This is our fourth Regent cruise and first on the Voyager. We took the pre cruise tour to Chiang Mai. The air included was basic economy and when we arrived in Chiang Mai the tours were decent. The dinner we were served with local dance was not a Thai dinner. Getting back to Bangkok and to the ship was efficient but we arrived to the ship just prior to setting sail. Our room was across from the laundry. The depiction in their brochures does not show it directly across from the suite door but it is. You open your door to the open laundry room. Mind you, these are Penthouse B suites and the noise, smell and heat from the laundry room was a definite miss. Additionally, there is a definite vibration from the engine in the rooms and dining areas. So much, the liquid in the glasses moved from side to side. Dining was good at the specialty restaurants. Chartreuse is nice but the menu didn’t change. Same with Prime Seven. Compass Rose had some major issues this cruise. Basics such as sorbet served between courses and petit fours at the end were not offered. The food on occasion was cold. The lunches in Compass Rose were excellent. Just the dinners were below par. The entertainment was excellent at times and just OK at other times. The lectures were good but the Harvard Professor wasn’t knowledgeable about specifics for Regent. The shore excursions were hit or miss. There were many spot on itineraries and then you had the mediocre required gem store stop or government required museums and unappealing included lunches. Regent tends to charge for popular tours such as Valley of the Kings and Petra which defeats the purpose of an all inclusive. Service was lacking on this cruise. The cabin steward was not up to the Regent standard. Missing basics such as trash, time change notices and distribution of daily “Passages”. Overall, the service has declined from our past experiences in 2016(2) and 2017.

Service has diminished.

Cabin Review

Penthouse Suite
Cabin B 767
Horrible. Your door opens to the laundry room. Heat, smell and loud talkers at 6:45 AM.
