Beautiful ship, friendly passengers, but short on consistent service

We traveled on this cruise with another couple but also met some delightful passengers during the trip. Embarkation was quick and easy. Our suite was lovely and spacious (Explorer Suite) but not set up according to ...

Nowhere near so good as they think they are

After two cruises on Seven Seas Navigator we are convinced that Regent are not so good as they think they are, and by no means offer 6 star luxury. On the positive side, the cabins, the selection of drinks, ...

Vastly overrated

We chose the cruise from Lisbon to Cape Town for the itinerary & because we wanted to try a supposed 6* cruise. Having stayed at some fabulous hotels we were hoping for similar standards on board. The ...

Lower than Expected Service

This was our 1st cruise with Regent Seven Seas on m/v Navigator and we were looking forward to an excellent time and service as it is classed as a 6* ship. The ship was luxurious, a very good suite with top class ...

The cruise that should have never been offered

This cruise was entitled "Sumptuous Safaris" and had it not been for the pre cruise safari, which was the highlight of the trip, it would have been an absolute disaster. On embarkation we were asked for our ...

Missed ports of call and opportunities!

Starting with a chaotic transfer from hotel to ship, this cruise was destined to disappoint with nonexistent shore support following hospitalisation resulting from an allergic reaction to a ship-provided meal and ...

Nothing is perfect, but loved it anyway.

Dubai to Cape Town via India, the Indian Ocean and East Coast of Africa. We visited some exotic places which are all intersting in their own way but not many you would want to return to. Seychelles stands out as ...

So sad to see something so wonderful go down the tubes.

From Dubai to Cape Town was our 4th cruise on Regent and our second on The Voyager with the last one being Asia in early 2014. What a difference a year and a half and a corporate take over makes. There is an ...
