U.S. repositioning cruise

Sail Date: April 2011
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
This was an all-included cruise on the Seven Seas Navigator - a 490 passenger ship. From the beginning in Ft. Lauderdale to the finish in San Francisco, it was first class all the way. This was a repositioning cruise from April 25 to May 13 to get the ship in position to begin its Alaskan summer trips from Seattle. Repositioning cruises are less expensive, but no less luxurious.

Our ports of call included Grand Cayman, Cartagena, Costa Rica, five in Mexico, and San Diego. The trip through the Panama Canal was especially interesting since we saw the massive construction of the new and larger canal. Everything was included such as gratuities, drinks and shore excursions. Surprisingly for a smaller ship, it had several excellent floor shows with very talented dancers and a fine band.

Our cabin had a walk-in closet, full size bathtub and shower, a stocked mini-bar and more storage space than we could possibly use. Service throughout the ship was attentive and friendly. More Passengers we met were seasoned travelers who knew a good thing. The one flaw was a Regent policy which prevented us from traveling with the rest of the passengers to the San Fraancisco airport. We had reserved a rental car at the airport to drive to Seattle and fly home from Seattle. If we were flying from San Francisco, we would have been given transportation. I can't figure that reasoning. One sour note in an otherwise fine cruise. Less

Cabin review: E Deluxe Suite

Quiet. Amazing amount of room for a standard cabin. Great storage. Full size tub and separate shower. Able to pull draperies to separate bedroom area from sitting area to minimize daylight if wanted.

Port and Shore Excursions

Must take a taxi or bus to get to the beach. Our sting ray excursion was called off because of stinging jellyfish! a big disappointment.

The sea lion encounter was a hoot.
