Built in 1999, the Sirena was purchased by Oceania in 2016 and immediately underwent massive renovations, making her one of the most modern ships in the Oceania fleet. Designed with dark wood panels, sweeping staircases and feaux fireplaces, her interior gives off the impression of a stately living room. She sails all over the world, primarily splitting her time between popular destinations in the Caribbean, Mediterranean and South America, and has a strong focus on longer, 3-5 week cruises.
The Sirena strikes the perfect balance between innovation and tradition with her focus on providing a traditional, low-key cruise experience accented with modern amenities. Beloved cruise ship traditions such as afternoon tea, an exquisite onboard library and live classical music will make you feel like you’re on an English ocean liner straight out of history, but modern staterooms, an extensive spa and wellness center, and the gourmet cuisine are thoroughly modern luxuries.
The staterooms on the Oceania Sirena are cozy and comfortable, providing the perfect haven for a restful night’s sleep after a long day at port or at sea. Decorated in dark blues and pale browns, the rooms give off an aura of effortless elegance and timeless style in every stateroom class. The luxury bedding will ensure peaceful sleep, but you’ll have a hard time leaving it again in the morning. Two-thirds of the staterooms have balconies, and the spacious suites feature magnificent marble bathrooms, sweeping ocean views, and round-the-clock room service.
Dining & Gastronomy
Oceania cruises are famous for the quality of the gastronomy on board, and the Sirena is no exception. Gourmet steak-and-seafood plates and fine Mediterranean dishes are combined at the innovative Tuscan Steak restaurant, which features the best of both the Toscana and Polo Grill restaurants found on other ships. The Terrace Café serves a variety of dining options in a buffet-style arrangement, and can be transformed into an open-air venue for al fresco dining if the weather allows. And the Grand Dining Room offers flexible sit-down dining, serving mouth-watering mains and delicious desserts, but offering low-calorie, vegetarian and vegan options as well.
Entertainment and Activities
Entertainment on the Oceania Sirena is low-key, sophisticated, and aimed at well-heeled adults. Expect regular musical performances from the string quartet, a piano soloist, and a number of solo singers on different nights. Afternoon tea is a daily ritual that is especially popular among passengers, drawing guests in with its irresistible promise of finger sandwiches, dainty pastries, and delectable desserts for a midday pick-me-up. A casino, a spa, and an assortment of bars and lounges round out the entertainment offerings onboard.
Those looking for a relaxing vacation will find plenty of opportunities for reading, needlepoint and playing cards, or just having a chat with one’s fellow passengers. The intimate atmosphere and cozy lounges offer ample opportunity to meet other cruisers and make friends on the journey, or to find a quiet nook to cozy up with a good book. The poolside lounge chairs and adjacent sun deck are perfect for a soak in the sun or an afternoon nap, without the rowdy kids or crowds of larger ships.
The Sirena dress code is casual and relaxed. Expect casual resort wear during the day, with shorts, t-shirts and sun dresses dominating, but swimwear and sandals limited to the pool area. Passengers dress a bit more formal for dinner, with men wearing nice pants and buttoned shirts, and women wearing a skirt or slacks and a nice dress. Although suits and dresses are welcome at evening dining, they are not required, and the Oceania Sirena does not have any Formal Nights.
