We chose this cruise for the itinerary and our previous experience on Oceania. However, our cruise on the Regatta left much to be desired.
We found the service in the Main Dining Room to be extremely slow. The General Manager aboard indicated that their goal is 1-3/4 hours to 2 hours per table for dinner. We had 2 dinners where it took over 2-1/2 hours to finish. I attribute this to a lack of staff as while the dining room staff were enthusiastic and personable they were running around trying to service their tables. The staff in Polo also seemed to be under staffed and the servers were slow in responding and mixed the orders on more than one occasion.
Overall, the quality of the food was very good, however, several times the meats were overcooked and dry.
