With smaller ships than other cruise lines, Oceania Cruises are able to dock at boutique ports in unusual destinations. In fact, most days on a cruise are spent in port, with sailing done at night, giving you more time to make the most of your stay. Oceania Cruises’ diverse range of onshore excursions are one of the reasons for their excellent reputation.

Oceania Cruises offer unique cruises focused on food, wine, music or health, featuring guest lecturers, musicians and culinary masterminds. As well as these special voyages, regular cruises include hands-on activities such as art, bridge and cookery classes, as well as elegant casinos.

Life onboard is defined by their dedication to creating an atmosphere of luxury and intimacy. With an amazing staff to passenger ratio of 1 to 1.6, Oceania Cruises offer an attentive, personalised service. The dress code onboard is known as Country Club Casual – with emphasis on comfort rather than formality.

A cruise you’ll remember forever has to involve dining experiences that combine excellent choice with uncompromised quality. Legendary chef Jacque Pépin is Oceania Cruises’ Executive Culinary Director and with his influence, Oceania Cruises are able to offer world cuisines executed with expertise and flair. There are no surcharges in their restaurants, unlike other cruise lines, and cuisine ranges from Pépin’s signature French bistro, to fine Italian food and mouth-watering Asian flavours.

With a roster of exceptional musicians, magicians and comedians, you can choose to be entertained in sumptuous surroundings every night. Alternatively you could chat with new-found friends over a cocktail in one of Oceania Cruises’ lounges, try the dance floor in Horizons or even have a go at karaoke – luxury and comfort don’t have to come at the expense of fun.
