renovations needed : Seven Seas Mariner Cruise Review by janesusan
Overall Member Rating
Destination: South America
Embarkation: Rio de Janeiro
The tours and ports of call were on the most part not great but better then not going ashore. Most port were not recommended to go off on your own and that was good advise. LOTS of very POOR people and horrible poverty beyond anything you have ever More seen, very disturbing. The Rich are very rich but the hills team with stacked cubes of living space with no windows or doors and hordes of families living like the discarded. I thought the port were beautiful from afar but up close filthy.
The ship knew our flight home has been cancel and did not tell us we were not getting out of Rio on American Airlines due to ice in Dallas. The Oceana passenger has been informed that morning BUT we were dumped at the airport with NO HELP to get flights out of South America, It was crazy with hundreds of stranded passengers crushed into the airport and left to find their way home without any assistance from Regent at all. Delays out were estimated at 2-3 days. my husband and I got lucky and brave and found a supervisor to help find us a plane out that night to another city in the states (we didn't care what city ) because going back to Rio and finding a hotel and being told how unsafe it was to be in Rio by ourselves was NOT and OPTION.

Cabin review: A851 Penthouse Suite
the room was much larger than Oceana by a lot the bed was fabulous and the bathroom was spacious and modern. large walk in closet and very comfortable sofa with captains chair. great vanity for me and lots of drawers ...I bring lots of options to wear. safe was too small! wall cabinet was a nice feature and the flat screen was nice to have. the veranda was fine and the chairs were fine as well. the cabin stewards were fabulous and I loved having fresh fruit in our room for afternoon snacks.Read All Penthouse Suite (A) Reviews >>
