Review summary

Ancient Legends is clearly a misnomer.  The archaeological sites were often long bus trips from the port leaving limited time to explore the "ancient legends."  Riding back and forth on a bus full of people for  an hour or more to a site is disappointing. The highlight of this trip was the passage through the Panama Canal . It was fascinating but hardly ancient.


The Regatta is an older Oceania ship. We had an expensive suite that was worn and dusty. The suite was also above the lounge (which no one warned us about) so we had to listen to the the band rehearsing during the day and playing at night. Listening to a thumping base and hard hitting drums does not make for a quiet relaxing cruise.

Don't get this suite. It is above the lounge and you can hear the music during the rehearsals during the days and shows at night. It is shabby and dusty.

Ship tip

Set up your own tours. We did this for several ports of call. Don't worry about getting back to the ship on time. Private tours are totally aware of the time issues.
