When it comes to luxury cruises, there are very few than match up to Oceania Cruises in terms of quality, elegance and comfort. Today, Oceania Cruises has become a leading name in the world of sophisticated, five star cruises. Founded in 2002, it is the world’s largest upper premium cruise line. With a fleet of five award-winning, luxurious ships, Oceania Cruises offers an unparalleled vacation experience, celebrated for its mesmerizing itineraries to exotic destinations, gourmet culinary delights, and extraordinary comfort.
Oceania’s diverse voyages today call on more than 330 ports across the globe including Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, the South Pacific and the Americas. Be it pristine landscapes, faraway islands, historic cities or modern attractions, each cruise guarantees a memorable experience of history, culture and cuisine.
The cruise-liner initially began with two 684-gtuise cruise ships christened ‘Insignia’ and ‘Regatta’. Later on they added three more ships, the ’Marina’, the ‘Riviera’ and the ‘Nautica’. While the ‘Marina’ and ‘Riviera’ offer extra-ordinary amenities, the ‘Nautica’, on the other hand, lets you explore the remarkable natural beauty and inspiring history throughout Northern Europe, the Mediterranean and Asia, including overnights in Reykjavik (Iceland), Dubai (United Arab Emirates) and Mumbai (India).
With plans to add another ship, Sirena, to their fleet soon, Oceania Cruises can now boast of two 1250-guest and four 684-guest ships that epitomize intimacy, warmth and luxury, with a wide range of lavish, complimentary amenities. Sirena will traverse the globe, from the exotic Caribbean to Miami and the Panama Canal. It also plans to host specialty dining restaurants Toscana and Polo Grill, along with Baristas and the cook-to-order grill Terrace Cafe.
To give your vacation that special, exquisite touch, their itineraries are centered on a relaxed, spaced-out tour of boutique ports and seaside villages that large ships cannot access. With an unmatched guest to staff ratio of 2:1, intimacy and supreme service is guaranteed. Their beautifully designed open-seated restaurants offer exquisite cuisine that it is not only renowned as the finest on the sea, but also challenges the best restaurants ashore.
With recent additions to its cruise packages, Oceania now offers even greater flexibility to its luxury travelers. Their 2016 summer and fall collection features 121 unique sailings, 90 new itineraries (50 of which are extended journeys) and 20 intriguing ports not previously visited. The new itineraries explore all corners of the world and promises to capture the imagination of even the most seasoned traveler.
The 2016-17 Winter Collection will offer as many as 89 sailings ranging from seven days to six months, with 60 new itineraries and 19 new ports of call. From the remote beauty of seaside villages in Papua New Guinea to enticing South American rain forests, the Winter Collection will offer a refreshing mix of popular destinations and enchanting boutique ports unmatched by any other line.
Oceania will now also offer a 17-night sailing aboard the ‘Marina’ from Buenos Aires to Valparaiso (Chile) traversing the southern tip of South America, and covering the Chilean Fjords.
