Overall: My second experience with Regent Cruises on different ship and much better than first. Was on Voyager last year and aft vibration problem was awful annoyance. This one was smooth ,even in rough weather. Overall,I would rate it very good to excellent in terms of cabins,service,food,excursions,entertainment..etc.

How were the dining options: Loved it. 5 different places to eat. Compass Rose, Signatures (required reservations) ,LaVeranda, Pool Grill, and Prime 7 which also required reservations but no extra expense and only 1 time in each.

How was the food: Excellent choices, food prepared well, and delicious. Loved the room service for breakfast which is not just continental like some ships. Many selections and delivered promptly.

How was the cabin: Spacious and very clean with large closets. The balcony has 2 chairs and table. Good sized bathroom with tub or large walk in shower (can chose), Comfortable king bed with luxury sheets. Total over 325 ft. The cabin was slightly larger on Voyager..

Onboard activities: Much to chose from Bingo, art lectures, shore lectures, pool, gym, you name it they had it.

Excursions included in price so you can pick and chose what you want. My husband took the more physical ones like sailing, horseback rides etc, while I choose island tours,art museums,etc. Some are more enjoyable depending on each island visited, the tour guide, type of bus, etc.

We sailed from Ft.Lauderdale and the embarkation was a nightmare with long waits due to computer problem at port. Regent changing to Miami next month.

First stop Key West, then Sea Day, on to Gran Turk, Tortola, Dominican Republic, St.Maarten. Supposed to go to St.Barts but bad weather forced us to spend 2 days in St.Maarten, then San Juan and Princess Cay.
