We have been sailing with Regent since the beginning, over 25 years. We can't say enough how disappointed we were with this cruise.
We booked a Master Suite, the best cabin on the ship. While the cabin was spacious, the shower stall was so small you couldn't even bend over. Secondly we had leaks in the room for the first 5 days of the cruise. We had wet carpet every single day for the first 5 days. There was also a stain on the carpet in the living area that they never were able to get up. We think that the cabin was full of mold as both my husband's and my allergies were terrible. We did ask that they take the carpet up and put down new carpet, but they never did.
We had always enjoyed the food before on Regent but this time. We went to Prime 7 several times and each time the steak (filet) was so tough you could barely chew it. I tried to order the lamb, but each time it was also so tough that you couldn't chew it. We ordered the crab legs and they literally served us a pile of crab meat, most all of it from the body of the crab!! That is not crab legs, just crab meat. They did fix this the next time, but they told us that we had to order "tubes". Not sure why when the menu says crab legs you have to order "tubes". We have never had to do that before. Omelets were horrible as the eggs were never cooked. When you tired to order fried eggs they were either over cooked, or under cooked. The food service in the restaurants was generally good, the food however, was horrible.
Cabin was spacious with plenty of storage. The bed is starting to break down and should be replaced. There was a big stain in the living room that they never good get up. The cabin also had a leak and we had wet carpet for 5 days. It is a front cabin and if you've never had a front cabin, you are never able to use your balcony when you are sailing as they wind is too great. Unfortunately the only nice cabins on The Navigator are at the front of the ship.
We have always loved Barcelona- our 10th time there!
We enjoyed this port.
We've been to Malaga before and always enjoyed. We really loved the trip to Alhambra Palace and Gardens, it was amazing. The lunch we had afterwards was very good as well. Highly recommend.
