We originally booked a 16 night Tahiti to Lima, Peru cruise that included a 'Bucket List' stop at Easter Island. By the time we boarded in Papeete, we had added 2 more segments for a total of 47 nights, ending in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Friends were joining us on 2 segments, Lima to Rio, and they were first time Regent cruisers who had cruised about 10 times on other cruise lines. Other than 2 nights in a Concierge Suite, 45 nights were in category A, Penthouse Suites. With over 375 SF with tons of storage space, big desk, separate vanity, big walk-in closet and a butler, we were delighted with the accommodations. Suraj kept us well supplied with Canapes, wine, sodas, chips and made any restaurant reservation we desired. Cabin attendants Lorie and her assistant kept the cabin spotless. Having sailed with Regent over 200 days previously, we were not disappointed with the wonderful food. The menu selections were varied and did repeat some for all segments, but the Compass Rose meals were excellent. Signatures and Prime 7 were also very good to excellent, and we tried them every segment. The pool deck had great themed lunches and wonderful burgers every day. The Coffee Connections had the best coffees with buffet selections for morning and afternoon. Coffee and pastries were available during lectures and the staff did an outstanding job with teatime. Enrichment lectures mostly on sea days were of high quality (South American expert Terry Breen) and others on a variety of topics from sports to current events. Showtimes have really improved over the years, with the Jean Ann Ryan singers and dancers, and wonderful production numbers. Other shows were typical cruise ship variety so we skipped some. Ports too numerous to detail except we were delighted that we got to Easter Island and walked around with an excellant tour guide. In our experience, Regent always provides english-speaking, knowledgeable guides, and the 'included' tours were on a par with the few we paid extra for.

Cabin Review

Penthouse Suite
Cabin A 1111
Recently renovated with new drapes, sofas, carpeting, bedding. Original wall units and bedside tables were a little worn but not difficult to use drawers, etc. Bathrooms with the newer showers to replace older tubs are enjoyable and so much easier to use. They have kept some cabins with older tubs for those who prefer a 'good soak'. Walk-in closet are very spacious with lots of room to hang clothes, and drawer space in addition to those in the cabin wall units. Big TV, lots of movies available, etc. Very nice having wireless available in the cabin. Balcony about 80 sf, enjoyable both on sea days looking for sea life, and also in port.
