Oceania Cruises’ Marina has been named one of the top 10 mid-size ships in the world in the 2012 Berlitz Complete Guide to Cruising & Cruise Ships. With a total score of more than 1,700 points, which translates to a 5-star rating, Marina has joined an elite group of vessels that belong to the Berlitz “Five-Star Club,” representing the highest rated ships in the world.
We are honoured that Marina has been recognised in the 2012 Berlitz Complete Guide to Cruising & Cruise Ships,” said Bruce J. Himelstein, Oceania Cruises’ president. We continue to raise the bar and redefine the upper-premium cruise category and Berlitz’s vigorous rating system demonstrates that we are succeeding.
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.
“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,” said Douglas Ward, author of the prestigious guidebook.
