We were excited to take this cruise because we wanted to visit the Amazon.
Additionally friends had told us how wonderful Regent Cruise lines is
The shore trips were marginal and poorly executed. The guides were extremely inexperienced and lacked knowledge
The best bird sightings were at the zoo in Manaus. Not what we expected.
The food was barely average. It lacked creativity and the ingredients were sub-par. We were told that the Italian food was the chef’s interpretation of Italian recipes. Since the chef was German, the interpretation was far from true Italian cuisine. The seafood was “fishy” tasting and sauces were offered on all meats, mostly to disguise poor flavor.
Additionally the included wine selection was extremely poor and mostly 2018 red wines.
We have cruised many different cruise lines and can honestly say from what we have been told Regent did not perform up to normal standards
The specialty restaurants had inferior quality meat supplies. Very disappointing!
The staff made the only redeeming difference in what otherwise was a very dismal Cruise
We would not recommend Regent to anyone.
Clean and comfortable but on the small side and needed updating. Tired and worn.
