Oceania Cruises has introduced the 2024-2025 Tropics and Exotics Collection of itineraries, which opened for sale on November 2, 2022. The new collection of 157 voyages spans seven continents and ranges from seven to 200 days in length. With more than 300 ports of call, the collection includes 14 new off-the-beaten-path ports. Offering 30 percent to 50 percent more time in port than premium lines, the itineraries include 451 overnight stays across 123 voyages.
Travelers seeking to explore more of the world can select from 70 Grand Voyages that afford opportunities for epic explorations across distinct regions and multiple continents. Destination immersion is another key element of the 2024-2025 Tropics and Exotics Collection with a wide variety of voyages focused on singular destinations such as the Amazon, the coastal villages of Brazil, the Arabian Peninsula, Japan, and an epic circumnavigation of Australia.
For those seeking to chart a course less traveled, there are in-depth explorations of Indonesia and Papua New Guinea, the yacht harbors and tiny atolls of the South Pacific, and even an early-spring traverse of the North Pacific that combines Japan’s northern prefectures with the rugged Alaska outposts of Dutch Harbor, Kodiak, and Whittier.
Among the other highlights, with Caribbean, Mexico and Panama Canal voyages, travelers can explore new corners of the tropics with visits to less-traveled islands such as Bonaire, Carriacou, Dominica and Guadeloupe. In South America, there are multiple adventures into the pristine landscapes of Patagonia, sailings along the Amazon River or voyages that explore the golden coasts of Brazil and Uruguay.
Across Asia, explorers can travel to far-flung places and iconic attractions with expansive options for Southeast Asia explorations. Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific journeys reveal a blend of dynamic marquee cities as well as unsung treasures in off-the-beaten-track places such as the coast of Western Australia; Bluff, Gisborne and Timaru in New Zealand; and islands in French Polynesia and Melanesia.
The collection offers an array of far-flung Grand Voyages, with options linking multiple distinct regions and region-specific journeys that feature in-depth explorations of South America, the South Pacific, Southeast Asia, and even extended Caribbean and Panama Canal journeys
