Crossing The Big Pond Slowly and In Style

In ten days we sail from Miami to Barcelona on Regatta, our third Transatlantic cruise with Oceania cruises.

It’s a 15-day crossing that docks only in Funchal (Madeira), Portugal Day 10, Casablanca, Morocco Day 12, and Malaga, Spain Day 13 before ending in Barcelona Day 15. The ship’s itinerary can be found here.

A couple who stayed in the exact same stateroom as ours on a previous Regatta Transatlantic posted a bunch of great photos. Juergen and Betty do look just a bit serious, but they must have had a great time, or they wouldn’t have taken all of those terrific pictures, would they?

Transatlantics on Oceania remain one of the great bargains for a quality cruise experience, so - shhh - please don’t tell anybody about them.

Bud and Jessie, the Toronto couple we met at beginner bridge lessons on our most recent Oceania Transatlantic, are on the cruise as well, and we’re all set to start bridge all over again. We’ve also posted to the Cruise Critic Roll Call forum thread for this cruise, and we're looking forward to meeting those fellow cruisers on board.
