We have been on all Regent ships, but not the new Explorer. When offered a deal too good to pass up by our TA, accepted for this BTB, Miami-Barcelona-Venice. Added bonus was opportunity to join Regent management in Miami for several pre-cruise events. No complaints to date. Nothing is perfect. Yes, on one dinner occasion at Compass Rose, when both of us were momentarily away from our table, an attendant removed the salt and pepper shakers. That was, obviously, a signal for another to remove everything else. When we returned, were offered the dessert menu. Wait! Still main course to go. Our waiter then appeared to reevaluate, and reset our table, complete with salt and pepper shakers. No big deal. One of those things you recall. All staff are attentive, professional, and responsive. Food quality--particularly the fish and chicken--excellent. Wine selections are a cut-above. Can ask for another variety of a particular white or red, not necessarily on the menu as offered for that dinner: "No Problem." d Suite accommodation is spacious. Large, walk-in closet, and other amenities, as advertised. Just review the basic pay-out on-line, or in the catalogue; double check with your TA; and, there should be NO unpleasant surprises. Had the best Bridge Tour ever, on any 5+star ship. The Captain is a genuinely friendly, approachable guy. A solid hand-shake while looking you straight in the eye. Completed the first segment to Barcelona two days ago. Currently on the second, at Monte Carlo. Tops so far. Will publish our final evaluation upon returning home on/about April 21st. GoARMY!
