Review of Oceania Regatta

Launched in 1998 as R Two, Oceania Regatta cruise ship is company's second R-class liner, with sisterships Nautica,Insignia and Sirena (former Ocean Princess). Oceania ship Regatta will be drydock refurbished in 2019 (September) by company's new OceaniaNEXT fleet renovation project (2019-2020).

History - construction and ownership

Oceania Cruises is a US company, and brand owned by NCL Norwegian (shipowner), Between April 2007 and September 2014, the company (as part of "Prestige Cruise Holdings") was owned by Apollo Management LP - one of the world's largest private investment equity funds. Since September 2014, Oceania and the sister company Regent Seven Seas Cruises are owned by NCL, acquired at the total cost of USD 3 billion. Oceania ships offer luxury cruises with relatively shorter itineraries, as well as Around The World voyages up to 180 days in length.

Oceania Regatta cruise ship

The 30,277-ton, 684-passenger cruise ship Regatta was primarily built as one of a series of 8 vessels for Renaissance Cruises. The cruise ship ceased operations in late 2001 and became the first of 3 identical vessels launched by Oceania. When Regatta debuted, her smoking policy (or non-smoking policy) was the stiffest in the industry and remained so for 3 years. At the time, there were only two sections onboard in which passengers could smoke: a small place forward of the swimming pool on the starboard side and a small, indoor space at the aft of one of the vessel's lounges. Cruisers caught lighting up on their verandas or in their cabins were politely reminded - once - that this was not available and was then threatened with unceremonious debarkation if continued. This restrictive policy is more general now, and the fact that Oceania cruise ships still have a smoking zone in one of the lounges makes it one of the more liberal cruise lines.

Cruise itinerary program

Regatta itinerary program is based on luxury World Cruises round-trip from Miami with various segments, and also on exotic itineraries in South America, Caribbean, Panama Canal, Alaska (from Seattle WA), New England (from New York and Montreal).

Cabins

Oceania Regatta has a total of 351 cabins (of which 64 Suite, 170 Balcony, 28 Inside rooms) in 16 grades. Most Regatta staterooms (66%) are 175-sq. foot Balcony rooms. The largest aboard Regatta is the Owner’s Suite (735 ft2).

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

Regatta guests take advantage of the flexibility of 4 open seating dining venues. The Grand Dining Room serves Continental cuisine. it is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Alternative, reservations-required options are Toscana, which offers gourmet Italian food, and the steak house Polo Grill. The buffet restaurant Terraces serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is transformed into "Tapas on the Terrace" at night for a relaxed atmosphere. All dining venues have bars, and there is no cover charge. In addition, a poolside grill offers hamburgers, sandwiches and salads at lunchtime. There is also a pizzeria in the buffet area. The observation lounge Horizons serves afternoon tea. Room service is available 24 hours.

  • Grand Dining Room (complimentary 340-seat restaurant for open seating Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner; offers French-inspired dishes, and menus change daily)

  • Polo Grill (96-seat Steakhouse restaurant, complimentary; reservations required).

Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport

At the time of its onset, Oceania's management had clear objectives: to offer luxury service without becoming a luxurious cruise line. Priced in the premium or luxurious range, Regatta offers an experience that's near to luxury without being an all-inclusive ship. Although her cabins are smaller than those offered on most luxury vessels, the conveniences, attentive service and delicious cuisine are probably to fool most people into believing they are travelling in ultra-luxury style.
