Oceania Cruises’ Marina to undergo ‘all-encompassing’ refurb

Oceania Cruises’ Marina will undergo an “all-encompassing” refurbishment in May 2024.

Three new restaurant and dining options will be added to the 1,250-passenger ship, which the line described as being “designed by foodies, built by foodies, for foodies”.

Aquamar Kitchen, which was first introduced on new ship Vista, will serve wellness-inspired meals with smoothies, energy bowls and juices available at breakfast, and avocado toast, salads and wraps for lunch.

To stick with the wellness theme, the restaurant will serve non-alcoholic wines and mocktails.

In the evening, Waves Grill will turn into a new outdoor Italian restaurant serving pizza as well as dishes such as chicken wings, salads and focaccia with burrata.

An all-day ice cream parlour is being added to the pool deck which will also serve milkshakes and smoothies.

In addition to the new dining options, Marina’s private and public spaces will be refurbished, with Upper Suites made “lighter, brighter and seemingly more spacious,” the line said.

New furniture will be installed in Penthouse Suites as well as new carpets, upholstery, lighting, plugs and USB ports. The Penthouse Suite bathrooms will also be refurbished.

The ship will return to service on May 18, 2024.

President Frank Del Rio said: “We are renowned for serving the finest cuisine at sea and this is not just a tagline, it is a mantra which we have built the business around.

“Food is the foundation of what we do onboard each of our ships and in the destinations we visit.

“This refresh of Marina will see her updated to offer three exciting new dining venues. We are especially thrilled to expand the Aquamar Kitchen concept to Marina following its incredible reception from guests since it was unveiled aboard Vista in May.”
