Oceania Cruises' Riviera Completes Sea Trials

March 27, 2012 By: Elliott Mest Travel Agent

Oceania Cruises’ 1,250-guest Riviera, scheduled to be christened in Barcelona on May 11, 2012, successfully completed her sea trials, including three days of sailing the Mediterranean.

During the sea trials, technicians and engineers from the Fincantieri Sestre shipyard along with Oceania Cruises’ marine and technical teams performed a comprehensive evaluation of the vessel’s functionality, including speed, maneuverability, hydrodynamics, propulsion and safety systems.

The 66,084-ton ship will dock at the outfitting berth, where workers will put the finishing touches on her interiors as well as exterior.

Riviera is the second new ship launched by Oceania Cruises in under 18 months. Designed for epicureans, Riviera features 10 dining venues – six of which are gourmet restaurants, plus a Bon Appétit Culinary Center for hands-on learning and La Reserve by Wine Spectator, a professional facility for wine-tastings and wine-pairing dinners.

Riviera sets sail on May 16 on her 10-day maiden voyage from Venice to Pireaus that calls at Dubrovnik, Kotor, Corfu, Monemvasia, Crete, Santorini, Kusadasi (for Ephesus), Delos and Mykonos.
