Sail Date: Jan 2019
Cabin: Penthouse Suite

This was our first ocean cruise, but I am sure that it cannot get any better than this cruise experience on Regent Explorer.

We stayed in a Penthouse A suite (917), which is beautiful and very functional room, with a huge balcony. The walk-in closet in the Penthouse suite is a bit small, but we still managed to fit the contents of two big suitcases into to it without any problem. The empty suitcases can conveniently be stored under the bed. The shower cabin is absolutely fantastic and so is the quality of the bed.

We arrived at the pier in Rio de Janeiro for embarkation at around 1:30pm and we were onboard 15 minutes later. Everything was so well organised, and it continued like that throughout the cruise. The cruise was fully booked, but the only time it felt crowded was upon embarkation when everyone was having lunch in the Veranda/Pool restaurants, but after the suites became available, it never felt crowded again.

Cabin Review

Penthouse Suite

Cabin A

Gorgeous suite with a very big balcony/terrace. Close to the stairs and elevators but still completely quiet. We really loved the huge shower cabin with water coming from all directions. The walk-in shower is a little small but still OK.

The bed is one of the most comfortable ones we have ever tried.

Highly recommended

Port Reviews

Rio de Janeiro

The scenery of Rio is breathtaking, we spent three nights in Ipanema prior to the cruise


Such a beautiful and charming place, which we explored on own. We took a buggy ride, which was a great way to discover the beautiful surroundings

Santos (Sao Paulo)

The place worth seeing, but the wow factor is missing

Punta del Este

Beautiful place and great biking tour


The city as such is rather underwhelming but we had a great bike excursion.
