyone for your answers. They were very educating and made me realize we are not the only ones feeling a smaller number of passengers might be safer. For the person considering Seabourn we did 2 cruises on them several years ago and loved both of them. One was on the Odyssey, which they still have, and one on the Pride which is now with Windstar. Great food and service and loved not having to give someone my card every time we wanted a drink. Have a great next cruise.
  8. We have been on 6 Celebrity cruises 2015-2019 booking their suite class staterooms and have mostly enjoyed the cruises. we especially enjoyed the separate suite dining room and Michele's club. On the Eclipse, Solstice and Equinox we have had noise problems from the fact some idiot at celebrity put their suite class cabins right below the Lido deck and all the activity and noise that is generated up there. Hopefully they will go back and try to put better soundproofing in the roof of those cabins while the ships are in a timeout. Anyway we have decided to begin cruising again in 2022 but want to do it on smaller ships. So we have booked a cruise on Regent Seven Seas for July 30, 2022, Iceland to Copenhagen. It carries 700 passengers instead of the 2850 the Celebrity ships we have sailed on recently and we feel a smaller passenger load hopefully will help protect us from Corvid19. We are in our 70's and have been vaccinated and by then may have had a vaccine booster shot. Anyway interested in anyone has sailed suite class on Celebrity and also on Regent and if so what was your opinion? Obviously the cost is higher but actually not that much more when you consider they include business class round trip airfare in their price. Have a great next cruise.
  9. Thanks for the hotel and tour recommendations. We are really looking forward to this cruise. Have a great next cruise.
  10. Thanks for the replies. I called yesterday and left the information with the Regent agent I talked with who said she would make the change but I haven't seen anything from Regent or my TA yet. Have a great next cruise.
  11. We did book Regent Voyager for a 12 day cruise Reykjavik to Copenhagen in July 2022. I originally booked directly with Regent and will be switching the booking over to a TA today because the TA is offering a bonus for switching to them as well as promising better service. Has anyone else done the switch and how did it work out?
  12. Submitted my referral to Regent about 5 or 6 days ago and no response from them yet. I guess they operate on Island Time. Still excited about the cruise. Have been researching hotels and tours in Reykjavik and Copenhagen where we will staying for a few days before and after the cruise. We may decide to book our own airfare and save some money. Especially since we have to fly to Reykjavik and could use Iceland Air which seems to have some very affordable flights. Have a great next cruise.
  13. Just booked our first cruise since September 2019 (before Corvid19 (BC)) for July 30, 2022 from Reykjavik to Copenhagen. We normally take a minimum of 2 and sometimes 3 cruises a year but 2020 was a lost year and when you are in your 70's you hate to lose a year. Hopefully with the vaccines 2021 and 2022 will be better years. My wife has already had her 2 shots and I'm scheduled for my second shot March 18. Have a great next cruise.
  14. We will be in Copenhagen after a Regent cruise from Reykjavik in August 2022. We are looking at staying a few days after to see the city and maybe some of the countryside. I will be going back and checking the earlier posts in this threads to see if there is recommendations for hotels, restaurants and tours. But by posting here now I will be able to follow this thread in the future. Have a great next cruise.
  15. We have stayed in a couple of different hotels in Amsterdam but the Hilton Amsterdam was very nice and on Sunday's only have some of the best mussels either of us have ever eaten. It is a little ways from the center of town but not too far out to still see everything further in by foot.
