1st August 2016

 

Don’t be put off by expensive prices for balconies and above, you might actually be getting more for your money than you realise with Oceania Cruises.

Imagine waking up to a new destination almost every day, and being able to stand out on your own private balcony as you sail in to port. From Alaska to South America, the Caribbean to Africa, the views are guaranteed to be unforgettable. But there’s so much more to your balcony stateroom than just an incredible view.

Free Airfare

Fly for free? Yes please! Free airfare means you can enjoy stress-free flying, with the price of your flight already included in your cabin and the added bonus of having someone else book your flights for you. Most flights are from London, but you can fly from many regional airports for a small supplement, including Birmingham, Edinburgh, Manchester Newcastle, and many more.  Oceania Cruises free airfare is guaranteed, no matter how much airfares may increase between the day you book your cruise and the day you travel. 

Free Shipboard Credit

With free credit per person to spend onboard, you can use it however you wish. Whether it be treating yourself to a drink from their premium drinks selection, buying a unique souvenir from the onboard shopping boutiques, or embarking on an exciting shore excursion; the choice is yours.

Free Unlimited Internet

You can always stay connected at sea with wireless internet available throughout each of Oceania Cruises ships, including in all suites and staterooms. But, you’ll have access to unlimited internet that can be used on one device at a time, anywhere on the ship. Plus, if you stay in one of Oceania Cruises’ Vista, Oceania and Owner’s suite, a complimentary iPad® is provided for your use.

Free Shore Excursions

Shore excursions are a great way to get an insight into a ports culture, history and local delicacies. You’ll enjoy unlimited shore excursions throughout your cruise, choosing from a wide array of trips in each and every port you visit.  To avoid missing out on some incredible experiences, Oceania Cruises strongly recommend booking shore excursions prior to boarding the ship to ensure availability.

Free Beverage Package

The cost of drinks can certainly add up over the duration of your cruise, but with the free beverage package you can rest assured that you’ll not be spending a small fortune on drinks.  Guests with Oceania Cruises can enjoy unlimited soft drinks, bottled water, specialty coffees, teas and juices as standard, but when booking a balcony suite or above you’ll enjoy complimentary wine and beer during your evening meals. The perfect accompaniment to some of the Finest Cuisine at Sea™.

 

Onboard Marina

Becci from our Marketing team recently went onboard Oceania Marina for a tour of the ship.

"The ship's balcony staterooms and suites are simply beautiful. Spacious, yet intimate, the rooms are ideal for a relaxing retreat whilst you’re on your cruise – and with a great view! The staterooms with the Jacuzzis on the balcony would be ideal for watching the sunset while sipping on Champagne; absolute heaven. The standard balcony staterooms are luxurious, but I was blown away by the suites – especially the Grand Owners Suite."

Upgrade your experience with Oceania Cruises

27th July 2016

Updated August 2019

When choosing a cruise it is often best to take a moment to think about what kind of stateroom you would like to stay in, and what affect this will have on your holiday. Oceania Cruises give you a sense of staying in a country hotel at sea, paired with sophisticated elegance and a casual country club atmosphere. Every stateroom onboard features an exclusive Oceania Prestige Tranquillity Bed, consisting of a magnificent eleven inch mattress, down feather pillows, and duvets which are covered in the finest 1000-count Egyptian cotton, as well as this, the view from your room can really add to your cruising experience. Carry on reading to find out why we recommend staying in a Veranda stateroom or above when sailing with Oceania Cruises.

 

Largest Veranda Staterooms at Sea

With Marina and Riviera boasting 282-square foot Veranda Staterooms, Oceania have ensured that these rooms were designed with quality and not quantity in mind. If you are someone that loves to spend time outside on the public sun decks, lounges, and restaurants while taking in the fresh sea air, but would also like to indulge in a little private luxury from time to time, then having your own spacious balcony means you can do this without feeling cramped.

 

 

Furnished Private Veranda

A Veranda onboard an Oceania Cruises ship is intended to be used. Expect seating and a table to sit back and enjoy a drink as you overlook the ocean, or enjoy that extra special touch of private outside dining by making the most of room service. Go one step further by staying in a Concierge Level Veranda Stateroom or Suite, and cuddle up with a luxurious cashmere blanket - perfect for relaxing and getting cosy.

 

Incredible Views

One of the main benefits of booking a Veranda Stateroom is the view. It's not every day that you're able to wake up in a new place; imagine waking up and stepping onto your balcony, inhaling the fresh air as you start your day. Or imagine sitting on your balcony and watching the beautiful coastlines of new ports coming into view.

 

 

The Suite Life

If you really want to indulge in your cruise and make it the trip of a lifetime, then consider upgrading to a Suite with Oceania Cruises. Rivalling any five star hotels, lavish suites offer grandeur and spaciousness and a host of exclusive privileges, making the experience more than superb. Everything is taken care of and everything is intended to make you feel like a VIP, from priority embarkation, unlimited access to Canyon Ranch SpaClub® private Spa Terrace, a variety of Bvlgari amenities, and 24-hour Butler service. There is no better reason to upgrade.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
