A sophisticated midsized ship, the Oceania Regatta is a high-end premium vessel that sails around the world on exotic voyages. Though its Alaska route attracts more families and first-time cruisers, it is primarily popular among mature adults traveling as couples or alone. Straddling the line between luxury and mass-market cruising, the Regatta attracts both middle class passengers looking for a more personalized experience and luxury cruise aficionados looking for a better value for their money. With its classy, understated décor and matching mannerisms among its guests, the Oceania Regatta gives off the vibe of a sophisticated country club.
Elegant and comfortable, the staterooms on the Oceania Regatta provide the perfect place to relax and unwind after a long day at sea. To-die-for bedding will give you the most restful night’s sleep you’ve ever had at sea, so much that you won’t want to get up in the morning. The interior cabins are well-furnished with a small sofa, a coffee table, and a writing desk, providing you all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay. Fluffy, oversized bath towels and quality Bulgari bath products come standard in every bathroom. Upgrade to a Penthouse Suite for a more spacious stay – the 322-square-foot staterooms come with two private dining areas in the room an don the balcony, a shower-bath combo in a magnificent marble bathroom, and a 24-hour private butler.
Dining & Gastronomy
Passengers are always raving about the food on Oceania cruises, and for good reason. With high-quality ingredients and unique menus designed by celebrity chefs there is enough variety to keep passengers satisfied on even the longest cruise. Although, as a smaller ship, there are only two specialty restaurants onboard, the Grand Dining Room also features favorite dishes from restaurants on other Oceania ships—such as gourmet French cuisine from the popular restaurant Jacques. Toscana is a reservation-only restaurant featuring authentic Italian mains in a Mediterranean-inspired atmosphere. Meat lovers will delight in the Polo Grill, an ornate New York-style steakhouse serving sumptuous seafood, juicy steaks, and the best prime rib to be found at sea. The Terrace Café rounds things out as a more casual buffet, and if you’re feeling puckish, afternoon tea is a great time for a sweet pastry or small sandwich as a midday pick-me-up.
Entertainment and Activities
The Regatta Lounge is the main source of entertainment onboard this Oceania vessel. The ship’s own cast of singers and dancers puts on several productions per week, and guest performers make regular appearances. Afternoon tea is accompanied by a classical string quartet. Otherwise, entertainment is low-key and aimed at mature adults. Passengers can expect needlepoint sessions, trivia competitions, and a series of entertaining culinary demonstrations. Cruise classics such as wine tasting events and a piano bar can be found onboard, and of course, what ship would be complete without a pool and a sun deck?
Only cruises to Alaska include children’s programming. On select cruises, children ages 5 through 12 can participate in the Alaska Explorer Youth Program, organized something like a summer camp or a sleepover at sea.
The dress code on the Oceania Regatta is fairly casual, with guests opting for destination-appropriate resort wear or country-club casual styles. In the evenings guests dress a bit more formal, with men opting for nice pants and a collared shirt, and women wearing skirts or pants and nice blouses. There is no Formal Night on Oceania cruises, so guests are at no point required to wear a suit or dress – though if they choose to do so, the captain’s welcome dinner is the time to do so.
