Oceania Cruises Announces 2014 Itineraries, Return Of Insignia

Oceania Cruises has unveiled its 2014 itineraries featuring 90 voyages, 10 new ports of call, a new line-up of European cruises and the return of Insignia. Collectively, the line’s fleet of 5 luxury, mid-size ships will sail to more than 180 destinations in Alaska, Europe, North America, the Panama Canal and South America.

 

Riviera

Riviera, the line’s newest ship, will spend her entire summer in European waters sailing a series of 7-, 10- and 14-day cruises from April 2014. The itineraries cover the entire length of the Mediterranean Sea, from Barcelona and the French Riviera in the west, the Black Sea in the east and the ports of the holy lands of Egypt and Israel to the south. Ending the season in November 2014, Riviera returns via the Atlantic Ocean to Miami for the winter.

 

Marina

Sister ship Marina begins the European season in June 2014 with a series of cruises in Scandinavia, Russia and the British Isles. Ports of call include Amsterdam, Belfast, Bordeaux, Bremerhaven, Bruges, Copenhagen, Cork, Dublin, Edinburgh, Gdansk, Hamburg, Helsinki, Invergordon, Kirkwall, Klaipeda, London, Lorient, Lysekil, Oslo, Portree, Portland, Riga, Tallinn and Warnemunde, with some itineraries featuring 2-night stays in St. Petersburg. Sailing south to the Mediterranean for the second half of the season, Marina will close her European deployment with a repositioning cruise to Rio de Janeiro from Lisbon in November 2014.

 

Nautica

Nautica’s summer season is a reverse of Marina’s, beginning with Western Mediterranean voyages in May 2014 before heading north to Scandinavia, Russia and the British Isles. Amongst her featured itineraries are 2 back-to-back 20-day arctic voyages. The “Viking Odyssey” explores Greenland and Iceland together with Scotland and Ireland, while the highlight of the “Path of the Midnight Sun” is the scenic cruising of the northern Magdalene Bay and the Polar Ice Barrier.

 

Insignia

Oceania Cruises welcomes back Insignia to the fleet in May 2014 after a two-year charter. She will cruise the Mediterranean, calling at cities such as Bilbao, Lisbon and Bordeaux along the Atlantic coasts of Spain, Portugal and France, while also spending time visiting the Dalmatian Coast with stops in Albania, Croatia, Montenegro and Slovenia.

 

In the autumn, Insignia crosses the Atlantic Ocean to sail a trio of voyages along North America’s eastern seaboard. The ship will visit some of Canada and New England’s most scenic ports, such as Bal Harbor, Boston, Halifax, Saquenay, St. John’s and Sydney, while also including all-time favorites Basseterre, Castries, Montreal, New York, Philipsburg and San Juan.

 

Regatta

Regatta spends her season cruising Alaska with 10 sailings (including 4 new itineraries and several sailing roundtrip from Seattle). She bookends the deployment with voyages transiting the Panama Canal. There are a total of 10 sailings in Alaska, including four new itineraries and several cruises sailing roundtrip from Seattle. Cruisers also get a sneak peek at the ship’s winter itineraries in South America with the early release of the new 24-day “Amazon Odyssey” sailing, departing from Miami on Nov. 4, 2014.
