relaxing Panama Canal cruise by dipad

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our 3rd visit through the Panama Canal. Enjoyed it everytime. My husband says the engineering is amazing indeed. On board, we loved the delicious meals, especially the seafood. The delightful atmosphere and scrumptious teas every day were delightful. Staff and service were efficient and pleasant. Excursions were good, Frenchman's Cove in Port Antonia was awesome. The best beach and swimming I'v experienced in quite a while. Was a highlight for me.

An okay Cruise by jww5531nc

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Prime 7 had excellent food and service. Compass Rose had very good food but spotty service. Sette Mare had very good food and okay service. Missed two ports-Guatemala because of volcano disruption and Nicaragua because of civil unrest. Regent was able to add a new port visit in Costa Rica which was excellent. The other port in Costa Rico and the one in Jamaica had at best fair excursions. There was only one lecturer on board and his talks were okay. The Panama transit was the highlight. State room service was very good. The entertainment was also very good. Would not come back to New York City. Traffic and road construction were horrible. Miami is a much better port.

LESS THAN EXPECTED by cdrsix

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.

Fantastic month on the water by jimbob44f

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Regent Seven Seas Navigator is a nice ship, the food is fantastic, the service is better than I have seen on any of our other 16 Cruises. That said, the ship does have a few flaws depending on where you are located you can have a rough ride because of shuttering and you will not get in the amount of dancing you desire if that is one of the things you do on a cruise. I know its not a big thing for most people, it just happens to be OUR thing and this ship is lacking in that regard.

Excellent Staff by jww5531nc

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The pre-cruise safari in Shamwari Game Reserve was excellent: game drives, lodging and meals.

RSSC staff were also excellent both in Stateroom service and in the dining rooms. Tours varied by both who you had as a guide and where you were. Both South Africa and Namibia were very good to excellent. All of the other tours in Western Africa varied from terrible to good. On one tour the AC did not work on the bus for the entire 7 hours with temperatures in the bus probably over 100 degrees.

Tours in the Caribbean varied by island, though it seemed that those on the islands that were still part of France were better: Guides and buses.

Entertainment again was varied: Loved the NCL shows and most of the solo entertainers. Sometimes we did not make it to the shows because of the schedule on that given day.

The lecturer on the social and economic conditions of west African countries was excellent. The marine life lecturer was good. The rest were poor.

Yummy

Nice Cruise Line, Wrong Ship by jimwendling

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We originally signed up for a "Greek Islands" trip ending in Istanbul.  While we agree it was wise to not include Istanbul as a destination due to security concerns, we were very disappointed that the majority of destinations we really were interested in were eliminated as well (Mykonos, Santorini, Ephesus, etc) and replaced with destinations that were ok but not the reason we selected this cruise in the first place.  That aside, here's our rating of the cruise, ship, staffing, etc. 

 

The ship Navigator is the smallest in the RSSC line up and smaller than most any other of the competition.  While this means about 400 passengers rather than a horde of thousands, it comes with a price.  In our view, there was not enough room in the public areas for 400 guests.  For example, the small pool deck area resulted in all the lounge chairs being quickly taken up.  The smoking area on the pool deck was not really isolated and therefore smoke permeated the already limited non smoking area and made it uncomfortable for enjoying relaxation.  There were no deck areas on the  sides of the ship where there access for walking or lounging in chairs.  You had to be in the pool area or the running track above it to have a place to lounge.  The food was very good and abundant.  Due once again to space limitations it felt crowded in the Veranda dining area at breakfast or dinner.  Lunch on board was not a viable option because there were excursions every day but one and the excursion timing meant it was not possible to have lunch on board and still enjoy your time ashore.  On the subject of excursions, they were pretty well done with professional, experienced, knowledgeable local guides.  It would have been better to allow more time for exploring on your own or shopping before the excursion returned to the ship (especially Venice and the Murano glass factory tour).  We would like to have more than one day at sea rather than a port 7 days in a row.

The room was spacious and well laid out.  Large walk-in closet, large bathroom with plenty of storage area, nice bed, nice deck.  My wife was excited about having a bath tub, that is until she ran the bath water to find it a rusty brown color--complete turn off.  We think that's a sign of the ship's age and need for a redo or replacement.  The staff were uniformly friendly and excellent.  Very well trained and attentive.  Embarkation and disembarkation were smooth and easy. 

We would select a different RSSC ship next time.

See pros and cons. Note that weather was quite cool, a parka was essential to spend time on deck. It was never warm enough for the pool, so chair competition was not an issue.

Surprisingly West Coast Antient Ruins by MarkDances

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Manzanillo is at the same latitude as Hawaii and has abundant rainfall. It has become the major container port for Mexico (gateway to Guadalajara and Mexico City). It produces huge yields of lime & coconuts. Good school and University systems. In 1992 a shopping center was under construction and they found a huge (100+ Acre) ancient city complex. Not yet registered as a UNESCO site La Campana is really cool.

World experience by huuontour

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Positive: Crew of Navigator is extremely helpful, courteous and charming. Chef Michael is a Gem!! He loves fresh fish - his Sushi and Miso seared seabass are a dream! Cruise director Jamie Logan and his assistant/wife are great in a 24/7/5months constant effort to please!!!! Negativ: excursions always cut short if ship late for some reason - shortest city tour was 15 minutes and could have easily swopped with harbour tour, which understandably has its own scheduling. Saying that excursion department on ship totally inflexible due to restraints from head office Miami. Tab water always brown, use bottled water for toothbrush and avoid laundry.

My favorite cruise line and wonderful trip by cat55

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Wonderful cruise and Regent Seven Seas is my favorite with everything included. It is so nice not to worry about a thing as they take such good care of you. This is my first cruise on the Navigator and I loved the smaller ship size.

First cruise by missymssy

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

This was my very first time cruising, so i didn't know what to expect. I am 49, and I took my 19 year old niece. Obviosly youngest on Regent. While we enjoyed dressing up for dinner a few times, we didn't like feeling obligated to. Well, if you want to leave cabin that is... 

 

We had the first night at hotel in Miami. That was extremely disorganized. Even though Regent knew of an embarkation time change weeks before and notified me, they aparently didnt tell anyone at the hotel. Or the staff just didnt know. The Epic hotel, imo, was a complete disaster. On the plus side, transport both from airport and from hotel to port was great. Very organized.

 

The ship itself definitely not worth the amount we paid. I did read other reviews prior, so perhaps Navigator isn"t a fair representation of Regent. If not, it should be much cheaper than the other 3 in Regent's fleet. Since it was nicely refurbished, it looked really great. But old. There was a lot of vibration and noise!  I dont think all elevators were working simultaneously at any time the entire cruise. So you can imagine the wait times! And they actually use this ship for world cruises? I had my fill after only 11 nights. Definitely not a luxury experience. 

 

Service was excellant, everywhere. All waitstaff, bar staff, cabin steward.... They all go out of their way for you.

 

Any shows or entertainment were definitely geared to a much older crowd. Not an issue though. The crew gave a great performance on the last night. Not being a drinker I really can't comment on lounges or nightlife.

 

The food was good, but not the best. Certainly not what I was expecting. Room service menu was poor. But if it is during dinner, you can order from Compass Rose. 

 

We were both very pleased with the shore excursions. Both the quality and the way Regent handled them-very organized. Even when there were time changes. Towels and bottled water as you leave ship. But then, this is all what you should expect for a luxury cruise, right?

 

Overall, I would probably do Regent cruise again only if it were a different ship. Or a LOT cheaper! Otherwise I would go with a more casual line. I booked another cruise for 2019, but not with Regent.

Wonderful Cruise by cruisinjoan

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This cruise, although pricey, was a wonderful way to see Africa.  It was worth every penny for the trip of a lifetime.  An all-inclusive cruise may be on the horizon again in my future.  It was so nice not having to be charged for anything outside of going to the shops or the spa.  The room was spacious with a sitting room and a balcony.  Our cabin stewardess was the best.  and the food...filet mignon and lobster tail every night of the week if you wanted it.  The only frown I would bestow would be the entertainment.  It was so-so, but they did have wonderful lecturers on board from the Smithsonian.  They also had free laundromats on board to be able to wash your clothes for such a long trip.  Would I cruise with Regent again - absolutely.
