Oceania Cruises Plans Events to Celebrate 10th Anniversary

Oceania Cruises, which marked its 10th anniversary on Jan. 6, has planned a year of special events, including several cruises hosted by top executives. Oceania was founded in 2003 by cruise industry veterans Frank Del Rio, Bob Binder and Joe Watters with a mission to deliver “destination-rich itineraries, best-in-class cuisine, an inviting country club atmosphere, and luxurious accommodations, all at an extraordinary value.”

The company started sailing with Regatta in 2003, adding Insignia in 2004 and Nautica in 2005, and then introducing new-builds Marina in 2011 and Riviera in 2012.

“Celebrating the 10th anniversary of Oceania Cruises is an achievement made possible by the loyalty of our guests, employees, crew and travel partners,” said Frank Del Rio, chairman and CEO of parent company Prestige Cruise Holdings. “Because of their support, the next 10 years -- and beyond -- are filled with just as much promise and opportunity to continue to evolve the Oceania Cruises experience and the modern cruise vacation for our guests.”

Four special “Anniversary Sailings” will feature a company executive who will host a cocktail reception, caviar brunch and gala dinner with complimentary private label 10th anniversary wine.

Binder, vice chairman of Prestige Cruise Holdings, will sail on Marina’s 14-day “Scandinavian Serenade” cruise departing London on June 11 and sailing to Stockholm. Riviera’s July 3 “Italian Escapade” will feature Oceania President Kunal Kamlani. The 10-day cruise sails from Rome to Venice. Del Rio will sail on Regatta’s seven-day Alaska cruise sailing roundtrip July 5 from Seattle. And Watters will be aboard Nautica’s 10-day voyage from Barcelona to Athens departing Sept. 6.

Throughout the year, Oceania fans will find profiles of crew members who will also pass the 10-year mark with the company on the line’s Facebook page. Nearly 100 crew members are reaching this milestone. Past guests also will be invited to share pictures and memories from sailings over the past 10 years on the guest book on the Facebook page.
