Before we went we researched the cruise line, we had not sailed with Regent/ Radison for 10 years.  We were disturbed by comments of poor food, poor service, bad value for money, etc.  And yes this cruise ain't cheap, but it was damn good and an outstanding experience.  We chose it for the land excursions, Ephesus, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Nazareth, Pyramids, Luxor, Petra and Dubai which for me were the highlight.  But the food was outstanding in terms of choice, seasoning, taste and variety (my wife is a chef), breakfast choices were huge and dinner menus changed daily.  The galley tour was interesting, the galley was spotless.  The cabins were excellent and the little touches most appreciated.  The service was well up to that of a good 5 star hotel.  Everything was clean, there was always plenty to do.  We had 4 consecutive sea days and we did not get round to doing everything.  We enjoy a drink and the bar staff were just the best.  The entertainment was outstanding, we particularly like the Broadway style shows.  The Captain and officers were frequently seen on deck socialising with the guests which I thought was a good touch.  I could go on.

I do not understand what people have to complain about!
