Oceania’s Marina debuted in 2011 and has since become one of the most sophisticated ships over the past 50 years. As the sister ship to the Riviera, it features several designer touches throughout. You’ll see it as you walk up the Lalique Grand Staircase, or when you sleep in the Owner’s Suite, a room outfitted with Ralph Lauren Home.
Built for 1,250 people, the Marina is a mid-sized ship with a country club atmosphere. Beyond Oceania’s features like the Canyon Ranch Spa, personal service enhances this feel as the ship travels across the world. Itineraries currently include the Mediterranean, South America, the South Pacific, transatlantic voyages, and world cruises.
As you go about your cruise, take advantage of multiple, diverse dining choices, Oceania’s artist-in-residence program at the Artists Loft, and the several relaxation options.
The Marina’s accommodations begin with the Penthouse Suites, which feature 420 square feet with a luxurious bed, entertainment options, butler service, and stunning views. The Oceania Suites and Vista Suites, with 1,000 square feet and 1,200 square feet, respectively, are the next level up, with a media room, décor from Dakota Jackson, a private veranda, and indoor and outdoor whirlpool spas.
The Owner’s Suites represent the apex of luxurious accommodations. Over 2,000 square feet, covering the entire beam of the ship, is a walk-in closet, living room, indoor and outdoor whirlpool spas, a second bathroom, a music room with a piano, and access to the private Executive Lounge.
Travelers get access to multiple dining venues, bars and lounges, afternoon tea, and room service. The main meals are held in the Grand Dining Room, an expansive space with a stately character. A color palette of cocoa, cream, and gold compliment wood accents and a crystal chandelier, while cruisers can select from European-inspired continental cuisine and a Canyon Ranch menu.
For specialty restaurants, the Marina features the following:
Jacques: This is Chef Jacques Pépin’s first restaurant with his namesake. A classic Parisian bistro feel, with a French cosmopolitan character, plays off a menu of various roasted meats.
Red Ginger: Oceania designed this restaurant with feng shui. As you take in its appearance of ebony woods, Buddha statues, hand-blown glass, and artwork, you can select from a menu of contemporary Asian dishes.
Toscana: Tuscan cuisine, with recipes from family traditions, is prepared by an Italian culinary staff, while knowledgeable sommeliers provide wine recommendations.
Polo Grill: The finest steakhouse at sea offers up a delicious menu and a classic look of dark furnishings and leather chairs.
Terrace Café: This buffet restaurant features a changing menu for breakfast and lunch, along with outdoor seating.
Waves: This casual, spacious restaurant is perfect for grabbing a quick bite to eat and enjoying it outdoors. Select from a menu of burgers, fries, barbecue, gelato, seafood, and healthy side dishes.
Privée: Oceania’s unique dining experience is designed for exclusive parties. Enjoy meals from the Polo Grill or Toscana in an opulently-designed space.
La Reserve: Fit for just 24 guests, this space featuring sophisticated décor lets you try various wine and food pairings. Order from three menus with seven-course gourmet dinners and seven wine flights.
Oceania emphasizes enrichment onboard the Marina. While travelers can read at the library or the Oceania@Sea internet center, the Artists Loft opens up the possibility of taking classes and learning from expert artists and craftsman. Similarly, cooking classes at the Bon Appetit Culinary Center feature hands-on instruction from expert chefs, with emphasis on local and regional dishes.
Oceania further opens the door to relaxation with the Canyon Ranch Spa Club. From the 30-year-old group of wellness centers, this facility features rejuvenating treatments and exercise classes, with massages, acupuncture, body wraps, scrubs, and more options available.
Or freshen up in the salon. Professional staff assists with coloring, tanning, makeup, hair styling, manicures, and pedicures.
Many cruisers prefer to enjoy the view from the ship’s pools. Step into the large heated pool, or observe from one of the three whirlpool spas.
Oceania also takes its entertainment to new heights. While there are still intimate piano bar performances and well-known headliners, this new class of ships features a choice of Broadway-quality musicals: Backstage Boss, Under the Big Top, One More for the Road, and Malibu Waves, all of which feature classic and popular songs.
