Oceania Cruises has revealed that it will call the first of its two Allura Class ships, Vista.
The Allura Class ships, which were unveiled by Oceania Cruises over two years ago, will accommodate 1,200 guests and are being constructed by Fincantieri.
Vista will be the seventh vessel in the Oceania fleet and will set sail in 2023. The sister ship will debut in 2025.
Oceania said the new ship’s name “reflects the dawn of a new age in travel,” and “will exemplify all the hallmarks of the Oceania Cruises experience that guests have come to expect.”
“A marvel in the making, Vista will deliver The Finest Cuisine at Sea, exceptionally personalised service with two staff members for every three guests, a warm and welcoming ambiance as a result of the ship’s captivating residential furnishings, and introduce several unique firsts for the brand in the realms of dining and guest experience.” Oceania Cruises said.
“Oceania Cruises is an innovative and ever-evolving brand. We are always looking over the horizon, and Vista represents our view to the future,” said Bob Binder, President & CEO of Oceania Cruises.
Vista will feature “dramatic and glamorous public spaces” including The Grand Dining Room, which pays homage to the “beautiful age” of early 20th-century Parisian society through its contemporary interpretation of Belle Époque.
Vista will offer nine culinary experiences, expansive public spaces, and spacious, residentially inspired suites and staterooms, which will progressively be revealed from May 2021.
The new ship’s inaugural voyages will open for sale in September 2021.
