Oceania Introduce Pre-Book & Save Excursions

Oceania Cruises is introducing more than 1,000 new tours and excursion packages that allow guests to custom-design their destination experience and enjoy significant savings. This product enhancement is in addition to previously announced new beverage packages. Both constitute the third phase of the line’s ongoing Pillars of Distinction initiative.

 3 new ways to explore

Commencing with the 2012 European season, Oceania will offer three distinct sightseeing options and more than 1,000 new excursions worldwide, many designed for the traveller who may be experiencing ports for the second or third time. In each case, guests enjoy substantial savings by booking prior to the sail date. Package highlights include:

· A la Carte – As before, individual shore excursions can be purchased in advance or onboard the ship. However, starting with the 2012 Europe season, guests who book excursions prior to sailing will enjoy 10 per cent off on-board prices.

· `Your World’ Collection – This option offers guests the flexibility to select a combination of excursions that most appeals to them and save 25 per cent off on-board prices. The minimum number of excursions per package varies based on the number of ports on the itinerary. For example, on a voyage with eight ports, the minimum is five excursions.

· Unlimited Passport Collection – Designed for travellers who wish to fully experience
a destination in depth, this package offers unlimited shore excursions throughout the voyage – a saving of up to 40 per cent.
Guests pay a set fee for the entire cruise and will be able to book an unlimited number of excursions. Package prices will vary based on the number of ports on the itinerary. For example, the package price for a cruise with seven ports is $699 per person. As an added bonus, guests who purchase the Unlimited Passport Collection also receive discounts on limited-availability tours.
