Oceania Cruises announced that it will accelerate the debut of its new ship Vista by introducing a new “Founder’s Cruise” departing from Rome on May 13, 2023, and sailing to Venice. Vista had been scheduled to debut on May 20, 2023, but unprecedented demand for the ship’s inaugural season has now driven the maiden voyage forward by a week, according to a press release.
“Vista has been driving exceptional demand from the moment we first revealed her inaugural voyages. With all of her maiden season voyages sold out or on waitlist status, we are introducing an additional voyage to satisfy that exceptional demand,” stated Howard Sherman, president and CEO of Oceania Cruises.
The new “Founder’s Cruise” will be hosted by Oceania Cruises’ Founder Frank J. Del Rio in celebration of the new ship and to commemorate the brand’s 20th anniversary, according to a statement.
