Oceania Cruises has announced that it will accelerate the debut of its new ship Vista by introducing a new Founder’s Cruise departing from Rome on May 13, 2023, and sailing to Venice. Vista had been scheduled to debut on May 20, 2023, but unprecedented demand for the ship’s inaugural season has now driven the maiden voyage forward by a week. 

“Vista has been driving exceptional demand from the moment we first revealed her inaugural voyages. With all of her maiden season voyages sold out or on waitlist status, we are introducing an additional voyage to satisfy that exceptional demand,” stated Howard Sherman, President and CEO of Oceania Cruises.

The new Founder’s Cruise will be hosted by Oceania Cruises’ Founder Frank J. Del Rio in celebration of the new ship and to commemorate the brand’s 20th anniversary. Sailing from Rome, travelers will experience enthralling explorations of the most illustrious and alluring destinations in Italy, Greece, and Croatia, punctuated by exclusive celebrations, inaugural cocktail receptions, and other special events. Guests joining this inaugural voyage will be among the very first to experience Vista and her stunning interiors, harmonious public spaces, imaginative new dining and mixology concepts, and new standards for residential-style luxury, including the most spacious standard staterooms at sea.
