Oceania Cruises has just unveiled plans to overhaul its four Regatta-class ships as part of a $100 million refurbishment led by Miami-based design and concept studio Studio DADO.
Each vessel– Insignia, Sirena, Regatta and Nautica– will be given 342 new designer suites and staterooms plus restaurants, lounges and bars. Even the bars will be kitted-out with new décor.
Insignia will return to service on December 7th this year whilst Sirena will re-appear in May 2019, Regatta in September 2019 and Nautica in June 2020.
Bernard Carter, Oceania’s senior vice-president and managing director for Europe and the Middle East, said: “2018 is a landmark year for us– the brand has evolved.
It is time for the next stage of our renovation. We think it is time to move the Regatta-class on to the next level. We are moving the ships on from being like a twee English hotel to a country club. Lifestyles and places are changing.”
Oceania has confirmed that every surface of every suite and stateroom will be entirely new, while all public spaces will boast a refreshed colour palette of soft sea and sky tones.
Guests will also be faced with a tasteful renewal of fabrics, furnishings and lighting fixtures that perfectly depicts the inimitable style and comfort the line is proud to be known for.
Each ship will celebrate a revamp, from the bejewelled new chandeliers in the famous Grand Dining Room to the calming Canyon Ranch Spa.
President and chief executive of Oceania Cruises, Bob Binder, said: “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.”
Oceania have also revealed details of the next exciting chapter for the line, in the form of OceaniaNEXT.
It includes an array of dramatic and transformational enhancements that will elevate virtually every facet of the Oceania guest experience.
Every aspect of the Oceania onboard experience will be enhances, from re-imagined menus and carefully crafted new dining experiences to the re-inspiration of the Regatta-Class ships.
Bernard Carter has confirmed that there is no plans for a new-build ship for the line and has confirmed that OceaniaNext is “a totally separate” project to any discussions about new hardware.
