Two port cancellations, horrible tours, and poor on-board service: not Regent’s usual excellence

Review for Seven Seas Voyager to Africa

We chose this cruise because of the destinations, principally destinations on the west coast of Africa that are otherwise difficult to visit. Most of the passengers appear to be very well travelled, and those to whom we spoke talked of choosing this cruise because of the destinations, including the Cape Verde Islands, Senegal, The Gambia, Côte d’Ivoire, Togo, São Tomé, and ...

Great adventure with a perfect post-cruise double safari

We took this cruise for two reasons, we needed to spend cruise credits that Regent would not extend beyond 12/31 and there was a post-cruise safari at the end. We were not disappointed. In fact, for my husband, it was the trip of a lifetime. Seven Seas Voyager is a luxury ship and Regent is doing well in getting things back on track post-COVID. The ship is older, so in some ways not as nice as ...

NOT WHAT I EXPECTED

I was told that Regent was the top of the line. I have been on 5 Silver Seas and expected the same or better from Regent. I was very disappointed. The room was a penthouse and was much smaller than on other cruise lines for the price I paid. It was poorly set up.. The service was not up to 5 or even 4 star quality. I had to keep asking for water or wine. One woman at my table had to ask 3 ...

I have sailed on 10 plus different lines including Crystal, Azamara, Silver Seas and Seabourn. I really expected Regent to be even better. Instead, it was significantly less good. The service was wanting. Our cabin steward kept failing to stock our refrigerator with requested soft drinks and failed to put the cushions on our deck chairs. At dinner in the main dining room, it sometimes took an ...

We booked this cruise in April 2019 to travel in August 2020. It was cancelled because of Covid and we rebooked for July 2021 however this was cancelled as well but we were offered a booking for 7th August at short notice. We accepted this gladly as we were ready for a holiday. We booked a Panorama Balcony Suite on the Horizon Deck and I knew it would be lovely as we have been on three other ...

We chose this cruise for its itinerary having sailed from Dubai to Cape Town via East Africa with Regent three years ago (a cruise which rated as one of the best we have ever done). A bonus was a chance to sail on the Explorer. We chose the pre-cruise experience on offer in Lisbon as the post cruise with a Safari meant coming home on Christmas Day! Pre-Cruise - Lapa Palace - good hotel but ...

We originally travelled on the ship nine years ago when it was owned by Seabourn. We decided to revisit the ship for sentimental reasons. The ship is now run by Windstar. All I can say to anyone who is thinking of doing the same not to do so as you will be very disappointed. The experience was a million miles away from the experience we previously had. It was like everything that made the ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We love the size of this ship. The cabins are a very nice size, the dining in Compass Rose is very good. the wait staff there is wonderful. We do not like the specialty restaurants because the portion sizes are too large. The tours can be a bit harsh but the ports visited did not have any luxury buses to offer. Most tours were doable. This is a port issue not the ship problem. The ...

The Navigator Crew Go Way Out Of Their Way To Accommodate The Passengers,

We have traveled extensively on Silversea and Regent. This was our 6th cruise on the Navigator after cruising on the Voyager for 7 cruises. I have waited a couple of months before writing this review... and wanted to read some of the other current reviews. I have observed that some passengers are just plain rude. They complain all day and nothing a crew member can do is good enough. They ...

We chose the cruise from Lisbon to Cape Town for the itinerary & because we wanted to try a supposed 6* cruise. Having stayed at some fabulous hotels we were hoping for similar standards on board. The transfer/embarkation was poorly handled. We couldn't visit Madeira but just 2 coaches were offered for an alternative day out from Lisbon The ship has had a facelift but the bedrooms are ...
