Located midship on Deck 8, these 322-square-foot elegant suites with large sliding glass doors and 24-hour butler service will have you feeling like royalty. These suites offer all the amenities you'd expect to find in a world-class hotel -- comfortable seating, an intimate area for private in-room dining, mini-bar, ample closet space and private balcony.
The cabin was generally comfortable and had adequate room to store our clothes, however our luggage did not fit under the bed and had to be stored in a corner of the cabin, taking up a significant amount of space. The butler and cabin attendant were great. The Regatta is showing its age, as the furnishings show wear and tear. The decor is 1980s country club, with dark wood and out of date style.

We had a “penthouse suite” (exactly the same cabin as what Princess calls a “minisuite” in their R-class ships) and were disappointed that it was not better appointed than Princess. We have had both a balcony on the Pacific Princess and a minisuite on the Ocean Princess. The Oceania penthouse suite is essentially the same as the minisuite on Pacific Princess and Ocean Princess. And smaller than the veranda suite on Seabourn (the bathroom is significantly smaller than Seabourn). Very comfortable, but is it worth the upcharge? Probably not. Read entire member review >>
Although situated at a corridor junction there were no noise problems. This cabin has the advantage of a full height screen at the forward end of the balcony, thus making the balcony less windy when underway. The cabin was very clean, excellent butler, stewardess and assistant steward. Read entire member review >>
Nice but not the best especially for 13K. Was on 2 other ships recently that I actually paid less for and the cabins were much nicer and designed better. This cabin was adequate but not over the top. Read entire member review >>
First time in a PH and it is a bit like the first time you have a balcony, it is had to go without it for future cruises.
The room was in good condition with loads of storage for clothes, shoes etc.
We often had another couple in for drinks and it wasn't crowded. Read entire member review >>
8018, a PH1 cabin which we really liked. Our top level cabin was supposed to come with certain priorities, like for the two restaurants, but that just wasn't so. Butler was fine but no better than our cabin attendants on Sea Dream or Seabourn. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was spacious enough and had a bathtub! We enjoyed the table and chairs in the room too. There was adequate stowage space but not as much as on Seabourn. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8030 is large, comfortable, and has plenty of storage space. There is a usable balcony. Being amidships, it's relatively stable. Being on the port side, it offers a good view of the comings and goings of the ship's tenders. We chose it carefully and were pleased with it. Read entire member review >>
I had envisioned spending a lot of time on the veranda, quietly reading with a glass of sparkling water on the table next to me. I didn't sit in the chaise even once in ten days; it wasn't inviting. The veranda is so small that the chaises are at an angle -- they're longer than the veranda. I thought they were covered with bird droppings, so asked our Butler to have them cleaned. It turned out that the white spots are paint. Nonetheless, with the dirty-looking chaise lounges that really didn't fit and one very small table, the veranda just wasn't inviting. Too, the tract to the veranda looked dirty when the sliding door was closed. When it was opened, the tract was disgusting.
Location was perfect in that we were mid-ship so felt less "motion of the ocean." Even so, I was a bit queasy one day and went to the ship's boutique in search of crackers, hopefully Wheat Thins. They don't carry any crackers at all, but the young man offered me Pringles -- not what I had in mind for a queasy stomach. Read entire member review >>
