Oceania Cruises Has Best Booking Day in Company History

Oceania Cruises has announced that the opening for sale of its exotic 2022-2023 itineraries resulted in the most bookings in a single day in the line’s history.

The company reports that the top-selling destinations were Asia, Africa, and South America. The single best-selling voyage was the 35-night Australia circumnavigation cruise that will take place over Christmas and New Year’s.

This booking record comes just weeks after the line sold out its six month-long world cruise on January 27 — the first day it opened for sale.

Disney CEO Says Line Could Start Limited Operations in Fall

Even though Disney Cruise Line has only canceled sailings through May, Disney CEO Bob Chapek says a more realistic restart date is further out.

Speaking at The Walt Disney Company’s 2021 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, he said that the line could start limited operations in the fall “with some luck.” 

As a more optimistic piece of news, the executive said that construction continues on three new ships for the line, including Disney Wish which is set to debut next year.

Celestyal Cruises to Resume Sailings in May

Greece-based line Celestyal Cruises has announced that it will resume sailings from Athens in May.

The start of the season had previously been planned for April, but the new date is in sync with a recently-announced roadmap to open Greece for tourism this year. 

Despite the line’s acquisition of Costa neoRomantica, which it renamed Celestyal Experience, the line will instead begin its resumption to service aboard a smaller ship called Celestyal Crystal.
