Going on an Oceania cruise is one of the best ways to get a great vacation for a great
value. Oceania's cruise fares are per person and are based on double occupancy. Fares do
not include shore excursions, baggage handling, gratuities, alcoholic beverages that are
not part of the regular menu, laundry service or spa treatments. We are sometimes able
to offer ship-board credit that can be applied to these expenses. Contact our travel
agents to get the best pricing for upcoming Oceania cruises, and check out our affiliate
partner for great deals on shore excursions here.
There is so much to do on Oceania; you'll be far from bored. There are lots of scheduled
activities on board, like wine tastings of rare vintage wines, culinary center cooking
classes and stimulating lectures. Each ship has a variety of bars, lounges and
entertainment. Test your luck at the casino, or attend a live classical concert under
the stars. From live music performances and karaoke to the Canyon Ranch Spa, there is
something fun for everyone (and that is just what is on the ship)! You will also get the
added adventure of exploring many exciting ports of call.
Oceania encourages you to pack motion sickness medication if you think you may need it.
Visit your doctor before you cruise and they will be able to inform you of effective
preventative medications to combat unwanted symptoms. The ships have stabilizers and
advanced weather information to ensure the smoothest travel possible, and you can ask
our travel agents to book you in a room that is at the lowest and most centralized
section of the vessel to reduce your chances of feeling discomfort. Larger ships tend to
have a smoother ride, so Oceania's Riviera or Marina would be good choices.
Cruise ships are very safe. Congress passed the Cruise Vessel Security and Safety Act in
2010, and if you have questions safety information is readily available to passengers.
Cruise ships adhere to very strict security guidelines and practices. If you are
concerned you may want to consider travel insurance. Travel insurance policies can cover
a variety of situations depending on the policy you're purchasing. To learn more, talk
to your travel agent. Ships are equipped with security cameras and have sophisticated
security departments to handle any issues that come up on board.
Special arrangements can be made aboard Oceania if you require diabetic, gluten-free,
lactose-free, kosher, vegetarian or vegan meals. Other diets must be requested for
approval and, in some cases, may require additional medical documentation.
Oceania suggests "country club casual," which means casual, comfortable clothes like
khakis and collared shirts for men, and cotton tops, blouses and skirts and sundresses
for women. Shorts are fine for excursions, and bathing suits and cover-ups for when you
are around the pool. Jeans, shorts, T-shirts, and tennis shoes are discouraged after 6
pm in public rooms. As simple as it seems: make sure to bring your passport! Oceania
collects your passport and holds it throughout the cruise to expedite customs
procedures, but be sure you have it. Be sure to pack personal care essentials, but if
you forget something Oceania Cruises' ships stock many essentials in their
