Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2013
Cabin: Deluxe Suite

Service in all areas, especially cabin service and Pool Grill, was excellent. The weather was very very windy and the ship did not seem to handle it well. Luckily we had a mid ship cabin on Deck 6 so it was as smooth as possible. Higher decks were very rocky. There was so much spray and motion we were unable to use our balcony except in port. The dinner menus in Compass Rose were a little weird. I had grilled salmon off the "every day available" menu until I was tired of it then ordered plain pasta with a sauce from one of the appetizers. My mom had lamb every night because she did not like any of the odder entrees.

The entertainment from the singers/dancers/specialty acrobatic act was excellent. Too bad they did not perform more often.

We loved the Pool Grill - tropical drinks, delicious white wine, custom burgers, sweet potato fries, salmon and tuna burgers. Our party of six including two 88 year olds, had lunch at Pool Grill every day instead of the more sedate service at Compass Rose. The buffet area at La Terrazza was very very crowded at both breakfast and lunch. This is another serious concern about this ship compared to other all-inclusive luxury ships.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Suite

Cabin D

The cabin was excellent. Great location - mid ship, lower deck. This was especially important with the rough seas and heavy winds we had during this trip. I did not think this ship was handling the weather well at all, but at least it was somewhat peaceful in our cabin.

Port Reviews

San Juan

We do love San Juan and have traveled to and from this port many time.

St. Barts

Nothing really here except expensive shopping. It was fun to shop in the French language grocery and drug stores, though. The tender ride over was very difficult due to rough seas and heavy winds. I was afraid someone would get hurt getting on and off the tender, it was bobbing up and down so violently.

St. Lucia

We did the zip lining at Tree Top Canopy Adventures. It was a free shore excursion on Regent. It was great fun and really well done.

Antigua

Took a bus tour, had a great tour guide and really enjoyed the island.

St. Maarten

Have been to St. Maarten many times. It seemed a little more commercial this trip and not as full of local flavor.
