– Epic six-month voyage is the ultimate global exploration –
Oceania Cruises, the world’s leading culinary- and destination-focused cruise line, will open sales for its epic 2022 Around The World In 180 Days voyage on the 16th January 2020.
A globe-circling journey is the pinnacle of sought-after travel experiences, and this 2022 Around the World journey weaves together diverse and compelling destinations in the South Pacific, New Zealand, Australia, Asia, Africa and Northern Europe into a brilliant wayfaring masterpiece.
“This is one of the most intriguing and all-encompassing world explorations available. Guests will experience a truly unique combination of destinations that includes the South Pacific, Asia, India, and even the British Isles,” stated Bob Binder, President & CEO of Oceania Cruises. “I think guests will be most delighted by the 12-day, nine-port immersion into Japan as well as the lesser known cultural jewels of western Africa.”
Charting an intriguing westward route, Insignia sails across the Pacific to gorgeous Hawaiian Islands, the dreamy lagoons of French Polynesia and faraway Fijian enclaves. She continues charting her course south towards the dramatic fjords and rugged coasts of New Zealand followed by an extensive exploration of Australia, granting travellers ample time to discover the famed reefs, iconic cities and indigenous cultures of both countries. Navigating the most intriguing corners of Asia, guests will have the chance to immerse themselves in everything from the sought-after spiritual haven of Bali and Kyoto’s mystical bamboo forests, to the stunning juxtaposition of new and ancient in cities such as Hong Kong, Shanghai and Yangon. More adventures await at African game reserves, the acclaimed vineyards dotting the Cape Winelands, the otherworldly volcanic landscapes of the Canary Islands and the Golden Age canals of Amsterdam.
