Review of Oceania Marina
Launched in 2011, Oceania Marina cruise ship is one of company's newest, with sistership Riviera. Both liners were constructed in Italy and designed by the Norwegian marine architecture company "Petter Yran and Bjorn Storbratten".
History - construction and ownership
Oceania Cruises is an US company, and brand owned by NCL Norwegian (shipowner), Between April 2007 and September 2014, the company (as part of "Prestige Cruise Holdings") was owned by Apollo Management LP - one of the world's largest private investment equity funds. Since September 2014, Oceania and the sister company Regent Seven Seas Cruises are owned by NCL, acquired at the total cost of USD 3 billion. Oceania ships offer luxury cruises with relatively shorter itineraries, as well as Around The World voyages up to 180 days in length.
The 66,084-ton, 1,258-passenger cruise ship Marina debuted in January 2011 as the first new-build of Oceania Cruises. Shiny, large and chic, Marina marks a huge step forward for the upper-premium line.
Cruise itinerary program
Marina itinerary program is based on luxury world cruises to exotic destinations in the South Pacific, (sailing out of Australia, New Zealand, French Polynesia), South America, Canada/New England, Europe (Mediterranean, Canary Islands, Baltic). Oceania Marina offers Panama Canal transits and transatlantic repositioning crossings.
Oceania Marina has a total of 629 cabins (of which 147 Suite, 444 Balcony, 18 Inside rooms) in 17 grades. Most Marina staterooms (94%) are 235-sq.foot Balcony rooms. The largest aboard Marina are the Owner’s Suites (1335 ft2).
Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks
Marina offers four reservations-only restaurants, plus a buffet restaurant and casual snack spots. Specialty restaurants come with no additional charge but require reservations. The most high-profile of all is Jacques, the first restaurant ever created, on land or sea, by celebrity chef Jacques Pepin. Jacques is designed with the feel of a French bistro and focuses on traditional French cuisine. Other specialty restaurants include the Polo Grill steakhouse and the Mediterranean Toscana - both carry-overs from the earlier ships of the line, and Red Ginger, which is an excellent pan-Asian spot.
Follows the complete list of Marina restaurants and food bars.
- Red Ginger (feng shui Asia specialty restaurant with a 5-course “tasting” and a la carte menu)
- Jacques (124-seat complimentary dinner restaurant, reservations-only; features French cuisine by chef Pepin)
- Grand Dining Room (complimentary 340-seat restaurant for open seating Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner; offers French-inspired dishes, and menus change daily)

- Terrace Cafe & Bar (casual buffet restaurant, complimentary; open for breakfast and lunch; features indoor and outdoor sitting areas; the Terrace Bar serves as a small pizzeria as well; the Terrace Cafe transforms into “Tapas On The Terrace” at night serving traditional Mediterranean cuisine)

- Privee (a limited capacity private dining room, between Toscana and Polo, 10-seat, charge $1000 for the entire room; features Chef’s Table and 7-course gourmet menu)
- In October 2015, Oceania announced its plan to combine the Toscana and Polo Grill specialty restaurants into a new venue - “Tuscan Steak”, with quality wood paneling decorated with platinum and silver. The gourmet dinner menu of the new restaurant includes items, such as “Bistecca alla Fiorentina”, “Maine Lobster & Shrimp Fra Diavol”, “Tuscan Porterhouse Steak”, and the signature pork chops of Oceania Cruises “Iberico de Bellota”. At the entrance there is a wine cellar with a selection of fine wines.
Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport
Much of the inspiration for the layout of Marina came from such high-end establishments as Miami's Mondrian Hotel, the Palm Court at NYC's Plaza Hotel and Bouchon dining venue in Napa. Marina cruise ship is not a true luxury vessel; her cruises sell at a more moderate price point and are considerably less inclusive. Cruisers should bring out their wallets for a range of fares charged a la carte, from cocktails to enrichment programs and facilities.

Oceania Marina wiki
Oceania Marina ship is the first of the line's two newbuilt vessels. Her sister and fleetmate is ms Riviera. On September 2, 2014, the NCL Norwegian company purchased the company "Prestige Cruise Holdings" (owner of Oceania and RSSC-Regent Seven Seas Cruises) for USD 3,025 billion, thus becoming the official owner of all vessels in both fleets.
The line's owner NCL Norwegian received government's permission to operate cruises to Cuba from the USA, with three Oceania ships - Marina (starting in the end of 2016), Regatta (starting in 2017) and Insignia (Nov-Dec 2017). Oceania ships operated a variety of itineraries, including circumnavigation of Cuba (with stops in ports Cienfuegos and Havana) and also visiting Cuba as part of some Panama Canal transition cruises.
The Apollo Group company provides all Oceania ships with the entire onboard hotel product and services. This includes administration, food staff (preparation and serving), housekeeping staff, also the vessel's provisioning and crewing. Other cruise lines served by Apollo are Thomson UK (Marella Cruises) and RSSC Regent Seven Seas.
