    Soujourn Deck Repairs - Update

    Deck is squishy in several spots. Lots of large potted plant covering some areas. Glad it’s not crowded near the pool because it would be inconvenient. Cruise has been great so far though.

    Soujourn Deck Repairs - Update

    We board on Friday and if I get the opportunity I will post about the condition of the deck.

    Sojourn Pool Deck

    Not this will anyone, but a recent post dry dock Regent Mariner cruise a lot of time was spent be the staff repairing the deck which also seemed to be warping in a few spots.

    Alaska Salmon

    Well that is a disappointment

    Local seafood onboard?

    I asked on an earlier thread and did not get an answer; Does anyone know if they will cook salmon you catch in Alaska on the ship?

    Alaska Salmon

    If you go fishing in Alaska while on your cruise, will the dining room cook up you catch?
  7. We were on the same cruise and though it is hard to put a finger on the exact cause it was not up to the standard we experienced on our prior Regent cruise. Service seemed perfunctory and forced. Everything was just kinda of OK and for the $ things should just be OK. It was enough for us to switch our upcoming Alaska cruise to Seabourn, which we will be on for the second time.
  8. Looking at Northbound Alaska and on the starboard side they only have cabins 915 and 9025 available. 915 is near the elevators and 925 is near the Sky Bar, where I believe they still allow smoking (makes DW sick) .. Any comments or suggestions? Also all the port side suites are still open. Thanks.

Tub wall must have 24 inches high. Room was nice after the 04/18 Refurb.
  10. Look for the guy with the Charlie Brown watch.
  11. Kept trying to guess who you were Ronrick. Never found you though.
  12. Thank you for your replies. I think one of our concerns based on this cruise is the 18 day length skewed the age a little higher. This is our 4th Regent cruise and we are very a very active family (we run several half marathons a year together). Thinking the excursions will be great. This cruise has had a few too many sea days (some unplanned). Just looked at the Horizon Suite we have reserved and that might have pushed Regent over the top. Thanks again.
  13. Currently on the Mariner Transcanal. Found demographic much older than we are. Worried that the cruise we have planned for Alaska in September will be a problem for our 28 year old daughter and her boyfriend. Should we switch to Oceania?
  14. We did not get the M&M invite either. Was looking forward to it.
  15. Also in Miami. Thought we were going AA Oakland-DFW-MIA but OAK flight was late by 2 hours so they drove us to SFO for a direct flight. Got to MIA with luggage an hour before the other flight would have arrived, but horror of horrors, we didn't get the first class seats we had in the other flights. Now at the Four Season where just had a great burger for dinner. See you all on board tomorrow.
