Oceania adds 15 new ports, Grand Voyages for 2012-13…

Posted on 28 September 2011


Oceania Cruises’ 1,250-passenger Marina, which debuted in January 2011.

Luxury cruise line Oceania has revealed its 2012-13 schedule, featuring 22 new itineraries and 15 new ports, plus the opportunity to combine cruises for “Grand Voyages” ranging from 23 to 71 days. For example, one 49-day trip aboard the Marina (departing April 7, 2013) travels from Tahiti all the way to New York.


The line will offer Caribbean and Panama Canal cruises onboard the line’s new 1,250-passenger Riviera. With advance booking, seven-day cruises start at $1,499 per guest, including round-trip air.


Passengers booking Grand Voyages can save five percent, plus get free prepaid gratuities and a $250 shipboard credit – a savings of up to $1,300 per guest, depending on the length of the voyage and suite or stateroom category reserved.


Select ship itineraries include:


Regatta: The 684-passenger ship will again offer foliage cruises in September and October before heading to the Caribbean and South America. New ports include Boston and Portland, Maine.


Other journeys include a 25-day Amazon cruise from New York (departing Nov. 2, 2012); and a 30-day South America itinerary traveling from Lima, Peru, to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (departing Jan. 23, 2013).


Marina: The ship will replace the smaller Regatta on cruises to Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific. The 20-day Ancient Legends journey to Polynesia via South America (departing Dec. 27, 2012) will visit such rare calls as Robinson Crusoe, Easter and Pitcairn islands and Fakarava in French Polynesia.


Riviera: The sister ship to Marina will make its North American debut with Caribbean and Panama Canal cruises beginning Nov. 29, 2012. The new itineraries venture deeper into the Caribbean; a 14-day “Island Holiday” (departing Dec. 20, 2012), for example, will include stops at Kingstown, the capital of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines; and Philipsburg, St. Maarten, both new ports for the line.


Nautica: The 684-passenger ship will return to Africa and Asia. One memorable trip, Sands & Safaris (departing Jan. 5, 2013), is a 30-day cruise from Cape Town, South Africa, to Singapore via the Seychelles, Sri Lanka and Maldives.
