Our sixth cruise, amongst a variety of price and service providers. Regent is the best so far, and we look forward to another experience. Top notch across the board. From arrival to departure, they have it together. When weather blew us out of tendering in Taormina, Sicily, two hours or so later we were docked in Messina, the day continued as planned. No hassles, just results. My compliments to everyone on the ship.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
All dining areas provided great service, selection, and options. Wine provided with meals all was very good, we found little need to upgrade to available premium wines. Sommeliers all very friendly,but not pushy at all.


5 out of 5
They worked hard, good shows for such a small ship. Dedicated entertainers, friendly during the cruise. The crew put on the show the last night of entertainment, and it was really touching and a real surprise. They also had a very unique welcome back ceremony one afternoon.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Not sure, as there absolutely no children on board. But if there were, I suspect Regent would treat them with style and dignity. I will give them a five anyway.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
I would give them ten smiles if possible.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Public restrooms in the right spots, good accessibility to all sections of the ship. Smaller size helps a lot. In two ports, they replaced some wall coverings in public areas that looked pretty darn good still.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had a room with a tub shower combo; the tub took a good high step to get into and out of. OK for us, but maybe not for others. If mobility is an issue, get a cabin with a shower only.

Pros: Fabulous Crew

Cons: Had to Leave
