Average for a so-called luxury cruise liner.

I paid over $14,000 for a solo stateroom for a 31 days luxury cruise. OCI's confirmation brochure informed that an automatic 18% gratuities would be added to my account. I called the cruise planner stating that ...

Service with an attitude

Oceania regulars organized this Alaska cruise for a party of 10. Our cabin was very nice and the best service on the ship was our room attendants. The wait staff in the restaurants were either over-worked or ...

18 months previously, my wife and I did a cruise on Oceania Insignia, which was quite enjoyable. This cruise on the Oceania Regatta was a disappointment. Unfortunately for the Regatta, we had just done a cruise on ...

Good Cruise But not without issues

My wife and I are frequent cruisers and chose this cruise as an alternative to the all inclusive lines where we always are charged for something we don't take part in. We also used this cruise to determine if we ...

Loved the Ship ... The Ports, Not So Much

We decided to cruise to the Caribbean for our 40th wedding anniversary, and chose Oceania because we had a wonderful experience a few years ago cruising on the Marina to the Mediterranean. We were confident that ...

Yet another missed port.

We chose this cruise as an end of winter getaway to the lovely Caribbean. Embarkation was efficient and we were on board within minutes. Disembarkation was on time and also efficient. The ship is old but clean ...

Oceania Regatta is pseudo luxury

Embarkation: Quick and easy. Port of Miami employees were friendly and helpful. Passengers: The person who penned Oceania brochure's "country club casual" dress code might want to spend some time on Regatta ...

CDC Restrictions, Medavacs, Missed ports. and Lack of Communication

I chose this cruise for the itinerary. Not a fan of sea days, but the ports were interesting, as was the panama canal and Havana stop. Embarkation in Honolulu was good and bad. There was no one to help us ...

Panama transit was fabulous

This was our first cruise on Oceania. The itinerary hit several of our bucket list locations and we had always wanted to sail on a small ship, so booking was kind of a no-brainer. The prior cruise had been hit ...

Oceania generally offers an excellent experience. But not in the summer!! Our Alaska cruise was overrun with undisciplined kids. We could have saved packing our swimsuits, sunscreen, deck shoes and coverups, ...

Before I begin, let me say that I had a fabulous trip a few years ago on Oceania's Riviera in the Mediterranean. It was superb in every way possible, so my view of the Regatta suffered in comparison. I realize my ...
