Marina

New ship Marina is in an Oceania-class of her own

Marina, the first of Oceania Cruises' new 1,258-guest Oceania-class ships, represented an evolution of the line's extremely popular Regatta-Class ships swhen she arrived in January 2011

Since the inception of Oceania Cruises, its ships have delivered an many indulgences that relate directly to their ideal mid-size - a tradition that Marina will continue, but in an even more refined incarnation.

Marina, the first of three purpose-built Oceania-class ships, boasts an array of elegant bars and lounges and ten dining venues - six of which are open-seating gourmet restaurants - including Jacques, the first restaurant at sea for Chef Jacques Pépin.

Other highlights include a Bon Appetit Culinary Center, Owner’s Suites exclusively furnished with Ralph Lauren Home, a Grand Stairway and lobby area custom-crafted by Lalique and a full-service Canyon Ranch SpaClub and fitness center.

While larger than her consorts Regatta, Insignia and Nautica, Marina remains comfortably mid-size, utilising the additional space for even greater amenities. She rewards guests with the line’s signature cuisine in six restaurants, including two new gourmet venues - Jacques and Red Ginger.

Her new Yacht Club holds enlightening wine and food pairings. For special coffees and snacks, there is Biscottos Coffee Bar. The new Bon Appétit Culinary Center offers hands-on cooking instruction under the guidance of master chefs.

Similarly, artists-in-residence teach fine arts in The Studio, a new enrichment center. Intimate lounges abound. Accommodations in every category are incredibly spacious, especially with regard to the lavish bathrooms.

Yet, despite so many additions, the onboard ambiance and experience remains comfortably familiar. But Oceania has endeavoured to raise the bar even higher.
