Sailing Towards Rangorea, French Polynesia

Another sea day but it was also Sunday on Regent. This means champagne and caviar for breakfast! What a civilized way to start the day!


It was also the super bowl and Regent did not disappoint. They set up a tailgate party in the bar outside the theater and streamed the game on the big screen in the theater. The house was packed with sports fans on the edge of their seats. If you remember, it was a nail biter between the Falcons and the Patriots with the Patriots pulling off the win at the last moment!


We were also determined to take in the show. I'm ashamed to say we are seldom awake or, if we are awake, we are reading in bed. The show consisted of music and dance from around the world and I found it pretty lame. I think I would have left if we were sitting in a less conspicuous place.

The internet on Navigator, while slow, has been faster than the internet on Voyager. When we were on her in May, I couldn't upload photos no matter what time of day. I also think that Regent is counting on passengers bringing their own devices as the computer area looks like an afterthought and is squeezed into the coffee connection. Only 4 desktops and a little desk for the internet manager.


As far as the suites go, we are in concierge, mid ship, on level 7. We feel the motion but not as much as you would forward or aft. Our friends are on deck 10 in a penthouse A suite. They feel more motion than we do. As far as choosing a cabin, most are exactly the same so I don't feel that paying more for inconsequential perks is exactly worth it. In our suite we get binoculars (which we have anyway), an expresso machine which we don't use, and a different color scheme. Our friends get a butler and afternoon snacks. Same size room, same size deck. Some suites do not have balconies and some suites in the back are smaller with obstructed balconies, so it is important to check the deck plans before booking a cabin.
