  3. Seven Seas Navigator
This was our first cruise on the Seven Seas Navigator and indeed the first with Regent - previously we have sailed on Seabourn and Silversea. We mainly chose this cruise for the itinerary (Montreal to New York), and its dates which fitted well with our earlier travels through Canada. We also liked the size of the ship, which factored into our choice. And we were keen to try Regent. It was a very enjoyable cruise..easy, friendly embarkation with prompt suite availability after a leisurely lunch, very good included excursions and fabulous meals and entertainment. It has what I would call a lovely casual elegance to it, compared to other cruises we had been on, which occasionally felt a little too formal - we prefer relaxed elegance. We mostly dined at Compass Rose, our favourite, but enjoyed La Veranda (Setti Mare) and Prime 7 as well . However the latter two did not have as much menu variation from day to day over our period on board. For breakfast we either went to the Breakfast Buffet or had room service which we find works well for us on excursion days if you order early. We had been a little concerned about some of the reviews mentioning vibration on the Navigator. We honestly did not feel this even though we did have some days of heavy seas. The only thing we did notice was that during the storms we had on 2 nights, our particular cabin seemed to have a creaking/ rubbing noise in its wall/ceiling area - no one else we spoke to had the same issue though. Looking at the deck plans it seems that our particular suite 811 structurally looks to be at the end of a ship 'section' - so we are thinking that perhaps that is what the issue was - it was fine on normal sea days - only happened during the storms. And such things can happen in storms anywhere really. Overall it was a fabulous cruise - enjoyed it so much we are cruising on the Navigator again in August - and we hear that it has had some extensive renovations in the meantime - so very much looking forward to it! Oh - and a little hotel tip - we booked into the St Paul Hotel in Montreal which was just beautiful, by the Old Town restaurants and boutiques, and close to the port as well

Cabin Review

Deluxe Suite
Cabin D 811
We had been a little concerned about some of the reviews mentioning vibration on the Navigator. We honestly did not feel this even though we did have some days of heavy seas.
The only thing we did notice was that during the storms we had on 2 nights, our particular cabin seemed to have a creaking / rubbing noise in its wall/ceiling area above the bed head - no one else we spoke to had the same issue though. Looking at the deck plans it seems that our suite, 811, is on what looks to be a ship section end point so we are thinking that perhaps that is what the issue was - it was fine on normal sea days - only happened during the storms. And such things can happen in storms anywhere really.
The next cabins along did not have it though - so its's worth noting, if you can choose another, perhaps that would be a good idea.

We are cruising again on the Navigator in August and have chosen a different suite location - same category but a little more mid-ship, so will report back again.
