Regent has lost its appeal.: Seven Seas Voyager Cruise Review by Lockerley
Overall Member Rating
Regent has lost its appeal.
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
We had a similar experience on this ship last January when cruising from Sydney to Singapore and decided to give the ship one more chance choosing Regent over Seabourne which would have been cheaper. We have loved and raved about Regent since we started cruising but would be loathe to recommend it to anyone. We have commented many times on the poor entertainment. It is dated and boring. The dancers do not join in with the guests and party unlike on Seabourne where even the officers came down to the bar and almost the dance floor. The dancing on Regent is on too late and trying to get anyone moving to the Regent Signature orchestra is impossible. We rarely saw Paul the Cruise Director and if we did he was ineffectual and not up to the job. We were also dismayed on the day of disembarkation to be woken by the maid at 710am so she could collect the fruit! What an intrusion. We were not due out of the cabin until 8 am and might have wanted to take the fruit to the airport. I think she was looking for tips which made me feel very uncomfortable let alone the fact I was still in bed at the time!
We did our first Seabourne earlier this year and had a really great time with quality food and great dancing parties. We have booked Silversea for next year and also have a free Regent cruise on the Mariner as a result of horrendous problems on Voyager last January. We are very grateful to Regent for that but it will probably be the last time we cruise with them. Less
