CARIBBEAN AND AMAZON ADVENTURE
Seven Seas Navigator
May 23-June 17, 2017
This cruise was Miami round-trip down the Amazon River to Manaus and back. It lasted 26 days and the ship was sold out months in advance. There were ten ...
Regent offered the best itinerary and time of the Amazon River...hence we booked it!
A careful evaluation on our return home leaves me with the following comments:
The best..."all-inclusive" means just that...you pay for ...
We have noticed a change in the amenities since Norwegian took them over. Not as much luxury and we saw some skimping.
The entertainment was repetitive - piano player ,guitar piano player, guitar. We stopped going to the shows.
This was my very first time cruising, so i didn't know what to expect. I am 49, and I took my 19 year old niece. Obviosly youngest on Regent. While we enjoyed dressing up for dinner a few times, we didn't like feeling obligated to. Well, ...
Our friends found a great deal for RSS 25th Anniversary cruise and so we jumped at the chance to join them and try our first luxury cruise (previously sailed with Celebrity, HAL and NCL). It started well with an upgrade to a balcony suite. ...
The itinerary allowing us to travel to Bermuda from Florida on the ship was our deciding factor to celebrate our 44th anniversary. We cruised on the Navigator for our 30th anniversary and did not want to miss out on this last trip to ...
I've just read a number of the reviews for this ship and can't quite believe that I was on the same ship as the other reviewers. We found the cruise, all 40 nights of it to be generally and overwhelmingly wonderful.
The itinerary was ...
Our travel agent recommended this line. We have traveled extensively...more than 140 countries....and cruised on many cruise lines. We booked because of the itinerary. I have to say it was a horrible experience. There were multiple ...
After two cruises on Seven Seas Navigator we are convinced that Regent are not so good as they think they are, and by no means offer 6 star luxury.
On the positive side, the cabins, the selection of drinks, especially wine, afternoon ...
The Navigator reminds me of an aging movie star - still very lovely, but showing her age in places and finding it very difficult to compete with some of the younger offerings despite extensive cosmetic refurbishment.
We were a group of ...
We were going to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and my wife's birthday. Also a bucket list item to africa. We were told and read that regent was the "gold standard" for cruise lines. The cost was over the top but decided ...
Starting with a chaotic transfer from hotel to ship, this cruise was destined to disappoint with nonexistent shore support following hospitalisation resulting from an allergic reaction to a ship-provided meal and cancelled ports of call (3 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
My wife and I have cruised on two other lines: Disney when with the grandkids and Crystal just for us. We were looking for a Med cruise this October and checked Crystal first but neither of their ships were in the area we wanted. So we ...
This cruise was chosen because of the 7 day itinerary and at this time of year the temperature would not be too hot. My wife is very asthmatic so the temperature was a very important feature for us.
The restaurant service and food were ...
My wife and I traveled with another couple on a 10 day Mediterranean cruise aboard the Navigator. The ship was just reburbished earlier this year and was well done. We chose this cruise line due to the high end caliber advertised by ...
We chose this cruise for Regents reputation for luxury, fine cuisine and included excursions
The luxury was lacking in many areas, poor dining service, indifferent desk staff, almost non existent daytime activities, and lack of decent ...
We were a party of 4 and had cruised on Azamara,Oceania and various other cruise lines.An opportunity presented itself to try Regent so this is our review.The package was booked through Regent with flights with BA from local airport which ...
We had sailed on the Regent Marina last year, flying to Rio de Janeiro. We decided to book this trip for the value (sale price) and also to travel with some friends who had not experienced some of the ports.
There are lots of positives ...
My wife and I have a preference for smaller ships and although experienced cruisers have yet to explore the 'luxury' market. The small ships are rapidly disappearing from the mainstream providers and so time for a change.
Our first ...
We are dedicated Crystal cruisers and include two full world cruises among the 80 we have enjoyed.
It was therefore something of a gamble when we cruised out of Barcelona on 16th August with RSSC Navigator. The main reason for this ...
We chose this cruise for its fabulous itinerary. It did not disappoint. All of the places visited were just fabulous.
Dining experiences were mostly excellent and the refurbishments particularly in Compass Rose are really lovely.
We have been fortunate to experience over 30 cruises but never with Regent. Our primary motivation for booking this cruise was to make a comparison with our favourite line Seabourn. This is our analysis for what it is worth.
