Ports of Call: Seven Seas Voyager made stops at Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Fujairah, United Arab Emirates; Muscat, Oman; Mumbai, Goa and Cochin, India; Maldives; Seychelles; Kenya; Zanzibar, Tanzania; Madagascar; Maputo, Mozambique; and Richards Bay, Durban and Cape Town, South Africa.
Embarkation/Disembarkation: We started our experience with a three-day pre-cruise tour in Dubai, which was wonderful. Our adventure then began in Dubai and finished in Cape Town, South Africa. Overall, the ship accommodates 700 passengers and 450 crew.
Stateroom: Our master suite featured two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. A separate dining room, living room and bar rounded out the suite offerings. We’ve sailed many times with Regent Seven Seas and have never been disappointed.
Services/Amenities: The best part of the Regent Seven Seas experience: It includes everything — all specialty restaurants, all beverages, our shore excursions and laundry. The onboard fitness center is wonderful. Also, tipping is not expected on the ship.
◆ Service and food are the very best.
◆ We return to Regent Seven Seas time and time again.
◆ For us, the most interesting ports of call were Dubai, Madagascar and Cape Town.
