Review Summary

ADEQUATE, BUT DID NOT MEET EXPECTATIONS. I HAVE CRUISED REGENTS FOUR TIMES AND THIS WAS THE VACATION I WISH I HADN'T TAKEN EXCEPT FOR THE SHORE EXCURSIONS. THIS WAS MY FIRST TIME VISITING THE PACIFIC COAST OF MEXICO AND WAS EXTREMELY NICE.

WE WERE SHOWN TO OUR CABIN BY ONE OF THE CREW ON LUGGAGE DUTY. WE BEGAN UNPACKING. ANOTHER CREW MEMBER CAME INTO THE CABIN AND TOLD US THE CABINS WERE NOT CLEARED FOR ACCESS YET. FRUSTRATING.

I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED THE CIGAR LOUNGE HAD BEEN CONVERTED INTO SOMETHING ELSE. ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF A CRUISE FOR ME IS THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A GOOD CIGAR WITH SOME EXCELLENT SINGLE MALT SCOTCH IN THE CIGAR LOUNGE. i AM SURE SOMEWHERE IN THE LITERATURE I COULD HAVE FIGURED OUT THERE WAS NO LONGER A CIGAR LOUNGE, BUT THERE WAS ONE THE LAST TIME I WAS ON THIS SHIP SO I WASN'T LOOKING TO VERIFY THERE WAS ONE THIS TIME. THE OTHER OPTION TURNED OUT TO BE A SMALL AREA ADJACENT TO THE POOL DECK BATHROOMS WITH THREE TABLES ACCOMMODATING FOUR PEOPLE EACH. THIS IS ALSO THE AREA THE LIVE MUSIC SET UP AND WAS ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY USED BY CIGARETTE SMOKERS. i EVENTUALLY FOUND AN AREA AT THE REAR OF THE SHIP OUTSIDE THE NAVIGATOR LOUNGE THAT WAS APPROXIMATELY 8 FEET BY 6 FEET WITH SEATING FOR 5 PEOPLE THAT ALLOWED CIGAR SMOKING. THAT WAS MUCH BETTER THAN THE POOL DECK, BUT EXPOSED TO THE ELEMENTS.

Ship Tip

I WOULD RECOMMEND A DIFFERENT SHIP. I WOULD ALSO RECOMMEND ADDITIONAL ATTENTION BE PAID TO THE SELECTION OF YOUR SPECIFIC CABIN. I AM SURE SOMEWHERE IN THE DETAILS I COULD HAVE KNOWN IT WAS A HANDICAPPED DESIGNED SUITE, BUT IT WASN'T OBVIOUS ENOUGH FOR ME TO AVOID MAKING THAT MISTAKE. IT RESULTED IN NO BATHTUB, JUST A SHOWER, AND NO COUNTER/STORAGE SPACE IN THE BATHROOM.
