Oceania Cruises Introduces New Dining Options

Oceania Cruises Introduces New Dining Options

Considered the world’s leading culinary and destination-focused cruise line, Oceania Cruises is unveiling new dinner menus that are amongst the most expansive and diverse at sea.  The menus feature a spectrum of flavours as well as an all-new Executive Chef’s Food & Wine Pairing, available every evening and featuring the chef’s selection of exquisite dishes specifically created for their complementary and contrasting flavours.  Another stand-out attraction of the menus is the new ‘Global Cuisine’ dishes each evening – these are bolder and more adventurous ethnic dishes – for the traveller with a spirit for spice.


Each evening in the Grand Dining Room, guests will be treated to more than two dozen dishes to choose from – six starters, three soups, four salads, nine main courses and nine side dishes.  Every menu incorporates imaginative vegetarian dishes along with Canyon Ranch Balanced Selections that follow the mantra for indulgent, yet healthy living.  All in all, the menus comprise more than 800 dishes.


Travellers sailing for the first time with Oceania Cruises or the fiftieth will delight at the diversity of selections with fresh and bold flavours, in addition to classic dishes that have been favourites ashore and at sea for years. New additions include: herb-crusted Cornish hen diavolo, Palermo-style grilled swordfish, smoked ricotta risotto and Paul Bocuse’s Alaskan halibut Viennoise.  Other classics being reprised include involtini di melanzane alla parmigiana, traditional coq au vin, Wiener schnitzel and Dover sole meuniere.


Guests looking for a more adventurous dining experience, to create a special evening or something for the health conscious, can experience one of three new tasting menus.  Reflecting Oceania Cruises’ globe-trotting adventures, the new menus feature a ‘Global Cuisine’ tasting every evening that focuses on a particular region, specific country or particular cooking style - Asia, France, Cuba, India, United States, Spain, Thailand, Morocco, Polynesian, Greek, South America and Japan.  The Food & Wine Pairing menu offers up four courses selected by the master chefs which are expertly paired with four different wines to present a perfectly-paired gourmet tasting menu each evening.


Oceania Cruises is not a familiar name in British cruising circles which is a pity as ever since the company’s inception in 2002 cuisine has played a pivotal role in the success of this cruise line that is increasingly on the radar of those seeking culinary excellence.
