Bookings will open on 4 October 2023
Oceania Cruises has announced seven new summer sailings to French Polynesia and Hawaii on board the hotel-style 670-guest boutique cruise ship Regatta in 2025.
Guests will experience the ultimate in small ship luxury, with just 340 lavish suites and luxurious staterooms, almost 70% of which feature private verandas.
The new cruises will visit French Polynesia and Hawaii during the ideal months of August, September and October, and itineraries will span the blue lagoon of Bora Bora, the black sand beaches of Tahiti, the coral reefs of Raiatea and the soaring mountains in the verdant jungles of Nuku Hiva.
Four of the seven new sailings combine French Polynesia tours with the dramatic craters, canyons and waterfalls of the Hawaiian archipelago, giving passengers an opportunity to see the best of both worlds.
Sailing from Tahiti or Honolulu, the seven new voyages range from 10 to 18 days in duration.
Guests can experience the paradise of these islands first hand on immersive itineraries, discovering the traditions of native culture, mingling with indigenous communities, sampling local cuisine and exploring surrounding natural wonders.
Commenting on the new cruises, Oceania Cruises president Frank A Del Rio said: “At Oceania Cruises, we offer a captivating array of sailings in French Polynesia and Hawaii, charting lesser-known coastlines and taking travellers to boutique ports and off-the-beaten-track islands thanks to our small, luxurious ships.
"One of the highlights is undoubtedly the food. Whether you’re exploring Bora Bora and Nuku Hiva or Nawiliwili and Hilo, the flavours of these islands are meant to be savoured and enjoyed just as much as the spectacular scenery.”
