My husband and I have done roughly a dozen cruises on various luxury lines, and I have done two others on mainstream line Holland America (including in a Neptune Suite), so the review below compares the cruise on this “upper ... Read more

Ultimately forgettable Regatta... EMBARKING: *We arrived by private car, so our arrival experience will be different than if you are arriving on a cruise arranged bus.* If arriving Seattle to park in a garage, drive to the baggage ... Read more

This cruise was organized by Michigan State University and Go Next travel. All big ten schools were included for this cruise. We enjoyed stops in Alaska and excursions planned by Go Next. We had sports dignitaries on board and enjoyed ... Read more

Cruised with friends that picked ship and itinirary. My first cruise so nothing to compare it to. Food was OK, but not up to the lofty expectations I had coming in. Never got a good steak, even hamburger meat tasted weird. My first ... Read more

Alaska has been on our bucket list and since it does involve some walking, we thought this was the right year for us to go. Plus we liked the Vancouver embarkation and Seattle ending as we wanted to spend some time in both. With three at ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Oceania. We chose this cruise for the itinerary, which was rewarding for the spectacular scenery and wildlife. The excursions were generally good. After cruising on Viking and other cruise lines, we found ... Read more

The ship decor has a lot of character with beautiful furniture and mahogony walls and trim. Lovely marble and gorgeous rugs grace the whole ship. We enjoyed the peaceful spacious surroundings with not a lot of people around as ... Read more

The service was great. Food was wonderful. Stateroom was spacious and the butler was always waiting on us. The ship was amazingly clean and well maintained. Mirshra, our butler, was amazing. We were in an Owners Suite. Whenever we left ... Read more

Past experience with Oceania and desire for Alaska cruise. As always, food was great, cabins excellent. Only criticism is that shore excursions seem significantly higher and those available elsewhere. Found there were other bridge players ... Read more

We chose Oceania Regatta because we had sailed on the Insignia last year to Australia, New Zealand, and French Polynesia. The Regatta is the sister ship. This time we introduced our friends to Oceania! This was our 2nd cruise with ... Read more

We wanted to go through the Panama Canal with a different line to have a variety of ports and experiences. I had heard good reviews of Oceania. We thought it would be a nice change. The first impression was of a classy lounge, dining ... Read more

We sailed from Montreal to London last year on Oceania's Marina and were interested in trying one of its "R" class ships. We were also looking for a RESTFUL cruise as a break from very heavy work loads lately on the jobs. This ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the convenience for us to depart and return to Miami, for Oceania's reputation for good food, and for the experience of cruising on a smaller ship than we had previously experienced. Embarkation at noon was ... Read more

We picked Oceania because friends had commented that its food was among the best of all cruise lines. That wasn't our experience, especially compared with Silver Seas. When the ship set sail from Lima, it was already loaded with sick ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Oceania, and will almost certainly be our last. We were unfortunate enough to board at a time when gastrointestinal disease had taken hold on the ship. This can happen on any ship, but the way that Oceania ... Read more

Having cruised with Oceania before for a total of 63 days on two cruises, we knew what to expect. Small cabins (even the conceriage cabins have only 165 sq ft of living area) and a buffet that is overcrowded probably half the time. ... Read more

This was a spur of the moment decision made 3-months before embarkation. A deeply discounted price and exotic destinations on the Amazon River got us to book. We were not even considering a 2017 cruise. My wife and I have been on 16 ... Read more

We had always wanted to experience the Panama Canal, and had been very satisfied with our previous cruise on the Oceania Marina. The Regatta is the smallest ship we've ever cruised, and we had an Aft Cabin (8069), so we were a little ... Read more

We disembarked 10 days early from a 17 day cruise. There were many reasons, including an expected infirmity. That limited my ability to partake in shore excursions, which meant that the ship's amenities became even more important to ... Read more

The port stops were somewhat boring--not a lot of infrastructure for visitors in Central America. However, the ship experience was outstanding. The food was truly amazing and the service was wonderful. This was our fifth cruise with ... Read more

We recently completed the 23-day Caribbean and Amazon Rivers cruise on Oceania Regatta. Our overall assessment of the cruise is that it was, in general, a good cruise. However, for the pricing, we were expecting quite a bit more. This ... 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
