Jim, I like your confidence. New Year's segment is waitlisted; Christmas segment still has room including the Regent Suite. I figure when Explorer gets cancelled we might get some moving to join us on that first segment.

Jim, I am confident that our cruise will sail; I was referring to the Explorer in Australia and New Zealand.

We decided to make airline reservations today; flying in and out of Ft Lauderdale instead of Miami. I am sure hoping this sails from Miami.

Glad to hear that Marc. I find it hard to believe that Florida & CDC can't figure something out by the time we cruise.
Just ridiculous how common sense fails sometimes.

If Florida still won't let companies require vaccination, maybe we'll be sailing out of Nassau instead.

Hopefully Freeport instead; can take the ferry from Fort Lauderdale.

Think positive?!?! Did you read text of NCLH suit against State of Florida? Everyone else has found a reasonable workaround but Del Rio is so hard headed that he wants to win in court. He has already sold his expensive Miami house so he is ready to move NCLH headquarters out of Florida; he is as stubborn as Elon Musk.

I was 99% certain our cruise would proceed as planned; now I am down to around 85%.

Marc, I think the cruise will happen, but I haven't made flight plans in case we sail from another port. I'm in no matter where we embark. Just hope it isn't New York.

Winter Park to Miami isn't really a flight. wonder

Regent left 36 hours after the end of their transatlantic on both Splendor and Explorer before leaving on their first cruise from Florida. That allows them around 24-30 hours to transit to a different embarkation port if needed. Only real choices are Bahamas, Charleston, or Havana. I don't think they can make San Juan, Mobile, or New Orleans in that time.

I agree our cruise will happen; I just wish del rio would fall n line with his competitors. Arnold Donald was a classmate of mine in grad school and I have always respected Richard Fain; both of them seem to be getting back to cruising.

Marc, do you have a link to the filed documents? I did a quick search and couldn't find them. Obviously I'm using the the wrong plaintiff's-Defendants for the search.

Lots of space on first segment 17-27 December including twenty F2 cabins. Cruising over Christmas is a lot of fun on Regent, this will be our fourth Christmas cruise and third of last five years.

Too many grand babies now to do that, plus December is traditionally my most busy month of the year. As a surgeon, I eat what I kill so to speak, so can’t take off when demand is high.

"As a surgeon, I eat what I kill so to speak,"

That is the funniest post I have seen since the one where a lady posted "They must have sold tickets for the cruise in a trailer park in Fresno". Rachel, I would be honored to sail with you anytime.
