Oceania’s Marina sets sail on maiden voyage today

Marina, the first of Oceania Cruises’ purpose-built ships, sets sail on her maiden voyage today.

Following her arrival in Nassau at the end of a short three-day preview cruise for travel agents and the media, Marina departs on the first of two 18-day Panama Canal transits that visit San Francisco and San Diego, both new ports for Oceania.

Marina will then operate a 12-day Caribbean itinerary roundtrip from Miami, departing March 16, before sailing along the U.S. Eastern Seaboard and on to Europe to begin her inaugural Mediterranean season.

Marina’s ambition is to set new standards in comfort and service

Christened by Mary Hart, anchor of TV’s “Entertainment Tonight,” at the Port of Miami on Saturday, Marina joins the company’s there other vessels - Regatta, Insignia, and Nautica - all of which are smaller ships that were originally constructed for Renaissance Cruises.

“Marina is not just another ship, she is special in so many ways,” said Bob Binder, Oceania’s president. “When we set out to design and build our first new ship, we wanted it to set new standards for comfort, service and culinary excellence.”

Marina’s sister ship, Riviera, which is also being built by Fincantieri in Genoa, will be christened in April next year.
