Oceania Announces Nautica Launch
In what is a long-awaited piece of good news for Oceania fans, the cruise line has announced a definitive launch date for Nautica, its third ship. Nautica will debut on November 28, 2005. Even more interesting is its maiden season of itineraries -- the ship will trawl the waters of the Far East, a region that is highly underserved by U.S.-based cruise lines.

Among the itineraries are Nautica's 24-night launch cruise from Athens to Singapore, which stops in Cairo, Luxur, Muscat, Dubai, Bombay, Cochin, and Phuket. Other options include a 35-night trip and, for the time-pressed, a handful of 15-night cruises that call in places like Hong Kong, Saigon, Taipei, Beijing, Bangkok and Hanoi.

The 30,277-ton, 684-passenger Nautica is part of Oceania's fleet of identical triplets. Nautica, like Regatta and Insignia, offers an English country house-hotel ambience, along with superb cuisine -- overseen by celebrity chef Jacques Pepin -- in all-open-seating restaurants.

Oceania Cruises launched its first ship in 2003. All of its ships are culled from the former Renaissance Cruises' late-1990's R series of new-builds.
