Regent is the only major luxury line that is truly all-inclusive. The cruise fare covers, flights, shore excursions, pre and post hotel stays, gratuities, transfers and all alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
All staterooms are suites, most with private balconies and large bathrooms. Starting at over 300 square feet they are twice the size as some of the mainstream cruise ship staterooms.
Regent ships are luxurious but not stuffy – they have a party on every cruise where guests are invited to meet their neighbors.
Gratuities are included in the fare, so they are never expected by members of the staff.
Regent ships have some of the best specialty restaurants at sea and there is no charge for them.
The casino onboard are more refined like those in Monaco rather than the glitz of Vegas.
Regent Cruises are inviting to active, affluent, well-traveled couples ranging in age from the late thirties to retirees in search of world-class cuisine, unparalleled personal service, and an enriching, in-depth, destination-oriented experience.
Younger passengers may be bored by the low-key nightlife and slow pace of some tours. Some families come on board during summer and holiday periods, when Regent offers a limited array of kids' activities on select routes.
You get what you pay for and with everything from air to shore excursions included in the cruise fare, you should expect the price to reflect what you get.
Attire on Regent is elegant casual for most nights and semi-formal is optional on longer sailings.
