Two weeks ago I was able to experience different types of cruises during four different cruise inspections. We visited Regent Seven Seas, from Royal Caribbean,Enchantment of the Sea, and from Carnival we visited The Valor and The Sunshine. Three of the inspections, started at looking at different staterooms, their commodities and more. Then we walk around the ship looking the different entertainment areas ending with a delicious lunch. Regent Seven Seas experience was a little different, they didn’t have any room available to show us because they were all full with clients belongings. They gave us a tour around the ship, later they gave us a presentation while they served us fancy snacks with wine and mimosa. During the presentation they show us the different kinds of rooms and the comparison prices with other cruise lines. Later they spoil us with the most wonderful lunch.
All the experiences were very nice, definitely there is market for everybody, for every budget and preferences.
Let me show you what I saw…
ROYAL CARIBBEAN ENCHANTMENT OF THE SEA
The experience was nice but I wasn’t impressed. I know that other Royal ships are much impressive that’s the enchantment.
REGENT SEVEN SEAS
Well this was another experience, in another level. The setting is more intimate, all the rooms have balconies. The ship have a combination of simplicity and luxury at the same time. The food was unbelievable delicious. They brought us different plates, small portions that leave your mouth drooling for more but then came another treat as delicious as the previous one.
Another thing about Regent Seven Seas is that upfront the price is higher than other cruise lines but take a look at this…Look at everything that the price includes.
The service is outstanding, the presentation formal and informative. I like the elegance of the staff. Of course you can tell I was more impress with Regent Seven Seas but that doesn’t mean that other cruise lines are not good. Is just matter of preference. If you want to know more about any of these ships let me know. I will talk about the Carnival Ships inspection on my next post.
