We chose this cruise for it's unique Maiden Voyage and our 15th on Regent/ Raddison. Additionally, the itinerary was superb as we visited 8 ports not visited on any other cruise we completed. Additionally, this is the 2ne Regent cruise we started in Monte Carlo and ended with a sail into Venice The ship is exquisite inside and out with very modern and deluxe common areas, bars, and spaciousness. Theater seating was excellent though no drink holders! The absence of a photo lab and photographers was welcomed! One area that was disappointing was the lack of a full promenade walking area. Seems lacking in all new liners. Dining was a pleasure as with just 750 guests we were never crowed or had to wait for a table share to open. The specialty restaurants were outstanding in every aspect from the greeting to the after dinner cordials. For room service we received a 5 minute "warning" that our order was on it's way. I want to add that is was great never to see a Food Service cart in the hallway or even the room steward's cleaning carts! Obviously, we enjoyed it enough to book another trip while on board!

Cabin Review

Superior Suite
Cabin F2 711
The Balcony door wouldn't seal and so it "whistled" on windy nights; has to place tape to seal the door.

Toilet issues on front section of ship eventually fixed but I was annoyed
