When Oceania Cruises launched in 2003 its first ship was 694-passenger Regatta. If the cruise line was brand new, Regatta itself was not, even then. It had been built by Renaissance Cruises and debuted five ...

We have always wanted to see Alaska and this was a great choice for us. We flew from Atlanta and chose to have all transfers and trips pre-planned which worked perfectly. We embarked at noon and had lunch at their wonderful buffet ... Read more

Oceania has a great reputation for treating cruisers well. Indeed the service was exceptional, food superb, and the Alaska destination just fine. We took the little train in from SEATAC which cost $6 versus $40 + tip for a taxi. It was ... Read more

We chose this line because of the itinerary and length. We had visited Alaska before, but not Wrangell or Sitka. Embarkation was extremely quick. We did, however, have to wait until 3:00 pm to enter our cabin. This wasn't much of ... Read more

We have been on only two ocean cruise (but 5 river cruises) and both on the Regatta. I imagine there are better ships out there (i.e. Regent level) that could be worth all 5 stars but for our tastes, the Regatta is just fine and would ... Read more

Have been wanting to go on an Oceania cruise for several years and I must say Regatta did not disappoint in any way! From embarkation to disembarkation and everything in-between the cruise was perfect. We boarded early and since we ... Read more

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

This cruise was a anniversary gift to ourselves as we both have wanted to go on an Alaskan cruise. We work with a travel agent who guided us to Oceania, when she understood our desires for something small and somewhat casual yet luxurious. ... Read more

This was our second cruise on Oceania. First one was fabulous, this one we couldn't wait to get off of the boat. With a few exceptions, mostly poor service in Grand dining room, and in Terrace Café. The main problem with this ... Read more

We had previously sailed on Oceania's Marina. We appreciated the smaller size of the Regatta but otherwise found Marina much more to our liking. Regatta's staff overall ( there were some exceptions) seemed much younger, less experienced ... 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 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
