Elegant 684-passenger ships sail the world in resort casual luxury
Oceania Cruises. A new cruise line as of 2003, Oceania offers luxury cruising elegance on mid-size 684-passenger ships offering the best of both worlds: large-ship facilities in the refined atmosphere of small-ship intimacy. The resort casual surroundings provide the ideal background for visits to the fascinating ports of Europe and the Mediterranean.
Highlights. Oceania's itineraries are frequently arranged to spend the night in featured ports of call, so you can spend extra time exploring intriguing cities like St. Petersburg, Copenhagen or Stockholm. Expect attentive on-board service, with a ratio of more than one crew member for every stateroom. The on-board environment is akin to a country club, with elegant but casual clothing always appropriate and tuxedos and gowns never required. All of the staterooms are spacious, with over 70% featuring private verandahs so you can enjoy the romance of being at sea. Details like Egyptian cotton linens, down pillows, and French milled toiletries add that extra touch. Gourmands will delight in the cuisine designed exclusively for Oceania by master chef Jacques Pépin.
