About The Ship

REGATTA
NEWLY REFURBISHED in the Fall of 2019

Download Deck Plan

The Re-Inspiration of Classic Elegance

In a dramatic re-inspiration process, Regatta has become a completely redesigned ship without peer. Every surface of every suite and stateroom is entirely new, while in the public spaces, a refreshed color palette of soft sea and sky tones surrounds tasteful renewal of fabrics, furnishings and lighting fixtures that exquisitely encompasses the inimitable style and comfort of Oceania Cruises. From the bejeweled new chandeliers in the gracious Grand Dining Room to the beckoning Reception Hall, Regatta celebrates a rejuvenation so sweeping, you will find it positively unimaginable to resist her welcoming embrace.

Sleek and elegantly charming, Regatta is the flagship of the Oceania Cruises fleet. Her decks are resplendent in the finest teak, custom stone and tile work, and her lounges, suites and staterooms boast luxurious, neo-classical furnishings. Regatta offers every luxury you may expect on board one of our stylish ships. She features four unique, open-seating restaurants, the Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center, eight lounges and bars, a casino and 342 lavish suites and luxurious staterooms, nearly 70% of which feature private verandas. With just 684 guests to pamper, our 400 professionally trained European staff ensure you will wait for nothing.

Suites & Staterooms
Lighter, brighter and even more spacious, every suite and stateroom on board is positively glowing from a wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling re-inspiration. Custom crafted furnishings, exotic stone and polished wood finishes, designer accessories and an air of elegance and sophistication are the hallmarks for Oceania’s completely transformed guest accommodations. Every square inch is new, enhanced by nuanced shades of the sea and sky, creating a harmonious celebration of style and comfort.

Luxurious New Bathrooms
Every suite and stateroom features a gloriously metamorphosed bathroom. Every fixture and surface is new, with designer fixtures, perfect lighting, lavish vanities and sleek glass shower enclosures gently vying for your attention. Penthouse, Vista and Owner’s Suite bathrooms feature even more space and are true luxury retreats bejeweled with Carrara marble, polished granite and sleep onyx.
