“We have opened our Exclusive Upgrade Sale for viewing early on our website so that guests can preview sailings ahead of the official launch on 17 February 2022 and be ready to reserve their place early to avoid disappointment,” said Jason Worth, Vice President Australia & New Zealand, Oceania Cruises. “Combinable with our Reduced 50% Deposits and generous OLife Choice package, this makes for an enticing opportunity for travellers to make up for lost time and to treat themselves to an even higher level of luxury aboard their next Oceania Cruises voyage.”
Guests will benefit from the line’s flexible OLife Choice package, which includes free Pre-Paid Gratuities, as well as being able to choose from one of the following amenities: FREE Shore Excursions, a FREE House Beverage Package or FREE Shipboard Credit.
Onboard one of Oceania Cruises’ small, luxurious vessels, travellers in any stateroom category already have access to a raft of fantastic inclusive amenities, including complimentary dining in all speciality restaurants; gourmet cuisine curated by world-renowned Master Chef, Jacques Pepin; fitness classes; and 24-hour room service.
The Exclusive Upgrade Sale allows guests to further treat themselves to complimentary category upgrades. This includes the pinnacle of perfection – the Penthouse Suite, which can be enjoyed for the same price as a Concierge Level Veranda Stateroom for a limited time.
Guests who choose to indulge in the Penthouse Suite have access to additional inclusions including access to a 24-hour Butler, for services including garment pressing and serving dinner in-suite. Residing in this suite also provides access to several privileges, from pampering with Bvlgari amenities to relaxing on the private veranda and exclusive card-only access to the private Executive Lounge, staffed by a dedicated concierge.
Not only do these curated itineraries feature some of the most culturally vibrant ports of call that Oceania Cruises offers, many of the voyages will also be aboard the “better-than-new” Nautica and Regatta ships. When Nautica resumes sailing on 1 April 2022, the ship will have just emerged from an extensive period in drydock, while Regatta returns to service to sail three new Tahiti itineraries. The debut of Nautica and re-start of Regatta herald the completion of the USD$100+ million OceaniaNEXT rebuild of the brand’s four 684-guest Regatta class ships and the brand’s full return to service, with all six ships sailing the globe once again.
To help spread the word to clients ahead of the official launch on 17 February 2022, travel partners can download the Upgrade Sale Toolkit, or visit our newly revamped Marketing Portal.
