"Incredibly, last year our 2023 world cruise sold out in just one day, so for 2024 we are providing guests more extended voyage options to deeply and meaningfully rediscover the world," said Howard Sherman, President and CEO of Oceania Cruises. "While a globe-circling journey is the pinnacle of life-changing travel experiences, we have specially curated a set of Grand Voyages for seasoned and time-rich travellers to navigate storied seas, straits and oceans that boldly connect diverse and exotic corners of the globe."
While world cruises typically attract legions of loyal repeat guests, Oceania Cruises' 2024 world cruise saw almost half of all bookings come from first-time, new-to-brand guests, and 42% of the guests sailing on the current 2022 Around the World voyage rebooked for the 2024 voyage.#THE S MEDIA #Media Milenial #Bali #Komodo Island #Oceania Cruises
