New vessels to be delivered in 2022 and 2025.
Oceania Cruises has this morning announced an order for two new ships from Fincantieri.
Accommodating about 1,200 guests each, the new class of mid-size vessels will retain all the warmth, popular design elements and signature amenities of Oceania’s Marina and Riviera “while affording guests an additional level of comfort, convenience and many new luxury amenities,” according to Oceania President and CEO, Bob Binder.
“This new class of ships will represent an evolution of the Oceania Cruises experience with all the elements our guests treasure – a warm, intimate, residential style; the most spacious standard staterooms afloat; amazing suites, and of course, the finest cuisine and sea,” Binder said.
Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings CEO Frank Del Rio said the new class of ships would further elevate the Oceania Cruises experience “and meaningfully strengthen demand from both new and loyal returning guests, which will ultimately drive further returns for shareholders”.
The contract price for each of the two vessels is approximately €575 million per ship.
