Oceana was launched in 2000 and received a makeover in 2012. This family-friendly ship is a firm favourite with guests who adore her casual, relaxed atmosphere and inimitable style. From the moment you step on board, you'll be amazed by the atrium with its palm trees and glass-fronted lifts. There is also an array of restaurants, ten bars and lounges, modern sports and leisure facilities, and chic staterooms to make each cruise enjoyable.
Days at sea are the perfect time to explore. Discover four pools and six whirlpools, a sports court with basketball hoops and a golf driving range. The rejuvenating Oasis Spa offers pampering hot stone massages or you can treat yourself to a new hair-style in Oasis Salon. Lose yourself in a book at the library, get active with a session at the gym, or indulge in retail therapy at the Emporium, Bond Street and Regent Street shops.
Cruises on Oceana offer fantastic luxury and style.
Oceana is a food lover’s favourite. The ship has two main dining rooms - Adriatic Restaurant offers traditional club dining with early or late sittings, while Ligurian Restaurant provides the same menu but more flexible dining times. For something a bit different, Café Jardin has an evening menu created by Marco Pierre White, with Italian sharing dishes and a Mediterranean wine selection. Café Jardin also offers a pre-ordered children's menu between 17:15 and 17:45 daily.
Horizon Grill is located by the pools, where you can grab yourself a range of gourmet snacks during the day and, in the evening, dine more intimately under the stars. For a more casual affair, head to The Plaza for a dedicated buffet restaurant serving a wide variety of dishes from around the world. The open-air Beach House looks across the pools and serves burgers, hot dogs and jacket potatoes by day, and tasty seafood and steak dishes by night. For ice cream lovers, there is Sundaes — the dedicated ice cream bar.
Riviera Bar is the place to socialise both day and night, combining refreshing poolside drinks with pre-dinner cocktails and relaxing music. Enjoy some downtime with a speciality coffee at Explorers Bar or unwind with drinks and a twirl around the dance floor at Tiffany's. Magnums Champagne Bar serves champagne by the glass or bottle. For that traditional 'English pub' feel, Yacht and Compass Bar offers a wide range of beers and ales, pub quizzes and live bands each evening. Winners' sports bar sits next to Monte Carlo Casino and is the perfect spot for a celebratory cocktail.
Oceana offers an eclectic mix of entertainment after dinner. Footlights Theatre hosts two performances a night with West End inspired shows, cabaret acts and spectacular dance numbers on stage. Afterwards follow the crowds to Starlight's Show Lounge for dancing and live music. Risk a few pennies at the slot machines and blackjack tables at Monte Carlo Casino or head to Le Club to dance and party until the early hours.
