Thank very much for a fantastic recommendation with Regent Seven Seas. We have just returned from a Northern Europe cruise to Russia which was an believable experience.
The ship was stunning first impressions of this luxury vessel were excellent.
We enjoyed spending our onboard credit that we received as part of this offer on treatments in the Spa and of course the jewellery shop!
This was our first ever small cruise ship as we usually cruise with Celebrity holding 2000 passengers and above. The staff were very attentive and polite and with fewer people on board they knew us by our first name! I was very impressed when we went to the bar on the 2nd night and the bar man remembered what we had to drink on the first night and had it sitting waiting for us before we said what we wanted. Now that is what I call service.
The food on this ship was beautiful, the main restaurant Compass Rose was very classy indeed. My husband favourite meal in this restaurant was the Norwegian Salmon Fillet which was poached and mine was the Rib Eye and they cooked it exactly how I like it. We went for a larger table on the nights that we ate in here and met some brilliant characters from America, Canada and Australia.
We could of ate all day if we really wanted to as there was so many options to choose from but I decided to hold back as I needed to fit into my new outfits!
Our favourite excursions were the Russian Ballet it was beautiful. They danced so elegantly and told the story so well. The pieces of artwork in The Hermitage were breath taking, my husband is an inspiring artist and this was his highlight of Russia. The only down side of this trip was the time we spent in Russia one more night would have been great but I suppose it is one of those things. We will just have to go back again and do all the rest of the excursions we missed out on!
