Oceania Cruises was founded in 2002 by two gentlemen who were very familiar with the cruise industry, Joe Watters and Frank Del Rio. The company bills itself as the only "upper premium cruise line" in the world. Oceania Cruises has selected patrons who are looking for a "casually elegant" atmosphere when they are on board one of this company's vessels.
The fleet of mid-sized vessels are staffed at a level to ensure that all passengers receive the level of attention they are expecting while on a destination cruise. With two employees on board for every three guests, any question, concerns or requests are dealt with promptly.
Oceania Cruises visits over 330 ports worldwide. The planned agenda includes a mix of well-known ports of call, as well as ones the average passenger may not be familiar with. The schedule for one of this company's cruises includes a number of overnight stays in interesting locations so that passengers can learn more about the places they are visiting, as well as have some unforgettable experiences by experiencing local culture first hand.
The company's fleet includes:
The Insignia, Nautica, and Regatta can carry 684 passengers in style (double occupancy). All of these ships are in the Regatta Class and measure 593.7 feet in length and 83.5 feet in width.
Accommodations offered on board are as follows:
Passengers can choose from four on-board restaurants offering a variety of dining options from casual dining to continental cuisine, steakhouse, and gourmet Italian fare.
