Currently slated for a 2025 launch, Oceania Cruises has revealed the sister for the new Vista.

The Allura, which will be the eighth vessel in Oceania’s fleet is currently under construction in Italy and set sail on her maiden voyage in Europe and the Americas.

She’ll be able to accommodate just 1,200 guests and be staffed with 800 officers and crew.

Allura highlights include an array of inventive new dining experiences including Ember, an upscale signature restaurant serving reimagined American classics, and Aquamar Kitchen, both debuting on Vista in May, as well as the largest standard staterooms and a new Chef’s Studio.

“At Oceania Cruises, we are always looking for ways to evolve, elevate and modernise our offerings to continuously surprise and delight our discerning guests as they enjoy immersive new experiences,” said Frank A. Del Rio, President of Oceania Cruises. “We are thrilled with the incredible demand we have witnessed for Allura’s sister ship, Vista, with her 2023 maiden season already sold out, and we know Allura will be equally as popular with our guests.

Mr Del Rio added, “Allura’s inaugural journeys are designed to appeal to all global travellers, whether they revel in the joy that comes with reconnecting with favourite destinations or are excited to discover new places and sights for the very first time.”

The launch of the new Allura Class vessels is a nod to Oceania’s expansion, with the launch of the Vista later this year, the first ship from the brand in 10 years.
