Specialty cruise company Oceania Cruises announced the 2024 Around the World in 180 Days voyage itinerary aboard Insignia.
The six-month long world cruise will see the luxurious Insignia grace 34 countries and 96 vibrant destinations such as the Polynesian islands, New Zealand and Australia and a host of Europe’s travel-won yet iconic cities.
“Incredibly, last year our 2023 world cruise sold out in just one day, so for 2024 we are providing guests more extended voyage options to deeply and meaningfully rediscover the world,” said Howard Sherman, President and CEO of Oceania Cruises.
In conjunction with the world cruise, the company also launched four new 72 to 82 day Grand Voyages in the Asia-Pacific region aboard Regatta, Nautica, and Riviera.
Grand Voyages for time-rich travelers
While a globe-circling journey is the pinnacle of life-changing travel experiences, the company has specially curated a set of Grand Voyages, which according to Sherman, are for seasoned and time-rich travelers to navigate storied seas, straits and oceans that boldly connect diverse and exotic corners of the globe.
While the epic ‘Around the World in 180 Days’ will see 684 guests experience over 100 UNESCO World Heritage sites across 96 destinations, with 24 overnight stays and a series of curated complimentary special onshore events – with $47,099 starting prize per person – the Grand Voyages start from $16,799 to $23,299 per person.
Featuring extended evening port stays, along with meaningful excursions ashore that connect guests to the place, culture and people visited, the four Grand Voyages are as follows:
