A blissful tropical climate softened by Atlantic trade winds, pinkish-white, sugar-soft beaches, fabulous scuba diving, and laid-back catamaran cruises… These are just some of the fabulous experiences to be savoured in one of the Caribbean’s most popular and welcoming destinations - Barbados.
Oceania’s New Ship
Launching in 2023, Oceania’s elegant new Vista will rival any of the amazing and inspirational destinations you’ll visit on your journeys aboard, with her dramatic spaces and luxurious design – not least in the Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center with its lush massages, traditional Chinese medicine therapies, medi-spa aesthetic treatments, personal training and HIIT, and yoga and Pilates.
During her highly anticipated inaugural season, Vista will take in destinations in the Mediterranean, French Riviera, Canada, New England, the Panama Canal and beyond. Vista's itineraries for 2023 will include the Canary Islands, the ancient Adriatic, Greek Islands, Holy Land highlights, the British Isles, London to New York, New York to Montreal, and the Panama Canal.
Dining Aboard Oceania Vista
From the exclusive culinary venues of opulent Privée with its private dining and The Culinary Center Dining Room with its signature hands-on cooking-class experience, to poolside burgers and bourbon-flavoured Secret Breakfast ice creams, Oceania’s passion for serving extraordinary cuisine shines through across the vessels. Think attention to detail, a passion for artisanal ingredients and dedication to technique wherever and whenever you eat.
As a guest aboard Vista, you’ll be among the first to experience Ember, Oceania’s latest restaurant concept, serving inventive American creations blended with classics such as braised short ribs on polenta, grilled swordfish with asparagus, and crab cakes with spicy aioli.
Another standout is Aquamar Kitchen with its wellness-inspired fare including cold-pressed raw juices, super-food smoothies and organic power bowls at breakfast and super-healthy lunch dishes such as roast organic salmon with quinoa tabouleh and lemon tahini, or yellowfin tacos with white cabbage slaw.
Then there are the celebratory daily afternoon teas to leave space for, accompanied by the soft strains of a classical string quartet and served on four-tiered pastry carts laden with freshly made finger sandwiches, petits fours, scones with clotted cream and indulgent desserts to accompany a hand-picked selection of artisanal teas.
A cornerstone of Vista’s bar programme will be immersive, experiential beverage offerings including speciality beverage carts like The Bubbly Bar, which will serve exclusive Champagne cocktails, and The Ultimate Bloody Mary Bar, where you'll be invited to create the perfect brunch accompaniment.
The Casino Mixology Bar is a brand new concept on Vista, focused entirely on the art of the cocktail. Boasting a unique selection of bourbons and ryes in addition to tableside preparation of cocktails and spirits, the bar will likely become an Instagram favourite for serving readymade Negronis straight from the barrel and awesome “Flavour Blaster Gun” cocktails that are topped off with vapour filled bubbles with aromatic flavours.
Martinis is the signature onboard bar, serving up refreshing cocktails using Mermaid Gin and Vodka, handcrafted from ethically sourced botanicals on the Isle of Wight. Either shaken or stirred, the new martini menu features a collection that gives tribute to Hollywood greats such as: Lady Hepburn, Bogard’s Casablanca, Blue Eyes Sinatra and Notorious Bond.
Luxury Accommodation Aboard Oceania Vista
Vista’s all-veranda suites and staterooms set new standards for comfort and residential-style luxury, with soothing decor and luxury furnishings, oversized rainforest showers, large vanities, a vast amount of storage space and heavenly Tranquility Beds.

Meanwhile those looking to keep fit and active can engage in activities with a view on the Sports Deck with its running track, golf putting green, shuffleboard, pickleball, fitness track, paddle tennis, bocce and croquet, or in the ocean-vista fitness centre offering Pilates, yoga, full-body strength training, personal training and state-of-the-art equipment.
