The Grand Staircase
An iconic element of the Oceania Cruises brand, The Grand Staircase is where every new Oceania Cruises journey begins. Sleek curves and elegant details define the grandest of beginnings. A glistening floor-to-ceiling pillar of crystal and light sets the tone for the ship and the guest experience.
The Grand Lounge
Evoking the feeling of a private club, The Grand Lounge features sleek alcoves enhanced by a gold-infused colour palette, sculptural lighting, and elegant lines. It’s a relaxing yet elegant lounge that invites guests to unwind before an unforgettable dinner or enjoy a nightcap with fellow explorers.
So much more than the name conveys, Oceania Cruises’ reimagined Martini’s bar is a true destination aboard Vista. Convivial gathering spaces are nestled among walls of shimmering glass, and custom sculptural lighting casts a warm glow over the heart of the bar. Sophistication, glamour, and elegance serve as a backdrop for extraordinary evenings
Casino + Casino Bar
Layers of luxury come to life through the golden grandeur and art nouveau-inspired touches in Vista’s elegantly evolved Casino. The energised excitement is palpable in this enclave designed for those drawn to exciting games of chance and skill as well as those simply seeking a refined space to enjoy a cocktail.
Conjuring a world of possibilities, the dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows and inspiring silhouettes in Horizons celebrate the journey. Guests will be awed by sweeping 180-degree views whether they’re sharing travel stories over Afternoon Tea, taking in sights along the way, or enjoying a lively musical performance.
Our entertainment architects have engineered a space with the best possible acoustics and visual lines to provide a home worthy of the engaging talent that you will witness in the Vista Lounge. During the daytime, experts in their fields — from diplomats to chefs to historians — enlighten you with enrichment programs that provide insight into the regions you are exploring. After the sun sets, the Vista Lounge presents a new line-up of entertainment to enthral the audience, including sophisticated cabarets, world-class musicians, dynamic vocalists, and exclusive headliners.
Mirroring the beauty of the surrounding sea, the Pool Deck creates the perfect onboard escape. Guests may revel in the solitude of a uniquely modern beach-club cabana, go for a refreshing swim, or gather with friend’s poolside. The variety of textures and soothing natural tones come together in a natural oasis to reconnect with nature.
The luxuriously appointed staterooms vary from the 240 square foot French Veranda Stateroom to the spacious Owners Suite - over 2,500 square feet of luxury, spanning the full beam of the ship and styled exclusively by Ralph Lauren Home. Solo travellers are catered for with the Concierge Level Solo Veranda Stateroom.
