  1. With all the bad news emails just wanted to say that I received my refund of deposit without using the credit card default for my cancelled Jan 2021 cruise. I am really sorry we cannot make it but with DH health issues, the 72 hours wait in Los Angeles, the inability to use private excursion vendors we decided to cancel. Over the years since 2003 we have done 13 cruises on PG and we have enjoyed every one of them. We are really sad we cannot make it especially as we just love the crew but unless our circumstances and the world changes we cannot consider this.
  2. Another choice would be to take Regent or Crystal when their ships sail in the region.
  3. Seeing all the protocols that FP and Ponant are putting into place I am just not willing to go on the PG anytime soon.
  4. Hi Claudia, While the PG does not require a mandatory Covid test that is because to enter French Polynesia you are required to have a test and certificate dated within 72 hours. My understanding from other FP travelers is to get the test and certificate completed within that time frame is quite impossible unless you visit the one paid test centre near LAX. In regards to Ponant financials they are owned by Groupe Artemis (holding company of Francois Henri Pinault). Some of other brands this group owns includes Gucci, Christie's auction house, Saint Laurent, Balenciaga to name a few. While our family is lovers of the PG and the experience in FP, we do not feel this is the way to cruise on them. Miriam
  5. Wendy, we are hoping to go January. But very nervous to fly for so many hours with a mask.
  6. We have booked 2023 WC and my DD will be on one of the segments. The easy cancellation terms were what attracted us.
  7. Thanks. Will check it out.
  8. Please tell me where? We live in Unionville.
  9. We got caught by the volcano in 2010. Was able to get a flight out....but others on our Regent cruise were stuck in a Verona for 10 days. Had to get local doctors to contacts their US doctors to get them prescriptions. Very cumbersome. Now we take complete details of all prescriptions. And at least 15 days extra meds on a two week cruise. Would plan to take substantial extras for the world cruise.
  10. They will store my excess in a locked fridge in the medical center.
  11. Was intending to but just couldn’t remember the email and thanks for the same.
  12. My insulin can be outside for 45 days but the world cruise is a lot longer than that. i store it at 5 degrees in my fridge at home taking a pen out when needed. Some cruise lines store it for you in the medical centre.
  13. Looking at a World Cruise on Crystal. What arrangements does Crystal make for Insulin storage? The fridge in the rooms is not optimum temperature. Thanks, M
  14. We tend to book as soon as itineraries come out. In fact this is likely the first time in years that we haven't booked 2023 and cancelled our already booked 2022 itineraries.
  15. Yes...they are unilaterally amending their contract or refusing to honour their contract. there is also Oceania and Regent who may or may not be solvent
