We are sailing on the Regatta on the Feb. 20 cruise of the Caribbean. A while back we put a post on the board wondering if anyone else is sailing on this cruise...no responses...perhaps we shall be the only couple on board?
In 2001 we sailed on this ship when it was the R2 in the Mediterranean. We often bought a bottle of wine in various ports (countries) and brought the wine aboard with no problem at the gangplank when reboarding. Our cabin steward then opened the bottle and we then drank the wine on our veranda. Is this practice still allowed (bringing bottles aboard)? Anyone have experience with bringing onshore purchases aboard? Thanks.
As to the entertainment and casino...when it was the R2 most passengers we met did not concern themselves with the lack of glitzy shows or the smallish casino...they were experienced cruisers who had "seen 'em all" on the megaships and were on the R2 for the ports and the special amenities of this smaller size ship.
