We chose Oceania Regatta because we had sailed on the Insignia last year to Australia, New Zealand, and French Polynesia. The Regatta is the sister ship. This time we introduced our friends to Oceania! This was our 2nd cruise with ... Read more

We wanted to go through the Panama Canal with a different line to have a variety of ports and experiences. I had heard good reviews of Oceania. We thought it would be a nice change. The first impression was of a classy lounge, dining ... Read more

We sailed from Montreal to London last year on Oceania's Marina and were interested in trying one of its "R" class ships. We were also looking for a RESTFUL cruise as a break from very heavy work loads lately on the jobs. This ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the convenience for us to depart and return to Miami, for Oceania's reputation for good food, and for the experience of cruising on a smaller ship than we had previously experienced. Embarkation at noon was ... Read more

We picked Oceania because friends had commented that its food was among the best of all cruise lines. That wasn't our experience, especially compared with Silver Seas. When the ship set sail from Lima, it was already loaded with sick ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Oceania, and will almost certainly be our last. We were unfortunate enough to board at a time when gastrointestinal disease had taken hold on the ship. This can happen on any ship, but the way that Oceania ... Read more

We chose this cruise for its itinerary. But it turned out to be disaster. Ship came back from Ushuaia and Machu Pichu infected with GI problems and influenza. Passengers were quarantined in their cabins and ship was supposingly being fully ... Read more

Having cruised with Oceania before for a total of 63 days on two cruises, we knew what to expect. Small cabins (even the conceriage cabins have only 165 sq ft of living area) and a buffet that is overcrowded probably half the time. ... Read more

This was a spur of the moment decision made 3-months before embarkation. A deeply discounted price and exotic destinations on the Amazon River got us to book. We were not even considering a 2017 cruise. My wife and I have been on 16 ... Read more

Chose this cruise line because if it's sister company Regent who we have been with before and loved. Decided to have a change but it was a mistake. No less expensive taking everything into account that we spent and definitely a star ... Read more

We had always wanted to experience the Panama Canal, and had been very satisfied with our previous cruise on the Oceania Marina. The Regatta is the smallest ship we've ever cruised, and we had an Aft Cabin (8069), so we were a little ... Read more

We disembarked 10 days early from a 17 day cruise. There were many reasons, including an expected infirmity. That limited my ability to partake in shore excursions, which meant that the ship's amenities became even more important to ... Read more

The port stops were somewhat boring--not a lot of infrastructure for visitors in Central America. However, the ship experience was outstanding. The food was truly amazing and the service was wonderful. This was our fifth cruise with ... Read more

We recently completed the 23-day Caribbean and Amazon Rivers cruise on Oceania Regatta. Our overall assessment of the cruise is that it was, in general, a good cruise. However, for the pricing, we were expecting quite a bit more. This ... Read more

We chose the sailing because it was one of the few offerings going to Manaus on The Amazon River and because Oceania was offering major inducements as they were not full. We ended up with only about 489 passengers, which resulted in a high ... Read more

The ship was very nice, it was our first small ship experience. We had a Balcony Stateroom which was the same size as we had on other cruises. The Bathroom and the shower were too small and not very functional. You had to sit on ... Read more

We were a little suspect of Oceania since we had been inundated by marketing material since we booked our cruise - back in March. But we enjoyed it very much. The Regatta is the perfect sized ship - easy to get around, you didn't have to ... Read more

Well the Owners Suite 8064 was fabulous. There were several bad reviews of these suites right under the Terrace Cafe on deck 9.. because of the tables and chairs scraping on the floor above but since the retrofit in 2014 they must have ... Read more

This was our second Oceania cruise. We had really enjoyed the Regatta when we sailed on a 7-night Alaska cruise (RT out of Seattle) in July of 2014, liked the itinerary (Montreal to Miami), and even booked the same stern cabin (7121). We ... Read more

Embarkation was so easy in Seattle. Literally walk on at noon and head for a great lunch outside. Rooms were not ready until 3 PM. Little did I know that would be the last time I would enjoy food out of doors. The next morning we got up ... Read more
