We have some exciting news to share. The parent company of Oceania Cruises, Prestige Cruises International, has agreed to be acquired by Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, Ltd., parent company of Norwegian Cruise Line.
This is a significant milestone and an achievement only made possible with the hard work and dedication of the entire Prestige Cruises International family, from the officers and crew onboard our ships to the staff and management team here in Miami.
For our loyal guests, you can rest assured that the Oceania Cruises experience you’ve come to love will remain unchanged. When we launched the business in 2003, we believed guests deserved more from their cruise vacation. What we created was a cruise experience that appealed to discerning travelers by offering the finest cuisine at sea, impeccable personal service and itineraries that explore many of the world’s iconic destinations. It was a formula for success, and along the way we developed a strong and loyal customer base, for which we are grateful.
With Norwegian Cruise Line, we’ve found a partner that shares a similar passion for going above-and-beyond to deliver exceptional guest experiences and we’re excited about starting this new chapter for our company.
When the transaction is complete later this year, it will bring together three great brands as part of one family. The combination will create a diversified cruise operator with a full spectrum of offerings that range from family cruising on Norwegian’s innovative Freestyle Cruising ships, to the country-club casual experience on Oceania’s fleet, to the all-inclusive, more intimate experience afforded by Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ luxury offering.
For the Oceania Cruises brand, our mission will be to preserve the distinct offerings, guest experiences and unique onboard culture our guests cherish, while always exploring ways to further enhance our upper premium experience.
Thanks for your continued interest in Oceania Cruises and we look forward to welcoming you onboard in the near future and for many years to come.
