Oceania Cruises’ Regatta embarked on a 10-day cruise in Alaska, marking the completion of the largest refurbishment project in Oceania history.
Three of the line’s five ships were overhauled at a cost of $50 million. Regatta was the last of the three, following earlier drydocks for Nautica and Insignia.
Among the new features added to Regatta were a Baristas coffee bar, a cook-to-order grill at Terrace Café and new outdoor recreation features on the Sports Deck.
Staterooms on the 684-passenger ships got new décor elements. Updates to the Owner’s and Vista suites included wall-to-wall marble bathrooms with a decorative inlay centerpiece, and a granite vanity opposite an oversized shower. Penthouse suites received new furnishings and upholstery.
The ship’s Canyon Ranch SpaClub was renovated and has new mosaics motifs and renovated changing areas.
