Oceania Cruises was only recently formed in 2002 by cruise industry veterans Joe Watters, Frank Del Rio and Bob Binder. It is the world’s largest upper premium cruise line which has built itself up on the pillars of excellence in cuisine, reliability, elegance and luxury. The Mission Statement of Oceania Cruises states that, “Oceania Cruises will provide the highest quality cruise product for mature and discerning travelers by offering the finest culinary experience at sea, meticulous attention to detail, and a warm and inviting country club-casual ambience on every voyage.”
With a convivial and pleasant atmosphere Oceania Cruises facilitates a refined and sophisticated travel experience. Oceania Cruise’s 5 mid-sized ships are luxurious, opulent and classy and contain state of the art culinary, entertainment and fitness facilities.
Oceania Cruises is delighted to introduce the highly-anticipated Marina and Riviera. They will join their celebrated, prized sister ships Regatta, Insignia and Nautica maintaining the high standards of Oceania Cruises in terms of luxury and impeccable service.
Fine Dining and Cuisine
Oceania Cruises have made the claim that their cuisine is “the finest in the sea” which may seem a bit audacious; however with the expertise of world renowned master chef Jacques Pepin as executive culinary director, passengers are inclined to agree. The intimate nature of these cruises is reflected in the ingenious dishes prepared on a daily basis by the master himself and passengers can always expect sumptuous delicacies in up to 6 unique dining establishments, each presenting a diverse and mouthwatering menu. The diversity of these restaurants will ensure passengers never get bored. The Grand Dining Room is the main dining room and serves familiar continental cuisine, while restaurants like the Terrace Café and the Polo Grill are more specialized.
Oceania sails to an incredible 330 ports around the world. The slightly smaller size of these ships allows them to discover hidden gems by accessing ports a bit off-the-beaten-path.
Oceania Cruises has established itself as a pioneer of extended overnights, allowing passengers to truly get an in-depth sense of the rich culture and fascinating history rooted in the cities they visit. This respect for the luxury of time allows you to absorb enthralling locations such as the scattered islands of paradisiacal Greece, and truly experience the exquisite culture of various Asian cities. You will have professional experts at hand to guide you through the meticulously planned on-shore excursions, ensuring you get the most out of your visit.
Lifestyle and Activities
The phrase ‘holistic entertainment’ encapsulates what is in store for you aboard the vessels of Oceania Cruises. Whether you prefer to wheedle away the hours reading comfortably in a private cabana or jog around the oval track allowing the fresh sea breeze to invigorate you, there is such a diverse array or diversions that you will never grow weary.
Other facilities and entertainment options include; a swimming pool, a personal trainer service, guest lecturers, musical performances and a Monte Carlo-style casino!
