Just spent a weeks cruise on the regency jazz. What a fantastic week it was. Not being drinkers we never took the option of £115 all inclusive so cant comment on whether it was worth it or not. No sooner had we joined the ship we were on the move. The cabins were spotlessly clean as were the bed linen and towels and they were kept that way all week. We paid the £90 each to go on the optional Abu Simbal trip. Some people were put off by the 4.35 start and the 3 and a half hour each way... (read more)

Travelled on the Jazz Regency late January 2011 and had a great time the cabin was fine and clean the food very good and did not hear of anybody getting stomach upset. The excursions where excellent with a guide who is very informative.
We took the extra excursion to Abu Simbel and travelled by air well worth doing this if you are prepared to pay a lot more.
We paid for all inclusive £113 each and found this to be a good deal. Staff are very friendly and helpful.
A couple on the trip said it... (read more)

Absolutely fantastic, it was all and more than we expected. We upgraded to all inclusive which was well worth it. All the team on board are excellent and cannot do enough to make your experience of Egypt great.Even though there was little entertainment on board the cabin crew kept everyone entertained with all the towel origami they surprised us with. One thing to be advised of you will need to take Eqyptian pounds with you as the antiquity sites will only accept this currency, we had... (read more)

Having not long returned from a trip on the Regency I can only say what a wonderful time we had, the trips were great and the sites superb,early starts mind you and in the heat,average of 40C,you will appreciate this, however rest and recuperating back on board with our fellow passengers was a delight, which started the moment we arrived back on board being greeted by the staff with a glass of juice and warm towel to wipe away the dust.To avoid having to reach for the wallet we upgraded to...

Staff were amazing all very friendly and helpful. Food excellent especially the seven course meal we had on the 2nd evening it was out of this world. Entertainment on board was low key but the Egyptian night was tremendous every person on board dressed in typical costume great fun and games were very clever indeed. The belly dancing show was again very good. The cabins on board were very big and well decorated and comfortable. Look out for the towel displays. Excellent trips we saw some... (read more)

I loved every minute of my seven days on Travcotels Regency. I don't think the temples, tombs and market wouldn't have been half as great without the warm, cosy atmosphere onboard.
Everyone was kind and polite and the crew too had the time to chat and get to know you.
The food was excellent. (read more)

Will go again next year.
They may remember us from this trip as my wife had a fall in the bathroom but that has not put us off. And even though it was the last day and people were coming and going the management went all out to get us a cabin, food, fruit and drinks for a couple of hours. (read more)

holiday was booked from Thomsons on a different boat - the RA 11, and we were only told at the airport that we would be on this boat. After being intitally worried, we could not have had a better time. Service, cleanliness and care of the guests were top priorities and all the staff went out of their way to make the trip exceptional. Even the cabin boys excelled themselves with the towel sculptures each day providing a laugh. We were later told that Thomson had only used this boat for the... (read more)
