Regatta Caribbean by 67jellen

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Regatta / Destination: Caribbean

Once again, cruising with Oceania is a real joy. The staff is outstanding making everyone feel welcome from the first moment you arrive aboard until the moment you disembark. My wife has certain food allergies and Oceania goes above and beyond to see to her requirements.

Mayans and Islands 3/28-4/11/15 by cfinke3856

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Regatta / Destination: Caribbean

This was an action packed cruise. Costa, Maya, Mexico and Santo Tomas, Guatemala provided access to Mayan ruins.. The Santo Tomas stop provided a chartered flight to Tikal ruins which was spectacular.

Roatan and Grand Cayman provided snorkeling and scuba diving on their reefs. Puerto Limon, Costa Rica had a great Rainforest tour.  Colon, Panama, had access to Panama Canal locks and a train that went to Panama city and Returned back to Colon.  Cartagena, Columbia, had great shopping.  Ocho Rios Jamaica had access to Dunns River Falls for climbing and shopping.

The two weeks went by very fast.

Not up to usual standards by Opinionlady

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Regatta / Destination: Caribbean

We have cruised on Regent and Oceania (same owners) and have been quite pleased in the past.  While we enjoyed this cruise, there were some noticable cutbacks:  Staff were not trained as well (lack of service skills and language skills) especially the restaurant servers at the buffet. The food was not quite the quality we expected except in the specialty restaurants. The wine stewards sometimes difficult to track down and the rooms were tired and in need of some maintenance.  Nearly everyone we met had some problem--toilets didn't flush, a/c didn't work properly, curtins lacked hooks so hung down.....

Neither the menus nor the day's activities were on the TV which, IMHO, is an inconvenience that can't be that expensive to do.  Also, a daily report from the ship's Captain was only provided on the first and last day.  Temperatures and weather were never "available" on the TV. Minor problems, certainly, but I'm afraid it  does not auger well for future travel on Oceania (and probably Regent).

Weather and cruise outstanding by Bjgrosman

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Regatta / Destination: Alaska

Weather is not something one can do anything about so we lucked out with perfect weather from Seattle through Alaska and during our time in Vancouver. Couple that with a wonderful cruise on the Oceania Regatta and you have our family vacation -- perfect. It has been several years since we have been on an Oceania ship and we were pleasantly surprised that they have maintained the high standard in terms if staffing, service, food and accommodations that we experienced on our earlier Oceania voyages. We already have a nice long one planned for January so we are thrilled.

loved the cruise, the ship, the food by femrav

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Regatta / Destination: Alaska

everything was wonderful- except we had to ask for help for my disabled husband- when you see someone coming into the serve yourself area who is walking with two canes, you would think they would help more- I usually had to get him his food and then get my own. They would take the plate from me (I don't need it), but they almost never offered to help him while he was looking at the choices. Except for that, I would highly recommend this ship- it is beautiful, the food is fabulous and the staterooms are just beautiful.

Fine Experience as expected (food & service. Did not enjoy most ports!) by nancihochman

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Regatta / Destination: South America

Food & Service Fabulous. Had a bad tour experience in Rio, which ruined Rio experience altogether! Tour person was unorganized & rude! Did not enjoy most ports. Thoroughly enjoyed Montevideo & Buenos Aires! As a suggestion, could eliminate all Brazil stops other than Rio, add day to Rio, Montevideo & to Buenos Aires. Would not recommend this itinerary to anyone. This was our third cruise with Oceania. Very Disappointing! Loved the staff, service & food.

A horrible and disappointing cruise by AnthonyJParisse

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Regatta / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

The ship is stogy. It lacks the elegance and luxury touted. It was clean and easy to get around in.

Wonderful Cruise--great ports by DanetteS

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Regatta / Destination: Alaska

The cruise on Oceania was all we could have hoped for. The staff were excellent. The choice of food options were very good. the ports of call were great. The options for excursions were very good but possibly a little pricey. We enjoyed the curise very much and would highly recommend it.

Relaxed atmosphere with older clientele (avg age was 65). Quiet and low keyed. No screaming kids or screaming cruise director.

Surreal French Polynesian Cruise by minnie51

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Regatta / Destination: South Pacific - Tahiti

We found French Polynesia absolutely beautiful with some of the friendliest people on earth. The local cuisine on the islands was so fresh and delicious. Oceania did try to make the best of a potentially bad situation. I commend their guidelines for sanitizing and prevention measures. I wish we could have gone to Bora Bora but the circumstances were understandable.

Beautiful South Pacific Cruise by JulieKeane

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Regatta / Destination: South Pacific - Tahiti

This was a very nice older ship. Not much to do and very little shopping available. Bring whatever you need because you won't find it on this ship. They kept it very clean. Buffet was excellent. Ports were beautiful. Water was very warm. Stays around 85 degrees all year round according to a local. People on the islands were nice. Most speak English. If you go to a market, there usually will be an English interpreter around somewhere.

Beautiful cruise, spoilt slightly by port changes due to COVID-19 by daviddwells

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Regatta / Destination: South Pacific

A very pampered cruise experience, especially if you like your food. Virtually everything is included, so the balance on your account on disembarkation can be a pleasant surprise. The main expenses are drinks, trips, shopping, spa and gambling, all of which you can have control of if you wish. Even the self service laundry is free.

A Great Adventure by JenskiMe2

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Regatta / Destination: South Pacific - Australia

This is now rated as one of our best cruise experiences. The Regatta was always clean, comfortable and a pleasure to come home to after a long day ashore. The service on board is excellent and we never had to wait for a table or make reservations to dine in the elegant main dining room. All the cities and towns we visited in Australia were delightful and and enlightening.

Family Cruise to Alaska with 9 family members. by EBNM

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Regatta / Destination: Alaska

I would not recommend this Cruise to anyone who wishes to travel with a younger family. It is focused for an older crowd with little to no activities. We feel the whole experiences was overrated as advertised.

Wonderful! by poko

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Regatta / Destination: Alaska

May is to early to see bears and salmon unless you go to raptor or bear center where they take care of injured animals. Weather was great, only rained in Sitka. We had such a great time we signed up for another cruise. We’ve been on larger ships but this size was great for us.
