Ship Facts: Regatta Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Regatta Deck Plans
Regatta the Beautiful

Regatta is small and club like. Staff is attentive and friendly without being intrusive. Fellow passengers were friendly, with few young people--mostly in 50's, 60's. Surprise for us was the entertainment--our last Oceania cruise was too port-intensive for late-night entertainment, but this one had many sea days. Previous posts were noted, but we thoroughly enjoyed the shows we saw, especially the foursome who did reviews of Broadway and famous songsters.

The location of this cabin--4023--was close to elevators and stairs, midship but more aft. It was convenient and quiet except on early morning port days, when there were a few bangs from below, where the gangway was being moved. It really didn't bother us. Our BIL and SIL had a balcony, and while we have never felt that necessary for us, considering the extra cost, it truly was lovely!

The ports were wonderful, where we took private excursions with the aid of CC reviews. Dora the Explorer in Cartagena and Sebastian Hernandez in Acapulco went out of their way to ensure our good time. Elizabeth Bell sent a wonderful driver/escort, Manuel, with us in Antiqua, where his knowledge and love of his country were obvious. Huatulco was beautiful, and while we only had a beer and swim at the beach, the day was delightful.

On board, the food, as always reported, was great. Service is remarkable--once you were "known" by a server, what you wanted appeared magically.

I took advantage of OBC to try out the spa, and had the best massage of my life, and my first facial--yummy!

Regatta is scheduled for an updating, and I hope they retain the calming, quiet ambiance! (Yes, the artwork needs some help!)
