I have previously said that there are certain milestones in the life of a ship, such as the first cutting of steel, the keel-laying and the float out. And while all of these are critical to those involved in building her, perhaps one of the most exciting milestones for the team behind Riviera is the day she hits the open ocean for the first time.
This weekend Oceania Cruises’ 1,250-guest Riviera embarked on her first set of sea trials. Robin Lindsay, our executive vice president of Vessel Operations, was onboard with our marine and technical teams, as well as technicians and engineers from the Fincantieri shipyard.
We wanted to share Robin’s photo with you. As members of the Oceania Cruises family, we know you share in our excitement and we all look forward to greeting you onboard soon.
