About

Ocean cruise

Celebrate the new year in style with some winter sun on this round-trip Oceania cruise out of Miami, sailing between sun-drenched between sun-drenched Caribbean ports in Mexico, Belize and Honduras. After leaving Miami’s Art-Deco glitz, Mexico’s Costa Maya impresses with jungle-backed beaches, which hide Mayan ruins. It’s then on to Belize’s Harvest Caye for artisans’ villages and the world’s second-largest coral reef before, New Year’s Eve is spent on the white sands of a Honduran island – Roatán. Then drop into the beautiful island of Cozumel on the return to Miami. Savour it all from the comfort of Oceania's newest ship, Vista.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
UK to Miami

Enjoy included UK airport lounge access before your daytime flight to Miami. On arrival, transfer to your hotel where you will stay overnight. People-watchers will enjoy South Beach's Ocean Drive, while architecture buffs will love the Art Deco District. If you're looking for something a bit different, there are world-class museums and shopping venues too. In Miami, there really is something for everyone.

Stay: Miami hotel

Day 2
Board Vista & depart Miami

After breakfast this morning, you'll head to the port to embark Oceania's captivating new vessel, Vista. After settling into your chosen stateroom or suite, take some time to familiarise yourself with the multitude of facilities on board, from the many bars and lounges to the Aquamar Spa and Vitality Centre. This evening you'll enjoy your first dinner on board, whether you that's at the Grand Dining Room with its mix of classic and continental cuisine, or one of the themed restaurants dotted around the ship.

Stay: Oceania Vista

Day 3
At sea

Today will be spent at sea as you cruise through the Straits of Florida, a narrow passage between the Florida Keys and Cuba on your way to Mexico. Why not spend the day embracing your inner artist at the Artist Loft, where talented artists in residence offer inspiring workshops. Or perhaps learn to prepare a variety of exquisite dishes at The Culinary Centre, the ship's very own state-of-the-art cooking school. As the sun sets, gather in one of the convivial bars, attend a spectacular production show or take in an unforgettable musical performance.

Stay: Oceania Vista

Day 4
Costa Maya, Mexico

This morning, as you enjoy breakfast you'll arrive into the cruise port of Costa Maya, in Mexico's developing Costa Maya region. Surrounded by dense jungle and turquoise waters and blessed with radiant sunshine all year round, it's little wonder the ancient Maya chose to call this place home. Indeed, historical ceremonial centres like Chacchoben give us an insight into their culture and heritage. Today, you'll have a chance to climb among the ruins, many of which are still being excavated. Look out for raucous toucans in the trees. Also available as an optional excursion is a chance to go swimming with bottlenose dolphins and learning about their remarkably intelligent behaviour and friendliness. For a more relaxing day, opt to snorkel in the shallow crystal-clear waters near the shore.

Day 5
Harvest Caye, Belize

Today offers the perfect opportunity to live out your paradise island fantasies in one of the Caribbean's lesser known but more stunning islets. Harvest Caye - just off the coast of Belize - features an enchanting range of environments from tropical rainforests to marshes and coral reefs, all within the confines of just 75 acres. Use your time to explore its incredible biodiversity, discovering exotic wildlife such as crocodiles, howler monkeys, toucans and water birds and exploring the world's second largest coral reef. There is also a chance to try out river tubing or zip-lining through the rainforest, meaning you can enjoy both relaxation and adventure amid lush tropical landscapes.

Stay: Oceania Vista

Day 6
Roátan, Honduras

With trademark white-sand beaches, swaying palm trees and magnificent rainforest backdrops, Roátan is Honduras' answer to a tropical island paradise. A prominent reef ringing around the island conceals shipwrecks, coral gardens and a plethora of exotic sea creatures. Spend today exploring the superb shallow reefs through snorkelling, kayaking or diving, or discover the island's other natural wonders on a horseback ride on the beach and through a tropical forest past spectacular volcanic rocks. It is also possible to visit a nearby nature sanctuary where you have a chance to interact with several endemic species of monkey.

Stay: Oceania Vista

Day 7
Cozumel, Mexico

The lovely island of Cozumel has long been a favourite of visitors to Mexico. Just off the coast of the Yucatán Peninsula, the sunny weather tends to be just about perfect, and cool ocean breezes gently whisk away your cares. Coral reefs are a sanctuary for those who revere colourful marine life, while inland Mayan ruins are havens for history buffs. As far as the local towns, they’re just plain fun. If you’re looking for a party, you’ll find it along San Miguel’s waterfront north of Avenue Andrés Quintana Roo. To experience the island in its more rugged state, head to the east side, which gets more wind and bigger waves.
