    Oceania Cruises has announced it will offer guests a free pre-cruise hotel stay on a range of sailings throughout late 2024 and 2025.

    Commencing 2 April 2024, the new offer means that curious travellers will be able to arrive the day before their cruise embarkation and the opportunity to delve even further into the departure port on their itinerary.

    This offer is available on 33 destination-immersive sailings exploring far-flung locations such as Brazil, the Canary Islands, Japan, Singapore, Bali, and New Zealand on destination-rich itineraries ranging from 11-day explorations to an expansive voyage of 35 days.

    The offer is available for reservations made between 2 April 2024 and 31 May 2024.

    “This exclusive free pre-cruise hotel stay gives our guests the opportunity to start their journey even more relaxed and experience some of the world’s great cities in a deeper and more authentic way,” commented Frank A. Del Rio, president of Oceania Cruises. “We know that our guests revel in immersing themselves in the local lifestyle, and our destination-focused approach makes spending more time in enriching cultures, experiencing mouthwatering cuisines, and embracing iconic cities even easier for our valued guests.”

    Available on more than 30 voyages, the offer extends across itineraries exploring Asia, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, the South Pacific, South America, and beyond.
