Exploring a frozen wilderness in search of polar bears, immersing yourself in Europe’s culinary scene or chasing the sun in the tropics: there’s no limit to the immersive travel experiences available through cruising.
Whether you’re seeking a heart-stopping adventure or something a little more laidback, world-class cruise lines like Oceania Cruises deliver voyages for every kind of traveller on small, luxurious ships.
If you’re after the romance of European castles and palaces
Nothing captures the imagination quite like a journey packed with storybook villages, royal residences, ancient fortresses and perfectly manicured gardens. Oceania Cruises brings it to life with its 12-day Elegant Northern Europe voyage setting sail from Stockholm, Sweden, 9 July to 21 July, 2025.
On its way to Southampton in England, the cruise will pass through Tallinn in Estonia; Riga in Latvia; Visby and Karlskrona in Sweden; Copenhagen and Aarhus in Denmark; Oslo in Norway; Amsterdam in The Netherlands and Antwerp in Belgium. The 1200-guest Vista lifts the benchmark for luxury cruising with all-verandah accommodation and several firsts, including three new dining concepts curated by renowned French chef Jacques Pépin, including signature restaurants, Ember and Aquamar Kitchen, plus a bakery and a mixology program for cocktail connoisseurs.
Don’t miss the Royal Highlights of Copenhagen tour, taking in Christiansborg Palace or Rosenborg Palace and Tivoli Gardens (with an expertly crafted beverage onboard afterwards).

If you’re after the ultimate wildlife and wilderness experience
Pristine glacier-fed lakes, tranquil forest streams and river rapids teeming with salmon: opportunities to observe Alaska’s “Big Five” (bears, moose, caribou, dall sheep and wolves) abound on Oceania Cruises’ Majestic Alaska voyage, a nine-day sailing from Vancouver, Canada, to Seattle, United States, from 17 to 26 June 2025.
With its multitude of dining venues including six open-seating specialty restaurants, your vessel, the 1250-guest Riviera, was designed for a peerless culinary experience (don’t miss the Dom Pérignon degustation dinner, featuring six palate-piquing courses paired with three vintages of Dom Pérignon). The journey takes in the scenic ports of North American such as Ketchikan, Juneau, Haines, Wrangell and Victoria and offers opportunities to hike, fish and paddle – and who could go past watching bears teach their cubs to fish at Neets Bay?
If you’re after an experience luxuriating in the tropics
Escaping to Bora Bora’s sandy beaches are always a good idea and according to Oceania Cruises, so too are the idyllic island playgrounds of Moorea, Fakarava, Nuku Hiva, Rangiroa, and Raiatea – packaged across several 10-day Tahitian Legends sailings in 2025.
The Papeete, Tahiti, return cruises (between 26 January to 15 September) sail aboard two 670-capacity small ships; the neoclassical Nautica with its bold lines and ornate detailing and the casually elegant Regatta. Both vessels deliver a pool- and jacuzzi-side reprieve from those iconic black-sand beaches, clear lagoons and pearl farms but the ultimate way to capture French Polynesia’s beauty is by helicopter flight over Bora Bora.
If you’re after Mediterranean glitz and glamour
Sample Europe’s magical summers onboard a speedboat through the Cote d’Azur. Or maybe lounging by the beaches of Spain’s Orange Blossom Coast is more your speed? Oceania Cruises’ 10-day Mediterranean Awakening voyage presents the glitz and glamour of the Mediterranean’s “top hits” with a sailing from 17 June 2025 to 27 June 2025.
Departing Barcelona, Spain aboard Nautica, guests will take in Castellon, Ibiza, Menorca in Spain; Sete, Saint-Raphael, Bastia in France; Rome, Florence and Portofino in Italy before a spectacular finish in Monte Carlo in Monaco. Chef-led culinary experiences such as a paella cooking class are a key feature of this cruise but be sure not to miss a sun-soaked afternoon of wine tasting in the rolling hills of Italy’s Tuscany region.
If you’re after the autumn scenery of North America’s east coast
With pops of crimson, burnt orange and vibrant yellow, the quaint country villages and National Parks of North America’s east coast offer a striking invitation to explore during the autumn months.
Oceania Cruises’ 11-day Fall Tableau voyage from Montreal, Canada, to Boston, United States, delivers the best of Saguenay, Baie-Corneau, Sept-Iles, Havre Saint Pierre, Corner Brook, Sydney, Halifax, Saint John and Portland between 24 September and 5 October 2025.
Cruising aboard the 670-capacity Insignia, guests are invited to make the most of a lecture series that shares insights into the destinations visited. A daily onboard Teatime ritual will see tea and a four-tiered cart filled with finger sandwiches, scones and sinful desserts enjoyed as a string quartet plays. It’s a decadent experience that will set you up to tackle the rugged trails of Saguenay National Park.
