2023 will be an extraordinary year for Oceania Cruises in many ways. The world-renowned cruise line celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and continues its mission to deliver the ultimate in luxury with first-class ships and facilities. Not only will the all-new Vista cruise ship enter service in 2023, but the Riviera has also undergone a complete makeover, culminating in luxuriously appointed staterooms and suites, not to mention the magnificent Grand Dining Room. The luxury cruise line is poised for the future and is further expanding its innovative collection with the introduction of the five-star first-class ship Allura in spring 2025.

Riviera, the evolution of perfection

The fully renovated Riviera offers an unprecedented level of luxury and elegance. Refurbished from top to bottom, all staterooms and suites exude a warm and sophisticated ambience, from the redesigned Italian marble bathrooms to the highest quality fabrics and furnishings, all enriched with designer accents that exude the characteristic Oceania Cruises class. With 27 m2, the veranda cabins are also the most spacious standard cabins at sea.

The Riviera's public spaces have also been re-inspired. The lounges, bars and ambient restaurants have been elegantly redecorated, taking the social and dining experience to an even higher level. With its glittering chandelier, plush carpeting and luxurious leather chairs, the Grand Dining Room exudes a new sense of grandeur. The outdoor dining experience has also been completely revamped with a charming Trattoria where you can enjoy wood-fired pizzas, succulent grilled Italian specialties and the most delicious desserts.

The Riviera, better than ever, will sail to Asia for the first time in its history, where 25 unique voyages are planned, ranging from 10 to 82 days, focused on cultural immersion and culinary excellence.

Oceania Cruises is excited to introduce the Allura, an impressive new five-star ship that will set sail for the very first time in spring 2025. The introduction of the Allura follows the acclaimed launch of sister ship Vista in May 2023, and brings the premium shipping line's total fleet to eight first-class ships. Renowned Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri will build the ship, which can accommodate 1,200 guests. The name Allura reflects the excitement at the start of a new journey, the lure of mystery and the unknown. The luxury ship symbolizes the entire identity of Oceania Cruises and offers an unparalleled cruise experience.

In accordance with the tradition of Oceania Cruises, the Allura will serve the most refined gastronomy at sea. The décor is tasteful and guests enjoy the highest level of attentive and personalized service. With two crew members for every three passengers, Allura exceeds all expectations in service. Highlights of the new ship include a series of innovative new restaurants such as the Aquamar Kitchen, which offers tasty and healthy dishes, and the deluxe Ember restaurant, which serves up American classics revisited. As usual on other ships, all restaurants are always all-you-can-eat with no surcharge. The spacious and thoughtfully designed staterooms and suites onboard are also a major asset of the Allura.

In the spring of 2023, Allura's inaugural season will be unveiled with an extraordinary array of established and boutique destinations, spanning the splendor of the historic cities of the Mediterranean and the charms of the vast mosaic of the Americas.

20 years of luxury at sea

In 2023, Oceania Cruises will celebrate its 20th anniversary. During these 20 years, Oceania Cruises has succeeded in becoming the world's largest premium cruise line, positioning itself as the absolute favorite for travelers seeking fine dining and in-depth, enriching destination experiences. To celebrate this milestone, the cruise line is offering a first-of-its-kind gift to its passengers: up to $800 in onboard credit per cabin or suite on 110 exciting voyages, valid through the end of February.
