We chose the cruise because of our prior excellent experience on Regent, including the Navigator and because of the interesting, 20 day itinerary. Exploring 10 ports in Norway was eye-opening, getting to know the culture some, the immaculateness everywhere, the Norwegian friendliness and their commitment to the environment. Murmansk, Russia was a forgettable industrial, gray, crumbling city. Two other Russian ports had to be omitted because of approaching storms and Regent did an excellent job explaining why this decision was made and happily substituted 3 additional Norwegian ports. The U.K ports were well chosen and interesting.
Embarkation was perfectly and efficiently handled.
