Review Summary

My first cruise on Regent Seven Seas: 28 days “Serene Sunsets” Vancouver,BC to Miami, including a week in Alaska and transit through the Panama Canal, Sep-Oct 2018. This was only my third cruise ever and my first with a “premium/luxury” line. My previous two cruises were on Holland America’s Amsterdam and Rotterdam— nice but not “luxury.” From beginning — the booking process through Regent Seven Seas— to end, the experience was excellent. I travel solo, and RSSC’s single traveler pricing makes them competitive with lower-cost lines. Transfers were handled well on both ends of the trip. I had booked a concierge suite so had an included pre-cruse night at a Vancouver hotel (Four Seasons Hotel — doesn’t get much better than that). The Mariner is a lovely ship and the couple of issues I had with my cabin during the course of the trip were fixed quickly (a sticky sliding glass door to the balcony, and the ventilation fan in the bathroom that lost its cover). Decor was nice (warm light neutrals with dark wood), and the layout worked nicely (more details below). Food was superb — really first rate — and service exemplary. Menu selections in Compass Rose were wide, with several dozen “available every day” options plus 4-5 choices for each course that varied every day, beautifully prepared and presented. Entertainment was fine — I’m not really a “shows” person, but definitely enjoyed the 6 shows I attended. The entertainment production team is young and talented and did a fine job. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the Mariner, so much so that I booked the 2020 “Navigate the World” cruise (131 days) while onboard, even securing the same cabin I occupied on this cruise.
