On March 3, 2021, Oceania Cruises opened its 2022-2023 Tropics and Exotics Collection of itineraries for sale to the public. This collection of 127 itineraries ranges from seven to 77 days across all across the world including Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia & New Zealand, the Caribbean, South America, and the South Pacific.
The top-selling destinations were Asia, Africa, and South America. The Caribbean and Australia/New Zealand also produced strong results with the single bestselling voyage of all being a 35-day circumnavigation of Australia over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.
“The tremendous wave of bookings we saw on the day we opened our new 2022 and 2023 itineraries for sale underscores the extraordinary demand for long and exotic cruise vacations. Upscale travelers are eager to explore the world once more and are booking farther in advance to ensure their travel dreams are fulfilled,” stated Bob Binder, President & CEO of Oceania Cruises.
This latest booking record comes only weeks after Oceania Cruises sold out its epic six-month-long world cruise on the first day it opened for sale to the general public.
Travelers continue to drive robust demand for long, exotic cruise vacations with “Grand Voyages” ranging from several weeks to more than two months in length, accounting for almost one-third of the bookings taken on March 3, 2021.
Oceania Cruises has also seen exceptionally strong demand for its 2022 Europe and North America collection of cruises.
To satisfy demand from consumers and travel advisors who are booking farther in advance, the cruise line will be opening the spring, summer and fall 2023 Europe and North America cruises for sale beginning in September.
