Took our first Regent cruise (a TA, lots of sea days), earlier this month. Just returned this past week. It was a 14-day cruise. Overall, it was very good. Embarkation was less chaotic than most, but still chaotic. We were advised prior to our cruise that the original embarkation time we had been given had been pushed back by an hour and a half because the Coast Guard had to inspect the ship. No worries. Nonetheless, when we arrived at the port, there was a huge mass of people and embarkation seemed to be at a standstill. We got through the process fairly quickly, though the long line of people on the gangway after we checked in and were told to embark was a bit daunting. Once on board, we immediately checked in with our muster station (we had already viewed the safety video on-line several times), and then we went to a buffet lunch at La Veranda (quite a beautiful place with gorgeous views), where we got to meet some fellow cruisers (all very friendly and excited for the journey), before finally heading to our cabin.

The Voyager, like most Regent ships, is an all-suites configuration. We were not disappointed in our veranda category suite, with its comfortable bathroom (separate tub and shower -- we only ever used the shower cabin, which is large and glass-enclosed, so no issues with the rest of the bathroom getting wet; also it was perfect for me to hang on to the grab bar with one hand and lather up using a washcloth with the other; I always felt safe); walk-in closet (our cruise consultant had said we would be able to keep our clothes, empty suitcases, and my wheelchair folded up here when not in use -- she was correct); spacious bedroom area (with cozy vanity area where I did my make-up every day); living room area with sofa, table (large enough for in-room dining); desk (over which the television -- all programming included -- is); and veranda. We used the veranda more on warm days. Once it began to rain, we looked out the sliding doors from the couch. It was an efficient use of space -- we never once tripped over anything.

I have a shellfish allergy, and received all menus (including specialty restaurant menus, when we would be eating at one of them) the day before. This made me realize they were going above and beyond for my safety. All restaurants (including specialty restaurants) are included. I liked the French restaurant best. DH liked the steakhouse best. TBH, the main dining room was usually excellent, though the menu could get repetitive. Some of the specials in the main dining room (Compass Rose) were excellent. They had a fantastic Angus beef empanada as an appetizer at lunch several times that was amazing. They always had great quality filet mignon. And simple things, such as consommé, they just nailed. Delicious.

Deluxe Suite

Veranda category suite. Spacious. Separate tub and shower. No noise issues. Perfect for a TA cruise.

Port Reviews


Beautiful! We had a terrific excursion with a friendly, knowledgeable driver who showed us so many great sights, all with a smile. It helped that we had great weather throughout as we explored the nooks and crannies of this wonderful island.

Ponta Delgada

It's a pretty place and the weather was ideal. We ended up on a Lagarto tour bus, an open-sided trolley that pipes in a pre-recorded explanation of what you are seeing in Portuguese and English. As there were no wheelchair accessible excursions provided by Regent and we could not find a cab easily, this was our best option.


We took a tour of Cadiz and it was awful. We noticed fellow passengers fell asleep on the bus during the tour. The guide was repetitive and seemed to lack basic knowledge. It ended early, so she had us take a lengthy "photo op" stop at a random place in order to ensure the excursion would return to the port at the correct time. Some passengers chose to return to the ship on their own at that point. Truly terrible.
