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

We sailed Oceania Regatta for 10 days Seattle to Seattle on the June 15, 2015 cruise. We have cruised more than 40 times, most frequently on Seabourn, Silversea, Crystal and Regent. We have wanted to try Oceania, and this was our first ... 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

This was our first cruise with Oceana. We wanted to check their R class ships, because we're considering their world cruise. The food was wonderful, no matter where you ate. The food service staff was also first rate. The buffet ... Read more

This was our first real cruise (did the Disney 3-day cruise in 2001 with small children - fun but mayhem in the common areas of the ship). We were able to upgrade at the last minute to an Owner's Suite and it was luxurious. We had a ... Read more

This was my 61st cruise, first with Oceania. Overall a very nice cruise, with a few glitches here and there that could be easily fixed with this line to make it nearly perfect. We flew from Washington DC to Vancouver. Our air and ... Read more

Started our holiday with 5 nights in San Francisco and had a late boarding due to uncontrollable circumstances. Having cruised with Oceania before we expected a great experience and weren't disappointed. The food (in our opinion) is ... Read more

We are Crystal devotees, so it was with some trepidation that we signed up for an Alaska cruise with Oceania. We had heard a lot of good things...and some so-so...but the itinerary was what appealed to us, and other lines' Alaska cruises ... Read more

Having previously traveled on other smaller luxury cruise lines, I think our standards and expectations were set too high. From what we had heard, Oceania is a good, mid level luxury cruise line so we had a certain level of expectation. ... Read more

I'll start by saying this was my 15th cruise so, while not as experienced as many Member Reviewers, I think I have a pretty strong foundation from which to impartially and fairly review my cruise experiences. That said, I think the title ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

We chose Oceania because we'd sailed with them two years ago in the Western Mediterranean on Marina. The Regatta is about half the size, and we liked the style and intimacy of the ship. The cabins are smaller than those on Marina, but we ... Read more

Here is a brief review of our July 12-22 ten day Seattle - Alaska cruise on the Oceania Regatta. Let me make it clear from the outset that, although I think their "focus" on the food is overrated (I'll elaborate later), nothing about this ... Read more

My wife and I decided to go on a cruise to Alaska to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, so the first question was, which cruise line? I know someone very high up at Disney Cruise Lines and was looking for a specific date and a ... Read more
