Luxury cruise line announces SA port call
Tuesday, 22 September 2009

OCEANIA Cruises’ Nautica will be visiting South Africa in late 2010 under the cruise liner’s 2010/2011 Winter Collection sailing programme.

The Nautica will depart Istanbul on November 11 on a 30-day voyage to Cape Town. The ship will then sail from Cape Town to Singapore on December 11.

Passengers booking 2010/2011 Winter Collection cruises before March 31 through Oceania’s local GSA, Cruises International, will receive discounts of up to US$3,000 (about R22,000) per person off their standard fare.

Cruises International is advising clients wanting to sail on the Nautica to or from Cape Town to book as early as possible, as Oceania Cruises is reporting a steady increase in booking activity for next year.

Thirty-two of the line’s 2010 voyages are already sold out and overall pricing has strengthened back to 2007 and 2008 pre-recession levels. As a result, prices on over 40 percent of Oceania Cruises’ 2010 departures have been increased, effective September 1.  Another price hike will come into effect on January 1, 2010.

?“The demand and pricing strength Oceania Cruises is experiencing showcases the resilience of the cruise industry in the wake of a challenging economy,” said Frank Del Rio, Chief Executive of Prestige Cruise Holdings, parent company of Oceania Cruises and its sister brand Regent Seven Seas Cruises.

Oceania Cruises also reported new booking records last month, with August 31 setting the record for the biggest single booking day in the company’s history.

The booking frenzy was driven by promotional offers for the cruise line’s 2010 European Collection voyages expiring on the last day of the month.

Jenny Arthur, Cruises International’s Product Manager for the Luxury Portfolio, said South African agents had supported the promotion well:  “One agent even booked a group of 47 passengers.”
