Oceania Offers New, Customizable Shore Tours and Packages

Oceania Cruises is introducing more than 1,000 new tours and excursion packages that allow guests to custom design their destination experience, sometimes at a savings. The new tours are part of the third phase of the Pillars of Distinction initiative, as are the recently announced beverage packages.

Beginning with the 2012 Europe season, Oceania is offering three sightseeing options and more than 1,000 new excursions -- many of which were designed for the traveler visiting ports for the second or third time.

Individual shore excursions can be purchased in advance or onboard the ship. However, starting with this year’s Europe cruises, guests who book excursions prior to sailing will enjoy 10 percent off on-board prices.

The “Your World Collection” lets guests book a combination of excursions and save 25 percent off onboard prices. The minimum number of excursions per package varies based on the number of ports on the itinerary. For example, on a voyage with eight ports, the minimum is five excursions.

Designed for travelers who wish to fully experience a destination in depth, the “Unlimited Passport Collection” package offers unlimited shore excursions throughout the voyage at a savings of up to 40 percent. Guests who pay a set fee for the entire cruise can book an unlimited number of excursions. Package prices vary based on the number of ports on the itinerary. For example, the package price for a cruise with seven ports is $699 per person. As an added bonus, guests who purchase the “Unlimited Passport Collection” also receive discounts on limited-availability tours.

Guests in suites and concierge-level staterooms receive a 60-day advance priority booking period. Travelers who purchase either the “Your World” or “Unlimited Passport” collections receive priority confirmation of their selections. This benefit is appealing to those who wish to ensure they have a place reserved on the most popular tours in marquee cities such as Venice, Rome, St. Petersburg and Istanbul.

All excursion packages are fully refundable until sail date and must be purchased in advance for maximum savings. Packages will be non-refundable thereafter. A la carte tours will remain fully refundable up until 36 hours before the excursion.
