Grand Voyage Oceania ’25

September 4th, 2025 for 26 days, hosted by M&K. After enjoying a few days in Nice, we embark on the brand new Oceania Allura for an epic Grand Voyage, starting from Monte Carlo. In addition to free economy airfare, we have free pre-paid gratuities, Simply More House Beverage Package, and a $700 per person shore excursion credit! While on our pre-cruise portion, it includes airport transfers, 2 nights hotel, a city tour, a foodie tour, a Welcome Dinner, and finally transfers to the ship. As a bonus, we end in NYC, so it’s just a short flight home!

Frolic in the chic resort towns of Spain’s Costa del Sol, marvel at the Moorish architecture of Cádiz and Tangier, and trek through volcanic landscapes in Madeira and the Azores. In North America, delight in the storied opulence of Newport and cozy Bar Harbor.

The Oceania Cruises’ voyage from Monte Carlo to New York spans 24 days, commencing on September 6, 2025. The cruise offers an enchanting journey with stops in various European cities including Marseille, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, and Lisbon, before crossing the Atlantic. Guests will visit Madeira and the Azores in Portugal, followed by stops in Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Maine, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island, concluding in New York on September 30. The cruise promises a blend of cultural, historical, and scenic experiences across two continents.

Embark on an enchanting voyage that begins in the sun-kissed splendor of Nice, France, where azure waters meet bustling promenades, and the spirit of the French Riviera is as intoxicating as its world-renowned wines. Spend two leisurely nights here, allowing the charm of the Côte d’Azur to envelop you. As your journey unfolds, you’ll be whisked away on a luxurious cruise from the glittering Monte Carlo, setting sail across the Mediterranean’s storied waters. Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of culture, history, and cuisine in each port of call: from the romantic allure of Provence, the architectural wonder of Barcelona’s Sagrada Familia, to the rugged beauty of Gibraltar. Glide through the waters to the soulful rhythms of Tangier and the historic splendors of Seville. As you cross the Atlantic, let the ocean’s vastness inspire deep relaxation before arriving in the vibrant mosaic of North America, from the quaint charm of Bar Harbor to the historic streets of Boston, culminating in the iconic embrace of the Statue of Liberty as you arrive in the bustling metropolis of New York City. This is not just a journey; it is a symphony of experiences that promises to resonate long after you’ve returned to shore.
