We chose this cruise as we had previously cruised on Regent Seven Seas Voyager and enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately we found that it did not live up to our expectations.
The food in La Veranda was average, Compass Rose was better and the service good but unfortunately we were very disappointed in Sette Mari which was our favourite on our previous cruise. The specialty restaurants were okay but nothing special.
Shore excursions were mixed, some good and some a total waste of time. We thoroughly enjoyed the excursions to Petra and Jerusalem/Bethlehem. Petra itself was fascinating and we wish we could have stayed there longer.
Cabin was clean, bed comfortable, balcony a bit small and bathroom very nice with separate shower and bath.
