Oceania Cruises' Allura is now scheduled to enter service one week earlier than planned, on July 18, 2025.

The inaugural voyage will depart Trieste, Italy, sailing six days to Piraeus with calls at Rijeka and Dubrovnik, Croatia; Ravenna, Italy; and Kotor, Montenegro.

Plus, a new four-day 'taster' cruise

Oceania Cruises also opened for sale a one-of-a-kind four-day cruise roundtrip from New York City in September 2025.

Passengers booked on the original July 24 inaugural voyage were offered first access to booking the new maiden sailing before it went on public sale.

Mediterranean, Canada/New England, Caribbean

Following its summer Mediterranean season, Allura is scheduled for a series of Canada/New England voyages before spending winter in the Caribbean, sailing from PortMiami.

To enable new-to-brand travelers to sample the product, the added four-day 'Taste of Oceania Cruises' roundtrip sailing from New York is scheduled for Sept. 30, 2025.

Allura is Oceania's eighth ship and the second 1,200-passenger Allura-class vessel from Fincantieri, following 2023's Vista.
