My wife and I had a terrific time on the cruise. We were impressed with the ship, the service, the facilities and the food. I won't repeat what others have said about the ship itself: very deluxe, beautiful public areas, well laid out except for the performance theater. Service was superb. Food was diverse and excellent. Organization for embark and disembark were excellent. We could not be more pleased.

A few notes to add to what others have said:

Itinerary: Regent changed the itinerary to replace Egypt with some more Greek islands. This was a big disappointment to us, as we had chosen this cruise in part because of the stops in Egypt. While safety concerns are understandable, there was nothing in particular of concern going on in Egypt at the time of our cruise. And Regent gave notice of the change at a time (to the day!) when cancellation penalties would be significant. Not good. We decided to make lemonade out of lemons by taking a side trip to Athens while the ship made island stops. We asked Regent to make the arrangements and they did an excellent job. The two days in Athens and transport to and from the ship when off without a hitch and were most enjoyable and interesting. Yes, it cost us some money but it was worth it. Fellow passengers were jealous of us that we had done this. Perhaps Regent should have. offered this as an in-cruise extension to all.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda Suite

Superb in every way. Spacious interior, balcony and bathroom. Quiet, even in rough seas. Nicely appointed. Many sockets for digital appliance charging.
