Oceania Cruises will resume cruise operations with three ships, Riviera, Insignia, and Sirena, between October 2021 and January 2022.
Riviera will resume its previously published voyage schedules beginning from Istanbul on Oct. 18, 2021, and sail a series of Mediterranean voyages prior to beginning a winter 2021-2022 series of Caribbean voyages from Miami.
Insignia will resume sailings with a Dec. 21, 2021, Panama Canal voyage from Miami prior to embarking on a sold-out 180-day Around the World cruise from Los Angeles to New York.
Sirena will commence sailings starting with the Jan. 22, 2022, Caribbean voyage from Miami to Panama City, Panama.
“This is an exciting day for our guests and team members alike as we begin to prepare another three ships to resume sailing in Europe, the Caribbean, and the eagerly anticipated kickoff of our epic Around the World in 180 Days voyage for 2022,” stated Bob Binder, President & CEO of Oceania Cruises.
Voyage itineraries for each ship will continue to be evaluated for port availability and may be adjusted as required closer to the sailing dates. These additional ship restarts follow the April 28th announcement of the line’s Marina resuming cruise operations from Copenhagen beginning on August 29, 2021.
Phased restart dates for Regatta and Nautica will be announced at a later date.
All Oceania Cruises voyages will sail with a vaccination requirement for 100% of guests and crew “until further notice.”
Oceania Cruises recently announced the first in a series of new product enhancements rolling out across its fleet as part of its OceaniaNEXT program when the line resumes operations beginning in August.
These elevated dining experiences and service levels range from an elaborate dinner at Toscana to the line’s exclusive Dom Pérignon Experience. Binder added that the brand initiative includes “thoughtfully reimagined menus to enhanced service levels to the dramatic re-inspiration of our six ships.”
This is just the first of many inspirational new OceaniaNEXT enhancements to be revealed over the coming months.
