Nearly every aspect of our cruise was perfect. The Regent Air arrangements worked well for us. We paid the small deviation fee and enjoyed 4 perfect days in Rome on our own prior to the cruise. We loved the quick and personable check in, and were quickly enjoying a lovely lunch in La Veranda. If you are considering moving up to a luxury cruise this area of the ship is such an improvement, with white table cloth seating, drink service, and wonderful buffet service at lunch. This was nothing like the huge crush of people one usually experiences on check in day! Our champagne glasses were never empty. In short order the suites were available, and we had loads of hanging space and drawers in the walk-in closet, making unpacking a pleasure. The marble bathroom was lovely, but my husband was glad he's on the short side. The bathrooms that still have bathtubs are short on headspace, but we heard they are converting all the rooms to showers over time. Although we were concerned that the room was near the elevators, we never had a noise problem. The bed was like a cloud! The room sparkled and was well designed. I loved the built in vanity.

Dining and Entertainment

We were impressed with all our meals. We enjoyed most breakfasts as room service, as we often had early excursions. (It was 10 ports in 12 days, so quite intensive!) Room service was always prompt, and the food as good as it can be when it has to travel. One breakfast highlight was champagne and caviar and eggs benedict on one of our quiet mornings, all as table service up in La Veranda. We had gone up for a "light breakfast."
