Nowhere near so good as they think they are

Review for Seven Seas Navigator to Africa

After two cruises on Seven Seas Navigator we are convinced that Regent are not so good as they think they are, and by no means offer 6 star luxury. On the positive side, the cabins, the selection of drinks, especially wine, afternoon tea, and the putting green are all very good. The pianist was OK, but we warmed to her and enjoyed her quizzes. Highlight of the cruise was a concert given by a ...

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly- a very upscale nursing home experience

The Navigator reminds me of an aging movie star - still very lovely, but showing her age in places and finding it very difficult to compete with some of the younger offerings despite extensive cosmetic refurbishment. We were a group of 10 ranging in age from 59-72, and all have cruised before. We generally cruise with Oceania. Our satisfaction with Oceania's offerings factored in our decision ...

We have been on Regent before and expected to spend our 30th Wedding Anniversary and retirement celebration seeing Africa in style. Couldn't have been more disappointed!! Missed ports due to weather we were never warned about, rough seas, too many sea days, mediocre food, very expensive and too many rude staff members, made this the cruise from hell! The cabins are nice, Prime 7 is good but you ...

We were going to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and my wife's birthday. Also a bucket list item to africa. We were told and read that regent was the "gold standard" for cruise lines. The cost was over the top but decided to go based on above recommendations. First,confusion by shore staff on both transfers from embarkation hotel to ship and back to hotel at conclusion of sailing. ...

This was our 1st cruise with Regent Seven Seas on m/v Navigator and we were looking forward to an excellent time and service as it is classed as a 6* ship. The ship was luxurious, a very good suite with top class bedding. The staff kept the suite to an extremely high standard. The food in the Compass Rose restaurant was also excellent, however, their Prime 7 flagship restaurant was ...

This cruise was entitled "Sumptuous Safaris" and had it not been for the pre cruise safari, which was the highlight of the trip, it would have been an absolute disaster. On embarkation we were asked for our "yellow fever cards", which we didn't have and had not been requested to have by Regent. We were told that we should contact our GP and get copies emailed to us, and if we didn't we may not ...

Missed ports of call and opportunities!

Starting with a chaotic transfer from hotel to ship, this cruise was destined to disappoint with nonexistent shore support following hospitalisation resulting from an allergic reaction to a ship-provided meal and cancelled ports of call (3 of 7) said to result from the ship being prevented from leaving ports - including the first port of departure - due to adverse weather! Restaurant dining was ...

We have so far cruised with Regent Seven Seas 128 days in total, round South America (highly recommended), from Bali, from Cape Town. After having done two world cruises with different cruise lines, as well as numerous shorter voyages in various places, we decided the RSSC is the only cruise line for us, for many reasons. Luxury, yes, but also good value: you pay well in advance but then there ...

The reason for choosing the Regent Safaris and Jewels cruise was its post-cruise trip to Cambodia. There are many other cruise lines that offer a similar trip to Africa and Asia, but the deciding factor was the post-cruise trip to Cambodia. We followed all the “travel checklist” instructions in Regent's “Cruise Vacation Document” and “Angkor Wat Document” sent to us by Regent before the ...

We did our very first cruise on Regent when it was known as Radisson. We did about 7 cruises with them and loved every minute of every cruise. It has been 5 years since we have sailed on the Mariner, and unfortunately, we have to say it just wasn't the same. The cabin was beautiful and the ship and most of the staff great. However, it was sort of obvious that they are cutting some ...
