Repositioning cruise from NYC to Port Everglades. We're from the Tampa area. We bought our TPA-LGA flight from Princess EZ Air. Excellent price, and excellent flight, transfer and embarkation experiences. The Brooklyn port was one of the most efficient that we've ever experienced. The ship was great as always....our third time on Regal. The first three days were at sea. First day was a bit choppy, but really fun to watch the seas. The remainder of the cruise was dead calm! Notably good points: Ample sunbeds despite it being perfect weather and a full cruise. The Retreat area is always great. Buffet was very good. We're early risers, and wish they'd open prior to 5am. Crooners was wonderful. Eunice and Benny took great care of us. The international café was always a delight in the early mornings. Notably no so good points: MDR....Slow, disorganized service. We ordered wine by the bottle. One night, they served us someone else's wine, another night they lost our bottle. Wrong entree's served one night. We just lost trust in them. MUTS daytime entertainment. Old, rehashed stuff. Crazy Rich Asians (they played this back in January!) Sheryl Crow concert from 2002 (also played back in January), Cirque du Soleil played at least three times. There was a guy playing steel drums occasionally. He was all right. Disembarkation was the easiest ever. We had transfers to FLL airport. Our disembarking group was called, and we just walked right off. No lines, no nonsense. The 10 minute bus ride was great, too. In all, a really nice experience.

Still a great ship, but not the best overall experience

We're from the Tampa area. We bought our TPA-LGA flight from Princess EZ Air. Excellent price, and excellent flight, transfer and embarkation experiences. The Brooklyn port was one of the most efficient that we've ever experienced.

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MB
Nice mini-suite with completely covered balcony. Ample storage. Large couch with a coffee table and chair. Large desk. A dearth of electrical plugs, though.
