Oceania Cruises Travel Agency and Travel Agent Resourcesby Daniel McCarthy /
Oceania is a small-ship, luxury cruise line that sails a fleet of six cruise ships to worldwide destinations.
Four of the six ships are Regatta-class ships—Regatta, Nautica, Insignia, and Sirena. All of those vessels were built prior to 2001 for Renaissance Cruises, all at similar sizes (around 30,000 tons) with similar passenger capacity (824 passengers in 343 cabins).
The other two ships, Marina and Riviera, are in the Oceania class. Both operate at 66,000 tons with a capacity of 1,250 passengers across 625 cabins, most of which include private balconies.
Oceania has two more ships on order as part of its new Allura class of ships—Vista, which is set to be delivered in 2023, and another not-yet-named ship. Both of those are expected to come into the service at similar sizes to the Oceania class of ships.
Oceania is a worldwide cruise line, operating in all corners of the world, including in some far-off and less-known destinations in places like the Middle East, South Pacific, Northern Fjords, and more. Luxury guests looking for a unique, small-ship experience are likely to find it with Oceania.
The cruise line also offers a yearly World Cruise. Guests can opt to sail the whole itinerary or smaller segments.
