Oceania Cruises’ world tour sells out in single day

Oceania Cruises has announced its 2023 ‘Around the World in 180 Days’ voyage sold out in a day.

This “clearly illustrates the enthusiasm that experienced travellers have for immersive and memorable travel experiences,” says Bob Binder, Oceania Cruises’ CEO. “Despite the challenges the world faces today, travellers are clearly bullish on the future and are embracing these new opportunities to travel the world and create lifelong memories.”

While world cruises typically attract legions of loyal repeat guests, Oceania Cruises’ 2023 world cruise saw more than one-third of all bookings come from first time, new-to-brand guests. This furthers a booking trend the brand has seen steadily emerging during the past year with some booking periods and promotions recording new-to-brand booking levels of close to 50%. Additionally, 20% of world cruise guests opted to extend their voyage up to a total of 218 days.

“The quick uptake from our loyal repeat guests and new first-time guests alike underscores the tremendous pent-up demand for immersive, destination-focused cruises and the strong allure of our acclaimed small-ship experience that features the finest cuisine at sea and an unmatched reputation for service from our warm and welcoming staff,” says Binder, clearly still in sales mode even though anyone with a spare £38K (min) is out of luck.

The sell-out cruise is expected to call at 96 ports in 33 countries across four continents. The voyage also includes three full days cruising in Antarctica and affords guests access to more than 60 UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
