Oceania Cruises has announced that its 1,250-passenger ship, Marina, will undergo an “all-encompassing refurbishment” in May 2024.
The work will include the addition three new dining options: Aquamar Kitchen, the new wellness-focused dining venue which debuted on Vista this year; an expanded poolside ice cream parlour, and a new casual al fresco trattoria.
In addition, private and public spaces will be refreshed.
All upper suites will be reimagined to become lighter and brighter, while the steakhouse Polo Grill will be enhanced with new carpet, window treatments and a fresh design of the dining chairs.
The Penthouse Suites will be completely refurbished with custom-crafted furniture as well as new closets and cabinetry to increase storage space, plus new carpets and upholstery, new lighting and restyled bathrooms.
Public spaces such as Martinis, Horizons, the Grand Dining Room and Library will also be updated.
Oceania Cruises ‘thrilled’ with new spaces coming to Marina
Oceania Cruises president Frank A. Del Rio said: “Marina is a ship designed by foodies, built by foodies, for foodies.
“We are renowned for serving the finest cuisine at sea, and this is not just a tagline, it is a mantra which we have built the business around.
“Food is the foundation of what we do on board each of our ships, and globally, in the destinations we visit.
“This refresh of Marina will see her updated to offer three exciting new dining venues.
“We are especially thrilled to expand the Aquamar Kitchen concept to Marina, following its incredible reception from guests since it was unveiled aboard Vista in May.”
Marina is the last of Oceania Cruises’ current fleet to be refurbished. The line’s eighth ship, Allura, is set to launch in spring 2025.
