New World Cruise on Tap for Oceania in 2020

Oceania Insignia

Oceania Cruises has announced a new Around the World in 180 Days cruise on the Oceania Insignia, departing on January 8, 2020. Crossing the equator four times, the new itinerary visits 95 different ports of call on four continents across 27 time zones and, for the first time on an Oceania Cruises Around the World voyage, circumnavigates South America.

The 2020 Around the World voyage also represents the brand’s most expansive focus ever on Japan, Oceania said, with nine ports of call. The itinerary also explores Africa, rounds both the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Horn, and, in another first for an Oceania Cruises global journey, showcases the breadth of Alaska from the Aleutian Islands to the Inside Passage. In addition, exclusive shoreside events will be held in Montevideo, Uruguay; Cape Town, South Africa; Rangoon, Myanmar; Hong Kong, China; and Kyoto, Japan.
