Actually I was pretty nervous taking a trip like this but after we arrived at the airport in Monte Carlo, we were met by young professional Regent employees who quickly set our minds at ease. The pre cruise stay at the 5 star hotel was flawless and the breakfast the next morning was fabulous. As we entered the restaurant that was right on the Mediterranean, we could see our ship the Mariner.....what a sight.
I really enjoyed the way we were taken care of by all employees on the Mariner. Our room was beautiful with a very nice balcony. There was a beautiful basket of fruit and champagne as we entered the room. Also a big welcome to Bob and Beverly on the TV monitor.
The food was delicious and lots of it. We could visit any restaurant and sit anywhere we chose. And hey.....no tipping. It's all included. You're not "nickeled and dimed" to death.
305 sq ft was plenty of room. My friend and I shared a king size bed. There was plenty of room for all our clothes, etc. Bathroom was not huge but ample room for shaving/showering. Our attendant kept the room in great shape when we returned from outings, etc. Good attention to detail in the cabin.
