We chose this Alaska cruise on the Regatta for a few reasons - generally good reviews and reputation of the cruise line, the itinerary, and the excellent deal we got from our travel agent. We absolutely loved it! Only our 2nd cruise and ... Read more

Excellent everything except cabin, Bathroom so small could barely enter and shower was a joke. 95% of passengers couldn't fit because of age or their size. Common areas were cozy, beautiful and inviting. Food in any venue was gourmet. ... Read more

This cruise was a anniversary gift to ourselves as we both have wanted to go on an Alaskan cruise. We work with a travel agent who guided us to Oceania, when she understood our desires for something small and somewhat casual yet luxurious. ... Read more

We had previously sailed on Oceania's Marina. We appreciated the smaller size of the Regatta but otherwise found Marina much more to our liking. Regatta's staff overall ( there were some exceptions) seemed much younger, less experienced ... Read more

We enjoy cruising Alaska more than any other destination and just completed 9 with this trip. We cruised on the Regatta in June doing a Seattle roundtrip. Embarkation was a breeze and we were onboard within 15 minutes. For the entire ... Read more

We are seasoned cruisers, more than 50 on 7 different lines but this was our first AND LAST on Oceania. The line brags about its food, service and atmosphere. Perhaps one or more of their executive staff should actually board Regatta ... Read more

Chose the Regatta / Oceania cruise because of the date and destination; my dear mother has always wanted to go on an Alaska cruise, so I treated her to her first cruise. Oceania's Regatta is a lovely, smaller ship (650+ passengers, ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Oceania and we were looking forward to it greatly. We have taken 20 previous cruises, mostly with Celebrity and Azamara, though with all the other major lines except Norwegian as well. We receive about 3 pieces ... Read more

We have sailed twice before with Oceania - once in the Mediterranean on Insignia's inaugural cruise and in 2013 on Marina's 14 day cruise of the Baltic. Other than that, we travel independently and recently lived outside of the US for ... Read more

This was our first cruise (my sister and I). The cruise far exceeded our expectations. The boarding process could not have gone faster. The dining was wonderful. A wide variety of cuisines, wonderful taste and attentive service. The ... Read more

Having had a very poor cruise earlier in the year on Azamara Journey, just out of refit, and with high expectations having become accustomed to excellent cruises with Seabourn and Windstar, we were a little apprehensive about trying ... Read more

Just got back from one of the finest cruises I have ever taken...and glanced at the prior reviews. Were they on the same ship because what I and others experienced was the exact opposite. In some 40 years of cursing the world from ... Read more

We recently returned from our first Oceania cruise to Alaska on the Regatta. We had previously sailed on the Marina in the Med and so had high hopes of the Regatta. Like previous reviewers we found the bathrooms pretty small with only ... Read more

Our cruise began inauspiciously with the Oceania staff at the airport having no record of our booking the cruise. But after being shown the confirmation, the response was impressive. We were guided by two employees -- one in charge of our ... Read more

Embarkation started with a one of the most ridiculous systems for any cruise line that I have ever been apart of. Just like when you were in school...you had a person telling you where to sit, when to get up and reprimanding you when you ... Read more

Drink package -- Offered at $60 per person per day -- We did not buy the package and found buying wine and drinks on an a la carte basis was more economical. We also had a wider selection of wines by the bottle than that offered by the ... Read more

We recently returned from our first Oceania cruise to Alaska. Despite having cruised in Alaska numerous times on Holland America, this cruise was one of our favorites for several reasons. First, the itinerary. While many of the ports ... Read more

While check in and boarding went off without a hitch, the rest was mediocre at best. Overall, food choice was okay, but not hot enough or seasoned . Room service from our stateroom was a chore for our steward. He seemed inconvienanced ... Read more

This was my 4th Oceania cruise, the first on one of the smaller ships. I must confess that I have been spoiled by previous voyages on Riviera. Seattle was beautiful, sunny and 84 degrees on the day we sailed. For the most part, weather ... Read more

When we booked this cruise, was not quite sure what to expect. Although we have had numerous cruises on other ships this was our first time on a smaller, luxury ship and was worried about the entertainment and activities. Things turned ... Read more
