Sail the Ultra-Luxury Way With Oceania Cruises

If you’re after the ultimate holiday experience, why not consider an ultra-luxury cruise holiday? Surely there’s no better way of seeing the world than in complete luxury and style… That’s where Oceania Cruises come in.

Boasting an atmosphere akin to that of a private country club, on an Oceania Cruise you’ll feel relaxed and at home. The calmness of Oceania is reflected in the dress code: elegant, casual and comfortable during the day – and in the evening smart casual. Ideal for middle-aged and older couples seeking relaxation, Oceania is a firm favourite with many avid cruisers. And, carrying up to just 684 guests, you can expect a highly personalised service from start to finish.

Oceania’s fleet consists of 4 vessels; the Nautica, Insignia, Regatta and Marina. Each of the ships boast state-of-the-art on board facilities… indulge yourself in Oceania’s Spa, work off those calories in the hi-tech fitness centre, splash the cash (or free on-board spending credit) in the two boutiques, Feeling lucky? Then head to the glitzy casino, or socialize and meet fellow cruisers in one of the bars and lounges.

A new recruit…

The four vessels are set to become five in April with the launch of Marina’s sister ship, Riviera. The Riviera will be christened in Monte Carlo, Monaco on the French Riviera on the 19th April. She’s currently under construction at the Fincantieri Shipyard in Genoa. The Rivera’s maiden voyage will commence on April 24. A 12-day itinerary, Riviera will sail from Athens- and will call at all those delightful ports of call along the way like Alexandria and Port Said, Egypt, Haifa, Jerusalem, Rhodes, Greece, Ephesus and Istanbul. After she’s spent the summer and autumn sailing around the fascinating Mediterranean, the Riviera will then cross the Atlantic where she will spend the winter months sailing around the sun-soaked islands of the Caribbean.
