Welcome to our first Cruise Brochure for summer 2012! Cruising has become one of the most significant phenomena of our times. It’s something that intrigues most people. Every year, more and more people discover the inclusive pleasures of a cruise holiday. More singles, families, couples, honeymooners, second honeymooners and groups of friends sail away on the holiday of their lives. In this brochure we have some of the most popular itineraries and ideas to help you make the most of your time at sea. With a choice from luxury yachts to super liners, we have something for you, however you choose to explore.

bON VOYAGE

A question that is often asked is, “What can I do on a ship”? The short answer is “Lots”! You can see a show, snooze lazily by the pool, swim, jog, shop, learn, dine indoors or out, casual or elegant. Explore a port or stay onboard. Meet new friends. Keep fit. Onboard facilities include babysitting, ballroom dancing, duty free shopping, movies, supervised children activities. Most ships are very modern and have internet too so you can stay connected!

Cruising is fabulous value for money. It’s a great way to celebrate a special event and is a safe travel experience. One of the best aspects of cruising is in knowing that even though you are going to visit different cities, once you have unpacked, you don’t need to pack until your last day. Remember, it’s up to you if you wish to get off a ship during a port docking. You might want to get off at every opportunity or instead choose to relax and enjoy the ships onboard facilities. There is a cruise that can satisfy everyone – families, singles, couples, groups, young and young at heart, sports lovers and more. Few other holiday experiences can make that claim.


Why cruise?

How to Book?

Did you know that according to a research by Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), cruises have the highest percentage of satisfied customers than any other holiday experience! There are plenty of holiday options available, but few can match the value of a cruise holiday. Consider, for one up-front price you get your stateroom, unique dining and entertainment on the ship, plus you are comfortably transported to a myriad of fantastic ports-of-call providing a different adventure every day. Match that up with a holiday at an all-inclusive resort or a hotel and cruising is the clear winner. You can ask us for pre- or post-cruise accommodations, as bundling your entire holiday together could enhance your savings. Let us help you navigate all the details of planning your cruise holiday. Next few pages are full of select itineraries easily accessible from the Arabian Gulf.

Please contact your Cruise Specialist to book your Cruise Vacations featured in this brochure. In order to process your request quicker, we need following information: • Name of the Ship and departure date • Accommodation type: Suite, Balcony or Ocean-View. • Guest Information: Full names (as it appears on the passport), date of birth, nationality and passport details. • Contact Details: Full postal address of all guests plus at least one contact telephone number. • Emergency Contact Details: The name and number of a person who can be contacted in the event of a holiday emergency. • Dinner Seating Preferences: Table size, time of sitting and whether you are travelling with another party. Special Requirements: Special dietary or medical requirements. • Mobility: Please make us aware of guests who are not fully mobile or who use wheelchairs at any time. • Special Occasions: Birthdays, Honeymoon or Anniversary or Family Get Together.

If you can afford a holiday, you can afford a cruise.

Deposit: A deposit is required at the time of confirmation. If booking within 90 days of departure, full payment is required.

In fact, you could save money by taking a cruise. Just to prove it, use the handy chart below to compare the cost of a cruise to a typical land-based holiday. Chances are, when you add it all up, you will probably get a lot more holiday from a cruise for a lot less money.

Final Payment: Cruise Lines must receive the balance of your fare as per the time frame given in the initial letter of offer or confirmation failing which Cruise lines reserve the right to resell the accommodation held in your name. This will also result in cancellation charges.

Alaska – The Great land The native Aleuts named it Alyeska – the “Great Land” – and from your first moment here, you will see why. It’s a place of epic drama, with soaring mountains, giant glaciers and dazzling wildlife. There were once Gold Rush towns and salmon-fishing villages. Today, ports like Ketchikan, Juneau, and Skagway retain much of their unique frontier charm.

In 1840, the mail ship Britannia laid the first foundation of Cunard’s enduring reputation for reliability. For early pioneers, the vast liners promised land and prosperity in the New World. As more guests began to cross the Atlantic, the Cunard name became a byword for peerless glamour. Their floating palaces were heralded as lavish destinations in their own right, every inch as famous as glamorous as the Hollywood legends and royal icons who graced their decks. Today, delightful certainties still distinguish every Cunard voyage, beginning wtih the White Star service which welcomes you onboard. Your comfortable, stylish accommodation is paired with a reserved table in a refined sea-view restaurant.

Boasting the finest cuisine at sea, exceptional personalised service, luxurious surroundings and extraordinary value, Oceania Cruises continues to set new standards for luxury cruising. Your World - Your Way

The Finest Cuisine at Sea

Oceania Cruises combines the sophisticated elegance of a private hotel with the flexibility and adventure of travelling at sea. With a fleet of mid-sized vessels, Oceania Cruises offers the chance to visit many of the world’s most exciting destinations, whilst retaining a consistent onboard environment of unstructured comfort and relaxation — likened to being akin to a ‘home from home’ by many guests.

Savour some of the finest cuisine at sea, served in up to six distinct gourmet restaurants. You can choose where you sit giving you chance to sit with friends old and new - all at no additional charge. The exquisite menus are the inspiration of renowned Master Chef Jacques Pepin, Oceania Cruises Executive Culinary Director, and each course stands as a masterpiece in his portfolio. Choices include authentic Italian dining in Toscana. The finest steaks, lobster and seafood in Polo Grill. Aromatic French cuisine in Jacques and striking Asian fusion dishes in Red Ginger, plus regular venues such as the Grand Dining Room, Terrace Cafe and Waves Grill.

Unrivalled Service Oceania Cruises boast an impressive guest to staff ratio, but it is more than sheer numbers that elevates their personalised service to the sublime. Every member of staff genuinely cares 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 their staff devotes their full and unwavering attention to fulfilling your needs.
