Aboard Regatta

Encounter enchanting destinations in the Caribbean and Central America on this incredible eighteen-night odyssey aboard Oceania Cruises’ Regatta. Begin your journey in Miami and set sail for Key West, the southernmost point in the continental United States. Cruise the Straits of Florida and stop in George Town, where you can swim with stingrays or try your hand at scuba diving. In Cartagena, stroll the cobblestone streets of the walled city and see the dominating fortresses of the Old Town. Transit the famed Panama Canal, a modern-day wonder of the world, and head to Puntarenas. Enjoy fresh-caught lobster in a waterfront restaurant or discover wildlife as you walk through the rain forest. Next, set off for Corinto, a quaint village on the shores of the Pacific. Explore its quiet beaches or discover nearby León and its many historic churches and monuments. In Acajutla, pitch a sun umbrella on the sand or head inland to see the wildlife of El Impossible National Park. Spend a day discovering Acapulco, one of Mexico’s oldest resort cities. Visit the world-class botanical garden or check out the cliff divers of La Quebrada who fearlessly dive into the sea from heights of over 100 feet. Cruise the Pacific to Cabo San Lucas and experience its world-class beaches and diverse marine life. Before your adventure ends in San Francisco, encounter the enthusiasm of sunny San Diego—from Balboa Park to the picturesque Point Loma.
