Oceania Cruises, recently unveiled the recently renovated Oceania Sirena. After a top-to-bottom upgrade as part of the $100 million OceaniaNEXT initiative, Oceania Sirena boasts 342 completely new staterooms and suites along with dramatically transformed public spaces.
Sirena also debuted some additional refinements above and beyond what was done to the Oceania Insignia, the first of six ships to undergo the upgrade process:
- Brand-new entry doors for all suites and staterooms
- Full-length mirrors in all suites and staterooms
- Additional 100-volt sockets on each side of the bed in all accommodations
- New wall sconces in the Spa
- Additional crystal chandeliers in the public spaces and stair lobbies
Topping off the awe-inspiring transformation of the Sirena are elements of Oceania’s multi-million-dollar art collection that are unique personal expressions and emblematic of the brand’s very personal nature. Artwork includes a piece by Jacques Pépin, the cruise line’s Executive Culinary Director. Hanging in the re-styled Bar Istas, the ship’s social hub and coffee bar, the piece is an original and was specially commissioned for the Sirena.
Jacques Pépin’s daughter Claudine, is the Godmother to the Sirena.
