  3. Seven Seas Navigator
We took this transatlantic cruise from Lisbon to New York for two reasons. Our first cruise 16 years ago was on the Navigator so we wanted to revisit the ship. Our previous cruise was great and led us many years of wonderful cruising. The second reason was the timing which was great for our purposes. This was an unusually early fall transatlantic leaving in October 6th. We were suprised to find the ship was old and tired and I think needs to be retired. The cruise lacked activities that we normally have on transatlantic cruises such as bridge lessons and organized bridge games. The only real plus was the guest lecturer that was great, For the most part the food was good, especially in Compass Rose. The crew tried hard and most of them, but not all, had a great attitude. The worst part was the entertainment. The production numbers were amateurish and our local high school would do a much better job. We had two guest entertainers that were ok but not great. The band played mostly jazz music which is not really suitable for dancing and did not create a good atmosphere for the evening. I am not giving up on Regent and we will book another cruise on one of their other ships. The Navigator just isn’t for us.

Not a great cruise

Cabin Review

Deluxe Suite
Cabin E 622
The suite was ok, great bed. The bathroom was a little old looking and having only one sink doesn’t work well.
