Seven Seas Explorer Cruise Review by Chief97
- Sail Date: March 2018
- Destination: Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Concierge Suite
As with the previous cruise it was to celebrate our anniversary.
In 2018 we sailed again, this time on the Explorer. It's a little bigger. The gym is definitely bigger and better. The restaurants all were great as well. Some of the docking was a bit inconvenient compared to previous trips. At Key West we docked opposite the main , downtown , area (less expensive docking fees? ) but we had a trolley take us to downtown.
That particular shore excursion, "Discovering Key West" did not measure up. It was probably beyond Regent's control. We were supposed to visit an aquarium , a ship-wreck museum, and the tour of the town. The driver did an O.K. narrative but less than in 2015. When he dropped us off downtown, we, and many others asked about the ship-wreck museum and the aquarium. He responded by quickly stating it was included on our tickets but none of us EVER saw an aquarium ( it was at the other end of town ). The museum was an easy find.
As with any cruise there's a few self-important, arrogant, haughty old idiots that think they're above everyone but the other 98% of those aboard were very unaffected and friendly.
Overall, a pretty good trip and we'll do it again.

Trolley TourSecond time we've done the tour. The tour was shorter in narrative, faster driving, and the driver failed to inform us about the museum or the aquarium. We NEVER saw the aquarium and he only mentioned it , and the museum, after some of us asked him after he dropped us off. Don't do this tour! It was called "Discover Key West"View All 139 Trolley Tour Reviews

Swimming with DolphinsYou do not "swim" but rather stand in waist-deep and beautiful ocean water while the dolphins swim by you. Very informative and entertaining. We'll go back.View All 44 Swimming with Dolphins Reviews
