With an incredible array of exotic and iconic destinations, there is no better way of experiencing the world than on one of the six elegant ships from Oceania Cruises. Each possesses a feel of an exclusive private country club, in which service and luxury is paramount. Oceania Cruises has picked up many ‘Best in dining’ awards and it’s easy to see why.
Itineraries range from 7 to 180 days, with many of the ports allowing for extra exploration and with plenty of overnight on board stays. Optional excursions focus on culture, history, adventure and of course cuisine.
Stylish intimate ships that cater for 684 to 1,250 guests create an almost home-from-home feel and with a high staff-to-guest ratio you feel as though your every need is taken care of by the attentive staff who genuinely care about making your holiday the best it can possibly be.
Your Stateroom or Suite is a spacious sanctuary, furnished in soft textures, stylish furnishing and soothing colours. The Veranda staterooms are among the largest at sea, with 282 square feet of space. Each stateroom features the exclusive Prestige Tranquility Bed for the ultimate sleeping experience, free soft drinks and bottled water in your mini bar, and the ability to watch live news and first-run movies on your flatscreen television. Those in Suite accommodation also enjoy a 24-hour butler service.
Exquisite Dining Experience
Boldly claiming to serve “the finest cuisine at sea” might seem to be an overstatement, but not when the legendary master chef Jacques Pépin serves as the Executive Culinary Director. With his genius for inspiration and his culinary wizardry for guidance, the immensely talented chefs masterfully create cuisines that earn rave reviews from guests; course after delectable course.
With open seated dining, all venues are at no additional charge and you have more choice on offer than most other cruise ships. Visit 'Toscana’ for authentic Italian food, or for a classic steakhouse experience head to the popular ‘Polo Grill’. Bold Asian cuisine in ‘Red Ginger’ is as visually striking as it is delectable. Guests looking for an elegant traditional dining experience should visit ‘The Grand Dining Room’ which serves course after course of fine European-inspired cuisine. The Canyon Ranch, meanwhile, serves tasty options for the health-conscious.
5★ Entertainment, Activities and Leisure
The variety of entertainment options will leave guests spoilt for choice. Enjoy a lecture, often from a famous historian, naturalist or former ambassador. Or for the budding golfer, practise your swing and putting skills on the 18 hole putting green. Prepare to be dazzled by the musical performances throughout the ship, from pianists, classical string quartets, mesmerising violinists and incredible vocalists. As evening approaches the stage comes alive with energetic shows, set to entertain. Perhaps spin the wheel at Monte Carlo casino and hope that lady luck is on your side? An evening with newfound friends sampling some of the cocktails in ‘Martinis’ or ‘Horizons’ makes for the perfect end to a perfect day.
As food is a major part of life aboard an Oceania cruise, Marina & Riviera also have one of the only hands-on cooking schools at sea. Here you learn how to prepare a variety of exquisite dishes at your own fully-equipped work station in a state-of-the art teaching kitchen, led by master chefs from around the world.
Or if you are looking to indulge yourself Canyon Ranch SpaClub has some speciality spa treatments sure to help relieve the stresses of land life. For the energetic, the state-of-the-art fitness centre will help burn some of those excess calories.
With Oceania Cruises, prepare yourself for a journey to inspire the mind, body and soul.
