We had an H GTY, which meant we didn't get a cabin assignment until a few days before the cruise. We ended up in 829, which is an accessible cabin. I liked it, and would book it again. It was quite square in shape, and had no walk-in closet, which made it feel very roomy, roomier than the standard cabin I think, and still lots of storage space. Only downside is the bathroom shower--no enclosure to allow a wheelchair to wheel in, no cabins below the sink for the same reason--showers entailed laying out towels on the floor around the shower to prevent daily floods. They do need to replace the safes, but I believe they will be during the next refurb. Read entire member review >>
CABIN/SUITE: We are people who enjoy luxury cruise lines, but cannot afford or justify the most luxuriate cabin. Our low end Regent suite had 70-sq. feet on our cabin with Crystal, plus a balcony. The bathroom was bigger too, but the side of the bathtub/shower was dangerous, especially if the ship was rocking. The side of the tub was so high that us formerly active people with hip operations in our past had some issues.
Just like Crystal the furniture in the room sat low and was hard to get out of. The biggest difference was the flat screen TV on Regent was bigger and there were over 150 movies you could watch in your room, including many not yet released on DVD. In 10 days we watched three movies requiring me to remove them from our Netflix list when we returned.
The bed was fine with good night sleeps every night, despite having a lower priced suite. We managed to survive without a butler. Read entire member review >>
Cabin: Bigger than most out there, yet is the lowest category on Regent. Service as good as with a butler. Balcony: yes! and Private. Daily stocked bar. Run out of something? Just call and get a full sized bottle of what you wish. Walk in closet: yesMarble bathroom with either walk in shower or tub-shower combo. Bottom-line: great Read entire member review >>
Slightly smaller than was comfortable. Excellent bathroom (with bath) and full range of amenities. Serviced twice a day and all towels replaced (whether you hang them back up or not) a bit excessive we felt. A good closet for storage, but we needed more hangers. In cabin safety deposit box lettering had cracked so not easy to work out how to use it! Queen bed was very comfortable - lovely linen. The lock on the ranch slider to the verandah was broken so we could not lock it. The gaps in the planking on the verandah meant that the deck chairs sometimes wobbled! The cabin was not soundproof and we could hear snoring and talking from the cabins on either side! Read entire member review >>
Large bathroom with walk in shower, lots of room in the walk in closet, very comfortable bed and the heat/cool system was great. The veranda was quite roomy and enjoyable. Flat screen TV and DVD player. Refrigerator which was kept well stocked with our choice of beverages. Read entire member review >>
