Review: Regent Seven Seas Cruises
Our review after sailing with Regent Seven Seas Cruises aboard the Splendor.
Carol and I are sailing in the Straits of Florida, just above Cuba, as we make our way back to Miami, Florida.
For the last week, we’ve been sailing aboard the Seven Seas Splendor, where we made our way to Roatan, Honduras, Harvest Caye, Belize, Costa Maya, Mexico, Cozumel, Mexico, and now back to Florida.
Ordinarily, the Caribbean would not be on our top destination list. However, Miami’s proximity makes it an accessible destination for us to sample various cruise lines.
Cruise Industry News says the Caribbean is the world’s number one cruise destination, with a 36% market share. But if you zoom in on luxury travelers, the Caribbean captures only 18%, whereas Europe and Northern Europe dominate with a combined 43%.

Regent Seven Seas Cruises currently has five 5-star luxury ships sailing the oceans, with a 6th, the Regent Grandeur, making its debut later in 2023.
The Splendor is the second of Regent’s Explorer-class ships which Regent describes as the most luxurious ships ever built. If you take a few minutes to watch the above video, I’m confident you will find their claim justified.
The Splendor features 373 all-balcony suites ranging from 307 to 4,443 square feet. And, as Regent proudly proclaims, every luxury is included, from business-class round-trip international airline tickets to shore excursions, specialty restaurants, gratuities, laundry, all onboard alcohol, Wi-Fi, and more. In fact, it is pretty hard to spend a dime on a Regent cruise.
Once you board the ship, Regent promises an “unrivaled experience” with “every luxury included.”
Here are a few of my photographs from the cruise:

- The Ship – The Seven Seas Splendor holds a maximum of 746 passengers with 548 attentive crew members. It was rare to walk by any of the ship’s staff without a pleasant greeting. And those that you might have regular interaction with called you by name. We found the service to be impeccable and in keeping with what a luxury traveler would expect from a world-class travel brand. The ship was elegant with a dash of opulence, and I have nothing but high praise for the ship and its crew.
- The Suites – As I mentioned above, the Splendor is an all-balcony ship with suites ranging from 307 to 4,4443 sq. ft. We enjoyed a Concierge D Suite #728, with over 400 sq. ft. of space. We found our suite very comfortable, our bed faced the ocean, and we were surprised to see how ample the balcony space was. To view our initial walkthrough, please CLICK HERE.
- The Cuisine – Luxury cruise travelers have very high expectations regarding the cuisine available on a modern luxury cruise ship. They expect options, elegant surroundings, impeccable service, and food that will leave a profound memory for years to come. I am pleased to share that Regent has more than delivered in this department. Regent offers two main dining rooms: Compass Rose for sit-down dining and La Veranda for those who prefer a more casual buffet-style offering. For specialty restaurants, always complimentary with Regent, we enjoyed Chartruese for French cuisine, Prime 7 for steaks and seafood, Pacific Rim for Asian fare, and Sette Mari at La Veranda for Italian. For dining in your swimsuit, there was the Pool Grill. And for a quick snack, we enjoyed the Coffee Connection. While all of Regent’s specialty restaurants were outstanding, Pacific Rim was the favorite for Carol and me.
- And There’s More – From fabulous evening shows to an amazing spa and fitness center, a culinary arts kitchen to gourmet explorer tours, there is so much more to enjoy aboard a Regent Seven Seas Cruise. To explore more, please CLICK HERE.
