May 22, 2018

The cruise ship Oceania Regatta is slowly sailing to the final destination in San Francisco, California. Scheduled arrival was delayed from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. due to many problems the ship was facing.

To start there was one hour delayed arrival in Havana, Cuba after the ship faced technical problems. On May 10, the vessel canceled the scheduled stop in Cartagena, Colombia and was anchored just outside the port due to propulsion problems. Technical personnel boarded the vessel and tried to fix the problem. However the problems persisted during the cruise and San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua was canceled due to protests and security reasons. The following day there was a Gastro Outbreak onboard with red code and 18 people were in quarantine. Oceania Regatta 8 a.m. scheduled arrival in San Francisco was postponed to 10 a.m. because of bad weather. Later because of Navy exercises in the region, the ships route needed to be adjusted and the new arrival time was set at 2 p.m. today.

“In my 15 years’ experience as a crew member, this must be the worst cruise ship and the worst cruise ever. There was one problem after another. Anything that can go wrong it did, during this cruise.” says one crew member.
