Seven Seas Navigator Cruise Review by Pat1961
- Sail Date: June 2015
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Suite
My main criticism is the fact that I was led to believe that the ship is renovated. This is far from the truth. Our cabin did have what appeared to be newly upholstered furniture, drapery, and carpet. However, the bathroom although spacious was original, and it looked it. The fixtures were accented in brass and were dated and worn. The granite was old and definitely not resurfaced. The cabinets were old just as tub and flooring as well! The wall paper throughout the ship looked dingy. The lighting in our cabin was brass (very 1980's). The furniture looked like it was from the 1980's as well. So, Regent's claim of refurbishment is greatly overstated! For the money we spent we expected real renovation--especially since we had two rooms! One good thing is that the beds were comfortable and the linens were decent.
On the passaged from Sitka to Seward the seas were very rough. For the first time on a cruise, I experienced debilitating sea sickness that lasted from mid day until well after midnight. I don't know if the fact that the ship is older and/or smaller contributed toward it, but it was quite miserable.

KayakingIt was very beautiful. However, it was raining. We had to wear heavy rain gear. So it was difficult. Also, we were under the impression that we would be near the glacier. It was far away. Also, shortly after we arrived it was obscured by clouds.View All 24 Kayaking Reviews
Wilderness Tour & Crab FeastDelicious food and great tour. We learned all about crabs and salmon. Saw bald eagles who flew down from their nests when the crew called them. The staff was very friendly.View All 121 Wilderness Tour & Crab Feast Reviews
Sea Otter and Wildlife QuestWe saw sea otters swimming together, bald eagles, a bear from a distance on an island. Very enjoyable excursion. Also, saw Sitka from the water. Sitka in itself really isn't that impressive. However, we quickly walked to the National Park by the pier prior to the excursion, and would have liked to spend more time there if we could have.View All 68 Sea Otter and Wildlife Quest Reviews
White Pass Scenic RailwayBeautiful scenery, great narration, very enjoyable. Also, Skagway is a cute town, very fun and interesting. It's part of the National Park service so we even went on a ranger-guided tour which was great.View All 1,104 White Pass Scenic Railway Reviews
VancouverVancouver is a stunning city with many activities. We went to the Capilano Suspension bridge using the free shuttle bus near the Fairmont. It was worth the time.View All 670 Vancouver Cruise Port Reviews
