Oceania Cruises this week launched its brand new travel advisor center on its website, as part of the line’s continuing OceaniaNEXT enhancements.

The portal allows advisors to plan and book cruises with the same online booking engine that advisors rate highly (an upgraded booking engine is set to come in 2020), along with new marketing tools that will give advisors access to Oceania’s latest marketing materials, including lifestyle and ship images. The new portal also gives advisors the ability to create a co-branded website.

“Our travel advisors are valued experts and we do everything possible to provide them with the most advanced and easiest-to-use resources in the industry,” Nikki Upshaw, senior vice president of sales, Oceania Cruises, said in a statement announcing the news.

“Dedicated entirely to our travel partners, the new Travel Advisor Center allows them to maximize their ability to promote Oceania Cruises, find valuable marketing resources, and recommend the Oceania experience in the most efficient and proficient manner possible,” Upshaw said.

The portal will also host information about all of Oceania’s special programs, including OLife Choice and Oceania’s Sales Specialist Academy, along with Oceania’s reduced rate travel for its advisors.

Oceania also recently announced new excursions for guests sailing on Sirena, another one of Oceania's ships that is coming off of its OceaniaNEXT renovation. The nine itineraries will kick off starting in November 2020 with a 12-day sailing from Jerusalem to Istanbul that includes two overnights in Jerusalem, and stops in Bodrum, Turkey; Crete, Greece; and more.
