Review summary

Didn't enjoy the ship as much as I hoped. The ships crew was basically there and dutifully fulfilled every request, but wasn't happy about doing it. This was especially true of the Destinations desk. Had one of the desk people complain about the "drunk" women who was upset she missed her tour because it want completely documented on the schedule. I didn't think she was drunk, nor unreasonable.

Very well organized, raised expectations for the entire trip. Never out of sight of at lest one person from Regent, if you had questions.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Food was always good, never great. Limited to an odd schedule we never really caught on to, not friendly to late risers on a vacation.

The onboard production team while talented, were stiff and aloof. Meanwhile the local talent brought on were outstanding and engaging.

Not kids

Service and Staff

Had mixed experience with the staff. While several were friendly and engaging my, most were doing their job, but on their own time.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The SS Mariner is old and it shows. In Signatures, one of the reservation only restaurants the windows were dirty and poorly maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Cabin was roomy enough and I enjoyed the balconies ny, but it was showing its age with worn carpet and furniture, also high use knobs and latched were loose or showed damage around the area of engagement.
