"Marina" to be 1st Oceania-class Ship

Some of Oceania Cruises’ most loyal past guests were on hand as the first piece of steel was ceremoniously cut to officially begin construction of Oceania Cruises’ first brand-new ship at the Fincantieri’s Sestre Ponente Shipyard in Genoa, Italy. During the ceremony, Frank Del Rio, Chairman of Prestige Cruise Holdings, Oceania Cruises’ parent company revealed the name of the first ship as Marina along with design details of the Veranda Staterooms and Penthouse Suites.

“Oceania Club members, our loyal repeat guests, are not only responsible for Oceania Cruises’ success, they have also played a great role in the design and development of these splendid new ships,” stated Del Rio.

After the ceremony, Oceania Club members were invited to tour their future homes at sea—the builder’s mock-ups of the Veranda Staterooms and Penthouse Suites. These accommodations, which are on average, 50% larger than those on the Regatta-class ships, will set new standards for spaciousness and comfort.
