MS Marina is an Oceania-class cruise ship, which was constructed at Fincantieri's Sestri Ponente yards in Italy for Oceania Cruises. The Marina is the first in a duo of cruise ships, and was followed by the MS Riviera in May 2012,[1] the option for the third ship was declined.[4] The ship was named in Miami by Mary Hart on February 5, 2011.[5]

Concept and Construction

The finalization of contract for the construction of Marina and her sister ship, plus an option for a third, was reached on 18 June 2007.[6] The Marina is a mid-sized ship, at 66,000 tons and was designed by the Yran & Storbratten (Y&S) architectural firm.[7] The keel of Marina was laid on 10 March 2009 and included the welding of a U.S. silver dollar coin and a pre-Castro Cuban peso coin in the keel and is believed to bring fortune to the ship, its passengers and crew during their seagoing life.[3]

Marina has nine dining venues. The Grand Dining Room, more casual Terraces, and poolside Waves Grill are open seating, no-charge and open daily. Four specialty dining restaurants require reservations (typically up to two per stateroom) are available at no added charge: the cruise line's signature Polo Grill, Toscana, the new French Bistro Jacques and the Pan Asian restaurant Red Ginger.
