My wife an I have been on 22 cruises in the last 10 years, most with Celebrity and a few on Crystal, Holland America and Royal Caribbean. We like the smaller ahips the best, preferablly Crystal and the Princendam, Holland Amnerica's small ship. We were lookinfg forward to the cruise on Regetta and booked a small suite - actually a larger cabin with veranda. The ship is beautiful. The food, which is so highly touted as "gourmet" was disappointing, even in the 2 fancy restaurants. One night in the fancy steakhouse 3 of 6 entrees were not edible. The repsonse was to offer to replace the meals - but by then, who cared. Most annoying was the Maitre D', whose response to each of the 3 passnegers was " but, was the service good". At that point, what did it matter if 3 different meals were unettable. The main dining room was hit or miss. As a result, we ate about 5 dinners at the tapas buffet, which we found to be very good . The entertainment was poor. The "singers" also worked as part of the entertainment staff. Enough said.
