The Next Chapter
Oceania cruises is excited to announce their new program OceaniaNEXT, which includes a sweeping array of dramatic enhancements so transformational, they are inspirational.  This ambitious initiative will elevate virtually every facet of the Oceania Cruises guest experience to new levels.  From thoughtfully crafted new dining experiences and reimagined menus to the dramatic re-inspiration of the icon Regatta-class ships, Oceania is enhancing every aspect of the Oceania Cruises experience.

in the fall of 2019 REGATTA essentially will become a new ship in a re-inspiration process without peer.  Every surface of every suite and stateroom will be entirely new, while in the public space, a refreshed color palette of soft sea and sky tones will surround a 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 and beckoning Reception Hall to the sleek and calming Canyon Ranch Spa, REGATTA will celebrate a rejuvenation so sweeping, you will find it positively unimaginable to resist.

 
Regatta offers even more ways to savor "The Finest Cuisine at Sea". Specialty restaurants Polo Grill offers all the elements of a classic steakhouse and Toscana features Tuscan cuisine evolved from rich Italian family traditions.  The Grand Dining Room offers a surprise transformation into The Bistro during lunch, which serves classic French fare inspired by Executive Culinary Director, Jacques Pépin.  Also menu items from the beloved restaurant Red Ginger will be available to enjoy bold Asian cuisine in a fresh new way.
 
With Regatta, Oceania Cruises' diverse and destination-rich itineraries continues to grow, appealing to both seasoned world travelers and passionate cruisers. Her decks are resplendent in the finest teak, custom stone and tile work. Regatta offers every luxury you may expect on board one of their mid-sized ships. She features a world-class fitness center and spa, 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, their 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 will positively glow 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 will be the hallmarks for Oceania's completely transformed guest accommodations.  Every square inch will be 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 will feature a gloriously metamorphosed bathroom.  Every fixture and surface will be 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 will feature even more space and will be true luxury retreats bejeweled with Carrara marble, polished granite and sleep onyx.
