  1. TCat2, Thank you for posting the link. That is what was served on Explorer last month during our Baltic cruise.
  2. On a couple of recent Explorer cruises we noticed one of the evening shows included Tinikling, the Philippine national dance. We have enjoyed this being part of Krew Kapers for the past dozen or so years. I thought it was in poor taste and insensitive to the hard working crew. What’s next? Conclude show with “Impossible Dream”?
  3. Hambagahle, The champagne was Germain Champagne Reserve Brut. Sorry cannot post picture of label. The label does not match either champagne you mentioned. Thank you for your response.
  4. The champagne pour on our recent Explorer cruise was Germain. Anyone familiar with this champagne? The welcome champagne was Jacquart.
  5. Just off Explorer and safely home. Final thoughts- Entertainment improved with Paradis and World Beat (However, I find it disappointing the production show stole the Philippine line dance from Krew Kapers. What next, end with The Impossible Dream?) Agree with comment on Jacqui. Wow! She is amazing! Andy and Tammy are the best cruise director and social hostess team we have encountered. They work tirelessly with energy and enthusiasm. Captain Serena was delightful and engaging. The entire staff was friendly and attentive. We discovered the back areas of Compass Rose were less bright. Thanks for the helpful advice. Overall, the cruise was great and we will definitely return to Regent.
  6. I would like to add, we love cruising Regent. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive. Our suite is excellent and the ship is beautiful. However, our frustration is mostly with entertainment and destination department. The food overall has been very good. It is not subjective when medium rare beef tenderloin is served medium well in Chartreuse.
  7. Entertainment- Shockingly bad. First night was a lecture. Informative but entertaining? Second night Broadway singers. Females singers were strong, male voices weak. Third night was New Generation. High energy, but low rating on vocals but high rating on dancers. 4th night- Same lecturer singing with his friend, Blue Weaver? 5th night- movie...(really, no folk Russian dancers?) This is why we pay the big bucks!?! Dinners - Pacific Rim- excellent Compass Rose- food excellent, ambiance-Lighting was too bright for fine dining. Chartreuse- Appetizers & Service excellent. Beef dish entree was over cooked and inedible. Destination services- rating F In Gdansk all excursions returned at same time creating a huge line. Nice try having the band and officers to greet us, but why end all tours at the same time? These are early reviews from a platinum cruiser’s perspective but, so far, a bit disappointing.
  8. Who are the entertainers in lounge?
