The MS Riviera recently completed her dry-dock in Marseille, France and has emerged looking immaculate with the exclusively-designed Ralph Lauren furnishings in the Owner’s Suites.
The refurbishment is part of Oceania Cruises OceaniaNEXT program and the most dramatic change on board can be found at the all-new coffee bar area in addition to the new lounge with sweeping sea views on Deck 14. This is in addition to the refreshed public areas and cabins.
“With the evolution of OceaniaNEXT, this was a great opportunity to not just enhance the guest experience aboard Riviera, but to elevate it through the addition of surprising new elements,” stated Bob Binder, President & CEO of Oceania Cruises.
The coffee bar is furnished with bold accents of gold and high-gloss ebony and white marble. The new Bar Istas lounge is the perfect place to relax in quietude or enjoy lively conversation over a bespoke illy coffee creation, says the line.
The lounge also has a brand-new gleaming silver Victoria Arduino espresso machine – the reputed “Rolls Royce of Coffee”.
Riviera’s 200 Concierge and 244 Veranda staterooms, along with the 124 Penthouse Suites also radiate a stylish new air with refreshed interiors inspired by the Insignia and Sirena.
Retaining the warmth and charm they’re renowned for, the lustrous walnut panelling and upholstered headboards are now offset with tones of Espresso, Caramel, and Ivory in the new carpeting and fabrics.
The Riviera also features the refurbished Owner’s Suites furnished exclusively with the Ralph Lauren Home Collection.
Guests now enter through the foyer with a limestone and black cabochon inset floor, walls of inset Georgian wood panelling, and a mahogany and quartzite bar.
The spacious and airy room features dramatic sea-views from floor-to-ceiling windows dressed with Ralph Lauren Home Grimaldi-weave sail fabric, along with a self-playing ebony piano that provides the perfect interlude for in-suite entertaining.
Similar enhancements will be carried out on Riviera’s sister-ship Marina, in May 2020.
