Oceania Cruises unveiled the first of many enhancements coming to the line’s 1,250-guest ships Marina and Riviera: A new generation of Owner’s Suites furnished exclusively with Ralph Lauren Home.
“As we are always looking for ways to elevate the guest experience, we took the opportunity to completely re-master these suites and provide our guests with an entirely new experience,” said Bob Binder, president and CEO of Oceania Cruises, in a written release.
Everything from the furnishings to the artwork is new. The rooms sport a color palette of navy, white, crème and camel, while fabrics and upholstery mix solids and stripes, with pops of metallic, silver and gold. Oceania says the details, such as the red, white and blue-striped fabric selected for the outdoor cushions on the suites’ verandas are intended to harken back to Mr. Lauren’s label as “America’s designer.”
Guests will enter through the foyer with a limestone and black cabochon inset floor, walls of inset Georgian wood paneling, and a mahogany and quartzite bar. This room has floor-to-ceiling windows dressed with Ralph Lauren Grimaldi-weave sail fabric, along with a self-playing ebony piano. The living room is anchored by a new saddle-suede sectional sofa accented with deep navy cushions and accompanied by a mahogany Lounge Moderne chair upholstered in navy and white Super-Yacht Stripe. The centerpiece of the dining room is the Mayfair dining table with a new Barrett Knurled chandelier overhead. The master suite, which is a “retreat unto itself,” received a new Cote D'Azur king-size bed, Mayfair Bergere side chairs upholstered in Sutton Suede Doe and nickel-trimmed lighting accents. Lastly, the wraparound teak verandas have stylish pieces that were custom-crafted by Ralph Lauren Home for Oceania Cruises.
Designed by Los Angeles based Trevor R. Howells Interior Design, the Owner’s Suites “reflect Ralph Lauren’s appreciation for sailing, Hollywood glamour and timeless, classical beauty,” according to the cruise line.
The new Owner’s Suites will debut on Riviera in April 2019 and Marina in May 2020. Further details on additional enhancements and new guest experiences coming to both ships will be revealed in early 2019.
Each of the six Owner’s Suites measures more than 2,000 square feet and spans the entire beam of the ship. These rooms have a large living room, a master suite, two walk-in closets, indoor and outdoor whirlpool spas, and a foyer; they also include exclusive card-only access to the Executive Lounge with a private library.
The refurbishments come as part of the OceaniaNEXT enhancement project. The initiative will elevate every facet of the Oceania Cruises guest experience, the cruise line says.
