Call (01) 2076555 Today and Book your Luxury Cruise
The moment you step aboard, you’ll know. These ships fit perfectly. The difference is quite striking, as a sense of calm and comfort immediately take hold. Perhaps, it’s the ideal proportions of the ships. It might be the staff ’s warm, genuine smiles, or the friendly atmosphere that instantly puts you at ease. Whatever the reasons, it’s obvious that these voyages are unlike any others.
The onboard atmosphere is exceedingly hospitable, similar to that of a country club. With no need for tuxedos or evening gowns, you can relax and be yourself while cruising to a collection of exotic destinations, especially the smaller gems inaccessible to larger ships. When it’s time to get away to the quiet comfort of your accommodations, you will find them bastions of serenity. Add the intangible that anything is possible, any time of the day, and you have an unrivaled experience.
The four intimate and luxurious 684-guest ships (Regatta, Nautica, Insignia and newly-refurbished Sirena) and the two newer 1258-guest ships (Marina & Riviera), allow you to explore the world in unequaled style and comfort. Such is the advantage of Oceania Cruises’ mid-sized ships. With the perfect ratio of staff to guests, the onboard life encourages you to flourish and experience the world from a vantage point that larger vessels simply can’t furnish.
The most spacious suites span nearly 1,000 square feet, every inch devoted to your pleasure. Located in premier corner locations on decks 6, 7 and 8, they present a wealth of amenities, ensuring that each moment is a pure delight. Ease into your own Jacuzzi. Watch first run Hollywood movies on the 42” plasma flat-screen TV with Bose® surround sound system or on a second flat-screen TV from the comfort of your bed. Play DVDs and CDs in the entertainment center, or access the Internet from the laptop computer provided while enjoying a favorite beverage from the refrigerated mini bar.
Wake up wonderfully rested on the queen-sized Tranquility Bed. Draw back the curtains from the numerous floor-to-ceiling glass doors and enjoy spectacular views from the wraparound teak veranda furnished with resort-quality outdoor lounge furniture. There’s even a second bathroom for guests.
The difference is especially evident with regard to dining. Inspired by the genius of the legendary Jacques Pépin, who serves as the Executive Culinary Director. Host of numerous public television series, he is one of America’s best known chefs, food columnists and cook book authors. He has also served as the personal chef to no less than three French heads of state, including Charles de Gaulle.
The chefs consistently present cuisine that, with all modesty, is unequivocally the finest at sea. To enhance the experience, seating is open in our four distinctive restaurants, freeing you to dine when, where, and with whom you desire.
On each cruise, the menus feature literally thousands of different dishes that showcase our chefs’ extraordinary talents. There is simply no end to their virtuosity, or the variety of cuisines. Whichever restaurant or café you choose the chefs know no bounds in their pursuit of perfection and their quest to please even the most discriminating of palates. Speciality restaurants offer American, French, Italian or Asian cuisine as a tempting dining alternative and are offered without extra charge.
Oh, what to do first? With so much entertainment onboard, the challenge is often deciding which type is just right, at that very moment. Some days, you may want to do nothing more enterprising than lounge around, happily reading a book in the poolside Patio or relaxing in one of the eight private cabanas on the Sun Deck. Other days, you may long for more vigorous activities. Perhaps a brisk walk around the oval track, a refreshing dip in the pool, or an energizing workout in the fitness center. How about a rousing round of Team Trivia or an indulgent martini tasting? Again, it is your choice at your pace, according to your own timetable.
Enriching your mind can be tremendously entertaining, as well. You might read about your next port of call in Oceania Currents, the daily onboard publication, or in one of dozens of travel books from the well-stocked English-style library. The concierge, shore excursion staff, and even your fellow guests can also provide a great wealth of information. But nothing rivals the knowledge of the prestigious and often famous guest lecturers, who will regale you with personal insights, historical outlooks, or expertise regarding the treasures ashore. Imagine the thrill of discussing Vietnam’s tumultuous history with a former diplomat and political expert while sailing through Asia. Just think how much more you will appreciate the natural majesty of Patagonia after listening to a naturalist who has spent decades living and studying in the region. Yes, these are the sorts of encounters that comprise the Oceania Cruises experience.
And when you yearn for an inspiring musical interlude, head to the Upper Hall before dinner for the pianist’s interpretation of Bach. Later in the evening, enjoy the virtuosity of the classic string quartet while out on deck under the stars, or dance to the inspired sounds of our acclaimed 12-piece orchestra. For soft jazz and dynamic vocals, Horizons is the perfect venue. In our Lounge, you’ll discover a diversity of headliners consisting of illusionists, comedians and soulful singers that present you with the perfect way to top off another perfect day.
Whatever your intention, the Canyon Ranch Spa Club has the perfect treatment to gratify the mind, body and soul. In this bastion of relaxation, moods lighten, skin becomes more youthful, and spirits soar. Rehydrate with a moisturizing Aromapure Facial. Surrender to the joy of an Ionithermie Cellulite Reduction Program to tone your body. Then, slip into the vitamin-enriched waters of the private, open-air Thalassotherapy Whirlpool. More enhancing treatments await you in the adjoining beauty salon, including moisturizing hand rituals, traditional pedicures, and hair care for men and women.
For a more athletic transformation, enjoy the state-of-the-art fitness center. Focus on specific muscle groups with free weights, treadmills, elliptical machines, and multiple exercise stations. Try power plate training, a revolutionary technique developed for elite athletes. Join an individual or group class in aerobics, Pilates and yoga. Follow a program designed just for you by one of the personal trainers. Exercising here is so enjoyable that you’ll be surprised how quickly time passes, especially while watching a flat-screen plasma television, or gazing through the window at the ever-changing sights of the world.
