Oceania Regatta

Oceania's Regatta was built in 1998 but underwent a multimillion-dollar refurbishment in 2014, with upgrades including teak, custom stone and tile work, and plush cabin makeovers. With only 684 passengers, the midsize ship has the Old World feel of a traditional hotel. But despite formal touches like a grand stairway, life aboard this ship is relatively casual. There are no formal nights, and dining is all open seating.

What We Love

Canyon Ranch SpaClub: The outdoor spa terrace is one of the ship's hidden gems, and you'll also find healthy Canyon Ranch choices on dining menus.

Plenty of Balcony Cabins: Of the Regatta's 342 cabins, 234 have balconies. And it's not just the suites that have verandahs — 170 of those are regular cabins.

Best Known For

Good Value: Oceania cruises all include airfare, and Regatta offers luxury for a surprisingly reasonable tab. Plus, there's no upcharge for specialty restaurants or for espresso at the coffee bar. 

Oh, That Food: From the morning croissants to the last bite of chocolate mousse at dinner, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the food if this is your first Oceania sailing.

Who It's Best For

Traditionalists: Don't expect edgy shows — instead, Regatta offers subtle entertainment, like a string quartet at tea time.

Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

It's Not for the Whole Family: There are no children's programs on Regatta, and kids must be at least 1 year of age to sail.
