This was very our first cruise (25 days) so we have nothing to compare this to. We were accompanied by friends who are experienced travelers - this was their fifth cruise on RSS which was helpful, especially getting adjoining state rooms so we could compare notes or decide where to dine. The staff was professional and polite from the moment we boarded in Auckland to disembarking in Singapore. It is difficult to describe the highlights beyond the obvious amazing ports of call. I really enjoyed the parties on the top deck and met some delightful people. We had pre-booked excursions for most of the port days and the staff was so accommodating whether it was my spouse and I or the four of us. Once I swapped an excursion with my friend she could not attend without a problem. I thought I would be bored on "sea days" but was not at all. I took part in fun group activities or did nothing but lounge at the pool deck to read or draw, even watched an occasional movie and felt like it was a good balance of my time. Zay Lynn made sure every wish came true, sometimes without even asking; having the bed made and room cleaned while we ate breakfast with amazing timing, other staff made sure I could get where I wanted to go when I was directionally challenged, the yoga classes were good, massage great, lectures were stimulating and informative. We were able to have a kitchen tour. We enjoyed a variety of foods we'd never had before and ordering specialty drinks was a treat. Our bed was very comfortable and we slept well. My husband has some food restrictions and the staff was great about getting his menu in advance and accommodated him at which ever restaurant we went to. I wish I would list all the names of the excellent staff. Sharing desserts became our tradition and ending our evening with either entertainment or preparing for the next day made this entire trip a dream come true. We would definitely cruise with RSS on another destination.
Response from JanayF, Regent Seven Seas Cruises
The bathroom was large, always clean, I personally liked having a dressing table. We made use of the safe and all the room in the closet. We felt secure on the occasional rough seas. Having railings in the hallways were helpful. We liked being on the same deck as the laundry.
Was not expecting the sales area at the end of the walk.
