As we return from an extended hiatus from travel, we’re seeing a surge in demand for luxury cruising from loyal repeat guests who can’t wait to set sail again, as well as those keen to experience the luxury life afloat for the first time.

This is no more evident than with our new ship Vista, whose all-time single day booking record surpassed our closest booking day record by nearly 60%, highlighting the strong desire of Australian guests to explore the world once more, and to do so on ships that offer longer journeys, immersive itineraries and plenty of personal space on board.

A marvel in the making, Vista features 12 indulgent dining venues – four of which will be exclusive to Vista – together with all-veranda accommodations, a new category of stateroom dedicated to solo travellers, a grand pool deck and luxurious spa, and two staff members for every three guests.

Looking to 2022 and beyond, we’re looking forward to having our entire fleet sailing once more. Nautica will be the last to return to sail in April after emerging from a three-month drydock, marking the completion of our US$100 million re-inspiration of our four 684-guest Regatta Class ships, under the OceaniaNEXT programme.

During the pause in sailing, we continued to invest in evolving the onboard experience and can’t wait to show off the sweeping array of dramatic enhancements to guests in 2022. From dozens of enrichments to our already renowned The Finest Cuisine at Sea® – including a raft of innovative new dishes at Toscana, Sunday Brunch in the Grand Dining Room and a prepared-to-order poke bowl station – to stunning updates to our public spaces and an increase in staff to guarantee a new level of personalised attention, our onboard experience is now more decadent than ever.

We look forward to welcoming you back on board soon!
