Today Oceania Cruises announced that they’re going to be completely overhauling four of their ships as part of their OceaniaNEXT initiative.
The extensive enhancements have a $100 million budget, where each of the 684-guest vessels will be reimagined. Each will emerge from renovations with 342 new designer suites and staterooms and new décor in the restaurants, lounges, and bars – inspired by the line’s ports of call.
At the forefront of the refurbishment is Studio DADO, a Miami-based design and concept studio specializing in luxury residential and hospitality design.
Oceania’s two newest-built ships, Marina and Riviera, are the inspiration for the overhaul of the older ones, Regatta, Insignia, Nautica, and Sirena. They will include furnishings from Baker and Donghia and fabrics from Rubelli and Kravet in the public spaces. A new Grand Staircase will welcome guests onboard, and overhead a grand chandelier will feature pieces of smoked and hand-painted glass.
The Grand Dining Room will include soft cream leather dining chairs accented with metallic bronze and the room’s defining centerpiece will be a new crystal chandelier. The cocktail bar Martinis will receive a new color palette, inspired by the coastline of Santorini with deep blue, sienna, chocolate brown, and pewter.
Suites and Staterooms
Luxurious staterooms and suites will be lighter, brighter, and have even more space. They will be stripped down to the studs and reimagined with custom-crafted furnishings, exotic stone, polished wood finishes, and designer accessories.
USB ports will also be incorporated into every cabin, as well as a television system with movies on demand in multiple languages, live stations, a program guide, itinerary information, and weather updates.
The bathrooms haven’t been left out of the updates! Every fixture and surface will be new in bathrooms, with thoughtful lighting, glass shower enclosures, and designer features. Penthouse, Vista, and Owner’s Suite bathrooms will offer more space with Carrara marble, polished granite, and sleek onyx.
