Oceania cruises are a luxury brand of cruise, and one of their much loved ships, the Regatta is being worked on by master craftsmen to keep the classic ship in service and in a new first class condition. This means taking her out of service for 66 days for a dramatic re-inspiration process. The Oceania Regatta will become a completely redesigned ship without peer. $100 is being spent by Oceania on their fleet upgrade to ensure every surface of each and every 1,368 suites and staterooms on this magical ship will be entirely new. That there will be 1.400 marble bathrooms – no, no plastic. Over 100 Artisans and Craftsmen, will be working on the public spaces, bringing a refreshed colour 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 to the beckoning Reception Hall, Regatta will celebrate a rejuvenation so sweeping, Oceania claim you will find it positively unimaginable to resist her welcoming embrace.

She will still be an R-class cruise ship, but will look quite a lot different from when she was built in 1998. There were eight of these wonderful ships build, and whether you are a fan of the Adonia, the Pacific Princess or the Azamara ships, this will be an unrivalled smart version of the classic cruise ship. She will still be holding around 800 guests with an intermit feel and personal service.

This refit is being done to Regatta, Insignia, Nautica and Sirena which means good news for those who love small ships, they are all staying, and all become classic cruise experiences.
