We just returned from our inaugural, “all inclusive,”11-night cruise with Regent Seven Seas. There were six travelers in our party. Our journey was to the British Isles on the Navigator. The trip met but did not exceed our expectations, with a few minor and two major disappointments. Despite the few problems, we found this cruise to be enjoyable and close to a luxury experience. This was our 13th cruise overall.
Regent is known for including Business Class international air travel as a part of its packages. Their booking for us went well. The chosen air itinerary was efficient and our British Air flights were comfortable and well-serviced.
The Pre-Cruise in London, purchased by two of us, was fair. We were housed in a very nice hotel with a good room, included and good breakfasts, and an incredible, central location (we could walk in 10 minutes to Buckingham Palace and to many of the major sites). The two tours we took were mixed. The London tour was fantastic while the second tour to the English countryside including Bath and the Cotswolds was disappointing and a waste of time (with way too much bus time). A second day in London seeing the sites we missed and perhaps visiting some museums would have been much more desirable. Our transfers to the hotel and to the ship on the third Pre-Cruise day went flawlessly.
Relatively spacious. Clean. Older bathrooms that could use some updating. Nice walk-in closet with a safe (old and in need of replacement). New flat screen TV with many offerings. Comfortable bed.
Quick tour of major attractions and 1.5 hours at Edinburgh Castle
Did a City of Glascow tour with 1.5 hours at the wonderful Kelvingrove Art Museum venue. Fabulous guide.
We walked the city and went to a pub. All was good
Abysmal. Missed the real highlights of this great city due to the ineptitude of a terrible guide.
