Sail Date: Jun 2018
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean View

This was wife and my first cruise on Oceania’s Regata. The entire experience was a delight. Our stateroom, a deluxe ocean view cabin, was comfortable and maintained perfectly by our cabin steward. The food was amazing—all the food—in every restaurant and dining room. The Grill offered not only the usual burgers and hot dogs, but also lobster and filet mignon! The service was extraordinary, in the bars/lounges, dining room, and on deck. There wasn’t a single ship’s photographer aboard which we found refreshing after running the gauntlet of photographers on other cruise ships we’ve sailed on. The entertainment was great, especially the fantastic string quartet that performed several times each afternoon and evening. The Regatta herself was a little jewel box, with elegant/comfortable furniture, beautiful artwork, wood paneling, and soaring domes over the elegant staircases. We were hoping that we wouldn’t enjoy the cruise much more than on one of the larger ships we’ve always sailed on previously. Instead, because we enjoyed it so much, we’ve already booked another cruise on Oceania’s Insignia. If you like smaller scale cruising on an elegant ship with superb food and service, the Regatta’s your ship!

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View

Cabin C2

Our cabin, a deluxe ocean view, was comfortable and quiet. There was some noise and vibration whenever the bow thrusters were used docking or undocking the ship. It never bothered us. The bathroom was small but well designed with a surprising amount of storage.
