Sail Date: Aug 2015
Cabin: Window Suite

We sailed from Vancouver to Alaska then to San Francisco, from there down to Central America, through the canal and then up to New York. We were so looking forward to what should have been the trip of a lifetime and whilst of the time is was very good there were just too many niggly issues, so for us a let down.

This was only our 2nd cruise - the first on Seaborn - and we thought this would be as good, and maybe Regent are but this ship is not.

Alaska was wonderful, some trips curtailed due to bad weather and surprisingly no pro-active suggestions or help from the ship re alternatives. This was a complaint for all of the cruise, things happened - and we understand weather etc but there was little consideration for the passengers who had five straight days at sea!

Cabin Review

Window Suite

Cabin G

Nice enough but just past its best, bit all the doors fitted well and in bad weather the creaking from the fittings etc was enough to wake the dead. This was all topped off by the bathroom flooding into the cabin in the wee small hours, the joy of paddling through cold water at 4:30 in the morning has a way of waking you up!!!

Port Reviews

Vancouver

The problem here was that they put us up in a luxury hotel - Sutton Place - which was lovely except the handling of the luggage was a disaster, and they took as up to a room when we checked in already occupied!!

Ketchikan

Excursion cancelled due to bad weather!

Juneau

Flew over the five glaciers - was wonderful

Sitka

Saw some otters, no other wildlife but the scenery was fabulous!

San Francisco

Change over day so we looked after ourselves

Cabo San Lucas

We didn't stop due to bad weather, and ending up doing five days in a row at sea - not a lot of fun!!

Puntarenas (Puerto Caldera)

Interesting view of the country, the mangrove glide was on a small boat and that was very interesting.

Cartagena (Colombia)

It was OK, they seemed very reluctant to let us off the bus anywhere which made enjoying a very pretty looking city difficult.

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

Absolutely marvellous - can not recommend high enough.

Port Canaveral (Orlando)

We've been here before but this tour showed us so much more - really outstanding tour

Charleston

It was good we saw a lot of the city and learnt a lot of the history - weather wasn't good which takes the edge of things!

New York (Manhattan)

We left the ship here

Victoria

Watching Orcas which was truly brilliant and very moving - loved it!
