Oceania Cruises has revealed new spaces aboard its upcoming cruise ship Vista, with the top-of-the-ship Library and Owner’s Suites to be styled by Ralph Lauren Home.
Oceania Cruises will be the first cruise ship with a Library and Owner’s Suite exclusively styled in furnishings and artwork from the iconic designer.
The Library will sit at the top of the ship on Deck 14, offering what the cruise line calls “sanctuary for every guest on board to enjoy”. The room will be bordered by glass walls offering ocean views with polished nickel sconces and chandeliers on the interior.
Adjacent to the Library is Baristas, the ship’s complimentary gourmet coffee bar, along with the Bakery where guests may indulge in a frothy cappuccino or rich latte and fresh-baked French and Italian pastries.
Ralph Lauren Home will also decorate the ship’s three Owner’s Suites, each of which span the full beam of the ship and are 2,400 square feet.
“The Owner’s Suites and Library are signature elements of our brand and having them styled exclusively in Ralph Lauren Home elevates them into truly iconic spaces,” said Bob Binder, President and CEO of Oceania Cruises.
“Everything from the furnishings to the accessories and artwork is meant to envelop our guests in style and comfort, creating the ultimate feeling of home,” he added.
The suites offer commanding views, with walls of glass in every room to amplify the open and airy nature while allowing for commanding panoramas wherever in the suite one might be.
Thoughtfully layered design elements like traditional millwork on the walls, iconic Ralph Lauren Home furnishings, and signature decorative elements result in an opulent yet soothingly comfortable aesthetic.
The dramatic double-doored entry opens into the foyer and the dining room that is dominated by a floor-to-ceiling bow-shaped wall of glass that overhangs the sea.
The centerpiece of the room is the elegant Brook Street Salon dining table that is surrounded by a fleet of Holbrook Director’s Chairs from Ralph Lauren Home with a polished nickel Chatham pendant chandelier overhead.
The living room borders on decadent with wenge walnut flooring, quartered rosewood cocktail bar with hammered nickel countertop, and lounging area filled with modern furnishings that showcase a nautical flair.
At the end of the living room, a wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling glass wall provides sea views, while adjacent to the bar, glass doors open onto the expansive teak veranda that is furnished for lounging, entertaining and dining.
The master bedroom features a luxurious Cote d’Azur king-size bed, walk-in closets, and a master bath with a large soaking tub and an ocean-view shower. There is also a second teak veranda off the master bedroom.
Vista’s inaugural season itineraries will be revealed on September 9th, 2021 and will open for sale on September 15th, 2021.
She will sail the first of her 18 voyages in April 2023, visiting more than 24 countries across four continents, from the ancient sands of Asia in the east to the glittering hills of Hollywood in the west.
