Cruise Critic Review

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

We arrived in Miami the day before, we always arrange our own flights. Arriving at the terminal on embarkation day it was quiet and relaxed as normal, no hustle and bustle at the Oceania terminal. Very smooth operation to get us on board, ... 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 boarded the boat in Rio, after a delay to sanitize the ship. We did receive an email with the delay in boarding the day before and managed to check our bags and take the tour we arranged. We were given sandwiches and lemonade while we ... Read more

We booked this cruise from Buenos Aires to Rio De Janeiro because we wanted to see these 2 cities, and to visit Brazil and of course to sail on Regatta again. We had had such a fantastic time on our previous cruise on board her. However ... Read more

We were quite disappointed with this cruise, as we have cruised Oceania a few times in the past and have always loved our stay on board. We joined the ship in Buenos Aires and sailed to Rio de Janeiro . To be fair, the ship had an ... 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

We boarded the Regatta in Lima for a 33 night cruise to Rio de Janeiro. I was lucky to have had the chance to use the Launderette during the first few days before it was closed for the rest of the cruise due to a GI outbreak. On the ... Read more

The cruise with Oceania from Lima to Buenos Aires showed what an array of overprices and rip-offs they could envision. As a single traveller, I had to pay the same amount as two people thereby paying double for all my meals - assuming they ... Read more

My wife has always wanted to experience Macho Pico and the cruise sounded unusual, the cruise line was highly rated so we booked. The Macho Pico add-on was a huge rip off. Due to the altitude, I couldn't go so she went single. Cost ... Read more

We also had the misfortune to be on the Regatta for 21days from Lima to Buenos Aires. I totally agree with burdock's review but doubt that I will be as kind and forgiving to Oceania and how this GI outbreak was handled. First...we ... Read more

As a younger cruiser you may find this cruise a bit sedate. Two of our more "active" excursions were cancelled due to lack of interest because most of the people on this cruise line are older. This is my third Oceania cruise and ... Read more

We really looked forward to this cruise as our friends and family led us to believe once we went on Oceania we would never go back to Celebrity or Royal Caribbean where we had 25plus cruises. They told us of the elegance of service and ... Read more

We began this cruise at Miami, the embarkation procedures went very smoothly, but it seems odd to let people board at noon knowing full well their staterooms are two hours away from being ready, why not hold boarding. This was my third ... Read more
