Oceania Announces Massive $100-Million Fleet Reimagining and Refurbishment
Oceania Cruises announced a major investment in modernizing its fleet. The company unveiled a multiyear project called OceaniaNEXT, which will ultimately touch all aspects of the line's upscale cruise experience -- its ships, emphasis on cuisine and fine dining, and destination focus. Oceania's 684-passenger Insignia will be the first ship to go under the knife, emerging with its new look December 7, 2018. Its nearly identical R-class sisters will get their makeovers over the next two years: Sirena in May 2019, Regatta in September 2019 and Nautica in June 2020.
