Oceania Cruises is rolling out new solo and sustainable travel options for their ships, after industry feedback in both areas. Their ships will add staterooms for solo travelers as well as the debut of Go Green and Beyond Blueprints shore excursion series as part of its industry-leading OceaniaNEXT initiative.
Solo cruising on Oceania
Solo travel has become an important travel trend in the last few years, and Oceania is working to cater to the solo traveler by adding 14 solo oceanview staterooms on each of four of their ships. The new concept will debut aboard Regatta on Sept. 25, 2022; Nautica on Sept. 26, 2022; and Insignia and Sirena on Oct. 1, 2022. Solo rooms will be located on Deck 6 on each ship.
“These new single-occupancy staterooms are ideal for guests seeking the joy of traveling solo while experiencing all the comfort, cuisine, and destination expertise that Oceania Cruises is renowned for,” added Sherman.

Oceania is also working to add sustainability to their brand with two new shore excursions – Go Green and Beyond Blueprints.
“One of the greatest factors in Oceania Cruises’ success is that we not only listen to the feedback our guests and travel partners provide, we act on it. Our guests and travel partners wanted more options for solo travelers and more diverse tour offerings, and we are delighted to deliver,” stated Howard Sherman, President & CEO of Oceania Cruises.
There are more than 150 Go Green tours around the world, where “travelers may engage with residents and businesses to learn about how they are working to conserve and sustain their surrounding environment,” according to Oceania.
