There is cost and value for money. Whilst not cheap, we believe RSS cruises are excellent value for money and our pick of choice if the destinations are right. We have been on several other cruises with Seabourn and Silversea. The voyager has up to 700 passengers and mainly balcony cabins. It is to have a refit later this year being 13 yrs old but seemed to us to be generally very acceptable with maintenance work on the go outside and inside all the time. Our 'suite' on deck ten a few doors from the bridge (concierge D) was fine with a comfortable bed and a temper pillow provided. A good shower and walk in wardrobe plus adequate living space. Also very quiet - we have booked the same cabin for next summer. There are four restaurants all of good quality. Signatures and Prime 7 are those you book once beforehand, but we found several visits possible by going for a late booking or on spec for a no show. Our favourite is Signatures (French). Compass Rose excellent but slower service than previously (?NCL cutbacks?).Sitting outside the Italian restaurant was a great treat in the (very) warm weather we had. We do not dine in the suite but occasional snack or breakfast room service was prompt and served with a smile - as was the daily phone call for early morning tea. Pool deck lunches were very good with many international themes. The staff do 3 excellent entertainments in the form of a 'garden party' on the pool deck, a wonderful bbq with ice sculptures, and 'KREW Kapers" on stage on the last night. We enjoyed the visiting entertainers but are less impressed personally by the very repeatable Jean Ann Ryan group - you could be on any of the boats on any cruise and not know which, when they are doing the dance and aerial regimes - time for something different, but we were happy to linger over a meal of sit outside the bar some evenings instead. The Regent 8 piece band was versatile and excellent and all the music by the singing keyboard duo, pianist and guitar were of high standard. there was no shortage of venues for music throughout the afternoon and evening. Crew are friendly and service very good. Several members of staff recognised us from previous RSS cruises on other boats! Shore excursions which are in with the cruise price were of good quality with , to be fair, some guides of variable English speaking quality. The two best dictions were by female guides in Kuala Lumpur and Mumbai. The flights were Emirates business class and a bonus was the direct flight from/to Manchester to Dubai without the hell of going through LHR! We had three days land programme in Singapore staying at the excellent Fullerton hotel near the marina. There were two well structured half day excursions and an evening meal visit to the Marina Sands Floor 54 restaurant for a memorable eating experience. This cruise gave us chance to see S E Asia in parts we have not been to - it did not disappoint. We shall return to see more of the area - and we shall be happy to travel again with Regent. Indeed we are going transatlantic with them in November on the new ship. Our minor hopes for change - a teapot for early morning tea rather than a thermos; the ice cream remaining open after 4pm on pool deck by making it available in the pool bar; advance warning of events like the deck bbq so you do not book something else (or have to cancel something else) that night!

Regent Seven seas ticks the boxes for us.
