Regent Refund Roll Call

Recommended Posts

This thread is simply and ONLY to track how long it is taking to get refunds from Regent.  I will transfer the data from your posts into a spreadsheet that you can see at:


Please post the date your cruise was to sail and the date you requested a refund.  Then please come back and post again when you receive your refund.  If you already posted this information on another thread, please post it again here, because I am not going to search all the other threads to collect data. 

All the data will be transferred to the spreadsheet, and you will always be able to find it at the link in post #1.   By posting when you cancelled your Regent cruise AND when you received the refund, maybe we can see a trend and get an idea when future refunds will be coming.

Here is a fictitious sample (which I will remove from the spreadsheet after someone posts some real data):

scheduled sail date 4/22/20
cancelled excursions 3/8/20
cancelled cruise 3/11/20
no refunds as of 5/9/20

(This is my own data, but it is on Crystal, not Regent, and Crystal does not charge in advance for excursions.)

Portolan created a thread asking for input on when people get their refunds, but it has turned into a general discussion thread.  Repeated requests to keep it to a means to simply track CC members' experience with refunds have been to no avail.  Please do not repeat that experience here.   Specific suggestions on how to improve this thread are welcome, but otherwise please post your comments and stories on another thread or create a new one unless you are just offering data to put in the spreadsheet.

I would like to give a big thank you to UUNetBill for providing the example of how to do this, and for his excellent thread with cabin reviews!  Also, thank you to JPH814 on the Seabourn forum and to bissel for pointing out his thread.

Thank you, MadMarine and GOARMY.  I put in your info.


Just to clarify, I will only enter the excursion date separately if that refund was requested on a separate date.  The category is mainly for those who are taking a FCC, but expecting a cash/credit card refund of taxes and/or excursions.  My example may have been a bit misleading.

Piscean, thank you for participating.  Do you mean that Regent sent you the money in 11 days on March 2, or that on that date they agreed to eventually send you the money?  If it is only the date they confirmed your request, it is nice to know but I am not including it in the database.  Also, I hope you won't mind if I transpose your dates into the US format.  That is how the spreadsheet displays them.

Sail date: 4/16/20 - Splendor, NYC - Barcelona **sniff**

Cancelled by RSSC: 3/30/20

Talked with RSSC agent, prior to and immediately after they cancelled, asked for refund, not FCC. (I didn't fill out form.)

Checked back by email 5/8/20 - agent sez still in the works, "could be any day, but probably another 30". 

Remain on tenterhooks.
