We chose this cruise because of an ACBL sponsored on-board duplicate bridge tournament and because it stopped at ports I had not been to previously.

This review is of the Regent Seven Seas Mariner in particular, a ship which should have been taken out of service and given a major upgrade. One should have a compelling reason to book on this ship while it is in this condition.

The toilets in our suite stopped working for several hours on a couple of days. This was not specific to our suite and, indeed, applied also to some of the public restrooms. On several other days our toilets (we had a suite with a full bath and half bath) would not flush immediately when activated and then might clear 15 or more minutes later. Not what should happen on a “luxury” cruise ship!

Cabin Review

Master Suite

If dependable toilets are important, then book another ship

Noise from a nearby ship’s fan (intake or out, couldn’t say) was so noisy we had to shout at each other on the balcony. Given the juxtaposition of these suites to the fans (port and starboard) these suites should be avoided. Also, except for the chairs at the table, the chairs and couch were uncomfortable and difficult for one of a certain age to get in and out of as they are very low.
