Oceania Cruises will name its seventh ship the Vista when it will sets sail in 2023.

The Vista will be the first of two 1,200-pasenger Allura-class vessels under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy to set sail. Its sister is scheduled to follow in 2025. The Vista's inaugural cruises will open for sale in September.

Oceania said the name was meant to reflect "the dawn of a new age in travel."

"We are always looking over the horizon, and Vista represents our view to the future," Bob Binder, CEO of Oceania, said in a statement.

Oceania said the ship would introduce several firsts for the brand in the realms of dining and guest experiences and said more details would be revealed starting in May. The ship's public spaces include the Grand Dining Room, a two-deck high space that Oceania said pays homage to the "beautiful age" of early 20th-century Parisian society. It is one of nine culinary experiences on the Vista.

Oceania also said that the company's thousands of officers and crew played a pivotal role in the design of the ship.

"Our officers and crew are always bringing great new ideas to the forefront and then implementing them," Binder said.
