Lift the anchor on gourmet travel

Irresistible dining concepts from award-winning chefs, hands-on cooking courses and food-focused shore excursions – experience the finest cuisine at sea with Oceania Cruises

Between restaurants renowned for quality and authenticity, exceptional personalised service and a simply stunning fleet of small luxury ships, it’s little wonder that Food and Travel readers have crowned Oceania Cruises Cruise Line of the Year Award five times over. And the latest set of OceaniaNEXT upgrades has elevated their culinary programme further still – inspired by cuisines from around the globe, there’s something in store for every palate.

The Grand Dining Room is a study in stateliness, a tribute to elegant continental cuisine and an icon among Oceania Cruises’ dining concepts. Expect a spectrum of global flavours and an all-new Executive Chef’s Tasting Menu, featuring an extensive array of plant-based dishes. Jacques Pépin’s signature restaurant, Jacques, embodies a passion for French cuisine, decorated with heirloom antiques from the chef’s personal collection, while elsewhere onboard, guests can tuck into succulent steaks at Polo Grill, let the specialities at Toscana transport them to Italy or head to Red Ginger for bold, contemporary interpretations of Asian classics. To whet your appetite, try your hand at the duck and watermelon salad or miso-glazed sea bass from Red Ginger’s menu.

For those looking to raise a glass to their voyage, the Dom Pérignon Experience at La Reserve will exceed all expectations, with six courses paired with Dom Pérignon vintages. From Brittany blue lobster in yellow curry broth to sashimi-style, seared Wagyu beef with sautéed rocket, blood orange-soya jus and Caviar Perlita, each bite is a celebration of the finer things in life.

Back onboard, replicate your favourite dishes at The Culinary Center. As Sicily disappears beneath the horizon, for example, join in a celebration of pasta, rice and seafood and learn the secrets behind the island’s renowned wines and olive oils. If you’re travelling on Vista, which will be joining Oceania Cruises’ fleet in April 2023, head to The Culinary Center Dining Room to savour your creations with spectacular ocean views.

Vista’s range of exclusive culinary experiences doesn’t end there. With four of her 12 restaurants all-new to the Oceania Cruises’ collection, expect best-in-class whether you opt for innovative American dishes blended with time-honoured classics at Ember, wellness-focused plates at Aquamar Kitchen – including this overnight blueberry and almond bowl – or rich pastries fresh out of the oven at The Bakery. Afterwards, kick back by the pool, soak up the atmosphere of the library or retreat to your quarters – spacious, residentially-inspired suites and staterooms with a sleek home-from-home design. Vista’s inaugural season begins in April 2023 and will span more than 24 countries across four continents, from the white sands of Asia to the glittering Hollywood hills. It’s a marvel in the making.
