Oceania Cruises

Formed in 2002 by luxury cruise industry veterans Frank Del Rio, Joe Watters and Bob Binder, Oceania Cruises is the world’s largest premium cruise line. Exciting and exotic worldwide itineraries are enhanced by extensive shore excursion choices and expert onboard lecturers. Fine dining – acclaimed as the “Finest at Sea™ ”– is served in a choice of open-seating restaurants including speciality dining at no extra charge. Living areas are sumptuous, with almost all accommodations having a private veranda and butler service in all suites. The culmination is a warm and welcoming ambiance that is fast becoming the choice of the more discerning traveller.

Their intimate and luxurious ships allow you to explore the world in unequalled style and comfort. Sophisticated, stylish and distinctly mid-size, you’ll find the onboard atmosphere is extremely convivial, and with an unrivalled level of personalised service as a result of having two staff members for every three guests.

As the leader in destination cruising, Oceania Cruises sails to more than 400 ports around the globe. Itineraries are unique in that they call on the perfect mix of must-see marquee and boutique, off-the-beaten-path ports. Multiple overnight calls afford an in-depth, enriching destination experience and allow travellers to immerse themselves in the cuisine, culture and history of the ports we visit.


R-Class; Insignia, Nautica, Regatta and Sirena

The differences between Oceania Cruises and our competitors ships is pronounced, especially with regard to dining, service and general ambiance. Our R-Class ships are just 30,000 tonnes in size and carry just 684 guests which allows us to visit the smaller more intimate ports that the large ships cannot get to.

Insignia, Nautica, Regatta and Sirena feature a world-class fitness centre and spa, six lounges and bars, a casino, and 342 lavish suites and luxurious staterooms, nearly 70% of which feature private verandas. 

O-Class; Marina & Riviera

Marina and Riviera are ideal for clients who wish to upgrade from the large ship premium lines. Each vessel features nine dining venues, including six open-seating gourmet restaurants and standard staterooms that are as large as the mini-suites typically found on the premium lines.

The O-Class deliver an unrivalled cruse experience. At 60,000 tonnes each and carrying just 1250 guests, Marina and Riviera offer a cruise experience that is simply unrivalled at sea.

Oceania Cruises has announced an order for two new ships - to be delivered in 2022 and 2025.

The two 67,000 gross ton Allura-Class ships will each accommodate approximately 1,200 guests. This new class of mid-size cruise vessels will retain all the warmth, popular design elements and signature amenities of the line’s award-winning Marina and Riviera while affording guests an additional level of comfort, convenience and many new luxury amenities.

“This new class of ships will represent an evolution of the Oceania Cruises experience with all the elements our guests treasure – a warm, intimate, residential style; the most spacious standard staterooms afloat; amazing suites, and of course, the finest cuisine at sea,” stated Bob Binder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Oceania Cruises.

We’re very excited to announce our new program OceaniaNEXT, which includes a sweeping array of dramatic enhancements so transformational, they are inspirational. This ambitious initiative will elevate virtually every facet of the Oceania Cruises guest experience to new levels. From thoughtfully crafted new dining experiences and reimagined menus to the dramatic re-inspiration of the iconic Regatta-Class ships, we’re enhancing every aspect of the Oceania Cruises experience.

Regatta, Insignia, Nautica and Sirena essentially will become four new ships in a re-inspiration process without peer. Every surface of every suite and stateroom will be entirely new, while in the public spaces, a refreshed color palette of soft sea and sky tones will surround a tasteful renewal of fabrics, furnishings and lighting fixtures that exquisitely encompasses the inimitable style and comfort of Oceania Cruises. From the bejeweled new chandeliers in the gracious Grand Dining Room and beckoning Reception Hall to the sleek and calming Canyon Ranch Spa, each ship will celebrate a rejuvenation so sweeping, you will find it positively unimaginable to resist their welcoming embrace.

Reasons to Book

Mid-size, elegant ships catering to just 684 or 1,250 guests
Thanks to their size, Oceania ships can visit boutique ports and seaside villages that large ships cannot access, and because the amount of passengers is not as large as on most ships, there's no crowds and no waiting lines. A voyage with Oceania Cruises is like no other, a luxury granted by our mid-sized ships.

The Finest Cuisine at Sea™

Some of the finest cuisine at sea, served in a variety of distinctive open-seating restaurants, at no additional charge. Meals are never prepared en masse: every single dish is created on order, just for you. 

Culinary Programme

Oceania ships feature a Gourmet culinary programme created by world-renowned Master Chef Jacques Pépin. Marina and Riviera feature the first hands-on cooking school at sea, teaching you how to prepare a variety of dishes at your own fully equipped workstation. Learn everything from regional cuisines to barbecue grilling. At select ports, you may also accompany the instructor chefs while stopping for fresh ingredients ashore at local markets during Culinary Discovery Tours.

Sumptuous surroundings

Oceania has one of the youngest fleet in premium-class cruising with 85% of accommodations featuring private verandas. Each of their staterooms is designed to be grand, remarkably spacious and so comfortable that each moment spent behind closed doors feels like being in an oasis all of your own. Decorated with soothing colours, soft textures and stylish furnishing, they all feature an exclusive Prestige Tranquility Bed with 1,000-thread-count-linens, plus towels and Bulgari amenities.

The palatial Owner’s Suites, Vista Suites and Oceania Suites elevate sea-going opulence to new levels with custom Empire-style furnishings, iconic designs from Ralph Lauren Home, or the brilliance of contemporary designer Dakota Jackson.
