Setting sail from Lima (Callao)

Peru's underrated capital enjoys a fine setting on the Pacific coast, and the handsome colonial-era buildings surrounding the Plaza de Armas give clues to Lima's distinguished history. For three centuries this was the capital of the Spanish Americas, when the city grew rich on the back of plundered Inca gold. Modern Lima can be a little hectic, the roads often clogged with traffic, but the historic centre has an undeniable charm to it, and in recent years a clutch of innovative restaurants have helped to put Peruvian cuisine on the map.

Don't miss

The pre-Columbian citadel of Pachacamac is a must see, just a few miles from the city and a key Inca site.

Arriving in Rio de Janeiro

The carnival capital of the world, Rio de Janeiro needs little introduction. We can think of few cities in the world that are able to compete when it comes to location: hugging the beautiful sandy shore and surrounded by jungle-clad islands and mountains, including the iconic Corcovado, the setting for Brazil's most vibrant city is simply breathtaking. Strut your stuff on Copacabana beach, shimmy to the rhythms of samba and bossa nova, or just drink in the view from the feet of Christ the Redeemer - Rio is truly a destination to be savoured.

Our tip

Copacabana is the city’s most famous beach, and a must-visit, but we prefer Ipanema for its more upmarket vibe.

The Ship

Your home from home

Oceania Regatta at sea
R Class Grand Dining Room
R Class Terrace Cafe

Small enough to operate fascinating port-intensive itineraries, but with the space for dining options, comfortable accommodation and more, sister ships Insignia, Nautica, Regatta and Sirena are for many the perfect size.

What we love

These four boutique style sister ships carry just 684 guests apiece, with a comfortable, relaxed country house style and plenty of intimate corners. We love the alternative restaurants - Oceania is rightly renowned for great food - and the pretty little library up on deck 10.

Capacity 684 Guests
Crew 400 International Staff
Style On Oceania it's all about the time spent ashore, so back on board it's relaxed and unpretentious, with no dressing up. Open seating throughout creates an atmosphere which is friendly and sociable.

Ways to make it better
Country Club Lima Hotel

Where to stay in Lima

We like the Country Club Lima Hotel for a bit of colonial style.

Nazca Lines, Peru

See more of Peru

Travel south from Lima to Nazca to see the extraordinary Nazca Lines – well worth the journey, and stay on at the beach if you have time to spare.

Belmond Copacabana Palace, Rio de Janeiro

Our favourite hotel in Rio

We like the Belmond Copacabana Palace – go for the upper floor suites for great views over the ocean.

Tijuca forest, Rio de Janeiro

Around Rio

The extraordinary thing is that right by the city is the Tijuca Forest, great for a four wheel drive tour in acres of lush mountainous national park.
