Oceania Cruises debuts two new vessels for an increased luxury experience
The company’s new Vista vessel promises to offer a unique luxury experience, including personalised service with two staff members for every three guests. Vista’s maiden season, beginning in May 2023, is already sold out.
Bob Binder, former President and current Vice Chairman of Oceania Cruises, says the ship has been designed to meet their customers “passion for new experiences and destinations”
Built by Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri S.p.A. in 2021, the vessel’s objective is to combine a sense of familiarity with fresh perspectives. Designed to provide the small-ship luxury experience that Oceania Cruises is well known for, Vista features a wide variety of social, recreational and wellness spaces oriented across six of the ship’s 11 guest decks.
In January of this year, Oceania Cruises announced the arrival of Vista’s sister ship Allura. Allura will be the cruise line’s second 1,200-guest Allura Class ship and their eighth vessel overall. Allura will also be built by Fincantieri S.p.A. and will sail her maiden voyage in the spring of 2025. Frank A. Del Rio, President of Oceania Cruises, is confident about Allura’s future, “We are thrilled with the incredible demand we have witnessed for Allura’s sister ship, Vista, with her 2023 maiden season already sold out, and we know Allura will be equally as popular with our guests.” Details of Allura’s inaugural season, including various marquee and boutique destinations across Europe and the Americas, will be revealed this spring before tickets go on sale in the summer.
