Dining Aboard Regatta
Regatta has four restaurants, ranging from poolside casual Waves Grill to the Grand Dining Room. All have open seating. There are also addtional meal spots, such as the deck cafe. Wines have been selected by the staff of Wine Spectator, matched to the menus of the restaurants on board. However, Oceania understands that many of their guests have an interest in wine, and like to try local varieties. To this end Oceania generously allows you to purchase wine in a port of call and bring it onboard, limited to three bottles per stateroom. As you are in a port each day, this should be ample. You are welcome to enjoy their wine in the comfort and privacy of your stateroom, or, if you prefer, enjoy your wine in one of the dining rooms. Any wine consumed in the dining room or a public area will be subject to a corkage fee of $20 per bottle.
The casual ambiance of Waves, which occupies a spacious, shaded corner near the swimming pool, belies its mouth-watering luncheon menu. Come straight from lounging about in the sun, or for a quick meal between tours, and dine from an outstanding menu of gourmet burgers, tangy barbecue and succulent seafood. It's an open galley, so you can watch the chefs grill each delectable item to order, while you select side dishes such as healthy, garden-fresh salads and crispy, hand-cut fries. For a grand finale, savor a cup of creamy gelato, a bowl of homemade ice cream, or a hand-dipped, made-to-order milkshake. Sample menu (pdf 2MB)
Thoroughly classic in every sense, the intimate Polo Grill embodies a certain timelessness long associated with the world's finest steakhouses. A triumph of elegance, the restaurant possesses a gracious, traditional atmosphere, courtesy of its crisp, white linen tablecloths, dark-wood furnishings and supple, high-back leather chairs. The Hollywood legends, whose black-and-white photographs grace the walls, would clearly feel at home in the Polo Grill. It is that classic, especially on evenings when the moonlight can be seen dappling the sea through the restaurant's expansive windows. Each course is a consummate expression of perfection, a time-honored favorite. Sample menu (pdf 2MB)
Hailed for its simplicity and keenly balanced flavors, Tuscan cuisine is firmly rooted in family traditions. Many of the recipes used to create the authentic Tuscan dishes in Toscana have been handed down from generation to generation, coming to us from our own Italian culinary staff. Similarly, the sommeliers are from long lines of wine-producing families, so they inherently know the characteristics of each vintage and can suggest a wine that perfectly complements your meal. Presented on elegant, custom-designed Versace china, each dish is a masterpiece that exemplifies the essence of Tuscany. Sample desert menu (pdf 2MB) Sample wine list (1.5MB)
Exceedingly stately and dignified, the Grand Dining Room exudes a warm, convivial ambiance. This is luxury on a grand scale, but approachably so. The handsome décor captures the spirit and splendor of a European, 5-star restaurant. Tables are beautifully set with Versace bone china, sparkling Riedel crystal, gleaming Christofle silver and fine cotton linens. Majestic, hand-painted frescoes adorn the domed ceiling. Perhaps most remarkable, the elegant setting is but a prelude to the magnificent culinary feats to follow. Service from the formally attired wait staff is impeccable, as they serve an astonishing variety of French-inspired Continental dishes, course after course.

Regatta has five bars for relaxing and enjoying a cocktail or wine, and complementary room service is available. The Horizons bar is an ideal place to unwind after a hard day's sightseeing. Or perhaps the main lounge is more your style. If you’re an aficionado of the arts, you’ll find the entertainment just as engrossing and personally satisfying. In the evenings, the ship is filled with music performed by, what some have called, the finest orchestra at sea. Attend a live classical concert under the stars, the notes gently wafting through the misty night. Marvel at the magicians, comedians and other headliners, or dance the night away in Horizons to the sounds of a marvelous musical group. Entertainment has never been so enjoyable, enriching or varied.
