This was our second Regent cruise and it did not disappoint. Was it perfect, no, but very minor complaints. The pre-cruise hotel (included at concierge level and above) the Melia Sarria was OK, nothing special, but the location was good and everything was well organized. Embarkation was a breeze - probably took a grand total of 10 minutes and we were on board with a glass of champagne in hand. There was a very large group on board (200 people from the Cheesecake Factory on an incentive trip). The only complaints we had surrounded this group (not the people themselves, just the dynamics and challenges of a large group on-board). The first two nights, the service in Compass Rose and Sette Mari was really bad. The staff was trying really hard, but it was apparent they were stretched too thin with the large group (we found out later that there were group dinners those nights for the "Cheesecakers"). Also, one night the Horizons lounge was closed to everyone who wasn't "Cheesecake". Disappointing since that is the best bar to be in as you sail away from port. But... First World problems people! The rest of the cruise was fantastic. After the first two nights, the service in all of the restaurants was impeccable. Food - was very good overall. Signatures was amazing. Prime 7 really good and Compass Rose was solid. We really liked La Veranda for lunch. They had two lunch buffets on the pool deck that were awesome. Room service for breakfast was not great, just OK. Scrambled eggs were runny and coffee not good at all (why is the cream floating on top??). The included wine was also good most nights. You're not going to be drinking Opus One so keep the expectations in check, but the featured wines are decent and the wine list is reasonable if you want to order a bottle. Spa - awesome! Book before your cruise for the best times. Excursions - overall really good. On both our Regent cruises, we've done mostly included excursions and paid for a few Regent Choice ones. We've found the quality of both to be about the same, just depends what you want to do and see. The quality of the guides will naturally vary, but all were very professional. Stateroom- awesome. Our cabin steward Harlan was a rockstar. We requested lots of water and pellegrino and he kept our room well stocked and immaculate. Service - very good. Professional and respectful, but not stuffy. We got to know some of the staff in the restaurants and bars. We really enjoyed speaking with William at the pool bar one afternoon. He had some great advice for us on exploring Lisbon on our own. Entertainment - good, a lot better than our first Regent cruise. This category is not their strong suit, but we really enjoyed the Caberet night and Flamenco show. And the Krew Kapers show was really great. Overall, we really like the Regent experience- the size of the ship (only 700 passengers), service, quality, etc.

Another great Regent experience
