Oceania Cruises, renowned for its culinary excellence and destination-focused voyages, is rolling out the red carpet for travellers seeking an unforgettable holiday experience. With over 40 sailings departing from various ports around the world during the 2023-2024 and 2024-2025 holiday seasons, Oceania Cruises invites you to join the celebration on board seven of its small, luxurious ships.
The festivities start the minute you board. Imagine a reading of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas on Christmas Eve, visits from Santa Claus and his helpers, charming carol singing, and dazzling evening shows. There’s even a beautiful display for the lighting of the Menorah. There will be special services hosted on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and as the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve, a ship-wide countdown party will begin in full swing to usher in the new year.
Food lovers, take note: Oceania Cruises lives up to its promise of “The Finest Cuisine at Sea”, from traditional eggnog with breakfast on Christmas Day to an exquisite Hanukkah dining menu in The Grand Dining Room. Delight in high teas and savour a multi-course traditional Christmas Day dinner prepared by the finest chefs at sea. The dessert spread alone, featuring tarts, tortes, cheesecakes, macarons, and profiteroles, will be a feast for the eyes.
Frank A. Del Rio, president of Oceania Cruises, sums it up best: “Cruising aboard a luxurious ship replete with celebratory menus, glistening decorations, and festive entertainment is an extraordinary way to spend the holiday season. Our collection of festive itineraries explores enticing locales the world over, creating memories to last a lifetime.”
The highlight of the 2023-2024 season is an exotic 12-day Caribbean Wanderlust adventure aboard Oceania Cruises’ newest 1,200-guest ship, Vista. It reveals a new class in luxury with 11 dining options, including three new signature culinary venues — The Bakery at Baristas, Ember, and Aquamar Kitchen.
This is in addition to eight bars, lounges, and entertainment venues, including Aquamar Spa + Vitality
Center. Vista boasts the most spacious standard staterooms at sea at more than 290 sq ft, and its Penthouse Suites and staterooms feature large bathrooms with oversized rainforest showers.
Departing on December 18, 2023, the journey on Vista kicks off in a round-trip from Miami and takes you to St. Barts, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, and more. Prices start at USD$3,999 (S$5,455) for a French Veranda room.
Closer to Singapore, the Awe of Australia cruise takes you on a 14-day voyage from Sydney to Bali aboard Regatta, where you’ll revel in the delights of Australia’s eastern coast, visiting renowned vineyards, cutting-edge galleries, the iconic Gold Coast, the Great Barrier Reef and beyond.
Why settle for ordinary holidays when you can make them extraordinary?
