Around The World With Pat and Mac

The ultimate bucket list item for any cruise-lover is a world cruise. We are excited to bring you the adventures of Pat and Mac and their 137 night Regent World Cruise. Follow along on their adventure as they sail away on the Regent Seven Seas Navigator.

Day 45 Another sea day means another slow start. Pat was happy at breakfast. She got her special whipped cream, which we pre-ordered yesterday, to put on top of her waffles and fresh fruit, her favorite at Vic’s Waffle House...
Day 44 Hooray, a sea day. Time to relax. Not! Because our time is 9 hours different than the East Coast, we tried to facetime before our breakfast and before bedtimes at home, but did not connect with anyone. We...
Day 43 We hustled through a quick breakfast to meet our bus group at 8:45 for a quick drive through Port Lincoln, Australia’s Seafood Capital, and an hour drive to reach Coffin Bay National Park, 27 miles west. The landscape...
Day 42 Today we were in Adelaide and had our first Navigate the World Special Event. Everyone on the world cruise (192 of us) were invited to partake in the “Vineyards of the Australian Countryside” experience. Five busloads went on...

Day 40 In Geelong, a city an hour west of Melbourne, we went on an excursion to the Otway Fly Treetop Walk. Geelong was very active this Saturday morning with an Ironman Competition, girls in high school sculling races on...
Day 39 Our new lecturer, Terry Bishop, spoke today on “The Complete History of Australia in 45 Minutes” (a joke, I’m sure), a quick synopsis of noteworthy events and their dates in history. In 1788, Captain Philips landed at Botany...
Day 39 We left on an eight-hour excursion to the Blue Mountains, a wonderful opportunity to see the beauty of the countryside outside Sydney. We were following the trail of some early Australian explorers, the guide provided colorful backgrounds...
Day 38 Another laid-back sea day is here. We settled into the theater for the two enrichment lectures beginning at 10:00 a.m. The first was by Professor Losey, “The Great Barrier Reef.” In prehistoric ages, Australia had other barrier reefs...
Day 36 After continuous excursion days in New Zealand, it feels really good to have a few sea days to relax a little, or as much as Pat would allow. After a slow start, the morning was filled with enrichment...
