Sailing from Miami, Cartagena, New York, Los Angeles, Bridgetown, Panama and Papeete, this impeccable selection of carefully crafted voyages aboard Marina, Nautica, Sirena and Oceania Cruises’ new ship, Vista, is ideal for travellers who dream of sojourns in tropical archipelagos and who wish to explore colonial cities and soak up the laid-back, island atmosphere. Voyages range from seven to 16 days, sailing to iconic Caribbean destinations including Bridgetown, Cartagena, Gustavia, Puntarenas, San Juan and St. John’s. Many of these voyages feature memorable daylight passages through the Panama Canal, linking sought-after Caribbean destinations with storied Pacific Riviera ports such as Acapulco, Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Quetzal.

With more than 60 immersive ports of call, Oceania Cruises’ carefully planned itineraries invite travellers to experience blissful escapes on delightfully less-travelled islands with the cruise line’s smaller ships able to access boutique ports and yacht harbours in destinations such as Moorea, Raiatea and Rangiroa in French Polynesia, and Barbuda, Dominica and the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean.

Sailing with Oceania Cruises is the most relaxing way to visit French Polynesia – an exotic utopia and haven of idyllic beauty and tranquillity. From Tahiti and Bora Bora to the sapphire seas of Moorea, the line’s South Pacific sojourns cover some of the most remote and gorgeous islands in the world, filled with blue lagoons, coral atolls and lingering sunsets. Carrying fewer than 700 guests, Nautica provides an intimate experience for travellers to explore the region, with 10-day itineraries designed to offer a unique flavour of this South Pacific jewel.

Coveted Caribbean attractions including St. Lucia’s Pitons, Antigua’s stunning choice of 365 white sand beaches, the blue cobblestone streets of Old San Juan and ancient sacred ruins like Chacchoben and Kohunlich from Costa Maya are on offer. Enjoy a daylight journey through the Panama Canal and visit some of Central America’s most enticing destinations.
