A great trip with wonderful service and food

Sail Date: June 2016
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: Seattle
Our overall experience was excellent. Of particular note were the high quality, competence, and helpfulness of the staff, who were all very personable. The food was excellent. Tour excursions were well done. Entertainment was good if not outstanding. We particularly enjoyed the string quartet. Some people complain about the smallness of the cabins on Regatta and, particularly, the bathrooms. We found them to be serviceable and have not complaints.

Embarkation and disembarkation both at the start and the end of the cruise and at the various ports was very smooth. Indeed, we never encountered long waits for anything during the 12 days.

Some people we met did run into logistical problems. In one case, a couple signed up for a tour on a hop-on hop-off bus. They could not get the tickets and leave the ship until some time after they wanted to. There was no reason for this, and they would have done better to not buy the tour through the ship. In More another case, a group that did a pre-cruise trip arranged through Oceania was not picked up at the Seattle airport as planned and, I was told, was on hold for 45 minutes on the Oceania hot line, delaying the departure of the ship. This latter was the most severe criticism I heard. The constant marketing of future cruises was also a minor annoyance. I would also have liked a couple of lectures of Alaska history and culture.

Cabin review: A27091 Concierge Level Veranda Stateroom

Cabin was a little small but very comfortable. The wooden furniture was a little beat-up; something that a furniture refinisher could correct at low cost. Not a big deal.
