Seven Seas Mariner Cruise Review by Pidgeon57756

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2017
  • Destination: the Panama Canal & Central America
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Suite

We chose this Cruise to have a small ship experience through the Panama Canal. The staff could not have been more accommodating. They strove to make the guest happy.

The dining in all venues was excellent. There were some service issues in the Compass Rose Restaurant. Not sure if it was insufficient staffing or training, however it was not the norm rather the exception.

The cabin was clean and comfortable but will probably get a sprucing up soon.

We were overall happy with the ports. Some ports in Central America are not close to the major sites. You must be prepared for bus rides to get to the sites of interest. This is not a failing of the cruise line, it is geography.

We were very happy that our ship stayed overnight in Colon. This allowed an excursion to the Canal land side. It was facinating to watch the ships transverse the Canal. Also to get a look at the new Canal Locks.

We will definitely cruise again with the Regent Seven Seas Line

Cabin Review

Deluxe Suite
Cabin F 872

Great location, close but not too close to the elevators. Although there was the obvious wear and tear, the stateroom was spotlessly clean.

Rode a bus around the downtown. Walking would have been better

Crowded and hot, but a historic City and worth the visit. Is a UNESCO Site
