Review Summary

Regent is my favorite cruise line and I loved this cruise. It was nice to start and end in Miami but it was a little long at 24 days. I felt some small things about the service were a little”off”. Loved the lectures and learned a lot about a part of the world I knew little of. Love the small ship and our suite that was home for three weeks. Highly recommend this because it is like two Caribbean vacations as well as a cruise up the Amazon for about 1000 miles.

Embarkation

Nice to be able to get on the ship right away even if we had to wait in the public areas. They had a room for hand luggage but we were not told about it so we dragged everything to the restaurant.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

The food was excellent and I appreciated having some popular dishes available any day. Loved the Canyon Ranch selections but wish there were more choices for diabetics.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Service was good but I’ve sailed on this ship before and felt it wasn’t as good as before. Examples were getting sorbet after the entree or waiting a very long time for wine at dinner. Room stewards were fantastic. Shore excursions were nice but it was hard to know how much actual walking was necessary

Ship Quality

Felt guilty giving tips for photos of exotic animals that probably wouldn’t live due to their treatment, but did anyway and have amazing photos.

Manaus, Brazil

Enjoyed our guide on the Meeting of the Waters cruise but bought an item at the floating restaurant that did not make it to my bag when the clerk gave the other items to me even though I paid for it.

Parintins, Brazil

4 out of 5
Boi Bumba Folk show was fantastic but seats were terrible. Once I stood on the side I was able to see the wonderful show. The cast posed for photos afterwards and great shopping

Alter Do Chao, Brazil

4 out of 5
Not much of a stop but we did swim in the river where it is clean and somewhat safe. So now I can say I swam in the Amazon

Devils Island, French Guiana

4 out of 5
No organized excursions but we were able to walk around and it was helpful to have attended the lecture and use the map provided by the ship At

Bridgetown, Barbados

St. John's, Antigua

Catamaran Sunset Cruise was lovely but the extremely loud music on the way back was not.

Gustavia, St. Barthelemy Did not visit port

Waves too high for tenders so we went back to St Maarten. No excursions but good shopping and the ship did arrange a shuttle to go to the French side of the island.

Disembarkation
