The Oceania Cruises experience is different. Elegant, yet casual; mid-size – not too huge and not too tiny; and Jacques Pepin oversees the culinary division; yet you enjoy the freedom of open seating. As elegant as these former Renaissance ships are the ambiance is refreshingly warm and casual, like a private country club.


You will feel right at home in your stateroom retreat. Over 70% of Oceania’s staterooms offer a private verandah. Inside your home away from home you will find plush furnishings plus custom-milled French and Italian toiletries. Enjoy a DVD to watch on your flat-panel LCD TV when you are not watching live news programs or first run movies. When it’s time for bed you can look forward to retiring into the trademark Tranquility Bed, outfitted with lavish linens atop a pillow-top mattress. Butlers provide their own special talents for guests in Oceania’s Owners, Vista and Penthouses Suites.


Oceania’s mid-sized ships offer a lot of advantages. A ship much larger would not be able to provide the personalized service delivered on Oceania. A ship too small could not provide the value you receive with an Oceania fare. With a maximum of only 684 guests you will have a staff of 400 at your service. That’s a generous ratio. But there's more. Only those who have distinguised themselves at the world's finest hotels and most exquisite restaurants qualify for consideration for acceptance into this internatinal staff.  


Let’s be honest – the quality of cuisine of a luxury cruise is highly important. Oceania Cruises has Master Chef Jacque Pepin as their Executive Culinary Director. His menus reflect the region where you cruise. You’ll dine at your choice of four diverse gourmet restaurants. Every restaurant allows you to dine whenever, wherever and with whomever you wish with Oceania’s open-seating policy. And you will never be required to wear a tuxedo or gown. Inspired by Europe's 5-star restaurants, the Grand Dining Room sets tables with Euopean bone china, sparkling Riedel crystal, gleaming silver, and fine cotton linens. The menu changes daily with a minimum of six appetizers and eight entrees for dinner.


If this talk of gourmet cuisine captured your interest, let's continue. There's steaks, chops and Seafood at the Polo Grill; Gourmet Italian dining at Toscana; casual breakfast, lunch and dinner served at The Terrace Cafe; poolside dining featuring gourmet burgers and hand-dipped milkshakes at Waves; Canyon Ranch Cuisine for the healthy diet; Gourmet Vegetarian, Kosher and special meals upon request; Gourmet canapes nightly in all suites; a complimentary extensive 24-hour room service menu; and for your drinking pleasures - an extensive wine cellar with more than 120 selections; plus a connoisseur collection of fine single-malt scotches, grappas and cognacs.


One more nice touch with Oceania Cruises is the Canyon Ranch Spa Club, where you will have access to a wealth of world famous treatments. You will even be able to work out in a state-of-the-art fitness center, or join in on aerobics, Pilates or yoga.



Cabaret style performers – 8-piece musical orchestra – Concert pianist – Classical string quartet – Flamenco guitarist – Jazz Nights at Martinis – Local and regional folk entertainment –Vocalists and virtuoso performers – Disco and karaoke / Extensive en-suite TV programming / Dance lessons / Wine & Cheese tastings / Culinary demonstrations / Over 2,000 books and periodicals / Casino / Large heated pool / Private cabanas.



Oceania Cruises covers the world in elegance but without pretense. Select the slice of the world you want to explore from 10 to 40 days. During the summer Oceania blankets Europe’s coasts. During the winter season Oceania cruises Australia, Asia, South America, the Caribbean, Panama Canal, and Mexico.


NEW for the summer of 2011 will be Alaska. Oceania Cruises will employ the Regatta to cruise 10, 12 and 14-day itineraries offering two full days of glacier cruising plus a mix of exploration-worthy, off-the-beaten-path ports such as Icy Strait Point, Wrangell, Prince Rupert, Homer, and even Kodiak, plus better known ports like Sitka, Ketchikan, Juneau, and even cruising right into Anchorage - which is extremely rare.



Oceania’s newest member will be the extraordinary Marina. Here are some of Oceania Marina’s hallmark features and amenities:

• Ten dining venues, including six open-seating gourmet restaurants
• Two new specialty restaurants - Jacques and Red Ginger
• Bon Appétit Culinary Center - the only hands-on cooking school at sea
• The revered dining classics you love - The Grand Dining Room, Polo Grill, Toscana and Terrace Café

• The opulent Owner's Suites are the only suites at sea designed and furnished with Ralph Lauren Home. At over 2,000 square feet, they feature wraparound verandas, dramatic window walls and feel like a fine designer home
• Magnificent Reception Hall and sweeping Lalique Grand Staircase
• Beloved signature spaces Oceania Cruises is famous for - Martinis, Grand Bar, The Patio, and Horizons
• The Grand Dining Room is truly grand, with soaring 14-foot high ceilings and a magnificent crystal chandelier that encompasses virtually the entire space
