Oceania Cruises announces its 2015 Summer Collection offering voyages to the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, Alaska, Canada, Asia and Africa. Reservations for the new voyages open for sale on March 5, 2014 at 8:30 a.m. Eastern.
The fleet of Regatta, Insignia, Nautica, Marina and Riviera will offer a diverse collection of itineraries, with 24 exciting new ports of call on four continents during the 2015 summer season. Among the new ports are Luanda, Angola; Paamiut, Greenland; Trois-Rivières, Québec; Archangel, Russia; Skiathos, Greece; Londonderry, Northern Ireland; Wismar, Germany; and Palamós, Spain. Also new this season is a series of Grand Voyages in Europe. Ranging in length from 20 to 70 days, these longer itineraries offer guests multiple opportunities for extended exploration during the summer.
Nautica, Marina and Riviera will set sail on 43 European itineraries, 40 of which are new. Nautica will spend the majority of the season exploring the majesty of the British Isles, the Baltic and Scandinavia, sailing as far north as Greenland, while Marina will also explore the region before making her way around the Iberian Peninsula to embark on several cruises in the Western Mediterranean. Offering all new itineraries, Riviera will call the Mediterranean, the Greek Isles, Turkey and the Black Sea home for the season. Regatta will spend the summer in Alaska offering seven- and 10-day itineraries as well as five all new sailings, including the 12-day Glacial Explorer. In the fall, she will sail for New York City on a new Panama Canal cruise and then offer four cruises throughout New England and Canada.
Due to the response to the line’s first-ever world expedition unveiled last summer, Insignia will depart on a second 180-day voyage on July 8, 2015. Unlike conventional world cruises that commence in winter, this voyage will spend the summer sailing from Miami through New England and Canada to Greenland, Iceland and Norway. Insignia will then call on France, Portugal and Spain en route to Italy and other destinations in the Mediterranean. As the winter season begins, the voyage will explore Asia and Africa before returning to Miami. Individual segments within the 180-Day World Odysseywill open for bookings with the launch of the 2015 summer season, as will Grand Voyages offering various combinations of these itineraries.
