Oceania Cruises is launching a new collection of immersive, destination-focused itineraries that it will sail on Sirena, which is fresh 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.

From Istanbul, it will then sail a 20-day itinerary to Dubai with stops in Jerusalem, Cairo, Muscat, and more before arriving in Dubai for an overnight, which is followed by a 10-day, roundtrip from Dubai itinerary and then a 15-day, Dubai to Mumbai holiday sailing.

From Mumbai, Sirena will sail another 15-day itinerary to Rangoon before heading on another 15-day itinerary to Bangkok and then heading back to Dubai on a 24-day sailing. Then, Sirena will travel the last leg of the journey, to Athens on a 22-day sailing that includes stops in Jerusalem, a transit of the Suez Canal, and more.

Oceania has also announced that Sirena, which sails 684 guests, will now extend its 2020 European Season instead of the scheduled Cuban sailings. The ship offers 342 new staterooms after its OceaniaNEXT renovation, with new door entries, full length mirrors, new wall sconces in the spa, and more.
