Oceania Cruises rose from the ashes of Renaissance Cruises – a company that collapsed in the aftermath of 9/11. There were eight virtually identical vessels conveying around 700 passengers, each sported a classic ‘Titanic Moderne meets Ritz Carlton’ style, and appealed to devotees of small-ship cruising. In 2002, the newly-formed Oceania Cruises acquired three of these ships and named them Regatta, Insignia and Nautica; in 2016 a fourth ship was added to the fleet of boutique-style vessels and named Sirena. In a ground-breaking move, Oceania Cruises commissioned the 1,250-passenger Marina and Riviera which entered service in 2011 and 2012 respectively.
An undisputed torchbearer in the ‘upper premium cruising’ stakes, Oceania Cruises offer a luxury experience at a reasonable price. With a relaxed ‘country club casual’ dress code, ships ooze intimacy and the atmosphere is luxurious, sassy and grown-up. Staterooms on the Regatta-class ships are like small, well-appointed hotel rooms; while suites on Marina and Riviera can only be described as über-opulent – enhanced by designer furniture and lush fabrics.
It’s impossible to talk about Oceania Cruises without mentioning cuisine which they’ve raised to an art form, with attention given to even the smallest details, from concept to execution. Aboard Oceania Cruises the culinary management team is almost exclusively French and when the company was founded, celebrated Master Chef Jacques Pépin was appointed Executive Culinary Director. One of America’s first ‘celebrity chefs’, Monsieur Pépin was personal chef to three French heads of state, including Charles de Gaulle. Passengers soon discover menus are vast and balanced; even people who don’t consider themselves food mavens are impressed with the selection.
