Oceania Marina graced Sydney Harbour for the first time yesterday on her inaugural voyage to Australia from Auckland.
Docked at the Overseas Passenger Terminal until Friday 15 March, she will welcome new guests today heading on a “Jewels of the Pacific” 25-night French Polynesia cruise via New Zealand.
Dubbed the ship that offers “elegance without pretention”,Oceania Marina features the first hands-on cooking school at sea, the ‘Bon Appétit Culinary Centre’, the first namesake restaurant at sea of Master Chef Jacques Pépin, the first Lalique crystal grand stairway, original Picasso artworks, Swarovski crystal accents and an avid attention to detail.
