Oceania Cruises announced the debut season sailings for Allura, which will join the fleet in the summer of 2025.
The inaugural season includes 26 sailings to 92 destinations, ranging from seven to 34 days. These cruises are available to book from 14 September 2023.
Allura, the second Allura Class ship carrying 1,200 guests, builds on the success of her sister, Vista, which debuted in May to global praise and sold-out trips. The vessel offers a luxurious experience, with ordinary cabins measuring 291 square feet, which is larger than many entry-level suites on ultra-luxury cruise lines.
Oceania Cruises President Frank A. Del Rio expressed excitement at Allura’s launch, adding that it embodies Oceania Cruises’ future. He emphasised that Allura’s Inaugural Season is intended to appeal to curious travellers by allowing them to rediscover old favourites and discover new ones.
The inaugural voyage of Allura will begin on 8 June 2025. It will carry passengers on a seven-day journey from Athens to Istanbul, stopping at fascinating places like Santorini, Rhodes, and Istanbul. The ship will visit popular cities and lesser-known gems during its inaugural European season, with overnight visits in Istanbul, Monte Carlo, Quebec City, Montreal, and New York.
The ship’s itineraries appeal to seasoned world travellers, taking them from the Mediterranean to Canada, New England, and even the Caribbean. The inaugural season of Allura offers a genuinely extraordinary cruise experience, supplemented by superb culinary options, including new specialty restaurants Ember and Aquamar Kitchen and various enriching onboard activities.
Allura seeks to improve the Oceania Cruises experience even further with a new Crêperie, a social hub with panoramic views, and its dedication to culinary excellence. Del Rio underlined the cruise line’s delight to welcome Allura to the fleet, which will build on the history of the line’s other legendary ships, Marina and Riviera.
Allura marks an important step forward in Oceania Cruises’ commitment to offer travellers unforgettable journeys and world-class culinary experiences at sea.
