Ship Facts: Regatta Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Regatta Deck Plans
Regatta - Eastern Caribbean

This ship and its staff are fantastic! We chose a Penthouse Suite because the price difference was small and the room was much larger. There were a few kinks the first night because on the first trip from Miami some passengers had stolen linens, towels, and alarm clocks from the stateroom. The linens were nice as was the alarm clock but it is unfortunate that Americans that can afford a cruise would stoop that low.

The crew, even though they were ironing out some initial kinks, couldn't do more to please you. They seemed happy with each other and to be working on the ship. It's very interesting as it is a real U.N. with crew from all over.

Requesting to eat with a large table every night enabled us to meet many interesting people. All of them were well traveled and there were few complaints. Food was the best that I have had on 41 cruises. It is, however, even better in the Polo Grill. Check with the Maitre D' at breakfast to see if there are openings that night. You will likely get a table if you are flexible about time and are willing to eat with others.

Although small, the public spaces are well designed and we were never at a loss for a place to sit. The ports visited were also interesting and if you are into ship excursions, they offered one adventure at each and every delightfully excellent port. We did the stingray city excursion.  It was great.

The cruise director and staff were "dignified" but extremely friendly. They did not force themselves on you but were there to answer any questions. Kudos to the photo shop who worked with our digital camera (among others) and were successful in getting it to work - at no charge! The lack of children was also a major success for us as we took that vacation to get away from children.

I hope they keep up the good work!
