  1. Hello Jackie, Hope you're home or close to it! Thank you for taking us along!
  2. I've found fairly easy to get additional reservations in the Specialty restaurants, but you have to be flexible about the hour ( usually later). No, Ive never felt its a "class system", but frankly i wouldn't begrudge people in the big suites getting preferential tables. In the end, if you dont have the budget for it, it doesnt matter why we think its great. If you have the budget, but seems like an "extravaganza", I suggest you sharpen your pencil, and do an apples to apples comparison with the other lines, IE. all inclusive alcohol, cabin size,excursions, airfare, and then see if it makes sense for you. I just know I could never go back to Princess or Royal Caribbean, sorry!
  3. Marc, I also had a conversation about it a couple of weeks ago with CD Jamie, and he explained the same advantages, plus that it was definitively "evolving to version 2.0". Dont know when you did it, but I was able to complete it on my iPad.
  4. Great for her, hope I'm able to do anything close to that next time I'm on Explorer. I may be in the minority, but I find the venue of Compass Rose there a bit like a convention hall. Just cruised on the Navigator and it was so nice to go to a more cozy Compass Rose.
  5. Jackie, I "discovered" during our last cruise (when it was time to fill the online questionnaire) that your society number is printed in your key card! Not sure if its always been there! Oh, that's too bad about all those ships in San Juan, that's unusual! Yes, OSJ will be a zoo, although "fun" to people watch! Hope you're able to find el Batey or Marilyns. Another nice place for a drink and a bite to eat is the Princesa Gastrobar, also very near the port (this one is not a "dive", but its casual). https://www.princesapr.com/
  6. LOL!!! I would have taken you up on it in a heartbeat as well! I'll be there in 10 days, too bad we won't coincide! Wishing you calm seas and that your glasses and any other assistance works. Was Pacific Rim tonight or tomorrow? I had the Sea Bass on Compass Rose but I think the Cod on Pacific Rim is better!
  7. LOL, that tip about the Cuba Libre is great! Another dive recommendation is Marilyn's ( Calle San Francisco 100) for their great mojitos!
  8. Are you by any chance Frequent Flyer member of AA and/or United and have their credit cards? If so, when flying Coach you get a free check in bag per person.
  9. In our NYC to Miami Navigator cruise a few weeks ago we had horrible weather during our two days in Bermuda, wish they had deviated and gone some place else! Hope you enjoy PR, Old San Juan should be very festive these days , in preparation for Christmas.
  10. Hello, Happy Thanksgiving! As you know, if you cancel a cruise before the penalty period, Regent will assess a $100 PP and will retain that from your deposit refund. I know this can be applied to a new cruise if you book within a year. My question is, if you do that, and then eventually cancel the new cruise, can you still rollover the $100 PP to another cruise? In other words, can this cycle be continued "in perpetuity", or its only a once off? Thanks!
  11. No, you didnt imagine it. Just last week, on my Navigator Caribbean cruise, on a number of ports ,we had to show key card PLUS ID to be let into the port's area. Then of course key card once again when we board the ship. I have no problem with this, but would have a problem if every guest decides to invite a guest(s) on embarkation day ( or any other day). I didnt know of this practice and frankly, I'm not in favor of it. Its hectic enough on La Veranda on embarkation day even without multiple "guests".
  12. Oh, ok, I was thinking that people would pick and chose excursions they wanted to keep, and get a credit for the ones they're not interested in . They way you've laid it out I agree shouldnt be that difficult, but still more work than what they do now. Keep trying, I would love this system!
  13. Jackie, glad you had a great time again on that excursion, it was certainly a highlight, would certainly have loved to be there as well, thanks! And I would love for Regent to give consideration to your idea of giving pax credit for excursions not taken. Like you, many times we just do our own thing on ports we've visited before. However, I can imagine it being a horrendous bookkeeping chore and can't see it happening. Have a great day tomorrow ( already today for you!)
  14. Hi Jackie! I'm wondering if that Funchal excursion , " Madeira Culinary Immersion..." was the one we were on with you and Dennis back on Explorer Inaugural season in 2016? If so, we loved it as well! I cant recall if it was Free or included. Enjoy your cruise, thanks for bringing us along!
