Ship Facts: Seven Seas Navigator Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Seven Seas Navigator Deck Plans
1st Regent Cruise
Good and Bad can best describe this cruise

A. Suite

1. Master Suite 1000 on Navigator -- high cost but poor value due to

forward location

2. Beautiful suite but not enjoyable when underway due to wave motion of

ship. Impossible to walk comfortably in cabin.

3. Balcony not useable at all when underway due to unobstructed high

winds. Furniture on balcony was strapped down. Used all balcony

furniture only one day, while at port.

4. Suggestion: construct wind barrier door, similar to dividers between

suites that can be opened when at port.

5. Butler,exceeded expectations. Room stewardess,was also exceptional.

6. Unable to schedule in-suite cocktail party due to wave motion of ship

(sometimes extreme motion). I realize that you can't control the seas

but this motion was constant when ship was underway, even in calm seas.

B. Food

1. Our first meal in Prime 7 was very good the 2nd visit to Prime 7 was

fair I ordered a porterhouse that was tough and had to be sent back and

replaced with a fillet that was good. Others in our party had well to

very good entrees.

2. Sette Mari was very good on our first visit but the meat entrees

selected on the second visit were very tough and lacked flavor.

3. Breakfasts were always excellent at La Veranda.

4. Meals at the Pool Grill were consistently very good as were the bar

drinks. Suggest they offer pizza.

5. Meals at Compass Rose were consistently good to very good.

6. From all reviews we received, the food was reported to be excellent.

However, we found only a few items to be outstanding as compared to

other cruise lines. Superb food was one of the reasons we selected


7. The matre de, Stephano Frattori, was truly excellent no matter where

or when we encountered him. We noted that he extended the same

superior service to all of his guests. He is a true asset to the

Regent family.

8. The Pool Grill bar staff was also truly excellent. They took the time

to learn exactly how their guests preferred their drinks.

9. In general, all restaurant staff were excellent.

C. Shore Excursions

1. On the whole, the shore excursions were very enjoyable.

2. There is a discrepancy between some of the requirements/limitations

on-line versus what is allowed when on the cruise.

3. We were greatly disappointed at an early departure at Turks and Cacos.

Our day was cut in half. Many other passengers also felt the same.

It appeared that the Navigator lost its dockage to the larger

Carnival and Princess Cruise lines. We understand tender limitations

but Regent should have known where these other cruise ships were

located and where they planned to dock. Other arrangements should

have been made for Regent passengers. This was not our problem!!

Instead, it was a half day of vacation lost.
