Seven Seas Navigator Cruise Review by Missymssy
- Sail Date: May 2017
- Destination: Bermuda
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Suite
We had the first night at hotel in Miami. That was extremely disorganized. Even though Regent knew of an embarkation time change weeks before and notified me, they aparently didnt tell anyone at the hotel. Or the staff just didnt know. The Epic hotel, imo, was a complete disaster. On the plus side, transport both from airport and from hotel to port was great. Very organized.
The ship itself definitely not worth the amount we paid. I did read other reviews prior, so perhaps Navigator isn"t a fair representation of Regent. If not, it should be much cheaper than the other 3 in Regent's fleet. Since it was nicely refurbished, it looked really great. But old. There was a lot of vibration and noise! I dont think all elevators were working simultaneously at any time the entire cruise. So you can imagine the wait times! And they actually use this ship for world cruises? I had my fill after only 11 nights. Definitely not a luxury experience.
Service was excellant, everywhere. All waitstaff, bar staff, cabin steward.... They all go out of their way for you.
Any shows or entertainment were definitely geared to a much older crowd. Not an issue though. The crew gave a great performance on the last night. Not being a drinker I really can't comment on lounges or nightlife.
The food was good, but not the best. Certainly not what I was expecting. Room service menu was poor. But if it is during dinner, you can order from Compass Rose.
We were both very pleased with the shore excursions. Both the quality and the way Regent handled them-very organized. Even when there were time changes. Towels and bottled water as you leave ship. But then, this is all what you should expect for a luxury cruise, right?
Overall, I would probably do Regent cruise again only if it were a different ship. Or a LOT cheaper! Otherwise I would go with a more casual line. I booked another cruise for 2019, but not with Regent.

MiamiWhile we didn't really book an excursion, we did take advantage of the Hop on/Hop off bus tour provided by Regent on disembarkation day. This was an unexpected treat. We both enjoyed it.View All 2,427 Miami Cruise Port Reviews

Airboat TourExcellent. The location was changed at last minute (due to water levels). So even though the time on boat was shortened from what was originally booked, we thought it was great.View All 71 Airboat Tour Reviews
