Oceania Cruises has introduced pre-paid gratuities on all UK & Ireland bookings in order to make prices clearer for both guests and trade partners.

The move builds on the line’s new simply MORE value promise, which was launched in June last year, including more in the upfront cost of voyages.

The cruise line is also ringing in the New Year by offering savings of up to 50% off per stateroom on a vast array of destination-immersive voyages.

This offer is available on 112 sailings in 2024 and 2025 for bookings made now through February 29, 2024.

The New Year Sale features itineraries in the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand, Alaska, Canada and New England, and South America, ranging from seven to 32 days in length.

The new year savings include Oceania Cruises’ already generous simply MORE value promise, with virtually everything guests desire included in their voyage fare:

  • Free roundtrip airfare and airport transfers
  • A shore excursion credit of up to $1,400 per stateroom (credit varies by voyage length)
  • Complimentary vintage Champagnes, premium wines and international beers during lunch and dinner in onboard restaurants
  • Unlimited WiFi; and free gourmet specialty dining.

Jason Worth, Vice President of International Sales said:

“We are delighted to bring pre-paid gratuities to the UK market and believe it represents a huge opportunity for our valued trade partners.

“We understand the popularity of more inclusive pricing as guests like to know the upfront cost of their holiday as far as possible.

“Following the success seen from the introduction of simply MORE this summer, we wanted to elevate our offering even further.”

Frank A. Del Rio, President of Oceania Cruises said:

“We’re excited to welcome travelers aboard in 2024 and 2025 to savor immersive small ship luxury for less with our enticing new year savings.

“Oceania Cruises is a cruise line founded by foodies, run by foodies, for foodies, and as we sail into the new year, we look forward to continuing to provide destination-focused voyages with exquisite culinary experiences at their heart.”
