Passionate traveler and Oceania Cruises guest Isabel G. shares some of her most memorable travel experiences, plus where she’s dreaming of next.
As a passionate traveler I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to see many parts of the world. Some places were harder to travel to than others and some cultures were more unique and surprising. Throughout the years, I’ve learned that one of my favorite ways to visit some of the farthest corners of the world is aboard a small ship – with Oceania Cruises.

Whether you’re a seasoned traveler to Africa, or this is a dream you’ve long been waiting to realize, we invite you to immerse yourself in an authentic safari experience on one of Oceania Cruises’ thrilling tours. Highlighted below are just a few of our professionally-guided safari tours, available on a range of voyages aside from those listed.
