Oceania Cruises has a new member of its family – the 1200 guest Vista.

Vista had its float out ceremony in Fincantieri Shipyard in Sestri Ponenante Italy, bordering on the seaport of Genoa.

Shortly after the ribbon was cut, Vista took out from the shipyard and began sailing the seas for the first time.

Vista will enjoy her maiden voyage on April 14, 2023, when she sails from Rome to Barcelona, before setting off on 12 further itineraries across Europe, then making a move to the United States, New England, the Panama Canal and the Caribbean.

On Vista you can expect 12 options for dining, including four new eateries, 800 crew members for 1200 guests and the most spacious standard Staterooms at sea at more than 26 square metres, all with large bathrooms and rainforest showers.

Vista even boasta Owner’s Suites and a top-of-the-ship library styled exclusively in Ralph Lauren home.

As far as entertainment and activities go, there are eight bars, lounge and entertainment venues, as well as a spa and vitality centre,

Howard Sherman, President and CEO of Oceania Cruises said: “Vista is Oceania Cruises’ most anticipated ship in the history of our company, and I am thrilled to be here with our partners from Fincantieri as the ship morphs from blueprints and steel to into reality. Vista is truly a ship of dreams, and we cannot wait to welcome her inaugural season guests next year.”

Luigi Matarazzo, General Manager of the Merchant Ships Division of Fincantieri, said: “Ten years have passed since we delivered Riviera to our friends of Oceania Cruises, from the same Sestri shipyard.

The launch of this new ship therefore represents an important milestone not only of her construction, but also in the consolidation of the relationship with the shipping company. I am sure that Vista will give life to a new class of ships that will stand out for its refinement and technological advances”.
