Regent offered the best itinerary and time of the Amazon River...hence we booked it! A careful evaluation on our return home leaves me with the following comments: The best..."all-inclusive" means just that...you pay for nothing - wifi, shore excursions, specialty restaurants, booze, friendliness of the crew, gratuities...nothing! The "very good"...cabins were comfortable and well serviced, for shipboard, we had good wifi, Prime 7 for steak was excellent (though service was a bit tardy). The "average" and "below"...daily entertainment on sea days was very limited, evening entertainment was weak. Restaurant service was very inconsistent - one day every efficient, next you would have to wave down staff to check on meal. The layout of the ship...all entertainment, lounges, etc. are at med-ship or at the stern...meaning that you must go on-deck to experience any port entries, sea life watching, etc. No lounge offers sea views while sipping a cocktail. Would we go back? Only if no other line offered an equal itinerary.

Great itinerary and shore excursions! Onboard activities not so great.

Cabin Review

Navigator Suite
Cabin NS 919
Good location...far enough from elevators and the self-service laundry, but convenient enough to save steps. Only one problem...on rougher days/nights at sea, there was a noise coming from the head board wall that was very annoying. Response was quick to my call, however it was the story of taking my car to the shop when it makes a "funny" noise...couldn't get it to repeat when crew was present. Oh well, get ear plugs.

This cabin experiences non of the vibration mentioned in other reviews.
