Due partially to the length of these cruises (mostly 10, 12, and 14 days, with some monthlong sailings spicing up the mix) and partially to the low-key onboard atmosphere, Oceania tends to attract older passengers who prefer to entertain themselves and enjoy the destination-heavy itineraries. Most are Americans, and many have sailed previously with Oceania (or even with Renaissance back in the old days). A sprinkling of younger couples usually find themselves on board as well, though children are rare enough to be surprising. Whatever their age, passengers tend to be drawn by the line's 100% casual dress code and ambience.
Because of Oceania's stringent nonsmoking rules, most passengers are nonsmokers. Aside from one corner of the Pool Deck and one corner of the Horizons nightclub, smoking is not permitted anywhere on board -- even in your cabin or private balcony.
