Seward to Vancouver July 2011 by PaulS20

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Seven Seas Navigator / Destination: Alaska

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.

Circle Australia: Once in a lifetime adventure by jlhalldc

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Seven Seas Navigator

We had been looking to circumnavigate Australia for years and were delighted when we saw this itinerary on Regent. We'd seen others but they were always over the holidays and weren't keen to be away at that time. It was amazing to see the entire continent -- intriguing history, friendly people, amazing wildlife -- plus Bali and Papua New Guinea to boot. What's not to like? Navigator is a ship that gets a bad rap. This was our first cruise on Navigator (our other was on Voyager), and after reading reviews here, we were concerned. Yet needn't have been. Her size means she is easy to navigate (pun intended) and is conducive to meeting people. Folks invited us to dinner (a first for us) and we did the same. Made terrific friends from Germany, UK, Netherlands, Canada and USA. A real family feel -- including crew. For an older ship, she is in good shape and was recently given a bit of a face lift, which resolved some past issues -- I'm looking at you Brown Water. Yes, her stern vibrates, she has no forward viewing lounge and only one specialty restaurant. But none of this mattered once the cruise began. Our mid ship cabin didn't vibrate, we loved happy hour in Stars lounge and Compass Rose was terrific -- and had enough variety even for our long voyage. We love the high quality and all inclusive value Regent provides. The staff was friendly, efficient and ever present. Passenger/crew ratio seemed luxurious. Lecturers on board were entertaining as well as educational. Hugh Neighbour provided geo/political insights, Michael Scott provided wildlife and port specifics, and Mary Atkins provided Australian cultural details. All were excellent. Veteran cruise director Ray Solaire kept us entertained on sea days with games, cooking demos, a Super Bowl party, an Oscar viewing (both at breakfast) and other classes. The onboard entertainment in the theater was terrific -- equal to or better than ships much larger, particularly the production cast.

Regent Navigator by happytravler51

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Seven Seas Navigator

Was disappointed with the ports, not a lot on offer, very much a resort destination. The reality shatters the dream. But enjoyed our time on board, just wasn’t like our 1st experience.

Great French Polynesia Cruise by rpramuka

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Seven Seas Navigator / Destination: South Pacific

Great itinerary. The service on the ship was great. The food was great. The people were great. We will probably not cruse on the Navigator again unless the itinerary overcomes the lack of a forward observation lounge and the vibration and engine noise.

Wonderful service and treatment by entire crew and staff. Weather was so bad on east coast that we had to skip a port but accommodated by spending additional night in Boston. Great cruise. Quebec City was a highlight. by JamiePo

Highly recommend Regent Cruise line for all travels around the world. When return guests enter, they are welcomed with Champagne and cheers and a big "welcome" back.

Seasoned cruisers, first Regent....EXCELLENT by benaschak

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Seven Seas Navigator / Destination: Transatlantic

Regent cruises caters to folks who want a comfortable, no hassle, luxury cruise experience with fewer passengers on a smaller ocean liner. It was an amazing experience. You pay one price for shore excursions, specialty dining, beverage pkg, gratitudes. You may also include options such as air, hotel & transfers. I was impressed with shore excursions busses that accommodated 40 but only had 20 passengers on each bus.

Small and intimate ship with... by dano53

Sail date: /
Ship: Seven Seas Navigator

Small and intimate ship with a charming atmosphere. The ship is smaller than I thought but I never found it crowded. Our cabin was comfy and the staff took very good care pampering us. The food is plentiful and prepared with great skill Service at the restaurants was amazing always trying to make you feel special. I really enjoyed the shows good choice of entertainers the band and the Navigator Production Company outstanding. So many activities to choose from you can stay as busy as you like Great way to meet new friends participating The shore excursions were plentiful and hard to make up your mind as to which one was right for you This was my second cruise with Regent and not my last

Amazed by the Amazon by cat55

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Seven Seas Navigator / Destination: South America

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.

Surprisingly West Coast Antient Ruins by MarkDances

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Seven Seas Navigator / Destination: Caribbean

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
Ship: Seven Seas Navigator / Destination: World Cruise

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.

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Seven Seas Navigator / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

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)
Ship: Seven Seas Navigator / Destination: Bermuda

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
Ship: Seven Seas Navigator / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

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.
