Cabin: Deluxe Suite

We returned from an amazing time on board the Navigator. Service, quality of food/presentation as well as our new-found friends made this a wonderful experience. Embarkation as well as disembarkation were flawless. Our suite was well equipped with a stand up shower and tub, large walk-in closet, plenty of storage as well as complimentary binoculars which allowed us to witness right off our balcony two whales dancing in and out of the water. The Navigator is a small ship that is geared toward personalized service. The pool deck is small but roomy when considering only 490 passengers. By the end of our first day both restaurant service personnel as well as pool staff greeted us by name. I have read many so-so posts about Prime 7 restaurant. I'm not sure why because we dined there twice and both seatings were exceptional. Both the steak, fish and lamb were cooked to perfection. The main dining room, Compass Rose, has a delightful menu with plenty of choices for breakfast lunch and dinner. 24-hour room service will bring any items from Compass Rose to your suite in short order, delivered hot and perfectly prepared.

There are many complaints about the ships vibration however our suite was quiet and perfectly located near the elevator/stairway. La Veranda by day and Sett Mari in the evenings offers a buffet type offering with your main course being ordered from the waitstaff. Again, the food was prepared to perfection. My only negative comment is that in La Veranda, which is located upper deck at the stern of the ship, does have a real vibration issue. Kind of like getting a massage while dining. If you are prone to sea sickness I suggest getting a set of patches prescribed from your doctor. We had three sea-days and the patch did help my better half from getting motion sickness.

Regent hosted a pool party dinner one evening. It was spectacular. From a whole roast pig to sushi, steaks, lamb, grilled fish and more. After dinner a live band played. Complete with dancing. Couldn't have had more fun. The poolside homemade ice cream is a must! Offered with every type of topping imaginable. The sea salt caramel and the pistachio were my two favorites..... or maybe the strawberry or the rocky road? Ugh, so delicious.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Suite

Cabin D

Suite 850 is the perfect location near mid-ship and not too high so the ships movement/vibrations are not really felt. Our friends occupied suite 852 and the ship's engineering staff came and removed the balcony divider between our two balconies. The beds are dreamy as are the bed linens. Having a stand-up shower as well as separate tub was a big plus. Our walk-in closet complete with built-in chest was huge and allowed us to hang all of our clothes and put everything away nicely. No clutter. On several occasions we had chilled champagne and cheese platter delivered to our room. No they do not offer a charcuterie plate unfortunately. In-suite dining is a wonderful option as the waitstaff will serve by course. The air conditioning worked as advertised and having both a desk area as well as vanity was also a big plus. Our bar/refrigerator was stocked daily with sodas and beer as well as spirits. The Illy espresso machine was a nice plus each morning.

Port Reviews


We reside in Winter Park so traveling to Miami was effortless. Only a 3.5 hour drive. We were in our suite by 1pm. Parking as well as the embarkation process was a non-issue. A chilled bottle of champagne greeted us in our cabin.

St. Barts

We were booked on the helmet dive but it was cancelled. After enduring the previous two poorly orchestrated excursions on St. Maarten and St. Lucia, we were happy to be on our own. We rented ATVs and toured the island on our own.
