If you’ve always dreamed of an Oceania Cruise, but have been unable to find the time for one of our 10-, 12- or 14-day voyages, your ship has come in! Oceania Cruises’ guests will now have the chance to enjoy 7-day Mediterranean itineraries as early as the fall of 2011. Inspired by the strong response
we received to our new 7-day itineraries for 2012, we’ve created two week-long Saturday departures perfectly timed to experience the fall foliage of Tuscany and the French Riviera this autumn.
Tuscan Charms sails from Barcelona on October 29, 2011, to Rome, visiting Provence (Marseille), Monte Carlo, Portofino, Florence/Pisa/Tuscany (Livorno) and Sorrento/Capri en route. Two-for-one cruise fares start at $2,999 per guest, with free round-trip economy class air transportation. Guests will enjoy plenty of time to explore the amazing art and architecture of Italy, such as the Duomo in Florence pictured left, thanks to an overnight stay in Livorno. Besides offering the opportunity to explore the Tuscan countryside, the voyage offers the additional pleasure of a late evening departure from Monte Carlo (pictured below), so that guests can not only experience the scenic beauty of the yacht-strewn port but can also venture along the equally impressive coastline of the French Riviera and still enjoy an evening game of chance in the famous Grand Casino.
Italian Treasures, from Rome to Venice, departing November 5, 2011, calls at Amalfi/Positano, Taormina, Corfu, Bari and Dubrovnik. Guests enjoy an overnight onboard ship in Venice at the end of the cruise. Two-for-one cruise fares start at $2,799 per guest, with free round-trip economy class air transportation. This voyage also focuses on some of the classic destinations of Italy, while stopping into charming ports of call such as enticing Dubrovnik.
As both itineraries call on Rome, each offers the chance to see the fabled monuments of this iconic city and Vatican City as well, including St. Peter’s Basilica pictured below.
President Bob Binder pointed out, “These two cruises depart on Saturdays so that our working guests can enjoy a week in Europe. Fall is one of the best times to visit the destination because there are no crowds and the weather is pleasant.”
