Sail Date: Feb 2017
Cabin: Penthouse Suite

The wonderful people and natural beauty of indigenous animals, birds, fish, plants, well worth the experience. The Regatta and crew come through every time, it is more like family, though we may be the family members requiring intervention. LOL Captain Hansen, Cruise Director Corey, and our Butler Rahman, were very personable, attentive to the guests, and thoroughly kept everyone updated. As always the food was amazing, we especially enjoy the Terrace, for staff, selection, and quantity control. But then again with the awesome upgraded drink package, quantity control was thrown over-board.

Thank you Michael (waves bar) and your staff for always accommodating me with a "skinny" drink.

We had NO idea what to expect, the Amazon river itself is not with in a triple canopy forest, it is actually a flood plain. Suggestions concerning shore excursions: book your own, as they are limited from the ship. We had the MOST amazing, guides!!

Stayed 2 days in South Beach at Riviera Hotel, walking distance to everything.

Free 2 hour happy hour cocktails, yup "free" with live music. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
