Sail the open oceans with the Regatta, where the journey becomes the destination. With panoramic views within the vessel and an open-air deck, guests are free to choose how they would like to appreciate the beauty and scenery around them. Boasting luxurious elegance throughout, the ship is an exemplar of beautiful design and exquisite service.
The very first ship to be launched with Oceania Cruises, the Regatta earned the colossal company with all the excitement, elegance and grace that is a trademark of the luxury liner today. Undergoing a major refurbishment in June 2014, the Regatta upgraded its suites, installed the greatly anticipated Barista’s coffee bar and retiled the sun deck with marvellous mosaics and teak decking. Falling within the perfect boundary of sophisticated luxury and informal comfort, the Regatta caters for all 684 of her passengers with facilities to accommodate all.
With a total of 342 cabins, the Regatta has room for all types of travellers on board this floating hotel. With the Owner’s and Vita’s Suites being the largest and most exclusive accommodation, amenities include personal butler service, a private teak balcony and a maid service twice a day. The Penthouse Suite offers serenity with its sea tones of blue and green, as well as a marble bathroom and balcony complete with a pair of reclining chairs. Even the staterooms are far from ordinary. Ranging in size, these cabins have ample storage space and most include a balcony from which guests can appreciate the fresh sea air from the comfort of their bedrooms. Staterooms particularly benefitted from the 2014 refurbishment; bedding and mattresses were replaced to a higher quality and a higher thread count, so guests can drift off each night to a world of total comfort and bliss.
The Regatta offers a variety of international cuisines, with both fine dining and relaxed al fresco choices. In the Grand Dining Room, the stunning scenery of the open ocean comes second only to the phenomenal food presented to guests, created by Chef Jacques Pépin. Sit back and enhance your meal with a glass of fine wine, as you gaze out at the ocean views ahead of you. The Polo Grill is the first of the speciality restaurants and offers an elegant and stylish twist on steakhouse favourites. The meat is dry-aged to ensure optimum flavour and tenderness, and the seafood is an example of culinary delight. Toscana is the second speciality restaurants on offer; family trained Italians serve the traditional Tuscan and Italian specialities in a gourmet setting. The Terrace Café offers a bountiful breakfast in the morning and a mouth-watering buffet lunch, before transforming into the Tapas on the Terrace bistro where International and Mediterranean joys are served. The Waves Grill is the most informal venue on board, where salads, seafood, homemade ice cream and milkshakes make for the perfect casual daytime eating.
In the Lounge, exhilarating cabaret performances, captivating illusionists, engaging comedy acts and spectacular live music acts will enchant and entertain you. Relax with a drink at the bar as you marvel at the amazing talent on display. Discover new friendships in Horizons Bar, situated in the observation lounge, where the gorgeous ocean views provide the perfect backdrop to wine or cheese tasting sessions. On board, guests can enjoy an exhilarating evening in the casino room, where travellers can find Lady Luck at the poker or blackjack table, or see what’s in their favour at the roulette wheel.
The Canyon Ranch Spaclub offers an extensive range of revitalising treatments, including practices inspired from traditional Buddhist monasteries. An oasis of calm and tranquillity, the spa includes reinvigorating massage therapies, spiritual healing, tanning treatments and body wraps. Soak away any tension in the heated Jacuzzi’s, designed to help you ease into a realm of serenity and bliss. Visit the Fitness Centre for an injection of high energy activity. Choose between the range of exercise equipment or one of the organised classes such as indoor cycling, aerobics, Pilates or yoga.

Visit the large outdoor swimming pool for an afternoon of relaxation, before soaking in the sun on the extremely comfortable lounge chairs with a perfectly balanced cocktail.
