Oceania Cruises’ 2021-2022 Tropics & Exotics Collection of itineraries in the Caribbean, South America, South Pacific, Africa and the Far East has 75 brand-new routes and 10 maiden calls.

The collection includes 105 itineraries. Cruises go to the southernmost reaches of South America and explore Patagonia with the opportunity to witness Antarctic locations such as Deception Island and Paradise Bay. Closer to home, travelers will find Oceania Cruises’ ‘uncommon Caribbean,’ featuring boutique ports such as Roseau, Dominica; Kralendijk, Bonaire; Kingstown, St. Vincent; and Îles des Saintes, Guadeloupe.

New ports

Besides Îles des Saintes, maiden calls include Amami Oshima (Naze), Ishinomaki, Moji, Onahama and Otaru (Sapporo), Japan; Mystery Island, Vanuatu; Panama City, Panama; Port Arthur (Tasmania), Australia; and Whittier, Alaska.

South America

Itineraries include Buenos Aires to Rio de Janeiro with the beaches of Porto Belo, cultural treasures such as the beautifully preserved colonial center of Parati and the exploding culinary scenes of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Other highlights are Amazon voyages that combine rain forest explorations with less-frequented Caribbean destinations.

For example, Marina will operate an 18-day ‘Transit of the Americas’ cruise through the Panama Canal with overnights in Panama City and Lima plus calls at Ecuador and in the western Caribbean.

The ship’s 20-day ‘Polar & Patagonian Quest’ combines scenic cruising in Antarctica and the Chilean Fjords with the Falkland Islands.


Riviera and Sirena spend the winter season sailing ‘uncommon Caribbean’ voyages laced with less-visited ports. Several cruises begin and end in Barbados and two Panama Canal voyages feature an overnight in Panama City.

‘Crystalline Caribbean,’ a 10-day itinerary with two departures aboard Sirena, sails round-trip Bridgetown, Barbados, and visits Îles des Saintes as well as Roseau, Kingstown and Port-of-Spain, among other destinations.

Riviera’s ‘Sunny Festivities’ 12-day voyage has stops at ports like Kralendijk, Willemstad and Pointe-à-Pitre.
