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.
