We had a great experience on this cruise and felt that we got real value for our money. The mood on the ship was positive and upbeat. We met some great folks from this board and had plenty of enjoyable dinners and conversations.

Food and Wine - This was an area that really shined. The service and quality of food on this cruise was exceptional. Chef Cornel's menu selections were superb incorporating many old favorites (soft shelled crab, dover sole, beef wellington) as well as more local flavor (Greek poolside buffet, for example). We had many poolside buffets and they were all very good quality (Pasta buffet with an amazing large Tiramisu prepared in the largest paella pan I have ever seen; Indian curry, Greek, Mexican, etc). The wine selection was exceptional. We met a wine steward named Emmanuel early on in the cruise - he was fantastic. We loved every wine he suggested and he is a very pleasant individual - a great asset for Regent. Lots of "new world" wines served.On this cruise, I tried a number of selections from Chile - all really good.

La Veranda, Compass Rose, Prime 7 and Signatures were all superb. I would have to give the edge to Signatures over Prime 7 although we enjoyed our meals very much in both venues. Service in all the venues was prompt and pleasant even though we had a full ship. Most notably, great service from all Compass Rose staff, Prime 7 (Kerti, Chimi, Dinur(sp?)), La Veranda (Sylvester - Thank you). The F & B Manager (Davor) was very visible asking passengers for feedback and checking in with them regarding their food. Pool Grill service was great as well. I love the PG menu on the Mariner and we ate there several times post excursion. One issue I noticed is that on a full ship the space in front of the buffet line in La Veranda gets really tight - this space as it is configured is not ideal.
