Here's how we would (and do) compare Regent to Oceania. The ship was lovely, our cabin was spacious, and the walk-in closet was more than sufficient. In addition, the service was very good, albeit not quite up to what we have come to expect on Oceania. The showroom and shows were every bit as good as Oceania. The entertainment director, Andy, was the best we have ever had and we met some really nice couples, whom we hope to hear from in the not too distant future. Now, the reason we will not go back to Regent any time soon. The food was inconsistent, ranging from usually just OK to downright it had to be sent back, and even after that, the replacement was only 50% good, starting with two lamb chops ordered medium-rare. one of us had overly salted meals, mostly in the main dining room, one of which was almost inedible, but she did not send it back because she was eating very little. She found other meals too salty, as well. Finally, in our favorite restaurant, the Italian, where we did not need reservations and where we ate 4 times, the 4th time the meal surprisingly was almost incredibly over-cooked. It seems the only restaurant of the four (including the main dining room) that could cook meat as ordered was Prime 7, the steak restaurant. Read Less

We took this transatlantic cruise from Lisbon to New York for two reasons. Our first cruise 16 years ago was on the Navigator so we wanted to revisit the ship. Our previous cruise was great and led us many years of wonderful cruising. The second reason was the timing which was great for our purposes. This was an unusually early fall transatlantic leaving in October 6th. We were suprised to find the ship was old and tired and I think needs to be retired. The cruise lacked activities that we normally have on transatlantic cruises such as bridge lessons and organized bridge games. The only real plus was the guest lecturer that was great, For the most part the food was good, especially in Compass Rose. The crew tried hard and most of them, but not all, had a great attitude. The worst part was the entertainment. The production numbers were amateurish and our local high school would do a much better job. We had two guest entertainers that were ok but not great. The band played mostly jazz music which is not really suitable for dancing and did not create a good atmosphere for the evening. I am not giving up on Regent and we will book another cruise on one of their other ships. The Navigator just isn’t for us. Read Less

We make spring crossings every year and decided to try the Explorer to see what it is like. Unfortunately, we booked a cat G suite which is very small, around 250 sq ft with only 24 inches of hanging space in the closet. I think this category was originally designed for single travelers, but couples were booked in all of them. They are still working out many problems left by the shipyard. A couple of major omissions compared to the rest of the fleet are the lack of a forward open deck to enjoy sailing in to ports and there is no rear lounge. The "Horizon" lounge is called Meridian and is located mid-ship. There is no rear entry to the Compass Rose so those with suites in the aft have to walk all the way to the forward lifts, go to deck 4 and walk a long way rearward to access the restaurant. It was particularly difficult for guests with mobility problems. The ship has a lot of wasted space and the decorations are too gaudy for our tastes and toe overall ship size is too large for us. The staff, as always is excellent and the food has generally been quite good. Many guests feel as we do and prefer the other ships to the Explorer, particularly the Navigator & Mariner. Read Less
