Haven is worth the money, cruise I don’t think so. Ratings for Haven only.

Needed a two bedroom to travel with a snorer. The ship is huge. Food in the Haven was excellent. The Manhattan room was very good but didn’t return because the band was very very loud. The Burn the Floor show ...

Be prepared for the constant "pecking" at your wallet....

Overall, nice cruise-however very frustrating how they try to CONSTANTLY nickel and dime you to death. You have to pay extra for a "drink package"-yes-even water you have to pay for. You have to pay $12.95 per day ...

Great food and entertainment but sleazy practices

The food and entertainment was fantastic I really enjoyed most of my time on the cruise. One major flaw was the rampant upselling, I enjoy cruises for the all inclusive experience, I didn't feel like it was really ...

Not first class as advertised.

Regent Seven Seas markets its cruises as first class. In some ways it almost is but other parts are so bad that it ruined the good parts. This cruise line goes the cheapest route when it comes to airline travel and ...
