A great itinerary in Southeast Asia. This was my fifth Regent cruise, and found the overall experience very good, but slipped from past Regent Cruises. Ship recently refurbished and very attractive.
Would have rated it excellent, but for the dining experience, which I found to have slipped compared to previous Regent cruises. Menu in the Compass Rose was adaquate, not particularly creative. Service was inconsistent for both food and wine. I understand that a major staff change was made in port, an explanation, not an excuse.
Dinner in Prime 7 a big failure. Ordered a filet, medium. Received a filet well done on outside, red raw on the inside. Not certain how they did that, other than cooking meat not completely thawed.Other dining options
Dining in Chartreuse a beautiful experience. An imaginative menu, perfect excecusion.
Have always enjoyed Regent, bot there were enough stumbles to suggest looking at other cruise lines
Cabin service service was excellent. All attendants cordial and accommodating. Needs well anticipated.
