Filled with a spectacular array of diverse and exotic destinations, your world awaits your discovery. There is simply no better way to explore it than aboard the elegant ships of Oceania Cruises. Our unique itineraries are wide-ranging, featuring the most fascinating destinations throughout the world. Regatta, Insignia, Nautica, Sirena, Marina and Riviera are all intimate and luxurious, with each calling on the world’s most desirable ports, from historic cities and modern meccas to seaside villages and faraway islands. On a voyage with Oceania Cruises, each day offers the rewarding opportunity to experience the history, culture and cuisine of a wondrous new destination.
The most sophisticated and elegant ships to debut in the past 50 years. The brand new Marina, and her sister Riviera, which debuted in May 2012, are the most beautiful, elegant and sophisticated ships to debut in the past 50 years. Designer touches are everywhere, from the magnificent Lalique Grand Staircase and stunning Owner’s Suites furnished in Ralph Lauren Home, they are showcases of the finest residential design and furnishings. More than anything, Marina and Riviera personify the Oceania Cruises experience.
Last year I was hosted on a walk around on the Oceania Regatta on two different occasions and took two of my clients. Prior to this I did a walk around on her sister ship the Oceania Nautica. This is 5 star cruising at its best. While larger than her consorts Regatta, Insignia, SIrena, and Nautica, Marina and Riviera remains comfortably mid-size, adroitly utilizing the additional space for even greater amenities. She rewards guests with her signature “finest cuisine at sea” in six restaurants, including two new gourmet venues — Jacques and Red Ginger. Her new Yacht Club holds enlightening wine and food pairings. For special coffees and snacks, there is Biscottos Coffee Bar. The new Bon Appétit Culinary Center offers hands-on cooking instruction under the guidance of master chefs. Similarly, artists-in-residence teach fine arts in The Studio, a new enrichment center. Intimate lounges abound. Accommodations in every category are incredibly spacious, especially with regard to the lavish bathrooms. Yet remarkably, with so many additions, the onboard ambiance and experience remains comfortably familiar. We have retained everything guests adore about our ships and raised the bar ever higher.
There are a number of itineraries and excellent specials available with many other cruises to choose from across all cruise lines. Traditionally with cruising to get the best deals, early bird specials, onboard credits and best choice of cabins the secret is to book well in advance.
If you are travelling to NZ from abroad and intend to holiday on a cruise ship, I can book this for you and assist with your local sightseeing. I invite you to explore New Zealand on land too.
