Just got back from one of the finest cruises I have ever taken...and glanced at the prior reviews. Were they on the same ship because what I and others experienced was the exact opposite. In some 40 years of cursing the world from ... Read more

We recently returned from our first Oceania cruise to Alaska on the Regatta. We had previously sailed on the Marina in the Med and so had high hopes of the Regatta. Like previous reviewers we found the bathrooms pretty small with only ... Read more

Our cruise began inauspiciously with the Oceania staff at the airport having no record of our booking the cruise. But after being shown the confirmation, the response was impressive. We were guided by two employees -- one in charge of our ... Read more

Embarkation started with a one of the most ridiculous systems for any cruise line that I have ever been apart of. Just like when you were in school...you had a person telling you where to sit, when to get up and reprimanding you when you ... Read more

Drink package -- Offered at $60 per person per day -- We did not buy the package and found buying wine and drinks on an a la carte basis was more economical. We also had a wider selection of wines by the bottle than that offered by the ... Read more

We recently returned from our first Oceania cruise to Alaska. Despite having cruised in Alaska numerous times on Holland America, this cruise was one of our favorites for several reasons. First, the itinerary. While many of the ports ... Read more

While check in and boarding went off without a hitch, the rest was mediocre at best. Overall, food choice was okay, but not hot enough or seasoned . Room service from our stateroom was a chore for our steward. He seemed inconvienanced ... Read more

This was my 4th Oceania cruise, the first on one of the smaller ships. I must confess that I have been spoiled by previous voyages on Riviera. Seattle was beautiful, sunny and 84 degrees on the day we sailed. For the most part, weather ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Oceana. We wanted to check their R class ships, because we're considering their world cruise. The food was wonderful, no matter where you ate. The food service staff was also first rate. The buffet ... Read more

This was our first real cruise (did the Disney 3-day cruise in 2001 with small children - fun but mayhem in the common areas of the ship). We were able to upgrade at the last minute to an Owner's Suite and it was luxurious. We had a ... Read more

This was my 61st cruise, first with Oceania. Overall a very nice cruise, with a few glitches here and there that could be easily fixed with this line to make it nearly perfect. We flew from Washington DC to Vancouver. Our air and ... Read more

Regatta through Panama Canal Apr 23, 2015. Ship — moderate size (650+) but both the main dining room and the entertainment room could not accommodate a full shipload of passengers. On one or two nights the line was very long at ... Read more

We thoroughly enjoyed our first Oceania Cruise on-board the Regatta! I had read some of the reviews, and to be honest, wondered if we had made a mistake. The answer to that is a resounding NO!!!! From the moment we boarded the ship ... Read more
