Oceania Cruises has unveiled OceaniaNEXT, its most extensive product and service enhancement initiative to-date, which will kick off with a US$100 million upgrade of its four 684-guest ships, Regatta, Insignia, Sirena and Nautica.
The upgrades will result in 342 new suites and staterooms in each ship, as well as new décor in the restaurants, lounges and bars, inspired by the line’s 450 ports of call.
Insignia will be the first to debut on December 7, followed by Sirena in May 2019, Regatta in September 2019 and Nautica in June 2020.
“OceaniaNEXT will be the most extensive and comprehensive suite of product and guest service enhancements that we have ever undertaken,” said Bob Binder, president and CEO of Oceania Cruises.
“The staterooms and suites are the most dramatic of the transformation,” said Yohandel Ruiz, founding partner of Studio DADO, a Miami-based design and concept studio helming the refurbishment work.
USB ports will also be incorporated in each of the staterooms, as well as a television system with movies on demand in multiple-languages, live stations and a programme guide, plus itinerary information and weather updates.
The Regatta-Class re-inspiration is the first in a line of announcements and enhancements to come in 2018, 2019 and beyond, according to Oceania Cruises.
