We just got home after an incredible 10 days in the Caribbean. We really enjoy the port intensive experience, with 7 of the 10 days in port. The downside is that the sea days are perfect also and we would have savored more time enjoying those wonderful sea days. The service and crew were incredible. The hostesses in all the venues, the waitstaff without exception and the bar servers were so good that it's ridiculous. The servers at the pool were always there to get you anything you could think of. Wine glasses in the restaurants were always topped off. The meals were served elegantly, no rushing, no running, no tossing silverware on the table between courses. If you need to eat in 30 minutes, this is not the ship for you. If you like to dine, enjoy your tablemates or your spouse, you will have a lovely meal with plenty of time at the end to dance, get to the show and get a seat with no problem or do whatever moves you. On the few occasions where we wanted a table for two and none were available, we simply walked a few yards to a lovely bar, enjoyed a perfectly constructed cocktail and when our table was ready an elegantly dressed host or hostess approached us, greeted us by name and escorted us to our table. Perfect in every way. By the way, the food was very good to outstanding. We never had anything that was just OK. The suite was well maintained, kept spotless by our steward and his assistant. They kept the mini bar stocked and fresh fruit was always on hand. By way of full disclosure, when we checked into our cabin on our last trip on the Mariner one of the vents sounded like a jet engine, very unpleasant. When the steward stopped by to introduce himself I pointed out the noise and asked him to try to handle it. We went to lunch, took a walk around the pool and had a beer. When we got back the problem was resolved. Just that quick. The public spaces were always clean and the restrooms always looked like someone had just refreshed them. The excursions were above average in my experience and the logistics were handled very well. Given the small passenger count we expected this to be the case and were not disappointed. The entertainment was excellent. The sets and costumes were simple, not as extravagant as say Princess, but the singers and dancers were the best we've seen on any size ship. With some major cruise lines (ie. HAL) cutting back hard on production type shows its incredible to see this kind of talent and staging on such a small ship. The orchestra did double duty most nights and followed or preceeded the shows with a dance or genre set. The also had a great, energetic and talented duo on board that played every night, did requests and kept us dancing. One topic that's harder to quantify is the quality of the passengers themselves. We met so many wonderful people on this cruise. Days spent with people on excursions or on the ship that were having a great time and not spending every minute trying to find fault was a delightful change of pace for us after traveling other brands. It was great leaving the cabin in the evening and seeing everyone comply with the simple elegant casual rule. Everyone looked great and dining was so much nicer. I wish some of the premium lines would compel passengers to adhere to the stated rules. If you need to wear cutoffs, ball caps, t shirts, etc. at night that's absolutely OK. Choose a ship that allows or encourages it. To my fellow travelers and reviewers that had problems on with their cabin, food or service I can only say that you had some very bad luck because we've been on the Mariner twice and they exceeded every expectation.

We have been on over 20 cruises on various lines. We took this because it was the next level up and we wanted to compare it to Oceania. One passenger describe it best when he said about the crew, they are very friending and smile but the just don't understand what you are asking for. Alcohol is included in the price but if you don't drink, the staff does not know what to do with you. I never had a meal where I did not have to ask (seriously) at least 3 times per meal to have my water glass refilled. Everyday either first hand or watching others, orders (both drink and meal) were wrong or delivered to the wrong table. At least 3 times my order was delivered to someone else and I would not have gotten my order if I did not see this. In the dinning room we noticed that about 70% of the activity was around serving boos and not food. The meals were top notch. The everyday menu was excellent as a back-up if you did not like the daily choices. Chartreuse, the French restaurant was poor at best. Everyone we spoke to was very disappointed. One person was trying to be polite and when I said "it sucked", he said, "well.... yeah". The rooms were very roomy, that cabin crew nice but not as quick as we would expect. If we were gone for 2 or more hours in the morning, we did expect our room to be made up when we came back which did not happen about 1/3 of the time. Shore excursions are included in the price but you need to know that you have to book them within the first 5 minutes of them opening if you want to get a popular one. The excursions themselves were okay but because our itinerary was changed from Cuba to the Caribbean, I can understand that they were not excellent. The programs were some games and only had 2 enrichment seminars per day while at sea. For this group, more of that would have been appropriate. We are active people and there was not much to learn about of be active while at sea. Read Less

Regent sells this cruise as luxury, which is deceptive. Most of their ships are old which in this case is the Mariner, which is in disrepair [the Navigator which I sailed on is worse the ac could not be fixed and staterooms in aft bounced from the engine room.] The stateroom was not ready for use. The ac temperature was 74 and there was slow airflow. After four calls throughout the day and being ignored I threatened to call the General Manager and two men showed up to fix it. The shower had low pressure and a new shower head had to be replaced. Basically, I am restoring the stateroom for the cruise line. The bathtub was very high and narrow. Although we were there was no accident because we were careful and physically in good shape, I’m sure there are many accidents. I do not know how in good faith Regent can allow this dangerous situation to continue. The ship’s waste-processing system leaked toxic gas into my stateroom, throughout the ship and even along dockside at different times. Try breathing this all weak with no fix. The toilet stopped working because the entire line had to be repaired. The quality of the food was on the cheap end. For example, I ordered a rib eye, which I could make shoes out of which were not even supermarket quality. The fruit was not ripe, lower end quality, as you know fruit is rated. The service is slow and disorganized because Regent hire third world labor whose forte is not serving. The dining room manager was obnoxious. The dining attire stated nothing about sandals. However, He singles me out in a non-discrete manner in the middle of the dining room for all to hear “ sandals are not allowed!” I pointed to male guest already seated with sandals and asked what do you have to say to him….His response was no response. I asked him about the woman wearing sandals and he ignorantly responded, “this not discrimination!” Keep in mind he didn’t read stated rules on the menu, which I have already mentioned. Now we get to the pool deck. Although drinks are included there were no waiters on deck 12. There were three waiters on deck 11 by the pool. I spoke to the Beverage Manager who does not do his job and supervise and informed him. I sure the reader will not be surprised that the next day there were no waiters on deck 12 serving drinks and to make matters worse the pool deck manager allowed every towel area to run out of towels. I know this because I had to check every area looking for towels instead of relaxing. When I found him his explanation was, “there’s wind I can't put them out!” He could not explain why he did not put the towels in the boxes with lids [another incompetent.] It should be noted the main incompetent is the General Manager who hides in the back, is never visible, does speak to passengers passing by to get feedback. The buck ends with the CEO. The pyramid crumbles from the top and that’s who’s responsible for their brand. This cruise line is an overpriced, high-end rip-off. Just about any mid priced cruise line can do way better than this. Save your money or find a real luxury cruise line if it exists. Read Less
