We looked forward to this South American cruise for a long time. Except for missing two ports due to wind and waves, it was a wonderful trip. Regatta is a lovely small ship. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was really good, even the food at the buffet. Unfortunately, some passengers and crew came down with influenza. There were repeated requests for everyone to wash their hands and ...

Having cruised with Oceania before for a total of 63 days on two cruises, we knew what to expect. Small cabins (even the conceriage cabins have only 165 sq ft of living area) and a buffet that is overcrowded probably half the time. That said, we got a really good deal on this cruise (free shore excursions, free gratuities, free WIFI, free drink package) so went ahead and booked. First ...

The quality of the past has gone downhill -- there are better options.

We had previously cruised twice with Oceania and were quite satisfied. This time was a disaster! Half the crew didn't speak English so most of the service was poor. They lost our luggage on the ship and claimed they had four people looking on every deck for it. his went on for over 2 hours. My wife found it in 15 minutes on one of the lower decks. They held us when we arrived in Argentina ...

We booked this cruise from Buenos Aires to Rio De Janeiro because we wanted to see these 2 cities, and to visit Brazil and of course to sail on Regatta again. We had had such a fantastic time on our previous cruise on board her. However this time we were sadly so disappointed. So much was not right. Embarkation in Buenos Aires was delayed for about 4 hours with little information and certainly ...

First Time Cruiser

We were quite disappointed with this cruise, as we have cruised Oceania a few times in the past and have always loved our stay on board. We joined the ship in Buenos Aires and sailed to Rio de Janeiro . To be fair, the ship had an outbreak of Noro Virus and the crew seemed to spend all their free time cleaning and sanitizing the ship, but unfortunately the virus lasted all cruise. We felt ...

Feb. 25, 2016 My wife and I were excited to be back on an Oceania Cruise Ship. We had been on the Marina four years ago out of Dover and throughly enjoyed everything about it and another ten years ago,. We enjoyed the Marina due to the cooking school and the red Ginger restaurant and the ports. We have been on over 37 cruises on almost all the different cruise lines so we know what to ...

We booked this cruise with very high expectations, given Oceania's reputation as a "step above" the other cruise lines and the price point. Unfortunately, this cruise was a disappointment; almost from day one. I hope other potential customers will learn from my experience and read all the reviews BEFORE booking a cruise on the Regatta. I'd like to start with a positive note: the food was very ...

We had a memorable and enjoyable cruise, with only minor irritations. The itinerary was generally excellent, particularly the Rio de Janeiro to Miami segment. Cruising the Amazon River was spectacular, and only could have been done as well in a ship of Regatta's size. The ship's staff was generally excellent. The Cruise Director, Dotty K., was everywhere every day. She saw guests off on ...

Just got back from 12 nights cruise to Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil on Oceania's Regatta. This is our first on Oceania. Our cabin is a C-1 deluxe category. First we we so surprised at how small the bathroom space was and lack of closet space. We were expecting a floor to ceiling window at least but is was just a small window. The beds were comfortable. All soda and water were complimentary. In ...
