Oceania Cruises’ Holiday-Focused Voyages
The Miami-based luxury cruise line Oceania Cruises, recognized for its exceptional culinary offerings and destinations, has announced an exclusive opportunity for travelers searching for unforgettable holiday voyages over the next few years.
With their fleet of seven small luxurious ships, potential cruise customers can enjoy a truly remarkable cruising experience during the 2023-2024 and 2024-2025 holiday seasons — with the company putting a strong emphasis on the “festive” part of these oceangoing holidays.
Oceania Cruises will offer more than 40 sailings departing from a variety of ports and cities, including Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Lima, Miami, Singapore, and Sydney. Many of these voyages will be sailing to sunny and tropical locations, which is great news for anyone looking to escape colder climates over the holidays.
“Cruising aboard a luxurious ship replete with celebratory menus, glistening decorations, and festive entertainment is an extraordinary way to spend the holiday season,” said Frank A. Del Rio, President of Oceania Cruises.
Guests on these festive voyages will have the chance to experience a variety of destinations, from pristine Caribbean beaches and exotic island getaways across Polynesia and Australia to trips to Latin America and thrilling Arabian adventures.
The new 67,000-ton, Allura-class Vista, with a capacity of 1,200 passengers, will kick off these whirlwind holiday offerings with a 12-day “Caribbean Wanderlust” adventure, scheduled to sail out of Miami on December 18, 2023 and visit amazing ports of call like St. Lucia, Dominica, and more.
Inclusive Onboard Celebrations and Dining Festivities
When guests book one of Oceania Cruises’ holiday season cruises, they will be greeted by seasonal decorations, festive garlands, sparkling lights, and more, creating a festive ambiance.
For travelers interested in Jewish-based revelries, there will be a stunning presentation of the Menorah lighting as well. For Christmas, a visit from Santa Claus, carol singing, and evening spectacles on Christmas Eve and Day will all help elevate the celebratory mood.
A traditional eggnog breakfast menu will be prepared on Christmas Day. Guests can also enjoy a Christmas Day dinner or Hanukkah evening meal.
