I'm with you on this which is why we had no plans to go on Splendor until our Explorer cruise morphed into a Splendor cruise at no additional cost.

We are only looking forward to the outside...

Agree that you should become Silver when you board. You may want to write to Jason O'Keefe to verify as he is in charge of the Seven Seas Society in Miami.

While I understand that some people prefer speaking to Regent Air directly, I like the fact that our TA is in almost daily contact with them and know the right questions to ask and how to get things...

You do a great job - both for Regent and for those of us on CC. I didn't play the game because I'm not good at it. I appreciate the descriptions on the website but not the titles. My reasoning for...

Totally understandable. Just something to think about for the future. The main thing is enjoying every minute of your cruise!

Yes - we would book those flights. You will go through customs in Vancouver so it is only a matter of getting off of the plane and walking to another gate.

In terms of doing a deviation, I...

Not sure if you mean the "names" of the cruises which to me is so meaningless. If I saiid that I'm going on "INCA TREASURE & MAYAN TEMPLES" -- next year, unless you are on the cruise you would have...

Glad that others posted the ITA website since I forgot to post the link in my previous post. I totally understand why you would not want to fly out of Seattle from where you live. We can fly out of...

There has been no change but unless you are concierge or above transportation is provided if you arrive on the day of embarkation. Concierge and above includes the pre-cruise hotel and...

Explorer has a huge chandelier. Hanging from it may make cruising history:D

Pretty much agree with GOARMY! Excitement is not necessary in this case. We love Explorer and therefore expect to love Splendor. Our only cruises in 2019 and so far in 2020 are on Explorer and...

Since I'm not a fan of U.S. based airlines, if we were flying from SEA to Stockholm, we would deviate and fly either Lufthansa or British Airways.

It sounds as if you are not using a TA that regularly books Regent. I hope that you are getting on board credits and a rebate back on the cruise fare from your TA. Based on what you've said, you...

If you are in a concierge or above suite, your Regent transportation is included - both to the hotel from the airport and the hotel to the ship and then back to the airport.

Taxi's are plentiful...

We fly out of Vancouver a to and have gone to Miami. In my opinion, Regent gets too much money for an upgrade to Business Class. We take the air credit and book our own flights from Vancouver to...

Welome back to Regent and to the Regent board!

Yes - the Voyager and Mariner are sister ships but are quite different. The Mariner was built first and two years later came the Voyager. Some of...

It really isn't fair to compare Navigator to other ships of her size because they were built to be cruise ships while the former owners of Regent (two owners ago) decided to buy a hull that was never...

It is probably normal for there to be less excitement about Splendor than there was about Explorer (pretty much like the big hoopla about Oceania's Marina and the more subdued reaction to the Riviera...

Regent guarantees that everyone onboard that wants a specialty reservation gets one. You will be more likely to get a second reservation after you have used the ones that you booked already. Agree...

We are booked on the same sailing as cruiseluv and also booked it a while ago. Agree that the Splendor is pretty much the same as Explorer except for the change noted above and a change in the grand...

Our first Radisson ship was the Paul Gauguin. It was small and quite lovely -- it got us hooked on the product, but, when we went on the Voyager, it was an even better experience (larger ship -...

Some of the new ports sound interesting. Good to hear that Regent will still be doing pre and post cruise packages as they are quite enjoyable!

Yes - there are areas in the Caribbean that are very rough. My concern about the itinerary that you are looking at is that I vividly remember some pretty hefty storms that have run through areas on...

Good points cruiseluv. We find those suites very comfortable and have learned first hand not to be below several places on ships (including being below dining venues).

I want to mention priority...

There is colored lighting on the Voyager as well (since the refurbishment). We no longer sail on the Navigator due to the way it handles the sea, the lack of a forward lounge, the lack of larger...
