Oceania Cruises have officially taken delivery of their newest and most luxurious vessel, Vista.

Indeed, it is an entirely new design which is known as Allura-class. The 67,000 tonne vessel can accommodate 1,200 guests in elegant suites and spacious staterooms. In fact, Vista boasts the largest standard rooms at sea.

“Today we usher in a new era for Oceania Cruises with the delivery of Vista. From the smallest of design details to the largest per capita galley at sea, Vista is a marvel that will be enjoyed by guests for decades to come.”

Frank A. Del Rio, President of Oceania Cruises.

Accommodation on Vista

Although it is a new design, Vista will feel familiar to loyal Oceania guests. All the most popular suite categories are available; including Owner’s, Vista, Oceania and Penthouse Suites. As you’d expect, the suites are all spacious havens filled with luxurious finishes, not to mention English butler service.

The delivery of Vista will see the debut of new Concierge Level Solo Staterooms, as well as a new French Veranda Stateroom category. This new entry-level room type has a small juliet-style balcony rather than a full veranda.

Dining on Vista

Oceania’s new Vista boasts no fewer than eight dining venues. There is The Grand Dining Room, as well as the Polo Grill, the Italian inspired Toscana and the outstanding Red Ginger restaurant.
