Just off Navigator last week. We are moderately experienced cruisers (~24 total), though this is our first Regent since the old Radisson Diamond in 1997.

We enjoyed the cruise, especially the excellent service and staff, both in the cabins and in the dining venues. There are always some glitchy times in dining, and this was no exception, as Christmas Day simply overwhelmed the ship's ability to manage in Compass Rose. That was the only time, however. Service in Prime 7 was also topnotch, and the food there is better in every way than the other venues.

My problem was simply the ship itself. It's beyond its expiry date. Sometimes it seemed there was more paint than steel on its structure. The design and layout of this ship is really strange. There is no interior forward looking lounge at all -- everything faces to the rear. In fact the ship seems very claustrophobic to me -- everything looks inward, virtually nothing looks outward. Some of the passageways are too narrow for two people to pass. And I won't repeat the talk about the vibration and noise at the stern areas.

Cabin Review

Penthouse Suite

Roomier than most other ships, and an excellent bathroom. Walk in closet is a nice feature.
