Cruising with Oceania
The line’s elegant fleet of ships provides passengers with an intimate, sophisticated and cultural cruising experience. Smaller in size and with luxurious decor, the ships are more akin to floating boutique hotels than cruise liners.
Priding itself on the finest cuisine at sea, Oceania’s Cruises is famed for its dining experiences - from sourcing premium artisanal ingredients from around the world and their expansive state-of-the-art galleys, to the expertise and inspiration from their Executive Culinary Director, Master Chef Jacques Pépin.
Oceania Cruises' gourmet restaurants serve dishes created à la minute and offer an array of choices, from Continental cuisine and authentic Italian to inventive American creations at Vista's new signature restaurant, Ember. Every restaurant onboard is complimentary and features open seating, so you can dine wherever and whenever suits you.
The line also offers culinary-themed shore excursions designed to immerse guests in the local food of the region.
