Oceania Cruises which is a luxury cruise line will invest $100 Million to dramatically re-inspire four cruise ships. The “OceniaNEXT” program will upgrade the Regatta-Class vessels starting towards the end of 2018.
Oceania Cruises has announced a new program where $100 Million will be invested into upgrading four luxury Regatta-Class ships The four ships to be upgraded are Regatta, Insignia, Sirena, and Nautica, they will be better than new. Once the ships have been re-inspired they will have 342 brand new designer suites and staterooms, and stunning new décor in the restaurants, lounges and bars, all inspired by the line’s 450 ports of call.
Bob Binder, President and CEO of Oceania Cruises, said:
“OceaniaNEXT will be the most extensive and comprehensive suite of product and guest service enhancements that we have ever undertaken.”
“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.”
Insignia will be the first to debut on December 7, 2018, followed by Sirena in May 2019, Regatta in September 2019, and Nautica in June 2020. Each ship will be totally overhauled with new decor where interior spaces will be completely reimagined. The public space upgrades include new staircases, carpets, chairs and just about everything else you can think of!
