Oceania Cruises sails again with Marina
Ship is the first to sail from the port of Copenhagen since 2019.
Oceania Cruises has welcomed guests on board for the first time in 524 days, with Marina becoming the first ship in its fleet to resume sailing.
The ship is also the first to sail from the port of Copenhagen since 2019.
“Today is one of those days we will all remember for a lifetime as we reunite with our shipboard families and our guests to start exploring the world once again,” stated Bob Binder, president and CEO of Oceania Cruises.
Oceania Cruises’ first guests to board the Marina cut a ceremonial red ribbon and are welcomed by Captain Luca Manzi, master of Marina, and Binder.
Marina’s first voyage sails from Copenhagen to ports in Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Finland prior to concluding in Stockholm. Marina will spend the remainder of the summer and autumn cruising around Western Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Greek Isles prior to setting sail for Miami where it will arrive on December 1.
Marina is the first ship to resume sailing for Oceania Cruises and will quickly be followed by Riviera, which resumes sailing in the Greek Isles on October 18, 2021, and Insignia from Miami on December 21, 2021, to kick off the epic six-month-long Around the World in 180 Days voyage. Sirena resumes sailing in the Caribbean on January 21, 2022, and Regatta will start sailing on February 5, 2022, in Polynesia followed by Nautica in the Mediterranean on April 1, 2022.
All Oceania Cruises voyages are operating with a requirement that 100 per cent of guests and crew are vaccinated. The line is undertaking a phased restart with its science-backed plan for a healthy return to service that protects our guests, crew and communities visited.
