Europe 2024 will be the brand’s most expansive and diverse European season to date. With six ships positioned around the continent, the destinations are as diverse as Greenland and Iceland in the north and west, to the Holy Lands of Egypt and Israel in the south and east, and everywhere in between. Every voyage is a celebration of history, culture, and cuisine in a myriad of mesmerising destinations. From the glittering jewels of the Greek Isles, Italian Riviera and France’s famed Côte d’Azur to the delightful hidden gems of Norway’s fjord-lined coast and the rugged outposts of Greenland and Iceland, these 2024 European itineraries are a study in diversity. Insignia, Nautica, Marina, and Sirena will spend the majority of the season exploring Europe’s northern reaches and the western wine countries. Riviera and Vista will call the Mediterranean home with a seemingly endless bounty of voyages to Spain, France, Italy, Croatia, Greece, Turkey, Malta, Israel, Egypt and more.
Regatta, Insignia, and Nautica will also offer close to three dozen enticing explorations of Alaska, New England, Canada, Bermuda, and the United States’ colonial south. Regatta will reprise her perennially popular Alaska season with a series of voyages that showcases the region in all its glory. Must-see destinations include Icy Strait Point, Kodiak, Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, Sitka, Wrangell, Prince Rupert and Victoria. On the East Coast, Insignia and Nautica will offer sailings to Bermuda, New England, and Canada’s maritime provinces from New York City, Boston, and Montreal.
From the lush and verdant tropical clime of the Amazon to the rugged, glacially carved coastline of Chile, South America is a vast continent brimming with thrilling explorations and vibrant heritage and Marina will sail the entire continent and even take a breathtaking diversion down to Paradise Bay, Admiralty Bay, and Half Moon Island in Antarctica.
With more than three dozen sailings in the regions, Oceania Cruises showcases the intriguing lands of Asia and Africa in a fashion that has no peer. Riviera will chart her inaugural season in the region sailing from Arabia to India, to southeast Asia, the Philippines, Vietnam, China, South Korea, and Japan, while Nautica will explore the Far East while also offering up a delightful array of voyages that showcase South Africa, Mozambique, Mayotte, and the Seychelles, and Regatta will offer a series of voyages that is a kaleidoscope of these fabled countries.
