The cruise line will start selling tickets on March 2 for the world cruise
Oceania Cruises recently released its “2024 Around the Worlds in 180 Days” itinerary where travelers will get to visit 96 destinations and 34 countries. Reservations open on March 2 and tickets start at $47,099 per guest. And for those who prefer a shorter adventure, Oceania Cruises also shared their four Grand Voyages routes of 72 to 82 days.
The cruise line —based in Miami and owned by Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd— announced on their media press that the route around the world will depart from Los Angeles for New York, aboard the luxurious cruise Insignia that can host up to 684 guests, on January 14. During the journey, passengers will navigate three oceans and 15 seas.
The President and CEO of Oceania Cruises, Howard Sherman, expressed his excitement: “Incredibly, last year our 2023 world cruise sold out in just one day, so for 2024 we are providing guests more extended voyage options to deeply and meaningfully rediscover the world.”
Sherman also mentioned more about the meaning of such experience: “While a globe-circling journey is the pinnacle of life-changing travel experiences, we have specially curated a set of Grand Voyages for seasoned and time-rich travelers to navigate storied seas, straits, and oceans that boldly connect diverse and exotic corners of the globe.”
Travelers will also have the option to extend their journey to 196 days and depart from Miami on December 29 of 2023, explore the Caribbean, and then stop at Los Angeles on January 14 to join the 180 days route.
About the Cruises Itineraries
Oceania Cruises is offering its customers a very special experience of 180 days around the world. In their brochure, they describe this globe-circling journey as “a desirable lineup of destinations into a brilliant kaleidoscope of world wonders, marvelous attractions, and exceptional encounters.”
Travelers will get to visit 96 ports, cities with large populations like Japan, and smaller destinations like Paamiut in Greenland, and will also have the opportunity to see over 100 Unesco World Heritage sites.
After departing from Los Angeles aboard the Insignia, adventurers will cruise the Pacific Ocean for six days until their first stop in Hawaii, and then continue to French Polynesia —stopping at Bora Bora— and explore the South Pacific. After visiting New Zealand and Australia, they will cross seas to reach Southeast Asia. Then the adventure reaches Europe: All the Mediterranean coast and then heads north towards Ireland and Iceland. The cruise comes back to America through Greenland and Canada, and then makes its final stop in New York on July 12.
