Went on this cruise to celebrate our anniversary. First time on Regent. Had traveled on sister company, Oceania several times. We found the beds on Oceania more to our liking for firmness, but that is personal preference. Very good choice of restaurants. Because we were willing to share tables, we were able to dine in the specialty restaurants several times each. The main dining room was also attractive and well served. Waiters and wine stewards were well trained and friendly. Would not mind having the same crew on our next trip. The dining rooms did run out of grapefruits, blueberries and some other items, even though this was only a 2 week cruise. Booked another trans-Pacific cruise for the Navigator while on board Explorer to take advantage of some discounts. Cruise consultant needs some more training. Did not know much about the Navigator and did not quote the appropriate price. Our travel agent is fixing. Casino looked kind of dark and on most nights on this trip, not that much action. Spa is expensive and overpriced. Quality would have been good at half the price. Nice library, lots of small activities (sports, trivia, lectures, picture puzzles. Definitely an older crowd than any other line we have sailed.

Good sailing experience, very good service.

Cabin Review

Superior Suite
Cabin F2 936
This suite was good, but it was not superior. The bed was softer than I liked, but OK. The entrance hall and bathroom seemed to take up over 1/3 of the room. The distance between the end of the bed and the separation curtain was about 6 inches. The balcony was large and well maintained. Internet on the ship was, as usual, very slow.
