Average on Oceania Regatta

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Regatta

McRobbie
6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

This was our first cruise with Oceania and a small ship. It was great we could stop at places that larger ships do not visit. Staff and food were really excellent, but the entertainment was not as good or varied as a bigger ship can provide. Our cabin was on Level 7 (A1Concierge Veranda) and it was disappointing to discover our hand basin was cracked, the soap dish was badly chipped and then ...

Falls short of the mark

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Regatta

Underwhelmed1
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Oceania bills itself as luxury cruising with gourmet dining. It misses both those marks by lack of attention to the details that separate luxury from everyday. The very first impression is when you are checked in. Instead of entering into a beautiful lobby, you are herded into the back door by the Regatta Lounge. Instead of actually going into the lounge, a staff member briefs a group on the life ...

Not quite the Oceania I once knew

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Regatta

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We are long time Oceania aficionados, and were very much looking forward to this cruise from Singapore to Sydney. The Regatta is a small ship (and I mention this as a plus) which was last refurbished in 2019. While I have no complaints about the condition of the ship, it does not have the "wow" factor many people are looking for while cruising. My biggest complaint is the unfortunate decline ...

It’s not the best food at sea!!

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Regatta

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

Hey there, It took me a while to write this review as I had to calm down and make sure I was in the right frame of mind to write my review. For those of you that are diehard Oceania cruiser’s, sorry but you’re truly missing the boat. I planned my cruise for almost a full year as it was a Bucket list cruise (can never afford to do this Cruise again). Sydney to the South Pacific, wish I could say it ...

Australia and New Zealand had been on my bucket list forever. I decided to upgrade my cruise experience and take this trip on Oceania. The cruise was a disappointment. It started when we came to board and we’re told we had to vivid test even though we had gotten an email 2 weeks earlier that we did not have to test. Mass confusion for the next three hours. The bathroom in the cabin was tiny. ...

Finest Cuisine at Sea - NOT

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Regatta

ray wilkinson
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We were anticipating a culinary experience which we had not done before and hoped to learn on the things we had missed out on in the past. We thought we would give you our thoughts about this cruise. Our first impression of the ship when we embarked was "what the hell have we done". We were instructed to go to deck 9 for lunch (pool deck) where we found Waves grill which served burgers ...

Australia extravaganza “Not”

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Regatta

KetoCruiser
10+ Cruises • Age 50s

We chose the cruise for the itinerary, it was a circumnavigation of Australia calling at many smaller ports. We were also led to believe that the food on Oceania was the best at sea. Our Christmas Day dinner was so poor that I was envious of all those people at home who were having a traditional Christmas Dinner. We had no sprouts, pigs in blankets, vegetables or gravy. The desserts were like ...

Not worth the extra money

Review for a Transpacific Cruise on Regatta

twbiggs
10+ Cruises • Age 20s

We chose this cruise for the ports that we wished to visit. But we ended up having to cancel 3 of the ports due to the corona virus. While we understand the chiefs of the various islands deciding against our ship visiting, there was no offer of compensation for even the port taxes. Also we learned of the cancellations much earlier than was announced by the ship's captain. When we went to ...

South Pacific Cruise

Review for a Transpacific Cruise on Regatta

Barbee Ann
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

I selected Oceania because I liked the cruise itinerary. Being this was my first cruise with Oceana I was pleasantly surprised how friendly and helpful the staff was during the entire cruise. The stateroom attendant, Joy, was amazing. Her name fitted her personality because she always greeted me and had a smile on her face. From the staff member scrubbing the decks to the Captain, I found ...

Modified South Pacific Cruise

Review for a Transpacific Cruise on Regatta

carolina husker
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

First time on Oceania. Picked the cruise for the itinerary. We had been to New Zealand and the South Pacific before and wanted to see a few more islands. Unfortunately, coronavirus concerns by the island governments forced the ship to cancel Mare Island, Samoa, American Samoa and Huahine. No new ports were added, just longer stays in Nomnea and Papeete. Spent a couple extra days at sea, but I ...
