We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise aboard the Mariner. Our stateroom 1107 could not have been better. Very roomy and open. The balcony was perfect for the two of us. Our butler Bish, was charming and attentive. Being silver level and having the free wifi for the whole trip was a real plus. All of the included tours are enjoyable. My advice is to select your tours as early as possible. We were waitlisted on three and only one of those cleared for us to go.

From the time we boarded our flight until we touched down at the end of our trip, everything was well-organized and executed flawlessly.

We have sailed twice on Mariner and loved both experiences. The cabins are generous in size and well appointed. The size of the walk in cupboard and the bathroom will take your breath away. We enjoyed our Istanbul to Athens cruise as well as our Panama Canal cruise from Miami to Lima Peru. Regent Seven Seas is the only cruise line that we have tried that is fully all inclusive - air, cruise, shore excursions and alcoholic beverages. We shall definitely sail with them again soon.

Highly Recomment. Could not have been happier with ship and crew.

Regent did a great job. Our suite was lovely and spacious (Penthouse A). The service was outstanding. The food varied, but was better in the signature restaurants. Our only critique would be on some of the shore excursions. The level of the guides varied but there were a couple that were just bad. I know Regent contracts with local agencies but they need to insist on the best guides for their ships. It makes all the difference.

Great Cruise Line

Regent is the best Cruise Line we have ever traveled. On a Mediterranean trip the staff really took care of me. One day in the buffet lunch restaurant, I was walking with my cane in my right hand and my lunch plate in my left hand. I wanted to add a food item to my plate & I was in a clumsy position. One of the Regent staff saw what was happening and lunged at me to take my plate. It was both funny & wonderful, and a great example of how the staff gives their passengers great service.

I would recommend Regent Seven Seas Mariner, but would say that at least for our cruise, the overwhelming majority of passengers on the ship were 65 or older. Shore excursions were painfully slow and deliberate in their pace due to the age of the groups. So if you are in this age group, you will fit in like a glove, otherwise you may find it slow. Cuisine was excellent at all the onboard venues. Suite was as issues.

The ship was beautifully decorated, had great entertainment and was just the right size. We loved the ports and the excursions were very well planned and executed. The staff always knew our names and treated us as VIP's. Our one constructive comment concerns the service in the main dining room. The wine waiters were great - once you caught their attention. There either seemed to be shortage of them or they did not make a practice of scanning their patrons with their eyes frequently to see if someone needed something. Just a small matter that can be easily fixed with a little service training. One other comment - we did not like the "buffet" service when La Veranda was turned into the Italian restaurant at night. If I want a Caesar salad, I want it prepared right and served to me tossed at my table - I do not want to go to a salad bar and make it from scant ingredients. The service and atmosphere could be a lot better in making that a more enjoyable "Italian Restaurant".

Just the fact that its all paid for ahead of time and no hidden surprises at the end of the cruise is a big plus. I like that the ship is smaller in size with fewer passengers. It has all the events of a big ship so I felt very comfortable doing whatever I wanted to do. Being all inclusive it was great not having to worry about anything but having a great time onboard. Not having to tip at the end of the cruise was a plus because the staff truly wanted you to have a great cruise and would do anything you asked. I loved the included internet service because on other cruise lines I wouldn't buy the internet service. Same thing applies to the shore excursions I would always pick and choose on other cruise lines but here I would take an excursion at every port even my husband came with me which he rarely did before. I also liked that we could go to smaller places where the larger ships couldn't. It's small ship cruising for me from now on.

This was our second time on the Regent SS Mariner. Would certainly use this cruise line and ship again. As I told the cruise line in their evaluation, their people at all levels were outstanding and the accommodations and food services were outstanding. Suggestions for improvements were in three areas: excursion timing, specialty dining rooms and WiFi availability and quality. Excursions seem to be in the middle of the day, often not allowing lunch or time to explore the port town. It is very hard to get a second reservation in the two specialty dining rooms. The WiFi is at best adequate, and realistically worse than that. In this day and age where everybody has at least one wireless device, to limit the WiFi to one device per cabin at a time is so out of date. Also, the quality of access for the one device allowed is very sporadic, even in port. They need to seriously upgrade their wireless routers to match the level of their service that they seek to deliver in all their other areas.

Not usual Regent standard

By: Graham and Ann

Reviewed on: 26 Oct 2016

There were few decent "free" excursions.. They put us on 4 hr walking tours so I had to spend $900 purchasing excursions. One excursion which was meant to include lunch did not provide it. They gave a partial refund. It should have been a full refund as other tours of similar duration were free (but not available). Tender service very poor and slow. New waitstaff are poorly trained When phone reception for information they would tell us to look in the daily bulletin rather than provide it. Not usual standard of helpful service. I was going to book the May 22nd trip to the Med. next year and get the discount for booking onboard. We decided not to book. I informed the Cruise Specialist of this but he did not seem concerned and didn't even ask for my name to record my concerns. I think we will travel Seabourne. What's the point of paying more upfront for "free" excursions which are not available. Pay less for Seabourne then buy the excursions.

Itinerary was boring. Not enough to do as there was only one lecturer and few activities that were truly interesting. There is little to see besides poverty. The most interesting city Panama was not one of our stops. Would not recommend this trip. There was a lot of illness on the ship and my husband contracted the flu which made us both lose over a week of vacation. In addition, the medical costs were excessive and I would warn other clients about that. We were charged $350 each for two packages of Tamaflu which sells for $110 each in the US. The most of the medicine and the doctor visit was $1450...a bit high, no?

My husband and I just took my brother and sister-in-law on his "bucket list" trip--an Alaskan Cruise. He has a Stage 4 brain tumour and has wanted to take this trip for about 15 years. The staff of the Mariner heard about my brother's illness and upgraded his cabin to a Horizon View Suite with a butler. It set the tone for the whole trip. Having that extra room and having Shameer for whatever we needed was just the icing on the cake. It made the entire trip so much easier for him. We were able to order room service for most of our meals--much easier than going to the restaurants and the crowds and the noise are not good for him. Every staff member on the ship was very gracious and helpful. We rarely had to wait for anything that we needed. By the middle of the first day, everyone knew our name and our situation and did everything possible to make this trip so fantastic. We cannot thank you all enough. Major kudos to the Mariner and Regent Seven Seas!

Our cruise director, Lorraine Weimerskirch, was always on top of her game. Very approachable, helpful and entertaining, too. The "Daily Mariner" channel on the TV was a nice touch, highlighting the daily events on board and profiling various ship personnel. The lecture series offered by an Alaska expert was excellent.

Reviewed on: 28 Nov 2017

The Regent Seven Seas Cruises SS Mariner was an ideal ship for us. Large enough to be comfortable but not so large as to be a floating city (750 passengers). Our favorite places were dining at La Veranda outside to get sweeping views of wherever we were at. On cruise days we hung out outside of the Horizon Lounge, again at the rear of the ship, for shade and views of the open ocean. We were situated on Deck 7 near the middle of the ship and that minimized the pitching and rolling of the ship. The staff was very attentive perhaps too attentive for my taste but it was a very pleasant experience and it was fun exploring the various facilities and nooks and crannies of the ship. I'd definitely prefer smaller ships in the future with the Regent SS Mariner high on my list.

We booked a Horizon view suite. The cabin was spacious and the balcony was huge. Butler service, which was attentive. We didn't need unpacking or packing assistance, but we made use of other offers of service, including daily canapés before dinner, regular replenishment of our mini bar and the like. Unless you want more space there is no need to look at upgraded accommodations on Regent. The butler service is nice, for a single point of contact with all the ship's services, but one can just as easily ring up room service, housekeeping, reception or destination services with the same confidence. There are advantages to earlier booking for shore excursions and specialty dining, and a complimentary night's hotel stay before embarkation that come with higher booking classes, but they're not essential. The main dining room's galley is getting some much needed reconfiguration in her coming dry dock. That will alleviate the only shortcoming we experienced, inconsistency in dining.

Just getting on the ship was like being in a zoo - this needs a lot of improvement. However, the main reason for my "NO" is the quality of the food, which should always be one of the great pleasures of cruising. Our first meal was passable, but it went 'south' from then on. There was no consistency in any food venue that we could count on....Except, 'Sette Mare'! We ate here for our last three nights on the ship and wished that we had done it at the start. On our second day I had the TEXMEX lunch and I spent the next several hours in the toilet. One meal that I sent back was a halibut dish covered in mashed potatoes and then possibly broiled for a few minutes to make it look palatable. The bacon at breakfast was completely overdone so that it was served crumbled in little bits. Even the servers had trouble dealing with it. I could go on and on.

The food was the best I have ever had on a ship, however. The wait between courses at dinner was longer than reasonable, I thought, and wonder if there’s been a reduction in staff. Ballroom dancing is our anticipated activity on a cruise so we were disappointed with the “dance music” (more country & performance music out of the duo than waltz, foxtrot and tango) AND the limited schedule of music. The line is not catering to dancers, unfortunately. Perhaps when the Mariner comes out of dry dock there will be an improvement in the service - maybe pride of ship will have an effect?

Everything about this cruise was spectacular, from the lecturers to the dining room china. This is the second time I have sailed with Regent and they remain flawless. The staff are helpful without being intrusive. The food is delicious - I live in Seattle and know good seafood; the meals on the Mariner were top-notch. The ship has recently been renovated and the decor is elegant. I hated to leave.

OK, Nice ship, good staff, mediocre food, crummy furniture in the suite. We should have booked special dining before we boarded, our high end suit did not give us any preference for the special restaurants. Alaska was far too crowded to be enjoyable. Five ships 12,000 travellers in Ketchican

Regent Mariner post dry dock

By: BL

Reviewed on: 17 Jul 2018

The Mariner looks very nice after dry dock. I would cruise again on her, without hesitation. We were three to a cabin (Penthouse C Rm 830) and were very comfortable without any space constrictions. The bath/shower combo was difficult to get in and out of, but the shower worked very well. No complaints. I would cruise Regent again. I find the all-inclusive with excursions provides less stress (in comparison to Silversea and Crystal). The coffee bar 'starbucks' type bar is excellent. I love Prime 7. Compass Rose has hotel type food, but service is excellent. Staff on the ship overall excellent.

A pleasant experience! Booked 5 suites in a row on deck 10 for my family. Was disappointed that 3 of my tours were canceled. Regent's land operator was having trouble with their helicopters and were not flying. The ship made no effort to get another operator, but my son-in-law was able to go on the sled ride and also the crab feast by booking on his own at the pier. Why did the Seven Seas not make other plans when they knew they were not going to fly??? Very disappointed. The panning for gold was disappointing as well. Need to redo excursions.

This was our ninth cruise with Regent, so we obviously enjoy this cruise line. The Mariner was newly refurbished and was very nice. We particularly liked the enlarged Coffee Connection. We also like the way you can walk out from the Observation Lounge onto one of the side outer decks. We enjoyed having most of our meals in Compass Rose, unhurried and luxurious, although Chartreuse and Prime 7 were also great.

We loved cruising on the Mariner. It was our first cruise. Everything about the ship - crew, food, suites, service was spectacular and far surpassed our expectations. Every time we met other passengers who had cruised before we asked them to compare their other cruise lines with Regent and every person said there was no comparison. They told us to stick with Regent because we would not get the same experience with a larger ship. We our looking forward to planning another cruise with Regent.

So nice being on a smaller ship with a lot of attention to detail. Cabins are very nice size, and onboard amenities are great. Food and drinks were also very good. I would suggest they add a more casual spot for dinner. Sometimes you just want something more relaxed and simple. I also am not a fan of dress codes. I'm on vacation, and I am paying to be there, so I should be able to wear whatever I want. I can understand something as simple as "no shifts, no shoes, no service", but beyond that, dress codes on vacation seem antiquated...

Our cruise on the Mariner was wonderful. It is the perfect sized ship with lots to do but not lots of people. The service was stellar and the food was great.

The excursions we went on at each port we stopped at were amazing and allowed us to experience some of the many treasures and beauty of Alaska.

The ship was truly a luxurious floating hotel. The service & amenities were the finest. However, there was a problem accommodating large parties in some of the more popular restaurants. They only allowed 2 reservations for the entire trip. There should have been a way to reserve restaurants once on board or else keep some seating open for patrons who come early and ask for seating after a short wait.

I cannot imagine a better experience than the the 7 days at sea with the mariner. The ship is exceptional in every way. The crew was attentive, polite, and addressed every need. The boarding process was painless, the rooms were maintained to the highest standard, with ample room for luggage, closet space, bed and bathroom comforts, and first class amenities. The on board activities were ample and the evening shows of the highest caliber. The dining areas were spacious with superb food and beverage choices. We were sad to leave such a well maintained and operated ship with a crew that could not be better. Would recommend this ship to anyone who appreciate a grest curise experience.

This was our first time cruising on a Regent ship. We had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. It was beyond our expectations. Our suite was well appointed, spacious and comfortable and we splept well. The staff was very professional, friendly and always willing to do anything for us. The food, oh the food, was fantastic and we ate too much. We gained a little weight, but since we work out, we are almost back to normal. The excursions were very educational and interesting. We especially liked that the cost of the cruise was inclusive of all meals, drinks and activities so we didn't have to be cost conscious throughout the cruise.

Outstanding Alaskan Cruise!

By: MargoK

We loved the Seven Seas Mariner! The day of the cruise, we upgraded to a Penthouse Suite with butler service. Boy, was that the best! The cruise ship itself is beautiful. We were worried because we had taken smaller Windstar cruises and Ama Waterways river cruises before with less than half the people expected aboard the Mariner, but with the 12 decks, it was never crowded. The staff is outstanding, and once they know what you like, they don't hesitate to accommodate you in any way they can. They have lots of excursions to choose from, which is nice because we traveled with another couple and not everyone has the same taste. The food is exceptional, especially the Prime steakhouse. The onboard lecturer was very interesting, we took a tour of the galley, did a Connoisseur's Wine Luncheon and had a really great time. Will definitely sail with Regent again.

Regent has remodeled the Mariner and while it looks lovely it does have some problems.

By: randyo

Reviewed on: 09 Sep 2018

The mariner is an older ship and it shows in some places. The remodeling changed up some things like the bathrooms near the theater have only 2 urinals and one commode that is so small you can barely get into it. They also moved the Boutique where it is hard to find and much smaller on other ships with limited inventory. It doesn't even have room for a chair so someone could sit down to try on shoes. In the theater most of the live entertainment was done by the ships dancers. They did have a great singer onboard who did 2 performances. To fill in on a couple of nights they played a movie in the theatre. Two of the bars did have a local musician play for an hour before we left port, and they were fun. Food service the first 2 nights was not up to Regent standards, but the Maiter'ds on the ship took things in hand and got everything moving the right way. One other thought the Virtuoso tour was great fun with a private rail car with leather, swivel chairs plus food & drink.
