We were on the Regatta March 3 "caribbean hideaways" tour. We have been on 10 other cruises: Princess, HAL, Royal Caribbean, Carnival, and Celebrity. We thought that the decor of the ship was gorgeous, the "tranquility beds" were wonderful, the food was very, very good (I'd give it an B+ to an A- overall, but there were some things that were excellent such as the pastries). The service was about average for a cruise ship. The poolside atmosphere was nice with the teak decks and double padded lounge chairs, but kind of boring with no live music or activities. The entertainment was lacking, not much to do during the day, and at night there was just the one show. No dancing for the "younger (30's-50's) set"-- except one or two "parties" that started at 11:00. We had a great time, but so much of it was the association of friends we made on the ship. It was elegant and laid back, which is great if that's the experience you're looking for. We are in our 50's and prefer a livelier atmosphere overall. We like the sea days (and nights) with lots to do onboard. This would be a better choice for those "port-intensive" types, a luxurious dining/sleep experience between ports, but with the ship not being the main attraction.
