About Oceania Cruises
Formed in 2002 by luxury cruise industry veterans Joe Watters and Frank Del Rio, Oceania Cruises is the world’s only upper premium cruise line. Cuisine, Comfort, Service and outstanding value are the pillars that define Oceania Cruises’ five-star product and have positioned the line as the cruise company of choice for travelers seeking a truly refined and casually elegant travel experience.
Our intimate and luxurious ships allow you to explore the world in unequalled style and comfort. Sophisticated, stylish and distinctly mid-size, you’ll find the onboard atmosphere is extremely convivial, and with an unrivaled level of personalized service as a result of us having two staff members for every three guests.
As the leader in destination cruising, Oceania Cruises sails to more than 330 ports around the globe. Itineraries are unique in that they call on the perfect mix of must-see marquee and boutique, off-the-beaten-path ports. Multiple overnight calls afford an in-depth, enriching destination experience and allow travelers to immerse themselves in the cuisine, culture and history of the ports we visit.
Oceania Cruises has (2) new ships, the first of its kind designed specifically for Epicureans – Marina which was introduced in 2011 and the equally highly anticipated Riviera in 2012. Both ships offer the finest cuisine at sea, warm and personalized service and a destination experience that is second to none, as their acclaimed and sister ships Regatta, Insignia and Nautica.
Oceania Cruises, with headquarters in Miami, is owned by Prestige Cruise Holdings. Prestige Cruise Holdings was formed in 2007 to manage select assets in Apollo Management’s cruise investment portfolio and is the market leader in the Upper Premium and Luxury segments of the cruise industry with nearly 4,000 berths between the Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises brands, a number the company expects will grow to approximately 6,500 berths by mid-2012.
Oceania Cruises appeals to discerning, sophisticated travelers in search of world-class cuisine, unparalleled personal service, and an enriching, in-depth, destination-oriented experience.
