Oceania Cruises is to christen the first of its two new Allura-class ships Vista when she debuts in 2023.

Currently under construction at Fincantieri’s Sestri Ponente shipyard in Italy, the 67,000gt Vista will accommodate 1,200 guests and 800 crew members and will be the seventh vessel to join the Oceania Cruises fleet.

According to Oceania Cruises, Vista’s name reflects the “dawn of a new age in travel” and the “unique vision” of the company’s officers and crew members who played a “pivotal role” in designing the vessel.

“Our officers and crew are always bringing great new ideas to the forefront and then implementing them,” said Bob Binder, president and CEO of Oceania Cruises. “More than any other part of the Oceania Cruises organisation, we owe our success to our onboard teams. They are the ones who made Vista possible, and it is a credit to them, these true visionaries of the seven seas, that we name the ship for them, in their honour.”

Onboard highlights will include spacious “residentially-inspired” suites and staterooms, as well as luxurious public spaces such as The Grand Dining Room, which will be almost two decks high and offer a contemporary interpretation of La Belle Époque (early 20th-century Parisian society). In addition, the vessel will offer nine other culinary experiences, including several “unique firsts” for the brand.

“Oceania Cruises is an innovative and ever-evolving brand,” said Binder. “We are always looking over the horizon, and Vista represents our view to the future.”

The second Allura-class vessel will debut in 2025.
