Review summary

The Oceania Regatta is a nice sized ship -- just under 700 passengers. The food is excellent (Jacques Pepin consults). The furnishings are a little dated but nice. Excellent service and the staff were calling me by name within two days. Highly recommended for the price point. We'll likely be back for another cruise.

One or two misses but overall the food was excellent. Toscana was very good. Polo Grill was fine, but just about what you'd expect of a good steakhouse.

Very good quality. The special pastas were excellent. The main courses were likewise.

Nice little bar for pre-dinner cocktails. Unfortunately there were two large groups that hogged/saved seats and watched sports on laptops, roaring when their team did well. On the other hand when he could be heard the pianist was very good.

Cute town. Very much into the Gold Rush thing. Touristy but fun.

Took a whale watching tour that was great. Saw orcas and humpbacks! Didn't really go into town.

Sitka, Alaska

The Raptor Center was terrific.

Victoria, British Columbia

The Butchart Gardens were impressive, but the city wasn't as all out charming as I'd been led to believe.
