While I am not repeat on any line yet, I gotta say, free internet? Really? That's the last thing I am usually thinking of when on vacation. If I'm in a US port (USVI, PR, KW etc) I will use my blackberry for a bit, but once I leave US soil, I don't want contact or to be contacted. And that's saying a lot coming from a guy who is jacked in 24/7 most of the time.

My opinions are mine and mine alone. They do not represent the opinions of The Walt Disney Company nor any of its subsidiaries.
And which perk would you like to see them offer you that they currently don't? (Don't include a free cruise, because that involves ALOT of cruising )
The "free cruise" is actually a perk I like on Seabourn! Yes, it does take a LOT of cruising to get there, but if you are diligent it can be acheived!
After 140 days, there is a one week free cruise, and after 250 days, a two week freebie! The 140 day used to earn you a 2 week, but that has now been changed. (I think too many Seabourners were achieving that milestone)
We were lucky enough to be able to claim the two week at 140 days, and did a Baltic cruise last year. Next year we "should" reach the 250....so have to start thinking where do we want to go next?
Apart from that, I would love to see free internet, because I do spend a lot of time blogging from a cruise....just cant help myself....tragic eh?

I like the free internet and free phone. The free newspapers are nice but I don't read them often. Free pressing isn't as needed since they got rid of formal nights. This year I will qualify for free laundry. In the future I will get free dry cleaning, free deviations on air, and free transfers to and from ship.
Regent also has a "special event" ashore or onboard each cruise that sometimes is wonderful and sometimes not. Of course, for the repeaters party they bring out the good caviar which is nice.
