Cruise Ship Regatta Returns
By: David Mills


ROCKLAND, ME - On Friday October 21st the Oceania cruise ship Regatta returned to Rockland on the way to New York. Regatta spent the day anchored in the harbor well passengers and crew came ashore. The crew from Oceania Regatta were able to go to such stores like Walmart and wherever else they needed to go. Passengers were able to walk main street in Rockland to explore shops, places to eat, museums and art galleries. Not only could the passengers explore Rockland, they were able to visit Camden, so they could walk main street and visit shops. Providing transportation  for the cruise ship passengers to get to Camden were Schooner Bay Taxi of Rockland.

Sleek, elegantly charming, Regatta is the Flagship of the Oceania Cruises fleet. Her decks are resplendent in the finest teak, custom stone, tile work, her lounges, suites and staterooms boast luxurious, neo-classical furnishings, Regatta offers every luxury you expect. Four unique, open seating restaurants, a world class fitness center and spa, 8 lounges and bars, casino and 342 lavish suites and luxurious staterooms, nearly 70% of which feature private verandas. And with just 684 guests to pamper, our 400 professionally trained European staff ensures you will want for nothing.
