Ship Facts: Regatta Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Regatta Deck Plans
Amazon Adventture
This was a thoroughly enjoyable cruise. The only problem we encountered was during embarkation when their computers were down. Fortunately, we came toward the end of this as some people had to wait about 2 hours before they could board. We began with a Cruise Critic meeting right after the lifeboat drill and met the people we had planned to join for our privately arranged tours. This was our second tour with Oceania and we now decided it's our favorite line. Staff is friendly, service is very good, and the food first class. We love the open seating and times. There are two specialty restaurants where one only has to make reservations with no extra charges. There are enough activities to keep one busy all day. I rarely had time to read my book. One of the popular activities was team trivia with averaging 10 teams of 8-to 10 very competitive members. There were guest entertainers, 2 lecturers, a string quartet which played during tea times and every evening, and the 4 member activity staff also comprised the Regatta Singers and Dancers. We went on only one ship tour in Parintins, Brazil because it was the only way we could see the Boi Bomba carnival type show which was performed especially for the cruise ship. It is regularly a 3 day show and competition in June. Most of the people to whom we spoke seemed to have enjoyed the ship's tours. Because of high winds, we had to skip Devil' Island. Also, because one of the ports we visited was not going to have enough fuel for the ship to refuel for the 5 day trip on the Amazon, There was a note in our cabins that we were going to stop in Port of Spain, Trinidad, instead of Scarborough. This meant that those who had booked a private tour in Scarborough had to scurry to find a replacement tour. It is interesting to note that of the 680 passenger ship, more than half were repeaters, which must tell you something.
