My #PickoftheWeek is Oceania Cruise Line.
I love working with Oceania because I never need worry about the quality and service my clients will be receiving. Oceania is a premium cruise line whose tag line is Your World Your Way. They really focus their cruises on the destinations and it is not unusual to find an itinerary which has 1 or 2 overnights in selected ports so you have more quality time to explore the regions you are cruising to. If you have sailed with Holland America, Princess or Celebrity in the past, Oceania would be a great choice for your next cruise as an introduction to the world of premium cruising.
The ships of Oceania are the Regatta, Insignia, Nautica, Sirena, Marina and Riviera. They are all comfortably mid-size and range from 684-1250 passengers. The guest to staff ratio is 1.71 to 1. This means you are NOT just a number as is the case with the larger cruise ships that are now the normal in cruising. Larger ships simply cannot provide the pronounced intimacy, coziness and many other advantages of Oceania Cruises. I have been hearing feedback from many of my clients who have recently sailed on some of the mass-market ships that the service and quality of food has declined in the last 1-2 years. With Oceania, you can relax on board their luxurious ships and savor exquisite cuisine that not only is renowned as the finest at sea, but also rivals the best restaurants ashore. Inspired by Master Chef Jacques Pépin, these culinary delights have always been a hallmark that distinguishes the Oceania Cruises experience from any other. Considering the uncompromising quality, perhaps the most remarkable aspect of an Oceania Cruises voyage is its incredible value. Lavish complimentary amenities abound, and there are never supplemental charges in any of the onboard restaurants. Value packages ensure that sipping a glass of vintage wine, surfing the Internet or enjoying a shore excursion is both convenient and affordable. NO dreaded formal nights! They just recommend country club casual clothing for dinner.
