Regatta Cruise Review by ppandgg
- Sail Date: October 2018
- Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
- Cabin Type: Penthouse Suite
The food in Grand Dining Room and The Terrace is still very good, but a step down from what we experienced on previous sailings. Toscana and Polo Grill are still wonderful. Service staff in general were lovely, but some were poorly trained with snafus on drink orders and restaurant reservations which seemed to disappear even though we had the print out summary of our reservations from the front desk. There was no explanation, no apology and we were supposed to feel grateful that they managed to "fit us in."
There were power outages and some ship sections experienced non- flushing toilets at times.
The ship is due for an overhaul and we got the impression it had many ongoing mechanical issues. But none of this was address by the staff.
Our cabin was quite nice and kept very clean by housekeeping staff.
There was good entertainment and plenty of activities like Trivia, golf putting, shuffleboard, ping pong, Bridge lessons and games, casino w slots and poker tournaments, karaoke. But we went for the port visits and excursions, not endless sea days.

Historical City CenterDecent walking tour but some confusion towards the end. 45 minutes scheduled for shopping which some people did not want to do but they also didn't want to walk back to the ship. I don't know how that was resolved since we had always planned to skip shopping and walk back.View All 60 Historical City Center Reviews
