Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2015
Cabin: Penthouse Suite

We have cruised on various other cruise lines starting in 1976. The Regent Paul Gauguin 2x was a past similar experience for us.

The Dining Rooms - Compass Rose, Prime 7, and Sette Mari have tasty menus, food and excellent service staffs. The Patio Grill at noontime biggest shortcoming is the lack of ice to cool salads with mayo and other non heat resistant dressings and contents sitting out in the open sun without being cooled by ice.

The Island Excursions for the most part consisting of riding up one steep hill and down another. SAt. Bart's is over hyped . Also, this can be said of the remaining Isles. The Amazon River stops at the small villages at which the residents live with Sloths, Monkeys and Rats as pets. The opera House at Manaus is not to be missed. Most of the tourist items for sale in the amazon region are prohibited from entry into the US. Also, the Piranha fishing and Boi Bumba trips are lots of fun.

Cabin Review

Penthouse Suite

Cabin B

Cabin has a King Sized Bed 72" across, sheets are changed every three days by a very efficient

Steward and Stewardess Patrico & Andrea. Any thing out of order is promptly set right. Bar is stocked with premium spirits and replenished when empty. Beer, Water and Soft Drinks replenished in the mini frig by the Butler Service (Snedal) daily. The Butler Service serves Canapes at 5 PM each night in the Suite. Bed was comfortable and room was cleaned and picked up twice daily. Interior of the Suite and Public Rooms considering the age of the ship were well maintained.

Harried bumpy bus trip thru Old San Juan with no stops except for a drop off at a Fort. A waste of time
