The demand for long, exotic cruise holidays is high, with March 3rd resulting in a record day for Oceania Cruises, with the most bookings taken in a single day in the company’s 18-year history.
On March 3, 2021, Oceania Cruises opened its 2022-2023 Tropics and Exotics Collection of itineraries for sale to the public.
This collection of 127 itineraries ranges from 7 to 77 days across Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia & New Zealand, the Caribbean, South America, and the South Pacific.
The top-selling destinations were Asia, Africa, and South America. The Caribbean and Australia/New Zealand also produced strong results with the single bestselling voyage of all being a 35-day circumnavigation of Australia over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.
Best day ever
“The tremendous wave of bookings we saw on the day we opened our new 2022 and 2023 itineraries for sale underscores the extraordinary demand for long and exotic cruise vacations,” stated Bob Binder, President & CEO of Oceania Cruises.
“Upscale travelers are eager to explore the world once more and are booking farther in advance to ensure their travel dreams are fulfilled,”

This latest booking record comes only weeks after the line sold out its epic six-month-long world cruise on the first day it opened for sale to the public.
Travelers continue to drive robust demand for long, exotic cruise vacations with “Grand Voyages” ranging from several weeks to more than two months in length, accounting for almost one-third of the bookings taken on 3rd March.
The line has also seen exceptionally strong demand for its 2022 Europe and North America collection of voyages.
To satisfy demand from consumers and travel advisors who are booking farther in advance, the line will be opening 2023 Europe and North America voyages for sale in early September.
