We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. We had a choice of Regent or their sister line, Oceania for the same itinerary. We decided to give Regent a try and we were very happy we did. We had sailed Oceania before and we found Regent and Oceania comparable in most ways. We also found the cost to be about the same when you add the things that are included on Regent to similar things at extra cost on Oceania. We also liked that business class air was available. The things that we found better on Regent than Oceania:
Embarkation was smooth and simple.
We disembarked independently and that went smoothly as well.
This is a low category cabin but it was larger and better laid out than expected and that comparable cabins we have had on other lines. There were plenty of electrical outlets which is not always true on other lines. The bathroom had a large shower with a built-in shower seat. It was very comfortable and better than showers we have experienced on other ships. The veranda was small but adequate. The cabin was a very good value.
