Regent - Mariner met all our high expectations. Service was great as was the food. We splurged a bit and had a butler (also came with a slightly larger room). He ( Ryan ) was also terrific and glad we splurged, but the trip would have been fantastic without the butler. The bathroom was elegant, the closet much bigger than we expected, service was prompt, the lectures (Terry Breen) were really helpful, informative and entertaining. The boat never felt crowded. Generally we were able to get a table ( dining or lounge ) where ever and when ever we wanted. We disembarked near Anchorage, and that was a bit frustrating as it was never clear where we would rendezvous with our luggage. One of our excursions was cancelled (it was an extra cost and not enough people signed up) which was disappointing but other excursions were available. We were due a refund and Regent was happy to refund with a ship credit (not!) or cash. Wish they had been able to send credit thru to charge card. Really enjoyed all the excursions. I would recommend and definitely go on another Regent cruise.
