Oceania Cruises has announced that Marina will be given an ‘all-encompassing’ refurbishment in May 2024 which will include adding three new dining options.
The 1,250-passenger ship is the last in the line’s current fleet to be given a refresh.
The new dining venues include a wellness-focused restaurant, the Aquamar Kitchen, which will serve healthy dishes including smoothies, energy bowls, salads and more. It will also offer non-alcoholic wines and spirits.
There will also be an expanded poolside ice cream parlour serving milkshakes and smoothies, and in the evenings, the Waves Grill will transform into an al fresco trattoria offering Italian dishes.
Other areas on Marina will also be given a makeover – the Penthouse Suites will be completely refurbished with new furniture, carpets, upholstery, updated lighting, as well as added power outlets and USB ports and new marble bathrooms. All upper suites will also be given a refresh.
Public spaces including the Polo Grill steakhouse, Martinis, Horizons, The Grand Dining Room and Library will be updated with new carpets and refreshed upholstery.
Oceania Cruises President Frank A. 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 globally, 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.”
The refurbished ship will be back in service on 18 May and will sail a mix of Northern Europe sailings for the summer.
