We chose this itinerary because it left from a port 25 minutes from our home. We were glad we chose Oceania to take us to Alaska! The size of the Regatta was perfect for us and there was absolutely no nickel and dimeing as there is on Holland America. (Our last cruise was on Holland America and we agreed it would be nice our last on that line. It was a miserable cruise experience, with the exception of the wonderful Cruise Critic passengers we met.) The Regatta is an older ship, but the decor is kept in tip-too shape. (We saw one of the Housekeeping inspectors with a white glove checking for cleanliness.) The food was excellent, the room attendants kept our balcony stateroom spotless. Many on CC have noted that the rooms are small, but we felt they were adequate and comfortable. Yes, the bathrooms are small, but highly efficient and because of the thoughtful design we never had water from the shower spill onto the bathroom floor! We look forward to our next Oceania cruise, however we wish they had accessible balcony staterooms.

Nice small ship with excellent service
