The Oceania Riviera refurbishment has been completed and images of the transformation have now been unveiled. The accommodation has been made over. There are brand new public spaces and reimagined menus.
The massive makeover is part of the multi-million dollar OceaniaNEXT program designed to refresh the fleet. Indeed, the Oceania Riviera refurbishment has seen almost every part of the cruise ship redecorated. There is even a brand new coffee bar.
In fact, the addition of the new Bar Istas lounge is one of the biggest changes. This lounge is located forward on deck 14 with panoramic 180-degree views of the ocean. It has comfortable armchairs and a wrap-around coffee bar. It is the perfect place to relax with an Illy Espresso coffee.
Both the Veranda and Concierge Staterooms were also redecorated during the Oceania Riviera refurbishment. They now sport a chic new decor in tones of espresso, caramel and ivory. It looks very smart.
But for a real treat I recommend one of the refreshed Oceania Riviera suites. In fact, your stay in a suite will be even sweeter with dedicated butler service and a range of other perks.
Guests in the biggest suites will enjoy an entirely redesigned space. As a matter of fact the Owner’s Suite looks spectacular, furnished exclusively with the Ralph Lauren Home Collection.
This suite has three rooms. There is a foyer large enough for a grand piano, bar and sofa. There is also a nautically themed living area and a sumptuous bedroom. Not to mention a wrap-around teak veranda with outdoor furniture.
The Masters Suite has also been redecorated. It is a blissful retreat with a new Cote D’Azure king-size bed, elegant suede chairs and dramatic nickel-trimmed lighting accents.
Bob Binder, President & CEO of Oceania Cruises, is understandably upbeat about the Oceania Riviera refurbishment. “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”, he said.
Oceania Cruises entire fleet will be progressively refurbished. Regatta is scheduled for refurbishment in September 2019.
