Best New Ports of Call
Beginning in 2021, Oceania Cruises' Tropics and Exotics collection of itineraries boasts 10 new ports of call. Here are a few of the highlights.
Îles des Saintes, Guadeloupe
Îles des Saintes is comprised of eight undeveloped islands off the coast of Guadeloupe, only two of which are inhabited. These unspoiled islands offer visitors a glimpse of the Caribbean that can be hard to find.
Largely undeveloped and free of sprawling resort complexes and chain restaurants, Îles des Saintes is the perfect place to go when you want to truly unplug.
You could happily spend a day with your toes in the sand and a book in your hand, but those who prefer to stay active can opt for a hike, a dive, or just a stroll down the cobblestone streets of Borg, a small village that overlooks the Les Saintes Bay, which has been recognized by UNESCO as one of the most beautiful bays in the world.
If unspoiled and minimally populated destinations appeal to you, but you'd prefer snow to sand, you'll be thrilled that Oceania has added Whittier, Alaska to its list of ports of call.
Once a stop on the portage route of the Chugach people and later part of the route covered by prospectors during the Klondike Gold Rush, Whittier became a secret military outpost during World War II.
Today it is home to just over 200 people, making it the ideal destination for those who want to experience the unspoiled natural beauty of Alaska.
From the towering glaciers and imposing coastal mountains you'll see as you cruise to port, to the charming 2.5-mile train ride you'll take into the town of Whittier, this promises to be a port to remember.
Port Arthur (Tasmania), Australia
Once a convict settlement, Port Arthur is now one of Australia's most significant UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Today, the prison buildings have been converted to museums, and visitors from around the world come to learn about the peninsula's dark history and to appreciate it's striking natural beauty.
The waterfalls that tumble over 1,000 foot cliffs into the Tasman Sea once kept prisoners from escaping, but today they welcome travelers who are eager to come ashore.
Mystery Island, Vanuatu
A day spent exploring Mystery Island is a chance to indulge your Swiss Family Robinson fantasies. This uninhabited island has no electricity, roads, or telephone lines, giving you the opportunity to explore a deserted island, safe in the knowledge that all the conveniences and luxuries of modern life are just a few minutes away aboard ship.
You can give yourself a tour of this tiny island in about 30 minutes, but you'll want to make sure to save some time to snorkel in the protected marine sanctuary that surrounds this slice of paradise.
Panama City, Panama
There is so much more to Panama than its most famous attraction, and a stop in the port of Panama City allows you to both marvel at the iconic canal and immerse yourself in the Panama's rich culture.
The city is located at the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal and watching the Miraflores Locks in action is something every visitor to the area should do. It's just not all you should do.
Panama City was founded in 1519, making it the oldest continuously inhabited European settlement on the Pacific coast, and visitors should be sure to explore the historic town center, which was dedicated as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2003.
In addition to the new ports of call, Oceania has added 75 new itineraries for a total of 105 incredible cruise adventures. From seven-day cruises form Lisbon to Barcelona to 71-day explorations of the Caribbean, 2021 Oceania cruise itineraries offers something for everyone.

Perhaps the most iconic cruise destination in the world, the Caribbean offers the crystal-clear waters, gently swaying palms, and tropical breezes that many people associate with cruise vacations.
That is, of course, not all there is to do in the Caribbean.
