This was our eighth Regent cruise and last. The trip was billed as "journey to nirvana" with the highlight two days in Saigon. They claimed the weather was bad so they cancelled the port call in Vietnam. Then they cancelled the stop in Malaysia. We were left with a lot of sea days and no "nirvana" The real reason they could not reschedule these stops was that it was Chinese New Year and no on was around to answer their calls.They should never have scheduled this trip at that time.
The food was ordinary and service in the Compass Rose was very slow. They did not have enough crew on board. Only the Prime 7 had food worthy of Regent. The entertainment was unappealing. The cruise director seemed better suited for a Carnival cruise rather than Regent,.Their free trips spent more time on the bus than seeing sights. They did have 2 excellent lecturers. Since being taken over by Royal Carribean Regent is no longer a premier cruise line. Corners are being cut to save money. Not worth the money.
Large and roomy. excellent service from stewardess and butler.
four hours and spent most of the time in the bus in traffic, two 30 minute stops
