I thought the results of the ship naming contest were suppose to be announced on Feb 3.  Anybody hear anything?

Somebody named Charlie K won the contest, but they have not announced the winning name of the ship as of yet.

 

Messer Rubacky will no doubt make an announcement soon.

He loves the suspense.

Charlie K.  Speak up!!!  What is the new name??

 

Charlie K was just randomly chosen from those who submitted names in the 'contest'  He did not pick the winning name.

We might be surprised,  but it would seem very likely that the new “Allura class” ship will be Allura.   

 

That may happen, but it is not always the case.   Sometimes the first ship delivered in a class is not the one the class is named for, a subsequent one is.   And sometimes none of the ships bear the name of the class.  The latter example holds true for Oceania.

  The 'R Class", as they are now commonly known, were originally Renaissance Cruises 'R Class', a class of 8, of which Oceania now owns 4.  Their names were R One thru R Eight.  The first one Oceania purchased was R Two.  Oceania renamed her Regatta, and for a while, the subsequent purchases were all included in the 'Regatta Class'.   Since the older, R One, which Oceania renamed the Insignia joined the fleet, Oceania along the way changed the class name back to 'R Class', if I recall correctly...

The 'O' Class, were Oceania's first two newbuild's.

More importantly than her name is where and when will she sail! If Oceania sticks to their recent history, ( no assurances), they will release the remainder of late 2021 and first half 2022 cruises sometime between 3/15 and 4/15. 
 

1. Will the new ship appear yet,  on that schedule; and

2.  How will she be priced compared to the O and R ships?

 

Much bigger questions than a mere name to us.

It is likely she will begin close to her Italian origin...doing some Med cruises followed by a transatlantic to Miami to be named.

The way things are going, pretty certain she won't be going near Asia for a while...

On Regatta's last cruise (New Zealand to Australia) an Oceania ambassador said the schedule would be released in January 2021. However, in my mind, everything 10 months out is subject to revision and rescheduling, so ...

The OC Ambassador on our February Regatta cruise, told us that the name was 'Vista' and that this new Allura ship's schedule will be available January 2021. She also stated that the remaining schedule of R & O class of ships will be released in October 2020.

When is "Vista" due to sail?

Probably they initially chose “Corona” as it is a royal sounding name. But had to scrub that plan.
