The Ships of Oceania Cruises

Experience a distinctive new style of luxury cruising aboard Oceania Cruises' exquisite Regatta this summer. Enter a world of gracious, sophisticated luxury made wonderfully affordable.

From the moment you step aboard this intimate ship you will enjoy an extraordinary level of personalized service from our caring and highly trained European staff. They are singularly focused to anticipate your every whim. And with a staff-to-guest ratio of more than one staff member for each stateroom, you can be assured of exceptional service throughout your cruise. Catering to just 684 guests, this beautiful vessel will be your home away from home as you savor our casually elegant country club atmosphere complemented by sublime cuisine, finely appointed accommodation and world-class entertainment. In these relaxed surroundings there is no need for tuxedos or evening gowns. They can be left at home without regret.

A highlight of any journey with Oceania Cruises will be the superb cuisine served in our four open-seating restaurants. Each one will have its own unique menu under the direction of our Executive Culinary Director, master chef Jacques Pépin. The Grand Dining Room, the ship's main restaurant, will feature French-inspired continental dishes which you can enjoy while being serenaded by a string quartet. Then there is Toscana, a gourmet Italian restaurant and the Polo Grill which will feature dry-aged beef and seafood. Last but not least, the Terrace Café is the ideal place to enjoy a casual breakfast or lunch. In the evening it will transform into a charming al fresco bistro serving tapas and a variety of dishes from around the world, complemented by live entertainment.

Listen to the sea as you savor that first cup of morning coffee on your private veranda - available on 70% of Regatta's staterooms. Or treat yourself to the lavish, impressive Owner's and Vista Suites which boast floor-to-ceiling glass doors and large, wraparound teak verandas. These are 786 or 962 square feet and include private whirlpool spas, a complete entertainment system with DVD and CD player and refrigerated mini-bar. Indulge in the decadent pleasure of 24-hour butler service when you select these or one of the luxurious Penthouse Suites which measure a splendid 322 square feet. At the end of the day retire to your well-appointed, spacious accommodation. Fall asleep in this elegant haven on the finest quality mattresses, luxuriating in the 300-thread count Egyptian cotton linens, soft duvets and down pillows. Pamper your skin with our French-milled toiletries and plush towels. Staterooms range in size from 158 sq. ft. for inside accommodation to 216 square feet for the staterooms with teak veranda. These categories also have color television.

Onboard do as much or as little as you wish. Sink into an over-stuffed sofa in our English-inspired Library and immerse yourself in a good book or research the next port of call. Expand your mind with our stimulating enrichment program as you hear world-renowned figures speak on virtually any subject. Stay in touch through our 24 hour computer center, Oceania@Sea. During the voyage you can enjoy a swim in the pool, run on our fitness track or visit our state-of-the-art fitness center where one of our expert personal trainers can devise a work-out program especially for you. Succumb to the sybaritic pleasures of the spa and indulge your body in an aromatherapy massage, a sauna - whatever will revitalize you.

Evenings aboard Regatta can also be anything you desire. Chat with new friends over a relaxing cocktail in one of our eight intimate lounges. Dance the night away in the Regatta Lounge to the strains of our marvelous combo. Enjoy a show or visit the Casino and try your luck at the roulette or blackjack tables. Take a late night stroll on deck and admire the stars.

And, since two is infinitely better than one, we will introduce our second ship, Insignia, in October 2003. She will be identical to Regatta and offer the same superb accommodations, cuisine and entertainment. Enrich your life with Oceania Cruises.
