Last week, the Oceania Marina successfully floated out of the shipyard in Genoa, Italy marking a milestone in the designer ships construction. When Marina debuts in January 2011, it will feature a renowned Canyon Ranch Spa Club and lavish suites by New York-based Tocar Interior Design, as well as nine unique dining venues. Surprisingly, all the extra attention to detail isn't being tacked on to the price tag the 14-night inaugural cruise is priced from just $1,499 including airfare!
