Even though Oceania's pricing structure breaks down the cabin categories by type and location, there are really only eight stateroom configurations: inside, Obstructed View, Porthole, outside, balcony, Penthouse, Vista Suite and Owner's Suite.

Standard cabins -- with or without balconies -- are small, based on industry standards. They range from about 140 to 216 square feet (with balconies). Oceania has done wonders with them, in terms of getting passengers to focus less on size and more on comfort. Oceania was one of the first cruise lines to tout a branded bedding program with its patented Tranquility Bed, taking its cue, no doubt, from the Westin hotel chain's heralded Heavenly Bed.

The bathrooms in standard cabins are miniscule but do come with fluffy towels, Oceania-branded French-milled toiletries and lots of shelf space. In fact, storage in the small cabins is excellent, with a full-size closet, several drawers, a desk and shelves. Most cabins also have loveseats (some of which open to make a third berth), and all have mini-fridges, flat-screen TV's and DVD players.

Concierge-level staterooms, all on Deck 7, are actually verandah staterooms with added amenities; these rooms are identical to the balcony cabins on Deck 6. Concierge-level perks include early check-in and embarkation, a welcome bottle of Champagne, priority restaurant and shore excursion reservations, unlimited access to the thalassotherapy pool and sun deck in the spa, Internet plan discounts, use of an iPad onboard, Bulgari toiletries, a cashmere throw to use onboard, a tote bag, shoe shine service and free garment pressing on embarkation day.

Regatta really starts to shine with its Penthouse cabins, located on Deck 8. Basically the size of 1.5 staterooms (322 square feet), these feature large sitting areas and full-size baths. Owner's Suites, at about 1,000 square feet, are at the aft of the ship and include nifty wraparound decks. Vista Suites (786 square feet) are at the front and are prized for their sweeping, forward views. Both types have individual bedrooms and sitting rooms. Suites sell out first, often within hours of an itinerary being announced. Suite passengers above concierge level get the services of a team of specially trained butlers, daily hors d'oeuvres, in-suite dining from any of the dining room menus, priority embarkation and debarkation, a free in-suite bar setup, use of a laptop, a Bulgari gift set and, where offered, priority tender service.

   Cabin 7107
September 2013
Regatta A3-7107-aft All of regatta's rooms are smaller that on larger ships .... even smaller than on Oceania's newer, larger ships. BUT they ARE "as advertised". Very quiet. Slight shudder during reverse or hard turns. Closet space for hanging is barely adequate, but...continue

Vista Suite has a great view and is very nice, but is not accessible and is somewhat cramped. (I read this will be rectified in the upcoming dry dock)

Once we became accustomed to the size of the cabin, we had no problem storing everything. There were problems however, when we have to take turns using the bathroom because two of us barely fit in.
