WOO HOO! Oceania Cruises launches series of virtual AND in-person events

Oceania Cruises has relaunched its ‘Agent Bring Client’ (ABC) event series and a series of exclusive high teas.

The high tea experience is designed to showcase the cruise line’s onboard experience, with the first event held at the Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove on the Gold Coast, hosted by James Sitters, business development manager for Oceania Cruises in Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory.

Attended by O Club members and their guests, attendees enjoyed luxe refreshments with champagne, while taking a deep-dive into Oceania Cruises’ unique offering and curated travel experiences.

“Our first high tea was a huge success and provided a welcome opportunity to personally reconnect with our loyal guests after seven long months – all while social distancing,” Sitters said.

“Whether it be in person or virtually, we can’t wait to roll out the remaining events across Australia and New Zealand.”

Guests attending high teas virtually won’t miss out, with specially curated High-Tea-in-a-Box packages – featuring a selection of sweet and savoury pastries, scones with jam, champagne and tea – delivered straight to their doorstep or office on the day of their event.

Attendees at Oceania Cruises’ ABC events in November and December will be among the first to learn about the cruise line’s new sailings and destinations in the new 2022 Europe and North America Collection, which launches for booking on 12 November 2020.

The 2022 sailings have been released for preview, prior to booking date, featuring 11 itineraries, 76 new offerings and 10 new ports.

You can view the trips online or via the comprehensive season preview brochure.

See below full schedule of ABC events and locations (2pm-4pm and 6pm-8pm sessions available):

Brisbane – Thursday, 12 November, The Greek Club

Sydney – Tuesday 24 November, Cruise Bar

Canberra – Tuesday, 1 December, Hotel Realm
