I gave this "only" 4 stars since we missed three ports for various reasons. Sierra Leone because of Ebola which I can understand but changing two weeks before sailing and just adding an overnight is really poor planning. We missed Cape Verde because of a medical problem which I can completely understand but not wanting to spend the fuel to try and make the port is not acceptable since you pay a lot of money for Regent and its "Luxury goes Exploring" tagline. We crossed that ocean at 13-14 knots which is really slow so we could make Barbados on time and resupply provisions. Missing St. Bart's wasn't a big deal but after missing so much you would think they would try and make something happen like St Kitt's.
This was a three week crossing and was fabulous except for the missed stops. Food was fantastic, service was impeccable, and fellow cruisers fun to meet and interact with. Dinner was always fun because you never know who you will meet and what can be learned in conversation. Regent at its best.
