Who doesn’t want to cruise around the world visiting exotic destinations, experiencing new cultures, and immersing themselves in a new world of adventure? There’s nothing quite like being out on the open ocean awaiting your arrival at yet another unique part of the world.
However, not all cruise lines are dedicated to providing you with an extraordinary trip rich with culture as well as luxury. When choosing a luxury cruise line, there are several important things to consider to ensure you will have the most memorable time possible!
With Oceania Cruises you’re not limited to the typical cruise destinations, but have a wide range of options from Africa to Asia, the Mediterranean to the Amazon, from Alaska to New Zealand. Got the travel bug? Take advantage of Oceania Cruises’ 180-day all around the world cruise where you can fulfill your grandest dreams.
The ship plays a crucial role in how enjoyable your cruise will be. Oceania Cruises has six luxury ships that provide you with an intimate upscale environment.
The Regatta, Insignia, Nautica, Sirena, Marina and Riviera dock at some of the world’s most stunning ports. Due to the size of the ships, they’re able to dock at smaller boutique ports that most large cruise ships cannot access. You’ll see it all from historic cities to modern meccas to charming seaside villages nestled along sparkling coastlines. There’s no better way to travel in luxury all the while experiencing the history, culture, art and cuisine of marvelous destinations along the way.
So what is life like on board these luxury ships you might be wondering?
Well, the service provided by Oceania Cruises is unmatched. Not only will you get to experience leading world destinations, but you will be treated as a cherished friend while on board. The staff and crew are incredibly hospitable and generous and make a constant effort to remember individual preferences and exceed your expectations.
On board the six ships there is a sense of family and community as each ship caters to either 684 or 1,250 guests. You’ll never feel like you are just a number in a mass of people when you cruise Oceania. Since the ships provide a more intimate feel there is never a crowd and no lines to wait in. What a relief! Who wants to go on a vacation and have to deal with that? This makes it so much easier to plan the trip to be exactly what you want rather than having to account for other people.
A smaller ship and mellow, intimate environment make the biggest difference. You’re able to spend more time ashore exploring because getting back onto the ship takes only minutes rather than hours and there are more evening calls and overnight stays at the ports than most cruise lines.
To get a better idea of the values and mission of Oceania Cruises, take a look at this heartfelt video:
One of the aspects Oceania Cruises is best known for is their cuisine and dining experience. Unlike many other cruise lines, every meal is prepared a la minute rather than en masse. This allows the chefs to personalize each dish so every palate is satisfied. A feature that guests really enjoy is the open-seating that multiple dining venues provide for no additional charge.
The dining experience is relaxing and delicious. You’ll be able to find whatever you’re craving whether it’s steak or seafood from Polo Grill, gourmet Italian at Toscana, Asian at Red Ginger (Marina, Riviera, Sirena), or French country cuisine at Jacques (Marina and Riviera). La Reserve (Marina and Riviera) offers vintage wine with expert gourmet menu pairings. If you’re looking for something quick and casual for breakfast, lunch or dinner you can head to Terrace Café for delicious meals and snacks. Hanging by the pool? Grab a gourmet burger or a hand-dipped milkshake at Waves Grill.
The cuisine options on Oceania Cruises’ ships seem never-ending. You can even host private dinners at Privée (Marina and Riviera) for those more intimate occasions.
With a baristas coffee/pastry bar and free room service all day and night long, you’ll never go hungry.
