Italy: Fincantieri Moves Cruise Ship RIVIERA to Fitting-Out Berth for Finishing Touches


Oceania Cruises’ RIVIERA was floated out of her construction dock and maneuvered to a fitting-out berth at Fincantieri’s Sestri Ponente shipyard in Italy on Saturday.

The Norwegian design team, Y&S of Oslo, will now focus on fitting out and finishing RIVIERA’s interiors. RIVIERA will be the virtual twin of Oceania’s MARINA, which was launched to much acclaim earlier this year.

The float out of a ship is a beautiful occasion which marks the beginning of her life and we are eagerly anticipating the day next spring that we can unveil her to the world,” stated Frank Del Rio, Chairman and CEO of Prestige Cruise Holdings, parent company of Oceania Cruises.

When completed, RIVIERA will offer 625 elegantly-appointed and custom-crafted accommodations that are among the largest at sea, ranging from 174 to a palatial 2,000+ square feet. Her top suites will be a study in chic, residential elegance and feature furnishings from Ralph Lauren Home and designs by Dakota Jackson of New York City and S.B. Long Interiors of Greenwich, CT. The ship will also feature a Lalique-designed grand lobby, 10 dining venues and numerous bars and lounges. Facilities will include a full-service Canyon Ranch SpaClub and fitness center, an innovative Bon Appétit Culinary Center, swimming pool and hot tubs.
