announced its summer and fall itineraries for 2016, including the inaugural
season of the Oceania Sirena, which will begin with a 14-night Barcelona-to-Venice voyage on April 27, 2016.
Oceania said the ship, a former Renaissance
Cruises ship acquired from Princess Cruises, will sail a combination of classic
and new Mediterranean itineraries.
The addition of
Sirena gives the brand six ships, and allows it to offer 20 never-before-visited
ports next year. Some of the ports on the list include Ensenada and La Paz,
Mexico; Catalina Island, off California; Karlskrona, Sweden; Martha’s Vineyard
in Massachusetts, and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
In the Med,
Sirena will be joined by Riviera at the start of the summer season, after which
Riviera will transition to the Caribbean. Regatta will spend the summer in
Alaska, the fall on Canada/New England itineraries, and then go to South and
Marina will spend
the summer in Scandinavia, the Baltic and in the British Isles before heading
for South America. Insignia will do a 90-day Grand Voyage at the start of the
summer, move to South America in the fall and then sail in the Caribbean.
