I chose this cruise because of its itinerary. This was my first time on Regent. I usually do Princess. If you want to try Regent, start with another ship. The Navigator is old, small, has very little entertainment during the night or day and the decor is average at best. One of my biggest problem with this cruise line is their costs to book your hotel and airport transfers. They pay for your first night before the cruise, but obviously it has been figured into the cost already. If you want to stay additional nights, I strongly suggest that you book it yourself. They charged $419 per person for the additional night. Our room only cost about $300 a night for double occupancy. So by booking with Regent, I paid over twice as much for that second night. I had my daughter with me on this trip and even though she was staying in our suite during the cruise, I had asked for an additional room for her before cruise. They put her in our room on the sofa bed and charged an additional $769 to do so. So now this extra night has cost me $1,607. Apparently, a third person in a suite does not get a free room the night before. I was encouraged by Regent agent to book the room through them because they could not guarantee both nights would be in the same room if I did not. I ended up paying for my daughter to have her own hotel room for both nights and Regent would not refund me the $769 because it was not done 30 days prior. I did not realize there was only one hotel room until I arrived in Dublin. Long story short - I would have saved a lot of money if I had personally just booked two rooms for two nights and skipped on their "free" one night of hotel. The airport transfers are no better. They have a private driver pick you up at airport which is very nice but they forgot to notice that my daughter was on a different flight and then never picked her up. She took a cab for $56. Regent charged us $113 times 3 for airport transfers. It did include a ride on a bus from the hotel to ship but still very pricey. The positive things about this cruise were the staff and the food. Everyone that assisted us on the ship were top notch. The food was the best I have had on a cruise ship. Their one specialty restaurant was excellent but we could only get one night's reservation on a 12 night cruise. All alcohol is included with your cruise and they serve excellent choices of liquor, wine and beer. The downside is people can over drink when it is basically free. The excursions were also included and they were satisfactory. We ended up paying for premium tours 3 times but there are plenty of free ones. Be sure and book those early on and do not wait till right before the ship departs. The good tours fill up fast. Read Less

We put three cruises together starting in Dublin 7/18 and disembarking in Barcelona 9/1. The positive was the crew and service was excellent for the most part. The negative is extensive. The ship was not particularly stable with a good deal of pitching and rolling in calm to moderate seas. Vibrations at the stern were noticeable even on the 10th deck. Some people in cabins at the rear portion of the ship demanded new cabins. The food was mediocre for the most part. The signature Prime steak restaurant had to recook a medium rare filet on two occasions. Surprisingly there was little local food and wine as we cruised Scandinavia and Europe. Wines were focused on primarily US wines and frequently ran out without resupply. The ship docked most of the time a significant distance from the actual place we were visiting. Long bus rides were the standard and cabs back and forth were extremely expensive. Tours were clearly not designed with the guest in mind but for the convenience of the cruise line. Many times tours were scheduled when venues or cities being visited were not open. the maddening thing was there was adequate time to run the same tour a few hours later in the day without impacting the scheduled departure times. Many times the "free time" did not occur due to the guide not managing the tour properly. 75% of the guides were substandard compared to other guides in Europe and on river cruises. It was a very expensive experience with such a negative result. Many people with hundreds of cruising days on Regent were complaining about the lack of quality on the cruise as compared to their other experiences. Read Less

We just returned from the June 26, 2016, Journey To The Arctic cruise on Voyager. This was my first cruise with RSSC since 2009, and my husband's first time. Overall, we had a great cruise because of the fabulous itinerary. Greenland was amazing, and we are so glad we got to see it. However, for a cruise that cost us $34,000, we had too many issues and these need to be addressed by Regent - by the way, we filled out all the comment cards on the cruise and no one reached out to us. - The room was in poor shape and we had a broken tv remote and a broken DVD player. Really disappointing for an upscale cruise line. I know the ship is going into dry dock, but for this amount of money, we shouldn't have walked on to a ship that felt run down. - When we called reception to have these items repaired, they said someone would be right up. An hour later no one had come by, so we called again. They sent our stewardess (what was she supposed to do?). She hit the DVD player really hard twice and said, "Yup, it's broken". We told them to forget about repairing it. But then a maintenance guy showed up after bedtime. Very poorly handled. - Service around the ship was very off. In the bars and restaurants, either the wrong drinks were delivered to us, no drinks were delivered to us, or it took a long time for drinks to be delivered. One night in the dining room, we asked for cookies & cream ice cream (which was not on the menu that night, but had been the previous night). They told us that it wasn't available. But then it showed up on the menu the next night. Dining room servers seemed rushed and disconnected. This was not a luxury experience. - Shore excursion desk was very disorganized. They had a very poor grasp on what was happening. In Isafjordur, were given tour tickets for a tour time that didn't even exist (around 1pm). That morning around 9:45am, we were leaving the room for breakfast. We saw tour tickets on our door and noticed that the tour time was for 9:50am, I believe. We went to the desk to ask about the afternoon tour and they said that a mistake had been made and there was no afternoon tour. They seemed annoyed that we were late for this morning tour. We were rushed off the ship without getting any of our belongings, with shore ex staff shouting at us, and showed up to the waiting group about 10 minutes late. Shore ex staff also left two guests behind at Godefoss Waterfall and blamed them for missing the bus, when it was she and the tour guide who miscounted. Very poorly-handled. We are not complainers, and take things in stride, but this cruise was off. I doubt we will return to Regent after this experience. Crystal and Azamara provide a much better product for the money. We walked away from the trip feeling a little ripped-off and a bit disappointed. Read Less
