Oceania Cruises’ opening day for its 2024 Collection of voyages on May 5, 2022 ranks among the best single-day booking periods in the company’s history.
More than 350 voyages, ranging from seven to 82 days in length and spanning from October 2023 to December 2024, went on sale.
Howard Sherman, president & CEO of Oceania Cruises, said: “The 2024 Collection launch illustrates tremendous and continued strong demand for cruising in addition to highlighting the increased trend in planning travel further out, both for past guests and new-to-brand guests.”
Oceania Cruises continues to see strong demand from new-to-brand guests, with one-third of the bookings coming from first-time guests.
All of the bookings for 2023 and 2024 are new cash bookings with no dilution from Future Cruise Credits issued during the pandemic, and one-third of the total transactions included reservations for at least two voyages.
The cruise line’s 35-day circumnavigation of Australia departing December 21, 2023 proved to be the most in-demand voyage, with more than 60 per cent of capacity filled in one day.
All destinations saw strong bookings with Asia as the most popular, followed by the South America sailings and Northern Europe itineraries on the 1,238-guest Marina performing exceptionally well. Africa, South Pacific, Australia and New Zealand also showed strong demand.
