Oceania Cruises' new ship, Sirena, debuts next year in the Mediterranean with a series of 10- to 14-day itineraries including the maiden call for the line to Gaeta, Italy.
Other new call ports in 2016 include stops in Triestre (Italy), Catalina Island (California) and Martha's Vineyard (Massachusetts). In total, during the summer and fall of 2016, Oceania Cruises’ ships will visit more than 240 ports in 70 countries.
Oceania Sirena is expected to launch April 27, 2016. The new ship will bump the luxury line's fleet to six vessels, and will expand its itineraries to 90 with 20 ports of call not previously visited by Oceania.
The maiden voyage of Sirena will be a 14-day cruise to Venice (Italy) from Barcelona (Spain), followed by 10- to 14-day sailings through the Mediterranean with Lisbon and Seville as highlights. Among the various ports of call, the inaugural season of Oceania Sirena will include maiden stops in the rain forest region of Golfito (Costa Rica) and La Paz (Mexico).
Before repositioning to South America, Oceania Marina will sail to Northern Europe for 2016 summer and fall season. Oceania Riviera will ply the waters of the Mediterranean and then head to Central America and the Caribbean. Oceania Regatta guests can explore Alaska as well as the Northeast coast. The conclusion of ship’s 2016 program is a 23-day cruise along the Amazon River. Oceania Insignia starts with a new, 90-day Grand Voyage to Montreal from Miami FL, and will then sail to South America and the Caribbean, with a maiden stop in Punta Cana (Dominican Republic). Nautica will visit Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, Asia and will close out the season with a 15-day voyage along Africa’s southern coast.
After an extensive “bow-to-stern” refurbishment, Oceania Sirena (former Ocean Princess) will emerge with “style Oceania guests love”, including the specialty dining restaurants Polo Grill and Toscana, along with the recent additions to Oceania’s fleet such as Baristas and Terrace Café cook-to-order grill.
