Oceania Cruises welcomes Allura to its Fleet

On 31 January 2023 Oceania Cruises announced the introduction of Allura, naming the second 1,200-guest Allura Class ship.

Debuting in 2025, Allura is the eighth vessel for the line and will be the sister ship to Vista, which will enter service in May 2023.

Oceania Cruises state: ‘Named to reflect the excitement of starting an immersive new journey, Allura will entice guests to discover some of the world’s most captivating locations, enjoying the freedom of exploration while sailing the open seas.

‘The luxurious new Allura will bring travellers a world of enchantment where new adventures, familiar faces, off-the-beaten-path destinations and more await.’

Frank A. Del Rio, President of Oceania Cruises, said: ‘We are thrilled with the incredible demand we have witnessed for Allura’s sister ship, Vista, with her 2023 maiden season already sold out, and we know Allura will be equally as popular with our guests.’

Oceania Cruises also state that Allura will serve the ‘Finest Cuisine at Sea’, with a personalised service for guests, and a ‘warm and welcoming staff’, and feature ‘captivating residential furnishings and décor’.

Measuring approximately 67,000 tons, Allura will accommodate 1,200 guests and be staffed by 800 officers and crew, offering industry-leading space and staff-to-guest ratios.

Allura highlights include an array of inventive new dining experiences including Ember, an upscale signature restaurant serving American classics, and Aquamar Kitchen, both debuting on Vista in May, as well as the largest standard staterooms and a new Chef’s Studio.

Currently under construction by shipbuilder Fincantieri SpA in Italy, the all-veranda vessel will sail her maiden voyage in spring 2025.

Details of Allura’s inaugural season, which will feature an intriguing array of marquee and boutique destinations across Europe and the Americas, will be revealed this spring before going on sale in the summer.
