Sail Date: June 2014
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: Seattle

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 gourmet experience. For 675 passengers there were 66 chefs, and the only thing that was not prepared fresh daily were the milk, eggs, and butter. The night life was excellent as there was something for all ages and interests. The attention to detail by the cruise director, Ray Carr, was superb.

The ship recently underwent a major refurbishing and it was spotless. After a couple of tender excursions, the crew were out polishing the brass propellers to make them shine. At the Hubbard Glacier, the captain parallel parked the ship to ensure everyone had a spectacular view. The atmosphere was that of a happy family, and the staff and crew were there to ensure your vacation was the epitome of pleasure and enjoyment.

If you are More contemplating a cruise, look nowhere beyond Oceania anywhere in the world. I have been onboard other ships from other ocean lines, and they do not compare to the quality of Oceania. Less
