Leading culinary cruise line, Oceania Cruises will launch new Mediterranean voyages next year to tantalize guests to holiday in some of the most breathtaking destinations in Europe.

The line’s Marina and Nautica ships will visit iconic islands in the Aegean and Adriatic seas, lesser-known ports as well as well-loved European resorts.

From Athens, Barcelona, Istanbul , Rome and Lisbon, the two ships will also cruise to hidden gems such as Tirana and Sarande in Albania; Trapani in Sicily, Calvi and Propriano in Corsica and Sibenik in Croatia.

Guests will be able to go on immersive shore excursions such as an adventurous tour of Santorini’s active volcanoes as well as discovering  Boka Bay, one of Europe’s southernmost fjord.

“With shore excursions to inspire everyone, from active adventurous types to history buffs to foodies, our small, luxurious ships are the perfect way to discover this majestic region of the world,” said Frank A Del Rio, President of Oceania Cruises.
