In March 2021, Oceania Cruises announced plans for a seventh vessel, the Allura-class Vista. Vista is currently under construction at Fincantieri’s Sestri Ponente shipyard in Italy, where the line’s Riviera and Marina were also built, and is set to debut on May 13, 2023, with a sailing from Rome (Civitavecchia) to Venice.
The 1,200-passenger Vista will be joined by an as-yet-unnamed second ship in 2025 and follow the same upmarket hallmarks that Oceania has become known for, including fine cuisine that is likely to see partnerships with top chefs and sommeliers and food and wine pairing dinners overseen by the line’s executive culinary director Jacques Pepin.
Vista will offer a total of 10 dining venues, including the glamorous Grand Dining Room, a (almost) two-deck restaurant that will take inspiration from early 20th-century Parisian society.
The 67,000-ton Vista will carry 800 crew, with two crewmembers to every three passengers.
