  1. I can book early because of status and still sometimes find that there is a port with all excursions "sold out". I have wait listed and gotten what I wanted , and also check back frequently as more are added. Have always been able to find a free excursion in each port.
  2. we had the yellow fever vaccine from a trip to Africa. Took the round trip Miami cruise last year and saw no mosquitos in the Amazon. Use some insect repellant if you're concerned and long sleeves and long pants and you'll be fine. It is not required.
  3. you can book extra specialty restaurants once on board It is very easy to do so and get several on a long cruise. If you don't need the air transportation they give you a credit so you pay less than someone who got "free" air. compass rose usually has a dish or two from the specialty restaurants and my understanding is you can get pretty much anything if you ask in advance. I have never been able to tell who is in a higher price suite by the treatment they get. Some long time travellers seem to know the staff and might get a little special treatment however. I like the shows and music in general but this is a personal thing. I know the question was directed at someone else but thought I could share my experiences.
  4. If it is more than one segment, even if not a grand voyage, you get one reservation per restaurant per segment. otherwise you book the extra dinner reservations on the ship when you get there.
  5. we are flying Tokyo to Ft Myers FL on Delta. That was our choice of airline and Regent was able to comply
  6. not static, just wish it was true for Platinum card as well
  7. sorry, that hint made no difference. We have Platinum card as well and there is no Regent Cruise benefit. Maybe not for that card.
  8. I was able to wait list from the excursions page on line
  9. It's an awfully expensive cruise to self insure the cancellation cost at a minimum. I know medical on the ship is covered but if you have to go to a hospital it can add up if your own medical insurance doesn't cover the cost
  10. the porters will take your bags and put them on the bins that go to the ship. I always watch until they are at least in the bins. The porters will also remind you that they should get tips. Only port I've experienced this at, even though we always tip them
  11. It is 124.50 each way per person to fly from nongateway airport, as RSW is. We can book from Atlanta and fly from RSW to Atlanta on our own, but not sure how much money we would save doing this. We are comfortable making the choice of which airport to fly to and from based on the situation and have not had to pay any additional fees to Regent for a specific flight. sometimes we book our own flights because the price is better or at least equal to the allowance. Every cruise is different. Last March we did a cruise nearly last minute and had to book our own flight because it was too late for Regent to do so.
  12. Sometimes we have an extra flight but sometimes not. When we went to Beijing the flight from Miami and Rsw both connected with the same flight from Detroit. Especially on the way home we would prefer a 2nd Connection rather than the 2 hour drive from Miami. If course there is an additional charge to fly from RSW as it's not a gateway for Regent
  13. I find much inconsistency in the hair dryers. Its like they went to Walmart and bought whatever stock was there. I have had different sizes, different wattage, and both US and european plugs with no rhyme or reason of which it would be. I understand that if you don't like the one you have you can request a replacement
  14. deviation is 175 each person. I don't mind the drive to Miami when going if there is a reason to do so but not the drive home so RSW works for us. We chose these flights and booked through Regent as they met our needs. We have found connections in the past that are the same from Miami or RSW, connect to the same flight, so why drive.
  15. can you afford to move to category E? It would be worth the slightly higher cost. The more forward you are the better, the vibrations in the back of the ship can get pretty strong at times. I wouldn't worry about the theater noise. We have loved being on deck 6 on Navigator. but more forward. It is the most convenient deck and lower in case of rough seas.
