When we stayed in a PH suite on Mariner recently we did not find that there were enough electrical outlets (U.S.) and used our own power strip. While I know things changed during refurbishment, I...
Love reading reviews from people new to Regent...
Love reading reviews from people new to Regent and agree with most of what has been said by newbies. Unfortunately, some of us that have sailed Regent many times tend to start picking apart things. ...

I understand where you are coming from - we have had discussions in the past. However, most people like included excursions (don't get it but they do.) Agree that if we weren't paying for included...

In the U.S., there is a cancellation fee but when you book another cruise you receive a credit for that amount.

We did not book this very popular cruise. Originally the cruise was slated to be on...

It is amazing how much more popular that cruise is than the almost identical one that goes the other direction. Agree that it will likely be completely waitlisted soon and will probably remain that...

I'm not questioning GOARMY's experience but ours is a little different. On the 31 Regent cruises that we have done, the majority of the transportation has been with buses (more than one available if...

It is very possible that the ship cannot be sailing with passengers when they tfix the seals/doors as it may be a bigger project than we think. I know Regent could not replace sink/floor tiles on...

I suspect that this will not be an issue on Splendor and also assume that most issues on the Explorer will work well on Splendor.

I would book online at midnight. Good dining times can book up quickly (many of us book immediately when it opens.). Again you need booking numbers for all couples. Dining times start st 6:30 pm and...

I would love to be in the audience for that show!:D

The only decline that I see is due to the shortage of qualified crew members which is not necessarily the fault of the cruise lines. With more and more ships being built, getting crew members that...

Yes, Regent includes business class international air, excursions (most), transfers to and from the airport to the ship and a pre-cruise night at a hotel for passengers in concierge or above suites....

From your great post I can see why you and "Z" are such great friends. I'm sure that when you go on vacation, he will take care of your home and he'll have fun doing it!:evilsmile:

Z - amazing...
Curious as to why you think that it is pointless?...
Curious as to why you think that it is pointless? While I agree that Regent likely wants to know if they have sufficient people, they can still cancel while onboard (for most but not all Regent...

It is what it is. Kinda funny that NCL has it (will check it out when we do a preview cruise of their new ship next month). Just thinking about a "VIP restaurant" makes me shutter! Interesting...

Hmmm, do you remember when you were ordering in Spanish at one of our stops in Malaga and we ended up with a lot more food than expected. It was fun but still think that the Sangria that Daniella...

Yes tipping tour guides and/or drivers is expected (and recommended by Regent). I'll let others discuss the amounts or you can Google "tipping tour guides" and see what others tip. Note: We almost...

Okay - this is how it works. You pay for your Regent Choice excursion with your credit (and In my opinion it is completely worth it). Then, when you get onboard, if there is still availability on...

As mentioned previously onboard booking are automatically transferred to your TA (unless you ask them not to).

In terms of consolidators, we did see "covert pricing" on a website which Regent...

The age tends to skew older or younger depending upon the cruise. Summer vacations have a younger demographic but also have children. Shorter cruises also skew younger while longer cruises skew...

Oh - now I understand. Regent has done this in the past when they want to change a restaurant. Signatures used to be under the Le Cordon Blu umbrella and when the contract ended, it took a while to...

Confused - Regent changed the names of restaurants? Other than replacing Signatures with a different concept restaurant (Chartreuse), the names have remained the same for a long time (as far as I...

Thanks for the heads up ...... we won't be in Cartagena until 2020 so I have time to do research. Glad to hear that you are feeling better.

You should be able to have coffee made for you. I would check with Donald (F&B Dir.). In terms of the name, due to popular demand, The "Cafe" on Explorer is being renamed "Coffee Connection" (which...
