Fincantieri: "Vista" launched near Genoa
The new class of ships starts 10 years after the delivery of “Riviera”
“Vista”, the first of two new generation cruise ships that will start the “Allura class” for Oceania Cruises, a brand of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd., was launched at the Sestri Ponente (Genoa) shipyard.
It will be approximately 67,000 tons and able to accommodate 1,200 passengers on board, assisted by 800 crew members, for a ratio of three to two. The interiors have been designed with a blend of grand and welcoming spaces to deliver the company’s signature small cruise ship luxury experience, but with a fresh, new interpretation.
The unit will stand out for a high level of innovation devoted to the principles of sustainability. Future regulations, in fact, will increasingly encourage solutions capable of guaranteeing an impact reduction, and Fincantieri intends to anticipate those trends to ensure that its products constitute a reference for the market.
Fincantieri delivered “Marina” in 2011 and “Riviera” in 2012 to Oceania Cruises at the Sestri Ponente shipyard. Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. also operates the Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) brand, for which the Group is building six new generation cruise ships of the Prima class, and Regent Seven Seas Cruises, whose fleet and has been joined by the extra-luxury units “Seven Seas Explorer” and “Seven Seas Splendor”, built respectively in 2016 in Sestri and in 2020 in Ancona. A 3 rd ship will be delivered to the brand in 2023.
