Oceania Cruises

Built: 1998

Tonnage: 30,277
Guest Capacity: 684 (Double Occupancy)
Length: 593.7 feet
Width: 83.5 feet
Draft: 19.5 feet
Cruising Speed: 18.5 knots


Six courses of American-inspired Continental cuisine are served atop elegantly appointed tables set with Villeroy & Boch China and European crystal in the formal dining room.

Attire is always resort casual and meals are open seating in the dining room and by reservation in the specialty restaurants: Toscana, the Italian trattoria and the steakhouse, Polo Grill.

Each evening, the alfresco dining area of the casual Terrace Cafe becomes Tapas on the Terrace with a buffet featuring authentic tapas, paellas and other regional specialties from Spain and the surrounding Mediterranean.

All accommodations feature Oceania's "Tranquility Bed" with euro top mattresses, plush duvets, goose down pillows, and Egyptian cotton linens.

Concierge Level Staterooms with balconies in preferred locations on Deck 7 offer an extra level of service comparable to suites, including priority embarkation, restaurant reservations and luggage delivery; welcome aboard champagne; refrigerator in stateroom; complimentary tote bag; upgraded toiletries and bath amenities; and complimentary shoe shine and garment pressing.

Each Oceania ship has a passenger laundry room with ironing stations.

Smoking is permitted only in the aft port side of Horizons, and the starboard forward section of the outdoor Pool Deck. All other areas are smoke-free, including all cabins and balconies, restaurants, public rooms, and open decks except for the two designated smoking areas. Oceania has some of the most restrictive smoking regulations at sea with a "zero tolerance" policy. Strict penalties are imposed upon those who smoke outside designated areas—up to and including disembarkation from the ship. 

Numerous activities are available, such as wine tastings, culinary demonstrations, computer classes, and stimulating lectures by featured celebrity guest speakers.

Before visiting each port of call, the cruise director presents a historical background on the culture, traditions, and language of the upcoming destination.

The dessert cart at afternoon tea is a decadent treat.
