(12:30 p.m. EST) -- Oceania Cruises has announced plans to build two new ships, including its first new-build in a decade. Fincantieri Shipyard (in Trieste, Italy) is scheduled to complete the 1,200-passenger vessels, the first in the Allura Class, in 2022 and 2025; Riviera was the line's last new-build launched in 2012.

According to a news release, Oceania's Allura Class "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."

The 67,000-ton Allura-class ships are slightly larger than the 66,000-ton O Class, but accommodate 50 less passengers. The ships will cost approximately 575 million euros apiece.

"This new class of ships will represent an evolution of the Oceania Cruises experience with all the elements our guests treasure -- a warm, intimate, residential-style; the most spacious standard staterooms afloat; amazing suites, and of course, the finest cuisine at sea," said Bob Binder, president and CEO of Oceania Cruises, in a news release.

"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 CEO of parent company Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.
