Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings’ luxury cruise line, Oceania Cruises, has unveiled new details about its two newest ships, which will be built by Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri.
During the cruise line’s unveiling of Vista, they unveiled its lounges, bars, and wellness facilities. The vessel is the first of two ships that will be built by the cruise line.
When released in 2023, Vista will be one of the world’s most luxurious and comfortable ships. As many as six of the eleven decks will be available for passenger use for the 1,200 passengers on board the 67,000-ton ship, including spaces for socializing, recreation, and wellness.
According to Bob Binder, the President & CEO of Oceania Cruises, the vessel has been designed with luxury and exploration in mind:
“Our guests have a passion for new experiences and destinations while also loving to travel to familiar places and seeing them from new directions. That drove every aspect of designing Vista, to present a sense of familiarity imbued with unique elements and fresh perspectives.”
The vessel provides both big, spacious areas and cosy, quiet areas which are equally suitable for everyone. The deck of the pool is a good example of this. Oceania’s pool deck has been designed with tranquillity in mind; most cruise lines will go overboard with slides and action-packed fun.
There is a luxury sunbed, a pool bar, as well as a jacuzzi and a poolside cabana for guests to relax on.
If you want to cruise Oceania’s newest addition, you’ll have to wait a while longer. The first voyage of Vista will take place in early 2023. Additionally, the cruise line plans to launch a sister ship to Vista in 2025, built by Fincantieri S.p.A. He will build both ships in Italy, and cruises will go on sale later this year, in September 2021.
In the upcoming weeks, the cruise line plans to reveal more about the new ship, including the onboard restaurants and suites.
For those who cannot wait for the newest arrival, Oceania will also start operating cruises later this year.
Currently, the cruise line only has Marina scheduled for August. Marina is the first vessel to take to the sea since the line ceased operations last year. Marina will sail in the Baltic Sea on a cruise that departs from Copenhagen and sails to Stockholm.
Rostock in Germany, Tallinn, Estonia, St. Petersburg, Russia, Helsinki, Finland, and more are some of the ports of call. Next, the vessel will head down to Southern Europe on cruises to Amsterdam and Lisbon, calling at ports in the UK, Ireland, France, Spain, and Portugal.
Insignia will depart for the cruise line in June of next year, and she will be the company’s next ship. As of right now, it is unclear whether the cruise line will add winter itineraries soon. However, you can keep an eye on Tourtelegraph for more updates.
