Oceania Cruises has confirmed the name of its second Allura Class ship as Allura. The 1,200-guest vessel – a sister ship to Vista that premieres this May – will be the cruise line’s eighth ship and will debut in 2025.
Allura will entice guests to discover some of the world’s most captivating locations, enjoying the freedom of exploration while sailing the open seas. Allura represents the eternal call of the mysterious and the unknown, Oceania Cruises said of the vessel.

“At Oceania Cruises, we are always looking for ways to evolve, elevate and modernise our offerings to continuously surprise and delight our discerning guests as they enjoy immersive new experiences,” said Frank A. Del Rio, President of Oceania Cruises. “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.
“The arrival of any new ship is the ideal time to look closely at what we offer travellers. As we prepare to welcome Allura to the family, we have already started planning exciting new elements to be added across the fleet.”
Allura will serve The Finest Cuisine at Sea, boast exceptionally personalised service with warm and welcoming staff, and feature captivating residential furnishings and decor as she sails a variety of destination-rich itineraries.
Allura highlights include an array of inventive new dining experiences including Ember, an upscale signature restaurant serving reimagined American classics, and Aquamar Kitchen, both debuting on Vista in May, as well as the largest standard staterooms and a new Chef’s Studio.
Currently under construction by shipbuilder Fincantieri S.p.A. in Italy, the all-veranda vessel will sail her maiden voyage in spring 2025.
Details of Allura‘s inaugural season to destinations across Europe and the Americas will be revealed later this year.
