Ship Facts: Regatta Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Regatta Deck Plans
Regatta - Northern Europe
Booked Oceania as it was deemed to be the next level of luxury up from the standard lines (as the price would also encourage you to believe). Ship is nicely decorated, but nothing that special - pretty standard. Service is excellent, this is one well trained staff.

Oceania prides itself on having some of the best food on the sea and you will not be disappointed. The 2 specialty restaurants (that most cruises charge a fee to eat at) are complimentary on this ship.

Booze is on the pricier side and the excursions are also outrageous. On our ship, most people were doing their own touring because the excursions were so overpriced.

As advertised, this is an older set on the boa,t but definitely a better behaved one than on most lines.

This 14-day itinerary is strong, but has some weak points. Three days in St. Petersburg is probably one too many and Gdansk, Poland and Warnemunde, Germany are not real highlights unless you do expensive tours to other parts of the country. Copenhagen, Belgium and Finland are all great stops.

The cruiseline will not do a good job of advising you of this, but if you want to tour St. Petersburg on your own (without paying $150/pp for day excursions), you need to have your own Russian visa ahead of time.

All in all, a good cruise, but does not live up to the value.
