'As we are always looking for ways to elevate the guest experience we took the opportunity to completely re-master these suites and provide our guests with an entirely new experience,' Oceania president and CEO Bob Binder said. 'Everything from the furnishings to the artwork is new, and guests will feel as though they are sailing aboard one of the world’s most glamorous yachts or living in an opulent estate home.'
New colors, fabrics, upholstery
Sporting a color palette that is quintessentially Ralph Lauren, the suites are resplendent in navy, white, crème and camel. Fabrics and upholstery are a mélange of solids and stripes, with pops of silver and gold. Details such as the red, white and blue striped fabric selected for the veranda cushions harken back to Lauren’s label as 'America’s designer' and his charitable work in restoring the Star-Spangled Banner at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in Washington, DC.
The suites' dramatic foyer has a limestone and black cabochon inset floor, walls of inset Georgian wood paneling, a self-playing ebony piano and a mahogany and quartzite bar. The floor-to-ceiling windows are dressed with Ralph Lauren Grimaldi-weave sail fabric.
The living room is anchored by a new saddle-suede sectional sofa accented with deep navy cushions and accompanied by a mahogany Lounge Moderne chair upholstered in navy and white super-yacht stripe. The dining room's centerpiece is the Mayfair dining table with a new Barrett Knurled chandelier overhead. The master suite features a new Cote D'Azur king-size bed, elegant Mayfair Bergere side chairs upholstered in Sutton Suede Doe and dramatic nickel-trimmed lighting accents.
The wraparound teak verandas are furnished with stylish pieces custom-crafted by Ralph Lauren Home for Oceania Cruises.

Designed by Los Angeles-based Trevor R. Howells Interior Design, the owner’s suites, the cruise line said, reflect Ralph Lauren’s appreciation for sailing, Hollywood glamor and timeless, classical beauty.
The new owner’s suites will debut on Riviera in April 2019 and Marina in May 2020.
