Q – We have friends scheduled to sail with you to Scandinavia and Russia in June of next year. We are seriously thinking of joining you, as they may have mentioned. But, along with everyone else, I suppose we are thinking about whether or not the Regent Spendor will sail. Will that cruise likely operate. Any timetable of operations would be helpful:
A – We anticipate that our Signature Cruise will operate but it will take some time until we are totally comfortable with vaccine and Covid statistics coming out of St. Petersburg. At the present time, we cannot verify the level of progress being made in the fight against Covid in Russia. The Russians have, we know, been extremely active in selling their vaccine to other countries left out of the process to purchase large amounts of the new treatments from Pfizer or Moderna. Tourists will, it is certain, be visiting countries in Asia and South America, as well as portions of Africa, that have been vaccinating their citizens with vaccines developed in Russia.
