Oceania Cruises’ Riviera Successfully Completes Sea Trials

Oceania Cruises' 1,250-guest Riviera successfully completed sea trials in the Mediterranean under the command of technicians and engineers from Fincantieri's Sestre shipyard, along with Oceania Cruises' marine and technical teams, according to the company. The ship is scheduled to be christened in Barcelona on May 11, 2012.

The teams performed a comprehensive evaluation of the vessel's functionality, including speed, maneuverability, hydrodynamics, and propulsion and safety systems. The 66,084-ton vessel will next dock at an outfitting berth where workers will finish its interior and exterior.

Riviera will be the second new ship launched by Oceania Cruises in under 18 months, and will feature 10 dining venues including six gourmet restaurants, 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. The ship will depart on a 10-day maiden voyage from Venice on May 16, 2012, with calls at Dubrovnik, Kotor, Corfu, Monemvasia, Crete, Santorini, Kusadasi (for Ephesus), Delos and Mykonos before the voyage ends in Piraeus.
