Ship Facts: Regatta Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Regatta Deck Plans
Good and Bad
Our boarding experience in Istanbul was excellent, priority boarding and no delays. The penthouse cabin was clean and extremely comfortable with ample room and a well furnished balcony.Janus our butler was swiftly at our side to introduce himself and accommodated our requests with speed and a smile. During our two back to back cruises he proved to be an exceptional butler and nothing was any trouble, with many little extra touches.

The food and service was very good in the main restaurant and excellent in the specialty restaurants. The Restaurant managers deserve special mention for excellance.

However, the cost of wines was outrageous. We cruise a great deal and Oceania were charging more for average wines than higher rated ships charge for their fine wines! Not acceptable.

Luckily we only booked one tour with Oceania, most of which consisted of being taken to places where we could shop! Total waste of time. Many passengers stopped doing overpriced ships tours and got together and organised their own.

The standard of the lecturerers was excellent and the cooking demonstrations wasworth attending.

Oceania are letting themselves down in their costings and of course everything is plus eighteen percent service charge. They run a good ship but many people felt they were being overcharged for all the extras. including the internet which again was more expensive than most other lines.

Will we return? No. We will return to all inclusive cruising which is not much more expensive when you take into account all the overpriced extras.
