Oceania Cruises
From April 2016 Oceania Cruises, based in Florida, will operate six luxury cruise ships on world-wide itineraries. Four ships are the very popular 30,277 GT Explorer Class vessels – with that smaller ship ambiance couched in luxury – and two larger 66,084 GT ships. Its 2015 season offers 40 new itineraries and 24 new ports. It is currently the world’s largest upscale cruise line, offering a destination-intensive, floating-hotel experience, with cuisine “finest at sea” and superior service at a mid-market price.

Oceania is popularly known as “the foodie cruise line.” Cruise Critic awarded Oceania “Best Dining” for 2012, 2013 and 2014, and “Best Ship Refurbishment” 2014 for Marina and Riviera. Many new ports are added annually to its present 330 destinations, and include the South Pacific, Caribbean, South America, the Middle East and Asia. Many overnight port stays allow passengers to immerse themselves in the history, culture and local flavour of the regions.



Oceania ships offer theme cruises – Signature Sailings – exploring culinary, wine, music and health themes. Her vessels have a high ratio of standard balcony staterooms. Dress code is country-club casual, and your fellow-guests are likely middle-aged and older couples seeking relaxation. Dining is free-style in the main dining rooms and all specialty restaurants.


Regatta Class Ships - Insignia, Nautica & Regatta
These Regatta class ships were built in 1998—2000 for Renaissance Cruises as a part of their R class. They have a gross tonnage of 30,277 and can accommodate a maximum of 684 passengers, and all had extensive refurbishments in 2014.

Accommodation
Most cabins have an outside view, and two-thirds have a private balcony. The standard interior and outside cabins are smallish but comfortable and affordable, with twin/queen-size bed and ‘best beds at sea’, bathrobes, plenty of built-in cabinets, flat-screen TV, DVD player, writing desk, satellite phone, wireless Internet, and personal safe. Décor is attractive with dark wood accents.



Dining
All dining is open-seated and dining is when you choose. There are four different restaurants under the direction of Master Chef Jacques Pépin. The Grand Dining Room features ‘American-inspired continental cuisine’ in an elegant atmosphere with fine table settings and top service. The Toscana Italian Restaurant offers genuine Tuscan cuisine and wines, with unique touches. The Polo Grill features steakhouse and seafood in a leather-chair club setting. (Reservations, but no extra charge for these last two venues.) The lido Waves Grill – indoors and outdoors – is the ship’s self-service buffet.

Entertainment
On-shore itineraries are the main daytime fare. However, on the ship, day classes include small-group Microsoft software instruction, use of the Internet, and digital photography – that is, if you are not absorbed in the Library, wine tasting, or relaxing in a top-deck Jacuzzi. In the evening the ship is filled with music in several bars and lounges. The Lounge is the centre for lectures, some social events, and a mix of comedians, magicians, classical recitals, and staff entertainers.



The spa and beauty salon offer an extensive range of services sponsored by Canyon Ranch. A small fitness centre has all the usual equipment. Other features are the thalassotherapy pool, walking track, single salt water pool and two Jacuzzis. The Exercise and Wellness program is extensive and personalised. There are no special facilities for children.

Oceania Class Ships - Riviera & Marina
These two 1,260-passenger, 66,084 gross ton ships were ordered from the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy, with the first being delivered in January 2011 and the second delivered in May 2012. 580 of the 626 cabins and suites have private balconies.

Accommodation
This new vessel is larger than others in the line, as are also its cabin sizes. The standard interior and outside cabins are quite elegant, with twin beds/queen-size bed and ‘best beds at sea’, bathrobes, stall shower, flat-screen TV, fridge mini-bar, writing desk, breakfast table, satellite phone, and personal safe. Décor is attractive and muted with dark wood accents. Maid service is twice daily and chocolates come with a nightly turn-down service. Ocean view staterooms have a sofa, separate tub and shower, and full height panoramic windows.

Veranda Staterooms are most popular for their furnished outdoor area, and Concierge Verandah Staterooms (and above) include a wireless laptop computer (charges apply). These accommodations are spacious, with large marble and granite-clad bathroom with separate tub and shower.

Oceania Suites are high atop the ship, and come with 50” LCD TV, private Jacuzzi, king-size bed, and course-by-course in-suite dining. Vista Suites at the bow have six interior rooms, including a second bathroom for guests. Each of the three Owner’s Suites span the entire width of the stern, and their presentation is fit for royalty. These are suites for entertaining friends.



Dining
The Grand Dining Room is exactly that, with its high ceiling, chandelier and rich furnishings after the style of Europe’s five-star restaurants. Cuisine is European Continental-style, and menus change daily. Two new gourmet restaurants are Jacques, for Jacques Pépin’s French cuisine, and Red Ginger for Pan-Asian classics. The other specialty restaurants are the signature Polo Grill for steak and seafoods, and Toscana offering genuine Tuscan cuisine and wines.

The lido Terrace Café – indoors and outdoors – is the ship’s self-service buffet that transforms in the evenings to Tapas on the Terrace, servicing an eclectic mix of dishes. For a casual snack relax informally at the Waves, which serves a broad selection poolside grill. High Tea is served every afternoon at 4:00 pm. Complimentary room service is available from a separate menu, and includes continental breakfast, sandwiches and desserts.



Entertainment
On-shore itineraries are the main daytime fare. However, on the ship, day classes include small-group Microsoft software instruction, use of the Internet, and digital photography - that is, if you are not absorbed in the Library, wine tasting, or relaxing in a top-deck Jacuzzi. Bon Appetit Culinary Centre is the only hands-on cooking school at sea, tutored by Master Chefs. In the evening the ship is filled with music in eight bars and lounges. Entertainment includes a mix of comedians, magicians, classical recitals, and staff entertainers; or your own efforts at karaoke.



Canyon Ranch SpaClub offers an extensive range of services, including steam room, thalassotherapy pool, and acupuncture to name a few. Exercise and wellness assessment and supervision programs are as extensive as on any ship at sea, ranging from weight-loss programs to orthotics advice. There are no special facilities for children. Dress for country club casual.
