“Elegance… luxury… uncompromised quality. These are the hallmarks of the Oceania Cruises onboard experience our guests have come to appreciate and expect as we’ve travelled the world together.” - Bob Binder, President and CEO
Oceania announced this week that their four Regatta-Class ships, Regatta, Insignia, Nautica and Sirena will undergo a complete refit, bringing them in line with the Oceania-Class ships. Every surface of every suite and stateroom will be entirely new, while in the public spaces, a refreshed colour palette of soft sea and sky tones will surround a tasteful renewal of fabrics, furnishings and lighting fixtures.
The cruise line’s new programme OceaniaNEXT, an ambitious initiative that aims to enhance every aspect of the Oceania Cruises experience, will elevate virtually every facet of the Oceania Cruises, from the dramatic re-design on the iconic Regatta-Class ships, to thoughtfully crafted new dining experiences and reimagined menus. Throughout the process of transformation, Oceania Cruises insists that one thing will remain the same: their trademark warm and personalised service, with 400 staff to serve only 684 guests.
The design team always have guest experience at the heart of their process and believe that artful and thoughtful design results in comfort, celebration and unexpected delight. The intimate and elegant bars, lounges and public spaces, each with its own unique style and character, will be as warm and inviting as ever. Whether you seek spaces for quiet contemplation with a view of the sea, or to drink, laugh and converse with like-minded travellers, there will be a perfect space to suit your mood.
Oceania Cruises’ commitment to culinary excellence begins with sourcing premium artisanal ingredients from around the world and selecting chefs from the world’s best restaurants. The Grand Dining Room will radiate a renewed sense of grandeur, with touches of elegance and sophistication creating a worthy stage to experience the luxury of cuisine renowned as the finest at sea.
A twinkle of elegance and comfortable sophistication will refine our dining venues, creating worthy stages for The Finest Cuisine at Sea. Imagine sipping an aperitif in the restyled Grand Bar and then sinking into buttery-soft dining chairs in The Grand Dining Room, where a renewed sense of grandeur radiates from the glistening chandelier and plush carpets.
Lighter, brighter and even more spacious, every suite and stateroom on board will contain custom-crafted furnishings, exotic stone and polished wood finishes and designer accessories. Every square inch of the transformed accommodations will be new and subtle shades of sea and sky will create a restful atmosphere. Every suite and stateroom will feature luxurious new bathrooms with designer fixtures, lavish vanities and sleek glass shower enclosures. Moreover, Oceania are fitting each stateroom with brand new storage to make the most of the space.
