Casino
Lady Luck always seems to be present in the Casino, coaxing jackpots and eliciting squeals of delight. Take one of the slot machines for a spin or join in a rousing game of blackjack, poker, or roulette.
 top
Card Room
The beautifully decorated Card Room is an inviting and tranquil oasis. Stay at the top of your game and try your hand at bridge, either in tournament format or with newfound friends. Or, gather around one of the many tables for a quiet afternoon or evening of board games.
 top
Fitness Center
Whether you're looking to stay fit or start a new exercise regimen, you'll find everything you need in the state-of-the-art fitness center. This large, airy facility is equipped with the latest exercise equipment. There is also a large aerobics area and a variety of fitness classes staffed by personal trainers.

Spa
The Oceania Spa elevates pampering to a new level. The serene and tranquil ambience encourages you to succumb to an array of revitalizing and rejuvenating treatments. Try a holistic citrus facial, which will leave your face with a youthful, radiant glow. Rich clays and essential oils are used in the body contour wrap, firming the skin and naturally releasing impurities. The warm, vitamin-enriched seawater in the Thalassotherapy whirlpool revives and refreshes the whole body. And the nimble fingers of an able masseuse will slowly soothe away all your cares. You'll want to look as good as you feel, so there's also a beauty salon within the spa where you can enjoy manicures, pedicures, and hairstyling.

Boutiques
Two stylish boutiques feature a bounty of items ranging from sundries to designer casual wear. Feel free to browse through the array of duty-free merchandise, including fine jewelry, fragrances, and Oceania Cruises logo wear.
 top
Oceania@Sea
Stay connected with loved ones back home or easily monitor business developments through Oceania@Sea, a fully staffed, 24-hour Internet center. The computer learning program offers complimentary computer lessons during days at sea. Private one-on-one lessons on various topics are available for a fee. Depending on the number of nights at sea, classes may include Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Office, Web Design, and Adobe Photoshop.

Distinctive Lounges
Each ship has eight distinct lounges and bars, each with its own special ambience. Enjoy your favorite cocktail at Horizons, offering sweeping vistas and live entertainment. Martinis serves numerous incarnations of this famous cocktail in an intimate atmosphere. It features live piano music and is reminiscent of a private gentleman's club. Or, you can visit the Polo Bar to sample an almost infinite variety of premium, single-malt scotch and full-grain whiskeys. Sample a rare vintage amid the opulence of the The Grand Bar or the chicness of Grappa.

Entertainment & Enrichment
Whether it's a 12-piece classical concert, a jazz-and-blues jam session at Horizons, or a magician, comedian, or guest lecturer, Oceania believes that exploration and learning should be wonderfully entertaining. So it should come as no surprise that the enrichment programs are always immensely fascinating.

Guest lecturers don't just present information relevant to the region of the world in which you're sailing. They make it come alive, drawing you in with stories and personal experiences. They know because they're experts. In many cases, they were there in the midst of world events. Renowned politicians, famous authors, and broadway stars - these are the kinds of engaging personalities who lecture aboard the ships. Imagine being able to discuss a favorite book with its author, or question a former ambassador about foreign policy. All the reading and research in the world can't compare with a face-to-face discussion on subject matters important to you.

If you're a performing-arts aficionado, you'll find Oceania's entertainment to be just as enticing and personally satisfying. In the evenings, the ship is filled with music performed by what some say is the finest orchestra at sea. Attend a live classical concert under the stars, or marvel at magicians, comedians, and other headliners. Evenings aboard Regatta and Insignia can be anything you desire. Chat with newfound friends over a cocktail in one of eight lounges. Dance the night away in Horizons to the sounds of a marvelous musical group. Entertainment has never been so enjoyable, enriching, or varied.

Dining
With Oceania Cruises, fine gourmet dining takes on a new dimension. Extraordinary cuisine is the single most important element in differentiating Oceania Cruises from all other cruise lines. Superb five-star menus are crafted under the meticulous, watchful eye of world-renowned master chef Jacques Pepin, the Executive Culinary Director. Under his tutelage, talented chefs create daily gastronomic events that surpass all expectations. Only the finest and freshest ingredients are used in these amazing culinary creations. The wine cellars include a vast collection of vintages from around the world, pleasing to even the most demanding palate. Dinner is an anticipated occasion, accenting each day's discoveries with an impressive selection of gourmet entrees as memorable as the destinations visited.

In the evening, dine at any of the exquisite restaurants, each with its own unique ambience. The open-seating policy means you decide when, where, and with whom you eat. Dine at The Grand Dining Room, Toscana, the Polo Grill steakhouse, or under a canopy of stars at Tapas on the Terrace. For lunch, try the sunlit buffet eatery, the Terrace Cafe, or Waves. For a more traditional breakfast or lunch experience, The Grand Dining Room provides classic offerings to tempt your palate. Of course, should you wish to dine in the privacy of your suite or stateroom, an extensive room service menu is available around the clock.

Suites & Staterooms
Oceania Cruises offers a variety of accommodations to suit any taste or budget. All suites and staterooms are spacious and elegantly appointed with comfortable furnishings and warm woods. Each stateroom is its own private retreat, with comfy sitting areas and plenty of storage space.

While Oceania Cruises offers modestly priced inside and oceanview staterooms, most guests will enjoy watching the sun rise from their own private veranda. Guests feel like royalty in elegant suites with large sliding-glass doors and 24-hour butler service. These suites offer all the amenities you'd expect to find in a world-class hotel - comfortable seating, an intimate area for private in-room dining, a refrigerated minibar, and ample closet space.

All Oceania Cruises staterooms and suites feature the unique Tranquility Beds. These beds unique feature the highest quality mattress, 350-thread count linens, plush silk-cut duvets, and goose-down pillows.

Itineraries
Whether you're visiting ancient cradles of civilization or exotic wonders of a tropical paradise, Oceania Cruises will capture it all in magnificent style. They've gone to great lengths to create an environment that fosters lifelong memories. Oceania Cruises sails seasonally to ports in Europe, the Caribbean, South America, and North and Central America.

The Ships
Oceania has two intimate and luxurious 684-passenger ships: the Regatta and Insignia. Formerly the Renaissance R1 and R2, respectively, these two midsized ships afford incomparable luxury, including cuisine that is simply the finest at sea. With only 684 guests to pamper, the 400 staff members cater to every whim with highly personalized service. There is a sense of warmth and intimacy throughout, so the ambience resembles that of a private country club - casual, yet elegant.

Imbued with a warmth and intimacy rarely found at sea, the atmosphere aboard Regatta and Insignia is reminiscent of an upscale, private country club. It is casual elegance at its finest. Relaxed. Comfortable. Unpretentious. Although highly sophisticated, the ambience is devoid of formality, so you can leave the tuxedos and evening gowns at home. Just bring a desire to enjoy life at your own speed, on your own terms.
 top
Onboard Experience
As the day breaks, a world of opportunity unfolds. Join the planned activities, create your own diversions, or simply relax and go about your day as you see fit. Pass the time reading in the English-inspired library, or perhaps a little shopping is in order in the two stylish boutiques. Lose yourself amid the museum-quality art collection or just relax while sampling rare vintages at a wine tasting hosted in one of eight distinct lounges and bars onboard.
 top
High Tea
High Tea, one of cruising's most time-honored traditions, is served promptly at 4 PM each day. The pastry chefs take center stage with a colorful collection of English finger sandwiches, scones, and other goodies fit for royalty. Live entertainment and gracious service complete an elegant, refined afternoon.
