According to the staff on the Mariner we had exceptionally good weather on this 7 day cruise from Whittier to Vancouver (departure July 26). We had sunshine on every day in port except one (Ketchikan). Apparently, no one saw the sun for an entire week on this ship on the cruise immediately before ours, so perhaps this explains why everyone was so cheerful on our ship!
This is our second cruise on Regent; our first was a short trip (4 days) in the Caribbean 18 months ago on the Diamond which is no longer part of the fleet. We were impressed the first time and our second trip on Regent did not disappoint.
Overall, the experience on Regent was exceptional and this was exactly what we were expecting. I do not intend to go into detail on every item, but as other reviews explain, the standard on Regent and the Mariner is very high so you can assume that any areas which dont get a mention are mostly very good or excellent relative to other cruise lines (weve sailed on NCL, Princess, and Carnival).
