Sisters of sophistication
Launched in May 2012, Marina, and her equally lovely sister ship Riviera, are two of the most beautiful cruise ships to grace the seas in the last half-century. Onboard both ships the luxury designer touch is evident everywhere. With fabulous owner's suites and special Ralph Lauren Home furnishings, and soaring Lalique Grand Staircases, Marina and Riviera embody the spirit of cruising the seas in luxury.
In grand company
At a comfortable mid-size, both ships have kept the charm of their consorts in the fleet - Nautica, Regatta and Insignia - and maintain that personal touch with high-quality service.
Marina and Riviera are purposefully designed for lovers of fine cuisine and unique experiences. There is a huge choice of dining options, including six gourmet restaurants with open-seating and zero surcharge.
Both ships are a wine-tasters heaven, with La Reserve by Wine Spectator providing pairings of food and wine for the most discerning palate. You can even bring life to your own culinary creations at the Appétit Culinary Center, learn fine art at Artists Loft, or smell and drink the coffee at the Baristas Coffee Bar.
Marina and Riviera offer many categories of accommodation, and all are incredibly spacious, with those finer touches, such as fabulous bathrooms, ambience and comfort. Both Marina and Riviera are very happy to welcome you aboard for your next grand adventure.

Oceania Cruises is a relative youngster when it comes to cruise line companies. Founded in 2002 by cruise industry veterans Frank Del Rio, Joe Watters and Bob Binder, Oceania Cruises fast grew to become one of the world’s largest upper premium cruise lines. The company is based around some pretty strong pillars:
• The Finest Cuisine at Sea™
• Destination Specialists
• Intimate and Luxurious Ships
These form the backbone of their five-star product and the six cruise lines in their fleet.
Oceania Cruises have become increasingly popular with seasoned travellers looking for that little bit extra on their cruise. With a wide range of diverse voyages, calling at over 330 ports worldwide, Oceania Cruises has grown into one of our most popular cruises lines.
The Oceania Cruises fleet is made up of six cruise lines. All of their cruise lines offer spacious and elegant accommodations from the more intimate 684-guest Regatta, Insignia, Nautica and Sirena to the larger 1,250-guest Marina and Riviera.
Each of the ships in the Oceania fleet oozes character and elegance. All six boast exquisite appointments and details of the kind you would expect to find on an exclusive estate. One thing that all Oceania Cruises has always been built on is the dining experience and this is central to any Oceania cruise. Dining onboard an Oceania cruise is done whenever, wherever and with whoever you like. With up to 6 open seating, gourmet restaurants to choose from including the famed Canyon Ranch cuisine, if you’re a food lover, then Oceania Cruises could be just the ticket.
The accommodation onboard matches the dining experience. Featuring rich Wenge wanly panelling and sumptuous residential furnishings, the rooms are comfortable and elegant in equal measures. The Marina and Riviera are the only two ships at sea to feature suites designed and furnished by Ralph Lauren Home and noted interior designer Dakota Jackson. Now that’s stylish.
