  1. Hmmmm.. we have avoided Tuscan recently after so many less than average dining experiences . Have certainly prefered Main Dining on first night after poor service and food on Tuscan Solstice , so hopefully they will get their act together .its a lovely venue but should be Special - hence the price upcharge - and certainly not average / ordinary .. maybe we will return in April .
  2. Yes it was on the Solstice in October - Prime Rib and the Pork Chop are the best on that 1st night menu - IMHO .
  3. First Regent Cruise and just in an entry level suite . On Crystal we were able to order spirits for our cabin- 2x1Litres of your choice for the cabin and these were relaced once consumed . The mini bar setup on Regent is just Beer , soft drinks , wine ? water ? We dont drink 1 of those - beer , and mix something with the soda , otherwise no thanks -- are we able to ordersay Gin , Vodka for the cabin or is this not possible ?
  4. Just read on a post here that we will not be able to use our OBC in the casino -- is that correct . Obviously our first Regent Cruise and this was a surprise as we usually donate the OBC there on other cruise lines.🥴
  5. Really enjoyed the postings - thankyou . We have a Regent cruise booked for next year , and was curious about the post which said we couldnt use our onboard credit in the casino ? . We have $400 from Regent and $100 from our TA and were hoping to use the OBC there . We have sailed on Crystal and are Elite on Celebrity and always do so on those lines ?
  6. My advice is that booking direct with Regent the advertised price includes all port fees and taxes etc ? We usually book with a US TA , time differences making a call problematic at the moment and email a wait and see , so was just thinking taxes must not be included in the price we have been given as its several hundred dollars cheaper than via the Regent website ? Anyone here book with a TA and then have taxes added to the price as opposed to booking direct ? Obviously we are new to Regent .
  7. Just off Solstice - 2 cabins 7278 and 7280 and the constant thumping noise from below made sleeping difficult for us . We had guest relations come in to listen and the answer was " wave action " - ? . We are Elite and have never experienced this before - has anyone else ? Not sure if any other cabins had the same , just hoping it doesnt re-occur next April when we sail on her again .
  8. Yep , I'm hung up on the food - and certainly dont feel I'm missing the point . After all this IS a dining experience - the food should be the hero - , As for Genius Story Telling .. and being happy with a grilled cheese for $55 ..... really ?
  9. In my opinion - aside from the cartoon novelty /frivolity -- MDR menus - a not so fine dining experience for $55 per head. Tried it once , but the menu needs to be of Murano standard for a return for us at that price .
  10. For us LPC was a once visit -- cute and quirky - and a bit of fun - nice food served "en-mass " , but the second time with the surprise and novelty lost , the limited menu and wedding like serving of each course all together - its not a fine dining experience - especially at $55 ph . Not sure how the concept will evolve -- and how regular cruisers will react - for us its one less specialty dining venue on our next cruise .
  11. Thankyou - very kind of you -- and please dont interupt any moment that interferes with your fun - enjoy every moment .
  12. Totally loving the blog and now totally confused about Silk Harvest . Celebrity cancelled our Silk Harvest reservation and refunded the OBC we had used for this. Are you saying the restaurant is still operating ? - we cruise in October and were looking forward to SH again as we have already had the le Petit Chef "experience " . Cheers
  13. Our VTG TA said , regarding enquiring about the 4 perks for our already paid for cruise the cruise line will not allow you to downgrade your cabin,adjust the price nor give any additional amenities. If you feel it is worth it to you to lose the deposit by cancelling & re-booking we can do that. Gee , Thanks for that . We were only hoping for an upgrade for our beverage package .
