Oceania's Regatta is a compact smaller ship that is a blessing for those with "special needs".   Travelers with canes, walkers etc. can go the length of the ship easily and, after two days acclimation can find everything.     The staff are great - they greet you with sincere smiles and work hard to make you feel pampered.   The food is plentiful and delicious, especially the desserts!   Of the four restaurants, only Toscana needs improvement - their service is way too slow.  (I understand they will be combined with Polo next year).   The Spa is a welcome amenity - just watch for specials during the trip,  because their prices are in the stratosphere.  On our trip, Julie was the social director and she's tops.   The entertainers are second-rate but they try hard.   The casual "resort style" is welcome - no jackets or gowns needed. Activities on board are fun - but the lack of hosted Bridge or MahJongg was noted by this traveler.  The shops are also in the stratosphere - watch for sales.   The people who travel on this line are very friendly and approachable.   A lively daily newsletter and tv announcements keeps you aware of what is coming up the next day.  The computers work just fine and there's a library.   Bring sweaters - these two rooms are icy cold.  All in all, it's a great place to unwind for 7 - 10 days.

Cabin / Stateroom
Just a tad small but comfy. Beds are plush. Enough storage space. Our balcony had a small obstruction which did not bother us. They painted the balcony during our stay which did bother us. Toiletries were nice. Shower was do=able with bar to hold on. Plenty of towels. We enjoyed room service two mornings so that we could go on early excursions.
