Oceania canceled all voyages on its Marina ship for January & February that were scheduled to set sail from South America.
The impacted cruises are January 8, January 28, February 14, and February 26.
Oceania said the decision had been due to “onerous and prohibitive travel restrictions” in Argentina related to COVID.
The cancellations affected a total of 7 itineraries with departures on:
- Jan 8 (20-days from Buenos Aires Argentina to San Antonio Chile)
- Jan 28 (17-days from San Antonio to Buenos Aires)
- Jan 28 (29-days from San Antonio to Rio de Janeiro Brazil)
- Jan 28 (50-days from San Antonio to Miami Florida USA)
- Feb 14 (12-days from Buenos Aires to Rio de Janeiro)
- Feb 14 (33-days from Buenos Aires to Miami)
- Feb 26 (21-days from Rio de Janeiro to Miami)
In a note to all booked the company said:
"Complying with the evolving testing, health, and entry requirements for Argentina and Chile has presented a significant challenge and at this juncture, with the introduction of new and prohibitive entry restrictions, we can no longer be assured of clear passage for our guests and crew.
"All Oceania passengers will automatically receive a full refund of the cruise fare paid back to the form of original payment."
