We chose this Alaska cruise on the Regatta for a few reasons - generally good reviews and reputation of the cruise line, the itinerary, and the excellent deal we got from our travel agent. We absolutely loved it! Only our 2nd cruise and ... Read more

Excellent everything except cabin, Bathroom so small could barely enter and shower was a joke. 95% of passengers couldn't fit because of age or their size. Common areas were cozy, beautiful and inviting. Food in any venue was gourmet. ... Read more

We enjoy cruising Alaska more than any other destination and just completed 9 with this trip. We cruised on the Regatta in June doing a Seattle roundtrip. Embarkation was a breeze and we were onboard within 15 minutes. For the entire ... Read more

We are seasoned cruisers, more than 50 on 7 different lines but this was our first AND LAST on Oceania. The line brags about its food, service and atmosphere. Perhaps one or more of their executive staff should actually board Regatta ... Read more

Chose the Regatta / Oceania cruise because of the date and destination; my dear mother has always wanted to go on an Alaska cruise, so I treated her to her first cruise. Oceania's Regatta is a lovely, smaller ship (650+ passengers, ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Oceania and we were looking forward to it greatly. We have taken 20 previous cruises, mostly with Celebrity and Azamara, though with all the other major lines except Norwegian as well. We receive about 3 pieces ... Read more

This was an excellent cruise with many positives and very few negatives. It was in high demand and overbooked. We were astonished to hear the offers some people received to cancel and rebook a future cruise. We had a concierge level ... Read more

I like smaller ships and have always wanted to go through the Panama Canal. A friend found this 16 day cruise that began in Miami and ended up in our home port of San Francisco with dates that worked for us. We found the ship to be very ... Read more

Judging from the reviews and boards of Cruise Critic at least, It’s not been a good year so far for Oceania with all of the norovirus on RIVIERA and continued worry or real experiences that “things aren’t the same” ... Read more

This was our 7th Oceania cruise and 5th time on the Regatta. It was quite wonderful, as always and most of the ports were interesting. The entertainment seems better now that NCL has taken over and the service is what we have come to ... Read more

We booked this cruise with very high expectations, given Oceania's reputation as a "step above" the other cruise lines and the price point. Unfortunately, this cruise was a disappointment; almost from day one. I hope other ... Read more

We had previously cruised twice with Oceania and were quite satisfied. This time was a disaster! Half the crew didn't speak English so most of the service was poor. They lost our luggage on the ship and claimed they had four people ... Read more
