The Oceania Vista will have a sister in 2025 when Oceania Cruises debuts the 1,200-passenger Oceania Allura, the cruise line's second Allura Class ship and its eighth vessel.

True to its namesake that was inspired by the word ‘allure’ for mysteriously attractive and fascinating things, the Allura is expected to bring travellers on enchanted journeys where exciting adventures, familiar faces, off-the-beaten-path destinations and more await.

“At Oceania Cruises, we are always looking for ways to evolve, elevate and modernise our offerings to continuously surprise and delight our discerning guests as they enjoy immersive new experiences,” said Frank A. Del Rio, president of Oceania Cruises. 

“We are thrilled with the incredible demand we have witnessed for Allura’s sister ship, Vista, with her 2023 maiden season already sold out, and we know Allura will be equally as popular with our guests."

Weighing in at approximately 67,000 tons, Allura can accommodate up to 1,200 guests who will be served by 800 officers and crew – a 1.5:2 staff-to-guest ratio. Similar to its sister ship, Allura will offer Oceania Cruises’ signature ‘The Finest Cuisine at Sea’ that features meals curated by world-renowned chefs.

Allura will also bring inventive new dining experiences to the table including Ember, an upscale restaurant serving reimagined American classics, and Aquamar Kitchen, both debuting on Vista in May, as well as the largest standard staterooms and a new Chef’s Studio.

The ship is targeted to set off on its maiden voyage in spring 2025, with its inaugural season featuring an array of marquee and boutique destinations across Europe and the Americas. The itineraries will be revealed this spring before opening for bookings in the summer.
