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

Started our holiday with 5 nights in San Francisco and had a late boarding due to uncontrollable circumstances. Having cruised with Oceania before we expected a great experience and weren't disappointed. The food (in our opinion) is ... 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

This was a first Oceania cruise for after more than 10 on other lines. We enjoyed the upscale lounging and gathering areas, but found the guest entertainment mediocre for the most part. The staff entertainment was always good. Enjoyed ... Read more

We recently traveled to South America on Oceania's Regatta. This is the 4th time we have been on this ship and will travel again on it. We had a P2 and loved the space and the balcony. The couch was a bit bigger for us and we do stay in ... Read more

From the captain to our room stewardess we couldn't have found a friendlier group of people to sail with. It seemed as though about the time you thought of a need, someone was already in motion to take care of it. The food was absolutely ... Read more

Amazon Odyssey This was our fifth Oceania cruise, third on Regatta. The average age of the passengers on this cruise appeared to be a little older than the Oceania norm; this might have been because it was a fairly long one. Things ... Read more

A country girl at my core, I grew up without a lot of pampering. Much later in my life I was wined and dined and began to experience ‘the finer things’. But still I’ve always said I neither need nor want what I laughingly ... Read more

Have sailed six previous times with Regent, Princess and Seabourn. We are a little younger than the crowd on board at 57 & 61 years of age. Embarkment went well, but the pick-up from the airport was in a dirty crowded mini-van. The ... Read more

We are Crystal devotees, so it was with some trepidation that we signed up for an Alaska cruise with Oceania. We had heard a lot of good things...and some so-so...but the itinerary was what appealed to us, and other lines' Alaska cruises ... Read more

Having previously traveled on other smaller luxury cruise lines, I think our standards and expectations were set too high. From what we had heard, Oceania is a good, mid level luxury cruise line so we had a certain level of expectation. ... Read more

There are not enough superlatives to describe our 10-day cruise on Oceania Regatta to Alaska. The quality of service would have made a five star hotel anywhere in the world envious. This was a cruise for foodies as every meal onboard was a ... Read more
