This was our first Oceania cruise- and we're glad we did! I have been hearing about how great Oceania was from friends for several years, but we have become quite partial to our familiar Celebrity. We've also cruised with Seabourne, and ... Read more

We chose the sailing because it was one of the few offerings going to Manaus on The Amazon River and because Oceania was offering major inducements as they were not full. We ended up with only about 489 passengers, which resulted in a high ... Read more

The ship was very nice, it was our first small ship experience. We had a Balcony Stateroom which was the same size as we had on other cruises. The Bathroom and the shower were too small and not very functional. You had to sit on ... Read more

We prefer slightly smaller ships but in the same or better class. This was our first exposure to Oceania and we were comparing this experience to Seabourn. The ship was very nice and the Penthouse Suite was just a bit larger than the ... Read more

We were a little suspect of Oceania since we had been inundated by marketing material since we booked our cruise - back in March. But we enjoyed it very much. The Regatta is the perfect sized ship - easy to get around, you didn't have to ... Read more

Well the Owners Suite 8064 was fabulous. There were several bad reviews of these suites right under the Terrace Cafe on deck 9.. because of the tables and chairs scraping on the floor above but since the retrofit in 2014 they must have ... Read more

We wanted to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with a special trip. After exploring other options, we found ourselves gravitating towards Oceania for the smaller ships and excellent cuisine. The itinerary for this cruise had some ... Read more

The cabin was incredible. Way more luxurious and roomier than the photos show. The media room was the hangout place for the wife and I, as they had every movie and TV show you could want on their DVR. This cabin is supposedly the third ... Read more

We booked this cruise because of the ports and Jacques Pepin would be on board. We upgraded to a marvelous Owners suite--8th floor. I didn't like we were on the 8th floor at first, but once in suite, it was glorious and contrary to other ... Read more

I chose this cruise line due its reputation for providing the finest cuisine at sea, and its reputed service provided by the high crew to staff ratio. We sailed from Piraeus Greece to Dubai on a 20 day cruise and were really looking ... Read more

We very much enjoyed our 28 day cruise on the Sirena. This was our 18th sea cruise and one of the best for entertainment, cuisine, enrichment and the lovely people on board. It is evident everywhere that Oceania have thoroughly refurbished ... Read more

We chose this cruise because the Amazon river was on our bucket list and because of the cuisine aboard Oceania. We were a little bit hesitant because of initial reviews of Sirena suggested that the refit from Princess left something to ... Read more

Our travel agent suggested Oceania's Riviera for a sister's cruise, and we are so very happy she did! We didn't have cruising experience to which to compare, but we DO know quality and service. The Riviera provided these at every turn. The ... Read more

We'd been with Oceania just once before, when Marina was new to the company, and were far from impressed by the poor levels of service, so vowed to give the company a miss! As we had cancelled a cruise with another 6* line, we decided to ... Read more

This was our 20th cruise and we considered their cuisine THE FINEST ON SEA or LAND!! The dinners in the Grand Dining Room, Tuscan and Red Ginger rivaled ANY and ALL High-end restaurants in NYC. The servers were OUTSTANDING! Very friendly ... Read more
