Oceania Cruises to revamp two more ships

Oceania Cruises is set to revamp its Riviera and Marina ships over the next 18 months.

Every cabin on the 1,210-passenger ships will be “reimagined” and public spaces will receive “a refreshed colour palette”, the line said.

The cabins will receive new furniture, expanded bathrooms and new lighting. The line said there would be an “abundance” of USB ports so that they were “always within reach”.

The Grand Bar on the ships will be overhauled and a trattoria restaurant will be added to both vessels, offering Italian speciality dishes including wood-fired pizzas.

Riviera will return to service with a 16-day Mediterranean, Atlantic and Caribbean cruise from Rome to Miami departing on December 7, 2022.

From Miami, Riviera will operate seven and 14-day Caribbean sailings before returning to Europe in late March 2023.

Marina (pictured) will resume operations on November 13, 2023, with a seven-day cruise from Barcelona to Lisbon.

The ship will start its South America season on December 3, 2023.

President and chief executive Howard Sherman said: “At Oceania Cruises, we continue to raise the bar and elevate the guest experience at every opportunity.

“Whether it’s innovative new culinary concepts, immersive new destination experiences, or presenting our guests with ships that are not just better, but better than new, Oceania Cruises sets the standard by which others are judged.”

The line’s 2024 itineraries will be released “in the coming weeks”, the line said.
