Default Regatta: 3/14 Atlantic crossing

This will be our first cruise on Oceania and first time crossing the Atlantic. Any advice on seven days at sea would be appreciated. What will the weather be like this time of year?

We are also on this cruise and really looking forward to it. Did you get in on their great 2 for 1 deal with free air? Fantastic!

We have sailed from Lisbon to St Thomas and Barbados three times in Nov on Windsurf and had excellent weather, with temps ranging from 70F to 100F. I imagine the weather in March will be similar except that it will start out warm/hot in Miami and cool down as we sail east to Lisbon.

As for sea days, we have never been bored on our previous trips. We are not into casinos or big production shows so the relaxing atmosphere suits us well. We take a bag of books we've been meaning to read and leave them on board. On our Windsurf crossings, the days (14, all at sea) flew by and I'm sure they will on Regatta as well.

Are you taking the transfer from Miami airport to the ship? Since there are four of us we think we can get to the ship for less than $120.

See you on board!

Thanks for the info. We are so excited to cruise on the Ragatta and will look forward to meeting you.

Yes! We did get a great deal but do not have documents yet so do not have our plans for getting from the airport to the ship. Since we are flying from the West Coast, we may be getting in the day before. $120 sounds steap for a transfer -- does Oceania not include that in your cruise price?

We are looking forward to the relaxing atmosphere and some reading time also. We can't wait!

Transfers are not included. We were quoted $90/pp for the transfers from Miami airport to ship and from ship to Lisbon airport. We are staying in Lisbon for awhile after the cruise so didn't need that transfer. Mike, on this board, just advised me that a cab from Miami airport to Port of Miami will be about $25, (for two) including tip. I probably wasn't clear in my last post. Oceania is charging $30/pp for this transfer which is usual.

Have you been to Lisbon before? It is one of our favorite cities! We are traveling with our best friends who also love Lisbon but who have not been on a transatlantic cruise.

Do you have any idea how many pax will be on board? In our experience, transatlantic cruises are usually only half booked, but with the great pricing on Regatta I doubt that will be true of this cruise.

No, we have not been to Lisbon. Our friends are also staying on after the cruise so there will be a lot of you. Some of us have to get back to work...darn!

It is my understanding that everything is sold out except the Penthouse. It may be a little crowded with a full ship and everyone on board crossing the Atlantic. I hear there is a good space ratio on the ship. Should be fun...
