Sirena Christened at Barcelona

Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings’ (NCLH) brand Oceania Cruises added yesterday to its fleet the newest cruise ship Sirena, holding a christening ceremony at the Port of Barcelona.

The company purchased the ship formerly-named Ocean Princess from Princess Cruises in 2014. Upon its delivery in March 2016, the ship underwent a 35-day, USD 40 million refurbishment in Marseille, France and has now been renamed to Sirena.

Scheduled for May 2, Serena’s first voyage starts in Rome and lasts 9 days until reaching Venice.

The cruise ship’s refit is part of the company’s large refurbishment program, following its three sister ships that underwent a multimillion-dollar transformation. The refurbishment of the three mid-size cruise ships, Regatta, Nautica and Insignia was completed in 2014.

Featuring a length of 593.7 feet and a width of 83.5 feet, the ship has a gross tonnage of 30,277 t.

Sirena has an accommodation space for 664 persons and 400 crew members.
