Ralph Lauren’s Home Away from Home

For the fashionistas in the family, Oceania Cruises’ new décor may look familiar. Known as a leading luxury cruise line focused on idyllic destinations and high-end experiences, Oceania’s 1,250-guest vessels, Marina and Riviera, now boast a Ralph Lauren Home appearance, straight out of a fashion magazine and design catalogue.

This new generation of ship design adds another level of exclusivity onboard — fit for royalty, but still understated and complementing the cruise line’s subtle luxury touches and destination-centric itinerary.


Of all of Oceania Cruises vessels, hosting 680–1,250 guests, Marina and Riviera are two of the largest, but still offer an intimate appeal, from curated itineraries, customized voyages and experienced-focused passages.


Ideal for families with older children seeking cultural experiences in destinations including Cuba, Northern Europe, South Pacific, Tahiti, South America, the Amazon, Caribbean and transoceanic voyages — to name a few — both the Marina and Riviera make year-round expeditions.


Hop on a seven-day vacation from Venice to Rome, enjoying Italy’s finest cuisine and history; sail Lisbon to Rio de Janeiro on a 16-day journey with the kids; or, if you have more time off than you know what to do with, a 38-day Samba to South Pacific cruise from Rio de Janeiro to Papeete may be more up your alley at $7,149 per guest.

Trips range $1,599–8,000-plus per guest, depending on the destination, timeline and time of year, but with a lineup as luxurious as the cruises available — not to mention the onboard experiences — you may need to draw the line at price just to narrow down your options.


Check out the wide variety of rooms available onboard and decide where the kids will stay. While the older teens and adult children can easily run around enjoying their own vacation, it’s fun to plan nearby rooms and a family-focused vacation, as this cruise line is best appreciated with a more mature crowd.

While the ultra-luxurious Owner’s Suites of the Riviera and Marina could physically hold a family of four with room to spare, the more than 2,000-square-foot space lends to special occasion guests, with exclusive access to the Ralph Lauren Home Collection furnishings. Feel free to invite the family over to your stateroom, however, as it spans the ship’s entire beam.


Relax in the large living room or enjoy your individual privacy in the master suite, complete with a king-sized bed, two walk-in closets and a whirlpool spa both indoor and outdoor, as well as an opulent mahogany bar, grand piano and stunning entryway. Your room card grants access to the executive lounge and private library.


The Ralph Lauren Home Collection debuting in April 2019 onboard Riviera and May 2020 on Marina; stay tuned for further updates on the cruise line’s incredible onboard experiences and updates.
