Maiden voyage of Explorer

By: Joseph & Mary

Reviewed on: 09 Aug 2016

The Explorer is a beautiful ship and we were glad to share the maiden voyage knowing that it couldn't possibly live up to all the hype over the past year and a half. First the positive. The food and service was the best and exceeded every other cruise. The entire staff was equally professional and made everyone feel special.. The ports chosen were also most interesting and a photographers delight. The ship handled the voyage without a sound of engine noise Nor pitching. Now the negatives. The three water transfers were not worthy of such a grand ship. Enough said. There was no central elevator or staircase and the saying on the ship was "You can't get there from here." The shower was poorly built and on the first night Mary was unable to open the sliding door, and would have trapped. The second night a slab of marble fell and narrowly missed my foot. All in all it was a great trip and all the faults will be cured before future sailings, I hope.

She has been billed as the most luxurious ship afloat and she lives up to every word. The accommodations in the suites are outstanding as are the finishes and service in the public spaces. The Compass Rose restaurant is fantastic. We had only 2 complaints that we noted and are certain they will be quickly addressed. The service in the new Pacific Rim was not up to par and the main course in Chartreuse was also sub-par.

"Refined elegance" My name for Explorer

By: MJ

Reviewed on: 08 Dec 2016

I find the attention to detail given to outfitting Explorer to be only matched by the amazing diversity of that detail. Everything from the extensive use of elegant moldings in every conceivable--and a few unexpected--places, to the heated mirror in the bathroom which literally "ate" the steam off, to the really sleep-Inducing beds, to wonderful meals that make you want to sleep, to the beautiful floor treatments--especially the marble inlays, to the collection of vases and objet d'arte in the large area approaching the Compass Rose dining room, to the choice of color in the Chartreuse dining room. This ship is a worthy addition to the Regent fleet that we have previously thought was as good as it gets. What will the next Regent ship look like? I cannot imagine! But it's going to be something to be enjoyed.

We have sailed with Regent many times and are gold members. The ship was beautiful but the service and quality of the food has definitely declined. The entertainment was amature. There was only one lounge with early evening entertainment; I sing better. Made onboard arrangement early in the trip for an October sailing which we told Jeannie to cancel. Either they should go back to previous management or charge considerably less.

Very disapointing

By: Swoop55

Reviewed on: 03 Jan 2017

Not up to 6 star rating. Food stretched too far and low quality. Elevators getting stuck. TV's not working properly. Broken pool lounges.This is a new ship. These things should not be happening. Entertainment sub standard especially the lounge trio which was horrible. Food not prepared to high standards. Had to send back dishes. They seem to be trying to squeeze every dollar out of the cruise while sacrificing quality. For a new person on this line they might be impressed but we have been cruising for 16 years back when it was Radison. We have noticed the down hill trend. As far as the travel agent is concerned; no complaints.

Far East Adventure

By: Toni

Reviewed on: 30 Mar 2017

The ship was beautiful and the food and service top of the line. The entertainment was also wonderful! I would have preferred smaller group tours as all are tours consisted of several bus loads of people. Many times we only went to places that could accommodate large groups. You don't get to see the local living with these large group tours. There were no bathrooms on the buses and public restrooms in China can be very dirty and not what we are used to. I came down with a bad cold and cough and feel it could have been due to being in such unsanitary conditions. I wish we had understood what the tour conditions would be as we would have booked more private tours and would have preferred not to be paying for "all inclusive" when we didn't enjoy them touring this way.

regent is my preferred cruise line and until the explorer came along, the voyager was my favorite cruise ship. the beauty & richness of the explorer blew me away. the staff is just as friendly & efficient as the other regent ships i have cruised on. regent does everything right and i do not have a single complaint. this was my first cruise alone & i appreciate that regent has a solo traveler program which offers many opportunities to meet other solo travelers. i also appreciate the "share" table option in all restaurants. it's a nice way to meet new people. the lectures and cooking demonstrations were great. but it was the culinary arts kitchen that made this trip unique. i participated in 2 of the offered classes and enjoyed cooking at sea. the evening entertainment was outstanding. john barron was the best cruise director i have ever experienced. the ship itself is a work of art and i spent much of my time exploring the ship & its beautiful art work.

The cruise ship's full package was tremendous. The food was terrific (5 star), the service was impeccable, and the ship was like a 5 star resort. The ship treated everyone as a person as opposed to a cattle car. They also handled the transfers from the airports and the hotel very well. The only disappointing part was the pre-cruise hotel, the Hotel Meiia Sarria in Barcelona. The room was a beat up, the dining room service was VERY slow, and the hotel is miles from any thing worth visiting in Barcelona.

The ship was absolutely gorgeous from the crystal chandelier in the main common area to the Murano glass on the ceiling of the Compass Rose Restaurant. Although I didn't shop, my traveling friend enjoyed the shops greatly. I didn't catch all of the shows since I was too busy eating late and/or gambling. However, the ones that I caught were very good and quite entertaining. The dancers and singers were very good. I hate to be mean but I've been on other cruises where it was somewhat apparent as to why the performers were on a cruise ship. On the Explorer, the dancers and singers were of Broadway caliber. The port excursions were quite diverse and very well administered by the excursion desk. I had late minute changes and they were quite helpful in getting me on the tours that I wanted.

We had a good time. We were surprised to see children on board. We liked the new menu format in Compass Rose, and our meals were excellent. Chartreuse and Pacific Rim were very good, although the service during our second visit to Chartreuse was very poor. Prime 7 had problems with service and food the night we were there. The design of The Verandah was definitely an improvement, and the food was very good. We found the wines poured were very good, and even discovered a couple of our favorites. Entertainment was good and John Barron, the cruise director, was excellent. Shore excursion time changes caused some inconvenience. The crew was in all instances excellent. From a personal perspective we didn't care for the extremely modern, and sometimes odd, artwork. We found the shops to have very expensive stock with nothing mid-range as on other Regent ships, particularly in the jewelry. We would recommend the ship, but would be happy on the other ships depending on itinerary.

The ship was beautiful and kept very clean. We found the ship cabin to be very comfortable, especially the large walk-in closet and 2 sinks in the bathroom. The food was very good, but not the top-rated cuisine I had expected. The main dining food was very good, but didn't compare to top restaurants. We really enjoyed Pacific Rim and were lucky enough to be able to eat there for a second time. Their food and service were excellent. Prime was very good, but their filet was not comparable to fine steak restaurants we normally eat at and the crab legs that came with the surf and turf were not impressive, we should have had the lobster tail as it looked excellent served to a nearby table. We didn't care for the food at Chartreuse and we thought their service was poor...they were not friendly at all (at lunch or dinner) which really surprised us. Walking the ship, we rarely saw people! No lines anywhere, including buffet lines or bars. Easy on/off at port with no lines either.

We loved our cabin on the explorer. The service was exemplary and always with a smile. However the ship creaked in our rooms whenever we were moving. The tour quality was very uneven. Some of the guides were terrible. The explanations of the tours given on TV were barely understandable due to a thick accent. The food was good but not as good as on Oceania. They lacked presentation of menu items representing foods of the regions we were traveling to. For example, Iceland is known for its Salmon and lamb.

We enjoyed the Regent Explorer very much. We have been on every ship in the fleet, starting with the Song of Flower 25 years ago. The Explorer is by far the most beautifully decorated even though some of the art work was a bit strange for my taste. The restaurants were excellent but very noisy as were most of the cocktail bars. The Compass Rose could have held it's own in Las Vegas, and I missed the quiet elegance of other Compass Rose dining rooms. The staff always seemed to be running at breakneck speed. I missed not having little chats with waiters, cabin stewards, etc. The speaker was awful. He might have known his material, but his two favorite words were "mm" and "uh". I had never been turned away from La Veranda (Setti Mara) at dinner time before. But it happened twice. Maybe reservations need to be introduced. I also think that water should be provided on long bus trips. I was shocked to be told that we could buy water if needed. Sometimes, change is NOT good.

The Exceptional Regent Seven Seas Explorer

By: Kathy

Reviewed on: 15 Dec 2017

We have totally loved the 2 times we have cruised on the Explorer. The beauty of the details in the ship is truly beyond belief from the golden circular stairway that welcomes you on board to the Versace place settings in the Compass Rose dining room. Chandeliers throughout the ship are works of art. The stage theater is well designed for all seats to have a good view of the excellent productions presented there. Top quality in beverages, meals, entertainment, activities and service is simply the norm. We LOVE this ship and the Regent cruise line.

Amazing Ship and Cruise Line!

Seven Seas Explorer is advertised as 6 star luxury and it truly stands up to this expectation! The ship has everything anyone could ever want, yet it caters to just 750 passengers! The service was absolutely amazing and thanks to the low passenger to crew ratio, we got to know the crew over the course of the cruise. The restaurants were fantastic and the shore excursions fascinating. Our suite was gorgeous and the views from our 14th deck balcony were incredible. Each and every crew member made sure we had a wonderful experience - and they succeeded magnificently! One of our favorite activities was learning how to make fresh pasta with Chef Kelly in the amazing Culinary Arts Kitchen! And the view from the kitchen - absolutely amazing! We are looking forward to our next cruise with Regent!

Gorgeous ship, engaged crew, good food. If the itinerary intrigues you and can't be found elsewhere, go for it. The main problem is communication. The website frustrates, and Regent info is contradictory and lacks details. Ex.: You'll be met at the airport (where?) and taken by motor coach to the hotel (motor coach, in Venice?). You may use your ship credit in the casino (no, you can't). When changing planes in Paris on the way home, you need not go through immigration (yes, you do). At Regent's direction we waited for 30 minutes for disembarkation instructions, until I asked and learned our group had been free to go all along. Other issues: local guides were good to outstanding, but only one had headsets, and on a couple of excursions it was very hard to hear. And a 1-hour layover in Paris was unrealistic. If we hadn't hired a meet-and-greet service, we'd have missed our connection. The upshot? "God is in the details," and at this price point I doubt I'd opt for Regent again.

First time on Regent. Our previous experience on cruise lines was Seabourn and SilverSeas. We were very impressed with the Explorer in terms of the design and overall experience. Equal to and in some cases better than our past experience on other lines.

Ship/Regent Review

By: Libby

Reviewed on: 30 Oct 2017

My review is mixed. Although the ship was lovely (room accommodations, restaurants, staff's desire to satisfy requests, and other amenities), there were numerous missteps along the way regarding "communications." First of all, the Regent website is in dire need of upgrading and fixing the many glitches one encounters. This is important since you make various reservations through the website, and then are forced to phone them to correct or even make a reservation. The firm's claim that business class air fare is included in the pricing is misleading if you choose to stay extra days (not on one of its excursions). We were forced to buy an extra business class ticket for the flight home. Unfortunately, the "free wifi" on the ship was essentially nonexistent as you could not connect to it easily. Finally, Regent is very parsimonious in relating information regarding embarking, disembarking, tours, etc. And, in fact, gives out incorrect information on some important issues.

First Time Traveller with Regent

I had mixed feelings about Regent Seven Seas. Some things were outstanding (layout of ship and on board activities, restaurants, staff) but other things were rather disappointing. Several of the excursions were extremely challenging to hear the guide either because of them being soft spoken or heavily accented but mainly because the vast majority of the tours didn't include the option for headsets. This would be such an easy fix that I was shocked at the amount of complaints which could have been eliminated. Also, some of the "shopping" opportunities were horrendous - really cheesy touristy overpriced venues which were included in the tours. Really surprised at some of these and would endeavor to make sure that future excursions didn't include that as it was a waste of valuable touring time.

Most comfortable. The suite and veranda were first rate; the best we have enjoyed in 32 cruises. Most meals were superb, with the exception of breakfast, where only a limited selection was available and the coffee was weak. The ship was clean and well appointed and the staff was very attentive. Tours were well organized.

We don't believe you can find a cruise ship with better service and food anywhere. Regent is the definition of of FIRST CLASS & ALL INCLUSIVE. They will do everything in their power to make sure you have a great cruise, including providing multiple excursions at each port. On our most recent cruise walking back to the ship my knee brace broke so I called the stewardess, who arrived quickly and took the brace down to the carpentry shop. I really didn't expect them to be able to fix it but it was repaired and delivered to me the next morning. All of the staff from stewards to waiters and many others do a good job of remembering our names and take VERY good care of us.

The decor is awesome. Our suite was perfect; plenty of drawers and closet space with an ample bathroom with double sinks, bath and shower. The bed was like a cloud.

Floating Resort

By: Teddy Bear

Reviewed on: 10 Jan 2018

The ship was not a ship to me. I think more money was spent on decorations than on construction. I paid for a balcony suite but was not able to use the balcony. The door had to be taped each night due to wind leakage. The ship did not seem to handle rough seas as well as other ships. In some areas it seemed as though they were disorganized. I am single (but paying for two), however, every morning Room Service would bring two cups for my morning coffee even though I told them every morning I was only one. I finally had to go to the Food and Beverage Manager to get this corrected. But I only got one chocolate every night. Dining Room service was slow especially if the table was singles. The card room was too small. We had to play in one of the restaurants. I think that Regent is cutting back. There was no Christmas gift (even though fares for Holiday cruise are always more). Instead we were told that money was being donated to a charity that none of us had even heard about.

Ups and Downs

By: Trouble

Reviewed on: 18 Jan 2018

The check in process was totally unorganized. The stateroom and the ship itself was beautiful. Some ports were not really all that picturesque. The main restaurant has an issue with hot and cold food. It is not fun to eat lukewarm food when it is supposed to be hot. The wine service is very spotty. There are quite a few wines that are included with meals, but it is like “pulling teeth” to get them to present more than one. The disembarking process was also unorganized. There was an event on the gangway, but they would not let us stay in the room and there was no place to sit in the lobby. So, by the time they finally let us disembark, some passengers were running late...leads to rude behavior.
