Just back from enjoyable cruise. Embarkation quick. Ship in good condition. We had previously sailed on Regal 3 yeas ago and did notice some cutbacks- mainly in deck bars drinks quality and MDR choices but on nights we went we still managed to find something!!Food in Horizon court was great-don't miss the seafood buffet!Crown Grill was good too.

We saw the illusionists and the welsh comedy vocalist shows which were entertaining. Did nt do any others. We thought the resident band, I think they were called The Sound, were poor but the quality of the other musical groups/acts were good with plenty of variety. Ports were good and tenders well organised. On the Regal they made a big thing of every sail away with the band playing live but it only happened once on leaving Kotor- as I mentioned we did nt think much of band so it was no loss I suppose.

Service was good except on sea days on deck,when It was obvious they needed more staff but they all tried to remain cheery. We had an Aft cabin and loved the extra large balcony. Some specks of soot on some days but not a problem. Overall we had a great time with enjoyable pre cruise stays in Athens and post in Barcelona.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Balcony

Cabin DE

Liked extra balcony space. Hardly any soot. Directly under Outrigger aft bar but not a problem for us. People could look down on you if they really wanted to but only time people stood at rail was the first night sail away and at Kotor. If you sat near door they could nt really see you. We liked the extra walk to certain areas but aft lifts close anyway.

Port Reviews


Did own thing. Hiked up to village-lovely. Cable car down. Don t recommend Donkeys as saw a few who just would not budge and people had to get off and walk.
