Oceania Cruises announced an order for two new ships from Fincantieri S.p.A. with the vessels set to be delivered in 2022 and 2025.
“This new class of ships will represent an evolution of the Oceania Cruises experience with all the elements our guests treasure—a warm, intimate, residential-style; the most spacious standard staterooms afloat; amazing suites, and of course, the finest cuisine at sea,” said Bob Binder, president and CEO of Oceania Cruises, in press materials.
The two 67,000 gross ton Allura-Class ships will each accommodate approximately 1,200 guests. This new class of mid-size cruise vessels will retain all the popular design elements and signature amenities of the line’s Marina and Riviera while adding many new luxury amenities and seeking to afford guests an additional level of comfort and convenience.
“We are excited to expand the Oceania Cruises fleet with our new Allura-Class ships to meet the strong demand for upscale culinary- and destination-focused cruise vacations around the globe,” said Frank Del Rio, president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd, in press materials. “This new class of ships will further elevate the already best-in-class guest experience at Oceania Cruises and meaningfully strengthen demand from both new and loyal returning guests.”
