My wife and I traveled on Regent Mariner for the first time on this cruise line. Even though the ship shows some signs of wear, the crew could not have been more friendly and accommodating. We loved everything about the voyage. The ten sea days were filled with activities, especially an excellent lecturer. We enjoyed playing ACBL sanctioned duplicate bridge on the sea days. We danced every evening to a talented duo in one of the lounges. Most of the shore excursions were excellent. Entertainment was mixed, although the resident singers and dancers were excellent. The staff provided necessary supplies of hand sanitizer and toilet paper for our shore excursions in Brazil. Regent has some nice touches such as a 'block party' on the second evening that allows all the guests to come out of their staterooms to mingle in the corridor while the captain and senior staff race around the ship to greet everyone. Also, the captain was seen frequently and many times greeted us as we went on shore excursions. Because of the friendliness of all the staff and the quality of the food, we decided to book another cruise on Regent.
Cabin was spacious with a great walk-in closet. Shower was only average but adequate. Sitting area could be curtained off from the bed area, allowing one person to sleep longer if desired. Balcony was very good with comfortable loungers.
Very good excursion to primary rain forest. Not mush wildlife but various trees were interesting.
