This was our first time on Regent. (Previous cruises were on Princess and Holland America).We are signed up for the 2024 WC on the Mariner and wanted to test out Regent, the ship and the suite on a shorter cruise before committing to the full WC. We were fortunate to be able to get the same suite for both cruises so it was an apples to apples comparison. The public areas of the ship are beautiful and never seemed crowded. We particularly enjoyed the coffee connection and library. There are two very comfortable public rooms for pre dinner entertainment and gatherings: the Observation Lounge with a gifted pianist (forward) and the Horizon Lounge (aft) with a nice singer and a talented flutist. We tried all the restaurants. Compass Rose (menu) and La Veranda (buffet) were consistently good. Prime 7, La Veranda and Chartreuse are other options. All were good but Chartreuse provide our best meal of the cruise. The excursions were a bit spotty. The one in Ensenada was cancelled so we just did an easy walk into town on the Malecon. The Cabo San Lucas Land End boat tour and Los Cabos bus tour was comprehensive and had the best guide we have ever had in an excursion. The Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta City Tours provided a good overview. The only complete disappointment was a visit to a local Resort in Manzanillo for a long afternoon of no shade and poor food.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Suite

The You Tube videos of the concierge cabins don’t do them justice. We were worried about the overall size of the suite and had specific concerns about the bathroom, separate sitting area which is curtained off and the balcony. All three were larger and more specious than we thought they would be. We had a tub shower combination which others have complained about but it worked well for us. We enjoyed sometimes using the top and other times the shower. Water pressure was good and the controls worked well. The furniture, bed, couch and deck chairs were ll comfortable. The curtained area was perfect for in room dining. The two separate spaces really helped for private time or when doing separate things like when one person was watching TV and the other reading. The lighting is also great with special spotlights for reading the bed. The air conditioning/heating system kept the temperature very well regulated.
