Seven Seas Voyager Cruise Review by jakethesnake55: Another great ship in the Regent Fleet
Overall Member Rating
Another great ship in the Regent Fleet
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
I read many of the reviews about the Voyager over the past few months. However, I feel that everything about the ship was spot-on -- namely the food, service and cleanliness. We just got off the ship and it is headed to dry-dock for a complete overhaul for the next 13 days. The dry-dock rehab will take place in the Marseilles shipyard.
Much of the carpet, furniture and common areas could use the upgrades. When you have a ship with hundreds of people on and off each week, things wear out. The biggest issue in our room was the air-conditioning not being consistently cold which we like when sleeping. The satellite television got knocked out during the trip and the major news channels only worked part of the time.
The ship's restaurant's -- Signatures, Prime 7, Compass Rose and Sette Mari were all fine and we had no complaints. Service was exemplary throughout the ship and you get what you pay for. The concierge desk was always friendly. The Voyager Bar could have used a More second bartender most of the time instead of one.
The roving trio of singers was lackluster at best. They could leave and never be missed in my estimation. Less

Only a few minor points. We had full lounge chairs on the balcony on our 2008 Regent Navigator Cruise. That was not the case this time. The couch had frayed cushions from heavy use. The bed and bedding were perfect. The room lights put out lots of heat and LED lighting might be the way to go in the future for all Regent ships. It will be more economical and they put out much less heat.It is disappointing that we constantly had to request Kleenex and toilet paper. It would be nice if the ship would put extra boxes/rolls of each in the large cabinet space under the sink area. The marble bathroom was immaculate and everything else worked perfectly. We liked this room because it was mid-ship and equally distant to everything without hearing elevators.
Great Ports/Good Value, but MS...
$ 200 per person per night. No...
Not a Memorable Trip
The glamour has gone.
Overpromise and Underdeliver
Not What It Used To Be
