An Exciting Adventure

Sail Date: November 2013
Destination: South America
Embarkation: Miami

We chose this trip because the itinerary was very unusual. It started in Miami, continued to the Caribbean, sailed on to the Amazon River in Brazil and then back through the Caribbean and ended in Miami.

The Navigator is a small intimate ship where it's easy to make friends. The guests were mainly in their 60s.

The ports were fascinating and the shore excursions that were included in the fare were of high quality. We were looking for strenuous exercise and on this itinerary it was possible.

The entertainment was just as excellent as any show in Las Vegas but the dance band was really disappointing. My husband and I like to dance every evening and the band, maybe because of boredom, preferred to play jazz or Latin American music instead of appropriate dance music.

Our cabin was the largest one we have ever had. We loved the walk-in closet and the large efficient washroom. The balcony was a waste because it was too hot, too cold or too windy to spend More a lot of time outside. We were kept busy during the sea days with bridge lessons, lectures and cooking classes. The free internet was a real perk. However the free alcohol was lost on us. Don't take a cabin in the rear of the boat because it's very bumpy because of the engine.

The Reception learned our names quickly and we were impressed with how quickly any concerns were handled. The Cruise Director also catered to every request.

Our biggest disappointment was the quality of the food and the service in every dining room except Prime Seven. We had expected excellent cuisine and service but it didn't happen. Sometimes it was difficult to get a cup of coffee, or have the dishes removed before the next course.

We had a wonderful experience but the trip was too long and we would not go on another Regent cruise because of the lack of quality in the food and service. Less
