Seven Seas Voyager Cruise Review by daetchief
- Sail Date: December 2018
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Concierge Suite
The Voyager was everything we were expecting from Regent Seven Seas - having in the past cruised aboard Seven Seas Mariner and Explorer. It was very much appreciated that the Christmas decorations that decorated the common areas of the ship remained up and illuminated throughout the end of this New Years cruise. It extended the feeling of the cruise to encompass the feeling of both Christmas and New Years.
Being a 'Holiday Cruise' and a relatively short duration one at that, there were more than a few families cruising with children; from as young as 2-3 years to adolescence. I can't criticize Regent for selling the cabins to those families but I will scold a few of the 'Parents' for not living up to that Title. There were, too often, kids running around Compass Rose, Constellation Theater and even Prime7 and Chartreuse. Similar conduct at the Pool [Grill] or La Veranda was excusable - since that is where children are most appropriate. I'm pleased to say that some parents appeared to control their offspring and I don't recall ever seeing any kids in the Casino or Lounges.
The 'Stars' of the Cruise, as you would expect, were the Cruise Director / Social Hostess team of Andy and Tammy who seemed ever present at any and all events aboard, genuinely warm and receptive and made the voyage a dream come true. The Assistant Cruise Director Luci, the Gen Manager Devor and all the other Department Heads kept the ship and the ship's services operating flawlessly. One single concern / suggestion that was raised regarding a specific server in Compass Rose was resolved / implemented discretely by Restaurant Manager Catalin and remained flawless throughout the remainder of the cruise.
The nightly entertainment / production show cast was wonderful to experience and additionally a pleasure to socialize with. They are 12 individuals that work hard to appear to be a full Broadway Show Cast. Not to mention their being Beautiful both in appearance as well as personality. The Guest Comedian Bruce Smirnoff's humor was appropriate for the Baby-Boomer audience, maybe not so much for the children aboard - but they shouldn't have been in the theater anyway, but rather in bed.
Another excellent Regent cruise. Looking forward to the next one - not soon enough.

Belize CityThe guide was 'green' and didn't know the tour. The group got separated and people were confused. The Rum was Rum!View All 2,326 Belize City Cruise Port Reviews

ATV AdventureHad a great time on the ATVs. They appeared relatively safe - while still retaining that feeling that you could still kill yourself. I always wanted to ride one, often thought it would be fun to own one; now I know what it's like and I never need to buy one. [Guess I out grew the need]View All 105 ATV Adventure Reviews

Conch Train TourA very nice tour, by a very eloquent guide [Joe] and a perfect time of the day; mid-morning on a Sunday - before another larger Cruise Ship docked. Key West is a tourist town. But it is cultured civilization - after experiencing the other side of civilization in the Yucatan.View All 221 Conch Train Tour Reviews
MiamiAlthough we missed the pre-cruise hotel in Coral Gables due to weather related delays/routing we did have an exceptional post-cruise stay at the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne. Experienced Cuban Cuisine in South Beach and Spanish fare in New Havana.View All 2,395 Miami Cruise Port Reviews

RoatanNot taking advantage of any arranged excursions I can say there is nothing notable to do away from the cruise port's selections of shops and bars/grills. The area outside the gate is a hawker's lair that solicit passengers who depart for all manner of products or services. Beware. There was a need to acquire medication for chest congestion and a very competent pharmacy was located by walking to the right after leaving the port and walking for 7-10 minutes. [the equivalent of the town's business district] Although they didn't carry the name brand medicine requested, they were able to research the contents of it and provide a near identical substitute.View All 2,825 Roatan Cruise Port Reviews
