Antarctica fabulous but Regent has declined

Loved seeing antarctica. we booked as former fans of regent after 5 previous trips. The voyager is a nice boat with fun circular pool bar where we have enjoyed meeting many friends on past trips. however, the boat is looking somewhat shabby and needs a rehab to put it back to 5 star status. while the staff people are great, they seemed stressed/training mode now, from what we observed (lack of ...

We are not cruise people but are intrepid trailers. To say we were delighted by the attention and care of every detail of our expedition would be a sore understatement.The ship was spectacular- every detail from the way the closets were laid out to the comfort and amenities of the common areas was super thoughtful and clever and luxurious in an understated, tasteful way. The down-to -earth ...

What We Really Liked * Butler service was outstanding * The Restaurant Dining Room waiters were excellent (most, but not all) * The activities host did an outstanding job with trivia, name that tune, ...

We are Platinum level Princess cruisers. We chose this cruise primarily for the itinerary which included a Land Tour to Machu Picchu followed by a cruise around Cape Horn and Antarctica. Unfortunately, that itinerary was in flux and cut back before and during the trip. We've written a long, detailed letter to Princess' Executive team. An abbreviated version follows, which I've called "The ...

Worst cruise I've ever been on

I have been on numerous cruises throughout the world, most of which I greatly enjoyed. This experience with Hurtigruten on a supposed 17 night Antarctica cruise was the worst vacation experience of my life. I found the food so bland as to be inedible by the third day, and in general I found the personnel, especially management, to be dismissive and unfriendly. The journey down the coast of ...

I have read travel reports, watched YouTube videos and perused articles about Hurtigruten for several years. When my wife and I decided on an Arctica trip to celebrate significant birthdays, Hurtigruten was an easy choice. Starting in Valparaiso, Chile, the enthusiasm and knowledge of the expedition crew ensured an interesting, informative and engaging range of activities, workshops and ...

Unorganized and disappointed

Hurtigruten has a long history of expedition cruising with the latest technology in their ships. Unfortunately that was their only highlight. The trip was very disorganized requiring you to use their app, however they don’t update the app frequently so you show up for something only to find it delayed for 3 hours. We had 4 days in Antarctica and that translated to a possible 8 landings or Zodiac ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

For me it was a once in a life time dream, which was especially dissapointing by the tour operator. I have choosen this tour with Hurtigruten because I made a very good experience on a two day tour in Norway. But as a tour operator for cruises it disappointed me nearly overall. A lot of promised things were not there. For example the underwater views on the big screen inside. There you only could ...

We chose this cruise to visit Antarctica and to travel on the latest hybrid ship. This was a very special experience. The ship, the whole crew, the expeditions and activities, the food all met and surpassed our expectations. I was travelling with my sister, both of us of pensionable age and we had a wonderful time. We learned a great deal from the lectures and enjoyed the shore excursions ...

We had an 18-day cruise from Valparaiso, Chile to Antarctica and back to Puerto Arenas. It took forever to get onto the ship and get into our cabin (436). Once we got in, things went well for the most part. The cabin was fine but there was a horrid odor in the hallway (sewage smell) off and on. Somedays it was barely noticeable; other days we held our noses and ran to our cabin. We reported it but ...
