    Seven Seas Navigator - Upper Crust Alaska

    My wife and I have just returned from a cruise along the Alaskan coast on board Regent Seven Seas Navigator. A comprehensive review has been submitted on the review pages of this website.

    http://www.cruise.co.uk/cruise-revie..._review_35278/

    Seven Seas Navigator was the smallest cruise ship we have sailed on with only 460 passengers. It is extremely high quality and could easily be described as a small ship with a big heart. We found the experience particularly good - indeed, cruising as it should really be - with everything included and with no discernible compromise.

    However, to help illustrate the Seven Seas Navigator, and its Alaskan itinerary, I have have hopefully linked my full review to this forum and its ability to show photographs.

    Mendenhall Glacier is essentially a 'drive to' Glacier from the port of Juneau. There is an excellent visitor's centre and an approximate 45 minute walk from the car parks...




    Overall this was an excellent cruise and the perfect way to do Alaska. We were very impressed with regent Seven Seas, their inclusive ethos, quality of service and sheer enthusiasm of their staff which belies the old adage that service is never so good when gratuities are included.

    Of particular mention must be the Jean Ann Ryan Singers and Dancers, a ten strong production show supported by the eight piece Regent Signature Orchestra. Great shows, amazing professionalism and genuine friendly socialising with special best wishes to Dance Captain Olivia Marquis: definitely a future Cruise Director.

    Look forward to reading your review Richard. Pleased you enjoyed it.
    It seems to me that rudeness is the refuge of the incompetent

        I would like to make clear that the 'All Inclusive' nature of the Regent Seven seas cruises in no way mirrors that of other cruise lines, particularly when it comes to drinks.

        All alcohol brands are premium brands and champagne is freely available. On many occasions we enjoyed a pre-dinner Kir Royale which was made with champagne, not sparkling wine as happens on other lines.

        Neither have I witnessed, on any other cruise line, the free availability of Caviar and Champagne at breakfast on a Sunday...

              The ship certainly puts to bed the myth that staff service isn't so good when gratuities are either prepaid or included Judith.

              The staff were outstanding, particularly these two, one in reception...



              and the Barista in the Navigator Lounge...
