Ship Facts: Regatta Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Regatta Deck Plans
Great Service - Great Food - Misleading Advertising

After about three dozen cruises over the past 40 years we took our first cruise on Oceania's Regatta. The service was excellent. We have never had such attention from staff on any of our previous cruises. My wife who has a brand-new hip was experiencing some difficulty walking and the solicitousness and care and concern of the staff just blew us away.

Food was also excellent and we certainly appreciated the ability to dine at will and decide whether we would share or eat privately. We did both and managed to thoroughly enjoy every meal onboard.

The one shocking disappointment was when we walked into the cabin on embarkation day. We had seen the size of the cabin in the advertising brochure, but did not realize that the figures published also included the balcony. So when we walked into the cabin we thought we were in the wrong place. We could live with the smaller cabins as long as we know that that's what we will be getting.

Overall however the experience was so positive, then we have now booked a spring trip on the Riviera. Here at least, the rooms are larger and we will be prepared for subtracting balcony size.
