Oceania Cruises has taken delivery of its latest ship, Vista, at a ceremony at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Genoa, Italy.

The line’s first Allura-class vessel includes “several firsts in the realms of dining, accommodation and guest experience”, according to a statement.

The 1,200-guest ship features the “most spacious standard staterooms at sea”, as well as three new dining concepts and will operate with a service ratio of two staff members for every three guests.

Vista will be christened on 8 May in a ceremony in Valletta, Malta, by its godmother, the Italian-American chef, author, restaurateur and Emmy Award-winning food personality Giada De Laurentiis.

After a summer season in the Mediterranean, the ship will sail to Canada and New England before heading south for a series of winter itineraries exploring the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America.

‘A new era’ for Oceania Cruises

Oceania Cruises president Frank A Del Rio said: “Today we usher in a new era for Oceania Cruises with the delivery of Vista.

“We could not have built such an exceptional ship without the close partnership enjoyed with Fincantieri.

“We thank each and every person who had a hand in bringing her to life. 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.”

Oceania Cruises also recently named its second Allura-class ship.

The 1,200-guest Allura is currently under construction in Italy and will sail its maiden voyage in spring 2025.
