MS Marina is one of the newest addition to Oceania Cruises, having joined the fleet in January 2011. She was christened by American television personality, Mary Hart, in Miami.
Her sister ship, the Riviera, joined the fleet later in May 2012. Not only has Marina doubled the capacity of Oceania’s other ships, the Regatta, Insignia and Nautica, it has also taken gastronomy at sea to another level!
Housing internationally renowned French chef, Jacques Pepin’s first namesake restaurant, Marina also introduced Bon Appetit Culinary Center which offers hands-on cooking lessons from Culinary Institute of America instructors. Marina‘s culinary efforts are certainly the most elaborate at sea.
Marina‘s passengers tend to fall into the older age bracket (50 and up), are well-travelled and hail mostly from North America, with British and Australians making up the balance.
Alcohol may be brought onboard Oceania vessels. However wine and champagne (limited to three bottles per room) may be consumed in restaurants with a corkage fee of USD20, and liquor and beer can only be consumed in staterooms. Onboard duty-free stores do not sell alcohol.
