This was our first Regent cruise and, in fact, although we've generally done larger suites on RcCL and Celebrity, this was our first truly "upscale" cruise. The others were great fun but much more of a mixed crowd. The CruiselineA and passengers are quite as described except that we were pleasantly surprised to find it was more mixed in terms of age - not many under 35 but more than we expected in our 40-50 age group. The ambien was not stuffy at all (or else our group of 10 simply ignored an attempted snobbiness described in some of the reviews). We had fun and were often fairly loud about it ( always appropriately of course!). I don't recall ever feeling looked down upon by frequent cruisers which seemed to be the case based on a number of reviews posted. We loved the variety of restaurants on board. The elegant casual dress code was nice ( our men would have preferred to have a sports bar for the occasional visit to catch up with their bloody fantasy football and baseball scores but we were grateful for it!).

The only ral complaint (and boy, I really had to think hard!) was that (1) they aren't able to easily accommodate parties of 10 with some fuss and (2) there really ought to be some music around the pool. A few in our group complained about the terrible and high priced Internet access but I think that just us being spoilt. With the $200+ on board credits we got and the fact that this really is all inclusive other than Internet, spa treatments and casino.

The food was pretty good (of Capital Grill type quality back in the States) and the service was generally very good indeed. One could nit-pick here and there but that's what it would be. We all had the lowest category cabins (G on decks 7 and8) which were all plenty nice. The cabins are very well laid out with enough room for my 25 dresses and 15 pairs of shoes - with still more to accommodate my husband's stuff. The bathrooms were nice and again very well laid out. If you are over 6'2, you definitely want to request the shower only cabins.
