Oceania Cruises re-inspired Riviera will sail in Asia for the first time in 2023-2024 season, giving guests an opportunity to experience the brand’s cultural immersion and culinary excellence.

Riviera’s inaugural season in the region of 25 voyages ranging from 10 to 82 days will explore Arabia, India, Myanmar, Vietnam, China, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines. 

The new sailings have nearly doubled the seasonal availability with 121 itineraries available for bookings across Oceania’s Riviera, Regatta, Insignia and Nautica. 

"The decision to move Riviera to Asia was easy; demand for our Exotics collection is very strong with our well-travelled guests longing to visit remote, wondrous destinations for off-the-beaten-path experiences,” said Frank A. Del Rio, president of Oceania Cruises.

Riviera has been given a sweeping rejuvenation of all staterooms and suites, while Riviera's public spaces have been elevated with new carpets and leather-covered armchairs.

The Grand Dining Room reflects a renewed sense of grandeur and dining alfresco has been revamped with a new trattoria, featuring an array of wood-fired pizzas. 

Riviera will sail 25 voyages offering destination-rich experiences in ports such as Cochin, Yangon, Busan, Phuket and Bangkok.

For the first time in Oceania Cruises' history, Regatta and Nautica offer itineraries across the South Pacific and French Polynesia, with more than 20 voyages highlighting some of the most sought-after ports in the region, including Tahiti, Bora Bora, Moorea, Rangiroa and Raiatea.
