As one of the leading luxury cruise lines in the world, Oceania Cruises focus on the things that matter. That goes to say that their ships are relaxed, elegant, comfortable and take guests to some truly remarkable destinations; enriching their travelling minds and immersing them in their excellent surroundings.
Something else that Oceania Cruises has definitely got right is the way that food should be at sea. Fine dining is usually something that you would find in extravagant, Michelin starred restaurants, but these floating luxury hotels offer an abundance of sumptuous dishes over a wide range of dining areas; all overseen by Master Chef Jacques Pépin.
Guests can look forward to inviting plates that come bearing gifts such as ‘Duck à l’Orange with Braised Red Cabbage and Almond Potato Croquettes’ and ‘Steamed Maine Lobster on Castilla–La Mancha Saffron Rice’, whilst irresistible desserts like ‘Nine Minute Baked Valrhona Chocolate Cake with Raspberries and Vanilla Ice Cream’ won’t hang around for too long before disappearing and being replaced by an empty plate.
If sailing the world in style and delighting your taste buds along the way is what cruising is all about for you, then Oceania Cruises will definitely not disappoint.
