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.
