Oceania Cruises is undertaking a major renovation to two of its cruise ships, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The company will be undertaking what it’s calling a “re-inspiration” of the 1,210-guest Riviera and Marina ships.
Both ships are undergoing a “stem-to-stern” upgrade — meaning every surface of every room will be entirely new; a new color palette and interior aesthetic will adorn public spaces; and new views will fill the ships’ signature Horizon bars.
“At Oceania Cruises, we continue to raise the bar and elevate the guest experience at every opportunity,” said Howard Sherman, president and CEO of Oceania Cruises. “Whether it’s innovative new culinary concepts, immersive new destination experiences, or presenting our guests with ships that are not just better, but better than new, Oceania Cruises sets the standard by which others are judged.”
The centerpiece of the changes will be a complete reimagination of the ships’ suites and staterooms.
“Lighter, brighter, and even more spacious, every suite and stateroom on board will glow from a floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall re-inspiration,” the company says. “Custom-crafted furnishings, exotic stone, and polished wood finishes, and designer accessories will add an air of elegance and sophistication that are the hallmarks of our completely transformed guest accommodations. Every square inch will be new, enhanced by nuanced shades of the sea and sky, creating a harmonious celebration of style and comfort.”
Oceania’s Riviera ship will debut on Dec. 7, soon heading to Miami for a mix of seven and 14-day Caribbean sailings.
Marina will be debut on Nov. 13, 2023, launching sailings to South America on Dec. 3 out of Miami.
