Oceania Cruises has placed an order for two new ships from Fincantieri S.p.A. The ships, part of Oceania’s new Allura-class, will be delivered in 2022 and 2025. Fincantieri is one of the world’s largest shipbuilding groups and a leader in cruise ship design and construction.
The two 67,000 gross ton Allura-Class ships will each accommodate approximately 1,200 guests. The new class of mid-size cruise vessels will retain all the warmth, popular design elements, and signature amenities of the line’s award-winning Marina and Riviera, while affording guests an additional level of comfort, convenience and many new luxury amenities.
“We are excited to expand the Oceania Cruises fleet with our new Allura-Class ships to meet the strong demand for upscale culinary- and destination-focused cruise vacations around the globe,” said Frank Del Rio, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.
With the introduction of the two new Allura-class ships, Oceania’s fleet will increase to eight. Insignia recently emerged from drydock after receiving extensive enhancements as part of OceaniaNEXT, Oceania’s $100+ million renovation project. The remaining three Regatta-class ships are on schedule to receive their enhancements in 2019 and 2020.
