Oceania Cruises has announced a new enhancement initiative.

OceaniaNEXT will begin with a $100 million renovation project for the line’s four 684-guest ships (Regatta, Insignia, Sirena, and Nautica). Each will emerge with new suites and staterooms, as well as new d├ęcor in dining venues and other public spaces.

Insignia will debut its new look on December 7, 2018. Sirena will follow in May 2019, then Regatta in September 2019 and Nautica in June 2020.

[post_ads]“OceaniaNEXT will be the most extensive and comprehensive suite of product and guest service enhancements that we have ever undertaken,” said Bob Binder, president and CEO of Oceania Cruises. “Our Regatta-Class ships are like second homes to our loyal guests and travel partners. They don’t build ships like these anymore, which is why this re-inspiration project is such an important milestone in our company’s 15-year history. We are maintaining the intimate surroundings and personal attention that our guests love, while at the same time setting a new standard of style and elegance for small ship cruising. We have opened a new chapter, innovating in every way as we look to the future and the way our guests want to travel. We can’t wait for our ‘new’ ships to launch.”

Miami-based design and concept firm Studio DADO is leading the project.

“The moment we stepped onboard, we were impressed by the ambiance and attention to detail,” said Yohandel Ruiz, founding partner of Studio DADO. “The guests we spoke with kept telling us how dearly they loved the ships, so it was important that we kept the intimacy and warmth in the redesign. What we landed on provides a modern and airy atmosphere, similar to what you would find in an elegant estate home.”

Enhancements to the four ships include new furnishings, fabrics, and custom-milled carpets. A new grand staircase and chandelier adorned with hand-painted glass will welcome guests aboard. The Grand Dining Room will feature new cream leather dining chairs.

Staterooms will be stripped to their studs and completely renovated with polished woods, stones, and custom furnishings. All bathroom fixtures and surfaces will be replaced. Penthouse, Vista, and Owner’s Suites will feature Carrara marble, polished granite, and onyx.

“The staterooms and suites are the most dramatic of the transformation,” added Ruiz. “They now feature a very clean design with a sophisticated air. Enhanced by nuanced shades of the sea and sky, the tones are warm and soothing, incorporating silvery greys and greens alongside vivid sapphires and taupes.”

The Regatta-Class renovation is the first of several enhancements to the Oceania fleet expected in 2018, 2019, and beyond.
