We chose this cruise for a late-Winter getaway to the Western Caribbean as a great way to evaluate the all-inclusive nature of Regent. We were not disappointed at all. The accommodations are very nice (especially after getting bumped up two levels), the food is very good, and the crew is exemplary! The Coronavirus was just getting a foothold in the USA and Regent was surprisingly well prepared. Hand sanitizers were everywhere you looked and proper hygiene was highly recommended and later required. About three days before the end of the cruise, the CDC bumped up their report and Regent took a more stringent approach. Too many changes to write here, but as an example, the library was off limits, due to the prospect of sanitizing each and every page of each and every book, etc. The numerous free excursions were top-notch and the shipboard entertainment was amazing. The cruise director even sang and has a voice bar none. The free wine and liquor was also top notch and flowing. I really can't find anything bad to say about the cruise, but if I had to, I would say that I think Oceania's Mariner had a more beautiful atrium reception lobby with all it's Lalique crystal (which I believe is now gone). I highly recommend this ship and crew to anyone wanting a great voyage. It was worth every penny.

Spacious, with large balcony. Large walk-in closet. Separate shower and tub/shower. Bed orientation is athwart-ship.

Port Reviews

Roatan

Two Zuperman ziplines, followed by 11 "normal" ziplines.

Santo Tomas de Castilla

Beautiful foliage.

Costa Maya

Well done! A real blast. Sorted riders by experience so all could enjoy.

Key West

Saw some nice trees and Robert Frost's cottage. Pretty boring. Leaf blowers made hearing guide difficult.
