The cruise that we’ll be going on in March is a 12-day journey around the Caribbean. This is not the first Caribbean cruise we’ve taken — the first was in 1982 and we’ve been on 9 cruises that have at least touched a few islands in that area. In total, we’ve been on 16 cruises, everywhere from the warmth of the Caribbean to the Mediterranean, and up to Alaska.
If you’d like to see some of the details of the upcoming cruise, take a look at this link, which shows the ports of call and schedule. We were attracted to this cruise by an excellent price, the fact that it is going to a number of islands that we haven’t yet visited, and that it’s still relatively cold here in Colorado.
We’ve been on much larger cruise ships than the Oceania Regatta, but this ship sounds nice and has very good ratings from travel blogs. Here’s some of the marketing fluff from their website:
Sleek, elegantly charming, Regatta is the Flagship of the Oceania Cruises fleet. Her decks are resplendent in the finest teak, custom stone and tile work and her lounges, suites and staterooms boast luxurious, neo-classical furnishings, Regatta offers every luxury you expect. Four unique, open seating restaurants, a world class fitness center and spa, 8 lounges and bars, casino and 342 lavish suites and luxurious staterooms, nearly 70% of which feature private verandas. And with just 684 guests to pamper, our 400 professionally trained European staff ensures you will want for nothing.
This should be a blast and we’re definitely ready for the enjoyment of cruising again.
