In a first for the industry, Oceania Cruises will debut a a library exclusively styled in furnishings and artwork from iconic designer Ralph Lauren.
Vista is an Oceania Cruise and boasts the world’s leading culinary and destination focused liner. On Monday, they unveiled the palatial Owner’s Suites and top-of-ship Library aboard the vessel.
“The Owner’s Suites and Library are signature elements of our brand and having them styled exclusively in Ralph Lauren Home elevates them into truly iconic spaces. Everything from the furnishings to the accessories and artwork is meant to envelop our guests in style and comfort, creating the ultimate feeling of home,” said Bob Binder, President and CEO of Oceania Cruises.
Atop the ship on Deck 15, the Library, exclusively styled in Ralph Lauren Home, offers an inspired sanctuary for every guest on board to enjoy. Bordered by glass walls offering extraordinary seascapes, the Library invites sybaritic relaxation, the ultimate quietude of a few hours with a bestselling novel, or perhaps the unrivaled indulgence of simply watching the world float by. Polished nickel sconces and chandeliers provide the perfect ambient lighting while classic sepia equestrian prints adorn the walls.
Adjacent to the Library is Baristas, the ship’s complimentary gourmet coffee bar, along with the Bakery where guests may indulge in a frothy cappuccino or rich latte and fresh-baked French and Italian pastries.
Vista will feature three supremely spacious Owner’s Suites, each of which spans the full beam of the ship. Measuring 2,400 square feet and styled exclusively in Ralph Lauren Home, these seagoing estate homes are the ultimate expression of timeless American elegance.
This new generation of Owner’s Suites was designed and furnished to feel like ultimate seagoing estates. Embracing their lofty height and commanding views, the spaces feature walls of glass in every room to amplify the open and airy nature while allowing for commanding panoramas wherever in the suite one might be. Thoughtfully layered design elements like traditional millwork on the walls, iconic Ralph Lauren Home furnishings, and signature decorative elements result in an opulent yet soothingly comfortable aesthetic.
Wall of glass that overlooks the sea
The dramatic double-doored entry opens into the foyer and the beautiful dining room that is dominated by a floor-to-ceiling bow-shaped wall of glass that overlooks the sea. The centrepiece of the room is the elegant Brook Street Salon dining table that is surrounded by a fleet of Holbrook Director’s Chairs from Ralph Lauren Home with a polished nickel Chatham pendant chandelier overhead.
The living room borders on decadent with its lustrous wenge walnut flooring, quartered rosewood cocktail bar with hammered nickel countertop, and sumptuous lounging area filled with modern furnishings that showcase a nautical flair. At the end of the living room, a wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling glass wall provides for unequalled vistas while adjacent to the bar, a wall of glass opens onto the expansive teak veranda that is furnished for lounging, entertaining and dining.
The master bedroom is an entire retreat unto itself, featuring a luxurious Cote d’Azur king-size bed, capacious walk-in closets, and an opulent master bath with a large soaking tub and an ocean-view shower. A second teak veranda off the master bedroom promises peaceful solitude amidst the refined elegance.
