Regatta

January 2014 - Regatta to Caribbean

Not up to usual standards

We have cruised on Regent and Oceania (same owners) and have been quite pleased in the past.  While we enjoyed this cruise, there were some noticable cutbacks:  Staff were not trained as well (lack of service skills and language skills) especially the restaurant servers at the buffet. The food was not quite the quality we expected except in the specialty restaurants. The wine stewards sometimes difficult to track down and the rooms were tired and in need of some maintenance.  Nearly everyone we met had some problem--toilets didn't flush, a/c didn't work properly, curtins lacked hooks so hung down.....

Neither the menus nor the day's activities were on the TV which, IMHO, is an inconvenience that can't be that expensive to do.  Also, a daily report from the ship's Captain was only provided on the first and last day.  Temperatures and weather were never "available" on the TV. Minor problems, certainly, but I'm afraid it  does not auger well for future travel on Oceania (and probably Regent).
