OCEANIA Cruises this morning announced a US$100 million refurbishment program for its four smaller vessels, promising the makeover will result in “better-than-new” ships.
The move is part of the NCLH brand’s OceaniaNEXT initiative, with ceo Bob Binder saying the re-inspiration of the Regatta-class ships will “set a new standard of style and elegance for small ship cruising”.
The first ship to debut with its new look will be Insignia on 07 Dec this year, followed by Sirena next May, Regatta in Sep 2019 and Nautica in Jun 2020.
The makeover includes stripping all staterooms and suites “down to their studs,” along with refurbished public spaces and technology upgrades including movies on demand, live TV and itinerary information.
