Regent Has Made Us Believers by mikesweeney73

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Seven Seas Voyager

The biggest disappointment with this cruise was the cancellation of both Moroccan ports of call. Casablanca was important to our group of six (three couples). These ports were replaced with an additional At Sea day and a visit to Gibraltar. We may not have booked this cruise without the Moroccan ports of call in the itinerary. Overall we were impressed by the Regent experience. Good value -top tier service.

First Voyager of the Seas cruise in two years. Ship was in great shape and the crew was excited. Welcoming and fun. Plentiful entertainment and food; lots of fun if you were looking for it.
