Travel Woes

Sail Date: June 2013
Destination: Mediterranean
Embarkation: Venice

Our difficulties began when our flight to Venice had been cancelled. Regent refused to assist with rescheduling the flight even though they had arranged the flights to begin with. We missed the first day in Venice due to the much delayed flight.

When we finally arrived at the Ship, our first reaction was, where is all of that cigarette smoke coming from (we soon realized that it was from the crew's smoking areas). Food was OK but didn't live up to our expectations.

The fellow passengers that we met were lovely and were from all over the globe.

The cruise music and entertainment was very subdued- a little too much big band music for a couple in the 40's-50's age range but hey, I would rather it be that way than too much in the other direction.

They make a great deal out of the specialty dining but again, seems way overblown to me based on the experience that we had with service and food quality-again, nothing horrible but far short of other dining More experiences that we have had.

Upon arriving at the airport in Athens, we were told that our return flight had been cancelled--again, Regent had handled the flights as part of their package--you can imagine our shock to find out that we didn't have tickets on a sold-out flight --UGH -I would be hard-pressed to consider Regent again.
