Oceania Regatta: Slow Cruising

We're docked at St. John's Antigua today and stepped back on land for the first time since Sunday.

Regatta has some kind of mechanical problem that prevents it from sailing at full speed. That, combined with some bumpy weather that made us all too aware of being in a forward cabin, prevented the ship from arriving on time at its first port yesterday. In fact, it didn't anchor until around 1:00 pm and people were still waiting to catch a tender ashore at 2:40 so we skipped it and stayed on board.

As for the cruise itself, our suite is lovely and the best part is that we can order food from any of the dining rooms as room service. Last night, for example, we enjoyed whole Maine Lobster from Polo Grill.

We're playing Team Trivia and table tennis, and trying to walk off some of the food with strolls around the ship but it'll be another battle we'll have to deal with when we return home. Today is Thanksgiving but we'll be enjoying it Italian-style in Toscana Restaurant.

There's another tender stop tomorrow and we'll probably stay aboard again. It's hard to believe we're already halfway through our cruise.
