This was my first Regent cruise. It was chosen for its itinerary and except for one stop, it was wonderful.
Smaller ship means smaller number of passengers, easier to maneuver on board.
Crew was exceptional. Everyone, from tender attendants to officers were pleasant and engaged with the guests. They truly made you feel welcomed and special.
The 24 day trip allowed you to form friendships with fellow guests and staff.
The all inclusive aspect of Regent is a joy. No worries- all is included!
Entertainment was top notch. The Orchestra had such talented musicians, the singer/dancers were broadway-worthy and most of the guest entertainers were entertaining.
Navigator has a lot of vibration. I did get used to it but took a few days.
One of the shore stops was awful. Boca De Valeria was purely a staged "village" fill of children begging for attention but 8n reality they want you money. I do understand that tourism is important for these people but I also feel that it was a total waste of a day. Another day in Manous or Santarem would have been much better. There were so many sites to see in those cities and only 1 day each was not enough.
Overall, I loved this cruise and the Navigator. Looking forward to another Regent vacation!!
We were the last cabin aft. Expected a fair amount of motion but the vibration was a bit bothersome at times. Otherwise, cabin was spacious, clean and we were well taken care of by our room attendants.
