The Cruise Traveller are proud to bring you this brand new offer, for the first time P&O Cruises are now offering you the chance to join Oceana in Italy, and take a 7 night cruise. The hotel is centrally located and offers guests all the modern facilities you need for a fun stay in Venice.
So two nights of pampered Italian hospitality in Venice followed by 7 nights of fine dining and excellent facilities onboard the Ventura, what more could you possibly want!?
The P&O Oceana is a mid-sized cruise ship which has a fun, lively yet luxurious ambience.
To keep you entertained during cruise holidays aboard the Oceana cruise ship, you'll find a plethora of exciting facilities and attractions, including 4 swimming pools, 6 hot tubs, an ocean-view gym, a sports court and a Monte Carlo casino. When you're relaxing and unwinding during cruise holidays, it's great when you know that you can take things at your own pace. Traditional cruise ship dining is provided by the Oceana's principal dining rooms, the Adriatic and the Lingurian. There are also 2 show lounges on the Oceana cruise ship: the 550-seat Footlights Theatre where you can see stage shows, theatre events and even the occasional film, and the 480-seat Starlights Show Lounge, which is a cabaret-style lounge with its own bar. Accommodation on cruise ships is a very important consideration for cruise holidays, and there is a wide range to choose from on the P&O Oceana. The Mediterranean Sea is one of the most popular places to take cruise holiday or cruise and stay holiday - the sea is the largest inland body of water in the world and is home to three diverse continents and hundreds of interesting ports of call. The western Mediterranean includes a vast expanse of the Spanish coastline, with interesting ports of call including Cadiz, Malaga and Barcelona. With the North African countries of Morocco and Tunisia adding their own special blend of culture and history to the region, you can immediately see the diversity of this area of the Mediterranean. Museums, restaurants, historic buildings and piazzas are all hidden amongst this mass of waterways.
The biggest attractions are obviously St Marks square (the citys patron saint), the Palazzo Ducale, home of the Doge, the impressive collections of Italian renaissance artwork, and the numerous bridges dotted along the Canals, including the elegant Bridge of Sighs. Venice is a year round cruise and stay destination, but most cruise lines operate their sailings during the summer season, this is also when the city is at its busiest in terms of numbers of people. Rome is arguably the most fascinating city in Italy and is definitly worth a visit whilst on your cruise and stay. A vibrant European capital, which has its very own distinct people, culture, food and art, and its home to the Catholic church as well as being a significant reminder of the Ancient empire that once dominated Europe and beyond. The obvious sights of the Vatican City, St Peters square, the Colosseum, the Forum, Piazza Navona, Spanish Steps and the Trevi fountain are easily seen by foot.


Generally Rome is a good all year round destination to visit on a cruise and stay, the summers are long and hot, and winter is generally mild in comparison to Northern Europe. Monaco is officially the second smallest country in the world after the Vatican City, its well known for its rich and famous inhabitants, the casino and the yearly grand prix. Whilst staying in Monte Carlo, you can visit the world famous grand casino, the 100 year old oceanography museum, watch the changing of the guards at the Grimaldi's Royal residence at Le Rocher, visit the exotic gardens or take a scenic helicopter ride along the French Riviera!
The once important trading centre of the Mediterranean has seen much renovation also, and is now home to one of the largest aquariums in Europe and one of the most extensive maritime museums. All of these attractions can be seen easily from our handpicked hotels, which allow guests the freedom of the city, and quick access to the cruise terminal. We have teamed up with some great partners to offer you the complete range of travel options. Following that, she will reposition to Europe and will be doing mostly 7-night Western Mediterranean cruises, departing from either Barcelona, Marseille or Civitavecchia (the port city nearest Rome).
To mark the occasion we thought we would throw in a 2 night pre cruise stay at one of the most beautiful cities in the Mediterranean, Venice. Then it's time to join the superb Oceana, prepare yourself for a fantastic 7 night full board cruise with P&O Cruises.
There are 10 decks full of fantastic facilities, amenities and entertainment to make your cruise holiday as enjoyable and memorable as possible. Plus, you'll enjoy excellent service from warm and welcoming staff, a wide range of dining options and many other cruisers to mingle and make friends with! For this reason, the Oceana cruise ship has now introduced Freedom Dining, meaning that cruisers are completely free to dine when they want and with whom they want. Guests will enjoy a delightful menu of tasty British cuisine as well as some international dishes in these dining rooms, all served to you by friendly and attentive waiting staff.
Also, ballroom dancers will be very happy with the large wooden dance floors and the professional dance couples who accompany most cruises to host and teach a wide range of fun and exciting dances. The 5 main cabin types range from interior cabins offering excellent value for money to outside cabins with a balcony to mini suites and luxurious suites. The principal ports for embarking and disembarking cruises are Barcelona, Genoa, Rome, Venice, Athens and Istanbul; however there are a host of other ports which can be used for cruise holidays. The tiny UK colony of Gibraltar and the Spanish owned Balearic islands are also on many itineraries across most cruise lines.
France and Italy complete the line up, and with ports of interest including Marseilles, Villefranche, Nice, Livorno, Naples and Sicily, its not hard to understand why the western Mediterranean is one of the most popular areas to cruise around at the moment.
A unique European city due to it being positioned precariously on an island in the Mediterranean Sea, its labyrinth of canals and bridges are fantastic for a day of exploring and wandering.
It is a very easy city to see and navigate, with regular public transport running up and down the Grand Canal all day long. Notable annual events include the festival del Redentore, which is the 3rd week in July, offering a mass of fireworks in the evenings and the Venice film festival, which is the end of August every year.


This coupled with the numerous basilicas, churches and museums will give you an endless list of things to do and see. Autumn is the most likely time of year to encounter rain, but again this is quite minimal compared to the UK.
Each year thousands of foreigners are attracted to the incredible casino (of which the local citizens are prohibited from) and a very pleasant climate. It is an essentially important historical port, once home to historical explorers such as Columbus, it is now a great place to meet one of the many ships that leave from here all summer long. Confidence that you are getting the very best prices, many with exclusive upgrades and inclusions. So come and stay in a lovely hotel in the picturesque island of Venice before embarking on your wonderful cruise. This is also an ideal cruise ship for family holidays thanks to the great children's facilities, swimming pools and family-friendly accommodation.
The cruise ship has 12 different bars across its 10 passenger decks, including Magnum's lively champagne bar, which is perfect for a night of indulgence. Also, many cabins have third and fourth person upper bunk beds, making the accommodation ideal for fun family holidays.
Feel free to give us a call for more information on the Mediterranean and to book your cruise deal on 0800 542 2943. The lido is good if you fancy having a few days at the beach and its endless golden sands are a big draw for families with children.
Feel free to give us a call for more information on Venice and to book your great value cruise deal on 0800 542 2943. An open air museum packed with history, buildings and relics spanning thousands of years, you could spend a year touring Rome and still claim that you hadn’t seen all the sights! Although it is an independent state in Europe, it is not in the EU, but offers the free euro zone customs (ie you can enter the country from France without a passport), and uses the Euro as its currency. Wander the maze of tiny cobbled streets, and get a feel for a town that in places hasnt changed for hundreds of years. As there is a lack of a prevailing wind, the summer temperatures are typically higher than those felt along the coastlines. A few transatlantic sailings will be also taking place aboard Norwegian Epic throughout the year, as she repositions between Europe and Miami.
