I was so excited to see that the World Cruise in 2020 will NOT be on the Navigator, but will instead be on the Mariner (although I do wish it was the Voyager, but we do like the Mariner too)!! We have been wanting to do our first world cruise, but wouldn't consider the Navigator. Keeping our fingers crossed that it is a good literary and, more importantly, that we can afford it! Right now we are very seriously considering it - I read the itinerary is to be announced July 20. thumbsup

Cindy,

So happy you will be joining the World Cruiser group. It is certainly an amazing experience. I am happy to see Regent using a larger ship again for their World Cruise. I love Navigator but feel she is too small to handle the number of cruisers interested in taking that trip.

I am signed up for Grand Arctic Splendors on Navigator NYC-NYC June 21, 2018. It will get me out of the summer heat and humidity that North Carolina offers.

I Ditto Beth. Good for you Cindy !! Fingers crossed it works out for you. You'll LOVE it.

I hadn't heard (or read) about this ? We get too much, almost daily mailers from Regent that gets tossed so I missed it.

Marcie - I read this in the Seven Seas Society bulletin that we got last week (it's that big white thing that is kind of like a newspaper). I am with you - most of the stuff we get get's thrown in the recycle bin without even looking at it!

Beth - We loved the Grand Arctic Splendors Itinerary, but couldn't consider it on the Navigator. We know others love her, but we just don't care for that ship (even though we have been on her 4 times I think, although not since the latest dry dock). I am envious of you escaping the heat! Wish we were going somewhere to do the same this summer!

Lucky you, Cindy! Hope it works out that you guys can go. Someday, probably a long ways away, I want to do a world cruise.

Here is the link to announcement of 2020 World Cruise:

https://www.rssc.com/news/details.aspx?newsid=0a662205-fdab-45df-94be-017c81d81474

Half way down page will be link to brochure. Very disappointed in the itinerary; nothing new that I saw. I love Mariner but not this trip.

I wish they had taken the Southern route - southern Africa and South America and Western Australia. But David and I are signing up for it anyway, as the years are ticking away for us and we want to able to say we did a cruise around the world while our health still allows us (it can change in an instant). Maybe we will have a chance for another one that is better one day, but we have been begging them to do a world cruise on any ship except the Navigator for years. So, we are keeping our promise and signing up for it.

I read the Mariner was scheduled for extensive dry dock in March/April 2018 - I sure hope they do something about the closet space - we can live with the smaller bathroom, but the closet space is terrible on the Mariner for a couple traveling on a 131 day itinerary!

Take the 2018 World Cruise - it hits the regions you desired. We're on it and glad that it's with the Navigator which can get into smaller ports than the other Regent ships. With the extra 200 guests on the Mariner there will be many ports that can't handle the number of guests and many will be disappointed that the limited tours available are fully booked.

2018 has been wait listed for a long time. And unfortunately, we just do not like the Navigator. We've been on her 4 times, and we said the last time we wouldn't do it again unless it was an EXCEPTIONAL itinerary, and not too long. No way could we be on Navigator for 4 months. I know a lot of people really love her, but we just don't like the way the ship is laid out. The rooms are fine, but we find the public spaces are very lacking - not enough lounge space, pool bar area too small, venues too crowded and somewhat claustrophobic (and in our opinion, it was a big mistake for them to take away the observation lounge and give it to the spa). The vibration issues some people talk about has never been a problem for us though.

Anyway, we all have our own likes and dislikes! And I am very happy for those folks who do enjoy cruising on Navigator.
