We have always wanted to cruise through the Panama Canal. After looking at lots of options (and no longer paying college tuition for our youngest!) we decided to take a splurge trip and booked the Regent Mariner. We are 61 and 66 years old and have cruised on Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Lines, and Princess. This was our first luxury cruise line. We were told to be prepared to ...

We wanted to go through the Panama Canal. We chose this itinerary because we LOVE Regent - all inclusive, never have to swipe your card or take care of anything. Air arrangements included and taken care of. First class all the way, in shore excursions and transfer arrangements, included a pre-cruise stay at the Kimpton Epic hotel in downtown Miami. Mariner just got out of dry dock in early April, ...

WE chose this cruise to celebrate a special birthday and because we only had to fly one way! We flew to Barcelona and Regent put us up at the Hilton which was a very nice modern hotel. We only stayed one night and were taken to the ship which had come from a 3 week refurbishment in Marseilles. We had only sailed Regent once (on the Navigator) and we were not fond of that ship. The Mariner was ...

We sailed for 18 days from San Francisco to New York via the Panama Canal. Prior to the cruise we had a one day tour of Muir Woods and Sonoma, with lunch in Sonoma City - a lovely small town. Embarkation and disembarkation were the only disappointments, and Regent is not at fault. The 3rd party handler in San Francisco failed to provide transportation to the ship for the majority of ...

Regent has everything one would want in a cruise. It is an opportunity to meet wonderful people. Regent's tours are included and there is something for everyone whether you want an activity with lots of exercise or not. The public spaces are comfortable and inviting. The suites are all lovely and spacious.. The food is superb and no need to pay extra for anything. The drinks are all included. ...

We chose The Seven Seas Mariner as we had been on it for a Transatlantic.. We were just as pleased this time. Boarding the ship and departing the ship was smooth, and all employees greeted us like we were very special. Regents gave us a complimentary tour of Miami,FL. while waiting to board the ship. It was a great tour and we sure appreciated it rather than sitting around a terminal waiting to ...

We chose this Cruise to have a small ship experience through the Panama Canal. The staff could not have been more accommodating. They strove to make the guest happy. The dining in all venues was excellent. There were some service issues in the Compass Rose Restaurant. Not sure if it was insufficient staffing or training, however it was not the norm rather the exception. The cabin was ...

We chose this cruise for its itinerary. This was our 4th cruise on Regent, and it will be our last. Things started out badly when Regent sent out a notice that a yellow fever shot was mandatory to go on the cruise. This turned out to be totally false. The shots cost between $320 to $650 per couple, depending on where you could find the vaccine. Regent refused to take any responsibility for ...

We have sailed with Regent twice before, found it 6 star and hoped for the same but were sadly disappointed. Everything on board Mariner had a veneer of quality but not the depth. Apart from receiving a captain's broadcast at noon daily, no one actually saw him. Nor did ship's officers mingle or appear other than very briefly. We saw steak dishes rejected in the specialty steak restaurant twice! ...

Sailing again on the Regent Seven Seas Mariner last November 2014 , leaving from Miami till Los Angeles with as the mayor highlight, the Panama Canal crossing. This was a partly new segment for Regent and certain ports of call have been no big deal because accommodating cruise ships was very new for these ports, some of the free excursions have been not so interesting but there was yet not much ...
