What Makes Oceania Cruises a Luxury Cruise Line?
Oceania Cruises is a luxury cruise line that provides its guests with an unforgettable experience through smaller-sized ships that help to keep it intimate, overnight stays ashore that allow more exploration time and impeccable service from the dedicated members of the crew.
Here are just a few reasons why Oceania Cruises is one of the most refined options available.
Oceania Cruises has an amazing culinary team that has taken preparation tips and unique flavours from all over the world to help aid the exquisite menus. Jacques Pepin, the French-born American chef, is the Executive Culinary Director and has his very own restaurant, allowing you to try a collection that includes rotisserie meats and vegetables.
When cruising with Oceania Cruises, dining is all-inclusive. So, no matter which meal you choose to feast on, whether its spicy duck in Red Ginger or octopus in Toscana, you won’t be surprised with any charges. You can come and go whenever you wish and sit with whoever you want thanks to their open-seating policy. A country club dress code is required for all restaurants, creating a sophisticated yet casual atmosphere.
All of Oceania Cruises’ Regatta Class ships were refurbished in 2018 and 2019, receiving 342 new staterooms and suites with designer décor. All stateroom interiors now include a light colour palette of turquoises and beiges to modernise and brighten them, especially when the natural light is let in through the large windows. A beautiful blend of contemporary flair and luxurious soft furnishings provides you with both elegance and comfort during your cruise.
All suites and the majority of cabins on board Marina and Riviera have a private balcony with comfortable outdoor furniture, allowing you to sit, relax and look out for any upcoming ports. To experience luxury, stay in the Owner’s Suite on either of these ships because they have been refreshed with soft furnishings exclusively provided by Ralph Lauren Home.
Modern Facilities & Décor
The modern Culinary Centre can be found on both Marina and Riviera and is designed for guests who wish to participate in an onboard cooking school. Here you’ll be exposed to state-of-the-art cooking equipment and new flavours and techniques taught by expert chefs.
The stylish Artist Loft is available for budding artists who wish to learn skills through step-by-step instructions. You’ll only be able to enjoy these one-of-a-kind experiences aboard a luxury cruise, so don’t miss out.
The overall interior design of Oceania Cruises’ ships varies from vessel to vessel. Nautica and Regatta both showcase beautiful teak furniture that complements the stone tiles. Guest favourites include the breathtaking chandelier in the Main Dining Room, stunning grand staircase in the atrium and Monte Carlo-inspired casino.
Off-The-Beaten Track Destinations
The cruise line doesn’t just focus on having immaculate onboard facilities, they also immerse their passengers in the earth’s most fascinating destinations. The location you’ve always wanted to visit is bound to be included in Oceania Cruises’ portfolio of 450 ports. The small, intimate size of their ships means they sail into small ports in remote areas, allowing you to explore hidden treasures.
Overnight stays are included on certain cruises, so you can discover more of these fantastic areas. Khasab in Oman is just one of the unique destinations you can visit, accompanied by a group of destination specialists who’ll provide you with an abundance of information whilst dolphin watching or on a dhow cruise.
