As it claims to be the world most luxurious cruise ship, I chose this cruise trip to celebrate my husband's 60th special birthday with my family, hoping it to be a memorable one but it turned out to be totally disappointing! Despite my previous arrangement with the cruise co about my husband's birthday before the trip and reminded them again on the first day we boarded the "Explorer" for the ...

We had heard of regent cruise thought we should check it out. The ship was in great shape having been recently remodeled. We had a large room, probably too large but it was nice We had a butler who was very attentive and met all of our needs. While we are not foodies per se the food was more than acceptable. The options for the food were extensive. We had canapés brought to our suite nightly. ...

Whilst the ship in general was really luxurious the time given to the shipyard to complete the fitting out showed in many areas:- Balcony door could not be opened from the outside on 3 occasions. Shower head was hanging loose from ceiling in cabin Painting on a wall in cabin 15mm on the slant, visible and noticeable. In the Meridian lounge part of the ceiling decorations fell to the ...

We had a great time on the Explorer! The most outstanding thing was the customer service in EVERY aspect! The employees are so personable and nice. Their work ethic is incredible! Our room (Concierge) was spacious and the bed was so comfortable. They came in to clean and make everything perfect twice a day. Anything we requested was immediately attended to. Room service in the middle of the ...

We sprung for the Grand Suite, which was very impressive upon first entering it. Then, as we turned the hot tub on, it would not turn off and set off alarms. We had to laugh as employees came rushing to our room as we all watched our luxurious suite flood! Next, we lost our ability to watch Satellite TV half way thru the cruise. This never got resolved. It was very disappointing, as we liked to ...

My spouse and I usually book with Celebrity in their Penthouse Suite. In 2016, our May 2017 Celebrity Equinox Film cruise was cancelled and the Celebrity Equinox was repositioned to the Caribbeans. We wanted a Mediterranean cruise with embarkation and disembarkation in Barcelona because in May 2016, we took the Celebrity Equinox Film cruise in the penthouse suite with a pre-cruise stay at the ...

Boat was excellent But TV went out 4 days ago and they do not know how to fix They are cavalier about it--as if saying I am sorry is enough Considering air, we are paying $2500 per day to be in a Penthouse Suite, that is NOT ok To not give us any monetary accommodation is ridiculous Gaeta--was not a good port--nothing there and tours were not good. Pacific Rim restaurant is ...

We had been on a Regent cruise four years ago that we really enjoyed. We really wanted to check out the newest ship, Explorer, so we booked a Mediterranean cruise starting in Barcelona and ending in Venice. I initially wanted to get a penthouse suite but they were all booked. We ended up with a superior suite, which is one step above their lowest category of deluxe verandah. This is an ...

Booked this cruise with our travel agent on its inaugural Barcelona to Venice Regent 25th anniversary cruise in April, as we both had birthdays that month. The ship was great, our room was great, the staff was great except for restaurant management. My travel companion is gluten intolerant which was noted when we booked but through the lack of knowledge and incompetence of restaurant management, ...

We recently sailed on the 10-night Barcelona to Venice trip aboard Explorer. It was our seventh Regent cruise but our first on the Explorer. We brought my mother and her husband and it was their first cruise ever. Bottom line up front - I think we have a new favorite ship! The good: This ship is, in my opinion, absolutely stunning. I know people have complained about the dark colors and ...
