Would really like to hear from those of you who have been on Regatta or are going and what the casino is like. Have an A2 Cat. cabin and wonder about the bathrooms since I have read so much on here about how small they are. We also would like to hear about minimum bets in the casino and if there are quarter slots????? We have gone on Crystal a lot, but really like the itinerary of this Amazon River cruise. Does Oceania decorate for Christmas as we'll be on there until Dec. 22???? I'd really appreciate some answers/comments. Thanks, Joy
We've sailed on the Regatta before. The bathrooms are smaller than Carnivals, but we have managed. At least the floor isn't flooded each time you shower! We've never sailed during the holidays, so I'm not certain if they decorate for the holidays.
The food is great (Jacques Pepin is the head chef and has a good selection). The portions are smaller, so you can enjoy each entre'. This will be our 3rd cruise on the Regatta (having sailed twice before when it was the R2 on Renaissance Cruise Lines).
We enjoy the informalality and compactness of the ship.
We are traveling with 2 other couples in November. Two of us are on Deck Six and one is on Deck 7 above our cabins. You will enjoye the verandas, for a quiet get-away. We are going into Miami the day before, since one never knows about the weather at that time of the year
Hope to meet you on board.
John and Connie
We are scheduled on this cruse also. However, we are looking to cancel! we have experienced nothing but frustration from Oceania from the first moment we dealt with them and have finally gotten to the straw that broke the camel's back. It's so infortunate that dealing with "customer service" can make you wish you'd never heard of the company.:evil:
