Review summary

Prime 7 had excellent food and service. Compass Rose had very good food but spotty service. Sette Mare had very good food and okay service. Missed two ports-Guatemala because of volcano disruption and Nicaragua because of civil unrest. Regent was able to add a new port visit in Costa Rica which was excellent. The other port in Costa Rico and the one in Jamaica had at best fair excursions. There was only one lecturer on board and his talks were okay. The Panama transit was the highlight. State room service was very good. The entertainment was also very good. Would not come back to New York City. Traffic and road construction were horrible. Miami is a much better port.

Ship tip

Do not plan to go to Compass Rose on the night of the Crew Capers. Everyone comes at one time.

Spent over one hour on very bumpy roads to see 2 jungle creatures on a boat ride and an hour on a rainy train ride because the engine's wheels had no traction.

What we saw was a rundown country.

New York, New York Did not visit port

If you can, leave from LaGuardia instead of JFK. Closer to port.
