Unfortunate "inconvenience"

Regatta Cruise Review by maryannthomas49

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2017
  • Destination: the South Pacific
  • Cabin Type: Penthouse Suite

We chose this cruise because of the 8 ports scheduled and the area. Due to a power failure we were tugged back to Oahu in the middle of the night, no lights, no toilets, and we were evacuated to the 9th deck in our pajamas and jackets for 4 hours. We were stuck in Oahu for 3 days while the ship was "fixed". There was a fire on board during that time with no explanation given. 3 ports were eliminated from our itinerary, ones that were important to us. The incident was called an "inconvenience". Upon leaving the ship in Papeete, we were bused to a hotel meeting room where we sat for 12 hours. Our charter flight was delayed 4 hours, causing a change in our connection at LAX. We missed our flight to San Diego because LAX immigration was so crowded. Our luggage made it to SD but we did not.
