For a limited time, take advantage of a three-day land extension before or after your Oceania Cruises voyage for no additional cost

If you’ve ever stepped off a ship at the end of a cruise and wished it could just continue for a couple more days, please, pretty please, then listen up! Oceania Cruises will make your dream come true and soften your transition back to land with a brand new (and limited-time) free land programme.

Oceania Cruises
is offering spectacular pre- or post-cruise add-ons for no additional cost, giving you the chance to extend your cruise adventure deeper into the destination.

For the same price as just the cruise alone, Oceania Cruises has curated a range of 24 land-based extensions, which include airport and hotel transfers as well as carefully selected accommodation in premium hotels.

The line is well-known for delivering guests closer to the soul of the destination thanks to their small-size ships, which are able to go to a wider variety of ports than larger-sized fleets. And with destination intensive itineraries ranging from one-week to half-a-year, there’s an Oceania Cruises' voyage for every type of maritime explorer.

A novel kind of ‘surf and turf’
While Oceania Cruises’ long days (and even overnight stays) in port are an excellent way of showcasing a destination, there’s always something extra that you could see… if only you just had a little more time.

Well, with the time-limited land programmes, you’ll have the luxury of spending a further three days in one of the line’s selected destinations for no additional cost.

Three additional days could cost you up to £4,159 per stateroom, but don’t worry about that – you won’t even have to open your wallet. What a rare treat!

Frank A. Del Rio, President of Oceania Cruises explains, “our land programmes are meant to deepen our guests’ experience by introducing them to the cultural and culinary discoveries, breath-taking landscapes, wildlife encounters and architectural awes of some of the world’s most faraway corners.”

How wonderful to enjoy all of that as a complimentary bonus with your cruise!
