Oceania Cruises unveiled the first of many enhancements coming to the line’s 1,250-guest ships Marina and Riviera: an altogether new generation of Owner’s Suites furnished exclusively with Ralph Lauren Home.
Sporting a color palette that is quintessentially Ralph Lauren, the suites are dressed in navy, white, crème, and camel. Fabrics and upholstery are a mix of solids and stripes, with pops of metallic, silver, and gold. Even details such as the red, white, and blue striped fabric selected for the outdoor cushions on the suites’ verandas harken back to Mr. Lauren’s label as “America’s designer” and reminding us of his charitable work in restoring the Star-Spangled Banner at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.
Guests will enter through the foyer with a limestone and black cabochon inset floor, walls of inset Georgian wood paneling, and a mahogany and quartzite bar. This grand room features sea-views from floor-to-ceiling windows dressed with Ralph Lauren Grimaldi-weave sail fabric, along with a self-playing ebony piano. The living room features a new saddle-suede sectional sofa accented with deep navy cushions and accompanied by a mahogany Lounge Moderne chair upholstered in navy and white Super-Yacht Stripe. The centerpiece of the dining room is the Mayfair dining table with a new Barrett Knurled chandelier overhead. The master suite features a Cote D’Azur king-size bed, elegant Mayfair Bergere side chairs upholstered in Sutton Suede Doe and nickel-trimmed lighting accents.
Designed by Los Angeles based Trevor R. Howells Interior Design, the Owner’s Suites reflect Ralph Lauren’s appreciation for sailing, Hollywood glamour, and timeless, classical beauty.
The new Owner’s Suites will debut on Riviera in April 2019 and Marina in May 2020. Further details on additional enhancements and new guest experiences coming to both ships will be revealed in early 2019.
