Food highlight -- roaches in the pasta -- killed our taste for Terrace

Review for a Australia & New Zealand Cruise on Regatta

Summary: A most disappointing cruise with Oceania. With essentially 3 missed tender ports, 3 evacuations for medical reasons, mechanical issues with the PA system that forced 1 missed port and one delayed port, What was to be a moderately port intensive cruise became a transatlantic cruise with a couple of stops in Australia and Indonesia. My DW thought it was a 1* -- I thought it was a 3* ...

My husband and I wanted to take this cruise because we wanted to see Australia and the itinerary was good - although it did not turn out that way. I had sailed on Oceania before —years ago before Norwegian purchased them and we enjoyed it. Since being bought by a public company with a lot of debt the quality has gone downhill. There was one issue after another. I think this particular ship ...

This is not a luxury ship. Old with mildew present onboard. Ship should be retired. It is like a nursing home with poor entertainment and very little activities especially on sea days. We missed 4 ports because of 3 emergency medical evacuations. Service is efficient and food is good but not great. We are Elite class Celebrity and will never go on another Oceania cruise. Aqua class cabins on ...

Our trip of a life time - circumnavigating Australia. 1.Advertised as best gourmet dining at sea - not so! Boring watery vegetables, mashed potatoes like soup, tough lobster and meat etc etc 2. One excursion promised 4 things - we only experienced one of the 4 and our request for refund was handled very very poorly! 3. Our stateroom was small, tired, chipped and banged up. No actual ...

Horrible time. I first have to say this was my 4 th cruise on Oceania and will be my last. This cruise line has gone down hill very quickly ( perhaps since Norwegian took over). The public rooms were refurbished and are in nice shape but the cabins need a complete gutting. The food which was excellent in the past is just okay. The meats and fish are frozen for the most part . The vegtables ...

We chose this cruise because we had sailed on Oceania in the past and liked it and we liked the itinerary. This was the worst cruise we have ever been on. First of all the ships cabins need to be gutted. We were in a Penthouse suite and the carpet was stained and the sink cracked. My husband was sick for most of the trip because of the mold in the room. While 25 percent of the passengers had ...

We wanted to see Australia. Upon entering the ship it was filthy. I had to get the maid to clean it again. The first day the PA system was broken and we missed our first port and their was no music for the first 13 days. The food was all frozen junk. We had the room in the back of the ship and the balcony was filled with shoot we could not go on it for fear of being asphyxiated. There was ...

The Decline of The Regatta & Oceania

We looked forward to what we believed to be a cruise to have an insight into Australia. The actual outcome on the Regatta to circumvent round Australia was something else. Having being taken in by what cruise details via the Oceania brochure and having researched over a considerable amount organising private and ship tours at the proposed destinations. From the day of departure the cruise ...

My wife and I decided it was time to see Australia and this cruise seemed to have a great itinerary- It was horrible - The food which Oceania is known for and which we had enjoyed on earlier cruises was not good. It was the same quality we have had on lower end cruises. Our cabin smelled from mold as did other parts of the ship. The entertainment was awful- actually it was a joke.. There was one ...

Close to home cruise

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Having taken many cruises a long way from home it was nice to take one close meaning minimal travel. We liked the itinerary as it included a few places where we hadn't been. We missed four of the tender ports due to rough seas which would have been disappointing for those who haven't been there before and came so far but it was unavoidable. We didn't do any of the ship's shore excursions as we ...
