Amazon Cruise: Regatta Cruise Review by Shantzyboy
Overall Member Rating
Destination: South America
Embarkation: Rio de Janeiro
The Regatta is a smaller ship, with only 684 passengers - very different from our normal cruises with 4,000 people on board. This ship is geared to an older clientelle which we sometimes found somewhat frustrating as we are quite active. (We are in our mid 60's). We had heard that Oceania cruiselines is a more upscale line and we found this to be very true. We had booked an ocean view room on dectk 4 which was great but I More think that a balcony would have been much better. However, our group normally spent a lot of time on the main deck anyway.
The service on Regatta was superb from room servcie to the dining room. I personally did not really participate in a lot of activities but there was certainly lots of things to kkep a person occupied.
The entertainment was fantastic with only the magician act being changed partway through the trip. The singers and dancers kept us well entertained. Less

The romm was well laid out but maybe a bit on the small side. My wife and I are not large people so we had no problem. All amenities were there that we required. We were a little concerned since this was a smaller ship and we did a fair amount of open ocean cruising but this boat was well stabilized and no one from our group was ill.
South America is great!
