Oceania returns to cruising with three additional ships
SYDNEY- Oceania Cruises, the world’s leading culinary- and destination-focused cruise line, announced that it will resume cruise operations with three additional ships, Riviera, Insignia, and Sirena, between October 2021 and January 2022.
Voyage itineraries for each ship will continue to be evaluated for port availability and may be adjusted as required closer to the sailing dates. These additional ship restarts follow 28 April announcement of the line’s Marina resuming cruise operations from Copenhagen beginning on 29 August, 2021.
Phased restart dates for Regatta and Nautica will be announced at a later date.
Guests to be vaccinated
All Oceania Cruises voyages, until further notice, will sail with the requirement that 100% of guests and crew be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to ensure the health and safety of all on board the ships as well as ashore in the communities visited.
The vaccination requirement is the cornerstone of the company’s robust health and safety program, which was developed with guidance from the company’s team of public health and scientific experts including the Healthy Sail Panel and the SailSAFE Global Health and Wellness Council.
These protocols are subject to continuous refinement as science and technology evolves.
