Regent Seven Seas Cruises Review

A Regent Seven Seas cruise represents a luxury vacation for people who prefer the finer things. Regent Seven Seas Cruises (RSSC) has been chosen as the world’s top-rated cruise line by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure magazine and is a leader in the six-star luxury market.

This line’s three all-suite vessels represent the best in high-end cruising without the formality: posh surroundings, personal service, delicious international gourmet cuisine, and plenty of space in which to enjoy it all.

Sailing to more than 300 ports around the world, Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ spacious ships are elegant, but not stuffy, radiating a casual country club vibe and an informal dress code that invites guests to dress smartly, but comfortably (only the longer itineraries have scheduled formal nights). While most passengers are wealthy travelers in their 50s and 60s on up, the shorter routes attract a broader demographic, with some younger couples and during summers and holidays, and even a few families in the mix when there are supervised activities offered for ages 5 plus.

RSSC keeps its elegant fleet in tip top shape with frequent refurbishments and enhancements to offer its discerning guests the best of everything.

Dining On Regent Seven Seas Cruises

Prime 7, steak and more.

Love surf & turf? Prime 7 is a contemporary take on a classic steak house that’s getting raves. You can also enjoy a lovely meal in the open-seating Compass Rose dining room or in two or three other venues where the fare is on par with top establishments on land. If you’d like to dine in, no problem at all, a steward will come to your suite and lay out a white tablecloth along with silverware and china, and serve you a full-course dinner from the restaurant menu.

Life On Board Regent Seven Seas Cruises

When not in port, the pace is mellow and relaxing. If the mood strikes, join ballroom dance classes, wine tastings, bridge and bingo games, and fascinating lectures by accomplished experts in various fields, from science to foreign affairs.

Each ship has a gym and a world renowned Canyon Ranch SpaClub, plus a golf driving net. Themed cruises from time to time are focused on fine food and wine (on Le Cordon Bleu cooking cruises, for instance, chefs trained in the Le Cordon Bleu cooking method hold workshops and host a special dinner) as well as photography, music, the arts, and more.

While conversation and cocktails are the entertainment of choice for many passengers, there’s also a piano bar and live music for dancing. Visit the casino or catch one of the production shows for a medley of musical hits and other classics.

All-Inclusive Cruises

The best part? The fares are all inclusive, covering spirits and wines, nonalcoholic beverages and tips, plus free shore excursions in every port and sometimes free airfare and hotel stays as well. RSSC offers luxury as it was meant to be.

    My main complaint with Regent is that they only let you eat in their signature restaurant (Prime 7) one time. They explain to you that this is so everybody gets a chance to eat there. However when you go by the entrance most nights it is empty. Prime 7 serves steaks so I guess they don’t think $9000 is enough for more than one steak.

    THEY NEVER MENTION THIS IN THEIR ADVERTISING!

    I want to alert all portential clients of Regent to NOT book any pre/post hotel arrangements with them – you will be grossly OVERCHARGED. I joined my parents on Voyager, and their travel agent said she could get a good deal on the hotel in Beijing I was to meet my parents as I was going 3 days ahead. I am very used to making my own travel arrangement(how hard is it to go on internet..). I wrongly assumed Regent would have a better rate as they book so many rooms in the hotel. How wrong I was. I prepaid $1550 for 4 nights, breakfast, transfer from airport to hotel, and then from Beijing to ship. When checking out I was erroneously given a bill for my stay. I said ‘oh no I’ve prepaid, it’s just my extras’. They said sorry, and gave me the extras bill. But then I looked at what they would have charged me at rack rate – 5500cyn which is $900!!!! This included breakfast. Ok, then add on a taxi(current rate about $25), add on a CAR AND DRIVER, not the coach I took with parents(current rate $100max). Hmmm, looks like Regent pocketed a 50% extra or $500. DO NOT make my mistake. Oh, and for customer service-it doesn’t exist, they had nothing constructive to say. Braindead
