Oceania Cruises has taken the wraps off the recently completed work on Riviera while in drydock in Marseille, France. The ship enhancement is part of the multi-million dollar OceaniaNEXT program, which will next see Riviera’s sister-ship Marina revamped in May 2020.
Riviera now features an all-new coffee bar area in addition to the new lounge, with sweeping sea views on Deck 14. Resplendent in silvery-grey and sea greens punctuated with bold accents of gold and high-gloss ebony and white marble, the new Bar Istas lounge is the perfect place to relax in quietude or enjoy lively conversation over a bespoke illy coffee creation.
Riviera’s 200 Concierge and 244 Veranda staterooms, along with the 124 Penthouse Suites, radiate a stylish new air, inspired by the better-than-new Insignia and Sirena. Retaining the warmth and charm they’re renowned for, the lustrous wenge walnut panelling and upholstered headboards are now offset with tones of Espresso, Caramel, and Ivory in new carpeting and fabrics.
The three next-generation Owner’s Suites are now furnished exclusively with the Ralph Lauren Home Collection. Guests now enter through the foyer with a limestone and black cabochon inset floor, walls of inset Georgian wood panelling, and a mahogany and quartzite bar. Spacious and airy, this grand room features dramatic sea-views from floor-to-ceiling windows dressed in Ralph Lauren Home Grimaldi-weave sail fabric, along with a self-playing ebony piano that provides the perfect interlude for in-suite entertaining.
The living room is anchored by a new deep-navy sectional accented with saddle-suede and accompanied by a mahogany Lounge Moderne chair upholstered in navy and white Super-Yacht Stripe. The centrepiece of the dining room is the Mayfair dining table with a new Barrett Knurled chandelier overhead.
The master suite, which is an entire retreat unto itself, has taken on an entirely new persona with a new Cote D’Azure king-size bed, elegant Mayfair Bergere side chairs upholstered in Sutton Suede Doe and dramatic nickel-trimmed lighting accents.
The wraparound teak verandas feature stylish pieces that were custom crafted by Ralph Lauren Home for Oceania Cruises.
Designed by Los Angeles based Trevor R. Howells Interior Design, the Owner’s Suites reflect Ralph Lauren’s appreciation for sailing, Hollywood glamour and timeless, classical beauty.
