Riviera Ocenia Cruiselines new ship will start sailing soon

Oceania Cruises’ 1,250-guest Riviera successfully completed sea trials on Tuesday, where she sailed the Mediterranean for three days. During the sea trials the ship yard staff from Fincantieri and marine technicians performed tests including: vessel’s functionality, including speed, maneuverability, hydrodynamics, propulsion and safety systems.

 

"Riviera exceeded all of my expectations. While underway the ship handled perfectly in all sea conditions and power settings” said Captain Luca Manzi, the ship’s master. “Riviera cruised at more than 21 knots with ample reserve power.”

 

Riviera is a lot like her sister Marina. Designed for epicureans, Riviera features 10 dining venues – six of which are gourmet restaurants, plus a Bon Appétit Culinary Center for hands-on learning and La Reserve by Wine Spectator, a professional facility for wine-tastings and wine-pairing dinners.
