The brand’s newest ship will launch in summer 2025
Oceania Cruises, the world’s leading culinary and destination-focused cruise line, has revealed the inaugural season sailings for Allura, its newest ship, due to join the fleet in summer 2025.
The 26 sailings span more than 92 destinations on various seven to 34-day voyages and will open for sale on 13 September 2023.
As the line’s second 1,200-guest Allura Class ship, Allura follows sister ship Vista, which launched in May.
Oceania Cruises President Frank Del Rio commented: “Excitement is already building in advance of Allura’s debut. This beautiful new addition to our family embodies the dynamic and dazzling future of Oceania Cruises. Allura heralds the ultimate evolution of our onboard experience, and her Inaugural Season is designed to entice curious world travellers, to allow them to reconnect with well-loved favourite destinations and discover new ones for the first time.”
