We chose this cruise partly because of the reviews and partly because it went to a few places that we have not been before.
First, the good:
They had an excellent lecturer aboard and I thought his presentation was phenomenal.
Apart for the very dark decor and low ceilings, I have no complaints about the “suite”
It had lots of drawer space and the seating area could be closed off from the bed area.
It did not, however, come with a butler. Not a deal killer for us, but the similarity priced smaller boats of Seabourn and Silverseas did provide butler service for our suites.
Regent does not seem to care much about details. They rely on buffet service too much, and certainly more than Seabourn or Silverseas, and the reall issue for us was their reliance on cattle call line ups to turn in tickets and sit and hang out in their dark “
ConstellationLounge” theater until your bus is calledfor your mediocre “included” tours.
They don’t send crew on the buses or tours so they don’t seem to care what that experience is like for their clients. We went on Silverseas recently and they had crew on every tour....if something went wrong, the crew was empowered to act. And did.
