Oceania Cruises makes company history with best booking day

After months without cruises, people are eager to get back on the water.

Miami-based Oceania Cruises recently saw company history with the launch of its itineraries for the 2022-2023 season on March 3—a launch that resulted in the most bookings made in a single day for the company.

The 18-year-old company’s Tropics and Exotics Collection includes 127 itineraries with destinations such as South America, New Zealand, Australia, Africa, Antarctica, the Caribbean and the South Pacific. The best-selling voyage is “a 35-day circumnavigation of Australia over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.”

“The tremendous wave of bookings we saw on the day we opened our new 2022 and 2023 itineraries for sale underscores the extraordinary demand for long and exotic cruise vacations,” said Bob Binder, president and CEO of Oceania, which is owned by Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. and has six ships. “Upscale travelers are eager to explore the world once more and are booking farther in advance to ensure their travel dreams are fulfilled.”

Weeks earlier, the company’s six-month-long world cruise sold out the first day it opened for sale, which the company says shows “robust demand for long, exotic cruise vacations with “Grand Voyages” ranging from several weeks to more than two months in length.” These types of cruises accounted for nearly a third of the March 3 bookings.

Oceania Cruises also says that the demand for 2022 Europe and North America cruises will drive the opening of the 2023 Europe and North America voyages in September.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
