Welcome to Oceania Cruises
Cuisine, Comfort, Service and outstanding value are the pillars that define Oceania Cruises’ five-star product and have positioned the line as the cruise company of choice for travelers seeking a truly refined and casually elegant travel experience.
Our intimate and luxurious ships allow you to explore the world in unequalled style and comfort. Sophisticated, stylish and distinctly mid-size, you’ll find the onboard atmosphere is extremely convivial, and with an unrivaled level of personalized service as a result of us having two staff members for every three guests.
In April 2012 the 1250-guest Riviera joined our fleet. Sister ship to Marina, the magnificent Riviera features elegantly appointed and custom-crafted accommodations, including the largest veranda staterooms at sea. Specifically designed for epicureans, Marina and Riviera offer a total of ten dining venues, six of which are open-seating gourmet restaurants with never a supplemental dining charge.

Our FREE Airfare* program has been expanded to include a total of 91 gateways on select Caribbean & Panama Canal sailings.
Boldly claiming to serve “the finest cuisine at sea” might seem to be hyperbole. But we wouldn’t make such an immodest assertion if not for the tremendous contribution of the legendary Master Chef Jacques Pépin. As our Executive Culinary Director, he inspires our chefs to perform feats of gastronomic wizardry. Being mid-size, our ships afford our chefs the luxury of cooking for fewer guests. Never having to rush or create dishes en masse liberates them to meticulously prepare your individual order, exactly as you wish and just as you would expect in the finest restaurants, using only the freshest and finest ingredients. In harmony with its philosophy of encouraging a healthy, balanced lifestyle,Canyon Ranch® offers its delicious and nutritious gourmet cuisine onboard our ships. The Freedom of Open Memorable dining begins with open-seating, as it allows you to dine when you are ready and with whomever you choose. Regardless of where you dine, there are never surcharges.
The Grand Dining Room
The Grand Dining Room is a study in stateliness, a tribute to the spirit of Europe’s marquee restaurants in 5-star hotels that inspired its dignified yet convivial ambiance. Handsomely decorated in rich woods, classic fabrics and soothing colors, the expansive dining area exudes splendor. Tables are beautifully set with European bone china, sparkling Riedel crystal, gleaming silver, and fine cotton linens. Remarkably, as sumptuous as the Grand Dining Room’s décor is, guests always feel completely at ease within its grandeur. Much of that is a direct reflection of the formally-attired and classically-trained wait staff, graciously serving course after course of European-inspired Continental cuisine or alternatives such as healthy, savory Canyon Ranch® selections. Variety being paramount, menus change daily with a brilliant choice of at least six appetizers and eight entrées at dinner.
Polo Grill embodies all the elements of a classic steakhouse, expressing them with timeless reverence. Mindful of tradition, the décor features crisp, white linen tablecloths, dark wood furnishings and supple high-back burgundy leather chairs. Each course stands as the very definition of a time-honored favorite, most notably the beef dishes, all of which are USDA Prime and dry-aged for 28 days to enhance tenderness and flavor. Succulent seafood dishes such as Colossal Shrimp Cocktail and Whole Maine Lobster Gratinée are also classics in their own right. Caesar Salads too are prepared according to tradition, tableside and with gusto.
Exquisitely decorated with heirloom antiques, pickled wood furnishings and art from Jacques Pépin’s personal collection, Marina and Riviera’s Jacques was modeled after a Parisian bistro. Comfortable and eclectic, the ambiance is pure French, as is the cosmopolitan yet wonderfully embraceable cuisine. Luscious aromas waft from the gleaming show rotisserie, where chicken, duck, pork and veal roasts slowly turn. Each dish is a classic, ingeniously reinterpreted by Master Chef Pépin. This is Coq Au Vin beyond the imagination. Rotisserie-roasted chicken falls off the bone, bursting with flavor. His Steak Frites pairs the succulence of prime beef with the crisp sweetness of pommes deterre. Jacques is absolutely magnifique.
With a nod to feng shui, Red Ginger onboard Marina and Riviera radiates harmony and tranquility. The interior simply glows with ebony woods, hand-blown glass light fixtures and striking, modern Asian artworks. To complement the stunning decor, Red Ginger’s chefs have created contemporary interpretations of Asian classics. Begin with a Salad of Spicy Duck and Watermelon with Cashews, Mint and Thai Basil. Savor a Malaysian Beef Penaeng with Coconut Rice and Paratha Roti. Or try Lobster Pad Thai with Glass Noodles, Bean Sprouts, Lime, Tamarind and Peanuts. In Red Ginger, the gustatory pleasures are as striking as the visual ones.
Informal and carefree, the Terrace Café is wonderfully inviting any time of day. First thing in the morning, the room is infused with natural sunlight from the floor-to-ceiling windows, stimulating the appetite for the sumptuous breakfast selections. Come lunch, the expansive menu of international dishes changes entirely, beautifully complemented by flavorful roasted and rotisserie meats, and the magic of the pizzeria’s oven. Feel free to dine inside or alfresco at one of the shaded teak tables on the terrace. Evenings, the impeccably clad wait staff shines, and the cuisine takes on a Mediterranean flair. Tomorrow, an entirely different series of menus awaits the opportunity to delight you.
Sometimes, the ultimate luxury is casual dining, a style laid-back Waves Grill epitomizes. Located in a spacious, shaded area steps from the swimming pool, Waves Grill offers an extensive and mouth-watering luncheon menu. Watch the chefs grill gourmet burgers, tangy barbecue and succulent seafood to order in the open galley, accompanying them with side dishes like garden-fresh salads and crispy, hand-cut truffle fries dusted with grated aged parmesan. Then top it off with a decadent dessert such as a creamy homemade gelato, a made-to-order hot fudge sundae or a thick, hand-dipped milkshake.
24-Hour Room Service
After a day of enriching shore excursions ashore or relaxing activities onboard, you may dine in the privacy of your suite or stateroom. An extensive Room Service menu is available round the clock. For those guests in Owner’s, Vista, and Oceania and Penthouse Suites, Oceania's Butler Service allows guests to enjoy a course-by-course dining experience, with cuisine selections from the menu of the Grand Dining Room. Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner on your private veranda, as you take in spectacular seascapes.
