OCEANIA CRUISES REVEALS EXOTIC EXPLORATIONS IN ASIA WITH NEWLY RE-INSPIRED RIVIERA
Better than new, Riviera will stun in Asia by charting her inaugural season in the region, sailing through Arabia, India, Myanmar, Vietnam, China, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines. Her new season brings 25 unique voyages ranging from 10 to 82 days. Additionally, Regatta and Nautica will greatly expand the line’s offerings in the exotic South Pacific, with more opportunities to explore sought-after destinations like New Zealand, Australia and French Polynesia than ever before.
The new sailings have nearly doubled the seasonal availability with 121 itineraries available for bookings across Riviera, Regatta, Insignia and Nautica, cementing Oceania Cruises’ position as the leading destination- and culinary-focused cruise line sailing in Asia.
The announcement of Riviera comes after an unprecedented year in luxury cruising with sales exceeding expectations, breaking numerous records.
“Riviera’s re-inspiration has brought our luxurious product to new heights and the expansion of our Exotics 2023-2024 season means even more of our guests have the opportunity to explore one of the most intriguing corners of the globe,” said Frank A. Del Rio, President of Oceania Cruises.
“The decision to move Riviera to Asia was easy; demand for our Exotics collection is very strong with our well-travelled guests longing to visit remote, wondrous destinations for off-the-beaten-path experiences. Having Riviera sail this corner of the world, showcasing her new stem-to-stern, better-than-new interiors, is the most stylish, luxurious and relaxing way to explore multiple fascinating cultures while enjoying The Finest Cuisine at Sea on one voyage.”
Riviera’s Asia cruises bring imaginative cultural encounters, ancient treasures and so much more. From the Great Wall and Bangkok’s Grand Palace to the ethereal seascape of Ha Long Bay and Kyoto’s temples and gardens, the sights and landscapes of Asia fill with wonder. The futuristic neon-lit buzzing streets of Hong Kong and Tokyo beguile, along with sacred pagodas and temples, highlighting the Far East’s intriguing blend of the ancient and modern.
Guests will also have the chance to explore once-forbidden corners of Asia such as Yangon and more off-the-beaten-path locations like the remote island of Ishigaki in Japan and Hue, a former Imperial city situated on Vietnam’s Perfume River. These captivating voyages immerse guests in the best of the iconic attractions of this vast continent but also leave room for the discovery of the unexpected.
