A spectacular menagerie of diverse and exotic destinations, your world is just waiting to be discovered, and there is no better way to explore it than on the elegant ships of Oceania Cruises.
Your World | Our unique itineraries are specifically designed to showcase the most fascinating destinations across the globe. As Regatta, Insignia, Nautica, Marina and Riviera are all comfortably mid-size, each ship can call on the world’s most desirable ports, from historic cities to modern meccas to charming towns nestled along sparkling coastlines. On a voyage with Oceania Cruises, each day offers the exciting opportunity to experience the history, culture, art and cuisine of a wondrous new destination.
Your Way | Whatever corner of the globe beckons you to explore, Oceania Cruises takes you there in comfort and style. Relax onboard the luxurious ships and savor exquisite cuisine that not only is renowned as the finest at sea but also rivals the best restaurants ashore. Inspired by Master Chef Jacques Pépin, these culinary delights have always been a hallmark that distinguishes the Oceania Cruises experience from any other. Considering the uncompromising quality, perhaps the most remarkable aspect of an Oceania Cruises voyage is its incredible value. Lavish complimentary amenities abound, and there are never supplemental charges in the onboard restaurants. Value packages ensure that sipping a glass of wine, surfing the Internet or enjoying a shore excursion is both convenient and affordable. Every moment spent on an Oceania Cruises voyage confirms that this is Your World. Your Way.®
Mid-size holds great benefits | Once you sail one of our mid-size ships, you will never settle for anything less, nor will you ever again be satisfied with anything more in regard to size, because larger ships simply cannot provide the pronounced intimacy and many advantages of Oceania Cruises. Our ships cater to just 684 pampered guests on Regatta, Insignia and Nautica and 1,250 privileged guests on Marina and Riviera. Warmth and conviviality come naturally. Elegance and grace are givens. The ambiance is exceptionally relaxed and personal as we singularly focus on your individual desires. Consequently, service standards soar, guests easily develop a rapport with staff and fellow guests, and the friendships only deepen as the days pass effortlessly.
All the elements for bliss | Being mid-size even facilitates going ashore, as our ships can slip into boutique ports off-limits to larger vessels. With no need to rush or worry about crowds, you can savor the defining elements that make our ships so special. Our cuisine, “the finest at sea,” is carefully prepared à la minute. Appointments for spa services are readily available in the relaxing Canyon Ranch SpaClub®. A comfortable chaise always awaits should you decide to lounge by the pool. Life just seems to proceed at a more courteous pace. The differences are sizeable, noticeable and so refreshing.
Feel at home away from home | We have carefully selected the rich color of every fabric, the vibrant glow of every sconce and the plush cushion of each settee, designing each detail so that our ships naturally exude a warm, inviting ambiance imbuing everyone onboard with a sense of elegance and comfort. You are instantly put at ease, and it’s so refreshingly casual and friendly that it’s like being in a private country club where everyone knows your name.
Come and go as you please | This is elegance without pretense nor the need for tuxedos and evening gowns. The overwhelming sense of comfort and belonging seems to kindle geniality. Striking up conversations and making new friends becomes effortless. Meet over cocktails in Martinis and recount adventures ashore. Ask another couple to join you for a friendly game of cards. You will find it exceedingly easy to be sociable. Even so, sometimes you may feel like relaxing by yourself. Take comfort in knowing that there are plenty of private retreats reserved just for you.
Retreat into a private world | Everybody yearns for a private retreat where they can truly relax and recharge. This was the guiding principle behind our splendid suites and staterooms. We designed them to be grand, remarkably spacious and so immensely comfortable that each moment spent behind closed doors feels like being in an oasis of luxury all your own. Our accommodations are handsomely appointed with soothing colors, soft textures, stylish furnishings, extended queen mattresses featuring luxurious linens, plush towels and custom-milled French and Italian toiletries.
Largest veranda staterooms at sea | Marvel at a stunning sunset from the comfort of your furnished private veranda, a luxury included in all suites and the vast majority of our staterooms. The Veranda Staterooms on Marina and Riviera, measuring a generous 282 square feet, bear the distinction of being the largest at sea. Feel free to indulge in the generous amenities and watch live news, first-run movies or DVDs on your flat-screen television. When it’s time to retire, slip between the 1,000-thread-count linens of the Prestige Tranquility Bed, an Oceania Cruises exclusive, knowing that tomorrow will be just as wonderful.
The finest cuisine at sea | Boldly claiming to serve “the finest cuisine at sea” might seem to be an overstatement. But we wouldn’t make such an immodest assertion if not for the tremendous contribution of the legendary Master Chef Jacques Pépin. As our Executive Culinary Director, he inspires our chefs to perform feats of gastronomic wizardry. Memorable dining begins with open-seating, as it allows you to dine when you are ready and with whomever you choose. Regardless of which of our restaurants you select, there are no additional dining charges. Enjoy Toscana’s authentic Italian dishes, Polo Grill’s steakhouse fare, Continental cuisine in the Grand Dining Room, and made-to-order favorites in the Terrace Café.
Delightful Marina and Riviera | Marina and Riviera both offer two additional complimentary dining venues: Jacques, the eminent Jacques Pépin’s exquisite French bistro, and the contemporary Asian culinary masterpiece called Red Ginger. You can also indulge morning, afternoon and night in delicate pastries and freshly made tea sandwiches along with illy® specialty coffees at Baristas. To explore epicurean delights in a more private setting, try Marina and Riviera’s La Reserve by Wine Spectator, where a maximum of 24 bons vivants may indulge in private wine and food pairings. For the ultimate in exclusivity onboard Marina and Riviera, Privée may be reserved for the evening for parties of up to 10 guests, who will enjoy a menu selected from Polo Grill, Toscana or a combination of both.
Learn by experiencing | For those enthusiasts seeking enlightenment beyond that found in a library or a lecture, Marina and Riviera offer the only custom designed and truly hands-on cooking school at sea. At the Bon Appétit Culinary Center, you will learn and prepare with your own hands a variety of exquisite dishes at your own fully equipped workstation in a state-of-the art teaching kitchen. Master chefs from around the world offer guidance and inspiration to fine-tune your techniques, but you will actually prepare the dishes yourself. It’s the ultimate way to learn and truly absorb every step of each recipe, especially since at select ports you may accompany the chef instructors while shopping for fresh ingredients ashore at local markets.
More than a spa | Healthy living and spiritual awareness are at the very heart of the Canyon Ranch philosophy. Oceania Cruises and Canyon Ranch have recreated that unique, inspiring environment onboard our ships. Through fitness, exquisite Canyon Ranch cuisine and a multitude of healing therapies, you can discover ways to unleash your untapped potential and make positive changes in your life. Of course, the star element of any Canyon Ranch experience is a spa treatment that will leave you wondering how anything could feel quite so perfect.
Restore and revitalize | Lose yourself in deep relaxation with a signature Canyon Stone Massage or perhaps a Thai Massage, which originated in Buddhist monasteries. Ease into the soothing waters of the private, open-air whirlpool spa. All Concierge Level and Suite guests enjoy FREE unlimited access to the beautifully appointed Canyon Ranch SpaClub private Spa Terrace. More opportunities await you in the state-of-the-art fitness center, where you may exercise on the latest fitness equipment or join a class in indoor cycling, aerobics, Pilates or yoga. We encourage you to attend complimentary presentations on how to enhance nutritional balance.
Whatever strikes your fancy | The immense variety of entertainment options onboard our ships ensures that your interest will be constantly piqued. Enjoy one of our esteemed, often famous guest lecturers, who might be a historian, naturalist or former ambassador eager to share insider knowledge. Our musical performances are equally enriching and, depending on the voyage, may include a live pianist, classical string quartet, dynamic vocalists and spectacular headliners. Later you may wish to try your luck in the elegant Monte Carlo-style casino.
A Great Value for Friends and Family Alike | Although no two definitions of value are the same, true value is quite easy to recognize. Simply stated, it is the concept of offering much more than ever imagined with absolutely no compromise in quality. You will find that traveling with Oceania Cruises is truly one of the world’s most outstanding values. Our 2 for 1 Cruise Fares even include FREE AIRFARE*, regardless of current airfare prices. Indeed, you’ll find so many important and valuable extras are offered at no additional charge. Value of this sort, while rare, is the distinguishing characteristic of Oceania Cruises.
Included Amenities – an Oceania Cruises tradition | Onboard we never charge a dining supplement in our exquisite specialty restaurants. An Oceania Cruises guest always enjoys FREE and unlimited soft drinks, bottled water, specialty coffees, teas and juices. Wine, beer and spirits can be purchased at an incredible value with our new beverage packages, and our new Internet packages feature enormous discounts as well. And perhaps most importantly, our shore excursion collections offer extraordinary savings of up to 40% off à la carte retail.
Impeccable service | Our ships boast an impressive staff-to-guest ratio, but it’s more than sheer numbers that elevates our personalized service into the sublime. Our staff genuinely care about making you happy. Being of service comes naturally, a trait as innate as their unbridled enthusiasm. You can see it in their warm smiles and hear it in the sincere tone of their voices, as our staff zealously devote their full attention to fulfilling your wishes. Their commitment runs deep and never diminishes, no matter what the task.
Only the best of the best | Not everyone holds the impeccable credentials to join our award-winning staff. Only those who have distinguished themselves in the world’s finest hotels and most exquisite restaurants will do. They are true professionals with the rare ability to fastidiously attend to every detail and magically anticipate your wishes. The ease with which they remember your name, preferences and wants borders on miraculous. Nowhere is this talent more evident than among the English-trained Butlers who meticulously care for guests in all our suites.
