It used to be that tips were unknown, and yes, considered insulting in places. David will tell his story about the bartender at the Pearl in Manihi who insisted on buying us a drink because she was...

I don't think it would be the "facilities" that would slow you down, but the size of the ship, i.e., the number of pax and number of tenders.

Of course, I've only done this on the Paul Gauguin,...

Although I agree with Stan and Jim here, I must say that the cruise diet starts to pall after a couple of weeks, and if I did a long cruise I'd definitely be cutting back on what I eat, so that's...

I agree with all the critics of O on this one. They obviously dropped the ball and screwed up badly. Glad it got resolved, but they should have handled it much better. And I, for one, would have...

I don't think that's true. And as Stan said, the price for the Prestige package is $59.95, not for the standard package.

On Riviera, we had the prestige, and we drank what we wanted. I worked...

Perhaps you could get the beds separated into two singles? Or ask the steward(ess) to bring in a cot? Better than nothing.

Why not just take some segments and make it shorter, so that your budget can include excursions and a glass of wine? Not sure what you meant by "12x" anyways--did you mean 12 weeks, 120 days?

I believe in Portugal you can get a car outfitted with a toll transponder--not sure if this is a cost-effective way of dealing with the many toll roads, but it would certainly be more convenient.

Yeah, I know, but we don't live in a border city. And I really don't want my fingerprints taken. So that's the end of that, for us.

But it really doesn't make sense to do that unless you travel thru the US quite frequently. Even as snowbirds, we haven't bothered, just not worth it, plus I have no intention of being fingerprinted.

In a way I agree with you, but it must be said, that perhaps if there are enough complaints, Regent might change something. They certainly won't if no one complains.

We did fly straight through once because we decide 2 nights precruise in Tahiti would be better than one. Had a 6 hour layover and I can tell you that was far too long.
