  1. Thanks very much for this terrific thread. Brings back lots of wonderful memories — one of our favorite cruises.
  2. Another thank you, Flossie, for a wonderful thread.

    Colon excursions

    Thanks so much!!
  4. Our full transit (18 day from Miami to San Fran) cruise on Regent has offered a dozen or so excursions (included in the cruise fare on Regent). So many of them sound interesting and in fact some of them sound similar. I'm having a difficult time deciding which to choose. Would love to hear about people's favorites. Thank you.

    Which excursion?

    Thanks for the responses. Land and Sea to Soufriere it shall be! And, yup, Regent Explorer (a kind of destination in itself, though we wouldn't even be doing this cruise if dear Caneel were still there).

    Which excursion?

    Our cruise ship offers 8 or so included excursions in St Lucia. I have no idea how to choose. I'm hoping that people will be kind enough to mention some of their favorite things to do on that Island. We're in our 80's and can't do super active kinds of things, but can certainly walk for 2-3 hours. Would like to experience some of the rainforest (we love those in Costa Rica and Australia), but we also love to snorkel. Thank you.
  8. Excursions are included on our cruise line, and these are two among many. We love to snorkel, but the snorkeling (catamaran over to the reef) is only about hour and a half. The island tour is about 4 hours. I wonder if anyone has strong feelings about which might be more interesting. Thank you.
  9. Bill: Regent just announced a promotional saving for the January 8 cruise, about $700. Received an email from our TA.
  10. ronrick, When we stayed at Le Meridien last May, our room was perfectly quiet and very pleasant. I specifically asked for a quiet room and request was obliged. Doesn't necessarily happen, of course, but do remember to ask if you like quiet accommodations (even though you might enjoy the bustle outside). Wish we were going back to Barcelona this May!
  11. Thanks for coming back, Bill! Turtles, for one thing, last I checked Mazatlan was a category 4 (!) risk on State Department site. Also, we're not all that interested in towns and cities. I.e. if they're something especially splendid or historical, we do enjoy them, but our main enjoyment at this point in our lives is nature, gorgeous scenery, that kind of thing.
  12. Thanks for the responses. The Regent trip, alas, will be late May, and I am spectacularly allergic to mosquitoes. They get me no matter what I do for protection. Bill, it interests me that you use the phrase "the bulk of my transits." Wow, you must really love the area. I wish I could get more interested in the itinerary (as my husband is). One of the drawbacks for me is the knowledge that some of the ports may be cancelled due to... whatever... (civil unrest, volcanoes, etc) There are so many sea days already among those 18 days that I'd be fairly bored if ports were excluded. And some of the ports, e.g. Mazatlan, don't have any interest at all for me. Nor Acapulco. I'm reading PATH BETWEEN THE SEAS, and finding it very interesting, but for some reason I'm not overly enthusiastic about seeing the thing in the flesh. For my husband's sake, I hope I can somehow become more interested. Thanks again to both of you.
  13. There's an 18-day itinerary (on Regent, our cruise line of choice) that begins in Miami, ends in San Francisco. The timing is good for our calendar. BUT: I'm wondering if it's a terrible idea to do such an itinerary in May. Also: Are mosquitoes quite awful on the various excursions (excursions are included on Regent)? Thanks!
