Oceania Cruises to Sail Riviera on Asia Cruises for 2023-2024 Season
Oceania Cruises, the leading culinary and destination-focused cruise line, has just announced that the newly rejuvenated Riviera will be sailing through Asia for the first time in the 2023-2024 season. The 1,238-guest vessel is a stylish way to explore some of the world's most breathtaking destinations in the region, with cultural immersion and gastronomic excellence at the heart of the travel experience.
Riviera will embark on her inaugural season in Asia, exploring exotic locales in Arabia, India, Myanmar, Vietnam, China, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, and the Philippines. With 25 unique voyages ranging from 10 to 82 days, Riviera will join Regatta and Nautica to expand the line's offerings in the South Pacific, offering more opportunities to visit destinations like New Zealand, Australia, and French Polynesia.
The addition of Riviera has nearly doubled the seasonal availability with 121 itineraries now available for booking across Riviera, Regatta, Insignia, and Nautica, solidifying Oceania Cruises' position as the leading destination-focused and culinary-focused cruise line in Asia. Frank A. Del Rio, the President of Oceania Cruises, says, "Riviera's rejuvenation has taken our luxurious product to new heights, and the expansion of our Exotics 2023-2024 season means that even more of our guests have the chance to explore one of the most intriguing corners of the world."
Riviera's Asian voyages offer imaginative cultural experiences and ancient treasures, from the Great Wall and Bangkok's Grand Palace to Ha Long Bay and Kyoto's temples and gardens. The bright neon streets of Hong Kong and Tokyo, along with sacred pagodas and temples, showcase the fascinating blend of the ancient and modern in the Far East. Guests will also have the chance to visit once-forbidden corners of Asia like Yangon and remote destinations like Ishigaki Island in Japan and Hue, a former Imperial city in Vietnam. These voyages immerse guests in the best of the iconic attractions but also leave room for the unexpected.
Riviera has undergone a complete rejuvenation, with all staterooms and suites featuring reimagined, luxurious furnishings, wood finishes, and designer accents that radiate Oceania Cruises' signature elegance. Some notable features include the largest standard staterooms afloat at 291 square feet, restyled bathrooms with Italian marble and bespoke fabrics, plush carpets and leather-covered armchairs in the public spaces, and elegantly restyled lounges, bars, and dining venues.
With voyages ranging from 10 to 82 days, Riviera will offer rich travel experiences in ports like Cochin, India; Yangon, Myanmar; Busan, South Korea; and Phuket and Bangkok in Thailand. Regatta and Nautica will also sail the South Pacific and French Polynesia for the first time in Oceania's history, with more than 20 voyages highlighting some of the most sought-after ports in the region, including Tahiti, Bora Bora, Moorea, Rangiroa, and Raiatea.
Frank A. Del Rio says, "Thanks to these spectacular itineraries, our guests can discover some of the most beautiful and remote destinations in the world in the most luxurious and immersive way possible – by sea." The breadth of travel experiences offered across the voyages of Oceania's beautifully appointed, elegant ships is truly unparalleled.
