Experience You can have it all Whoever said, “You can’t have it all,” never sailed the mid-size ships of Oceania Cruises. By beautifully blending elegance and luxury with exceptional intimacy and warmth, Regatta, Insignia, Nautica and the new Marina offer all of the indulgences you could possibly imagine. This exquisite fleet will be joined by the incomparable Riviera in spring 2012. The welcoming, convivial ambiance onboard instantly puts you at ease, encouraging you to fully enjoy the inherent benefits of ships masterfully designed on a human scale. One of the most striking advantages is the generous ratio of staff to guests, which allows for an astonishingly high level of personalized service. Where You Belong Our Executive Culinary Director, the esteemed Jacques Pépin, ensures that our cuisine maintains its reputation as “the finest at sea.” Open-seating in as many as six restaurants frees you to dine when, where and with whom you wish, all without supplemental charges. The remarkably expansive Canyon Ranch SpaClub® facility promotes healthy, balanced living. Our ideally sized ships provide all the ingredients for you to flourish, even ashore as our itineraries seamlessly meld marquee ports with boutique destinations inaccessible to larger vessels. The moment you step onboard, you know that this is no ordinary cruise experience. This is where you belong. This is “Your World, Your Way.”

Ambiance What a Joy to Feel at Home Away from Home Isn’t it wonderful to feel welcome and comfortable when traveling? It makes the experience so much more enjoyable and encourages you to mingle and explore. Our ships just naturally exude a warm, inviting ambiance that instantly allows you to be yourself. It’s so refreshingly casual and friendly that it’s like being in a private country club where everyone knows your name. This is elegance without pretension or the need for tuxedos and formal gowns. This is a world where you can enjoy all life has to offer. Come and Go as You Please The overwhelming sense of comfort and belonging seems to kindle geniality. Striking up conversations and making new friends becomes effortless. Meet over cocktails in Martinis and recount adventures ashore. Ask another couple to join you for a friendly game of Bridge. You’ll find it exceedingly easy to be sociable. Even so, sometimes you may feel less gregarious and want nothing more than to relax by yourself. Take comfort in knowing that there are plenty of private retreats as well.

Service Impeccable Service with a Personal Touch Our ships boast an impressive staff-to-guest ratio, but it’s more than sheer numbers that elevates our personalized service into the sublime. Our staff genuinely care about keeping you happy and content throughout your voyage. Being of service comes naturally, a trait as innate as their unbridled enthusiasm. You can see it in their warm smiles and hear it in the sincere tone of their voices, as our staff zealously devote their full attention to fulfilling your needs. Their commitment runs deep and never diminishes, no matter what the task. Only the Best of the Best Not everyone holds the impeccable credentials to join our international staff; only those who have distinguished themselves in the world’s finest hotels and most exquisite restaurants will do. They are true professionals with the rare ability to fastidiously attend to every detail and magically anticipate your needs. The ease with which they remember your name, preferences and wishes borders on miraculous. Nowhere is this talent more evident than among the private Butlers who meticulously care for guests in all suite accommodations. Meticulous attention to every detail is Oceania Cruises’ signature  8 |

The Finest Cuisine at Sea Realized

Gourmet Italian dining at Toscana

Boldly claiming to serve “the finest cuisine at sea” might seem to be hyperbole. But we wouldn’t make such an immodest assertion if not for the tremendous contribution of the legendary Master Chef Jacques Pépin. As our Executive Culinary Director, he inspires our chefs to perform feats of gastronomic wizardry.

Being mid-size, our ships afford our chefs the luxury of cooking for fewer guests. Never having to rush or create dishes en masse liberates them to meticulously prepare your individual order, exactly as you wish and just as you would expect in the finest restaurants, using only the freshest and finest ingredients. In harmony with its philosophy of encouraging a healthy, balanced lifestyle, Canyon Ranch® offers its delicious and nutritious gourmet cuisine onboard our ships.

So authentic you could be in Italy Enjoy Family Recipes Handed Down Through Generations In Italian, Toscana means Tuscan, and every aspect of this magnificent restaurant pays homage to that beloved region of Italy. Just as Tuscan cuisine evolved from rich family traditions, many of our recipes originated with the grandmothers and mothers of our own Italian culinary staff. Similarly, the sommeliers are from long lines of wine-producing families, so they inherently know the characteristics of each vintage, which ensures that their recommendations perfectly complement the simple yet keenly balanced Tuscan cuisine. Presented on elegant, custom-designed Versace china, each dish is a masterpiece that exemplifies the essence of Tuscany and celebrates Italy’s culinary passion.

Passion for French cuisine

“Food, for me, is inseparable from sharing. There is no great meal unless it is shared with family or friends.”

The First Restaurant to Ever Bear Jacques pépin’s Name Exquisitely decorated with heirloom antiques, pickled wood furnishings and art from Jacques Pépin’s personal collection, Marina’s Jacques was modeled after a Parisian bistro. Comfortable and eclectic, the ambiance is pure French, as is the cosmopolitan yet wonderfully embraceable cuisine. Luscious aromas waft from the gleaming glass-and-brass show rotisserie, where chicken, duck, pork and veal roasts slowly turn. Each dish is a classic, ingeniously reinterpreted by Master Chef Pépin. This is Coq Au Vin beyond the imagination. Rotisserie-roasted chicken falls off the bone, bursting with flavor. His Steak Frites pairs the succulence of prime beef with the crisp sweetness of pommes de terre. Jacques is absolutely magnifique. Jacques is featured onboard Marina

30-Day Voyage

32 |

2011-2012 winter Collection

With a full month to explore, this enthralling voyage presents the sparkling gems of the Indian Ocean and the very best of exotic Africa. Gaze upon the glorious Gothic Victorian buildings dotting the Fort district of Mumbai, India’s economic powerhouse. Enjoy an enchanted evening in Cape Town, allowing plenty of time to explore its hidden treasures, and spend another night in Dubai, where you may dine Bedouin-

style in the starlit desert. Beyond the big cities there’s a world few travelers experience. Drive into the verdant hinterlands surrounding Nosy Be, the air sweetly perfumed with ylang-ylang. Dine on spicy Creole cuisine in a café in Pointe des Galets on French-influenced Réunion Island. Visit the Zulu homeland in the distant hills outside Durban. And that is only the beginning.

Asian Wonders singapore to hong kong

15-Day Voyage

36 |

2011-2012 winter Collection

In homage to the opposing Chinese principles of yin and yang, this Asian voyage masterfully contrasts burgeoning metropolises with more intimate ports. Laid-back Ko Samui, the “Coconut Island,” revolves around serene seaside activities, while Bangkok is always abuzz, especially with its dizzying nightlife. Spirited Saigon juxtaposes sobering sites like the War Remnants Museum with an abundance

of temples such as the Emperor Jade Pagoda. The dramatic, natural scenery of Ha Long Bay plays well against Hanoi, where you may spend the evening shopping in the Old Quarter for silk goods. Canton is a shopper’s dream with its extraordinary markets, a wonderful contrast to Ream National Park, a lush setting for bird watching near Sihanoukville.

2011-2012 winter Collection

Explore the lifestyles of the royal and regal on this sweeping voyage through the Far East. While in Brunei, see the extravagant Sultan’s Palace, the world’s largest residential palace, its golden domes glinting in the sun. Marvel at a collection of priceless artifacts from China’s Forbidden City, which are now housed in Taipei’s National Palace Museum. Tour Bangkok’s sacred Marble Temple, where the ashes of

King Rama V are buried beneath one of the many Buddha statues. Wonderfully extravagant attractions dominate, but not everywhere. Lush vegetation blankets Romblon Island, where you might partake of the local Filipino cuisine. Thailand’s laid-back Ko Samui is also a natural tropical paradise rimmed by long stretches of beach. Whether simple or lavish, the attractions are breathtaking.

25-Day Voyage

2011-2012 winter Collection

Some destinations are so outstanding they simply beg to be explored in depth, and this voyage happily grants that wish by offering a generous seven overnight stays. The possibilities for adventure are truly without limit. See the labyrinthine Cu Chi Tunnels near Saigon used by the Vietnamese during wartime. Watch a dazzling performance by Chinese acrobats in cosmopolitan Shanghai. Shop for anything from exquisite

silk fashions to traditional Daruma dolls in exuberant Tokyo. Take a fun-loving ride through the streets of Bangkok on a Tuk Tuk, an open-air, three-wheeled taxi. The ports of call between these evenings ashore are equally stunning and range from Japan’s marvelous Kyoto to South Korea’s energetic Seoul, where a slice of serenity awaits you in Namsan Park.

2011-2012 winter Collection

Concentrating on the most definitive destinations within Japan and China, this exceptional voyage presents the Far East like never before. For good measure, Nautica also calls on the South Korean capital of Seoul, a shopper’s delight, especially for antiques in the alleyways of the Insadong district. For a historical perspective of Nagoya, tour its namesake castle whose golden dolphins have

become the city’s symbol. Similarly, the Imperial Palace, the emperor’s primary residence, reflects the heart and soul of Tokyo. By spending the evening in each Chinese port, you can absorb the culture at your own leisurely pace. What a treat not to be rushed as you browse the world’s largest indoor aquarium in Beijing, or ride a traditional sampan through Hong Kong harbor before a shopping spree.

2011-2012 winter Collection

This intriguing voyage bids adieu to the Far East in style, calling on Asia’s marquee destinations. Enterprising Saigon exudes confidence, welcoming visitors to attractions such as its spectacular Chinatown and popular Mekong Delta. Thriving Bangkok enthralls with ancient temples like Wat Po, whose grounds contain more than 1,000 statues of Buddha. Manicured Singapore tempts with legendary

shopping and its thoughtfully designed Zoological Gardens. India sparkles in the picturesque beaches of Cochin and through the vibrancy of Mumbai, where you may tour the 7th century rock-cut temples of Elephanta Caves. Four amazing days in Egypt are another wonderful highlight, putting the Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, Luxor’s Valley of the Kings and medieval Cairo at your doorstep.

South Pacific &Australia PARADISE UNVEILED Join Oceania Cruises for its inaugural forays to the paradise of the South Pacific. Like a string of pearls strung exquisitely across the South Seas, the natural beauty and incomparable lure of Fiji, Tahiti and the Hawaiian Islands are irresistible. For those who wish to journey to the farthest reaches of the Pacific, tantalizing itineraries to iconic Australia and diverse New Zealand are easily at hand. GOLDEN SUNSETS and SILVER SANDS These remarkable journeys include two epic sojourns that combine the best of Hawaii, Christmas Island, French Polynesia and Tahiti. Along the way, one fabled isle after another rises from the sea in iconic locations like Pago Pago and Bora Bora. Visit Paul Gauguin’s house in Hiva Oa, or sample tuluk, nalot or lap lap in Port Vila; it’s all paradise. While big and brawny Australia delights you with its friendliness, the diversity and unbridled energy of New Zealand will amaze you and be forever etched into your fondest of memories.  The impossibly clear waters of French Polynesia w w w. o c e a n i ac r u i s e s . co m

2 0 1 1 - 2 0 1 2 w i n t e r C o ll e c t i o n

The season’s only two voyages to Hawaii string together one paradise after another, more than half of them in idyllic French Polynesia. Even the most alluring photos pale when compared to experiencing these amazing islands in person. Tour Bora Bora’s aquamarine lagoon in an outrigger canoe. Or head out on your own for a hike through an emerald-green rainforest on Christmas Island, nearly two-thirds of which is national

parkland. Educate yourself on Tahiti’s coveted black pearls at Papeete’s Pearl Museum, and then sagely shop for them downtown. Hawaii flaunts its infinite beauty in Honolulu’s iconic Waikiki Beach and throughout the Garden Isle of Kauai, where you might tour a sugar plantation from the 1800s. See a different side of history at Hulihee Palace in Kailua-Kona, once the vacation home for Hawaiian royalty.

With its boundless beauty and captivating cultures, French Polynesia certainly warrants the attention of an entire voyage, and you will see it from every possible angle. Snorkel through the stunningly clear waters off the coast of Rangiroa, where the visibility is usually at least 150 feet. Behold the breathtaking vistas of placid Cooks’ and Opunohu bays from Moorea’s towering Roto Nui viewpoint. Spend an evening in

Bora Bora, which offers an abundance of time to shop for black pearls and still explore its sacred marae, which are ancient stone constructions used for prayer. Then, there are the Marquesas, isolated islands so impossibly gorgeous they have long inspired artists such as Herman Melville, who wrote about Nuku Hiva, and Paul Gauguin, who is buried in Hiva Oa.

Splendors of Down Under auckland to sydney

16-Day Voyage

2 0 1 1 - 2 0 1 2 w i n t e r C o ll e c t i o n

A wonderful expression of the dichotomy Down Under, this spectacular voyage combines Australia’s cosmopolitan culture with the natural beauty of less populated New Zealand. For a grand view of the countryside surrounding Melbourne, ride a vintage steam train through the fertile Yarra Valley and stop in one of its highly regarded wineries. In seductive Sydney, a tour of its famed Opera House is a must-see,

as is visiting lovely Bondi Beach, a mecca for surfers. Nature is the major draw of New Zealand, as you will witness firsthand by visiting Rotorua, the Maori homeland, near Tauranga. The English influence is evident in the stone bridges and elegant Victorian architecture in Christchurch. Of course, the bigger cities such as fashionable Wellington exude a sophistication all their own.

2 0 1 1 - 2 0 1 2 w i n t e r C o ll e c t i o n

Bridging the iconic islands of French Polynesia and ravishing New Zealand, this voyage boldly displays the South Pacific’s diversity, which is often overlooked. In sprawling Suva, the capital of the more than 300 islands that comprise Fiji, you might shop for smart fashions and exquisite native jewelry. Traditional culture is the allure of the sacred island of Raiatea, where you may enjoy a tour of some of Polynesia’s

best-preserved historical sites, such as the Taputapuatea marae complex. The backdrop of steep cliffs in scenic Pago Pago invites outdoor dining on Samoan dishes such as supoesi, a soup made with pawpaw and coconut cream. Similarly, Port Vila is considered the gourmet capital of the island nation of Vanuatu. One of the joys of Nouméa is browsing the expressive Polynesian art in its Tjibaou Cultural Centre.

South America A CONTINENT OF WONDROUS BEAUTY Cruising South America serves to highlight the remarkable contrasts this continent has to offer, from the highest peaks of the snow-covered Andes to the golden plains of Patagonia, and from the eclectic thrill of Rio de Janeiro to languid coastal retreats like Porto Belo. Our South America itineraries bring you to the continent’s undiscovered treasures and to destinations of timeless charm. A FEAST FOR THE SENSES With a bounty of voyages filled with contrasts, you can learn the Samba in Brazil and the Tango in Argentina, navigate around the southernmost tip of land before Antarctica, sail the fjords of Chile, soar over the puzzling Nazca Lines or journey to Machu Picchu. Perhaps you wish to explore the wilds of the Amazon River, from the delta to Manaus, and immerse yourself in the flora, fauna and lore of these fabled jungle lands. The region’s rich history, unique cultures and extraordinary wildlife create a once in a lifetime experience as vivid as the tropical landscapes.  Patagonia was named by Magellan in 1520 and encompasses the southernmost section of the Andes w w w. o c e a n i ac r u i s e s . co m

2011-2012 winter Collection

The mid-section of South America’s eastern shore, from robust Rio de Janeiro to bold Buenos Aires, abounds with natural beauty and irresistible attractions. It is especially inviting this season, as Insignia follows a route between these two must-see metropolises that encompasses the region’s very best. The marvels of Uruguay shine in glamorous Punta del Este and the capital of Montevideo, a gourmand’s

paradise. Brazil trumpets its magnificence in Rio’s samba shows, chic Buzios, known as “Brazil’s St. Tropez,” and idyllic Ilha Grande, the entire island of which is a state park with meandering walking trails where you may spot curious monkeys and exotic hummingbirds. During a glorious overnight in cultured Buenos Aires, enjoy strolling and shopping along its wide boulevards.

Rio de janeiro to valparaiso

19-Day Voyage

2011-2012 winter Collection

Can there be a more naturally beautiful place than the enchanted coastline between Rio de Janeiro and Valparaiso? We think not. Laguna San Rafael boasts an amazing namesake national park where you might take a catamaran tour to observe calving glaciers, dolphin and elephant seals. Cruising the pristine Chilean Fjords inspires awe, and from Punta Arenas you can travel to the interior of Patagonia where the

views of majestic mountains and sapphire glaciers will take your breath away. The more civilized attractions are equally stunning. The waterfront in Puerto Montt offers a lovely setting to enjoy a regional dish such as spicy salmon ceviche. Montevideo and its historic Port Market exude culture. And for nightlife, few cities hold a candle to exuberant Rio de Janeiro, where you will spend a magnificent evening.

Amazing Amazon new york to miami

27-Day Voyage

66 |

2011-2012 winter Collection

The luxury of time is only one of the pleasures that make this amazing voyage so special. Rarely does any journey offer so much variety. Cruise into the heart of the Amazon for an evening in vibrant Manaus, where you may witness the awe-inspiring Meeting of the Waters. An evening in Hamilton allows time to shop for Irish crystal along Front Street and still explore the rest of Bermuda.

If you’re feeling adventurous, snorkel the coral reefs off Grand Turk, and ride a zip line through the rainforest canopy in mountainous St. Lucia. For a taste of the tropics, try Trinidad’s national dish of Callaloo, which is served as soup or as a sauce for traditional dishes. To satisfy your interest in history, visit Gustavia’s Wall House Museum, which traces St. Barts’ past from the time of Columbus onward.

Ancient Mysteries

valparaiso to valparaiso 16-Day Voyage

68 |

2011-2012 winter Collection

Concentrating on South America’s magical western shore, this exquisite sailing presents a rare glimpse into South America’s ancient world. With two evenings in Lima, you might explore the ruins of the enigmatic Inca village of Machu Picchu and delve deeply into the archaeological treasures in the capital’s National Museum. More historic wonders await you in the unusual Museum of Andean

Sanctuaries in Arequipa, where an intact frozen child sacrificed by Inca priests in the 1500s is on display. In Pisco, you will have the opportunity to fly over the mystifying Nazca Lines, the famed giant geoglyphs carved into the high desert floor. Natural attractions distinguish Chile, especially in the Bavarian-like Lake District near Puerto Montt and in beautiful Puerto Chacabuco on the edge of Patagonia.

Caribbean & Panama Canal AZURE WATERS beckon Be prepared to experience the Caribbean islands as never before. Pristine beaches and turquoise waters combine with tony culture and rich history in a world of swaying palms, balmy days and sultry evenings of bliss. Our Caribbean is an uncommon and exquisite one because we can take you where larger ships do not dare and crowds simply do not exist. IDYLLIC EXPLORATIONS Oceania Cruises’ Caribbean is filled with exciting destinations; some are old favorites and many are off the beaten path. Hobnob among the jet-set in St. Barts, admire the lush foliage and verdant fauna of Dominica or simply and quite literally soak in the warm sunshine on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches on Virgin Gorda. The western Caribbean will satiate your appetite for adventure and exploration. Hike among the majestic Mayan ruins at Tulum, overlooking the impossibly blue Caribbean Sea, snorkel or cave dive in Roatan or simply marvel at the engineering genius of the Panama Canal.  The pristine sands of Bottom Bay Beach in Barbados w w w. o c e a n i ac r u i s e s . co m

Islands in the Sun Miami to miami

10-Day Voyage

72 |

2011-2012 winter Collection

These voyages presents the definitive Caribbean in a delightful array of sun-splashed islands. Being rather British, Virgin Gorda offers several traditional English pubs, but their menus embrace an engaging Caribbean flair. St. Barts is très Parisian, although the capital of Gustavia was named for a Swedish king, and many of its residents are of Scandinavian and French descent. Snorkeling is among the main draws of

Antigua, especially at Cades Reef. The southern coast of Tortola, where Road Harbor sits, is renowned for its rugged mountains and tropical forest, which are criss-crossed with hiking paths. The lush farmland and forests of the Dominican Republic are strikingly pastoral, and a Jeep Safari offers a unique way to see it. Grand Turk beguiles with its island charm and stunning natural beauty.

Mayan Mystique miami to miami

10-Day Voyage

76 |

2011-2012 winter Collection

Concentrating on the aquamarine seas of the Western Caribbean, this voyage presents a collection of wonderful ports with rich histories. Under British rule since 1670, affluent Grand Cayman attracts shoppers looking for fine jewelry and cashmere. Cozumel anchors the lush Yucatan Peninsula, once the heart of the Mayan empire. The Maya were also prevalent in the area that’s now modern

Belize City and in Guatemala’s Santo Tomas, where you are likely to hear Mayan dialects spoken as you walk the winding cobblestone streets. Roatan abounds with water sports, but also tempts with attractions ashore such as Gumbalimba Preservation Park. Costa Maya earned its place on this itinerary for its archaeological significance, particularly in the Mayan ruins at Chacchoben.

Ultimate Panama Canal

San francisco to new york

21-Day Voyage

78 |

2011-2012 winter Collection

This ambitious Panama Canal cruise masterfully balances days at sea with an even more generous amount of time ashore. The diversity of ports is truly remarkable. Take advantage of the late departure from Savannah to linger in its historic district, the streets lined with gnarled oaks dripping with Spanish moss. Shop for colorful, hand-blown glassware in graceful Puerto Vallarta. Swim with gentle

stingrays in the crystalline waters off Grand Cayman. Tour one of the oldest coffee plantations in the majestic Sierra Madre Mountains near Puerto Chiapas. Visit Fort Sumter at the entrance to Charleston Harbor, where the first shots of America’s Civil War were fired in 1861. Of course, the highlight at the heart of this voyage is the amazing transit of the Panama Canal.

Passage to Panama Miami to Los angeles

16-Day Voyage

80 |

2011-2012 winter Collection

This enchanting, coast-to-coast voyage focuses on the Pacific Riviera, but ingeniously sprinkles in other superb destinations for flair. It’s all made possible by a transit of the Panama Canal, a marvel of engineering that was first envisioned by the Spanish in the early 1500s, but not completed until more than 400 years later by the United States. History buffs will delight in a walking

tour of colonial Cartagena, followed by a shopping spree in the lovely Bocagrande district. Free spirits will be captivated by Key West’s exuberance for life. Still, Mexico is the star during much of this cruise, as Regatta skirts along the country’s radiant western shore. The resort city of Huatulco revolves around the water, offering fabulous snorkeling. In contrast, Acapulco exudes a cosmopolitan energy.

Tropical Holiday Miami to miami

12-Day Voyage

84 |

2011-2012 winter Collection

The holidays always feel more blissful at sea, especially in the radiant Caribbean. For here, among the gently swaying palms and turquoise waters, each day is a celebration. Toast the afternoon with a flute of champagne in one of the many bistros in St. Barts, the jewel of the French West Indies.

2011-2012 winter Collection

Blissful days meld into serene nights. This exquisite crossing stands alone for its thoughtful mix of must-see destinations and relaxing days at sea. Docking for the evening at King’s Wharf at the tip of hook-shaped Bermuda allows you to explore the entire island, starting at the imposing Maritime Museum, housed in a fortress right at your doorstep. History is just as revered in Tangier, a Moroccan beauty renowned for its

17th century Kasbah district of affluent residences and shops. Of course, Marina is quite the destination herself, as you will discover between ports while sailing uninterrupted across the deep-blue Atlantic. While away the hours on deck, surrender to a soothing hot stone massage in the Canyon Ranch SpaClub®, master a new recipe at the Bon Appétit Culinary Center, or mingle with newfound friends.

Exotic Crossing

Rio de janeiro to barcelona 16-Day Voyage

2011-2012 winter Collection

Unusually rich in destinations, this crossing calls on a half-dozen radiant jewels on both sides of the Atlantic. In between, shimmering like a diamond, lies Cape Verde, whose mountain-backed Porto Grande overlooks a gorgeous volcanically formed bay. Brazil flaunts its diversity in Natal, home to the star-shaped Fort of the Three Kings, and in Salvador, where you may spend the evening listening to live

music in the historic town center of Pelourinho. Morocco too exudes energy, especially in its largest city of Casablanca, which feels quite European. Another wonderful highlight of this crossing is Lanzarote, the easternmost of the Canary Islands. While its landscape looks almost lunar in places, the lava-based soil is surprisingly fertile and produces fine grapes used for elegant, sweet malmseys.

For those who were intrigued by Hong Kong and wish to explore the region further, a wonderful experience awaits you on the western side of the Pearl River Delta in magical, mysterious Macau, where citizens enjoy the highest life expectancy in the world. As Macau was both the first and last European colony in China, it certainly defines East meeting West, and the Portuguese presence is strikingly evident. Marvel at the richness of Macau’s history and culture during a visit to the Museum of Macau. Witness the impressive facade of the Ruins of St. Paul. As Macau is known as the “Monte Carlo of the Orient,” any visit must include a trip to the famous casinos.

In the years following the atomic bomb blast in 1945, scientists doubted that Hiroshima could ever live again. Yet modern Hiroshima rose like a phoenix from its own ashes, now a vital city with a population of one million and growing. Visit the remarkable landmarks of Hiroshima, a self-declared city of peace dedicated to a world free of nuclear weapons. Continue on to Kyoto, considered to be the cultural and artistic heart of the nation.

The Chobe Chilwero Lodge in Botswana sits above the Chobe River, offering panoramic views across miles of islands and flood plains.

Then capture the fabulous vista of Victoria Falls, in sheer scope the largest waterfall in the world. Known to locals as the “smoke that thunders,” its roar deafens as the Zambezi River plunges into the chasm below.

The Amazon rainforest is one of the world’s greatest and most important natural resources, as 20% of the earth’s oxygen is produced here. Situated in the heart of the jungle, the Eco-Park Lodge allows you to experience the rainforest up close. Join a rustic riverboat cruise and marvel at the wild orchids, gaze at the giant trees and spy on the uncatalogued species of wildlife. Afterwards, visit nearby Monkey Island for the unforgettable experience of observing researchers working to rehabilitate monkeys that were once held captive.

Discovered in 1541 by Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca, Iguaçu Falls is considered to be the most extraordinary geological display in South America. Iguaçu means “great waters,” as the crescent of falls spans a spectacular two and a half miles. Straddling the border between Argentina and Brazil, the falls are fed by the Rio Iguaçu. The waters travel 750 miles to the falls where they comprise 250 magnificent cascades that plunge some 260 feet into the forest below. A mystifying spectacle of rainbows graces the mist as an awe-inspiring crescendo.

Wonder at the beauty of the mysterious citadel, Machu Picchu, known as the “Lost City of the Incas.” Perched 7,900 feet above sea level on a mountain ridge, this archaeological jewel is the most famous icon of the Inca world. Equally fascinating is nearby Cuzco, the historic capital of the Inca empire, a city that blends colonial Spanish charm with the more ancient remains of Pre-Columbian glory. En route to these ancient cities, explore colonial Arequipa and enjoy the spectacular scenery of the surrounding volcanic mountains and valleys.

European-Peruvians established Iquitos as a Jesuit mission to the indigenous peoples in the 1750s. During the rubber boom of the late 19th century, Iquitos attracted thousands of immigrants from around the world, creating a diverse culture of ethnically mixed families. After a tour of Iquitos, enjoy a 25-mile riverboat journey down the Amazon River to your lodge in the Amazon rainforest. You may choose to visit a Yagua Indian village and learn firsthand about the native culture, or perhaps you prefer to venture along the Canopy Walkway, suspended over 100 feet in the air, for a tree-top view of the amazing Amazon wildlife and vegetation.

In 1987 archaeologist Walter Alva uncovered one of the most important finds in the Western Hemisphere, the “Lord of Sipan,” often compared to the discovery of King Tut in Egypt. Not only will you visit the famous tomb of the 4th century Moche lord, but you will also enjoy the unique opportunity to have dinner with Walter Alva himself. Then continue on to Trujillo and see the Colonial and Republican houses that stand as reminders of the city’s opulence during those periods of its history, while also exploring archaeological gems such as the Temple of the Moon, an enormous adobe pyramid with extensive burial grounds and fine murals.

3-Day Overland Tour from Lima (Callao)

4-Day Overland Tour from Arequipa (MatarAni) to Lima (Callao)

More than twice as deep as the Grand Canyon, Colca Canyon in southern Peru is an awesome natural wonder formed by the waters of the Colca River. The charming Colca Valley is dotted with tiny mountain villages formerly inhabited by the Collagua and Cabana peoples, as well as small towns founded in Spanish colonial times. The locals still maintain ancestral traditions and continue to cultivate the pre-Inca stepped terraces. Join in adventurous activities like sport fishing, horseback riding and bicycle tours, or spend some time indoors with enrichment programs such as cooking or painting classes.

This exciting and enigmatic journey to the “coastal desert” in Peru will take you to see the Nazca Lines, one of the world’s great mysteries. The Nazca Lines are a series of drawings of animals, birds, human figures, and geometric shapes ranging in size up to 1,000 feet across. Preserved for an estimated 2,000 years on this desert crust, the lines have prompted many theories of their creation–from God to aliens. Also visit the Ballesta Islands, known as the “Galapagos of Peru” due to the impressive array of wildlife on the island. 3-Day Overland Tour from Lima (Callao) to Pisco

Pre – & Post – Cruise Convenience Hotel Program more options, greater value For Winter 2011-2012 sailings, we have expanded our Pre- and Post-Cruise Hotel Program to offer guests an additional level of hotel options. Our new Convenience Hotel Program presents our guests standard hotel choices that were previously not available. While more affordable than ultra-luxurious hotels, these hotels still must adhere to our high standards for quality, comfort and ambiance. Each of the hotels included in our Convenience Program is smartly located within a major city or gateway airport and offers superior service. As a result, they have all been recognized by the hospitality industry and lauded by guests for being consistently reliable and wonderfully gratifying. While little has been sacrificed, plenty has been gained in the way of value. The rates for our Convenience Program hotels are surprisingly affordable, especially considering their many attributes and conveniences. They are truly a great value, much like the Oceania Cruises Experience. Bangkok Novotel Suvarnabhumi Airport Hotel

Additionally, reimbursement is provided for penalties that may be assessed due to cruise cancellations for covered reasons.

Oceania Cruises offers an optional air program to assist guests in their travel plans. Oceania Cruises has contracted with major domestic and international airlines to secure space and discounted airfares. Discounted airfares in Economy, Business and First Class service are available to Oceania Cruises guests for purchase in order to make traveling to and from your cruise as convenient as possible.

No refund will be made for unused or partially used portions of the cruise, air or land programs including shore excursions except as specifically outlined in the Guest Ticket/Contract. Cancellation and Refunds A 100% cancellation fee will be imposed as indicated for non-appearance or the absence of written notice.

Responsibility Oceania Cruises accepts no liability or responsibility, whether occasioned by railroad, motor coach, private car, boat, aircraft or any other conveyance for any injuries, damages, loss, accident, delay or irregularity which may be caused either by reason of defect, through the acts or defaults of any company or person or in carrying out the arrangements of the cruise or cruisetour as a result of any cause beyond the control of Oceania Cruises. Guests specifically release Oceania Cruises from any and all claims for loss or damage to baggage or property or from personal injuries or death, or from loss or delay arising out of the acts, omissions or negligence of any independent contractors, such as air carriers, hotels, shore excursion operators, restauranteurs, transportation providers, medical personnel or other providers of services or facilities. All arrangements made with independent contractors are made solely for the convenience of guests and are done at the guests’ own risk. Medical personnel are independent contractors. Oceania Cruises specifically disclaims all liabilities for damages for emotional distress, mental suffering or psychological injury of any kind, except to the extent provided by 46 U.S.C. §183. Tickets, vouchers and any other travel documents are subject to all terms and conditions of the respective suppliers, some of which may limit a supplier’s liability. Please refer to the Guest Ticket/Contract for further detailed information. Air Transportation Oceania Cruises, as an added service to our guests, offers arrangements for air travel in conjunction with a cruise. Air arrangements, including routings, are at Oceania Cruises’ (or its agents’) discretion, and are based on flight availability and agreements among various airlines, Oceania Cruises and independent contractors. Special requests, including class of service upgrades, specific carriers and routing are at the discretion of Oceania Cruises. Upgrades apply to International flights and may not apply to U.S. domestic or intra-continental flights within North America, Europe, South America, Asia or Africa. In making these arrangements, Oceania Cruises acts only as an agent on the guest(s’) behalf, and does not operate, control, or supervise any airlines and will not be responsible for carriers failing to meet schedules whether or not air tickets were issued by Oceania Cruises. Air tickets are refundable to Oceania Cruises only and are considered a part of the total cruise or cruisetour fare. Air ticketing fees and air fuel surcharges may apply. Any airline-imposed fees that result from changes to or cancellation of air arrangements are the sole responsibility of the guest. Seat Assignments & Pre-Flight Arrangements Any pre-flight arrangements, such as seat assignments, frequent flyer programs, wheelchair requests, oxygen or special meal requests must be made by the guest directly with the airlines based on their policies and procedures. Oceania Cruises cannot confirm any special airline requests unless otherwise specified. Due to special fares used, frequent flyer or past traveler discounts may not apply to air tickets issued by Oceania Cruises. These special requests and services should be arranged by your Travel Agent directly with the airlines.

Independent Travel Arrangements Oceania Cruises has no responsibility with regard to air or land travel arrangements made by non-refundable, restricted travel or frequent flyer tickets. This exclusion of liability includes consequences to independently arranged air or land travel that may result from last minute changes in the embarkation or debarkation ports, and delays in arrival at any airport or port location. Please refer to the Guest Ticket/Contract for full terms and conditions of these exclusions.

Customary Emergency Room fees and charges do apply for medical services and are dictated by the services performed by the ship’s medical staff. Guests with any medical condition(s) or special needs that may require treatment or attention or accommodation during the voyage, or needing to travel with medical apparatus, including wheelchairs, motorized scooters, oxygen therapy, etc., must advise Oceania Cruises in writing at time of deposit.

Documentation and Visas Passport and Visa requirements, and regulations in regards to vaccination certificates and other health requirements vary by destination. It is the sole responsibility of each guest to obtain and have available the appropriate valid travel and health documents for their chosen itinerary. Any guest traveling without the proper documentation will not be allowed to board the vessel and no refund of cruise fare or any other travel components purchased from Oceania Cruises will be issued. Passports must be valid six months from the date of trip completion. Due to airline security measures, your passport name must match your airline ticket name or you may be denied boarding.

Oceania Cruises recommends that all guests visit the U.S. Department of State’s web site at http://travel.state.gov to obtain information concerning the status of any advisories or warnings issued to travelers for specific countries around the world. Cruise Documents All final cruise documents and other arrangements made by Oceania Cruises on behalf of the guest(s) will be sent to the designated travel agency or directly to the guest approximately 21 days prior to sail date.

For evening dining, elegant casual resort wear is suggested. We request that jeans, shorts, t-shirts or tennis shoes not be worn at dinner. Boarding Guests are required to be onboard the vessel at least two hours prior to the scheduled departure time.

Onboard Room Service For your convenience, complimentary room service is available 24 hours a day from our extensive room service menu. Valet and Laundry Facility Dry cleaning and laundry services are offered onboard. Both regular and express services are available at an additional fee. Smoking For the safety and security of all guests and staff onboard, Designated Smoking Areas are available on the forward starboard corner of the Pool Deck and in the aft, port corner of Horizons. These areas are comfortably furnished and conveniently located near food and beverage areas. Smoking is expressly forbidden in all Staterooms and Suites, on verandas, or in any areas of the ship other than officially Designated Smoking Areas. Smoking in a stateroom or suite or on a veranda represents a serious fire and safety hazard to all guests and staff. Guests choosing to disregard this policy

Alcohol Policy The sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages will be limited to guests aged 21 years or older.
