Oceania Cruises Orders Two New Cruise Ships
Oceania Cruises, a luxury cruise line owned by Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd, has announced an order for two new next generation cruise ships. These two new ships are scheduled to be delivered in 2022 and 2025.
The two 67,000 gross ton Allura-Class ships will each accommodate approximately 1,200 guests. This new class of mid-size cruise vessels will retain all the warmth, popular design elements, and signature amenities of the cruise line’s award-winning Marina and Riviera while affording guests an additional level of comfort, convenience and many new luxury amenities.
The contract price for each of the two vessels is approximately €575 million per ship. The company has obtained export credit financing with favorable terms to fund 80 percent of the contract price of each ship, subject to certain Italian government approvals.
