We're also posting about our itinerary -- from Istanbul to Jordan via Cairo -- over on a thread on the forums' Middle East Africa so please feel free to jump in there with questions or comments about the destinations. That link is: http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=1726339.
This is my first trip on Regent in 9 years so it's been awhile. I've since spent a good deal of time on other lines, such as Seabourn, Crystal, Hapag-Lloyd's Europa, Silversea, Windstar, Paul Gauguin, and luxury lite lines Azamara and Oceania, among others, so I sure am curious about whether how it stacks up against the rest.
So please, ask away, and weigh in as well with your own insights. We board next Wednesday so will answer questions Internet permitting! (And will follow up once home with any other answers I couldn't get to).
