from delray beach , florida we drove to miami for our 12 day cruise on the oceania regatta . we had booked the least expensive outside cabin .it had a porthole and was well furnished etc . we arrived at noon and had to wait an hour to board .seats , water and orange juice were available . promptly @ 1pm they started boarding . it was all civilized as we were given numbers upon arriving at port . we boarded within 15 minutes .
went to buffet which was very good . this ship has appoximately 700 guests and a crew of 400 . coffee and other drinks were served by crew . there is a main dining room , 2 optional restaurants ( no additional charge ) and a pool open restaurant . the food was good to very good . we were disappointed in the optional restaurants as the food was not served hot .
we ate all other meals in the main dining room as we enjoyed the meals more . the crew was fabulous giving excellent service . this crew was pleasant , friendly and pros . my wife said that they were given happy pills . every wish was catered to . for me my big problem in cruising was that I never could get a cup of hot coffee . from the first cup served in the buffet to our last meal in the dining room the coffee was hot .
the activities and entertainment needed improvement . there are no las vegas type review shows only caberet acts . we were not haooy with the ports as there is too much poverty and I do not cope well seeing it . we did enjoy st . barts . all in all It was a great cruis and I do recommend oceania cruises .I am 89 and my wife is 87 . we are booked on the eclipse in december .hoppy cruising !
