A total of 56 Solo Oceanview Staterooms will be available on four vessels, starting in September this year
Oceania Cruises recently announced in a press release on Wednesday the addition of dozens of dedicated staterooms for solo travelers.
The cruise line also disclosed the debut of “Go Green” and “Beyond Blueprints”, shore excursion series.
As the solo travel trend continues to grow, Oceania Cruises — Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd— sees great potential in these independant travelers. Starting in a few months, four company vessels will include 14 solo oceanview staterooms. A total of 56 staterooms for independent explorers.
The new architectural design will be first seen on deck 6 aboard the Regatta on September 25, then on Nautica on September 26, and on Insignia and Sirena on October 1 this year.
Howard Sherman, President & CEO of Oceania Cruises, explained more about this decision: “One of the greatest factors in Oceania Cruises’ success is that we not only listen to the feedback our guests and travel partners provide, we act on it. Our guests and travel partners wanted more options for solo travelers and more diverse tour offerings, and we are delighted to deliver.”
Oceania Cruises is digging deeper into its customers’ needs, and going beyond providing a luxurious cruise service, the possibility to explore impressive destinations worldwide —including around the world cruises—, and outstanding culinary experiences.
Now, the company includes solo travelers’ cabins, environmentally respectful tours, and thoughtful excursions that allow visitors to connect more with the culture, nature, and environment of the destinations visited.
The Solo Oceanview Staterooms
The idea to offer solo travelers their own cabin has been on Oceania Cruises’ plans for some time now. The company first experimented to offer this service on their Vista vessel earlier this year, and the result was a great success. After that sell-out triumph, the cruise line decided to implement it on more ships.
The new staterooms have been created bearing in mind a solo traveler’s needs: to feel comfortable, relaxed, and taken care of. The cabins have been carefully designed, including soothing tones, luxurious furnishing, artwork, a refrigerated minibar, ample storage space, and a convenient Tranquility Bed.
Sherman said: “These new single-occupancy staterooms are ideal for guests seeking the joy of traveling solo while experiencing all the comfort, cuisine, and destination expertise that Oceania Cruises is renowned for.”
The prices for these new single-occupancy cabins have not been revealed yet. According to the information shared by the cruise line, the new oceanview staterooms will be available for reservations within a few days, on April 11, for sailings beginning in September.
Go Green And Beyond Blueprints Tours
Oceania Cruises will be offering over 150 Go Green tours across different countries and destinations, to allow travelers the possibility to engage with residents and local businesses who have developed projects to conserve and sustain the environment.
These tours promise to be entertaining, educational, and life-changing. The cruise line shared a few examples of what their customers can expect. One of the Go Green tours takes place in Bordeaux, France, and travelers will be able to visit the Château de La Dauphine, a biodynamic and organic vineyard that has improved its wine quality by respecting the cycles of nature —including the moon and planets movements— and applies pesticide-free agricultural methods.
From visiting a sanctuary for sloths in Costa Rica to a fascinating hike at the Bach Ma National Park in Vietnam, the Go Green tours are designed to please different interests and provide a great variety of experiences.
The Beyond Blueprints tours, on the other hand, will focus on “the world’s most iconic architectural landmarks” and include in-depth encounters. Travelers will be able to choose from 10 tours in Europe which include The Royal Library in Copenhagen, Denmark; La Villa Méditerranée and MUCEM Marseille, France; and the Equinor office building and the Munchmuseet in Oslo, Norway.
