Review for Seven Seas Voyager to Middle East

We had some doubts after reading several reviews regarding the ship, especially the availability of good wines by the glass and the standard of service. However once on board we had no issue with the quality of wine, when asking for some other region of wine the staff were very obliging and delivered. The standard of service was exemplary apart from the shore excursion team who seemed to be ...

This was only our second cruise. Our first was with P&O and although this cruise was far more expensive, as they say, you get what you pay for. What was really impressive was the way embarkation, tours and disembarkation was managed, it was all very well organised. All the staff, without exception, were friendly and couldn't do enough to help. Being "all inclusive" it was really nice to ...

A point by point list of my impressions on my first cruise wth Regent. First off, Regent's Scan Design style of decor is not to my liking, which is a shame as it set the tone for my first impressions of the ship. However as I was lucky enough to get this cruise at an amazing price, my negative initial first impressions were offset by the quality of almost everything else that Regent is known ...

Dissappointing experience on Regent Seven Seas Mariner

Together with my wife, I purchased an upmarket Seven Seas Aft Suite on Regent Seven Seas Mariner. In summary: 1. With one exception, the crew were wonderful. 2. Compared to our experience on Princess and Viking vessels, the food was average and in particular, the salads were poor. 3. Unlike Sun Princess where we cruised for six weeks in the Master Suite at about the same cost as our ten day ...

Regent is losing it's luster

First Time Cruiser

We are long time Regent fans and it has been sad to see them losing so many of the qualities that made Regent so unique. On this summer trip from Istanbul to Athens, for reasons beyond their control, they had to change 4 days on a 10 day trip. Prior to departure several guests tried to cancel and get a refund because they had chosen the trip to go to Israel. Regent refused to refund their money ...

This was my first cruise with Regent May 2014. The Mariner was very well maintained, our suite was very nicely updated and very clean (We were told that the ship just had the rooms renovated - it showed). The bathroom was all tile and marble - we did not have a tub but a full shower with a marble bench which was very roomy for a ship. The service was very fine and understated - we really liked the ...

We had long talked about booking a cruise, and spent a lot of time researching the different options and itineraries. As we have stayed with Regent Hotels before and we had read a lot if good things about Regent Seven Seas, when we this cruise, the Red Sea Odyssey, from Istanbul to Dubai, we thought it was a good choice. The cruise was very expensive and was the most expensive holiday we have ever ...

Not what we expected and not what we paid for!

We sailed with Regent on Seven Seas Voyager from Istanbul to Dubai over 21 nights. We booked and paid for a concierge level cabin and selected cabin 741 from the deck plans as we felt that, being midship and not too high, it would be more stable than some other cabins. After an absolute comedy of errors involving our booking disappearing completely, amongst other things, we finally boarded at ...

We have just returned from a superb holiday on Seven Seas Voyager doing their Red Sea Odyssey and have to say the staff and service were again excellent, attentive and charming . We were treated royally. We were on Seven Seas Voyager in September and were very impressed that is why we have booked again so quickly. To summarise, there are some cruise lines that will do the least they can get away ...

Sadly, that's what this cruise turned out to be. We have cruised with Regent previously - our last cruise was from Mumbai to Bali in December 2012. That cruise rated a 9 out of a 10 for us. However, our cruise in 2013 from Istanbul to Dubai did not come close to living up to expectations. At best, the onboard experience was a 5. There were several very disappointing aspects to this cruise, ...
