Oceania Cruises Announces New 33-Day Grand Voyage for Fall 2023

Oceania Cruises has announced a new grand voyage itinerary for 2023. The 33-day “Mediterranean Connection” itinerary aboard Marina from Venice to Barcelona will immerse guests in the highlights of the Eastern Mediterranean and Holy Lands. Departing October 11, 2023, this grand voyage will call on 28 different ports, and will offer three shorter segment options spanning up to 12 days.

“With demand continuing to increase for longer and more destination-immersive voyages, we are thrilled to reveal this new itinerary offering experiences in both iconic and off-the-beaten-path ports of call in a corner of the world with rich history and cultural wonders,” said Howard Sherman, president and CEO of Oceania Cruises.

Travelers can enjoy a range of experiences on board, such as a state-of-the art cooking school teaching the flavors of the region, to private dining at Privée. During this expedition, Marina will call on Italy, Croatia, Greece, Turkey, Malta, Israel, Egypt and more.

Guests will set sail for just over a month aboard the 1,238-passenger Marina to explore Eastern Mediterranean. From Venice, this voyage takes guests through marquee ports and hidden destinations across the Mediterranean; guests can expect culinary experiences in Italian locales, a blend of history and culture throughout the Greek isles and a comprehensive journey through the Holy Lands.

Highlights of the “Mediterranean Connection” itinerary:

  • With no repeat ports of call, explore 28 diverse ports ranging from iconic cities to off-the-beaten-path destinations
  • Embarking in fall 2023, experience all that the Eastern Mediterranean has to offer with a more temperate climate and fewer crowds
  • Explorations of 10 countries, easily connecting diverse corners of the region
  • An overnight in Istanbul offering ample time for in-depth exploration of the city astride two continents

Good to know: For guests interested in shorter segments of the Mediterranean Connection Grand Voyage, Oceania Cruises is offering a selection of abbreviated sailings, ranging from 10 to 23 days.
