Explore the World with Oceania Cruises

Posted September 9th, 2014

One of travels most time-honoured is circumnavigating the world by sea, where you can explore off-the-beaten-path locations, visit some of the world's most iconic sites, delve deep into diverse cultures and uncover the treasures of the world - all from the comfort of your floating resort. A world cruise is right up there in terms of the ultimate travel experience, and is growing in popularity with each passing year.

This year, Oceania Cruises joined the list of cruise lines offering a world cruise voyage, and it has proved so popular that they have now launched their 2016 itinerary - "Around the World in 180 Days - 2016". This dream-come true cruise is the newest voyage in their series of world exploration cruises, and will visit 5 continents, 45 countries and 57 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. It will traverse over 47,068 nautical miles, visit 45 different islands, pass the equator 6 times, dock in 19 national capitals and cross all 24 time zones.

Departing from Miami on 4 January 2016, onboard Oceania's Insignia, highlights of this itinerary include the Caribbean, South America, Africa, Asia, the South Pacific, the Great Barrier Reef, Hawaii and the Panama Canal. With 92 ports of call and 14 overnight stays, this globe-circling adventure gives you the time to explore, experience and savour each and every moment.

You will enjoy overnight stays in Cape Town, Singapore, Saigon, Bangkok, Rangoon, Beijing, Hong Kong and more. And, among the 57 UNESCO World Heritage sites you visit, some of the highlights are the Great Barrier Reef, the Great Wall of China, Komodo National Park, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial, the Island of Mozambique, Robben Island and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

As part of your cruise fare, you will enjoy exclusive Shoreside Events, such as a tour and lunch at the Great Wall of China, a Royal Balinese Temple Feast, and a 1940's Patriotic Evening aboard Battleship Misouri.

When putting this cruise itinerary together, Oceania Cruises wanted to capture the essence of travel and exploration, and "Around the World in 180 Days - 2016" embodies the ultimate passion for exotic travel, diversity and discovery. It's your opportunity to travel like a true explorer, embark upon a journey and delve deeply into the world around you.
