Description

Formed in 2002 by luxury cruise industry veterans Joe Watters and Frank Del Rio, Oceania Cruises three intimate and luxurious 684-guest ships allow you to explore the world in style and comfort. Elegant and mid-size, you’ll find the onboard atmosphere is extremely convivial, and with more than 400 staff members at your disposal, you will experience an exceptional level of personalized service.

You will enjoy the flexibility of four open seating restaurants; you dine when, where and with whom you choose. The 5 Star menus are crafted under the meticulously watchful eye of renowned master chef Jacques Pépin, Executive Culinary Director. Host of numerous public television series, he is one of America's best known chefs, food columnists and cook book authors. He has also served as the personal chef to no less than three French heads of state, including Charles de Gaulle.

Regatta, Insignia and Nautica sail itineraries that span the globe. With an entire world of exotic destinations at your disposal, your choices are virtually boundless. From the yachtsmen’s haven of Antigua to tiny St. Barts or to the lush jungles of Central America, you will experience a world of tropical bliss that you never knew existed. In each and every destination Oceania call upon, the goal is to provide you with the most rewarding, enriching destination experience possible. In many ports, you’ll stay overnight which allows for two days of exploration and provides you with the opportunity to immerse yourself in the history, culture and cuisine. The objective is for each and every guest to experience the destinations, not merely visit.

With so many entertainment and enrichment options on board, there is never a shortage of things to do on an Oceania Cruise, ranging from wine tasting of rare vintage wines to stimulating lectures. Alternatively there’s the spa - a veritable oasis for the mind, body and soul, the Oceania Spa by Mandara elevates pampering to a new level.

Oceania Cruises appeals to discerning, sophisticated travellers in search of world-class cuisine, excellent personal service, and an enriching, in-depth, destination-oriented experience.

Verdict

Oceania’s fleet of three small ships is on par with Holland America/Azamara ships and their rich and luxurious décor, reminiscent of a “country manor”. All the benefits of small ship cruising in that the ships itineraries are not limited to large ports of call. Reasonably priced for a specialist small cruise line. Not particularly child friendly.
