Vista is the first Allura-class vessel to be completed for Oceania Cruises
Oceania Cruises has taken delivery of its newest ship, Vista, at Fincantieri's shipyard in Genoa, Italy.
The ship is the first Allura-class vessel to be completed for Oceania Cruises and introduces several new features in dining, accommodation, and guest experience. Vista weighs 67,000 tonnes and measures 791 feet in length. The ship can accommodate up to 1,200 guests and will operate with a service ratio of two staff members for every three guests.
Vista has 11 culinary venues, including three new concepts: Ember, a signature restaurant offering American cuisine; Aquamar Kitchen, which offers a wellness-themed menu; and The Bakery at Baristas, which serves freshly baked pastries. Vista also has an elevated mixology programme with specialty cocktails. Guests can watch Broadway-style productions that feature recognisable songs and contemporary dance numbers led by Dancing with the Stars choreographer Britt Stewart.
“Today we usher in a new era for Oceania Cruises with the delivery of Vista,” said Frank A. Del Rio, president of Oceania Cruises. “We could not have built such an exceptional ship without the close partnership enjoyed with Fincantieri. We thank each and every person who had a hand in bringing her to life. From the smallest of design details to the largest per capita galley at sea, Vista is a marvel that will be enjoyed by guests for decades to come.”
Vista will be christened by her godmother, chef, author, restaurateur, and Emmy award-winning food personality Giada De Laurentiis, on 8 May 2023 in a ceremony in Valletta, Malta. The christening will begin at 21:00 CEST and will be live streamed for anyone who wishes to join.
The ship will then sail to Canada and New England before heading south for a series of winter itineraries exploring the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America.
