Oceania expands early booking incentives to more cruises and all categories

Jason Montague - response to OLife Advantage has exceeded expectations
Oceania Cruises is dramatically expanding its 'OLife Advantage' early booking incentive program to travelers who reserve a 2016 Europe, Alaska or Canada/New England cruise before Dec. 31, 2015.

Effective today, OLife Advantage will reward all travelers, no matter which suite or stateroom category booked, with amenities that include free shore excursions, unlimited Internet and pre-paid gratuities. Additionally, all customers who booked after OLife Advantage launched in July, but purchased a lower category, non-qualifying stateroom, will retroactively receive the complimentary benefits. 

'The response to this program from our guests and travel agent partners has exceeded our expectations,' said Jason Montague, president and chief operating officer for Oceania Cruises. 'Guests quickly understand the incredible value OLife Advantage offers and, as a result, we’ve decided to extend to all stateroom and suite categories for our 2016 Europe, Alaska and coastal New England and Canada sailings.'

OLife Advantage provides three free excursions per person on sailings up to nine days, four free excursions on journeys between 10 and 13 days, and five free excursions on itineraries 14 days or more. Passengers may choose from a wide variety of excursions, for example, a scenic visit to Ravello in Amalfi/Positano, a walking tour of Tallinn, Estonia, and sea kayaking to Eagle Island in Ketchikan, Alaska.

Travelers will be able to take advantage of the free Internet using the recently upgraded ship-wide Wi-Fi system or at the Oceania@Sea Internet center. Wi-Fi connectivity is available throughout the entire ship, including all public spaces, outdoor decks and all suites and staterooms.

The OLife Advantage program extends to all spring, summer and fall 2016 voyages in Europe, Alaska and Canada/New England, for bookings before the end of 2015.

Summer 2016 includes the maiden season for Sirena, which expands the Oceania fleet to six ships.
