Oceania is gearing up to make 2019 a year to remember for all of their passengers. Offering 2 for 1 on these intimate and luxurious vessels sounds too good to be true, but it’s not. And even with this bargain of a fare, guests will be treated to the full O Life Difference as Oceania likes to put it. Some of these features include open seating at all of the restaurants onboard at no additional charge, enrichment programs both onboard the ship and during shore excursions, and a casual country club atmosphere for the limited number of guests on each ship. The number varies depending on the ship that you choose, but the range is 684 passengers to 1,250 at the high end.
Rome to London
The Wineries and Royalty Cruise is 16 days of pure enjoyment onboard the Marina. And during that time you will have the opportunity to explore 15 of the most famous ports of call and all that they have to offers visitors. After departing Rome you will stop in Tuscany, and then steam on to Monte Carlo. Next is a day in Toulon, France before departing for Spain where you will visit Barcelona, Cartagena, Malaga, and Seville. Your next stops are in Lisbon and Oporto, Portugal before stopping for a day in Bilbao, Spain. Bordeaux, France is not a destination that can be experienced in just a single day so the ship will remain in this area for a total of three glorious days of wine and amazing cuisine. And then a final stop in Saint-Malo, France before docking in London.
Pre-Cruise Land Tour
If you would like to have a more intimate experience when in Rome, you have the option to book a four-day pre-cruise land tour. The Westin Excelsior will be your home prior to your cruise. This landmark has been named to the Conde Nast Traveler Gold List and has hosted celebrities, royalty, and artists for over a century.
Onboard the Marina
This vessel was built in 2011 and underwent a refit in 2016 to offer guests the ultimate in contemporary luxury. She is just under 800 feet in length and weighs in at 66,000 tons. Eleven of the 16 decks are accessible to guests, and the staff of 800 is well equipped to meet the needs and desires of the 1,250 guests when the ship is fully booked. Guests can enjoy seminars, wine tastings, cooking demonstrations and even chat with Kris Smith, the artist-in-residence at the Artists Loft.
For a once in a lifetime cruise to explore some of the most beautiful ports in Europe, the 16-day tour on the Oceania Marina is luxury at its finest.
