Oceania Cruises unveiled its winter schedule for 2015-16, listing Jeju, South Korea, and Luderitz, Namibia, among the dozen destinations it will be calling on for the first time.

Itineraries for the upper-premium line are focused on Asia, Australia and the South Pacific, so many of the new ports are clustered in those regions.

Other ports never visited before by Oceania’s five ships include Eden, Norfolk Island, Cooktown and Newcastle, in Australia; Gisborne in New Zealand; and Sanya, China.

Some of the new destinations will be pioneered by Insignia, which will again offer a 180-day world cruise, departing Jan. 4, 2016, from Miami.

Nautica will sail in Asia and South Africa, while Marina will open the season in South America before moving on to the South Pacific and Australia.

Regatta will split time between North, Central and South America, while Riviera will specialize in the Caribbean.

Twenty seven of the 42 itineraries offered next winter are new to Oceania, the line said.
