Oceania Cruises announced its OceaniaNEXT initiative, which will lead the way in enhancing all facets of the guest experience.
The first project of the initiative will be the $100 million re-inspiration of the line’s four Regatta-Class ships: Nautica, Insignia, Sirena, and Regatta. The 684-guest ships will reemerge with 342 brand new designer suites and staterooms, plus new decor in the restaurants, lounges and bars, inspired by the line’s 450 ports of call. Changes guests can expect to see include a new Grand Staircase to welcome them onboard, as well as brighter and more spacious staterooms that feature modernized, custom-crafted furnishings, exotic stone and polished wood finishes, plus designer accessories.
“OceaniaNEXT will be the most extensive and comprehensive suite of product and guest service enhancements that we have ever undertaken,” said Bob Binder, president and CEO of Oceania Cruises, in press materials. “Our Regatta-Class ships are like second homes to our loyal guests and travel partners. They don’t build ships like these anymore, which is why this re-inspiration project is such an important milestone in our company’s 15-year history. We are maintaining the intimate surroundings and personal attention that our guests love, while at the same time setting a new standard of style and elegance for small ship cruising.”
Insignia will be the first to debut on Dec. 7, 2018, followed by Sirena in May 2019, Regatta in September 2019, and Nautica in June 2020.
