Oceania Cruises is the world’s top-rated, upper-premium cruise line and offers an unrivaled combination of superb cuisine, elegant accommodations, personalized service and great value. Award-winning itineraries visit more than 300 alluring ports in Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, the Americas and, for the first time, a paradise we know as the South Pacific!
Weather aboard the 684-guest Regatta, Insignia or Nautica, or the brand new 1,250-guest Marina (to be followed by a sister ship Riviera in April 2012), elegance and luxury is beautifully blended with intimacy and warmth. Oceania’s mid-size ships offer large-ship amenities thus all the indulgences you could possibly imagine. The ships naturally exude a warm, inviting ambiance that instantly allows you to be yourself and at ease. They are refreshingly casual and friendly, almost like being in a private country club of like-minded members where everyone knows your name, but without any pretension or the need for tuxedos and evening gowns. The moment you step onboard, you know – this is no ordinary cruise experience.
Offering the finest cuisine at sea, Oceania’s very own executive culinary director – renowned master chef Jacques Pépin – keeps a watchful eye over the five-star menus that are all prepared and served à la minute. Dine where, when and with whom you choose in up to six distinctive open-seating gourmet restaurants – all offered at no additional charge.
Staterooms and suites are all generously proportioned and beautifully decorated with traditional hardwoods, rich fabrics and fine furnishings – every square foot designed for immense comfort and convenience. More than simply a stateroom, they are a private retreat where you can relax and recharge – be it on your private teak veranda as you look dreamily out to the horizon, or inside on your very own ‘Prestige Tranquility Bed’ (coupled of course with 1,000 thread-count Egyptian cotton linens, plush silk Italian Duvets, fluffy goose-down pillows and hand quilted throws). Custom-milled French and Italian toiletries complete the scene, which in a word is heavenly.
Canyon Ranch SpaClub® is a recent addition to all ships in the fleet, and on top of massages and treatments, offers lectures, cooking demonstrations and Canyon Ranch cuisine options in the onboard restaurants. If being pampered by the Spa is not at the top of your list, then an abundance of other activities await you: a well-stocked library, premium champagne & cheese tastings, movies under the stars, a friendly game of bridge and critically acclaimed headline entertainers, to name but a few.
While superb cuisine, elegant stateroom amenities and varied onboard activities are certainly essential to your cruise experience, equally so is the service. Only those with impeccable credentials who intrinsically embody the spirit of Oceania Cruises have been chosen to serve guests onboard an Oceania vessel. They come from the world’s finest boutique hotels and the most exquisite restaurants – expect to be dazzled by the depth of the staff’s commitment, as they magically anticipate your wishes and tirelessly fulfil them. Warm, genuine smiles come naturally. Greeting you by name, remembering your preferences, and happily granting your desires only touch upon their innate abilities.
