I wanted just to get away and see something that I hadn't seen before. We did a pre-cruise to Machu Picchu and it was awesome! On board the ship was small and intimate. There was a variety of dining areas that were included in the ... Read more

We had been to the Galápagos and Peru and wanted to go home by ship. We had been on the Nautica the previous year for a back to back that took us away from home for 2 months. My opinion is that even though the Marina is larger, ... Read more

We booked this cruise from Buenos Aires to Rio De Janeiro because we wanted to see these 2 cities, and to visit Brazil and of course to sail on Regatta again. We had had such a fantastic time on our previous cruise on board her. However ... Read more

We were quite disappointed with this cruise, as we have cruised Oceania a few times in the past and have always loved our stay on board. We joined the ship in Buenos Aires and sailed to Rio de Janeiro . To be fair, the ship had an ... Read more

We had previously cruised twice with Oceania and were quite satisfied. This time was a disaster! Half the crew didn't speak English so most of the service was poor. They lost our luggage on the ship and claimed they had four people ... Read more

We boarded the Regatta in Lima for a 33 night cruise to Rio de Janeiro. I was lucky to have had the chance to use the Launderette during the first few days before it was closed for the rest of the cruise due to a GI outbreak. On the ... Read more

The cruise with Oceania from Lima to Buenos Aires showed what an array of overprices and rip-offs they could envision. As a single traveller, I had to pay the same amount as two people thereby paying double for all my meals - assuming they ... Read more

My wife has always wanted to experience Macho Pico and the cruise sounded unusual, the cruise line was highly rated so we booked. The Macho Pico add-on was a huge rip off. Due to the altitude, I couldn't go so she went single. Cost ... Read more

We also had the misfortune to be on the Regatta for 21days from Lima to Buenos Aires. I totally agree with burdock's review but doubt that I will be as kind and forgiving to Oceania and how this GI outbreak was handled. First...we ... Read more

I purposely waited 5 days to write this review because I felt I could write a better review after I rested up from the long trip back. Unfortunately, that has not happened, so here goes! First, the ship is beautiful, the crew was great ... Read more

First time on Oceania, but will be the last because they did not live up to "consistently delivering excellent service and value", as they state. The Marina ship was very nice and the service on board was fine. We found the ... Read more
