Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2015
  • Destination: Alaska
  • Cabin Type: Penthouse Suite

We (45, no kids, non smoking, travel frequently) loved this ship and this cruise. The ship is gorgeous! Because it's so small, it's easy to get anywhere in 10 minutes or less. Staff is superior, always looking to make your experience a better one. We had a penthouse cabin with a butler. Room was beautiful, so spacious with a lovely balcony. In the end we felt we didn't benefit much from a butler. But our cabin class gave us the ability to choose a cabin and gave us advanced opportunity to choose excursions which was a real treat. Food was amazing. The Compass Rose restaurant was outstanding. Excellent service with wonderful views of the sea and menus which changed completely every day. Tables with beautiful linens-- much fancier than we expected. Beverage package was awesome. High end liquors and wines. Tip: be sure to ask to see the included wine list. They'll open a bottle just for you! Each night a few wines are featured but there is also a list. We had some fabulous wines. Entertainment was thin. This is an older crowd but there are 40 somethings as well. Shows were ok. Live music was ok but ended at 10:30 p. Wish the live piano played longer as well. I think it ended at 9. Lots of wonderful included excursions. Having everything included, even tips, was so nice. While this is an expensive line, you aren't nickel and dimed for anything. Well worth the money.

BEWARE: of the fly fishing excursion which is an extra 800$ per couple. Trip included 10 people in the same location. Two lazy guides, only one of whom had a net. No picture taking! We fished over each other. Newbies to experienced anglers made it tough to get any attention or help. Waders even leaked! Wrote detailed email to Regent and was basically told no one said there would be photo taking and nobody else complained. Several people openly complained during the excursion. Total waste of $800!

Have fun! We'll be cruising here again because of the luxury and small size of the ship (500 guests, 300 staff!). Naturalist was onboard for lectures which was terrific.

Cabin Review

Penthouse Suite

Beautiful! Huge bathroom with full size tub and separate shower. Spectacular amenities. Heavy dark curtains to block out light. Very quiet. Wonderful turn down service. Size able walk in closet with a safe and tons of hangers. Fabulous comfy bed. Sofa area to have room service breakfast every morning. Espresso maker. Riedel glassware for drinks. Great fridge restocked every day.

Fishing

DO NOT WASTE YOUR $400 per person. Overcrowded (10 people!!), lazy guides, bad equipment, no photo taking, beginners to advanced anglers meant little attention for those more experienced. Contacted Regent with complaints but snarky response and no refund.

Prince Rupert

?? Didn't take an excursion or visit this port.

Vancouver

We loved Vancouver! Visit Grandby Island by ferry. Enjoy Hi's steakhouse which was absolutely fabulous start to finish! We stayed at the Sutton Place Hotel because we needed two nights and cruise was only paying one night at the Ritz. Second night at the Ritz was $600. Sutton place is lovely and walkable to the ship, however nickel and dime operation. Charge for wi-fi and even second serving of in room coffee! We were sightseeing much of the time so didn't see much of the hotel. Lovely bar and restaurant but expensive. We didn't try it because there are so many nice places around the hotel. We walked everywhere!
