Oceania Cruises is introducing Vista, the first of two new 1,200-guest Allura Class ships. The vessels are being constructed by renowned Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri S.p.A. The luxury ship, the seventh for the line, will set sail in 2023, followed by a sister ship in 2025.
With a name to reflect the dawn of a new age in travel, Vista will exemplify all the hallmarks of the Oceania Cruises experience that guests have come to expect. Vista will deliver The Finest Cuisine at Sea, exceptionally personalized 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 is an innovative and ever-evolving brand. We are always looking over the horizon, and Vista represents our view to the future,” stated Bob Binder, President & CEO of Oceania Cruises.
Uniquely designed public spaces
Guests can expect to be wowed by the dramatic and glamorous public spaces such as The Grand Dining Room, which soars almost two decks in height and pays homage to the “beautiful age” of early 20th-century Parisian society through its contemporary interpretation of Belle Époque.
Vista features a wide variety of social, recreation, and wellness spaces oriented across six of the ship’s 11 guest decks. A mixture of both grand and cozy spaces presents guests with a room for every mood and purpose, whether one seeks an intimate getaway spot to enjoy a quiet read, a tony bar for evening cocktails, or to dance the night away with newfound friends.
The Grand Staircase: a welcome unlike any other
An iconic element of the Oceania Cruises brand, The Grand Staircase is where every new Oceania Cruises journey begins. Sleek curves and elegant details define the grandest of beginnings. A glistening floor-to-ceiling pillar of crystal and light sets the tone for the ship and the guest experience.
Martinis: a classic transformed
So much more than the name conveys, the reimagined Martinis bar is a true destination aboard Vista. Convivial gathering spaces are nestled among walls of shimmering glass, and custom sculptural lighting casts a warm glow over the heart of the bar. Sophistication, glamour, and elegance serve as a backdrop for extraordinary evenings.
The Grand Lounge: gatherings made glamorous
Evoking the feeling of a private club, The Grand Lounge features sleek alcoves enhanced by a gold-infused color palette, sculptural lighting, and elegant lines. It’s a relaxing yet elegant lounge that invites guests to unwind before an unforgettable dinner or enjoy a nightcap with fellow explorers.
Casino + Casino Bar: an exciting escape
Layers of luxury come to life through the golden grandeur and art nouveau-inspired touches in Vista’s elegantly evolved Casino. The energized excitement is palpable in this enclave designed for those drawn to exciting games of chance and skill as well as those simply seeking a refined space to enjoy a cocktail.
Horizons: a view of the world
Conjuring a world of possibilities, the dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows and inspiring silhouettes in Horizons celebrate the journey. Guests will be awed by sweeping 180-degree views whether they’re sharing travel stories over Afternoon Tea, taking in sights along the way, or enjoying a lively musical performance.
Pool Deck: a tranquil oasis
Mirroring the beauty of the surrounding sea, the Pool Deck creates the perfect onboard escape. Guests may revel in the solitude of a uniquely modern beach-club cabana, go for a refreshing swim, or gather with friends poolside. The variety of textures and soothing natural tones come together in a natural oasis to reconnect with nature.
Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center: a luxurious sanctuary
Dedicated to a personal journey of well-being, the Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center offers a host of tranquil treatment areas, state-of-the-art workout and personal training spaces as well as a spacious new salon and barbershop. The indulgent spa terrace with sweeping sea views confirms that rejuvenation guided every aspect of our first purpose-built holistic wellness center.
Vista is currently under construction by Fincantieri S.p.A. in Italy. The new ship will sail her first commercial voyage in early 2023. Measuring approximately 67,000 gross registered tons, the ship will accommodate 1,200 guests and be staffed by 800 officers and crew, offering industry-leading space and staff-to-guest ratios. An unnamed sister ship will debut in 2025.
