Showing off her US$50 million refurbishment, Oceania Cruises newest fleet addition, Sirena is in Australian waters for the first time following a successful inaugural season in the northern hemisphere after her launch last year.
The 684-passenger Sirena follows the award-winning design blueprint of her sister ships Regatta, Insignia and Nautica, with amenities such as four gourmet restaurants, six elegant lounges and bars, the renowned Canyon Ranch SpaClub, and 342 lavish suites and luxurious staterooms.
Oceania Cruises’ reputation has been founded on its culinary excellence and commitment to serve guests The Finest Cuisine at Sea™. Sirena characterises the brand’s epicurean heritage with delightful gourmet dining experiences. Some of these include the new culinary concept Tuscan Steak, inspired by Oceania Cruises’ traditional steak house Polo Grill, its authentic Italian restaurant, Toscana, serving up sumptuous favourites; as well as Red Ginger, a contemporary Asian-inspired restaurant dishing up delights such as Miso Glazed Sea Bass and Lobster Pad Thai. Previously, these Red Ginger options were only available aboard Oceania Cruises’ larger vessels, Marina and Riviera.
In the Grand Dining Room, lunchtime guests will find Jacques Bistro, which offers an exclusive menu featuring signature dishes from legendary chef Jacques Pépin, Oceania Cruises’ Executive Culinary Director. A selection of specially crafted dishes will also appear on the menu each evening in The Grand Dining Room.
The accommodations on the new look Sirena include re-designed palatial accommodation in the exclusive Owner’s and Vista Suites, as well as totally re-vamped public areas and new beds in every cabin, featuring the line’s signature mattresses, crisp cotton linen and delightfully snuggly duvets. Enhanced on board entertainment options include new productions such as the Rat-Pack inspired Tuxedo, and pop sensation Acoustic Sessions, as well as world-class comedic productions.
Sirena’s presence in the Australian and New Zealand region includes a series of regional itineraries including a 34-day Sydney-to-Sydney circumnavigation of Australia departing March 6th – with highlights including the Whitsundays, Papua New Guinea, Komodo, Bali, Broome, Kangaroo Island and Tasmania.
Following her Sydney-to-Sydney sailing, Sirena will set out from Sydney to Auckland on a 14-day voyage from April 9th, calling at ports including Eden, Melbourne, Burnie in Tasmania, the fjords of Milford Sound, Akaroa, Nelson, Wellington, Napier and Rotorua. From Auckland, Sirena will make her way to French Polynesia en route to the USA for her North American summer sailing season.
