Oceania Sets Single-Day Booking Record

Oceania Cruises set a single-day booking record March 4 when it opened the books on summer and fall 2016 itineraries, which includes the inaugural voyages by the Sirena.

Sirena, the sister ship to Oceania’s original three 684-passenger ships, will join the fleet on April 27, 2016. Currently operating as the Ocean Princess, it was purchased by parent company Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. in November and will undergo a $40 million refurbishment next March before joining the Oceania fleet. It will get an upgrade similar to the one completed on Insignia in May, which includes adding specialty restaurants Toscana and Polo Grill, as well as Baristas and the cook-to-order grill Terrace Café.

“With the addition of Sirena to the Oceania Cruises fleet we can expand the realm of possibilities and stretch our imagination when it comes to itinerary planning, providing our guests even more options,” said Oceania President and COO Jason Montague.

The summer/fall 2016 program includes 90 new itineraries, 50 of which are extended journeys, and 20 maiden calls.

Sirena’s inaugural season includes 10- to 14-day voyages throughout the Mediterranean, including two voyages venturing as far west as Seville and Lisbon. The ship will visit 11 new ports for Oceania, such as Gaeta, Italy; Golfito, Costa Rica; and La Paz, Mexico.
