Ship Facts: Regatta Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Regatta Deck Plans
Holiday Regatta cruise
We booked the Regatta cruise as we had heard rave reviews about this line. The only one that met our expectations were the quality of the food.

However, the service in the main dining room was very slow and disorganized. We finally were assigned to one waiter who certainly did his best. This still did not match the service on other ships we have traveled on. Four evenings we were in the dining room for almost three hours.

The nightly entertainment was almost non existent. They had three guest entertainers for the entire 12 day trip. The majority of the shows were dull and we finally stopped going . They did throw a nice New Years Eve party. This was the one entertaining evening on the entire cruise.

Our room steward was wonderful. The staff was always friendly and helpful. Several ports had local tourist officials on the ship before you got off to help you. This was very helpful. Both embarcation and debarcation were quick and efficient.

Also , the maintenance of the ship needs to be looked into. While sitting on the pool deck a fan blade flew off the fan and hit a deck chair with a person sitting on it. It was just extremely good luck that this person was not seriously injured. Further observation of this fan, showed that there had obviously been a problem with it earlier. All of the identical fans on the deck had five blades. This one only had four and then three.
