This was only our second cruise. Our first was with P&O and although this cruise was far more expensive, as they say, you get what you pay for. What was really impressive was the way embarkation, tours and disembarkation was managed, it was all very well organised. All the staff, without exception, were friendly and couldn't do enough to help. Being "all inclusive" it was really nice to be able to drink and eat what you liked without having to sign for it and there was no reluctance to give you what you wanted, as there is in some AI hotels. We had chosen a Penthouse suite which was really spacious with a very well stocked shower room and large comfortable bed - where the linen was changed daily. The only criticism was that the room at the side of the bed was very limited. The lounge area was an excellent size. We didn't make a great deal of use of our butler but he was friendly enough and provided our daily choice of canapes. We only dined three nights in the Speciality restaurants and we felt he could have been more helpful in that area. The only disappointments were that we left out Lesbos - because of the migrant problem - but spent the day at sea rather than finding another Greek island to visit (as the Silversea Spirit did) and that one passenger lift was out of action for the entire cruise. But would we travel Regent again - a definite yes.

Almost Perfect
