IT'S ONLY NATURAL in ALASKA
America's largest state, Alaska truly knows no bounds. Stretching beyond the imagination, it is a land of staggering natural beauty. Virgin forests blanket the hills, snow-mantled mountains soar high into the sky, and ancient glaciers creep toward the sea, oblivious to the passage of time. Even the cities, so youthful and spirited, blend in seamlessly. Alaska remains a beacon for those who hold Mother Nature dear, and Regatta zealously explores from north to south, even calling upon Anchorage itself and charmingly remote Kodiak.
The Oceania Cruises Experience!
Indulge Yourself -
Welcome is more than a warm greeting; it's how you feel on our ships from the very moment you step onboard. Perhaps, it's their ideal proportions. After all, being mid-sized affords indulgences you simply won't find on larger vessels.
The striking sense of comfort instantly puts you at ease. The elegant, yet casual ambiance creates a convivial mood that invites you to relax and experience the world from a unique vantage point. A generous ratio of staff to guests fosters an astonishing high level of personalised service. Pleasures abound, always with you in mind.
While some may consider a world-renowned culinary experience an extravagance, we consider it a must. Guided by the prodigious talents of the legendary Jacques Pepin, who serves as our Executive Culinary Director, our gifted chefs consistently present cuisine that is, quite candidly, the finest at sea. Open-seating in our four distinctive restaurants enhances the experience even further by freeing you to dine when, where, and with whom you wish.
The Freedom To Choose
In fact, freedom of choice imbues every aspect of cruises. Free from the need to wear tuxedos or evening gowns, you can flourish and enjoy life on your terms, exactly as you please. Our collection of diverse itineraries offers an abundance of choices as well, including the ideal blend of marquee ports mixed with boutique destinations inaccessible to larger ships.
The moment you step onboard Regatta you instantly realize this is no ordinary cruise experience. Life is immeasurably different when it proceeds so smoothly, so naturally. And while you may or may not expect such exquisite luxury to be affordable, it is remarkably within your means. Everything you have envisioned in a cruise is here, as Oceania Cruises presents your world. Your way.
The immense variety of entertainment options on board our ships ensures that your interests will be constantly piqued. Enjoy one of our esteemed, often famous guest lecturers, who might be a historian, naturalist or former ambassador eager to share insider knowledge. Our musical performances are equally enriching and, depending on the voyage, may include a live pianist, classical string quartet, dynamic vocalists and spectacular headliners. Later you may wish to try your luck in the elegant Monte Carlo-style casino.
On Board Shows - If you're an aficionado of the arts, you'll find our entertainment just as engrossing and personally satisfying. In the evenings, the ship is filled with music performed by, what some have called, the finest orchestra at sea. Attend a live classical concert under the stars, the notes gently wafting through the misty night. Marvel at the magicians, comedians and other headliners. Evenings aboard can be anything you desire. Chat with newfound friends over a cocktail in one of our nine lounges. Dance the night away in Horizons to the sounds of a marvelous musical group, or show your talent at karaoke. Entertainment has never been so enjoyable, enriching or varied.

How Comforting It Is To Be Completely At Ease
While the atmosphere onboard our mid-sized ships is certainly elegant, it's never pretentiously so. The ambiance is refreshingly casual and friendly, much like that of a private country club. Intimacy, warmth and comfort are the hallmarks, encouraging you to be yourself, while enjoying the company of other guests who share your enthusiasm for adventure and fine living.
Meet over cocktails in Martinis and recount your adventures ashore. Strike up a conversation poolside. Making friends is effortless, as is finding more private areas to relax, when you're feeling less gregarious. In this inviting atmosphere, where every wish is attended to with exemplary service, it's easy to feel at home.
You'll Leave Nothing Behind, Except Your Cares
We have designed our accommodations to be sumptuous retreats, where you will feel immensely comfortable. Handsomely appointed with soothing colors, soft textures, plush furnishings, and custom-milled French and Italian toiletries, each stateroom and suite is luxury personified. Consider it your own private world, an oasis where you can comfortably relax and recharge.
During the day with the curtains opened, natural light streams in, lending the interior a light, airy feeling. Relax in the sitting area while watching live news programs or first-run movies on your flat-panel LCD television, or enjoy a DVD selected from the hundreds of titles in our library. Entertain newly-made friends with champagne before dinner. Watch a sunset on your furnished veranda, a luxury in all suites and 70% of our staterooms. When it's time to retire, slip into the trademark Tranquility Bed, which is outfitted with lavish linens atop a sumptuous pillow-top mattress to ensure a deep, restful sleep.
Impeccable Service Is Our Hallmark
Our Staff Exudes A Zest For Pleasing Others
It is quite evident that our international staff has an innate enthusiasm for being of service. Their devotion is absolutely irrepressible. You can see it in their genuine smiles and hear it in the sincere tone of their voices, as they happily and precisely attend to your every imaginable need throughout your voyage.
Remembering details, such as adding a lemon twist to your favourite cocktail, or your propensity for a chilled hand towel while lying poolside, only hint at their deep commitment to your name, preferences and wishes, all in the interest of ensuring that each moment onboard will by memorable.
The ease with which they anticipate your needs borders on magical. This rate talent is especially evident among the private butlers who meticulously care for guests in our Owner's, Vista and Penthouse Suites. Warm hospitality and impassioned service are the distinguishing traits of our entire staff.
REGATTA - Enormous Differences on our Midsized Ship
Elevate Your Experience Into The Sublime
Being mid-sized allows for a certain warmth, intimacy and elegance that cannot be replicated on larger ships. The differences are pronounced, especially with regard to the defining points of ambiance, attitude and service.
Returning guests are greeted as cherished friends. First-time guests soon develop their own rapport with the staff, and the relationship only deepens with time. It's a matter of great pride that guests and staff consider each other friends by voyage's end.
Treasure The Warmth Of Your Seagoing Family
With a maximum of only 684 guests onboard each Alaska cruise, our international staff of 400 can single-mindedly devote themselves to your pleasure, fulfilling every request with gusto. Do you want to sleep in, undisturbed, during days at sea? Would you like your martinis extra-dry, with vodka rather than gin? Make your inclinations known, and they will be instantly and forever committed to memory.
That warm, caring attitude pervades the ship, promoting an extraordinarily comfortable atmosphere. Guests instinctively introduce themselves to each other, easily finding common ground. While intimate in nature, public areas are alive with laughter and engaging conversation. It is easy to be swept up in the feeling, uplifted by the knowledge that tomorrow holds the same promise.
