Yup, the Polo Grill is a classic steakhouse - and the menu is mouth-watering.
Each course at the restaurant stands as the very definition of time-honoured favourites, and its beef dishes are particularly stand-out.
The U.S-produced meat comes from the very finest Black Angus cattle the Midwest has to offer. All beef dishes are USDA Prime and dry-aged for 28 days to enhance tenderness and flavour.
This process imparts a buttery taste and meltingly tender texture that many beef connoisseurs herald as the ultimate beef experience. Oh my.
The Polo Grill menu boasts all manner of steak from rib eye and filet mignon to King’s Cut 32 oz Prime Rib.
Other meat dishes include a grilled Colorado rack of lamb and crispy roasted rotisserie “black foot” chicken with Alderwood smoked salt.
All come with a choice of toppings - crispy bacon, blue cheese crumble, sautéed onions.
The starters in Polo Grill also deserve a shout out should you fancy an amoooose-bouche before getting to the meat of the matter.
There's mushrooms bundled in shortcrust dough, oysters Rockefeller, and escargot in casserole with chive sauce and garlic vegetable julienne with fleuron to name just a few. Heavens.

Succulent seafood dishes such as grilled swordfish and whole Maine lobster gratinée are dishes of note in their own right.
The classic Caesar salad, too, is prepared according to tradition, tableside and with gusto.
There are a number of soups to choose from, including New England clam chowder and lobster bisque topped with morsels of sautéed lobster.
Sides are also wide-ranging. Get ready for lobster mac and cheese, steamed asparagus spears, truffle mashed potatoes and more.

And that's before you even get to the dessert. Blimey, maybe time to undo some buttons.
On this extensive menu, you're bound to find the perfect sweet course.
Particularly tempting is the chocolate fudge brownie with raspberry sauce and Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream; the seven-layer Belgian chocolate fudge cake; and the key lime pie with Florida orange butter sauce. Good luck choosing just one of these irrestistible desserts!
What's more, Polo Grill's wine list is extensive and the restaurant also boasts a brilliant whiskey menu should you able to squeeze any more in before rolling back to your comfortable cabin.
Oh yes, Oceania Cruises takes banqueting to a new level. Now, what are we all ordering?
