Oceania's midsized ships give a more intimate experience with a friendly, social atmosphere and plenty of 5-star facilities.
Bring out your inner explorer with Oceania’s extensive list of global itineraries, including a round-the-world journey lasting 180 days. Whether you’re visiting the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean or the vibrant landscapes of South America, there’s plenty of options on offer. A unique feature of Oceania Cruises is that many ports feature overnight stays, giving you more time to get to know the destination rather than simply passing right through. Popular routes include the Far East, with stops in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Bangkok, and the enriching ports of Cape Town and the Seychelles on an African cruise.

Our cruise on Nautica was truly a wonderful and memorable experience. We just hope that we may be able to sail with Oceania Cruise Lines again in the future.

Tipping is ultimately left to your discretion, but an automatic gratuity of $16-23 USD per guest, per day is added to your shipboard account. The exact amount depends on whether you’re staying in a stateroom or suite. An 18% gratuity is also added to spa services, beverage purchases and dinner at La Reserve.
Despite the grandeur of many Oceania cruise spaces, the line emphasises a warm and friendly atmosphere and this trickles down to the ‘country club casual’ dress code. Tuxedos and gowns aren’t required here; instead you can dress to suit your own comfort with resort wear like sundresses, smart trousers and cotton tops. Gentlemen can include a dinner jacket for evening events, and ladies can opt for a cocktail dress if they please.
"If I could only say one word it would be fantastic! From the beautifully appointed cabins, down to the great public spaces on board, this ship is class!"
"Oceania's onboard ambience and facilities are clearly for those who want a much better cruise experience than the well marketed, but often not so special, mass market cruise lines."
"Oceania is ideal for foodies. If you’re the sort of person who likes á la carte menus this is the cruise line for you! It’s very elegant & there are all the touches you would expect of a 5* star ship!"
"Oceania have the finest cuisine at sea, with a variety of distinctive open-seating restaurants with no supplement to pay as well as gourmet cuisine curated by world-renowned Master Chef Jacques Pépin."
There’s nothing like sea air to work up an appetite, and the Grand Dining Room is ready to deliver an elegant dining experience every day of your cruise. Decorated in rich woods and tapestries, this dining room offers a sense of classic elegance. Tables are set with polished silver, crisp cotton linens and sparkling crystal glasses to help set the scene. Menus change daily, but you’ll have plenty of choice including a minimum of ten appetizers and twelve entrees at dinner. Famed chef Jacque Pepin is the Executive Culinary Director of Oceania Cruises, so you know you’re always in for a treat. Visit the Bistro to taste typically French family recipes alongside regionally-inspired specialties.
Apart from the French Bistro and Grand Dining Room, you can work your way around the onboard restaurants without any dining surcharges. Sample Italian dishes at Toscana, grilled steak at Polo Grill, or the bold flavours of Asia at Red Ginger. The Terrace Café is open to provide a more casual American dining experience, and of course you can pair all your meals with carefully curated bottles of wine. Seating is open, so you can make new friends or dine alone when preferred.
Oceania Cruises caters to all dietary requirements, and they’re currently leading the way in plant-based cuisine at sea. The Grand Dining Room now offers a full collection of vegan dishes. Forget what you know about vegan cuisine – you won’t find any stodgy nut loaves here! Instead, you can expect flavourful Thai curries, pastries and even savoury Spanish tortillas. You can also treat your body right with freshly pressed juices and Acai berry bowls at Waves Grill.
Put the finishing touch to any meal with perfect drink to accompany it. Oceania’s beverage packages include a Wine by the Bottle Package, allowing you to customise your wine tasting experience to best suit your tastes. Wines are chosen by the line’s sommeliers, combining quality with value. The Prestige Select package includes unlimited premium wine, beer, spirits and Champagne, while the House Select offers unlimited wine, beer and Champagne with lunch and dinner only.
Whether you’re interested in history, music or art, you’re sure to find entertainment options to strike your fancy. Guest lecturers include experts in the fields of politics, science and history ready to share their insider info with you. Musical performances brighten up the evenings, with guest entertainers including stirring singers and classical pianists. Sip on an expertly crafted cocktail and enjoy a live jazz performance at Martinis Bar, or dance the night away at Horizons. And if you love the thrill of a casino, visit the onboard Monte Carlo-styled venue for an energetic round of roulette or blackjack.
Entertainment varies according to the ship and itinerary. Shows might include Tuxedo, a modern take on American classics from the likes of Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra, or Good Lovin’ featuring the sounds of Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles. Gatsby’s is a glittering 1920’s-styled musical featuring flashy costumes and showgirls, all accompanied with Prohibition-era cocktails.
Hands-on classes and recreational facilities keep your days at sea fully engaging. Visit the onboard Culinary Centre to pick up tips from some of the world’s top chefs. This hands-on cooking school ensures you’ll return home with a few new recipes to wow dinner guests! Fine art lovers can visit the Artist Loft, where the artists-in-residence will give you step by step instruction in the art of watercolour, sketching and collage making.
All staterooms and suites are lavishly appointed with all the trappings of a luxury hotel room. Your mini fridge will be stocked daily with free soft drinks and bottled water, and you’ll find ultra-posh Bulgari amenities as well. Free room service is on hand 24 hours a day, and free Wi-Fi keeps you connected to friends and family back home. Most importantly, you’re ensured a good night of sleep with the specialty Prestige Tranquillity Bed, 1000-thread count linens, and individual climate control.
We all have different fitness styles, and Oceania cruises aims to suit all of them with your choice of high-octane aerobics and spinning classes as well as relaxing yoga and Pilates. Visit the fitness centre for personal training, a Kinesis exercise wall and state-of-the-art gym equipment. When you’re ready to unwind, the Canyon Ranch Spa offers exclusive beauty and wellness treatments including massages and a relaxation room. A thalassotherapy pool, whirlpool tubs, sauna, steam room and salon round out the options here.
