"Our cruise stopped at a port daily with one exception: Crotone in Italy was cancelled due to high winds, so we spent a day at sea.After reading some rather negative reviews, we were very pleasantly surprised by the service, food, décor – in short, pretty much everything – on our week-long Mediterranean cruise on the Regent Explorer...."Read More

New Zealand passed requirements for cleaning ship’s hull’s to prevent invasive species from entering their territorial water’s in 2018. We are currently on the RSSC Explorer for a 2 week cruise from Auckland to Sydney. The sailing just before us was to start in Sydney and was to end in Auckland. That sailing was denied entry into New Zealand waters due to RSSC Explorer hull ...

This was our first cruise on RSSC Explorer and we were hoping it would live up to it's 6 star rating. Unfortunately it did not. However, we did enjoy the ship, the food and the entertainment ( leaving aside the comedian). We booked the 3 day pre cruise in Singapore and I for one enjoyed myself not having been to Singapore in 20 years, so much has changed and so much more to see. Marina Bay ...

The Viking ad is correct. What there is not enough of is time. We booked the extended Regent cruise from Singapore to Auckland. Australia had several stops. Most of which were kept. New Zealand in 2018 passes a requirement for all ships entering their waters to have their hulls cleaned prior to doing so. Yet Regent never could arrange for it. Upon being noticed that the Seven Seas was barred ...

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 ...

After reading some rather negative reviews, we were very pleasantly surprised by the service, food, décor – in short, pretty much everything – on our week-long Mediterranean cruise on the Regent Explorer. This was our third Regent cruise, and probably my 15th cruise overall. Our positive experience began with embarkation. After a short bus ride from the pre-cruise hotel, we moved quickly ...

Unfortunately, The Regent Experience was not even close to what we were expecting. 1-. The staff is great and friendly, but there is no leadership and lack of training. That results in very poor service and sometimes no service at all, a lot of confusion and frustration. To be able to get a drink or a soda, was at times imposible. 2-. The quality of the food is average at best, I would ...

Vibration could have been a problem had we not been moved

On our first evening in suite 844 the vibration was dreadful. The entire bathroom vibrated, as did the bedroom. Worst of all was the bed vibrating. Our entire bodies shook. It was distressing and made us both feel almost sick. First thing in the morning my husband reported the matter, but somehow it was not seen as a complaint! After three visits to reception, we eventually got a member of ...

Not worth the extra expense

We booked this cruise for the itinerary, and because the dates fit. Regent is more expensive than our usual cruise, but we wanted to see if it was worth the money; it was not, which is why the cruise only received 3 stars. We had booked a 14 day cruise. Three months before the sailing date, Regent sent us a notice that the cruise itinerary was being dramatically changed, dropping many cities ...

We chose Regent for its all-inclusive, high crew to passenger ratio, itinerary choices, and superb service. The food quality and presentation compares to being served in a Michelin stared restaurant every evening. The accommodations are over-the-top luxury, and having laundry and pressing everyday included is such a treat. We hosted a cocktail party in our suite one evening before dinner. Our ...

Even though we had not been on the ship in three years due to the pandemic, very little had changed. Some of our favorite maitre'd's and servers had moved on to the Splendor as promotions or at their request. Service is still spectacular. Not a cruise for singles. It is an older crowd and most folks are married or coupled. Guests from across the globe made this an interesting experience. ...
