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

We chose this cruise because we wanted to go in a less crowded ship. Before, we've sailed in larger ships of about 2500 passengers. We really enjoyed less people aboard, more tranquility. Athens is really a very interesting place to ... Read more

We chose this cruise mainly because of the itinerary, but also because we had heard good things about the Oceania line. Let me preface this review by saying it was the most expensive cruise we had ever booked! We looked forward to this ... Read more

Its an excellent value for the money compared to may upscale cruises. Everything first rate and staff could not do enough. Some of the excursions just okay but still fantastic. I'd rather they gave less excursions but better ones! The ... Read more

This is a cruise for more discerning foodies who want quality, service and luxury and don’t want to be herded along with thousands of other passengers on a monster ship. After reading other reviews below, two alarm bells rang in ... Read more

Overall great cruise. We went at the end of May and the weather was perfect -- hot during the day, sunny, and pleasant at night. Food is fantastic on the Sirena and there's a good choice of on-board restaurants and dining venues. ... Read more

My husband and I chose this cruise because of the advertised reputation of Oceania and because it embarked in Venice, which was a place we wanted to return to, and it had a stop in Antibes that would allow us to see the French Riviera for ... Read more

We were somewhat sceptical taking this cruise, due to an unpleasant experience on another cruise line. Friends sailed with Oceania about two years ago and assured us we would enjoy it. Oceania did not disappoint. The food is great, and ... Read more

Just returned last night from a 12 night Mediterranean cruise on the Riviera. Overall the cruise was excellent. Ports of call were a great variety and a couple were hidden gems that I would never have considered visiting previously. ... Read more

Our first Oceania cruise and sadly our last. For the following reasons: The Nautica did have good food, some of the best we've had on a cruise ship. The service was OK but it was very slow at several of our meals in the main dining ... Read more

We had a Penthouse Balcony Suite and the closet space and bathroom space were excellent. The Butler service was a nice perk, but we were somewhat disappointed that the laundry pressing was very limited to 3 garments each. We would also ... Read more

The Riviera cruise (Oceania) was very satisfying on a number of levels, because of what they call ‘enrichment experiences’. On a culinary level, there is a choice between speciality restaurants serving some exceptional food ... Read more

We have cruised many times with mid-size ships primarily on Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Princess and wanted to see if we'd enjoy the "lite" luxury of Oceania. Pros: Small ship experience, no crowds. No art sales, photos & ... Read more
