Oceania Cruises

Description


History


Oceania Cruises is a relative youngster when it comes to cruise line companies. Founded in 2002 by cruise industry veterans Frank Del Rio, Joe Watters and Bob Binder, Oceania Cruises fast grew to become one of the world’s largest upper premium cruise lines. The company is based around some pretty strong pillars:

• The Finest Cuisine at Sea™
• Destination Specialists
• Intimate and Luxurious Ships

These form the backbone of their five-star product and the six cruise lines in their fleet.

Oceania Cruises have become increasingly popular with seasoned travellers looking for that little bit extra on their cruise. With a wide range of diverse voyages, calling at over 330 ports worldwide, Oceania Cruises has grown into one of our most popular cruises lines.



Ships


The Oceania Cruises fleet is made up of six cruise lines. All of their cruise lines offer spacious and elegant accommodations from the more intimate 684-guest Regatta, Insignia, Nautica and Sirena to the larger 1,250-guest Marina and Riviera.

Each of the ships in the Oceania fleet oozes character and elegance. All six boast exquisite appointments and details of the kind you would expect to find on an exclusive estate. One thing that all Oceania Cruises has always been built on is the dining experience and this is central to any Oceania cruise. Dining onboard an Oceania cruise is done whenever, wherever and with whoever you like. With up to 6 open seating, gourmet restaurants to choose from including the famed Canyon Ranch cuisine, if you’re a food lover, then Oceania Cruises could be just the ticket.

The accommodation onboard matches the dining experience. Featuring rich Wenge wanly panelling and sumptuous residential furnishings, the rooms are comfortable and elegant in equal measures. The Marina and Riviera are the only two ships at sea to feature suites designed and furnished by Ralph Lauren Home and noted interior designer Dakota Jackson. Now that’s stylish.

Onboard Experience



As you would imagine from one of the world’s upper premium cruise lines, Oceania Cruises are packed with an onboard experience that rivals any on the seas. We’ve already touched on the outstanding food that not only rivals anything else at sea but also on land but what else can you expect on board an Oceania cruise?

One of the distinguishing features of an Oceania Cruise is the Canyon Ranch SpaClub® - an outstanding spa facility that offers you all the amenities you need to rest and relax whilst at sea. Couple this with the country club casual ambiance and you will soon find yourself sitting back and taking in the exceptional personalised service you will receive every step of the way.

In addition to the spa and leisure facilities on board, there is also an extensive enrichment programme that includes the immersive Culinary Discovery Tours™ in the world’s most fascinating destinations. All in all, the onboard experience on an Oceania Cruise is up there with the very best.
