Oceania Cruises has introduced its second Allura-class ship, Allura, which will be sister ship to Vista which sets sail this coming May.
Debuting in 2025, Allura is Oceania’s eighth vessel, and according to the cruise line has been “named to reflect the excitement of starting an immersive new journey.” She will be around 67,000 gross tons and accommodate 1,200 guests and 800 officers and crew.
The ship will feature a variety of new dining experiences including Ember, an upscale restaurant serving reimagined American classics as well as Aquamar Kitchen — both of which are also debuting on Vista in May. The ship will also include the largest standard staterooms for Oceania and a new Chef’s Studio space.
“At Oceania Cruises, we are always looking for ways to evolve, elevate and modernize our offerings to continuously surprise and delight our discerning guests as they enjoy immersive new experiences,” said Frank A. Del Rio, President of Oceania Cruises. “We are thrilled with the incredible demand we have witnessed for Allura‘s sister ship, Vista, with her 2023 maiden season already sold out, and we know Allura will be equally as popular with our guests.”
Allura is currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy. Details of her inaugural season, which will feature a variety of boutique destinations across Europe and the Americas, will be revealed this coming spring.
Bookings for Allura are scheduled to open this summer.
Allura‘s sister ship Vista will feature all-balcony cabins with bathrooms that have large vanities and oversized rain showers. It’ll also include a reimagined Martinis bar, the Horizons lounge with floor-to-ceiling windows, and an Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center complete with an outdoor spa terrace.
