Riviera Istanbul … Oceania Cruises.

The mere sight of the ocean is entrancing. It’s a magical place to be. Life slows down, the mind eases and the smile blooms when on the high seas. Sailing, cruising … it’s easy, convenient and relaxing. They’re great for families and the best part is you wake up in a new place (almost) every morning.

You get to see multiple countries and cities without unpacking your suitcase!

Travelling tends to magnify all human emotions, but excitement cannot be curtailed as details emerge of the 2024 voyage collection from Oceania Cruises. It’s the line’s largest itinerary launch to date, with more than 350 voyages.

The collection includes voyages to Europe, Alaska, Canada, Asia, Australia & New Zealand, Africa, South America, the South Pacific and the Caribbean, including over 130 grand voyages across seven ships and all seven continents.

The President and CEO of Oceania Cruises, Howard Sherman, says this collection, has set a whole new standard for destination innovation.

“There’s an astounding mix of marquee destinations and exotic new locales, blended together in creatively crafted voyage offerings. Next to our reputation for serving The Finest Cuisine at Sea, Oceania Cruises is widely acclaimed for developing the most enticing and destination-rich itineraries in the cruise industry.”

The destination compilation is quite amazing.

Asia & Africa: with more than three dozen sailings in the regions, Oceania Cruises showcases these intriguing lands in a fashion that has no peer. Riviera will chart her inaugural season in the region sailing from Arabia to India, to southeast Asia, the Philippines, Vietnam, China, South Korea, and Japan. Nautica will explore the Far East while also offering up a delightful array of voyages that showcase South Africa, Mozambique, Mayotte, and the Seychelles, and Regatta will offer a series of voyages that is a kaleidoscope of these fabled countries. There are also copious opportunities to explore singular countries or regions with in-depth immersions of Japan, Arabia, and Indochina.

Caribbean, Panama Canal & Mexico: renowned for creative, immersive itineraries, Oceania Cruises offers an uncommonly diverse and creative roster of sailings to the Caribbean, Panama Canal, and Mexico. Itineraries include off-the-beaten-path destinations such as Bonaire, Dominica, Guadeloupe and St. Vincent along with the beguiling yacht harbors of Gustavia, Rodney Bay, Tortola and Port Royal, to name a few. Sailing westward, travellers can immerse themselves in the storied cultures of Mexico, Belize, Honduras, and Guatemala. Panama beckons with its world-changing canal, the colonial charm of Colón and the glittering, cosmopolitan modernity of Panama City.

Europe 2024 will be the brand’s most expansive and diverse European season to date. With six ships positioned around the continent, the destinations are as diverse as Greenland and Iceland in the north and west, to the Holy Lands of Egypt and Israel in the south and east, and everywhere in between. Every voyage is a celebration of history, culture and cuisine in a myriad of mesmerising destinations. From the glittering jewels of the Greek Isles, Italian Riviera and France’s famed Côte d’Azur to the delightful hidden gems of Norway’s fjord-lined coast and the rugged outposts of Greenland and Iceland, these 2024 European itineraries are a study in diversity. Insignia, Nautica, Marina and Sirena will spend the majority of the season exploring Europe’s northern reaches and the western wine countries. Riviera and Vista will call the Mediterranean home with a seemingly endless bounty of voyages to Spain, France, Italy, Croatia, Greece, Turkey, Malta, Israel, Egypt and more.

North America: Regatta, Insignia, and Nautica will offer close to three dozen enticing explorations of Alaska, New England, Canada, Bermuda and the United States’ colonial south. Regatta will reprise her perennially popular Alaska season with a series of voyages that showcases the region in all its glory. Must-see destinations include Icy Strait Point, Kodiak, Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, Sitka, Wrangell, Prince Rupert and Victoria. On the east coast, Insignia and Nautica will offer sailings to Bermuda, New England and Canada’s maritime provinces from New York City, Boston and Montreal.

Vista Lisbon … Oceania Cruises.

South America: from the lush and verdant tropical clime of the Amazon to the rugged, glacially carved coastline of Chile, South America is a vast continent brimming with thrilling explorations and vibrant heritage. Marina will sail the entire continent and will even take a breathtaking diversion down to Paradise Bay, Admiralty Bay and Half Moon Island in Antarctica.

South Pacific, Australia & New Zealand: Oceania Cruises is greatly expanding its offering by having two ships in the region – Regatta and Nautica. Regatta presents a renewed focus on New Zealand and Australia, including a 35-day holiday circumnavigation of the continent. There is also a cornucopia of voyages that follows the Southern Cross across the Pacific and up to Polynesia where Nautica offers a series of four 10-day sailings roundtrip from Papeete.

Echoing the words of André Gide, French author and winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature: “One doesn’t discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.”
