WILL OUR SIGNATURE CRUISE TO SCANDINAVIA AND RUSSIA OPERATE THIS JUNE?

Q – We have friends scheduled to sail with you to Scandinavia and Russia in June of next year. 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. As far as Regent Seven Seas is concerned, and in terms of our internal planning and air arrangements, we are operating on the assumption that this cruise will operate aboard the new Splendor and that it will exceed all expectations.
