Horrible experience. Staff is great. Management on ship on corporate is garbage.

Review for a Trans-Ocean Cruise on Norwegian Dawn

rcalnan
10+ Cruises • Age 40s

NCL Dawn Cruise from Istanbul to Dubai Nov 24 to Dec 13 The cruise changed a number of times. This was explained as a result of the conflict in Palestine. However, stops in Egypt were removed with others added. Sea days were also added. A credit of $200 for the stateroom was provided for the entire trip. No explanation of the compensation for the missed ports, additional sea days, and reduction ...

An amazing journey of ancient lands

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Norwegian Gem

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

This was our first trip on Norwegian Gem, but not first on NCL. We booked for the itinerary which originally included Turkey, Israel, Greece, Egypt, Sicily and Italy (Naples and Rome). Sadly, we were unable to visit Israel due to war with Hamas. We were pleased with the substitutions of Crete and Cyprus, having never visited either island before. Ship and crew: We've been on several ...

Glorified Repositioning Cruise at Passengers’ Expense

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Seven Seas Navigator

StelladiMare
6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

While there are many rusted on Regent Seven Seas (RSS) cruisers who’ll forgive any sin, beware if you don’t fall into that category. RSS is for you if you’re happy with average casino/club food masquerading as fine dining, stage troupe shows a high school would be embarrassed to put on, & a patronising juvenile approach to passenger announcements/liaison that’s more fit for a kindergarten than ...

Our Costly Repositioning Cruise to Dubai !

Review for a Trans-Ocean Cruise on Seven Seas Navigator

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Let me first state that the previous commenter did not exaggerate at all. As a matter of fact he was kind to give our cruise a two rating, but I stand by my one rating. We are Platinum member of the RSS Society, with many wonderful cruises and experiences with this cruise line. We are only 40 days away from Titanium level. And we have booked 3 future cruises with Regent. That said, we loved ...

Very disappointing

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on Seven Seas Voyager

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

After having a wonderful cruise on the Mariner in June we decided we wanted to book Regent again and what a complete difference between the 2 cruises Most of the staff was very miserable, hardly any staff ever smiled. Shore excursion desk the staff looked like don’t bother me and go away Wifi unacceptable Food compared to Mariner was terrible, i think the chef and food director were ...

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on Seven Seas Voyager

Mysticmerlin
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

First time Regent clients here and thoroughly disappointed. The Penthouse suite we stayed in was very nice, but also tired. The Butler service overhyped and unnecessary in our opinion - just canapés delivered daily and a mini bar also topped up daily - only it wasn’t and required reminders. The vast majority of their waiting staff and all of the housekeeping teams were fabulous. The reception ...

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Norwegian Gem

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Before I begin my review of this cruise, I want to say that we are Sapphire with NCL. That means that we have spent more than a few days cruising with NCL and have seen many changes over the past few years. We cruised 46-days with NCL in 2023 alone. Where to begin? We booked 2 cruises with NCL for November. The Gem from Istanbul to Athens then a Transatlantic on the Breakaway out of Rome ...

Review for a Africa Cruise on Seven Seas Explorer

brevetjudge
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We signed up for this cruise in 2020. We hoped by end of Oct. 2022 things with Covid would have settled down. Since this was to be our 6th Regent cruise, 2nd on Explorer, we believed the tours would be very good and safe. We believed we needed to be careful in many parts or the world now. Especially since we are in our seventies and walk a bit slower. We believed Regen would take good care of us ...

Review for a Trans-Ocean Cruise on Norwegian Star

mckcrampton
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

It is difficult to give an objective critique because my husband and I lucked out and spent 21 days in a gorgeous penthouse suite with butler and all the perks. (We usually stay in a regular balcony cabin). That being said, we were very impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of all of the crew and staff. We have taken more than ten cruises on many different cruise lines and I don't ...
