Regatta Cruise Review by Sailboaters2

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2015
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Penthouse Suite

This was our first commercial cruise. We have cruised extensively on our 43' sailboat, so we are used to boats. We are so delighted we chose Oceania and PH stateroom. The ship was lovely, the cabin spacious with a lovely balcony. Our butler Claudiu was wonderful as was the stewardess Snezanu and Manuel. There was not one person we came in contact on this cruise that was not gracious and helpful.

The food was great with various choices including canapes in our stateroom. We enjoyed the string quartet and early dancing to the orchestra at Happy Hour. The Canyon Ranch Spa was awesome. The sun deck beyond the spa was so relaxing and one day we saw hundreds of dolphin at the bow. We booked snorkeling trips privately and had a wonderful time in Cozumel and Roatan. We were disappointed that Oceania cancelled the Belize snorkel tour as the Barrier Reef was of interest to us, and there were no local operators that we found that could accommodate a small group. Overall a fantastic experience worth every penny, a true vacation.

Spacious, immaculate, beautiful balcony. Lots of room between the bed and cabinets to walk around. Lots of hanging space.


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Cozumel

Highly recommend this operator. Luis and David were delightful, knowledgeable and took us to three snorkel sites that were amazing. Luis got in the water with us and was pointing out various fish. Wonderful experience.

Belize City

We never received an answer as to how many people on the trip. When we arrived there were 45 people jammed shoulder to shoulder in a boat that looked like it should hold 30! We opted not to go, the people were very nice and concerned we were disappointed but this was definitely not for us.

Snorkeling

Alex met us as the appointed time and area. He and Javier took us to 3 fantastic snorkel sites. Both got in the water with us to point out fish, coral etc. Both Alex and Javier were a delight to be with, we felt comfortable and safe with them. They were terrific! I would highly recommend them.

Walked in the opposite direction of 7 miles beach and came upon a public beach Smith Grove secluded and only a couple of people. Changing room and shower as well. What a delight.

Costa Maya

Lots of cruise owned shops, used this as day to relax.

Miami

Easy on the ship, Terminal J right across from parking
