Two years ago, my wife and I with three other couples enjoyed a GREAT cruise on this ship. Accordingly, another couple and ourselves chose to repeat our positive previous experience with this 16 day cruise. Spoiler Alert- Big big MISTAKE! Very little worked on this so called "Luxury Experience" . It is quite obvious that the "bean counters" at Regent have decided to squeeze every single ...

We have cruised for a number of years with different cruise lines but promised ourselves that one day we would try one of the supposed most luxurious cruise ships. After much research and saving we decided to try Regent Seven Seas Explorer and booked the Mexican Riviera to Panama Canal cruise.We flew to Los Angeles and were transferred to a 1st class hotel for the first night bit of a shock in the ...

This was our 3d cruise on Regent after a 7 year gap, having taken 2 river cruises, sailing cruise, and travelled independently in Europe and Asia. We enjoyed it and will probably take another Regent cruise as our next excursion aboard a ship. We didn't pick Regent as our first cruse, but rather made a yes-no decision to accompany friends who had booked on Regent. Once we had the Regent ...

The service is always great on Regent cruises but this particular cruise was the WORST that I have ever been on. It started with the interaction between Regent and the travel agency ( Vacations to-go) that we booked the cruise through. They never seemed to be on the same page and struggled to communicate effectively with one another and then with us; each company blaming the other for the ...

Yes, this is a beautiful ship. Cabins have loads of storage room, food is wonderful, and the drinks never stop flowing, Actually, the amount and quality of liquer available is incredible. Pre dinner cocktails are accompanied by appetizers, and that is shortly after 4:00PM tea time. so much foodi. BUT,shore excursions are not the highlight. FOr most ports, staying aboard is preferable. most ...

Yes, of course, a ship that was often praised. The shipping company claims to have the most luxurious ship. Accordingly, our expectations were high. In fact, the ship is exceptionally tasteful, high quality and equipped with lots of love for details. We were also very satisfied with the quality of the food in all Restaurants. With the exception of the Prime Seven, whereupon we canceled a second ...

Have been a Celebrity regular. My wife wanted to try Regent because she had heard so much about it and especially this new ship, the Explorer. Beautiful ship. Included tours very poor. 34+ people on a bus and not well organized or interesting. Some food good, some very poor (Worst Veal Marsala I have ever eaten). Certainly not worth the cost difference over Celebrity, Bar staff and servers very ...

The ship is very luxurious. However, it has many serious design and execution flaws. The upper deck in the theatre has very poor sight lines to the stage. The floor does not have enough fall. The seating on the lower deck between the aisles is too narrow to allow access to guests or waiters. For a muster station, it is dangerous. If you are on the aisle, it is fine, in the middle, it is ...

Service not what it should be and food often over-cooked but the cabins were the big issue. Some big closets, some giant suites with tiny closets. Brown water in tub, shower handles that fall off. Shower doors that shatter. Pieces of the wall that fall off. Rude, incompetent fitness center people, shore excursions issues, lousy house wines, whistling doorways. Quite a shock for ...
