Oceania Cruises announced that Regatta, Insignia and Nautica, its trio of R-Class ships, will undergo a transformation starting early next year in what the company said is the largest refurbishment program in its history.

The ships will receive a $50 million upgrade in a six-week timeframe that includes the refurbishment of suites, staterooms and select public rooms, some in the colors and décor-style found on the line's newest ships - Marina and Riviera. The ships' top accommodations, the Owner's and Vista suites, will receive new bathrooms including the addition of oversized showers and new vanities. Original artwork, in-line with the celebrated collection on Marina and Riviera, will be commissioned for all suites and staterooms.

The Terrace Café, which offers casual gourmet dining, will also be completely refurbished including the addition of a state-of-the-art grill allowing for grilled dinner specialties such as lobster tails, steaks and lamb chops made famous onboard Marina and Riviera. The company will also add to Regatta, Insignia and Nautica the Baristas coffee bar found on its newest ships.

Kunal S. Kamlani, president of Oceania Cruises, said, "We will preserve the personality, elegance and comfort of these vessels while furnishing certain areas with the updated décor and amenities that are found on Marina and Riviera."

Horizons, the line's observation lounge, will also be refurbished with a new color scheme and décor. In addition, the company will completely enclose the ships' only indoor smoking area, located in Horizons, with glass and install a state-of-the-art air filtration system.

Oceania Cruises' flagship restaurant, the Grand Dining Room as well as Toscana, the line's Italian restaurant will be expanded with more tables for two. Lastly, the ships’ show lounges will be refurbished, Martinis will be outfitted with new furniture and the Canyon Ranch SpaClub will receive new steam and changing rooms.

The dry docks are scheduled from April 24-June 6, 2014 with Insignia and Nautica being refurbished in Marseilles, France and Regatta in Vancouver, B.C. The renovated Insignia will debut on May 8, 2014 in Barcelona for her seven-day Jewels of Europe cruise. This will be Insignia's first cruise after her two-year charter. Nautica will debut on May 16, 2014 in Civitavecchia for her 10-day Cliffs and Coves cruise and Regatta on June 7, 2014 in Vancouver for her 10-day Majesty of Alaska cruise.
