Regatta Cruise Review by Cdtravellers
- Sail Date: March 2019
- Destination: Around the World
- Cabin Type: Penthouse Suite
I had read rave reviews of the food, but that’s so subjective I didn’t have real expectations. The food was very inconsistent; great in day and not so great the next. The fish was awful - other than the tuna, I found bones in EVERY fish dish I ordered.
We ignored the entertainment, as it just wasn’t for us.
The staff are for the most part their bright spot - they learn your name immediately and make you feel very at home. I wish they didn’t try to sell you so many extras - one day we had 5 different staff members try to get us to sign up for a wine tasting within 30 minutes!!! Clearly there is a commission/bonus involved.
Our butler was overworked and it showed - I think he had at least 10 staterooms he was attending to, if not far more. Our stewardess was an absolute gem!!! The cruise director, some guy named Shawn, needs improvement!
Tendering was a mess - I’ll leave the details out but it was super disorganized.
We were constantly late to port. I guess when they say “in port at 0800” they mean entering the harbor then. So when you see the times in port when booking your cruise, subtract at least 2 hours.
Spa services were inconsistent, with one masseuse good and another terrible.
We enjoyed meeting so many wonderful people, as the smaller size of the ship facilitates meeting and interacting with other guests.
In a nutshell, Oceania isn’t for us.
