Overnight Stays to Start Dreaming About

One of the most exciting parts of an Oceania world cruise is the opportunity to stay overnight at some amazing destinations. This once-in-a-lifetime cruise features spectacular overnight stays, giving you a chance to explore your ports of call more fully. 

In South America, two of the highlights include Buenos Aires, Argentina in February and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in March. In Buenos Aires, you can take in the culinary culture and visit the beautiful open-air museum El Caminito, while in Rio de Janeiro, you can plan for a visit up to the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue and take in the spectacular views.

In April, the cruise will be stopping at Mahe, Seychelles where you can relax on the splendid white sand beach or snorkel in the sparkling clear water. Later in April, your epic world adventure will visit Dubai, UAE, where you can marvel at the ultra-modern metropolis with some of the tallest buildings in the world and even ski down an indoor ski hill! At the end of the month, an overnight stop in Mumbai will give you the chance to explore the gorgeous temples of the city, as well as its many UNESCO World Heritage Sites. 

From there, the cruise heads to Bangkok, Thailand for a visit to the city's massive gold Buddha, followed by overnight stays in Bejing and Kyoto in June.

Shoreside Events and Overland Tours

Every Oceania world cruise offers an array of shoreside events designed by the cruise line's destination specialists to bring the local culture to life for the world explorers that are along for the exclusive journey.

During the 2023 sailing, the first shoreside event will be a lively cultural fair in Buenos Aires complete with tango lessons, a puppeteer show, and local gourmet food. In Cape Town, South Africa, travelers are offered a stunning winery tour and tasting complete with a live Marimba band, and, in Dubai, the mysteries of the Arabian desert will unfold before you with live Bediun performances and an exciting 4-wheel ride through the Dunes. You will also get to visit a stunning Burmese monastery and experience a candlelit dinner at a cave in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam.

For those who want to spend even more time ashore, the optional, multi-day overland tours provide an opportunity to delve deeper into the fantastic destinations. In January, travelers can opt to take a four-day Wild Wonders of the Galapagos tour to explore the marvels of the Galapagos Islands.

Other overland tours in South America include journeys to Machu Picchu, the ruins of Tambo Colorado, and the thundering Iguazu Falls. Later in your journey, you can choose to discover the Namib Desert, visit a private reserve in Zululand, and take a three-day Safari adventure in South Africa's Kruger National Park. Near the end of the cruise, you will also have the opportunity to visit giant pandas at a research facility in Xiamen, China.
