We chose this cruise line upon advice of a travel agent and used it first in March of 2015 ( Navigator ). We felt guilty we were treated so well. the excursions and ports were all fantastic and we could not find enough time in the day to do or enjoy all the ship had to offer. The captain and many of the crew we recognized from the Navigator in 2015. That made us feel very confident. 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.

Great time with a few glitches

Cabin Review

Concierge Suite
Cabin E 614
Plenty of room and great balcony. A slight issue with a plugged drain which was quickly resolved and we were given a ship credit for our trouble. We were overwhelmed by their customer service and attention of detail.
