  1. A jacket/tie is never required and if you want to eat by the pool in the new dining option you don't even have to wear long pants or a collared shirt.
  2. Just remember, if they are my friends they are probably not too good at following rules either...
  3. I spoke to a friend on Splendor yesterday and the bar was open and they were sitting at it...
  4. Absolutely! And I finds it interesting to compare our guesses to the actual actions by Regent - it provides a lot of insight into their decision making process.
  5. They do not release that info to TA's either...don't feel bad.
  6. I read it as getting tested 72 hours before your first flight (suggested) and mandatory testing at the port....but as I have posted many times, I would email Regent and carry their written reply with you. Or just get tested along the way...it is much cheaper than borking your cruise.
  7. Regent has you tested on board. If you stay for additional post-cruise vacation you are on your own.
  8. You are REQUIRED to be tested immediately before boarding. You are suggested to be tested 72 hours before your trip...to establish baseline of not being sick before your trip begins.
  9. I will give my standard advice for important issues. Email Regent directly and keep the written reply with you.
  10. It is 72 hours prior to leaving on your trip....personally, I will base it off the time the first flight leaves. They want to know you are NOT sick before leaving on your trip.
  11. https://www.rssc.com/voyage-health This will show restrictions by voyage AND by port - it is a wonderful tool that Regent has provided and should be very helpful.
  12. A lot to read but based on your SSS level, you get certain things in your cabin. Based on your cabin level you may also qualify. When you are upgraded, you typically just get the room, not the extras. Exception would be PH and a butler. The Regent ground people are not Regent employees, they are subcontractors and they are not allowed to put people on the bus unless pre-authorized. I think they should have let you on but that is a discussion to have with Corporate about a policy change.
  13. If you loaded your own fridge with bottled water, that would explain it. They won't take out anything you put in it. And yes, they are exceptional...their jobs depend on it.
  14. If you test positive at the pier nothing else matters. You will be retested and if you test positive a second time you will not be allowed to board.
  15. They actually have to inventory the fridge for internal reasons. I find this oversight to be amazing...something is missing here as they check the fridge twice a day to restock it. My best guess is the previous guest wanted it emptied and the paperwork got confused...possibly combined with a stewardess change. I can't imagine what else it would be.
  16. A better analogy is like calling the CPA's office (Regent) to get a list of what is required in order to have them do your taxes (go on a cruise) and having different CPA's give you different answers.
  17. I am going to toss in a side thought that I have offered in the past. Some passengers eat with the staff by choice, by invite, by nights on board, by friendship...for many reasons. While I do not speak for anyone but myself, I will share that I would not sit down for a meal in a public setting on board with a staff member unless I was dressed on parity with that staff member. I am not trying to change your mind on the subject...but some people may not have thought of the possibility.
  18. I've had 4 or 5 Splendor trips cancelled so I can't tell you much. I do know that the smallest room only has a Queen bed and does not have a walk-in closest so that would be a deal-breaker for us. I wish I could help more but I simply haven't seen it yet.
  19. 20 KTS is top speed for the Voyager (not counting any currents) - she is not very fuel efficient at that speed and fuel consumption is a metric by which Captains are judged. I hope it wasn't a medical emergency that necessitated that WOT situation. This assumes the early stages of a cruise before all the passengers gain 20 kilos....
