  1. DeedeeG, FWIW, I appreciated your post and your suggestions! Bob
  2. So so many memories, one of my favorites was visiting Kotor, Voyager June 2018. Sailing into Kotor Our excursion was "Highlights of Montenegro". It started with a drive up a long winding road up a mountain with hairpin turns, 25 to be exact.😧 with beautiful vistas along the way, to a lookout point with great views of the bay. Timing is everything, literally within minutes of our arrival, the entire bay was engulfed in fog. Next we were brought to a delightful little village called Certenje. Back to Kotor for a walking tour. And then the sail away Need to get back to cruising!!!!!!!!!!

  4. This answers my question as to why anyone would want to use the android app rather than the mobile site. It is true, trying to upload pics from ship WiFi can be maddening! If they upload easier by using the app, going through all of the difficulties may be worth the trouble. Like you, I am eagerly anticipating the opportunity to test it out, let's hope that it is sooner rather than later!
  5. It is different for android, mixing text with pictures is a very cumbersome process for android. After inserting your first pictur e, you get this- Tap the thumbnail, and you get this box- Choose "Insert Inline". When you do, you get this gobbeldygook of BBCode- You can now type in more text, but you must make sure that your cursor is past the [/IMG], or else your pic will not appear. Now you can add another picture- Tap the new thumbnail, and add more text as above. Are we having fun yet? I can't imagine why anyone would want to do this rather than use the mobile site which is a breeze to use. (I am referring only to the android version of the app, I think that the ios version is much easier to use.) If anyone knows of an easier way of doing this with android, please tell. Bob

  7. I checked the CC Guidelines in regard to Facebook links, and do not see anything that indicates that it isn't allowed. I think this is the link https://www.facebook.com/franck.galzy/videos/10153682434261423
  8. While not specific to luxury cruising, here is an interesting article by a cruise ship travel writer. I am not agreeing or disagreeing with any of his points, only providing for interest. 9 ways cruising will be different when it starts up again  Gene Sloan
  9. I am proud to say that I got 100% on the quiz!!!😆
  10. drib, I knew that I could count on you for a most scholarly elucidation.
  11. Did you get any further clarification? This is what Regent's statement says: “Regent Seven Seas Cruises recognizes how diligently Travel Partners have been working during this crisis and how challenging the last two months have been for everyone. That is why we are protecting 100 per cent of Travel Partner commissions on any voyage we voluntarily suspended as well as protecting 100 per cent of their commissions for any cancellations under Regent Reassurance. It will also protect commissions on the 100 per cent future cruise credits when agents re-book their clients through the end of 2022. This includes those made for bookings cancelled by the temporary suspension of operations or for those earned under Regent Reassurance." Were you told that this statement is not true? In what way? In my case, I received FCC which I applied to a new booking for next year. My invoice did not indicate any rebate for that cruise. So if my agency did, in fact, have their commission protected, I am having a hard time understanding the justification of my returning my rebate. (I have written to their accounting dept for clarification 2 weeks ago, and have not heard back.)
  12. I also get my rebate with my cruise documents. On April 5, I received an email from the accounting department of my agency, asking me to send back the rebate for my cancelled cruise. I replied to them quoting the information that Anchorbouy mentioned above, and asking that in light of this information, they would provide me with a rationale for my returning this money. I have not yet heard from them. I should note that this agency has a very good reputation, I would be happy to refund this money if it was causing them a financial loss. But as far as I am concerned, the ball is in their court, and I have no intention in refunding anything until their request is justified.
