Weeks later, we’re still reminiscing about our incredible cruise to Alaska. It was 10 blissful days of the great Alaskan outdoors, amazing food and wine, and tons of good old-fashioned family fun – deck games, board games, trivia – did we mention the great wine and lots of laughs? Here are a few of our favorite moments.
1. Our floatplane excursion to Misty Fjords from Ketchikan – it was most definitely equal parts adrenaline and awe.
2. Shuffleboard paired with a good rosé and Alaskan skies – how can you go wrong?
3. Experiencing Sawyer Glacier. We got up close and personal with the glaciers, which you can only do on a smaller ship like Oceania Cruises.
4. The moment we learned this fun fact: not everyone knows how much whales like a good sauvignon blanc.
5. Watching brown bears in Sitka. Despite their imposing appearance, the bears were delightfully playful in their antics, almost juvenile.
We had such a great time, we’re already planning where our next family vacation on Oceania Cruises will take us!

Visitors to Central America stroll among stunning Mayan ruins that stir the imagination about a lost civilization’s great past. But what would it feel like to be an ancient Maya and actually sit in the stands of a ball court and watch a game?

We’ve celebrated several significant milestones at Oceania Cruises over the past few years, from the launch of our first newly built ship, Marina, to the celebration of ten years at sea. This week I joined Regatta as she emerged from dry dock to embark on a 10-day Alaskan voyage from Vancouver to Seattle. It was immediately apparent that another pinnacle had been reached.
As Blogger-at-Large for Oceania Cruises, I have had the great fortune to sail on Regatta, Insignia and Nautica several times over the past few years. With only 684 guests on board, these ships feel as warm, welcoming and intimate as smaller vessels while also offering the conveniences and amenities of the larger ships. In other words, they are perfect. So it was hard for me to imagine how Oceania Cruises could improve on perfection.
wrapping up another fantastic summer in Alaska with a final stop in San
Francisco before following sunny skies to the Southern Hemisphere. Highlights
of the summer included Oceania Cruises’ 10-year anniversary sailing with
Chairman and Founder Frank Del Rio and his wife, Marcia – godmother of Regatta – and stops in destinations as far west as Kodiak and Seward. As Regatta calls on San Francisco, this seems
like the perfect time to share some of the amazing shoreside activities
available from this charming city by the bay.
