OCEANIA CRUISES SHIFTS â€˜RIVIERAâ€™ MAIDEN VOYAGE DATE
MIAMI, August 3, 2011 â€“ Oceania Cruisesâ€™ new Riviera will sail her maiden voyage April 24, 2012, from Athens, 10 days later than originally planned. The line is rescheduling Rivieraâ€™s first revenue cruise to allow additional time for the staff to familiarize themselves with the shipâ€™s facilities and fine-tune the countless details required to deliver the acclaimed Oceania Cruises Experience.
The new maiden voyage is a 12-day Ancient Grandeur itinerary that visits Alexandria and Port Said, Haifa and Ashdod (Jerusalem), Alanya, Rhodes, Patmos and Kusadasi (Ephesus) before ending with an overnight stay onboard ship in Istanbul.
Oceania Cruises guests who were booked on the original 10-night maiden voyage will be moved to the new, longer sailing at no additional cost. Guests will also receive a $250 per guest shipboard credit as a gesture of goodwill from Oceania Cruises.
Guests who desire a different voyage may book any other Oceania Cruisesâ€™ itinerary and enjoy a $250 per guest future cruise credit. In the event guests wish to cancel, they will receive a full refund. Travel agent commissions will be protected.
