I never thought that I would enjoy cruising. We went on a 3 day cruise years ago on Royal Caribbean to the Bahamas, and it was OK. We'd talked about going to Italy for some 15 years and, during a trip to Hawaii in 2009, I realized that I had a fear of driving around cliffs. So, I started looking at cruises around Italy in 2012 because I didn't think that I could drive the cliffs and really didn't know the terrain. I thought that a cruise would take us to a number of different places and that we could come back for a land vacation at another time. I found Regent. Geesh, what a cruise line. We started with Regent in 2012 and are going on our 4th cruise with them on Wednesday 10/21/2015. We did Monaco to Athens on Mariner in 2013 and had a blast. Regent is top of the line. Yes, there are minor hiccups sometimes anywhere you stay, however, I do not believe that anything compares to a Regent cruise. The food is awesome, the staff are always available and so helpful. Regent IS a port intensive cruise line, so I suggest picking a day or two (or several if cruising longer than 7 nights) of your cruise to just stay on board, eat, drink and relax. All rooms are suites, with the largest standard rooms of any cruise line, plus a balcony. Bathroom amenities include shower and tub, and the oh so wonderful L'Occitane shampoo, conditioner and lotion. We cruise in the Sept/Oct timeframe, after the crowds and heat of summer subsides. The weather for us has been perfect and we've had no crowds. We feel at home when we’re on the ship, and there is no comparison to having a base at each port for food, lodging, etc. Few decisions, coddled to death, fantastic food and drink, Regent can’t be beat. It’s also nice to see repeat staff from cruise to cruise, who know you. We keep in touch with several staff members, and it’s like having an extended family when we get to see them again. Read Less
