Seven Seas Explorer Cruise Review by kcayimf

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2017
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea
  • Cabin Type: Superior Suite

Food has improved a lot since our last cruise with Regent Seven Seas on the Seven Seas Mariner in April 2013, and was the best we've had on any cruise ship this time. The foie gras, grilled lobsters, grilled scallops, grilled shrimps, grilled fish and grilled pork chop in the Main Dining Room were all excellent and they could now be ordered every evening, which was really a great improvement from the past. The two caviar and champagne breakfast, the Sunday brunch, the New York strip steak in Prime 7 and the bread in the Italian restaurant were also excellent. The Asian specialty restaurant Pacific Rim was however not good - westerners may think that's what Asian food is like but as Asians we know that the food there is not only not authentic, but also can be done much better and much more delicious in Asian restaurants in Japan, Hong Kong and Macau.

Services also need some improvements. In particular, all the guests complained for waiting too long (we needed to wait for about an hour!) for the tenders at the port Dartmouth to return to the ship, whilst we were all hungry and wanted some lunches as it was already 3-4 p.m. but lunch was not included in the tour. We also needed to wait for a long time for the coach buses for the tours at the port Dartmouth to arrive (we needed to wait for about 45 minutes!).

Cabin Review

Superior Suite

The cabin is generally ok, except that there is no shower curtain at the bath tub so water will be spilled all over the bathroom if one uses the shower head at the bath tub. A shower curtain should indeed be added.

The cabin is spacious and sufficient for 3 people.
