Oceania Marina gets official 5-star rating
Earning more than 1,700 points, which equates to a 5-star rating, Marina has joined a group of cruise ships that belong to the Berlitz "Five-Star Club," representing the highest rated vessels in the world.
Oceania Cruises Marina sets cruise industry standards with elegantly appointed public rooms and standard staterooms that are among the most spacious at sea. Specifically designed for epicureans, the ship features a total of 10 dining venues, six of which are open-seating gourmet restaurants; all at no additional charge. Riviera, a sister ship, will debut in April 2012.
The author of the Berlitz cruise guide is Douglas Ward - he said "It is really good to see a new entry into the Berlitz 'Five-Star Club' due to Oceania Cruises' major investment and focus on the finely detailed furnishings aboard this new mid-sized ship, combined with the highest regard for and attention to the dining and culinary aspects of the cruise experience"
Oceania Cruises offers unrivalled cuisine, luxurious accommodations, exceptional personalised service and extraordinary value. Itineraries visit more than 330 ports in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, and the Americas aboard the 684-guest Regatta, Insignia and Nautica. The line's 1,250-guest Marina debuted in January 2011 and will be followed by Riviera - a sister ship - in April 2012
