A point by point list of my impressions on my first cruise wth Regent.
First off, Regent's Scan Design style of decor is not to my liking, which is a shame as it set the tone for my first impressions of the ship. However as I was lucky enough to get this cruise at an amazing price, my negative initial first impressions were offset by the quality of almost everything else that Regent is known for, so it balanced out. Plus this was my Bucket Cruise of a Lifetime so I was excited about that alone. I waited a few months to do a review as I've noticed my feelings tend to change over time. Point in fact, when I disembarked I thought it unlikely that I would sail on Regent again. Now - a few months later - I have changed my mind. Especially if the price was right again. I am sailing on Oceania's Marina in a couple of months and am blown away with their exorbitant pricing, which doesn't offer all the bells and whistles that Regent does. So, back to Regent... Or even Celebrity, what with their new Suite Experince.
However, back to my cruise on the Voyager:
Cabin - the PH I was in was spacious and comfortable. It was a an ADA cabin so the bathroom was barrier free and very, very spacious. At the last minute I upgraded to a very spacious PH suite which included the services of a wonderful butler (Bravo Roni!). As I was sick and cabin-bound for a week, that proved to be invaluable. I was quite disappointed in the size of towels however. Oceania are by far more in keeping with what should be offered on an upscale ship, especially in a suite! And I have to wonder whose idea it was to provide a clock that wasn't visible at night
